We’re obviously all at the mercy of forces we only dimly perceive and events over which we have no control, but it’s still unsettling to discover that there are people out there—human beings of whose existence you are totally oblivious—who have effectively toyed with your life.( politicians around the world)

This just occured to me the other day: The fact that woman is the predominant character of Italian life, even if not the most conspicuous, can be read in many small signs.
Almost as many popular songs are dedicated every year to La Mamma as to voluptuous hussies or romantic beauties. "Mamma mia" is the most common explanation. What other people call for their mother in time of stress or danger?

O que 'e o bem e o mal?
What is good or what is bad?
Black hat or white hat ?
Sera que em toda pose de santa... tem uma santa?
Is it possible that in each saintly pose..there is a Saint?
Sera que em toda cara de ma tem uma ma?
Is it that in each face of bad person there is a bad person?
Na verdade, todo mundo tem um black and white hat dentro de si.
The truth ,all the whole world has a black and white hat inside of them.
 Nao existe o todo certo nem o todo errado.
It does not exist that all is correct or all is wrong!!!

"Never ever, ever, EVER, confuse being against, with being for; as the former is destructive and the latter constructive!" -

What makes someone "Inoubliable" (Unforgettable)?
JG: That, in my opinion, is in the eye of the beholder. People choose for themselves why a person is memorable for them. True longevity to me can't be forced.

En el arranque de la temporada, Don Draper lee un fragmento del Infierno de Dante: "En mitad del viaje de mi vida, me descarrié del camino correcto, y caminé hasta encontarme solo en un bosqu

At the start of the season, Don Draper reads a passage from Dante's Inferno: "Midway through the journey of my life, I went astray from the right path, and walked to find myself alone in a Maple Forest

Riccardo Tisci, the 38-year-old designer reinvented Givenchy, turned around its fortunes and conquered both the runways of Paris and the streets of USA.  Tisci's clothes are sexy and classy the way an iPad is sexy and classy but they are also sexy in the way that sexy is sexy.

Vanity Fair Francia: bienvenue!

L'arrivée de "Vanity Fair" en France inquiète la presse magazine

What is signature style? Is it something we grow in to… or is it a look that has always been ours?
Style and signature style aren’t one and the same, in my mind at least… Style encompasses every facet of our lives and can manifest itself in both tangible and intangible expressions… Signature style, the concept I am thinking about…. is the way we appear, the way we dress ourselves… our presentation to the rest of the world…

Jobs Official Trailer #1 (2013) - Ashton Kutcher Movie HD

It's amazing what people will do for the love of a brand these days. The latest example comes from one of the world's top models of the moment, Bar Refaeli. Bar shared a picture over the weekend and it's all down to a Christian Louboutin bag. That's just it, though. It's just Bar and her Louboutin shopping bag, no clothes and no sign of makeup, just a natural beauty in the nude and a sign of her love affair with a famed designer.

and while on the subject of models...KC will remember that I introduced her literally to Christie Brinkley....KC and I discussed how she managed to look young(of course with money and plastic surgery) you can defy time to a certain extent.....so here is Christie Brinkley for those who do not recognise the name....

In the early 80's, Billy Joel released a video called "Uptown Girl." Christie Brinkley was the star, the woman that prompted a whole generation of men to loose their jaws to the floor. She was one of the "supers" that would define a generation of supermodels. Today, thirty years later, Brinkley is nearly 60 years old. Three decades may have passed, but somehow Brinkley hasn't aged a single day. In fact, some may argue that Christie Brinkley is only just entering her prime, if her recent cover of Haute Living is anything to go by.


y Sara Carbonero es muy parecida a mi amiga Israeli, Tal Yagur....Tal es mas linda (sonrisas).....

a little take on Japan

the body language of Japanese people is somewhat unique, from indicating "me?" by pointing at the nose instead of the chest, or making that ubiquitous "peace" sign (though that's become quite accepted all around Asia by now). Another way to tell Japanese people from other Asians is to listen to their speech. Japanese is (thankfully) not a tonal language language at all, unlike Mandarin or Cantonese (which have 4-9 different ways to pitch a given syllable). If the speech sounds "flat" to your ear then it might be Japanese.

and Viva Mayr Clinic has never gone out of style it is just being rediscovered...

 Dr. Fredric Brandt
No matter your age, you can prevent more skin damage by wearing at least an SPF 30 sunscreen daily. Dr. Fredric Brandt, dermatologist to the stars, suggests using a "two-finger scoop" of sunscreen to the face and neck (never forget your neck when it comes to an anti-aging regimen). Get into the habit of wearing sunscreen every day, no matter the weather. Your skin will thank you down the road. You're dermatologist too.

Sculpt the face 
Skilled injectors, like Dermatologist Dr. Brandt (the largest user of Botox in the US) use Botox to sculpt the face, turning up the nose, lifting the eyebrows to enlarge the eyes, and adding the illusion of volume in strategic areas.

Always so clean and elegant. She keeps her head and arms covered, of course, as required by Muslim law, but does it with such PANACHE. Here she is with Germany's First Lady Bettina Wulff – no slouch in the style.

   Very nice.....Stella McCartney for Adidas

i have a few acquaintances that are always looking for rich guys.....so my thinking is this
i’m not saying they're gold diggers but they believe that in a male-dominated society where women generally are paid less it’s important to find a man that can be relied on financially if necessary
in case you  missed  the point of the joke is that you shouldn’t degrade girls for only wanting to consider financially stable people as long-term partners because the economy is in ruins
 at the end of the day, are this type of girls happy??....no, but to each its own.

Not only has the phrase 'to Google' become a generic English term for searching on the Internet,it has crossed over into Hebrew too. That's the specific case. More generally it means, "to search on the Internet," simply because Google has become quite the default search engine in Israel. The person telling you "legagel" something or other isn't necessarily commanding, "Thou shalt search using Google and not using any other search engine."
