I am thinking I am going to print this one for my room, just not sure which one. Which one would you pick?
I love how some light shed on a little leaf can turn something rather ordinary onto something extraordinary. A little piece of nature to add romanticism to the day (or night).
It is no secret I love reading, so I am starting a series called Books I ♡.
I love this book because of its simplicity (very Chanel), the insight it has on Coco Chanel and her spirit, and of course wonderful photography.
The book explores the camellia (Chanel flower on the cover), the Chanel suit, jewelry (BEAUTIFUL and breathtaking pieces there), the fragrances and the little black dress. Going from past to present.
To me it is fascinating to read a book that many people would call on “fashion” but that really is much, much more than that, it is part of the world’s history, of who we are today in terms of how we dress and how we think, how we move and how we behave, how this revolutionary woman changed the aesthetics for women and why we are not wearing the oppresive corsets these days…

I love the milestone in the history of art that still life represents, the style, the composition, the creation and the ability of artists to portray that composition.
I love it how a picture can be different pictures depending on the variations of its tones, shades, and colours.
I took this pic on the road, while driving. I love how my eyes have been trained all these years to see the world in frames, frames that are captured on the go many times. Instants that will last forever in my mind.
There is a town up in the Andes called Jauja, it is said to have been the first capital of Peru. Some of its buildings are breathtaking beautiful, such as the one below:
