Roost - Roost: A Simple Life

Roost - Roost: A Simple Life

Le voyage créatif This July I met up with Annette Joseph in her amazing apartment in Italy for a little summer get-together with cooking, eating and dancing on the agenda. If you know Annette Joseph from before, then you know she knows how to throw a party and make it all look oh-so effortlessly, she is a food and lifestyle stylist after all with years of experience under the belt for magazines such as Better Homes and Gardens, and is an lifestyle and entertainment expert on the Today show. My lucky part was to be able to watch her work her magic up close and personal, enjoy heartfelt and fun conversation along the way, and play with my camera. It was such a treat to spend time in her company. It´s always so inspiring to have conversations between women, to hear their life wisdom, how they make their relationship work after many years of marriage, to listen to their life stories and to learn from their creative journey, how they began their career to where they are now.

Ask More Questions. - Seven Degrees Communications Seven Degrees Communications October 12th, 2014 by Jessica Levin As a meeting facilitator, I often use a technique called Q-Storming to lead a discussion.

St-Émilion: A Wine Lover’s Paradise « Tracy Chang Beautiful horizons, charming locals and wines of a lifetime. Welcome to St-Émilion. Like I said before, if you’re going to Bordeaux, you must make a trip to St-Émilion. Hop on the train (it’s a one hour ride), hop on a tour bus leaving from the Bordeaux Tourism office or make like me and rent a car for a picturesque drive to nearby St-Émilion. Put on your sunglasses, roll down your window and breathe in the aromas of wine country.

According to The Huffington Post, Gen-Y Is Sad…But Are We? Oh, sure. We’re pretty fond of each other, but the truth is you all are our favorite contributors to The Man Repeller. Really! We’ve formalized that fact with “Let’s Talk About It.” This weekly column is a forum for conversation, communication, and complete distraction from the jobs you’re supposed to be doing right now. So get involved. Social Media Help for the Small Museum Like most small museum directors, I wear many hats. As much as I enjoy facing the diversity of challenges that come my way, I’m not an expert in all areas of museum practices. For that expertise, I often rely on resources that present information in concise summary formats like the AASLH Technical Leaflets and the Small Museum Toolkit .

Two years ago I came across a best practices resource for social media – Heather Mansfield’s Social Media for Social Good: A How-to Guide for Nonprofits. Mansfield provides an integrated approach to networking tools such as websites, blogs, Facebook and Twitter.

Carrot Banana Bread Carrot Banana Bread As a baby I had carotenaemia. Daily, my parents fended off incessant inquiries from prying cashiers and worried neighbors. Every conversation eventually led to a reluctant explanation of why their chubby little baby was orange. I liked carrots – well, carrot baby food. I liked it so much so the elevated levels of carotene in my blood turned my skin a delightfully comedic shade of orange.
