My personal ode to flower power

Remember my post about trademarks? Everyone has their own trademarks, even when you’re not aware of them. Your trademarks are not only limited to appearance. How you behave, how you think…personality is key. However, today I am talking about personal trademarks in appearance. One of my own appearance trademarks to me more specific. Oriental Spice Red Lips and some Chocolate Hairflowers pretty much sums it up. I will not talk about the red lip(stick) today, maybe another time. I do want to talk to you about flowers. I wear them a lot and in every season.

And the award for the Best Era goes to…

 

For some things one blogpost just isn’t enough. A while ago I explained to you where my vintage fascination came from. One fine day in my personal history (2 weeks ago), I was half-awake and scrolling through my facebook timeline with one eye open. (People who are smiling right now will understand). That morning, one picture about the 1950s gave me a wake-up call. The picture was taken from and old movie scene and had a caption like: “Why didn’t I grew up in the 1950s”. The discussion below the picture was actually quite interesting. Some people resented the statement and pointed out issues like racism, discrimination and the disadvantaged position of women. Although I obviously know how much these issues (unfortunately) were alive and kicking back in the day, I don’t agree with the comments. But…it got me thinking and led to this sequel of the origin of my vintage fascination v.s. the present.

The New Year’s Resolutions phenomenon

December 28, 2012 | Inspirational column | 0 comments

New Year’s Resolutions: the phenomenon that occurs when the end of a year is approaching and people suddenly get in the “change-mood”. Millions of resolutions will be made. This mood (and the resolutions) will disappear as fast as it came, after the first month of the new year.
As you can probably guess, I’m more the anti-New Year’s Resolution type. I don’t believe people will suddenly make the changes which they’ve put on a list at the end of a year. That’s also the reason why New Year’s Resolutions are actually not pursued after January and completely forgotten in March. Those resolutions are mostly standard things like:
– a more healthy lifestyle
– find a new great job
– save money
– stay in touch with family and friends
…etcetera.
