This blog has a lot of talk about daily life, thoughts, design, recipes & good stuff around the ‘net. We need a slight push sometimes to open our eyes and get going. Think earthly possessions or a simple recipe. Things that make our days in simple ways. Think coffee. This is a blog about those things.
It was a busy day of going to meetings and then coming home to type up the analyses. Nothing feels better than feeling useful and productive, plus the learning experience. And now on tv there is a show about moms making their 3 to 6 year-olds compete in 'pageant's - honestly I hadn't really heard about them before. This one they're talking about is 'Miss Georgia'. The categories go on like 'best hair', 'best dress', 'best smile', etc. They put make up on the baby girls, even fake tans on (some of) them! They practice for days with coaches and all. The moms are apparently preparing the girls as the 'Miss America's of tomorrow. It's so weird. But I'm watching it. It's a cultural observation project for me. I am guessing their argument is that it's a good way for girls to build confidence and learn how to present themselves, which looks good on paper (or the screen) but seeing the heavy make-up on a 3-year-old to make her look like the mother of the bride at a wedding party or a little girl not wanting to go out on the stage, it gives me mixed feelings. What's funny is, I've known people who would have loved to be on a competition like that as a little girl. And now they're changing into swimsuits. Oh God.
Hello blog! It's hard to believe years have passed since my last post and as I get inspired about a new path I'd like to try, I returned to my blog as a starting point, since for such a long time it used to be a platform I felt comfortable sharing my thoughts. I will talk about the design process of Liddy's nursery, the inspiration point, and how it all came together. These days I'm into sewing and maybe everyone who is new to sewing goes through this "pillow" phase, where all they want to do is sew pillows (they are relatively easy to make and they are pretty, right?). As I browse through fabric.com, I see so many amazing fabrics that inspire me to decorate a whole new nursery all over again but I'm pretty sure we are done having babies. But there is no reason I shouldn't be decorating nurseries! One thing I thought I can do is help parents-to-be find the inspiration to come up with a fresh theme and follow that thread to curate the objects that pull…
Today I made a decision. I decided to celebrate my life, here in the USA, love it and remember that this is my dream coming true. I decided when I was walking through the aisles of Trader Joe's and hearing Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone, remembering Marji and how I longed to be here where she is, where all my dear friends are, and how I changed my life deliberately to be here. I decided never to forget how meant-to-be everything is and how I can choose to be happy at every moment. So I celebrate my life, I celebrate who I am, I celebrate my husband and who he is and what we have, and of course I can't do anything but celebrate my beautiful Canberk. I decided to celebrate what I have instead of feel bad about what I don't. I decided to live life as a celebration and not a grievance. I also decided to take good care of my teeth and face. I am recycling and that makes me feel good, too. I sell things I'm not crazy about anymore and I buy things I'm crazy ab…
aft çıktığında mesela, eczaneye ilaç almaya gidersin, eczacı ilacı yarısaydam pembe bir kağıtla paketler, verirken de geçmiş olsun der. ve o an çok rahatlatıcı bir andır - eczacı derdini anlamış ve sana geçmiş olsun demiştir. iyileşme sanki o andan itibaren başlar.
