Enjoy this new stage !

HI SISTERS ! Since some days ago, maybe you realized a short text script below the header image of this site that says: “& Women’s World“. Also there is a bit change in colour, now more violet o purple.

I never knew what’s the reason, but 90% of followers on this blog are women. So my gratitude through this blog should focus to you.

Likely your interest in makeup and clothes, but mainly your passion for reading, traveling, for visit museums, etc, should be the main reasons of your leading and protagonism in following matters of Art. In your lives, you often are engaged or simply worried about colours, lines and shapes. Much more than men, that seem too busy with sports or motor subjects and they seem abandon the interest and their commanding role after a lot of centuries with unjust advantages.

Hereinafter among the usual posts dedicated to the topics for the sketches or drawings in this blog, you also will could find some new stuff that I hope you will like. Mainly because you can collaborate with your personal contributions or suggestions. Here is the email address:

As ever I’m so thankful for your loyalty and enjoy !

The Ravenous Reader's Thoughts

images (1)4/5 stars!

Last week was a terrible time for me and my family because my dad suffered from a mild stroke/heart attack and was confined at the hospital for five days. For the first two days, he was confused and disoriented. It broke my heart to see him like that because he has always been so active and so animated despite being already 70 years of age. I got my passion for reading from him and you’ll probably won’t believe me but I did convince him to read Hunger Games, Divergent and the likes. He’s home now and he’s recovering very well. Why I had to share this is because during the days I didn’t know what to do, the magic of reading once again worked its miracles on me. This particular book kept me distracted from thinking too much or crying too much and perhaps for that alone, this…

What It Means To Be Quietly Confident

Katie Kuo

tumblr_ncrzsvHAz41qbilh4o2_1280.jpgThere’s a misconception that confidence means being an extrovert, being loud, openly expressive and outgoing. There is this image of someone who is likable, energetic and gets a long with everyone. However, confidence means having faith in yourself or someone else. It’s the state of feeling certain about the truth of something. There is this idea that only extroverts can be truly confident, yet there are many misconceptions about introverts that can cause this thought. Confidence is something you create within yourself, it’s not something you’re born with.

I found this answer from Quora, and appreciate it so much. As an introvert, I’ve grown up being told (even til today), that I need to be more confident. As someone who is comfortable in their own skin, there’s often a mistake of equating confidence with being loud. The words “Nothing is ever as it seems, especially when it comes to people,”…
