How to Buy an Original Art Piece

Her comment about the art "connecting with you" echoes in my busy head. The process of purchasing art has nothing to do with home decor trends or aesthetics or color schemes; it's a highly personal experience.

A wall of art blocked my view of the green sand dunes and beach volleyball courts; live music rode each beach breeze with excitement. My husband and I meandered through the artists’ booths and arepa stands. Each white tent hosted a myriad of imagery. We admired a few items here and there, a necklace with …

22 Scandinavian Interior Design Inspirations

It's a simple approach to design that prioritizes function and affordability, while maintaining an ambiance of artistry and arrangement.

Simply fresh is how I describe Scandinavian interior design. Scandinavian design was born out of need, but has evolved into a sophisticated, useful design strategy. Five countries are responsible for its development: Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Iceland. The cold weather, the aftermath of WWII and modernism scaffolded the method. Impressive Interior Design explains, Life in …

22 Perfect Makeup Looks for Fall: Starring Jennifer Lopez

With fall, many of my neon nail polished get neglected for mauves and charcoals. The change of season calls for new inspiration that only a statuesque pop icon with longevity and talent can give us. I've been following JLo since the beginning, all the way back to when she was married to a waiter at Lario's Restaurant on Miami Beach. It seems that with time and experience, Jennifer Lopez becomes more and more beautiful. Her cheekbones become more pronounced as her wisdom grows.

Throughout autumn, my neon nail polish gets neglected and replaced by “fall colors.” The change of season calls for new inspiration that only a statuesque pop icon with longevity and talent can give us. I’ve been following JLo since the beginning, all the way back to when she was married to a waiter at Lario’s …

Flamingo Friday: Highlights and Photos of the Week

I'm thinking of focusing on fun photos from the week. I figure that each photo can reveal some insight, creativity or lesson from the week. While, they won't be the most professional or artistic photos, they will definitely illustrate insider details of my lifestyle which will hopefully inspire you too.

18 Of My Favorite Tweets

Twitter will sometimes pull the poet out of me. It's such a mainstream source for disposable word vomit, but some Tweets really do carry a lot of substance. When you spit out a tweet into the thin air of social media, it may, if you're lucky, get retweeted once or twice. It might even grab a few...

My Creativity Binges

I’m on a creativity binge. It’s been ongoing for two days. It started with this painting of a gun I’m working on, but that ended in disaster. I painted the corner black, and it gave it a little something, but blah. I was totally unimpressed. Then I wandered into remembering the Christmas gifts I gave …

It’s a touching comedy about attitude, perspective, identity and family. As I grew into womanhood, I discovered the …

At Home with Marilyn Monroe

Her heirs fight tooth and nail to protect the use of her image, however it seems Monroe's image has grown beyond that of a movie star into a universal symbol for sensuality, femininity, fashion, American culture and good business.

11 Totally Original Pastel Color Palettes

A love for pastels has become somewhat of a subculture online. One can easily find tumblr blogs, pinterest accounts etc. dedicated solely to pastels. Whether in the composition of an art piece, a bedroom or a cupcake, pastels are sure to bring peace to any space. I've created a bank of pastel palettes to inspire my future creative endeavors.
