Hate is for the Weak

Originally posted on Excuse My Truths:

Growing up my mother, being the wonderful woman that she is, always told me and my siblings to never use the word hate. “Hate is an ugly word, it’s a strong word. You can never hate someone. Dislike maybe,  but never hate.”

Lately I’ve seen people talk about how much they hate or dislike a person. To be honest I use to say this pretty often myself. Whenever I’d get mad at someone or a situation that did not go in my favor I would say, “Ugh, I hate them”. I’ve even told people face-to-face that I hate them. Things like this really upset me. As I look back on the things I did I become upset with myself. Attention was all I wanted from the people that I “hated”.

I’ve come to realize that I don’t hate or dislike people. Personally, I don’t see a point in doing so. The…

Votre visage est une vraie source d’informations • Your face is a real source of information

Face à des émotions, votre visage “réagit” de plusieurs façons, il en va de soi, des contractions musculaires se produisent formant alors ce qui s’appelle des expressions faciales, c’est alors le premier point de cet article. Mais la seconde partie devrait vous intéresser d’avantage, des réactions physiologiques appelés micro-démengeaisons interviennent pour travestir votre pensée!

Darwin et Duchenne  prédécesseur des scientifiques actuels, ont découvert et travaillé longuement sur les expressions faciales, suivit de Silvan_Tomkins dans les années 1960 qui créa une liste de six émotions différentes perceptible sur le faciès, comprenant : l’intérêt (excitation du a l’intérêt), la jouissance (joie), surprise (le sursaut), détresse (angoisse), colère (rage), peur (ou terreur). Cette liste à été retravaillé par le Dr. Ekman, grand psychologue, pionnier dans l’étude des émotions dans leurs relations aux expressions faciales, qui lui s’intéressa après restructuration des études précédentes aux micro-expressions. Des expressions faciales durant moins d’une seconde, difficilement perceptible…

False Freedom and Free Will

Originally posted on PERSONOCRATIC SEEDS:

L uckily, I live in Canada, a free country. Canadian citizens are guaranteed rights and privileges that the inhabitants of many other countries envy. Yet, with worsening working conditions, increasing taxation, crumbling public services, lowering food quality, and an ever-increasing national debt, my old rose-colored glasses cannot hide the truth anymore. Despite the six million laws regulating Canadians, I have never had fewer rights, and my privileges have never been that expensive to hold on to. Is life in Canada that perfect? Am I as free as I am told?

FALSE FREEDOM

Napoleon talked about freedom in the following way:

Stupid people, cowardly people, since the continuation of oppression does not give you the necessary energy, since you content yourselves with useless complaints when you could be roaring, since you are millions and you let a dozen children armed with little sticks control you as they wish…

About Vikings Television Program on the History Channel on Sunday 8/9c.:“The HISTORY® original series Vikings transports us to the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), a Viking warrior and farmer who yearns to explore—and raid—the distant shores across the ocean. His ambition puts him at odds with local chieftain Earl Haraldson (Gabriel Byrne), who insists on sending his raiders to the impoverished east rather than the uncharted west. When Ragnar teams up with his boat builder friend Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) to craft a new generation of intrepid ships capable of conquering the rough northern seas, the stage is set for conflict.

But for all its warfare and bloodshed, Vikings is also a story of family and brotherhood, capturing the love and affection between Ragnar and his wife, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), a…

With the romantic pressure of Valentine’s Day well behind us

(but hopefully still a few chocolates left) we can move on to something truly important;

 FASHION!!

Between trying to keep up with the Winter Olympics, ‘Downton Abbey’, ‘House of Cards’ (husband; finished, me; Fail) and, lest we forget, plain old RealLife, staying on top of all the shows during NY & London Fashion Week this season required a supremely valiant effort.

Sometimes a girl’s just gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.

You strap on that (hand painted) helmet and forge ahead.

There were oh SO many heart-stopping collections but one of my favourites took place just a couple of days ago at “Burberry Prorsum”.

Burberry Fall 2014

Christopher Bailey knocked it out of the park for me with his “Bloomsbury Girls” Fall 2014 collection.

A couple of months ago I was asked to weigh in on what trends I…

Beautiful homes

Originally posted on finding home:

Each house we design and draw is a work of art, handcrafted in its detail. We often refer to the houses we design as bespoke, like a custom tailored outfit: a dress or a suit. Just as every house needs a bedroom, bathroom and a kitchen, every suit has sleeves, buttons and collar. Each bespoke suit is made to fit the wearer and every house we do is crafted for each of our clients.

We often find ourselves taking the analogy further. Each house can be discussed in anthropomorphic terms – relating it to the human body or figure and even how we dress our bodies.

When you are out on a porch, enjoying the view, the porch roof should sit down low, like the brim of a baseball cap over your eyes. Perfect for a sunset and a cool drink.
