Happy 91st Birthday to our angelical grannie Ate, (my dad’s mother).  
Today I dedicate a very special post in honor of my grandmother, Margarita ‘Ate / Margo’ Mercelina - Adriana – 91 years young today! 

Our grannie is our rock, inspiration and role model. She is a remarkable woman of strength, patience, love and courage. She is brilliant, vibrant, full of heart and truly a treasure in our lives.

The amazing thing is, she was raised as an orphan with her nieces, after her mom died leaving her at very young age and coming from a Jewish father whom already had his own family - she sticked devoted and developed a big family with values and loving hearts. A loving mother, a sweet grandmother and she became an adopted mom/grannie for all who came across her path. I always thought that if she didn’t get married she would have been a nun. 

Ate has always been an active person and has the heart and mind of someone 20 years younger. When people meet her they can’t believe she’s 91 years old.

If I could give you a gift Ate, I would give you the ability to see yourself as others see you, then you could really see how very special you are.

Your courage in the face of adversity, and your inner strength is truly a blessing. I hope that if the infinite blesses my path with 91 years of journey, I’m half as vital, dynamic, healthy, and loving as you are! I wish you many more years of health and happiness.

Happy Birthday from your grandson wènchi! 
We love you!

Everything depends on the way you look at things. 
View every problem you encounter as an #opportunity. 
There is always a good side to every situation. 

The #optimist sees an opportunity in every misfortune. 
The #pessimist sees misfortune in every opportunity. 
The optimist sees the doughnut, the pessimist sees the hole. 

You can develop #success from every failure. 
Discouragement and failure are two stepping stones to success. 
No other elements can do so much for you 
if you’re willing to study them and make them work for you. 

When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.

#CURAÇAO ANNO 2014
———————————————————————-
Today, I have started this special day at the unique leadership event of the #JohnMaxwell Leadershipcast: #LearnLead. 

It equipped, motivated,  inspired us to lead a more authentic life, urging us to dig deep within ourselves and become a difference maker in all we do. 

It’s no coincidence, but it imprinted in me the price I’m willing to pay to change my personal circumstances but also my national circumstances to succeed. 
To accept obstacles in our lives to conquer the ordinary transforming them into the extraordinary. 

Being optimistic in every area of our life and nation, because it approaches the world with gratitude and hope rather than fear and regret. 

What we lost in time will never be found again, but with perseverance and pluck we shall define a sustainable reality that gives hope. 
 
Our desire to change, understand and serve will form the love we need to passionately drive us in the greatness we shall achieve.  #weleadcuracao

Be grateful, when you change your perception of the way you absorb challenges in life - everything else expands and changes as well. #thankful

Visiting the Vibrant, Colorful Cityscape Of Willemstad, Curaçao

For more vivid landscapes and architecture from the island of Curaçao, explore the Willemstad location page.

One of the first things visitors notice about Willemstad, the capitol of Curaçao, is its brightly colored houses. The Dutch-influenced architecture reflects the colonial history of the tiny island nation, located in the Caribbean Sea off the coast of Venezuela.

“The landscape and the people who live in this city are as diverse as they come,” says Gaby Lieuw (@sandandstilettos), who grew up in Curaçao and currently runs a travel service for tourists to the island. “Many people speak at least four languages fluently—Dutch, English, Spanish and the local language of Papiamento—and switch between them effortlessly throughout the day.”

According to Gaby, large music festivals are a defining feature of Willemstad, ranging from traditional tumba music to Bruno Mars. But one of the most memorable events that takes over the city center is Curaçao Pride, a celebration of LGBT community which runs from September 24 to 28. Visitors flock to Willemstad from all over the world to participate.

“Pride events on the island are getting bigger and better every year,” says Gaby. “Curaçaoans always know how to throw a good party.”

Dolce Gabbana - 2015 Collection

MILAN, ITALY – Scenes from the Milan Fashion Week of the fierceness seen by the two creative designers Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana to celebrate the beauty of women with charisma, character and talent.

Dolce & Gabbana is an Italian luxury fashion brand that is distinguished by its stylistic originality combined with the superior sartorial content of its creations. The strong identity of the Dolce & Gabbana brand has evolved over the years while always remaining faithful to its inherent standards. An unmistakable style, the expression of unconventional luxury which, season after season, combines strong innovation with the powerful Mediterranean flavour of its origins. A brand whose essence lies in its contrasting features.

The Dolce&Gabbana Women Summer 2015 collection leaded by stellar Kendal Jenner in Milan, is inspired by the heritage of the Spanish culture on Sicily’s history.

The Sacred Heart is the main symbol of the collection and it is found embroidered or printed on most of the pieces.

The choice of the carnation was made not only because it is a flower that recalls the Spanish tradition, but also as an homage to Mr. Dolce’s mum, as it was her favorite flower.

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have been milking their native Sicily for inspiration to their glorious fantasies

Mr. Dolce and Mr. Gabbana’s challenge was to convey the Spanish influence in a non-conventional and literal way. They achieved this thru the use of very simple shapes matched with very rich details and embroideries. The result is a collection full of joy, love and sexiness.
