STYLO TABLE / SAYS WHO

A feminine, multifunctional table for the modern woman. With its mirror, the external tray and two delicious drawers STYLO is the ideal make-up table. There is room for all your makeup and all your jewelry. The mirror can also be removed, and then can be used as a desk.

Once you recieve this you must share 5 random facts about yourself and then pass it on to 10 of your favourite followers

1. I am obsessed with printables at the moment. 
2. I work in an art library ( I am sitting next to Mollie who is a Fibers Major)
3. Cheesy romances, comedies and action genres always brighten my day. (that’s why animes work well for me)
4. Dancing to music in the morning is the only way I can really wake up.
5. I do not like the tapioca bubbles in bubble tea. I like mango stars, coconut jelly, or nothing but the drink itself. The bubbles are oddly chewy for a drink in my opinion.

(Thinking about personal facts is really hard to do. Thank goodness I am one of your favourite followers.)

Cambrian Wave, kinetic sculpture by Reuben Margolin:

"When I first turned on the Cambrian Wave I was reminded of the wiggly creatures found in the Burgess Shale. These creatures, which flourished in the geologic time known as the Cambrian Period, had so many arms and legs that even their fossils seem to have movement. The lower part of the sculpture is made of birch, maple and basswood. Embedded pulleys add together the motion originating in the three top rings. A steel frame shaped like a bow holds the rings and tensions a white comb that separates the weave from the wave. The thimble in the central ring is filled with pulleys and so behaves like a fool’s tackle, doubling the motion in the single wavelength that acts over the entire sculpture. The little circles drive the edge riffles with the yellow dots. Each ring has its own motor, and because these motors all go different speeds, the sculpture is pretty much non-repeating."

I feel as if i am in an eternal state of procrastination. That’s going to have to change today.

The School of Life   |   http://theschooloflife.com/shop

The School of Life is devoted to developing emotional intelligence through the help of culture. We address such issues as how to find fulfilling work, how to master the art of relationships, how to understand one’s past, how to achieve calm and how better to understand, and where necessary change, the world.

The School of Life is a place to step back and think intelligently about central emotional concerns. You will never be cornered by dogma, but we will direct you towards a variety of ideas from the humanities – from philosophy to literature, psychology to the visual arts – ideas that will exercise, stimulate and expand your mind. You will meet other curious, sociable and open-minded people in an atmosphere of exploration and enjoyment.
