Haute Halloween

wonder | wander | world has blogged about a fave brand of ours in the past, Vintage Black Label.

This Halloween, we're having a blast with their over the top bling binge and bijoux bonanza!

Read their post here.

Halloween Horrors [NOT!] Chic-y crawlies are all the rage at 188 Galerie for the fall season. 

What a hoot to dress up to the nines, make a grand entrance, entrance with a memorable impact, and shine! Shine! SHINE!

Brightly into the night - GO!

Shine your light and be a beacon of delight!

big sky: Georgia O'Keeffe at the Tate Modern

Like the Joseph Cornell retrospective, this turned out to be unexpectedly personal and affecting. Like any dedicated artist, I knew a little about Georgia O'Keeffe. I knew she lived a long time, painted flowers and skulls with great beauty and skill, lived in the American Southwest, and was a feminist icon. Mostly, though, I knew her as my mother's favourite artist.

women warrior queens

In a week celebrating world peace and glorifying women and girls worldwide, Michelle Obama's New Hampshire speech last night was a true clarion call.

Women of the world unite!

Signed, sealed, delivered! Hear this call and take action people!

This is not politics. This is our future.

Decency in our world. Hope for humanity.

In honor of International Translation Day, here are some things you can do to support translation every day.

The celebrations have been promoted by FIT (the International Federation of Translators) ever since it was set up in 1953.
