Breakfast at Tiffany’s Not-So-Happy Story

Ever since I watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s one month ago I can't forget this fashion show for Givenchy, who designed Audrey Hepburn's costumes.  He was the first high fashion designer to break into film. I understand why this movie appeals to so many generations of girls. Myself, I preferred to watch Roman Holiday, a fantasy story of a princess who escapes from her life for a day - escape from responsibility and societal expectations. Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s is more down to earth, a wanna-be socialite who is trying to move ahead in life. While escaping from her past, ignoring lack of founds, she aspires to becoming one of the fabulous New York ladies. In fact, Holly is a high class escort, if not a call girl. I understand her aspirations, but I'm far from understanding the way that she chose to fulfil them.  The fact is the fabulous Audrey Hepburn represents the ideal of young women -  beautiful, feminine, and fun loving.

Home on Wheels - Best Caravan Interior Design

Many times on this blog I emphasized how much I love to travel. And I really do! Since I've moved to Argentina, road tripsbecame my favourites. Car travelling gives us the flexibility of deciding our own route and travel times. We can also stop off wherever we want and it gives us the opportunity to see and experience more. In our times, we loose so much of the magic of travelling, that otherwise we would have experienced if we hadn’t travelled by plane.

I've never been a great fan of caravan holidays until recently, when I came across with this wonderful caravan manufactured by Caravanolic, a Spanish architectural studio. I was smitten with it's original interior design, functional and modern yet personal and cheerful. I dare to say it looks like taking your home for a ride! I love it!
