This past July, I spent 2 weeks in Lima. It was such a good trip! I got to see my friends, spend time with the family... sometimes when you don't plan that much, you end having a very good time :) 

Since I moved to DC, every time I go back home I see it with different eyes. In so many ways, the people, the places, the decor! Peru has done a fabulous job rescuing our heritage and making everyone fall in love with it. Starting with Peruvians. We have re-discovered our origins, our art, our food! And we are so proud of it. I'm so proud of it <3

The attention to detail in which we present a delicate dessert or the way in which colors are mixed in an andean textile. Everything seems to be different to me. More planned, more beautiful. Maybe because I live abroad now. Or maybe because the variety and the quality is actually amazing but I can tell you Peruvian art is getting better and better. 

That's why I wanted to share these images with you. As a small sample of the beautiful pieces I found - that you might have seen already in my house if you follow me on Instagram ;) and the images that inspired me during this trip.

It's always good to be back #Peru 

SURROUND YOURSELF WITH BEAUTIFUL ENERGY

I believe in energy.

I believe that everything that surrounds us has a meaningful impact in our lives. That we are all connected. You've heard me say it many times! Surround yourself with things you love. Hang out with people who inspire you. Search for those little things that make you happy and bring them to your daily life.

Today is my birthday. And it's also the beginning of Spring - the vernal equinox - the big start for everything that wants to grow, change, evolve, and blossom. I like to see it this way. I've always felt connected to the universe through the energy people and nature bring with them.

And above it all, I believe that good energy can and should be expanded - taken and returned.

A couple of months ago I met a new friend who understood how the universe constantly plays a role in our lives, and decided to create a fantastic calendar based on that - the universe's energy. We got together for coffee and connected right away because we both agreed on the existence and impact of life force. And i told him i knew this was a special year. Now I know for a fact that today marks a big change in my life. I'm going full time with my design studio. I'm changing careers and pursuing my big passion for interiors! 

And today I wanted to share it with you, because all your beautiful energy has reached me and pushed me to change. And I wanted to THANK YOU! For your constant support, for demanding more, for being part of this change. Because even when change seems to be impossible or happening at the wrong time, life gives you what you need when you need it. Believe that.

This is a new beginning!

And I'm so glad you are part of it. Thanks so much for reading. xx.

Today is also the Persian New Year. This is our haft seen 2016 - Happy Nowruz! Happy New Year! :)

I hustle. I design. I write. I draw. I follow my passion and do the best I can. And you receive it with love and give me so much support in return. Today, once more, I want to say THANK YOU!

Thanks for your trust.

This is my dream.

And it wouldn't be possible without your support.

Happy Thanksgiving, love. xx.
