Swarovski, A Diamond for everyone…

I truly love the bright of the Swarovski pieces of art, in Jewelry or in decoration articles for home. The Swarovski lamps are also an stunning addition to anyone home. The light travel and cross the crystal, forming little magical moments, sometimes creating rainbows of colors. They converge happiness and dreams. Here you have a selection of jewelry and also some decorating articles for your home  office space. Wish you like them all as much as me. You can acquire them at Swarovski

Quicken

Quicken

Loneliness clarifies. Here silence stands
Like heat. Here leaves unnoticed thicken,
Hidden weeds flower, neglected waters quicken,
Luminously-peopled air ascends;
And past the poppies bluish neutral distance
Ends the land suddenly beyond a beach
Of shapes and shingle. Here is unfenced existence:
Facing the sun, untalkative, out of reach.”

― Philip Larkin, The Whitsun Weddings

I started working on today post and I wanted to do it about wedding dresses. But suddenly I found like for serendipity and outfit that I love, it was totally the opposite of what I was thinking, nothing to do with wedding and black tie, then I quickened the previous idea and decided to deliver today some every day outfits, outfits that you can use in diverse occasions and more than one time. Wish you enjoy them all as much as me.

A Good Match

A Good Match

“Life, it turns out, goes on. There is no cosmic rule that grants you immunity from the details just because you have come face-to-face with a catastrophe. The garbage can still overflow, the bills arrive in the mail, telemarketers, interrupt dinner.” ― Jodi Picoult, Perfect Match

Some weeks ago I went with my husband to Applebee’s, I ordered “Butcher’s Meat & Potatoes” I tasted delicious, just what I needed on that very cold day. I was warm and I the size was just exactly what I need. I do not remember now what my husband ordered, but he was not happy with his order. He liked it more mine. Then, recently I surprised him, cooking for him my own version of the Applebee’s menu the both enjoyed. I made the mash potatoes using Idaho’s  potatoes, a little milk and butter. On top I put the sirloin with the gravy and fry onions made by myself too. As a side I added asparagus and carrots and we also have a cup of red wine. I was an amazing night. He was very pleased with the results and felt complete making him so happy.  All was a good match for making both happy.

The Unexpected Day

Criticize

“Our critics make us strong!
Our fears make us bold!
Our haters make us wise!
Our foes make us active!
Our obstacles make us passionate!
Our losses make us wealthy!
Our disappointments make us appointed!
Our unseen treasures give us a
known peace!

Whatever is designed against us will work for us!”
― Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

For me human relations are a primordial part of life. Family and friends are an essential part of my every day thoughts.  Then for a very long time I have been reconnecting with old friends around the world, friends that I have not seen in more than a decade sometimes. Recently I found a friend that was also a coworker, she is living in Venezuela, I was super happy to see her pictures and I made very sweet and nice comments for her. Unfortunately some people are very sincere and cannot control themselves. Her first words for me made me feel so bad, she told me: Daisy you are so fat, I almost did not recognize you. Maybe she did not want to hurt me, to criticize me, but the impact was very negative on me. I have been taking a medication that make me gain weight. I am doing diet and exercises, but I have not been able to lose the extra weight. She broke my heart, I always focus my attention in people, in how they are, in what matter. I have never measured others for their physical appearances, I am very selective in my comments and what I tell others. I do not like to make others feel bad. I believe we should only criticize others if it is to do some good, never ever to put a person down. Well, the moment just happened and it is part of the past. I want to be able to forget it forever. I do not carry any hard feeling toward her. We cannot get offended with the truth, even so it could be hard to accept.

Now I will make you another sad story about a person criticizing me. When I moved from Miami to Ohio, I moved without idea how to live in a cold weather, even less I was aware of the culture of the area in which  I was settling. One day I went to the bank wearing a pair of jean, a black tank top and also black flip flops, the person who helped me there, told me that I should not wear those kind of clothes, that it was not appropriated to wear tank top. I know that it was an advice and also maybe without bad intention, but her critics made me feel very uncomfortable. I was not even overweight at that time.

Well dear readers, here you have a very simple outfit similar to the one I used that day. I wish you can give well use and like it.

Blue Nile

The jewel, which is so well adapted to a woman’s adornment, is a combination of the riches of nature and art; it is concentrated brilliancy, the quintessence of light…. In the bowels of the earth, in the deserted channels of exhausted torrents, in the gloomy depths of the mineral world, stars are concealed that rival in their beauty those of the firmament. The fresh spendours of dawn, the sun’s incandescent rays, the magnificent sunsets, the brilliant colours of the rainbow, all are found enclosed in a morsel of pure carbon or in the centre of a stone…. uniting as though urged by the secret instinct of the beautiful, to compose prismatic forms of astonishing regularity… ~Charles Blanc, Art in Ornament and Dress, 1875

I like jewelry but I am not fan of using big stones and big accessories, for me when I will use jewelry to complement my outfit less is more.

Time ago I watched a movie that I cannot remember now the tittle, the main character had a necklace with a tiny diamond star flower pendant. It was made of white gold  or platinum and with a very simple design. Since I loved that necklace I started looking for it on different stores, Tiffany has the necklace I was looking for made of platinum for $4900, what is very expensive for me. I continue looking all over the web for better option and I found that Bluenile.com has a similar necklace made of white gold $360. It does have the name Tiffany on it, probably the worst diamond quality, but for me is more than enough. Here I am sharing with you some others accessories from Bluenile.com that I like. I wish you can enjoy them. You can see the pretty flower necklace on the top to the left.
