I've been secretly obsessed with Elvis Presley and his life! 🤓

August is the month when people around the world celebrate him as he was the king of

rock 'n roll and a global icon.  He fell in love with Priscilla when she was only 14 and married

her several years later.  While he was at his peak, she decided to walk out of the relationship

leaving him heartbroken.  He increased his drug intake to fight depression which slowly

started to take a toll on his health and stardom.  He was never able to fully recover

and finally died at the age of 42 in 1977 in Memphis, TN.

I recently stumbled upon a thought-provoking, controversial documentary on

Netflix called What The Health!  Did you know that eggs are just as bad as smoking,

humans are designed for plant-based diets, protein originates in plants not animals,

and cow's milk is meant for calves, not humans?  Plant-based diets can reverse all

diseases!  Please check out the documentary and see what you think about it!

This is a great example of balancing high and low saturation of two different colors

to make the space look aesthetically appealing.

It takes years for some people to understand and find their purpose on this earth.  This

thought provoking quote is a great way to find the right path in life.  We can make a difference

for ourselves and others in the future by correcting our past and give meaning to our existence.

Attending a beautiful wedding on the well preserved Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA.  

Known as the greatest ocean liner, it was built in Scotland and sailed from 1936 until 1967 across

the Atlantic Ocean carrying British Royalty and Hollywood celebrities, such as, Audrey Hepburn

and Elizabeth Taylor.  Its Art Deco interior design uses 50 different kinds of woods from

around the world representing elegance, glamour, and function.

Design is all about balance, scale, and harmony.  This cozy nook of a living room designed by

Curtis Elmy is a great example of balancing neutrals and making it aesthetically pleasing

to the eye.  If you need design assistance or just a few hours of consultation, please

My favorite annual design event in Los Angeles was a hit!  

I got to meet and learn from the highly influential, such as, Nate Berkus

and also made some new, amazing friends from around the world!

Please check out Nate Berkus' new desktop collection at Target.





 

Being spiritual rather than religious, I personally don't find the need to follow

any traditions of a religion to connect with God.  I can find God in the giant waves

of the ocean, the wet rain drops against my skin, the strangers I meet while traveling, the

tall trees that grow from tiny seeds, the process of child birth, the unbeatable talent 

of an actor, the desire to change lives one human at a time....


How do you connect with God?  What does religion mean to you?  

  




 

Remembering my trip to the beautiful city of Manchester, UK during the tragic incident

that recently occurred at a concert there.  It's true.. "Most of the trouble in the world is

caused by people wanting to be important." -Eliot.  I think that the horrific acts by the

mentally unstable take place when they find themselves lost in life and would lean on anything

that fills their emptiness.  This is why the uneducated who's ultimate goal is to gain power targets the

vulnerable by brainwashing them with an emotional tool, the religion, which they misinterpret and use only for

manipulation purposes.  This scenario can be applied at a smaller scale as well.  For instance, when a child is

lonely, he or she grows up craving attention from peers and is lead to the wrong path; when an insecure

mother uses her title of being a mother to manipulate her son to keep him from living his life out of fear 

of being abandoned; or when a sales person manipulates clients to sell just to meet his or her

monetary needs in order to spend on things that can be used to impress others.  The best way to

eliminate this issue is to educate ourselves to be emotionally strong and keeping ourselves

busy with the positive things in life that better our mind, body, soul,

career, relationship with self and others, etc.
