*Doodle, Make, Give*

I'm back after a long break full of LiMoBliss! Sorry about the lack of updates.

Today I want to share a wonderful event I was invited to participate in.
The Designer Charity Doodle Wall, hosted by the super talented and lovely designer Rachael Taylor, is a freehand drawing space sponsored by that took place at Rachael's stand during, Top Drawer this week. The best thing about this doodle adventure is that it was a collaboration between lots of talented designers. The final product will be scanned and made into a wallpaper that will be sold with all proceeds going to Cancer Research UK. How fab is that? I love drawing, and doing it for this cause was a definite LiMoBliss.
There is still time to donate if you would like to be a part of this project! Just Click Here.

I had the pleasure of sharing the wall on the day with major talent like the lovely Louise Gale, and my fabulous sister Ximena Escobar.  I loved that there was a real collaboration with no egos, just people who love to draw having fun. Here are some pics from the day!  Enjoy.

Here I am doodling away!

Rachael and Ximena

There was space for everyone

Take a sec to look at Rachael's gorgeous wallpapers

This reminds me of the blackboard we had in our room as kids, she was that much
 taller than me then!

My flower

Louise did a fab job at starting the Doodle Wall, her designs are beautiful.

I don't know about you, but I am officially fed up with the cold and rain. I LOVE the sun, it's a LiMoBliss to feel it on my face. I want it back!
I don't know any sun dances so I've decided to come up with my own ritual to bring out our very own beautiful, warm and glowing star, lets call the sun... by listening to sun related songs!

Can you think of any other good ones?

Have a Lovely weekend.

1.  Chanel Girl  - by Yaz Raja
"Me on Monday Mornings, rushing to get my make-up and hair done."

2. Bliss in Wheels - by Rosie Martinez-Dekker
"I love to ride my bike as much as I can, and I love to do it with the company of my two little mexican dogs, Maya and Camila.
Sometimes my little cat Prunilla wants to come along, she usually goes for a walk with us, so she does not understand why she can't cycle along.
The breeze in my face, the smell of the fresh trees and the sound of the birds make me extremely happy. Riding my bike brings me tons of joy but also clears my mind for new inspiration for designing.

3. Bridesmaids - by Benjamin Corrales
While walking down the isle, thinking about this exciting moment that my friend is about to experience, I can only think of the wonderful things that lie ahead of her. As I listen to my friend walking next to me, I sense her excitement as well and it's a moment that we share alone. It's Magical."

4. A walk in the Park - by Rhiannon Smith
"A walk through Abington park to feed the ducks always puts a smile on my face."

Hello! LiMoBliss is back after 2 lovely weeks on holiday.  I hope you all had a great Easter break, I had the most fabulous time including a lot of walking, visiting, eating, sleeping, shopping, writing (the LiMoBliss book!!), enjoying... I have added a big bunch of LiMoBlisses to my life.  Here is a little taste of the past couple of weeks.

Encountered incredible nature

Followed interesting paths

Visited a Beautiful place Kew Gardens

Stood and watched Florence and the Machine in magical awe at the wonderful Royal Albert Hall.
Bad photo, but this is how close I was.  She reminded me of one of Mucha's beautiful paintings.

This is what Florence could see.
Went to a very cool art exhibition by Philip Gurrey at an even cooler venue, Basement Arts Project!  

I was very excited to find that a lot of your entries to the LiMoBliss competition! Remember there is still time to enter (closes at the end of the month).  All you have to do is send your design here.  We have some amazing prizes for the winner.

It is too often that you hear people talk about their plans of going away, having adventures, doing what they love. It is rare to see someone actually taking the plunge, leaving everything, stepping out of their comfort zones and into their dreams.

Here is a great example! For months I heard my friend Matt talk a about that next adventure he was going to go on, travelling was the only thing on his mind.  It took preparations, separations, resignations and courage.  Only last week he reached Everest base camp after a 24 day track by himself! :) how cool is that?

Here is his blog I Live Easy!  Follow him around the world and get inspired to follow your own dreams!

Seeing my friends being brave and happy is  LiMoBLiss! is it yours too?

Hope everyone had a good weekend here is a fun video to start the week with a smile!

I really enjoyed making yesterdays Cheer-me-up playlist!  Your job on the upcoming two day holiday is to create a playlist on your iPod (or whatever audio device you've got)!

1. Call it LiMoBliss

2. Choose music that makes you smile

3. Do not put more than one song from one same artist (resist the temptation)

4.  Try not to add sentimental songs, preferably uptempo and jolly.

5. Grab some headphones and go out for a walk with the playlist as your soundtrack.

Enjoy :)

For todays LiMoBliss Poll I asked people what they listened to when they wanted to cheer up. Music is a wonderful energiser, it can take you on an emotional roller coaster. Wether it makes you dance, wiggle, hum, tap or sing at the top of your lungs, songs can make us very happy for a few minutes. Thanks to everyone who shared their songs, we now have a wonderful playlist to have cheerful day! LiMoBliss! click on the image to go to the video. Enjoy!

P.S. If you have any more to add, leave a comment at the end :)
