What the Iconic Painting, “The Two Fridas,” Actually Tells Us About Frida Kahlo

I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality. —Frida Kahlo You may be forgiven for assuming you already know everything there is to know about Frida Kahlo. The subject of a high profile bio-pic, a bilingual opera, and numerous books for children and adults, her image is nearly as ubiquitous as Marilyn Monroe’s, though Frida exercised a great deal of control over hers by painting dozens of unsmiling self-portraits in which her unplucked unibrow and her traditional Tehuana garb feature...

Frida’s Forge

Frida Kahlo is well known as a trailblazing artist. She was, for example, the first Mexican artist to have a painting displayed in the Louvre. But her passion for painting was discovered almost by accident. Well, literally because of an accident, that nearly killed her. In 1922, a bus she was embarked upon collided with...

My Favorite Reads of 2019

2019 was the year that my reading habits changed in a big way. While I’ve always been a big reader, I went into turbo-drive and broke my record of 72 books in one year! I’m currently at 79 and will probably finish a few more before the year ends. How did I do it? I got a library card and started borrowing books. This was the game-changer of all game-changers. I was a library fiend when I was younger, but I hadn’t borrowed anything in a long time, and never from the New York Public Library....

Fine Dining at the Velas Resorts Around Puerto Vallarta

  I still run into people in my travels that look down at the idea of luxury all-inclusive hotels. Their main perceptions seem to be that they'll be huge and overcrowded and that "the food won't be very good." While both may be true of some of the low-end all-inclusive vacation factories serving the masses, it's not true at the high-end places catering to travelers who can afford to stay anywhere. In the case of the Velas Resorts around Mexico, the restaurants are as good or better than anywhe...

Comment on blackberry-blueberry crumb pie by Frida

I’m looking to make slab pie with this topping as I’ve used it before on a regular pie to delicious effect! Would you recommend doubling the amount for the topping or maybe 1.5x? Thanks!

22 of the Best Things to Do in Mexico City

Mexico City is often described in foreign media as unsafe and dirty. However, we found this unsavory reputation to be completely unwarranted. One of the best things to do in Mexico City is explore the San Angel Neighborhood Just like any major city around the world, there are areas that should be avoided, but you’ll quickly see that there is much more to Mexico City than the rumors will have you believe. CDMX, or Cuidad de Mexico , is full of unbeatable food, charming tree-shaded ...

The Steamiest, Sexiest Movies Of All Time

The sexiest movies aren't necessarily lurking in the adults-only section of HBO — or in the deleted archives of one's browser history. Often, the steamiest films are mainstream. Whether a flick actually features a crazy-hot love scene or a more innocent tryst between a forbidden couple, it's perfectly acceptable to find these movies tantalizing. Let's be real: That was totally the filmmaker's point.As a celebration of the sexiest films to ever grace the big screen, we've rounded up a collectio...

If We Could Wear Only One Label This Spring, It'd Probably Be Staud

With irresistibly retro styling and a knack for unexpected color combinations, Staud never fails to inspire temporal wanderlust, serving a fresh and modern dose of come-hither seen through ever-so-slightly mod-colored glasses. The Spring '19 collection is no exception, with Pop Art-inspired color-blocking and sweet matching sets reminiscent of an era that is bygone but still alluring. And don't worry, Staud is still serving up the structured, street-style friendly bags that the label is well-kn...

Hello

Hi! My name is Frida and I live in Sweden where the total sunshine hours per day are about 4-5 right now (on the days it's not cloudy, the first part of November we had 6 hours of sun in total), which has made me get my first ereader, a Kobo Clara HD, so I can read books in the dark and avoid the mindless scrolling on my phone. I look forward to explore the world of ebooks and also look forward to not have to trip over books everywhere in my flat.

Siordia Parfums: Bakst and Frida

  At the Intercharm 2018 exhibition, there were several new Russian indie-perfumers. They were sharing tables, helping each other, not quarreling. They addressed their  words of disaffection to a Middle Eastern producer of attars and bakhurs, who was located directly opposite from them and constantly burned his fragrant creations in a censer. The heavy smelling smoke spread throughout the exhibi... Read full article: Siordia Parfums: Bakst and Frida from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magaz...

Film Festival examines key Aboriginal issues: Culture and Ecology

The Kimberley is a vast and rugged region – 420,000km2 of unique landforms and species of wildlife, swathes of wilderness defined by rugged ranges, spectacular gorges, savannah, waterfalls, cave systems and a largely isolated coastline. It is among the world’s most ecologically diverse areas and home to the highest percentage of Aboriginal people living on country in Australia – all of which is threatened by the relentless expansion of mining, pastoralism and irrigated agriculture.
