No place like home - BenchBags post (25)

There’s no place like home.  It’s as simple as that – comfort would be the word I’d use to describe it.  A place you feel your own; your music, your belongings, your rules. It’s a part of your life reflected in the pictures that hang on your walls, in those things you buy to remember where you’ve travelled, and in the gifts received from loved ones spread throughout your house that let you relive memories and special moments. Your books, your films, long conversations over a cup of coffee. All those songs you sing in the shower, unending dinners with…

Take a breath - A personal post by BenchBags

This week’s post is a bit different.  It’s personal, reflexive and tells a story that we hope will inspire you. A brave heart, free and adventurous.

She’s that type of person who with her own actions solves all of her doubts or moves to another continent to achieve her goals, without thinking about it twice.…

You should take a look - Fashion style BenchBags

To Observe. That wonderful virtue of assimilating all that happens around us; to see everything out there from our own perspective.   To Observe. And end up adapting what we see to our actions, our lifestyle and of course, to the way we dress.   Observe bright colors and feel the warmth of spring; use what we see everyday and give it another shape. Fit geometry into a dress, turn the flowers you like most into your favorite blouse, or cover your skirt with polka dots.   Observe, be inspired and observe again.  This is what life is all about,…

revolution as a social change - Post BenchBags (21)

Let’s change the way we look at the world and exchange our impressions.  Let our ideas flow and find a bunch of colors that mean everything and nothing at the same time. Hagamos un intercambio de impresiones, de formas de ver el mundo. Hagamos una lluvia de ideas, un montón de colores que signifiquen todo y nada.     Beauty is in diversity and keeping true to our own personality.  Let’s rid ourselves of fashion trends and contribute with our own style – that personal touch that makes us stand out. Lo bonito de la diversidad y la fidelidad de…
