Planning my weekend ...

We are having one of my favorite weathers this weekend and I must take advantage. My first stop will be The New York Botanical Garden to check out The Orchid Show: Cuba in Flower by Cuban-born, Palm Beach-based designer Jorge Sánchez who has re-created the city of Havana, "infused with Caribbean rhythm and romance". I am beyond excited. Those who do know me personally know that I LOVE Orchids. Its my favorite flower... roses are not ;o) . There is something about that flower that makes it special. You would think that I would know a lot on Orchids, but the truth is that I only know that they last long and smell lovely . I did some research today ... read on:
In most cultures, going back hundreds of not thousands of years, the orchid appears as a symbol of beauty, royalty or love. As such, in ancient Europe, orchids were often used as a main ingredient in love potions. Orchids have been collected, grown and harvested by humans for a very long time. In ancient and present day Greece, orchids have long been associated with virility and fertility. In ancient and in modern Greece, women believed that if the father of their unborn child would consume the largest and newest orchid stems and roots, then their child would be a male. On the other side of the coin, the ancient Greeks believed that if the mother ate small orchid roots and stems, then she would give birth to a girl.
In the Victorian era in Europe, orchids were largely seen as a symbol of luxury and elegance, and not so much as a symbol of fertility and virility, although the ancient beliefs still held strong is some places. Today, the pink orchid is commonly designated as the 14th wedding anniversary flower, symbolizing affection and love.
The shape of orchids has always been pleasing to people due to the symmetry of the flowers to the stems and leaves. This has led to the orchid being a symbol of perfection and beauty for hundreds of years. With such a long history with people, it is not surprising that orchid symbology has religious overtones. Orchids have been said to represent many different things through the years in Christian theology, but the most popular and commonly recognized symbol is the spots on orchids representing the blood of Christ. As such, orchids are found in many Easter and even Christmas arrangements in many cultures and are commonly found in many churches as altar decorations.
One of the most famous orchids is the vanilla orchid. This orchid's history goes all the way back to the time of the Aztecs. The vanilla orchid grew wild in the part of Mexico where the Aztecs lived and was viewed as a symbol of strength. The ancient Aztecs were said to have drank a mixture of vanilla orchid flowers as a strength potion.
Regardless of the culture, the colors of the orchid has always captivated people who have interpreted them in a variety of positive ways. To this day, the most popular and lasting interpretations have been love, beauty, wisdom, and thoughtfulness. In China, the orchid symbolizes innocence and culture. The pink orchid has indicated pure affection for hundreds of years. The cattalya orchid still stands for mature charm, and is commonly found in Mother's Day arrangements. (From Ezine Articles)

Taking it to the next level...

" The relentless climb, the pain and anguish of taking it to the next level, no body takes pictures of that. No body wants to remember. We just want to remember the view from the top.The breath taking moment at the edge of the world. That's what keeps us climbing and it's worth the pain. That's the crazy part. It's worth anything. " - Meredith

"When you feel you love someone more than he loves u, it can make u a little crazy, it can make a lot crazy"- Teddy

Just Arrived : New Bag :o)

I have been looking for a cute tote to travel with that can fit my junk and my MacBook. Finally found one by Jessica K Cushman. Yup, she's the same lady in charge of the famous bangle with the sayings like my favorite one " Knocked off by CHANEL".

Dear Notebook

I have not been myself lately. Just been wondering why somethings happen for me and other things don't. Like for example , that famous thing called Love that magnificent people like me never seem to have the opportunity to experience. Went away for the weekend , only to come back feeling worse. Been in bed for 3 days since then . Today was the first time I saw the sun face to face because I had to go move the car. I have been making progress since yesterday and actually got some important things done from the comfort of my bed. I took the initiative to get out of the house. Of course the sun was down by then and it was to indulge in two new addictions... Target and stop and shop.
Right now I have moved from the bed and on to my desk. I have the radio blasting because music lifts my spirits. I pulled out a folder of inspirational articles I have been saving for years because I knew the day would come when I would want to read them. Today is that day. I have a business to run, I have a world to change and I can not afford to let something so little to hold me back from the other things I am supposed to have. I must keep moving forward because this like everything else ... will pass.

PRETTY on the outside, UGLY on the inside

I don't think Naomi Cambell should be paid for any more modeling jobs. I think her career should be over. Models should not only be pretty on the outside, they should be pretty on the inside as well. Who the hell does she think she is? Naomi should face big consequences for her actions. It's not right the way she treats other human beings.

I have no idea why it took someone so long to come up with this fabulous idea. This is amazing and quite useful. I remember always having a hard time finding decent sketch paper and a worse time finding a notebook that would make it easier to sketch some design ideas back when I was making clothing for my classes. I have not made a piece of clothing since 2005. I did not enjoy the sewing but I always loved the drawing. The reason I say that this notebook by Fashionary is a designers dream is because it makes things a whole lot easier for us. Check out the features by clicking on the link above !
