 Mixed Media Oil + Collage


What do see as when you look at a painting? Pictures evoke memories, emotions and take us to a place that is all our very own. The work of Paula Rubinstein is no different with her bold, vibrant strokes that would brighten any day. Her paintings are like beams of sunshine and each reminds me of a happy place and time. I love to wake up to one of her pieces hanging in my breakfast nook, where the first ray of sunlight appears. I adore her Matisse-like approach to her compositions that are both whimsical and dreamy.

"Three Chairs"


For Rubinstein it's all about the color, the brushstrokes and texture.  Coming from a colorful life myself in more ways than one, I can relate to the bright tones of oranges, blues, reds and her whites. The Caribbean where I am from has the same vibrant life in it's culture, scenery and people and, so I am drawn automatically to her warm canvases. The below painting is entitled 
" Yellow Vase on Blue Table". Now how cool is that?

Your Time (Happy Friday).

Hello my Lovelies. I trust you all a great week and looking forward to the weekend. I know I am, as I have lovely dinner plans with a trip to the beach as well as , to catch some much needed sunshine. Don't get me wrong there is great weather all around me here in the tropics, but when you are working in a cold air conditioning office, you don't see much of the sun or warm weather.

I adore simple weekend dresses like the one I've posted, that's breezy and light or shorts with filp flops and a huge beach bag where I just throw my stuff in. The weekend is also not complete without a broad rim hat, the broader the better.

Well Cheers to the wekend and be safe my Lovelies, till we meet again.


Love Lisa

holiday outfit inspiration

Hello everyone, are some you still trying to find that Thanksgiving outfit. here are some of my holiday picks for the season. I adore the Sigrid Blouse from Anthropologie that just screams holiday season, it's flattering in any size, when paired with Black leggings or skinny jeans. I am also a big fan of draping and the Sirpo pullover in red is indeed one of my favs for  all holiday parties.


Also from Anthropologie is this gorgeous Berlin midi skirt and printed Jacqui dress is divine. So I hope this post might give you a few more ideas as Thanksgiving draws near. Cheers to the Hols my lovelies.
