Happy New Year, dear friends! I wish you all a great 2018, filled with blessings!
I took a longer break from blogging than I originally intended to but after two years of almost continuous posting I felt the need to rethink the whole process and come up with a new schedule. So from now on I’ll try to blog three times a week, four if I find something great that I want to share with you right away. Also, if there’s anything design-related that you’d like to read about, don’t hesitate to let me know in your comments below.
As for today’s post, I had something else in mind but last night’s Golden Globe Awards were too good not too talk about. The atmosphere was charged with the politics of sexual harassment and discrimination revealed by the scandals that Hollywood has been facing over the past months. Most attendees at the Globes showed solidarity with victims of sexual assault and harassment in the entertainment industry by following the black dress code. This produced not only the united Time’s Up front but also great fashion, one of the best we’ve seen in recent years. Angelina Jolie, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Diane Kruger, Viola Davis, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Margot Robbie were among my favorites last night.
Seth Meyers was the perfect host, Jennifer Aniston showed up looking as lovely as ever, Angelina Jolie was there too, accompanied by her son Pax.

One of the great takeaways was a list of great new shows to watch – Big Little Lies, Lady Bird and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, The Post and Darkest Hour are now on our list! But by far the most dramatic moment of the night was when Oprah was awarded the Cecile B. DeMille Award for outstanding achievements in the entertainment industry. Her speech was heartfelt and chilling at the same time, the highlight of a night already charged with politics! You gotta love Oprah! The woman is a force of nature, a hurricane that leaves you hypnotized and touched to the core. Here’s the transcript of her speech, in a separate post as it deserves a place of it’s own!
