Creative Every Day 2014

Hello Lovelies!

I'm a bit late in updating this but here goes: I'm renewing my pledge to daily creativity and I'm signing in CED 2014! You'l find the CED logo on the right column of this blog.

I like a challenge that is calling to add more creativity in our everyday lives, art-wise or otherwise. To learn more about this challenge, you can read here.

So... to get my creative juices flowing I got myself a notebook from MUJI and started doodling away. Here is a preview of I've done sone far:

I'll post a whole new series of drawings soon!

Isn't that notebook lovely? I'm a stationery junkie!

Tuesday's Butterfly is... Extravagance!

Hello Lovelies,

I recently stumbled upon this extravagant Schiaparelli dress and thought it would be perfect for a "Tuesday's Butterfly". Isn't it just grand?

I also love this quote involving butterflies:

The Curtain

Hello Lovelies,
The following combination of word and image symbolizes the epitome of summer and its easy livin' to me:

"The curtains blow back
and the wind ushers in the
soft light of morning."

Hello Lovelies,

I've always liked this one... not sure I could have tea with her, more like.... Dry Martini, perhaps? This one? Rita Hayworth, of course!

Lyrics: Allan Roberts 
Music: Dorothy Fisher 

Please, don't kiss me ... 
But if you kiss me, Don't take your lips away. 
Please, don't hold me ... 
But if you hold me, Don't take your arms away. 
Comes the change in weather, Comes the change of heart; 
Who knows when the rain will start? 
So I beg you: Please, don't love me ... 
But if you love me, Then don't take your lips or your arms or your love away.

Tea with... Jim Jarmusch

Hello Lovelies!
You all know by now just how much I love tea but maybe you don't know enough about my love for indie movies. Oh yeah, I'm a crazy cinephile. And Jim sounds like a terrific guy to have tea with! 

So below is a crazy dialogue about tea/coffee and the like that is taken from one of his movies, one that started as student project in 1983, and ended up as a full length feature in 2003. Enjoy your caffeine guys!

GZA: Want some tea?

RZA: Yea, splash me.

GZA: It's all herbals, man. No caffeine.

RZA: That's what I'm talking about. No caffeine. Caffeine is ridiculous right now, man.

GZA: Tell me about it.

RZA: Caffeine leads to depression, makes you all irritable, have your heart beating fast. Faster heart rate, you know what I mean? And worse than anything, you drink that coffee, it gives you the shits, you know what I mean? So I try to stay away from that.

GZA: I'm off that shit, anyway.

RZA: Crisp and clean. No caffeine.
