Son nom résonne comme un cri de ralliement.
Ça fonctionne très bien sur celui que les fans chantent avant une partie de hockey d’ailleurs.
Hier soir, le Centre Bell était plein à craquer. 90% de femmes. De tous âges et de toutes les couleurs.
J’ai mal au cou d’avoir regardé les écrans et suis encore abasourdie par les cris. Mais quelle énergie et belle attitude! La foule était en délire. Très touchante aussi. Je la suis bien évidemment et suis abonnée à OWN. Un modèle de réussite à tous points de vue.
Elle a parlé de sa vie, a cité beaucoup d’auteurs et quelques passages de la Bible, son premier livre d’histoires.
Elle représente tout ce que la réussite devrait comporter. Une part de fierté, une part de générosité et une somme de travail énorme. Rien ne lui a été donné que ce « feu de Dieu » qu’elle transmet si bien.
« Make the best of yourself », elle a ça inscrit en lettres de feu quelque part et c’est ce qu’elle veut transmettre.
C’est une « preacher » remarquable. Un conteur-né. Elle puise ses histoires dans sa propre vie, comme si celle-ci devait servir de trame à un conte de fées pour âmes en détresse. Une phare dans la nuit. Comme l’étoile du berger.
Un jour, j’ai écrit à son sujet qu’elle était AMERICA’S DREAMCATCHER.
Je confirme que c’est vrai.
Situ Studio a réalisé sur Times Square cette installation artistique appelée Heartwalk. Cette sculpture est composé d’éléments récupérés suite au passage de l’ouragan Sandy et représente avec beauté un coeur dans lequel les plus romantiques peuvent s’installer quelques instants.
It’s in Times Square and it done with debris from Sandy’s passage. What a great, great idea. Enjoy!
What a lovely way to say « I love you, do you want to marry me? »
I recently saw a photo of Anna Wintour, the Queen of Fashionistas, and by golly, it was very – very – how to say it … plain Jane. Yes. Brown hair, bad teeth, very so-so indeed.
Then, she mooves to NY, becomes rich and famous with VOGUE USA and becomes an icon. A personna. Always dressed up to her best, custom hairstyle that became her signature, and well, a certain glow.
Of course, she always wears shades. Rumors has it that her eyesight is not good, and going worst. Family problem. Well, If here is one of us out there knowing what Fashion is all about, one of us maniacs always looking for the-now-and-the-next Fashion must-have and it-bag, it’s her! No competion! So, she sees well…
Salute to you Queen Anna! Keep us on our toes! I read your agenda and lifestyle, and it’s quite something: up at 5:45 – not 6am – 5:45. Then tennis, then hair&makeup, then office by 8am. All this with hired help, of course… Protein eater, she avoids carbs and wine and desserts.
Did you know dear Anna that DESSERTS is STRESSED spelled backward?
No, Anna doesn’t wear Prada. The Devil does…
Guinness. Like the beer. Irish heiress and beatiful. Gifted. Talented. Socialite. Extremely polished and well-brought up in a noble family with big history. Hello Downton Abbey…
She now lives between NY and London, and Paris and wherever style and fashion sits. She is the second love of Bernard-Henri Levy, a brilliant French philosopher, author of many books and a social focus.
She has the most astonishing wardrobe ever. When she was young, she probably liked to change her dolls many times a day. Now, she does it live on herself. The result is stunning.
Mechanical engineer Norman E. Timbs created this dramatic streamliner in the 1940s which in many ways was the ultimate American hot rod. He designed and fabricated much of the project himself which included a custom aluminum body and steel chassis. It took him over two years to finish and the resulting chic roadster was good enough for cover of Motor Trend as well as features in Mechanix Illustrated, Popular Mechanics and Motor Life.
Leading up to this design, Mr. Timbs had worked as an Indy 500 designer on cars such as the Blue Crown Specials which won Indy several times. Mr. Timbs was no doubt influenced by the 1937 Auto Union Typ C Stromlinie and 1937 Mercedes-Benz W25 Avus Stromlinie which ran the 1937 Avus GP. His sensational shape was a very close approximation to these cars which ran the fastest GP race of all time nearing speeds of 248.40 mph (400 kph).
The body was nod to the German GP cars which at the time mimicked aeronautical practice. Norm’s design was free of the over indulgences such as huge chrome bumpers and large tail fins that eventually dominated American design. The streamliner’s chic elegance was a rarity in America, even if was outdated by post-war standards.
Today, the cars’s smooth shape is still as pleasing to the eye as it was in 1948. The boy is is long and low with a complete underbelly panel. With the engine occupying the rear of the chassis, the cockpit is pushed forward much like the Auto Union Typ D. In keeping with the aerofoil shape, no doors are cut out of the body. A large one-piece rear panel opens hydraulically to reveal the entire rear end of the chassis.
The car was based around a 1947 Buick “Super 8” engine which powered the 2200 lb car to 120 mph. The main chassis was built up from five-inch steel tubes which kicked up over the rear axle. To offer a smooth ride, a modified 1947 Ford suspension was utilized.
Road & Track reported that it took Mr Timbs 2 1/2 years to create the car at a cost of $10,000 USD. The body was created entirely in aluminum by Emil Diedt for $8,000 alone. The shape was formed by hand over a traditional wooden buck.
At first the Streamliner was only used on the show circuit until Jim Davis of California bought it in 1952. He used it in and around Manhattan Beach, California and let Motor Life photograph it for a feature article.
The car was discovered in the desert pretty much intact in 2002. It was bought at auction and restored by Dave Crouse at Custom Auto, Inc. in Loveland, Colorado for owners Gary & Diane Cerveny of Malibu, California. After its “complete and exacting” restoration, it debuted at the 2010 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in a class reserved for Motor Trend Cover Cars.

It fooled me. I thought it was GUCCI at first sight. It’s totally British! And I just could not resist when I discovered the collection through ZsaZsa Bellagio (where else?)
A few of my favorite pics.

Her name is one of a star and that’s exactly what she is.
Her blog is stunning. She must be doing that full-time, when not being also a talented painter/illustrator! Aka: an Artist.
I don’t know her personnaly, but it’s easy to know someone by looking at what they like, what they post. And I totally love what she puts online, be it her blog or her Pinterest page.
Here are a few of her favorite things. She has thousands of it, and so many followers to enjoy what she does. As I tremendously do.
The legend under the photo says it’s her sending a kiss… Totally matches her extremely good taste.
And two of her recent paintings.
