Do I like what I see?

Landsat Annual Timelapse 1984-2012
(Click on the link to watch the time lapse)

There are changes made by man on the earth that can be seen from space! How insane is it to think that humans have managed to influence the earth so much that it can be seen million miles away. So it made me wonder if there was a time lapse video of my life, what would it look like? Like deforestation or like Dubai’s palm island? Depending on your view both could be pretty bad, but I personally like the idea of the palm islands.

There is definitely some deforestation in my time lapse, especially in my teenage years. As a young adult I think I managed to start building my own palm islands, changing my approach to life and bettering the influence I have on others. Making an effort to love and care for every person I meet. As with the islands some people appreciate it while others despise it, but that is where self-acceptance comes in. Took me a while, about 26 years, but I finally love who I am and enjoy bettering myself each and everyday.

I will never forget in high-school there was a girl who use to insult and judge me constantly and instead of becoming upset I would ask her why she felt this way about me. She used to tell me to stop questioning and just take it. What she didn’t know was I questioned her so that I could become a better person and learn from her, not to make her like me, but to be a better me. Thing is I don’t care if people don’t like me for who I am, I work on myself so that I can honestly say I am the best me. There will always be people who are negative towards you, but if you know in your heart of hearts that you are not the person they say you are, you can be happy and know that its not your shit. Today I am happy, successful and loved and I still question people who react negatively toward me so that I can learn if I need to work on an aspect in my life or if it’s just that they have never questioned themselves, or taken the time to look at themselves in the mirror and ask “Do I like what I see?”.

It’s been 11months since I last posted…. I am shocked and a little impressed as well. I am living to the fullest where previously I was not. So I considered deleting this blog, but as I opened it today I realized that I should rather use it as inspiration. So I might not post often and it will probably not be about fashion, food and parties but I will use it to tell stories and ground myself after a day or week of giving pieces of myself to the world. This is a new chapter for my blog, let’s call the previous chapter “Searching” and this chapter “Singing all the way on the golden highway”

This is the coolest lamp ever!!

I will own you one day…

It is fittingly named: REVITALIZER

“The Revitalizer is a wax-lamp that re-creates itself  over time, allowing its owner to re-use it and observe the growing-old,dying and rebirth cycle of the lamp. The high voltage bulb inside the lamp melts the wax slowly and after all the wax melts down into the cup, the heat resistance inside the core helps the wax to create a new mould. Once the wax cools down and take its shape, the user can take it out and replace it into the top part of the lamp. The soft lamp shade that revitalizer gives out and various shapes it forms while melting, creates surprise and feeling of relaxation.” Merve Kahraman

My second favourite is

Hybrid no 2

“HYBRID collection was inspired by the mythologies of parahumans. This anthro chair unions with its owner, merging into one.  It is entirely handmade and available in different  leathers.”

Last but not least:

L’ART DE LA SEDUCTION

“The “Seduction Series” is a new experience emphasizing the aromas distinctive to Remy Martin. These unique items of glassware and serving accessories are intended to sensitize people to the expectation of complex olfactory experiences by using specific gestures. The service will be exclusive to private events and parties and it brings a youthful way to celebrate the exceptional aromatic profiles of Remy Martin.” Merve Kahraman

How gorgeous!
