 When it comes to family, we're all children at heart... We try to look all strong and cold, but in our hearts we're still the child who's candy was stolen and now he's the only one in his group without a candy bar in his hands.
 No matter how old we get, we always need a place to call home. That's why we always come back home, no matter where we go, where we travel, no matter how far, you'll always find your way back home...
 I used to think Home is just in one place, the place where you're born. Now I realize home is wherever you're leaving parts of your heart, thinking at the time when you're at one home, at another.
  Even though we make some "other" families, like the "friends family", we always miss the people from home, the concerned parents, the annoying sister, the friends you grew up with, the little group you know it's gonna be yours forever, the old and wise grandparents, the places you're remembering forever and the pretty Christmas Tree in the winter.
 They say old habits die hard. I guess HOME is the "oldest" habit I've known for a while now...

remembering Marilyn

 The life story of Norma Jeane Baker, the girl who would become Marilyn Monroe, is as thrilling, glamorous and dramatic as anything seen on the big screen, and the camera was there to capture every chapter.

A star like no other.
I find her the most beautiful and sexiest woman in the history. She was a size 14. Nowadays, "beautiful" is size 2 or 4. Why is that?
"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."(Marilyn: Her Life In Her Own Words)

The last photo shoot for Vogue in 1962:

There has never been another like Marilyn, and there never will be.

♥ for American Eagle

Let's talk about my favorite brand.
One word to describe this brand: quality. The materials and the design of the clothes blows my mind.
Every time I was entering an AE store I was having an actual stroke of happiness. I was spending a lot of money in this store and I was visiting AE three times a week.

This is definitely the coolest brand for young women who want to have always a sexy casual look.
The official american way to dress up in the summer time: flip- flops, shorts and a top, ALL from American Eagle. It's like an uniform. So I was bound to dress up the same. So let me show you my outfit in a hot summer day in the U.S.A.:

  • love them , they're vintage because of the color and I'm obsessed with faded light blue wash and we love them rolled  

  • all my tops are simple and comfortable, so in the summer you can breath and feel yourself :-)

  • perfect footwear, I feel so comfortable in these, that I barely leave the house without them 
Ok. So I just showed you my summer time outfit, from American Eagle, the most comfortable brand that I know. There are many brands for my kind of outfits, but this one just bought my soul.

me, myself and I

   Girls have usually lots of dolls, hair products, lip glosses, books and clothes for infant baby, this in the spirit of dreaming of actually finding Prince Charming and giving birth to a little dude from the fruit of their passion.
   Well, that is lovely, indeed.

   Me? I've chosen a different path: I like to buy and collect articles, magazines and all kind of stuff about traveling.
    I have a big bag full of LIFE Magazines about "The World's Must -See Destinations", "Heaven on Earth", National Geographic Magazines, National Geographic Traveler, GEO Magazines and books with the big and wonderful cities, which I've been caring on the planes and in my suitcases, and let me tell you it wasn't easy, they're books, that means they're heavy, that means I've paid extra at the airport every time. :-))

 My dreams are all like that. And I have the courage to make them alive. By myself.

the essential elements in the closet.

Ok... So an idea just crossed my mind. How about a list with top 10 items from *the perfect closet*?
 Sounds like fun to me. This way, if something's missing, now it's the perfect time to make a list with things to buy. I don't think I need more clothes, but who knows?! :-)
Let's find out!One thing though: only clothes, because for shoes we need a totally separate list.

Let's do the invetontory and see what should we add to our lovely collection:
1. Black pants: they're the basic of the basics
2. Denim, usually dark but I have a pair of jeans in every shape and color
3. Dress: the dresses that we wear should be classy and sexy in the same time
4. Cardings: I love them, I couldn't breath without them
5. Trench coat: it's just a must; I myself have 3 of them
6. Skirts: we should wear them more often, we are girls most of the time :-))
7. Jacket/ Blazer: mine is usually leather, I have 4 of them in different colors
8. Tops: they fit with everything
9. Luxury handbags: I have only 4 of them, the rest of my handbags are casual
10. A great fitting bra: this is a must, the bra is so important, that sometimes it makes all the difference in the outfit

Ok. So this is MY list. I wish there was a magical list that would work for every woman, every budget and every lifestyle.
Enjoy your clothes every day! :-)

Why do we say goodbye?
Did anyone ever thought about why do we have the constant need to say: "Back off, bubble head!", why do we reject people?
I find that not anyone can say Goodbye. You must have to "the balls" to say it. It takes courage to say it, and to let go...

So yes, I'm letting go. Are you making me cry?
Then my perfect answer would be: Fuck off!
And Goodbye.

Ever wonder how the perfect summer would look? Probably in words we can all describe it, I guess.
But I found again, one picture that describes best my perfect summer day.

Oh yeah... beach, relax, girl, smoking, summer.  :-)
Now I just need to wait for the summer!
Are you waiting with me?

smells like spring

 The spring is coming! I felt it from this morning, it's got potential this day I said to myself. And yees... I was right.
  So I started doing what I like most: browsing the Internet looking for blogs, reviews and fashion pics.
  And just like that, with the help of two of "my best friends" ( my laptop and chocolate bars with coconut ), I lounged around the house doing fashion blogs all day. There's nothing I like more than having time for myself.
  So please, let me introduce you  the pic of the day.

family guy.

I find pictures that I love and I usually stare at them for hours, thinking of how would I look in a photo like the one I'm staring at.

So here I am , after exactly a month of disappearing, showing you a picture that is not just a photo with two lovers or whatever actors, but one with two stylish young & beautiful couple!

I just love her outfit especially, but he made a good impression on me as well:

1. he's dating her :-P

2. he's wearing flip- flops with jeans. I love these guys!
They say a guy with flip- flops and jeans or a sweater in the same outfit is a family guy. :-)

we all have dreams

Some have big dreams, some are so modest, that they just don't dare to dream.
Why? Where is the sign for "Stop dreaming"? Dreams are food for soul, food for us being able to love, to have a path and even for us as human beings.
They say we could make it happen if we dream. So I started to dare dreaming about something. Because who knows? I may actually succeed.
 I used to think I'm not able to do that, or go there, or have a certain group or a certain guy etc. But now I know that everything my dream machine has produced in my head, they all happen. :-)
Our dreams are so strong sometimes, that ambition is the label that gets super glued on our foreheads. And we all know labels stick.
Yes, I dare to tell you that my dream is to write for women magazines, articles and editorials. And even though is almost impossible now, at least I have something to believe in, far beyond my actual job, that has nothing to do with writing... hihihi
I dare to have a dream.
What about you? What is your dream? :-)

We all know summer is about fun, sand in our shoes, naked boys and popsicle on the boardwalk. But what if there's more? They say summer fling is all you can get in the summer, but sometimes what starts as a fling can actually lead to the real thing. But let's not get our hopes up... Summer is all about fun. :-D

and who doesn't want to spend their summer at the beach, making friends and get all tan? 

yes... my summer was the greatest.  chinese or McDonald's ( I didn't even care about calories, because as long you have a great tan, everything looks good on you :-), walks on the beach, many margueritas and my girlfriends. Only us, and the rest of the crowd, parties every night, boys looking hot in the sun and the heat burning our feet in the sand.

But everyone can agree on one thing: the end of summer is the begging of a new season. Tans fade, the fling is getting serious enough to run away, and we all get sick of ice cream melting and sand in our shoes...

So why not wait for the next summer? I bet you haven't seen nothing yet...

the Disco era

Did you ever listen to old music, like Abba or Wham! and thought: "Those were the good times" ?
 I did. And let me tell you that the feeling is regret that I wasn't born in the 70's or 80's. The Disco Era is something that could be described like fabulous. The songs, the people, the mentality, the fashion... OMG, the fashion was just breathless.
You have seen some people on the street, dressed like "a million years ago" and you started laughing. Well, yes... they look funny for the modern world, but they're 100% natural. I like them. :-)
yes, I really like "the disco fever". And everything that goes with it, the platform shoes, the flared jeans, one-piece swimsuits, the hot pants and the bell-bottomed trousers.

about shoes.

Like most of the things that "talk" for us, shoes are like visiting cards. More shoes, more choices, more outfits, more ABOUT US. It's only the joy of wearing a nice pair of designer shoes and everything is now just wonderful and shiny, even though outside is raining or the subway is just chaos.
yes... Boots are my first choice for everything. That just tells you more about me. Like the shoes you're wearing tell me more about you. :-)
So next time you find yourself looking at one's shoes, think about how that person really is and how his/her shoes represent the person you're sitting in front of.
Do your shoes represent you?

Ellis Island

I have a small book, that I bought when I was visiting the Ellis Island and The Statue of Liberty. It's called "I was Dreaming to Come to America". I've read that people came to America for no reason other than starting a new life. For millions of immigrants, Ellis Island meant the beginning of a new life.
 I remember now why was I so touched about everything from this museum. After almost an year that I spend in America, making friends and learning about "the american way", I had a strange feeling... I wanted to stay there. why?
 This is the only country where you're not a stranger, because we are all strangers. It's only a matter of time who got here first.

New Year's Resolution

Yes, the time has come for me to put my feet on the ground and just smile and be all excited about New Year Resolution. haha
So, let's see my resolutions to:
  1. improve my education: get that "stupid" diploma that everyone dreams about 
  2. improve career: get a decent job with a decent paycheck
  3. improve self: ok, this might take a while :-)); reduce stress dramatically, become more organized, manage time, do things that make me happy, BLA BLA BLA 
So no, it's not that I don't think that people can actually stick to their plans, it's just that I am used to not be able to follow every single one of the resolutions. So, from now on, I will just stay calm and remember that I need to finish things that I've started. For now...
