Menu White House Correspondent Association dinner 2013

The White House Correspondent Association dinner on Saturday night (Washington Hilton, Executive Chef Andre Coté) menu:

Was it really halibut and filet mignon, or maybe lasagna and couscous, as some said, served over the white tableware and the beige and white cloth on tables.

Just thinking over the table, can you reveal the menu, please Chef :)

The Fight for Pure Water (Part 2)

Poor or rich, old or young, in rich or poor countries, people carry water back and forth, from where to, for what purpose?

Are we looking at our own future in the eyes? Are we running out of pure water, are we running out of drinking water? Well, if we are not now, future generations will. As corporations may teach of the rationalization of pure water by lending us all a 1.5 liter bottle at a time and we surely believe we drink in style.

We don’t need this status symbol. We all know pure water is healthy but as you carry your cellphone out of home, why to carry also a bottle of water, as you will never find drinking water outside?

We have seen the wise change of water from being a natural resource to a marketing commodity by powerful brands. By way of privatizing natural springs and wells.

So very well-known corporations that distribute other drinks,  control also the bottled water market. Pepsico and Coca-Cola, the first with Aquafina and the second with Dasani. Evian is French Danone Waters a company which also has a variety of other products on the market. And of course Nestle with Perrier, San Pelegrino, Pure Life and Poland Spring.

These multinational corporations reach natural water springs, build their own infrastructure to extract and exploit them and slowly deplete natural resources that belong to us all. Countries lend a hand by not investing in infrastructure, pipes and tap water for their citizens, and bringing by the easiest way a corporation that will sell the precious water like a luxury product to the people at high prices.

Countries in need of pure water right now, do not need these 1.5 liter bottles of water, not even small sachets of 500 ml.  of water at a time, at high prices.

What they need is help to invest in water infrastructure and the free reach of water resources, provided by their governments, municipalities, world aid groups and powerful institutions.

Drink potable, tap water (it’s not that bad) :) or use purifiers attached and clean them as needed.

Sorbet and Pastel colors wear them

Summer 2012 is almost gone, but we have still this riddle to solve: Those Sorbet and Pastel colors, did  they came here to stay over for fall and winter too?

Preen S/S 2012

Sorbet colors have beautiful names, like petal pinks, soft violets, mild mint, tulip yellow, light lavender, baby blue, peach, watermelon, coral, and turquese. Wear these colors with lace, soft silks.

Phillip Lim S/S 2012

We are going to see accessories and even interior design use them profusely.

The sorbet color palette is lighter than the pastel color palette.

Remember that actually a sorbet is made out of water and fruit, mixed into an ice cream used as refreshment between courses . And I’m not talking about “Neon” colors because they are another different story that can be a whole theme for a future post.

:) Combine these colors freely, because they perfectly match all together. For fall and even winter, pair sorbet and pastel colors with black and grey, layered will look great.

Polka Dots-Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama

The LVMH group, house of luxury brands we all are familiar with, embrace Yayoi Kusama, the dot artist.

Luis Vuitton opens an inspired dot season by Yayoi Kusama.

Well, even Minnie Mouse will be happy wearing this :) (This is my honest opinion)

Visit also the Yayoi Kusama exhibition at the Whitney Museum
