My Hair is Growing Big :)


My hair is growing fast and that makes me happy because long hair is very versatile. You can style it in some many different ways. One of these days I am going to make it straight again, just for fun. I heard about Brazilian Hair Straightening and I would love to try it because it's not permanent and it's done with natural products :)

Suspenders :)

Pants con fondosmall

I have loved suspenders since I was little and I still enjoy wearing them as an adult :) They add a little bit of fun to your outfit, it is just a little detail but as always, the key is in the details :)

Just in case you feel like trying this idea I want to give you a link to hundreds of suspenders in different colors and at great prices, I think that I am going to get the mustard ones :) But I also feel inspired to play with these gold ones :)

Here, finding some inspiration in my 19th century friends. Ruffles and flowers and belts and all kinds of things. One more element and Natalie is going to say that I look like a crazy lady :) I wonder how much time my friends spent putting their looks together back then. Fashion in the 19th century required a lot of time and energy. For example: carrying the hat with the planted garden on top seems like a lot of work to me :) But on the other hand I think that they had lots of fun! 

Would you like some tea? :) With cookies maybe? :)

Have you ever seen those beautiful antique botanical drawings in person? That's the job that I would love to do in the future if I am ever born again :) I would love to spend hours drawing and coloring plants and flowers and seeds...I will live in a little cottage in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by nature. I will go out in the morning to collect my specimens and then I will spend hours studying and drawing them in the afternoon. If that ever happens I am going to change my name to Margie and then life will be perfect :)

Lots of love!

* P I N K * Cotton Candy and Little Girls:

Pink is a softer, less violent red. Pink is the sweet side of red. It's cotton candy and bubble gum and babies, especially little girls.

Using Pink:

Both red and pink denote love but while red is hot passion, pink is romantic and charming. Use pink to convey playfulness (hot pink flamingoes) and tenderness (pastel pinks). Multiple shades of pink and light purple or other pastels used together maintain the soft, delicate, and playful nature of pink. Add strength with darker shades of pinks and purple and burgundy.

Photo: Alicia Alonso in 1955

Have you ever heard of Alicia Alonso?

She is a Cuban prima ballerina assoluta and choreographer. She is considered a legend and is most famous for her portrayals of Giselle and Carmen. Since she was nineteen, Alicia was afflicted with an eye defect and was partially blind. Her partners always had to be in the exact place she expected them to be, and she used lights in different parts of the stage to guide her. (Wikipedia)

You can watch her dance here.

Alicia Alonso is one of the most inspiring women alive, she still has a busy life doing great things (she is totally blind now). This post is a modest homage to her.
