Because when I get overwhelmed, or filled with doubt about ALLL the things I am doing and want to do and will not settle for - I remember the man who built an empire that started with a cartoon mouse. ✨🔥💪🏼 #magicexists#youmustcreateit
Ni todo lo que parece ser es, y mucho de lo que ignoras es y aún no lo sabes, un cambio de perspectiva al ver las cosas "malas" que nos suceden nos puede abrir muchas puertas, en ocasiones eso tan malo que nos pasó fue lo mejor que nos pudo haber pasado para crecer, avanzar, aprender y trascender... Cada final no es el final, es solo un nuevo comienzo ✨✨ #rumi#magicexists#goforit#goodvibes
Ive been looking for this stone for months but all the ones ive come across didnt feel right, yesterday i went to a little hippie town in Australias "green cauldron" an extinct volcano... amazing!
I picked it up in the shop and the woman at the counter said "wow did you see how it sparkled blue when you did that? You must be a water sign!" YES!!! 😄
Now im in love, ❤ it has all my watery pisces colours and little sparkles. #epic#crystalnerd
Look at every single light shining from every single window. Who could’ve been in those rooms? What could they have been doing? What moments were captured in this single photograph? What emotions, dreams, stories were stolen and suspended forever in time?
I would always speak of adventure and of living life wildly and in the moment. But, I have to admit that I never knew what I was talking about until I uprooted everything I knew and leapt into a void of the unknown. I tied my own set of balloons to the roof of my house and uprooted the entire foundation.
I definitely found what I was looking for. That, and a whole lot more. And so I’ll keep tying balloons to the roof of my house.
Because “Adventure is out there” and who says houses can’t fly?
I have a feeling about today guys..... something awesome is going to happen. Let’s look for it ❤️ 10:15 fundamentals

The grass always looks greener on the other side. The truth is, the grass is green where you water it.
I've been getting a lot of strange comments and opinions about my travels from many people who don't necessarily travel that much, especially when I came back to my home country after some time. Comments such as 'i would travel too, if I had money' or questions like 'how do you afford to do it?'. It almost made me feel bad that I even 'dared' to follow my dreams and try because it made me look like I was some kind of spoiled brat who had it all plus a good constalation of stars on my side as a bonus. Here is the thing - what people see on my social medias etc is pretty much the very fucking highlight of that all. And there is nothing wrong with sharing your highlights, but there is this big big truth behind everything, hiden, not being shown or always commented and explained. There is a fucking whole lot of sacrifice and hard work for making that happen. There is leaving your comfort zone almost every single day, there are lot of shitty jobs, long hours, sacrificing your friendships, family, changing your ways, feeling lonely, getting lost, cultural differences, language barriers and so much more.. And usually it's all worth it because every single experience and lesson is part of the journey. At the end of the day, it's about your own priorities and choices. I wouldn't have it any other way. I simply choose this and I take all of it, the good and the bad.
I felt like expressing this somewhere and saying out loud that my life is not a fairytale and it's very far from perfect because for some reason it apears that way to some people. I'm still finding my way, learning, making mistakes but what I know for sure is that playing a victim in our situations is never gonna get us anywhere and that attitude is everything. So my advice to you is - stop listening to that doubting voice in your head, or sometimes even your friends and relatives and GET UP, get going and make that dream of yours come true. Water your own grass and stop comparing it to whoever else because you never know the full story from your point of view.
As this chapter in paradise comes to its conclusion I am left with an overwhelming sense of happiness and fullfilment! I really could not have asked for more.
Forging friendships that transcend space, time and limitation under countless starry nights and sunrises and shaking it on the most epic of dancefloors has left me like: 🤩
Each and everyone of you that became a part of my story and let me into yours just know that it’s all love from now until infinity ✨💙✨ Bless up and keep it real! Catch y’all on the flip 🤙
And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. And those who don’t believe in magic, will never find it. ✨💕😉🧚🏼♀️💙☀️ || @piagrams
#FortunyFriday#funfortunyfacts No 3
Fortuny and Printing. Fortuny occupies a special place in the textile world for many reasons. Some think mostly of the pleated silk delphos gowns, but he and Henriette perfected their own style of printing as well. ⠀⠀
He had taken out two patents on his printing techniques, one in 1909 and one for velvets in 1910. Just like having the patent for the pleated silk gives us no way to recreate his technique- the same goes for these patents. ⠀⠀
We don’t know that much about the actual process. He printed on all sorts of silks from gauze (like in the photo here) to silk velvet (like the jacket in the last Fortuny Friday post). He also printed on cotton and linen. His process- THE process- is still used today by @fortunyvenezia to creat their luxurious materials for home use. The new collection- The Philosopher’s stone introduces printed velvets back into their wares. I haven’t seen it yet, but... swoon. (And just to be clear, I’m not affiliated with the company in any way besides being a HUGE fan of the history but also how the Riad family is dedicated to Fortuny as a brand- and for me more importantly- for the legacy. I have met some of the people in the company and it is beautiful how they love and are passionate about it. Running the company is a labor of love and they have an abundance of love to pour into it). ⠀⠀
Back to the fabric.... so.... after already starting some experimental pieces F&H (Fortuny and Henriette) had officially selling fabrics and garments in 1907. ⠀⠀
“In 1907, some ancient fragments of printed fabrics, found in Greece, set me off on an investigation of printing techniques. My wife and I started a fabric printing shop in Palazzo Orfei using the methods we had developed.” Mariano Fortuny, sourced from “Il Laboratorio Fortuny” Silvio Fuso Sandro Mescola. ⠀⠀
His father loved antiques, had a passion for things from Africa. His mother, sister, and Henriette as well all collected ancient textiles, costumes and ornaments. His designs show a varied and wide range of influences- even from South America. He used natural dyes but would also add powdered metallics for effect.
