The daily connection

The most beautiful thing is when you are tired or stressed or bored or a mix of the above or/and something else different (whatever you want to feel you are free to feel it anyway). It`s when the day was plane and uninteresting, and nothing special happened or you got a great new and you are jumping with joy. You could not reach the heart of that person as you have wished, you have tried many times and things do not change, you have meditated too. Days look flat normal or they look quite gorgeous to yourself.  The most beautiful thing is that despite the flatness or the gorgeousness, you know the truth and its aspects. It goes beyond and ahead of all the above descriptions, and justifications. Perhaps it s not a feeling but it s something that you know and doesnt move and you dont lose it even when you feel what you feel.  I think this is when you are connected to the truth.

Donneconlavaligia: Italian passion of the travelling woman

If you cannot read Italian you can always see the pictures and browse a typical blog magazine created by a typical original, artistical and versatile woman mind. The mind belongs to Marina Misiti, cool professional journalist from the Bel Paese with tons of stories and experiences to write and tell you inspired by years of travelling almost everywhere (considering the articles she uploads). So you can also understand why we crossed into this life sporadically enjoying the fun of sharing travelling-materials.

Donneconlavaligia (Womenwithetravelbag) is fascinating because:

  • it straightly and lightly points out the best of slices of places, countries, cities by using pictures and words in a balanced way
  • it summarizes the most important articles written by Marina Misiti in her carrier of journalist and reporter for national well known magazines (many for ladies)
  • it gives fun plus useful tips for different topics concerning the places wher eto go, where to eat, what to dress…
  • it gives tips about travelling and how to travel
  • it is completely open to the internet panorama of other travel/leisure/women topics websites
  • it is creating a net of reportages from other travelling women who understand Italian (and Italian culture in the world i ‘d love to say too) and live abroad
  • it is a great idea of a blog magazine, extremely modern and complete which explores the feminine world from a wonderful perspective

Enjoy here the reportages in Italian by Radha for Donneconlavaligia:

Islam had been quite progressive towards women

girl.jpg

There was no question in my family that my sister and I would be given the same opportunities in my life as my brothers. Nor was there in Islam. We learned at an early age that it was men’s interpretation of our religion that restricted women’s opportunities, not our religion itself. Islam infact had been quite progressive towards women from its inception: the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH)* had forbidden the killing of female infants common among the Arabs of the time, and called for education for women and their right to inherit long before these privileges were granted to them in the West.

Bipi Khadijah, the first to convert to Islam, was a widow who ran her own business, employed the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH)* when he was a young boy and later married him. Umm e-Umara fought alongside the men in the Muslims’early battles against their enemies, her powerful sword-arm saving the life of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH)). Chand Bibi, the female ruler of the South Indian state of Ahmadnagar, defeated the Mogul Emperor Akbar and forced him to enter into a peace treaty with her. Noor-Jehan, the wife of Emperor Jehangir and the virtual ruler of India, was famous for her skill in the field of administration. Muslim history was full of women who had taken a public role and performed every bit as successfully as men. Nothing in Islam discouraged them, or me, from pursuing that course.

Seven Things a Woman should have on her Desk at Office

 A little bottle of pure almond oil: The skin needs to be always nourished and kept elastic. Few drops applied every day will make a big difference in the tone and flexibility, especially around the eyes.

 A small vertical trousse with, incorporated, at least 10 different nuances of lipstick: Lipstick is a must we all know that. Whether strong or light it always gives something beautiful to our face. This handy tool is fast to be used any moment we pop out for a meeting, a lunch.

A medium size bottle of aloe vera gel: During summertime the gel is especially helpful to quickly refresh our skin. It can be used as general cleanser too. The massager can work in combination with it!

A tube of Moov: in case you really want to care about you joints and the back, this is the immediate solution to any symptom of backache or neck ache in the chair.

A small bag of sugar crystal candies: Pure sugar gives energy to a liver stressed out in any moment. If you don’t like candies, you can always drink some water with sugar at room temperature. At least one glass a day gives extremely positive results along the time and they will be noticed!

A handy massage tool: It’s very good to stimulate the blood circulation all over the body. It’s very pleasant to use any moment.

A beautiful and cheap hand made jewelry box: First it gives a touch of decor to the desk, second it’s really useful to keep all you need for the make up and not only.
