the project

When life gives you sun rays… You use them to cook.

barbie confessions

And when life gives you a barbie exhibition, you wake up very early and be the first to enter the room.

Want to know a few fun things about Barbie?

  • The 1992 Totally Hair Barbie is the best-selling Barbie to date.The 1992 Totally Hair Barbie is the best-selling Barbie to date.
  • The first Barbie was sold for 3$. On amazon, the cheapest one I could find is around 12$.
  • Barbie never got married, and never had children. She’s been totally devoted to her multidisciplinary career (180 to date).
  • Barbie is also a huge melting pot: 50 nationalities :-).
  • On 2010, Vogue Italy published the Barbie issue.
  • I have 5 collectible Barbies. After the exhibition I entered my frightening cupboard and placed them where they belong to: my home office (yes, the one I share with Smeagol the beagle). Scarlett, even if she inappropriately lost a shoe a long time ago, is my favorite.

One question for you: have you ever read Barbie’s magazine? I’d die to have at least 1 vintage copy of it (will search the web).

the ginger and lime sun tea recipe

As anticipated, I’m sun cooking. The first recipe of the sun project is sun tea. A jar that you put outside the window for a few hours, without having to turn on the boiler.
