Sweets for Thought

Time for me to relax and eat my favorite Dutch Apple pie while typing my sweet thoughts about the invasion of different print types in the fashion industry.

I don’t know about you ladies, but for my personal taste, I love all the different prints that I now see everywhere.  It is a very modern and youthful trend – definitely unconventional in a good way.

All I see lately all over the store showcases are different prints and all kinds of fabrics, such as silk, linen, cotton and much more.  They resemble abstract expressionism and I think if Pablo Picasso was still alive he would agree with me.  Picasso was and artist of many styles, and abstract art was a part of his amazing talent.  So I think prints as an art expression brings a new flavor to the fashion world.

Remember the introduction of prints back in the 80s?  But this time the trend comes more powerful, and with such a enigmatic and elegant appearance.

For my personal taste, I prefer prints better on bottoms than tops.  

In my opinion, the skinny jeans with a little touch of print, are my favorite :)

I encouraged you to show that feminine silhouette, but keep in mind to add some prints to your a outfit in a delicate way.

Let’s make a mark on the fashion world this Spring and Summer, let’s be the ones who lead in fashion over this wonderful time of the year, with some stunning and inspirational looks.

Stay Fabulous.

The history of the Bikini can be traced back to the Roman Empire, when Roman women wore bikini-like garments for competitive athletic events.

Hundreds of years later, French women re-welcomed the Bikini, provoking controversy within the Church and French society.  The majority of people first thought this two-piece outfit was too risqué and scandalous, but little-by-little over time it became more acceptable around the globe.

Miss World beauty pageant contestants first wore bikinis in 1951, but the person who truly revolutionized the world with this unique outfit was the one and only Bridget Bardot, when she was first photographed wearing a Bikini at the Beach during the Cannes film festival.

Moving to the real subject of this post, I would like to open my heart to all of you gorgeous friends.

As women, we are often accustomed to thinking that bikinis only belong to Size Zero bodies without imperfections, or women who workout like everyday nonstop.

But truthfully, it is really all about how we feel inside with ourselves :)

Many women, like myself, are mothers, and of course with pregnancy our bodies change.

I am very proud to share with all of you my history: I gained over 75 pounds in nine months, and after my pregnancy I was very unhappy with the way I looked.   So I decided to change that immediately with healthy dieting, exercise, and so much work.  But I can tell you, I will never be the same size I was at age 18 or so, but I’m completely happy with who I am now.

No body is perfect, we all have imperfections, and if you don’t, you are one lucky girl!!

But for the majority of us, like it or not, cellulite and stretch marks are our-best friends for life. LOL

… And you know what? It’s no big deal!!

I believe from the bottom of my heart, that every woman has her own beauty, in her own way.

The secret is to accept yourself and be happy for who you are.

So if you think Bikini only belong to Victoria Secret models and Size Zero Chics, I will tell you I disagree a 100%!

It is not about size, it is not about a perfect body, is about being happy in your own skin :)

Remember, you are beautiful because there is only one you :)

 

So, while summer is here, get to the beach or the pool with your bikini and enjoy this precious time of the year.

I always say this: “don’t look for anybody’s approval, only your own.”

Stay fabulous!
