Holiday Favorites 11.30.14

Delicious tarts from the Confeitaria Colombo bakery in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


Crème brûlée is always a welcome treat when the weather is not cooperating. It is comfort food at its simplest!

What better way to end the holiday weekend than with a few stylish favorites? I love discovering bits of new information from friends, reading or through shear observation, and then sharing these delightful tidbits on Stylish Heath. But, when one travels to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for the holiday weekend, like our on the spot reporter Tony, what does one do when they arrive during the rainy season and cloud cover prevails? Well the next best thing of course…head to the nearest bakeries and patisseries along the shores of Ipanema and Copacabana in search of the best treats. Crème brûlée and tarts always hit the spot when the option for sun-bathing at the beach has been rained out.

“Ai Weiwei: Not at Blenheim Palace” by Jessica Sarah Rinland {Click here to see video}
Part one of the portrait of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, China’s most famous dissident, places flowers in the basket of a bike parked outside his home and will continue to do so until his passport is returned by the Chinese Government. When he was arrested in 2011 and held for 81 days without charge, this sparked global protest. With his passport confiscated Ai currently detained in China works under restricted conditions.

No matter what the form of conveyance I love beauty tips, whether word of mouth, sitting at the beauty salon, chatting at work or watching a video, we can always accept a piece of useful information communicated by an expert!
