5 Minutes Is All It Takes

Shabana Azmi is one of the people who I have always dreamt of having a conversation with. When I say "dreamt" what I mean is, I wanted it to happen, but I had never planned on making it happen.  And then it happened.

The Mask

Isn't it amazing the front we put up in front of everyone? "A kind of mask, designed on the one hand to make a definite impression upon others, and on the other to conceal the true nature of the individual" -- Carl Jung

The Queen, Shakespeare, and Love

Recently I did sort of a study/research project about King Henry VIII.  There is much to be said of the Tudors, the reign was eventful, to say the least.  Queen Elizabeth, for example, never married.  I have a theory.  Before I say what it is, let me just say, that yes, I realize there are countless theories about Elizabeth and Shakespeare, one more is not going to hurt anyone.  It might be completely off the charts but, anyhow...

Gorillas and Perfumes

To be honest, I'm still trying to figure out why LUSH calls them Gorilla Perfumes, there isn't anything ape like about them.  At least not in the sense that I look at a gorilla, but I'm sure that's something that stems from my ignorance of the subject. There definitely is something to be said about these perfumes. Firstly, it is important to know, that they smell different on every body's skin. Try it on your own skin, step outside the store, and then smell it.

The Good Old Black Stuff

Black eyeliner goes as far back as 10,000 BC. It was first used in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. Cleopatra was known to adorn her eyes with it.  Today it's associated with a variety of fashions starting from Gothic ranging to the 50s pinup look, to a soft ever so light definition to the lashes....

The search for a perfect black eyeliner is never ending. The ultimate question....How do you keep it on the waterline?

Almost every day we come across people that piss us off.  Either someone does something that upsets us, or theres people in our lives that are just there to make our lives miserable (or at least thats how we feel about them).
I feel like sometimes I spend too much time complaining about all types of "horrible" people, and in doing so, I forget the real reason they're there.
Just like we have to experience sadness in our lives in order to appreciate the happiness, or fail in order to celebrate success.  We have to face these people and their ridiculous ways, so that we can really appreciate the good people in our lives.
Today, I want to be thankful for all the amazing people I know.
I don't think I've done anything to deserve their awesomeness in my life, but somehow they ended up being a very very important part of it. Despite the fact that I almost never show my appreciation they stick around, and they're there for me in ways that they might not even know.
This isn't about one person, it's just how I feel right now about all the wonderful people (family and friends) that are a part of who I am....
