NEW SOMETHING´S TO GIVE!DIANE KEATONS HOME DECOR LINE
We have all loved Diane Keaton as she starred away in the big screen, but seriously? Can we love her even more? It is no secret that Diane has a soft spot for decor, her taste is flawless! She almost makes it seem like she would not make a movie unless stunning homes were in her contract. I speak for myself now but I collapsed with love over the Hampton's beach house Keaton’s character lives in the movie Something´s Gotta Give! I went back to see it again like 5 times just to look at the house again, total obsession! And now we may not only remember Diane as Woody Allen´s muse, she has taken her enthusiasm for decor to action, now the actress has taken a step further and branched out as she launched her own home decor line at Bed, Bath and Beyond. It’s industrial chic with subtle colors and patterns and no need to say... terribly affordable. Who was to know that her amazing taste would have a bargain shoppers twist huh? I am gonna have to say that I want to be like her when I grow up! One million points to her brave and hero self! We love her for making this world a prettier place!
HEADBOARDS TO BE ADORED
How can we give a little push to our body to go to sleep? I have infinite insomnia problems and can´t seem to find that time at night where my head just stops! My mind is like a race horse thinking of this and thinking of that. I am pretty sure there´s a big bunch of other people out there that have this kind of workaholic brain and though our body may feel tired and ready to be put out, the mind doesn't let it rest. I don´t know if it happens to some of you but the bed where we sleep makes a big difference in how much rest we are going to get and to me, the way the bed looks is very important. I know how vain right?.....But its true! So i gathered some fun ideas to how you can create a great headboard for your bed and be happy to where your brain rests, whether you are the trendy type or the classic type you can be able to find a headboard that suites your personality, I tend to think of sleep like if its where i renew my self and be born again! I hope you enjoy these ideas and finally put that to rest.
TO DINE DIVINE
Dinner is probably my favorite meal time, knowing that is not the best time for our metabolism to take in, I emphasize strongly in the importance of it not necessarily to nourish the body but our mind, soul and spirit. Coming from Cuban parents i grew up around the table. Cubans don´t just eat, we eat like if we were kings! There is no such thing as a light meal, or tea time, it goes way beyond that! We discuss business, family issues, family rumours, politics mainly Cuban politics, we brake all the rules of "Politically correct" we talk about religion, politics, race, gender and nationality. I know so wrong... and yet so much fun! The longer the conversation goes on, the louder we get and trust me, somewhere between dessert and the Cuban "cortadito" the conversation became a celebration. That´s the way it is, always and I mean it.. Always! Everything is a celebration to us, and this shows in how seriously we take the character of perfect Host. Cubans are amazing hostess, no matter who you are, if you are a king or his servant both will be treated the same. Cubans take this very seriously! Nothing can be half-ass, they do it all the way! From the wine they serve to the silverware they use to the table cloth or flowers. The more i think about it, the more I am proud of it! That´s the way we should all feel, we must put the love and time when we dine. Every guest has to feel important and loved. I have never heard a Cuban song that does not make you wanna dance! I try to apply this celebration in my dining room decoration, since it´s really were we spend most of our time with our loved ones and where we create most memories and that is sacred to me, so we should pay our respects to the space and make it a sacred place. Like we say in Spanish "Buen provecho"
For the love of nature! These are all most have´s.
