1984

Ohh the 80's ... Good times! When the only concern you had was who were your friends and what would you guys do on Friday night .. Or if that boy or girl was into you .. Who would you take to the prom .. And that interminable and unforgetable summer vacation!

Then came the 90's and all that crazy dudes wanted to know was labor, financial markets, the New York stock exchange and of course... money!

And now the 2000's .. In the beginning was a revival of recent decades and now this mess that no one understands very much .. It's everyone for itself and everybody wants to be famous!!
Ohh .. The 80's ...

I didn't live this time 'cause I was born in 1984, only have seen in the movies and like it... a lot!
And mainly the John Hughes movies .. Romantic Comedies were more sweet and funny and passionate back then! Judd Nelson doesn't let me lie!!

The songs, the accessories and the hair were much more funnier! In fact I even have already written about it here ..

It's just that a couple of days ago I saw a movie with Emma Stone that inspired me to think about it... the life style of the 80's.. the movies... and of course... the chivalry!

Please be my guest in this nostalgic trip to the past and ask yourself too... What the f* happened with the chivalry???





"Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80's movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80's movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life."

Matthew Broderick in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off "(1986), by John Hughes

P.S.: The other 2 movies Emma talks about is "Say anything" (1989), with John Cusack and by Cameron Crowe - one of my favorite directors - and "Can't buy me love" (1987), with Patrick Dempsey and by Steve Rash - I recommend both!!


Ohh... the 80's...

Talk to Her

International Women's Day and the topic of the moment is: Feminism ... Finally!
Much has been said of gender equality, equal rights and especially the respect we want.
Now we have achieved the labor market, we deserve, in addition to wages equal to those that men have, more credibility so that we can grow professionally.
After all, every woman has the right to be a mother and homemaker, but also has the right to be a successful professional! Whether she is a business woman, actress or architect.
For me that grew up listening to that feminism was not a good thing and that always wanted to be independent, all this discussion is being great (especially after Beyoncè entered in the middle of it) because I didn't knew it would be so difficult to gain the respect of people in the middle work.
Anyway ... before this post gets too heavy and turns up in a political speech I'll stop here!
Just leave these messages of strong women who follow giving us inspiration to keep going!


Patricia Arquette took Meryl Streep and JLo insane with her Oscars acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress as she said about equal rights for men and women.
(The Academy Awards 2015 presentation)



Emma Watson became a new face of the global push for feminism when she spoke for an UN campaign #HeForShe: The movement for gender equality was originally conceived as a struggle led only by women for women.



I'm not just a beautiful face wearing a beautiful dress... Reese Witherspoon promoted the #AskHerMore campaign at the Oscars 2015, saying "We're more than just our dresses" and "Ask her about the causes she supports, not her support garments"


And a campaign that stimulates the women's leadership!


Beyoncé new album is all about Feminism ♡


"We teach girls to shrink themselves
To make themselves smaller
We say to girls,
"You can have ambition
But not too much
You should aim to be successful
But not too successful
Otherwise you will threaten the man."
Because I am female
I am expected to aspire to marriage
I am expected to make my life choices
Always keeping in mind that
Marriage is the most important
Now marriage can be a source of
Joy and love and mutual support
But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage
And we don't teach boys the same?
We raise girls to see each other as competitors
Not for jobs or for accomplishments
Which I think can be a good thing
But for the attention of men
We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings
In the way that boys are
Feminist: the person who believes in the social
Political, and economic equality of the sexes"
Flawless, by Beyoncè

After all... Who run the World?!


*Girls!
