Classy Chocolate...

...Chocolat, Sjokolade, Suklaa, 巧克力, Schokolade, σοκολάτα, čokolada, Cioccolato, Chocolate...

Hi guys! This week delicious shades of chocolate caught my eye...yep! the flavor color of this post is chocolate, delicious color...
This sounds ambitious, perhaps a little silly, but the following pictures may be a little something that will keep us all satisfied until the next craving hits...

Hola gente! Esta semana llamaron mi atención los deliciosos tonos del chocolate...yep! el sabor color de este post es el chocolate, un color delicioso...
Esto suena ambicioso, tal vez un poco tonto, pero las siguientes imágenes pueden ser ese "algo" que nos mantendrá satisfechos hasta que el próximo antojo llegue...


How do you find the chocolate brown color?
Some may refer to it as exciting as chocolates are and others as boring as the soil may look. However, those don't indicate the exact meaning of dark brown or chocolate brown.
¿Qué te parece el color marrón chocolate?
Algunos lo encuentran tan emocionante como los chocolates y otros tan aburridos como un terrón de barro.  Sin embargo, estas opiniones no muestran el significado exacto de color marrón oscuro o marrón chocolate.




Brown represents earthiness. While it might be considered a little on the dull side, it also evokes steadfastness, simplicity, friendliness, dependability, and health. 
El marrón representa lo terrenal. Y si bien podría considerarse un poco aburrido , éste también evoca constancia, sencillez, amabilidad, confiabilidad y salud.




I'm sure you’ve probably heard your mom, aunt, or stuffy friend repeat one of the most pervasive old rules, "never mix black and brown in an outfit."
Estoy seguro que has oído probablemente a tu mamá,tu tía, o algún un amigo repetir una de las mas conocidas viejas reglas, "nunca mezcles negro y marrón en un equipo."



Neutrals go with everything! I don't know who decided that certain neutrals shouldn't be mixed and matched. Neutrals go with every color, including each other.
¡Los neutrales van con todo! No sé quién decidió que los neutrales no deben ser mezclados y coordinados. Los neutrales van con todos los colores, incluso entre sí.




However, chocolate brown and black is a difficult combination to pull off, but remember, you’ll look great as long as you wear it with confidence!
Sin embargo, marrón chocolate con negro es una combinación difícil de lograr, sólo recuerda, te verás muy bien ¡siempre y cuando los lleves con confianza!




Be it the warm, rich chocolate flavor color of a simple silk tie or the real yummy deal of this decadent chocolate suit with a bow tie...wear it with attitude!
Ya sea el  cálido y rico sabor color chocolate de una simple corbata de seda o la verdaderamente deliciosa apuesta por este traje en decadente chocolate con corbatín...¡llévalos con actitud!




If you're interested in bringing the look of chocolate into your home, here are some ideas: 
Leather is a perfect choice, it looks rich and deep, and will add both comfort and style to your room.
Si estás interesado en llevar la sensación del chocolate a tu casa, he aquí algunas ideas:
El cuero es una opción perfecta, se ve rico e intenso, y agregará comodidad y estilo a tu ambiente.





Pair your chocolate flavors colors with liberal amounts of a contrasting light neutral. A few simple additions in white, dove grey or a lighter bisque color can really make a dramatic statement.
Combina los sabores colores del chocolate con abundancia de contrastes en luminosos neutrales.  Algunas adiciones simples en blanco, gris paloma o un color tostado ligero pueden realmente agregar un toque dramático.



When used in architecture chocolate brown get a paradoxical effect...because it is a natural, down-to-earth neutral color, and we're so used to see it around us, we doesn't register it as a "real" color most of the time...
Cuando se utiliza en arquitectura de marrón chocolate consigue un efecto paradójico...porque es un color natural, neutral y terreno, y estamos tan acostumbrados a verlo a nuestro alrededor, no lo registramos como un "verdadero" color la mayor parte del tiempo...

When it comes to selecting car colour, brown is firmly at the bottom of my check list. But what's not to like in the decadent Hot Chocolate Mini Cooper Clubman?
Cuando se trata de seleccionar el color del auto, el marrón está firmemente en la parte inferior de mi lista. Pero ¿qué puede no gustarme en la decadente Hot Chocolate Mini Cooper Clubman?




Brown chocolate especially when it’s so well balanced like in  Modigliani portraits, it doesn’t saturate, on the contrary, it produces sensations of stability, approachability and  sense of orderliness.
El marrón chocolate especialmente cuando está tan bien equilibrado como en los retratos de Modigliani, no se satura, por el contrario, produce sensaciones de estabilidad, cercanía y sentido de orden.

 


But, why do we love chocolate so much?
Chocolate naturally contains "uppers" like caffeine, sugars, and phenylthalymine, which will make your heart pound a little harder which is often equated to the feeling of being in love!...
Pero, ¿por qué nos gusta tanto el chocolate?
El chocolate contiene  "estimulantes"naturales como la cafeína, los azúcares y la feniletilamina, lo que hará que tu corazón lata un poco más fuerte y esto  a menudo se equipara a la sensación de estar enamorado! 


Two little hearts walking...
Dos pequeños corazones para caminar...


It also has the right chemistry, people who eat chocolate produce natural opiates in their brains that soothe the nerves and make them feel good.
También tiene la química adecuada, las personas que comen chocolate producen opiáceos naturales en el cerebro que calman los nervios y los hacen sentir bien.


The 2012 Summer Paralympic Games. London.

Two BIG hearts to run...

Dos GRANDES corazones para correr...

And when we feel good, we try harder, and we do not give up...at nothing...
Y cuando nos sentimos bien, nos esforzamos más, y no nos damos por vencidos...ante nada...



Cree que puedes & estás a medio camino.



If you wonder what has that cake to do with anything?
It’s a cake! It's actually a CHOCOLATE  birthday cake...
SI te preguntas  qué tiene esa torta que ver con nada?
¡Es una torta! En realidad es una torta de cumpleaños de CHOCOLATE ...

It’s my Mom’s birthday today!!!
¡¡¡Hoy es el cumpleaños de mi mamá!!!  

She deserves a cake and since chocolate is her weakness, then a decadent and sumptuous and delicious chocolate cake is perfect for the occasion!

Ella se merece una torta y como el chocolate es su debilidad, ¡entonces  un pastel de chocolate decadente, suntuoso y delicioso es perfecto para la ocasión!

Happy birthday MAMI!!!...May this be your best year yet!
¡Feliz cumpleaños MAMI!...¡ Que este sea tu mejor año!

Love forever,
Te ama siempre, 


Inés
Your favorite daughter (of course)
Tu hija favorita (por supuesto)

  44. As a true chocoholic (I have some chocolate every day!!)this post really appealed to me. I also have a lot of brown in my wardrobe. I especially love rich brown leather and I love to wear it with camel and cream. I must admit I rarely put it with black but I do think it can look stylish and a different look (I like your black and brown choices here too) Happy birthday to your Mum.

  53. Wow...I was mostly impressed by the Chocolate Mini, and of course, loved the tribute to the paralympics. I think it's a 'handsome color' that usually implies warmth, elegance and strengh. I love wooded floors with that color for instance! And I love chocolate! :D Happy B-Day to the Queen! Viva las mamis! Besos!

  62. No soy la mejor amiga de este color, lo tengo sólo en carteras y en zapatos.
    Tal vez el próximo otoño me anime, pero en general cuando llega el frío prefiero colores vibrantes y el negro obviamente :)
    Justo ahora tengo una mascarilla de chocolate en mi rostro.. su aroma es mortal! jaja

  64. Precioso e inspirador post. No paré de leer en ningún momento! Es verdad que al vestir es difícil de combinar el negro con el color chocolate, pero como muestras en las fotos, es muy posible!. Me gusta mucho como luce el café en la arquitectura porque nos da una sensación de un ambiente más natural lo que nos da paz automáticamente y nos hace sentir a gusto. Y el chocolate para comer no es mi favorito, pero una vez al mes casi todas las mujeres nos antojamos cierto? jaja.

    Besos y abrazos.
