Let’s celebrate! Today is my day, but it is also my company’s day and the inspiration for Fun and Fabulous Finds. So, let’s be festive! Let’s have some fun! Let’s feel the love for the 4/25!
In honor of the day, here is one way I would spend the next 24 hours if all was in alignment in the universe:
Ah, Rio de Janeiro…one of the more magical cities I have visited. The food, the people and the culture are second to none. I could easily hang out in Rio today and stay at the Ipanema Plaza Hotel for its fabulous location to Ipanema Beach and shopping. You literally walk out of the hotel and cross the street and sit in above photo. http://www.ipanemaplaza.com.br Who wants to join me and lounge on the beach in celebration of 4/25? Sigh…
I would wear this while sunning in Rio today:
Cutest cover up ever! www.trinaturk.com
And this is what I would drink-the Caipirinha! Now listen, you haven’t lived until you have had a Caipirinha made in Brazil. I have never tasted one in the states that compares to a Brazilian Caipirinha. Never. So, because it is my birthday maybe we should have a celebratory drink there together?
Of course, I have to mix in some decor and design because that is the heart of Fun and Fabulous Finds. So, I would bring these timeless treasures back from Rio and put them in my house:
These flat weave rugs and blankets are so finely woven and divinely easy to use (and they are easy to pack!). You can also find the most wonderful hand painted tablecloths and linens. And the art…well that is just fabulous as well.
Did you enjoy my celebratory Fun and Fabulous dream journey? As my Brazilian friends would say Feliz Aniversário! My love and thanks to my supporters and followers. A special shout out to my sponsors! They are Fun and Fabulous companies that you should check out and support. I am grateful to everyone.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy.
What cha knowing?
I’ve come to watch your flowers growing.
Ain’t cha got no rhymes for me?
Feelin’ groovy.Got no deeds to do,
No promises to keep.
I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.
Life, I love you,
All is groovy.
My inspiration for this post is the original Studio 54 nightclub which was hot and happening from 1977-1981. The club was operated by the publicly visible Steve Rubell and his invisible creative partner, Ian Schrager. What does this have to do with a Fun and Fabulous Finds posting? Stay with me…
Rubell became widely known for his door policy, mixing ordinary people with glamorous celebrities and he would “cast a play” when selecting the perfect mix of people to enter the club each night.
So, rockin’ readers… Steve Rubell’s philosophy is exactly what you need to do with your style choices! Select the perfect “mix” of pieces to reflect YOUR fashion and decor statement.
The following little gemstones of Fun and Fabulous Finds are currently inspiring my world. Let’s see if they shimmy and shake yours as well.
Here is what I want to wear this Spring to channel the Studio 54 days:
Here is what I want to sit in while reflecting on the styles of the late 1970’s and early 80’s while wearing the above shorts:
And I would carry this purse (circa 1980’s) with me in above chair while wearing sassy shorts:
And to finish off the look let’s kick it old school:
So, who rocks your house? The answer to this question should be YOU! Let’s keep the countdown to 4/25 rolling….Until next time!
Well, this is a lot of pressure! I mean tick tock tick tock…I need to stop watching the clock…
So, let’s celebrate the count down to 4/25 by featuring some daily Fun and Fabulous Finds that inspire your creativity and make your heart sing. (In the words of David Cassidy…C’mon Get Happy!)
