Botticelli Right Now

Hello everyone. After a very long break I am inspired to return to this blog and share some good vibes with the world. Right now I am deeply moved by Botticelli.

Audrey Hepburn Portraits of an Icon


 Hepburn Portraits of an Icon 

This fascinating photographic exhibition will illustrate the life of actress and fashion icon Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993). From her early years as a chorus girl in London’s West End through to her philanthropic work in later life, Portraits of an Icon will celebrate one of the world’s most photographed and recognisable stars.

A selection of more than seventy images will define Hepburn’s iconography, including classic and rarely seen prints from leading twentieth-century photographers such as Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Terry O’Neill, Norman Parkinson and Irving Penn. Alongside these, an array of vintage magazine covers, film stills, and extraordinary archival material will complete her captivating story.

_Fresh Inspiration for April

Throughout my life flowers have always played a big role. I remember my mother tending to her garden when I was a child. She would make me pick up the leaves in Spring and Fall, trim, fertilize but most vividly I can recall the beautiful flower arrangements that always adorned our home. Right now I am inspired to go out in the garden and tend to my own blooms, they are coming on well. Check out photos from my garden on Istagram: @_ANA3ANA. Get inspired with these images from an incredible blog I recently discovered called Hedgerow Rose. All of these blooms below are lovingly cultivated by Laurie the blog’s keeper. Head over there to enjoy this virtual paradise of blooms and so many others!

Flower Power Happy Hour!

Last weekend I had the pleasure of being invited by Alison Valentine, singer and flower entrepreneur, to co-host a workshop on how to make a whimsical fresh flower crown at the awesome Freehand Miami during Winter Music Conference ’14. Even though at the last minute Alison couldn’t join me because she is working on her magical EP in sunny Los Angeles, it was such a pleasure and honor for her to send this fun challenge my way! I can’t wait to do it again together! So much love Alison, we can’t wait to hear the new tunes <3.

I had a blast with all the girls that stopped by to make a fresh flower crown.  Special shout out to Amanda at the Freehand for making the day unforgettable. Really good vibes, superb music and that punch,  it was just too perfect! Check out the Freehand Miami on your next trip to Miami or like us locals do, anytime your can.

“When Isabelle was pregnant with our baby I came up with many ideas that I wanted to do once the baby arrived,”says Emil. “It’s just so much fun. There is nothing serious about these pictures and that shows when we take them. The only thing that usually is in my mind when I take them is to get as funny face as possible from the baby.”

Cat Art Show L.A.



Feline lovers rejoice! Shepard Fairey and Tracey Emin will be amongst 77 artist to expose in the upcoming Cat Art Show Los Angeles.

Chuckle. Pause.

From CASLA website:

“CAT ART SHOW LOS ANGELES is a both a meditation and a celebration of the feline form. This exhibition goes beyond heralding felines as domesticated companion, and instead explores their role as muse and inspiration.”


“Many of the artists, like Mercedes Helnwein, Jonathan Gent and FAILE, have never created a cat-themed work of art. Further, a number of the artists involved have readily admitted they are ‘dog’ people, and even allergic to cats, yet they cannot negate the fact that the feline form is a beautiful one that deserves to be heralded artistically.”

“All in all, art featured in Cat Art Show Los Angeles is a contemporary examination of the psychology, inspiration, and physical impact of cats in our lives.”


If any one makes it out to the show please let us know HOW IT WAS!

(All artwork will be for sale, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Stray Cat Alliance of Los Angeles.)

Admission is Free.
Hours of Cat Art Show Los Angeles:
Saturday, January 25th: 7pm – 10pm
Sunday, January 26th: 12pm – 5pm
Saturday, February 1st: 12pm – 5pm
Sunday, February 2nd: 12pm – 5pm
