Yellow Band from Live Strong ( In my categories I have one that is Get and Give, I am really into this category. I believe shopping is a pleasure. And what a bigger pleasure is that when buying a product, a percentage of the money goes to help somebody else or to improve somebody else´s life.) I consider this band a classic with in bracelet fashion that is going now./ Ceramic pig planter from etsy I found this planter completely vintage and why not also a classic./Coconuts photo by Val (me)
As here we are still in the very high of the summer, I mean summer at it´s MOST. I am in a yellow mood.
It is a color that I am completely surround by, as it is a sunny and moon color. Also is the color of the shine of the stars.
I love this color, because of it´s visibility and brightness. What I like the most is the yellow shades that can go all the way to gold.
Some how it is not a color that flows in my house decoration, or the way I dress. But, I find yellow very cheerful and I am glad I am surrounded by it.

Are you familiar with the Spanish language? Our words have genders. They are feminine or masculine and sometimes they carry both genders. Like in the case of the sea. It is correct to say La (she) Mar or El (he) Mar. This is something that intrigues me about my Spanish language, the distinction of genders and even more when a word is allowed two genders.
Lot of time I wonder about words, I love always to check the roots of a word. But now I wonder how did the gender appear in our language.
The sun is a he – El Sol. (The moon is a she.) People from Spain (I’m married to a Spaniard) use the sun as a term of endearment — mi sol - my sun or you are a sun. Used with love the word sun could be used feminine or masculine. How’s that for confusing?
I just came back from a relaxing summer vacation in my hometown Mexico City. How can Mexico City one of the largest cities in the world be relaxing? I barely saw the sun, and was kilometers away from the ocean.But because it was summer it was not as crowd as alway so i got to do some culture stuff and the best part spent a lot of my time with family and friends.
Fall was almost there, well is almost here too,but it doesn’t exactly feel that way in this part of the world as a matter of fact I wouldn’t mind a little bit of fall.
Mr Sun is all day long ,and it gets to be very but very hot (up 40ºc degrees ) which I do complaint all day long, but nevertheless it does not just brightest my day it also brightest my life.
Shopping, I love shopping. I used to subscribe to “why go to the phycologist when we have shops.” Life experience has taught me shopping isn’t the only answer in life, but it sure can help!
Shopping helps economy, right! However, the state of the economy has taught me another lesson – less is more, - and that took me to shop with more sustainability. In other word with Eco-awareness and with compassion and concern for others.
So, here just one click away, I’m sharing one of my recent finds.
