Arte é um mundo!

A arte não é para ser compreendida, uma vez que ela surge dos mais inúmeros artistas e todos eles diferentes entre si, cada um com o seu traço único e com a sua sensibilidade, daí dizer que ela tem como único objetivo exprimir. 

Na arte não há um estilo simples ou complexo nem mesmo estranho ou vulgar, na Arte existe ideias vulgares e ideias complexas e existem sensações simples e sensações complexas, tudo isto é uma variante conforme o estilo, a expressão, o sentimento de cada criativo.

O sentimento exposto na obra pode ser interpretado de duas maneiras, quando um criativo escreve, pinta, esculpe pode estar sob duas condições, consumido pelo sentimento ou consumido pela Arte, a Arte nasce sempre de uma paixão por muito vaga que essa seja torna-se sempre num mundo diferente, infinito onde cada centímetro é um turbilhão de sentimentos.  

Somente pela Arte podemos sair de nós mesmos.

Penso que a Arte se baseia na vida, não como um corpo mas como uma forma, pois esta é produto direto do nosso pensamento ou seja a Obra de Arte é um pensamento tornado vida, quase como um desejo tornado realidade. O mundo é formado de Arte, nós não nos damos conta de como a Arte nos trespassa de todo o lado, a musica, a literatura, uma simples flor, um outdoor são alguma das infinitas formas de Arte que nos chegam das quais não nos apercebemos.

A Arte é a essência da vida tornando-a diferente a cada dia que passa.

the hat is an issue

I'm a hat girl.

No doubt spring and summer means wearing a hat. Doesn't matter the size, the shape, the color, the style, you have to wear it over and over.

It goes well and perfect with all looks, as long it matches with your look.

I'm a hat lover and for sure next season I'll wear it every single time I can.

For sure, when summer arrives and vacations, it will be a must all the time.

So, start to choose your for the sunny and warm days because soon, soon, spring will be here!

Here goes some pics to inspire you, from @vintagefashion on instagram.

Happy Birthday, Kate

It's Kate Moss birthday!

She's my biggest style inspiration since ever. Thanks so much Kate for the inspiration through all these years!

So, the #tws pays a fair tribute to the topmodel and style muse Kate Moss.

Kate was born on 16 January 1974 in Croydon, Greater London, England. She was discovered in 1988 at age 14 by Sarah Doukas, founder of Storm Model Management, at JFK Airport in New York City.

She rose to fame in the early 1990s as part of the heroin chic fashion trend. She is known for her waifish figure, and role in size zero fashion. She had campaigns for designers including Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein, Chanel and Rimmel. She received an award at the 2013 British Fashion Awards to acknowledge her contribution to fashion over 25 years.

Kate Moss has had her own clothing range and has been involved in musical projects. She has won accolades for modelling. In 2007,TIME named her one of the world's 100 most influential people. She has inspired cultural depictions including a £1.5m ($2.8m) 18 carat gold statue of her, sculpted in 2008 for a British Museum exhibition.

She has a daughter, Lila Grace Moss Hack in 2012, she came second on the Forbes top-earning models list, with estimated earnings of $9.2 million in one year.

Kate Moss was voted 9th of Maxim's "50 Sexiest Women of 1999" and 22nd in FHM '​s "100 Sexiest Women of 1995". Arena named her sexiest woman in its 150th issue. She was on the November 1999 Millennium cover of American Vogue as one of the "Modern Muses". In March 2007, Moss won the Sexiest Woman NME Award. In 2012 she was included on MODELS.com's 'The Supers' list.

She has earned awards for style, including the Council of Fashion Designers of America's fashion influence award and a place on the Vanity Fair international best-dressed list.Kate is such an inspiration that she has been the subject of portraits by artists such as Lucian Freud and Chuck Close. 

Kate supported War Child and also designed a charm in a necklace for Wallis in 2007 in aid of Cancer Research UK and said "I am happy to give my support to help fund crucial research, as so many lives are affected by this terrible disease."

She has also helped to launch the SamandRuby charity in March 2006. The charity was started to provide funding for the education and shelter of Thai children. The SamandRuby organisation is named after a friend of Moss's, Samantha Archer Fayet, and her 6-month-old daughter Ruby Rose who were killed by the tsunami while visitingThailand.

Kate supports the Elton John AIDS Foundation, the Hoping Foundation, the Lucie Blackman Trust, Make Poverty History, Comic Relief and Homes of Hope. On 22 November 2006, Moss recorded an appearance in a Little Britain sketch for Comic Relief at the Hammersmith Apollo as a character called Katie Pollard, sister of Vicky Pollard played by Matt Lucas. Kate also made a short film with Misery bear for the March 2011 Comic Relief event entitled "Misery Bear's Comic Relief Starring Kate Moss".

The exceptional Revenant

The 73rd Golden Globe Awards took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on last 10th January and it was as amazing night for The Revenant.

So well deserved the Golden Globe for Best Actor Drama for Leonardo DiCaprio for The Revenant, the best director for Alejandro Inarritu and for sure the best movie for The Revenant!

Amazing and powerful acceptance speech of Leonardo DiCaprio calling everyone attention to protect native lands and their legacy. So deep words spoken with emotion by the brilliant actor.

Really can't wait for the premiere at Portugal to go see it, I had read the book and fall in love with the story. I was reading it and trying to imagine how Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy would play their parts and only masters of cinema can bring alive that incredible story.

Here goes my fav from that night from Leonardo DiCaprio always so elegant, to Harrison Ford, to the ladies specially Jennifer Lawrence in a stunning red color, Julianne Moore and Kate Winslet both in a beautiful blue to the beautiful family of Sylvester Stallone dating the dad.

Hollywood knows how to present us with glamour and it was there, but there's more to come, more awards and the final big night, the Oscars.

See you there!

Lot's of luv,

jeans addiction

Addicted to jeans since ever.

Couldn't live without they, always mix them with so many different styles and looks.

Lately, much more into the vintage models and re-inventing the way to wear them.

If you have old pieces in your wardrobe, try it! Be creative!

If you don't, you should go add them to your closet, you will love it!

We are used to see Marilyn Monroe in beautiful dresses, but as for me, she wears even casual looks in a so lady style better than everyone else.

Here goes some good inspiration to try this new year!

winter: the origins

Winter days & nights are around us, as we walk towards to Spring.

Meanwhile, let's enjoy the best of cold days and be creative in our looks, hobbies & to do stuff.

And by the way, where it comes from? So funny, I live you here the origins of this!

Have fun this season, dear friends!

The word winter comes from an old Germanic word that means "time of water" and refers to the rain and snow - as well as low temperatures - of the season in middle and high latitudes. In the Northern Hemisphere, it is commonly regarded as extending from the winter solstice (the year's shortest day), December 21 or 22, to the vernal equinox, the start of Spring. 

The word winter came into English c 888.
