Noches de Diseño 2- A Pre Hispanicize Event

HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!! Gracias for joining me for part 2 of Sherwin Williams' Noches de Diseño. And porsea- just in case you didn't read the first one, aqui lo tienes, here it is.  It was good verdad?  Ok, Continuing.

After the art galleries and street murals we were all inspired by the colors and different styles we saw, and quite a few of us had multi ideas on how we would bring some of this into our own lives. Don't know who put this event together, but they know their stuff! They organically tied this in to a new store opening, where the amicable owner/manager Angelo helped us find the materials we needed for our creations. Did you know Babushka used to be a faux painter?  Oh si My Beautifuls, I was in heaven!  Y ahora that Sweetie and I are consolidating living spaces and remodeling our home??  Por fa, this was second only to café y chocolate!


Grand Opening of Miami Store
2615 Biscayne Blvd.


They showed us various cool apps available to make your world exactamente how you want it.
  Here's the page so you can choose your favorite color-based on your life's hues. 
And a video peek because BB thinks it's so cool.




Buenisimo right?!?!?


And you know what else, actually who(m) else is cool and buenisima??

Known as "la periodista filantropica"-"the philanthropic journalist", she's the host of Extreme Makeover Home Edition Latin America.  Bringing over 13 years of experience in the Hispanic TV Market, she's a celebrity, fashion setter, commentator, tv show host and a natural choice for a guest spot w/the Sherwin Williams team.  And natural is the perfect adjective for this lovely lady.  Not only does she inspire others to overcome their perceived handicaps, she comes across as totally sincere and real when you speak to her; truly "plain folk", which in BB's eyes makes her a Perla. Having lost her eye at the age of two, she didn't let anyone stop her from her dreams and now is helping many acheive their dreams.  Sonia exemplifies how we choose the colors of our lives and again, good job @SWPintura group for seeing the match in this. Ok si, I have total admiration for this Bella who exudes intelligence, self-reliance, and inner strength - not to mention the BEST first name ever!!  

; )

At this point it was getting late, but the organizers of the night still had wonderful plans for us.  Les digo, I'm a tellin' ya, the Sherwin Williams team definitely knows how to throw a party!  Y los "goody bags"? The goody bags proved to Babushka that they know Latinas well and I will use and enjoy the contents for years to come.  But that reveal will be in the next and final post of the series.  Quee??  JU SO FONII!!! Oh My Beautifuls, you should know by now BB savors each adventure, the story it brings, and my dances with you.  Hasta la proxima-


Babushka Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.


P.S.  As previously stated: The opinions expressed here are from the corazon and all BB's.  No expectation of posts or any social media promoting was stressed by the sponsor.  Babushka received no monetary compensation- though, como siempre, I'm always open to negotiations.  ; )

  2. My home needs a makeover as well. It needs basic updating but with little time and not so much money, it has been on the back burner. Good luck with your remodels. Funny how simple paint can make a huge difference in a home.

  5. I've always been such a scaredy cat when it comes to color. My parents used nothing but white for the walls, and I guess that stuck with me. Luckily, our new home has some great color in it already, which I am loving. But still not brave enough to try on my own, lol!
    Stopping in from the Show Off blog party!
