Dove Campaign for Real Beauty

Yesterday I went to a casting to be in a Dove commercial. I’d received the invite a few weeks earlier and totally ignored. Then last week, I got another invite. And since I was going to be in the city on the date of the casting, decided to attend. I figured, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Surprisingly, there weren’t that many other women there. And the audition didn’t take all that long — I just had to pose for a few pictures. So will I get picked for the all expense paid plus fees shoot mid June in Prague? Well while […]

Blog Facelift

For a while now, I’ve been thinking about giving Barzey.com a facelift and last weekend, I finally got around to it. Not only did I change the theme, but I also migrated from Movable Type to WordPress platform. This wasn’t an easy decision as I really liked Movable Type. It’s a well built product with lots of features and plugins. However, it’s not as user friendly as WordPress. I know this as I have implemented WordPress blogs for a number of my marketing consultancy clients. I didn’t recommend Movable Type as I knew it would be too complicated for them […]

Climbing Ben Nevis

With God’s help, next Saturday I will be successful in my attempt to summit Ben Nevis the highest mountain in Scotland and really the entire British Isles. I’m nervous but extremely excited. Particularly as after last year’s summit of Snowdon the highest mountain in Wales, I wanted to climb even further heights. With elevation of 4,409 feet, this definitely is higher plus weather condition will be more extreme. We will most likely encounter rain, gail force winds and snow near the top. Thankfully, I already own gear to make the climb comfortable so definitely looking forward to heading on out […]

Caine’s Arcade

This video about a 9 year old boy who created a complete arcade from cardboard boxes is a reminder to self to better use the resources around me. And so instead of thinking, if only I had XYZ, I need to look closer at what I have and think of how they can be used differently. As this video demonstrates, anything is possible will a bit of imagination. For more information about Caine’s Arcade, you can visit his Internet site. No related posts.

Inspiration

Life is a roller coaster. On the personal as well as professional front, there are ups and then there are downs. During the down periods, I often spend time reflecting but also seeking inspiration from people I admire. One such person is Nelson Mandela. To think how he suffered such hardship for near 30 years as a prisoner in Robben Island but yet came out and was so gracious and lived an even more purposeful life. Truly inspiring and a reminder to self that I need to keep pressing ahead and even step up my game. I am capable of […]
