Things I like just browsing

There is this hobby of mine: if I had a lot of money I would spend a great deal shopping via internet. I have loved it since the beggining. The finds, the difficult sizes, the "weird" designers.
Here some examples of great stuff:

 This is the only one I have, the Sincerely Jules short slevve sweat shirt in olive : )

my Shrimps article for Interjet inflight magazine

Obsessive compulsive for Gucci

It´s been a while since I had a "crush" on a specific design or concept.  Alessandro Michele is my new found hero! I just loved the whole s/s16 collection. I want a pair of kangaroo fur-lined loafers- so bad.  Everything is sensual, subtle, naughty and nice. The flower tiaras, lace up shoes with little bows. Standing ovation.

Oh Kate!

I insist, whatever transformation she has...I´m still a fan. I wish she would have taken better care of herself.... though.  I miss having someone to look up to (fashion wise).

London calling 1

London Fashion Week

This was my first time to this Fashion Week. Nothing unusual or different. The same circus and depotism. The only difference is that London has the new talents, experimental designs. It gives opportunity for new designers to rise. It´s not haute coture or elaborate well constructed ideas, but it´s fun, and who knows, maybe some of the new "stars" will continue in the long run.

The best part of LFW was the Burberry show, by far. Christopher Bailey outdid himself once more. Amazing everything,!designs, show and, of course, front row!

Inspiration high

There are some days in life that you get the chance to meet someone who gives you an "inspirational high" This was the day for me. I met a 23 year old philosophic creative genius. Here a little taste of his work:

More on him later.....

dream life

My childhood, spending summer in La Jolla, California. Spoiled as hell. You grow up immersed in a beautiful life,  now it´s just a dream life.
You always want to repeat every positive and good experience that ever happened to you, but many times life won´t let you. I know I try very hard to get back into this beautiful atmosphere and have my children experience the same wonderful summers that I did.
This was the scenic route in my morning walk for 1 week during my vacation at La jolla, CA.

The walls that keep us trapped

"Amazing things that happen when you fall in love when you’re more mature, less sure of yourself, but ready to give and forgive, and once again, ready to be vulnerable".

I would like to know how to break down walls: trust walls, economic walls, emotional walls & fear walls. And don´t tell me yoga and meditation will see me through. Bulshit!
Maybe you only get used to living inside the walls and feel happy to someday break down one or two of them. Make sure not to build any more walls and make peace with the construction you already have, be kind and gentile to yourself.

At the barre

It´s the new "cool saying" meet me at @the barre.  I started classical ballet lessons since I was little, then dropped it for a few years, then went back and so on.  Ballet is a femenin, beautiful and therapeutic discipline that shapes the body beautifully.
 The new barre excersice is amazing, it gives you the perfect bun, leg, arms and stomach. With classical ballet I never, in many years,  achieved what barre has done in 3 months.

At last! A dream come true. And so I hear it´s not easy to get a press pass for LFW.  Well I did it, A year and a half of hard work at the magazine, exclusive articles, writing stress & big time anguish each month.....but here it is: the prize.

organic art furniture

Amazing organic furniture made of parota tree wood. Could be in a museum. Elegant, perfectly crafted by a european hippie surfer with the help of a few locals settled in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca. The price $$$$$$ OMG.... what would you pay for a piece like this if you found it in a store in the Meat pPcking District or SOHO, for example.  I bought a piece to put beside my  "Le petit Comfort" love seat by Le Corbusier.

the “real person” living an impossibly glamorous life

A happy time you recall but never experienced.  Now thanks to instagram, tumblr & pinterest we can make this a reality.   I do see this vacation in another way, different from the way I saw it 5 or 10 years ago. How? seeing through the eyes of these social networks.

Has social media changed the way we perceive what sorrounds us? is doing yoga on the beach something to emphasise a lot about? 
This was just a very nice invitation to a very nice home at a very nice place.
