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.

Look at the warmth in these pics x

Again...I'm finding the Taschen coffee table books so stunning and inspiring. I have these two in mind for the next Taschen search and Italy because, well, it's Italy and there's no country I'm obsessed with more (ok Malta hehe but as first runner up) and Audrey Hepburn because watching two of her movies in the past week reminded me of her beauty and of her talent as an actress. I love her quirky, weird style not to mention her figure and how she can pull off such stylish clothes. Timeless as I said.

Audrey Hepburn, a timeless beauty.

Taschen New York

The other day we added another Taschen book to our little collection; Taschen New York.  It’s split in 3 sections of Hotels, Restaurants and Shops. Very useful 😉 It also includes a little handy map with the mentioned places.

How can New York be so fascinating? What makes people go there and come back with their eyes glowing as if they’ve just discovered Jesus. To me it was an overwhelming feeling of Anything can happen here. Good or bad of course but the scale tipping over far more on the positive side. You can meet any kind of person, find any type of food or item and  Brangelina was at a nearby hotel 😉 My favourite reggaeton duo was in a polaroid pic at the store where I bought the (really extremly ugly) Ed Hardy dress (yea what’s wrong with him, making all those loser clothes) coz they were friends with the owner. Of course. In New York things that seemed so far fetched at home suddenly feels real. That’s the very special feeling of New York. I’m telling you my legs turned in to jelly just passing something that looked like a movie being shot or something hehe.

Read it.
