Taschen Living in Mexico

This could very likely be the third or so time I post about Taschen books, especially during winter. Europe is drowning in snow and the cold knows no limits, except Malta, yes it’s true we don’t experience the same weather but to me it’s 28+ and sunny or it’s winter. There’s no in-between. Right now Malta is around 15-20. So…winter.

I tend to grab one of our Taschen books around this time of year, mostly the Mexican one, or the Mediterranean one (featuring summer shots). Coffee table books are a great way of keeping beauty near, especially when you don’t have the option to frame or nail everything to the wall.

The Beauty Book – A must buy

Must Read: The Beauty Book

Jessica Alba is so incredibly stunning in this photo….it hurts my eyes :)

Ok, seriously, the photo is taken for a new coffee table book by Darren Tieste and apart from Jessica you will also find portraits of celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson, Miranda Kerr, Leighton Meester, Kate Bosworth and Zoe Saldana.

The Beauty Book is a 312-page hardcover collectible book that features page after page of celebrity portraits—with over 120 actors, musicians and models taking part.

The book is $39.99 and apart from having a beautiful book (maybe as a gift?) the best thing about this is that all of the proceeds are being donated to help fund brain cancer research.

I lost a very very dear and special person to this horrible illness and it makes me sad just hearing the words so it really feels like this is for a very important cause….it’s devastating when you feel powerless when there might be something we can find out more about and help others in the future. So, to me this was happy news. I hope lots of people will buy it and at least raise some more awareness.
