"Soy la mujer que piensa. Algún día mis ojos encenderán luciérnagas."

Gioconda Belli, renowned Nicaraguan poet and novelist.

I am the woman who thinks. One day my eyes will blaze fireflies.

Tassel Necklace & Earrings | Henry Happened

It took me a long time to find a tassel tutorial that I actually found easy to follow and that turned out some good looking tassels. But then I found this fantastic tutorial on Henry Happened and I’ve been churning them out! Tassels can be fun and flirty in neon colours or bright colours or elegant and pretty in pastels and metallics. They’re so easy to add to earring hooks or necklaces like in HH’s tutorial, or to add to your keyring or bag.

Faux Geode Necklace | Fall For DIY
There are some things I just can’t go past when it comes to re-blogging, and anything geode is one of them! Nature is an amazing artist and geodes are truly unique and beautiful. Geodes can be hard to work with though, but not this version - it’s made out of polymer clay and glitter glass encased in a hand twisted gold wire.

"Until you’re about the age of twenty, you read everything, and you like it simply because you are reading it. Then between twenty and thirty you pick what you want, and you read the best, you read all the great works. After that you sit and wait for them to be written. But you know, the least known, the least famous writers, they are the better ones."

Rest in peace, Gabriel García Márquez. (via theatlantic)

DIY Easiest DIY Ever Agate Necklace Tutorial from Henry Happened. I hesitated posting this because this necklace is even easier to make than the “stick and glue” DIYs I post. It’s buying a agate pendant and making a necklace. So if you would like to start making jewelry at the beginner level - this project is for you.

Gabriel García Márquez Dead: Nobel Prize-Winning Author Dies At 87 (TIMENew York Times)

Colombian Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez was the author of One Hundred Years of Solitude (1967), Autumn of the Patriarch (1975), Love in the Time of Cholera (1985), in addition to many other novels, short stories, and non-fiction works. In 1982 he received the Nobel Prize in Literature for “his novels and short stories, in which the fantastic and the realistic are combined in a richly composed world of imagination, reflecting a continent’s life and conflicts.” García Márquez, only the fourth of six Latin Americans to be awarded the literature prize since its inception in 1901, lamented: “they have taken into account the literature of the sub-continent and have awarded me as a way of awarding all of this literature.” In his acceptance speech, entitled “The Solitude of Latin America”, García Márquez addressed the postcolonial struggles of Latin American nations, and the willing embrace by European institutions of Latin American cultural expression but not its social realities:

Latin America neither wants, nor has any reason, to be a pawn without a will of its own; nor is it merely wishful thinking that its quest for independence and originality should become a Western aspiration. However, the navigational advances that have narrowed such distances between our Americas and Europe seem, conversely, to have accentuated our cultural remoteness. Why is the originality so readily granted us in literature so mistrustfully denied us in our difficult attempts at social change? Why think that the social justice sought by progressive Europeans for their own countries cannot also be a goal for Latin America, with different methods for dissimilar conditions?
