Think, think, think... sustainable!

We all know the importance of reducing our CO2 emissions... that's why, with a group of students from Design and Architecture in the Catholic University of Chile we have started the process to innovate with new products and services to apply as sustainable project in the university.

Most of the process of making good design, is to analyze good opportunities in the interaction between users and the project. But also it helps to hear people with good ideas and learn from others that are doing things! So if you have some amazing ideas you just don't know who to tell or you have seen things in your country... maybe in other blogs! and you think they were pretty nice and intelligent solutions, tell me!
Maybe your wonderful idea will be part of this revolution of changes to help our planet and our selves.

Peace & Love ;)

Cuando todo parece ser diferente * When all seems to be different

Hace unas semanas atrás pensaba que hoy estaría en otro lugar, bajo otras circunstancias... pero la vida da vueltas y de alguna manera me devolvió a mi tierra natal mucho antes de lo esperado.

Ahora, de vuelta en Santiago, estoy llena de proyectos nuevos, nuevas metas y experiencias que no esperé toparme tan pronto en mi vida. Es impresionante como a veces la vida nos depara cosas inimaginables así no más, con la misma naturalidad con que las plantas crecen y los ríos fluyen.

Estoy feliz de dejarme llevar por este impulso y espero que esto pueda seguir de la mano a este blog que creé con tanto amor... creo que tendré que armarme de nuevo una rutina con ustedes chicos, porque no los puedo dejar desinformados por tanto tiempo!!! hahaha

muchos besos y que tengan un Marzo lleno de buenas sorpresas.

A few weeks ago I thought I would be some where else, under other circumstances... but life is always changing and some way it sended me back to my mother nation sooner than I expected.

Now, back in Santiago, I'm full of new projects, new objectives and experiences that I'd never thougth I would reach so early in my life. It's quite impressive how life plans unbelievable things just like that... with the same mood that plants have to grow and rivers to flow.

I'm very happy of letting my self go with the impulse and I hope it will keep on moving hand by hand with this blog that I created with so much love... I think I'll have to re-do an agenda with you guys, because I can't leave you all so abandoned for so long!! hahaha 

big kisses and have a plenty-of-nice-surprises-MARCH.

Cooking tips!

Last weekend I was with my family and we made a huge mistake!
We wanted to make a nice natural shrimps sauce and in stead of boiling the entire shrimps to use their flavor, we added just a part. If you make such a mistake, here you have a good tip to bring the flavor on!

I really don't know the science behind this, but we just added some pieces of onion and cooked (low fire) 5 minutes, the result was shrimps sauce!!! I really have to say... the onion for some reason helped to bring back to life all that mess we where doing and it tasted great!!!

So once again as we all know, there's always a way to save your dinner.
I will try to repeat it on purpose to see if I have the same result...
any experts to give me a real reason why does it works?

The blogger I've chosen to be

Now that I've had time to think about me, the blog, you guys (the whole blogging thing)... I would like to talk about this idea I want to come true:

I would love to make this blog 100% made by "Giraffe" in matters of design, images and stories... I just want the process to be natural and I'm telling you because I believe it's like pushing myself to the next step. 

After all, I made this blog because I really wanted to share things I love about life and now that I've started, I figured out that there's so many stories that have to be tell, that really worth it and they are just across the street.

Looking closer I'm sure that we'll always find something as special and as unique as a cover of Vogue or the looks we found in a magazine. It's just we need to discover those things and I believe that with this blog I will push my self to look after it... Because we all deserve to know about the beautiful thing of the world, no matter how far we are.

I'd like to let you all know about what surrounds me because you never know... some day you will show me something I didn't expected and not even dreamed about!

Isn't it beautiful? Shearing experiences so we all are able to enjoy the same things, places or who knows what?... dishes? hahaha I'm enjoying this process so much!

Hope I'll find stories that make you smile... And also hope you will come to Chile and see the beautiful natural wonders that this country have for all of us. Also now that I'm starting my next journey, I'll look after more things to show and more experiences to share.

I love to be a blogger!!
