Sustainable Fashion

RAFA FARIHAH

The fashion industry is fast paced. The moment one trend is “in”, it is considered dull the very next. Don’t let labels define what looks good on you, what is chic and what is not. You are the master of your own life. Your body is merely a car that you control. Just like you can upgrade your ride with forced induction, a custom paint job, and better brakes, your attire represents you. Be yourself.  Help replenish the Earth of it resources. Reuse. Recycle. Be fashionable. YOUR WAY.

Fit by 50: My journey to lose 50 pounds in 50 weeks by age 50

The Purple Almond

Exactly two weeks ago today, I turned 49 years old. Exactly 50 weeks from now, I’ll turn 50 years old. YIKES! I’m almost 50 years old, and 50 pounds heavier than I’d like to be. So, I decided this is the perfect time to lose the weight, once and for all. I’ve tried before. In fact earlier this year, I took a three month leave of absence from school and blogging to refocus and lose weight. During that time, it was my goal to lose 30 pounds in 3 months. I was an abject failure, as you can see from THIS POST.

“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are” (1).png

However, as I stated in that post, after watching an inspiring conference my son attended, I learned that every successful person fails their way to the top. It was the theme of the event. This was very inspiring for me to hear that the only way…

My new kitten Pocket.

Lucky Otters Haven

I never posted about this, but last week our eleven month old kitten/almost cat Marley got hit by a car.

I wasn’t going to replace him, but my daughter was heartbroken, so we talked about it and decided to get a new kitten.  The new kitty, who she named Pocket, is only about six weeks old (we wouldn’t have taken it so young, but the mother was ill and couldn’t take care of her kittens).   He’s extremely playful  and friendly and already gets along great with BabyCat (pictured with Pocket) and Sheldon, my tuxedo cat.

We are not sure if Pocket is a boy or girl yet, but I’m thinking it’s a boy (it’s hard to tell when they’re this young).   I think this is the cutest picture ever.

My Week 202: I Excel at STEM, An Update

mydangblog

STEM, if you didn’t know this, stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. There’s a lot of concern about getting more girls into STEM fields and rightly so. But recently, I realized that I’ve become very STEM-y as I’ve aged:

Science:

Up until a little while ago, I really struggled with directions. Not directions like “Twist off cap and pour”, but the actual compass directions. If somebody told me to go North, I would just look at them blankly and be like, “Which way am I NOW? Is North left, right, up or down from here?” But then I realized that I shouldn’t take pride in being perpetually one step away from being lost in the woods, so I decided to become better at navigation. It’s easy in Toronto, where Yonge Street acts as a permanent point of reference: towards the lake is South and the other way is North…
