May I give you some advice?

While doing the Crow Pose in Yoga…

This is not me!!! But while attempting this pose, please note the word attempting, our delightful instructor reminded us of our intention for the day which was working through fear. She then told us about her fear as a child. Like so many young girls she was always concerned and fearful about what other people thought of her. She confided this fear to her grandmother. Her grandmother told her it was none of her damn business! I love the simplicity and merit to this advice. This has stuck with her all of her life and it got me thinking about all the sage advice I have gotten from my grandmother and mother.

My Grandmother: When the neighborhood boys refused to play with me she said, “Some day you’ll have to carry a big stick!” At 6 I didn’t understand the meaning and wondered why I would want to beat them with a stick as they already didn’t want to be around me?

My Mother: “Get a good education, don’t rely on you looks, make your own money and don’t get married!” Sorry about the last one Mom. Made it to 37 though! And, we know how much you love Richard.

Now that I have shared with you,  I hope you will take a moment and share some guiding advice with me.

I’ve been texted???

I have several friends that are in my age neighborhood…

that are doing the online dating thingy. Honestly, I would rather scrape paint but the one thing that is universally complained about is texting. No one talks on the phone anymore. It’s like my niece, Erica, said to me a couple of years back. “Aunt Carol, everyone knows you’re old.” I beg your pardon? “Only old people leave messages. I know you called.” Humph! So, those of you that have been with me awhile know how my brain works… I got to thinking about texting and that lead me to texture. Sorry, it’s messy in my head!
Last week I told you I was into fiber but I realized that wasn’t really correct. It’s texture that attracts me. Think about the Twisted Sister Technique. It’s all about using hundreds of beads etc. I was exploring texture when I stumbled on to Viktor & Rolf Couture. OMG! Have a peak and I hope you’ll enjoy the video.

Interesting Twist to My Armani Bloomer Post

Benjamin Wild’s recent blog on Kate Middleton’s photo shoot provided an interesting counterpoint to my politics in fashion post, “Where are my Armani Bloomers?”  I hope you enjoy this. C

Photographing the Duchess of Cambridge for the centenary cover of British Vogue was surely an obvious choice. Few people at present seem to inspire as much popular sympathy, pique as much interest and reflect the magazine’s focus on high style and high society, than the wife of Britain’s future king. Deciding whom to photograph was […]
