A notebook gives you a place to write down what makes you angry or sad or amazed, to write down what you noticed and don’t want to forget. Memories just may be the most important possession anyone has. Our memories shape what we write. It’s a way to connect yourself with your own unique history.
We came across some nice notebooks on the internet. At Blue Blood we write down our thoughts and idea’s in our own monogram notebook. We selected some nice pictures to share with you guys.

So yes, today it is officially the 1st day of Autumn but that doesn’t mean the sun is going to stop on shining. We absolutely adore the new fall/winter collection of Super Sunglasses. These hand made Italian acetate sunglasses come in multiple colours and are made to the highest possible standards. Or if you are going ski-ing this winter, Super sunglasses have created a Topski collection whereby all sunglasses have mirrored lenses and contain leather to protect you from all sun, snow and wind. Not only we are fan but also many celebrities and fashionistas have been spot wearing Super shades. They are sold in leading fashion stores around the world and also in one of Blue Blood’s favourite stores, Colette in Paris.
“Foosball”, “Futbolín”, “Kicker” – however you wish to call it, the real name for the famous miniaturised game of football is called “Baby-foot”.
The first popular game of table football was invented by a French man, Lucien Rosengart. After all those years that this game was viewed as a game mainly aimed at men – Baby-foot has now turned into Le Barbie-Foot. The young, creative French designer Chloé Ruchon has collaborated with the well known Baby-foot maker, Bonzini and the brand Barbie by Mattel.
With this newly invented table she brings two worlds together. The Barbie doll is symbol of ultra feminity. The doll with its exaggerated proportions portrays a so called “ideal female picture”. The game of football is mainly, enjoyed, watched and played by the predominantly male world. By combining these two juxtapositions, Chloé Ruchon encourages and provokes thoughts about different ways of thinking and the everyday subjects and the social norms we face.
Whoever said women can’t play football…think again.
Beginning of last week this table arrived at one of Blue Blood’s favourite stores called Colette in Paris.
