Rihanna Spent $160K Marilyn Monroe Portrait!

The Barbados native has recently purchased a crystal-encrusted portrait of Marilyn Monroe.  According to sources, the portrait is five square feet, weighs nearly 200 pounds, consists of more than 65,000 Swarovski crystals… and you know how much it costs?  A rough $160,000!  That’s too much! ^_^

According to an article, at PopCrush.com:

Rihanna actually commissioned British artist Claire Milner (through the company Gemstone Creative, according to the Daily Mail) to create the portrait, which is done mostly in shades of green, blue, black and white, for her L.A. home. When asked about the artwork, Milner said, “I tried to show the glitter of the public life and then the sadness in Marilyn’s eyes.”

“A 100 per cent Swarovski crystal portrait is very luxurious — people stand and stare because it constantly changes colour, sending rainbows round the room.”

This is going to be another art addition to her mansion in Hollywood, she also have one room dedicated to another one of her idols, Bob Marley.

Mellow Yellow Monday #32



This photo was taken last Sunday, we are on a one-day visit at Picnic Groove, Tagaytay.  It simply a family day, a family trip to be together with relatives.

We are at the park’s payment area, it is a small building displaying some cultures of the province of Batangas.  So, as one of the souvenirs, we took a picture of me and my cousins along with the cute Pilipino art.

This One Will Really Stay…

Ordered a new header at Painted Candy for my personal blog last week.  And earlier today I got my new header, so I spent the whole after tweaking (AGAIN!) my personal blog.

I finished tweaking the whole template before midnight, so after all of it, I resume to updating my blogs and finishing tasks before deadline today.  As much as I want to share the preview of my new blog header here I can’t. :-(   I’m already to tired to edit and put watermark on the header.  But if you really want to see the outcome, simply click here, Zoie’s Mom Blogging.  ^_^
