SELF-TRICKERY FOR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING By Margaret Boyles January 22, 2014 Try self-trickery. It often works for me. Here’s the dilemma: I know I need to change (something). I’m also aware I don’t want to do the work that seems to be required, or I would have changed already. Escaping an established habit or routine feels […]
Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today is another day for a Down the TBR Hole. How was your day so far? I hope good! The Down the TBR meme was created by Lia (Lost in a Story). Go check out her blog if you haven’t already! You’re probably wondering how this works […]
Iggy the Hymer motorhome has moved one hour west of Salamanca, and is loitering 30 kilometres from the Portuguese border. Still on the Spanish side, in the little city of Ciudad Rodrigo, where I pause, and cast my mind back to Torquemada. ( N40.597928, W6.521452 ) I am loitering too. Watching the breezy, black rain […]

February 20, 2019. We still have snow on the tops of the hills across the way. So beautiful to look at. You can imagine a huge ruler laid horizontally, with the snow falling above it. Fascinating to see the invisible line where the temperature changes, making it too warm for the snow to remain frozen. […]
Oddly enough, the “aha” moment struck yesterday morning. After hearing the sad news about my favorite fashion designer, Mr. Karl, I thought about fashion and clothing and then….I had an “Aha Moment”! Oh Mr. Karl. I will miss you. And I’ll miss your signature pony tail. I only wish you had worn a man bun! […]
Hello all! This is my first blog post for my class, Fashion Publishing. This is my last semester at Kent State University, and I have definitely come a long way in terms of being familiarized with blogs, as well as the online possibilities that have really mutated to be unavoidable in the fashion industry. The […]
Thanks for joining me! Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton No better place to start climbing a mountain than at the bottom… The key to starting any climb is understanding exactly where you are in relationship to what lies ahead… Understanding this will help you to see that […]
The Hi8 videotape cases seem awkwardly large in my hands. How media has shrunk. Even the miniDV cases stacked next to the Hi8s are passe now. Which is why it has taken me weeks to devise a method for transforming the images from these tapes into digital pixels on my desktop computer. I thank my […]
Beyond the mirror… what do you see?Does it sound “weird” to have meetings on the inside than in the outside?
Monday 18-02-19 The first half of the day was dedicated to exercises centered around experience design. I was running late and missed the first half hour, but joined a group that was working on a design case about wearables. The idea was that each group got a different concept and got to discuss and prototype […]
With every year passing I can see my style and fashion preferences changing. One thing which remained the same is my tendency to overly accessorize, from wearing a statement silver ring on each finger, to my usual attempt of trying to introduce a scarf in any of my outfits. Recently I found myself more interested […]
Underground communities of die-hard fans have transformed ‘Survivor’ from a cultural phenomenon to a rabid cult-like obsession.
I remember the day I decided to join the Labour Party. It had been coming for a while but it was the day I went to Parliament Square to see Nelson Mandela’s statue being unveiled: that was what first convinced me that politics was for me. It was the combination of seeing Nelson Mandela himself […]
The sound of a young girl’s giggle turned into a squeal of joy as it echoed through the courtyard, quiet laughter following her as she ran in erratic circles. Lord and Lady Tewell’s youngest daughter, Rosilynne, was a near constant companion to the servants who worked on the grounds of the estate, growing food and […]
