This spring is definitely about black and white – à la Marc Jacobs or Michael Kors. I concocted my version of the trend for a brunch out with the Sweets. Lush fruits, moist cheese, fluffy whole wheat bread, muffins to make the deal sweeter… and Starbucks coffee. All in a scenic tower restaurant that turns around in an hour.
These delicious tarts – and other yummies that follow – are from the potluck I organized at my church. I’m turning into quite a social buzzer. Who would have thought since the kitchen and I mostly like our distances. I wish I had a passion for cooking. But something else always ends up grabbing my attention. Blogging, jogs, Starbucking and movies.
I saw a film Stoker with my gal Yasmina. It was a mysterious experience. Stylishly frigid- chilly chic really is the word – as in atmosphere. Nicole Kidman as glamorous as ever. Her pale skin always ends up me identifying to her. How wonderful it is to see her embracing that feature. To see it as unique and not something to change or hide. As I did my long younger years.
I am hugging life at this moment. Really thinking about mindfulness.
At church I’ll also be organizing an event I’ve named Soul Cafe. It will be a forum to talk about inspiration. How to find our uniqueness. What is inspiration and how to get to it?
To me inspiration is that boosting event or experience that pushes you into doing things that flow from within. It is that desire to go forth and create. The conviction that what I do matters and is of utmost importance.
How does inspiration come about? Mine stems from beautiful, or my eye-pleasing surroundings, kind and encouraging exchanges and comments from others concerning my art, writing or other endeavors. I am also inspired by creative and sunny people – the ones that have that positivity and generosity radiating around them.
Look, the hubs is bathing in the pale spring sun…
Kind words can do so much. As a teacher I don’t always realize how important every me-made comment is. I can hoist up, or crash down.
My Sweets got me this chic croco skin phone cover. Along with a Starbucks coffee mug. Everyday glamour it is when using those gold bits.
My business has been a bit down so I have run across the city placing ads. I got one new contact already. Hopefully many more will follow.
I’m about making everyday sweeter with unique fashion, creative art and encouraging teaching. I travel this world to see all of its beauty – one gorgeous person at a time.
