Women and the Y gene when it comes to Science, Math and Technology

Science, Math and Technology is the FUTURE. Women make up less than 8% of those in the Technological development of these fields. How do we make the BIG idea of technology interesting and chic to women. Innovate and foster creativity for a woman to become a better leaders and become role models for other women. How not to let the discouraging missteps that are bound to happen stop you from achieving your goals. I believe we need to make science, math and technology readily available to young girls and women. Foster that sense that science is a feminine virtue and math is a sense of something attainable and can be mastered. I am always looking for ways to foster my imaginative and creative endeavors. I love Sci-fi and think that in another life I would have been a fabulous Engineer or maybe in my second career I will start a internet company...you never know.

SERENITY NOW


Do you ever get so busy, that the day just seems to pass by, as if you only just took a breath? I have had that kind of couple of weeks since the last blog. So in order for me to slow down or as one would say "smell the roses" I have committed myself to daily walks to enjoy simple moments rain or shine. Rain at this particular moment in SF. However, walking in the rain is enjoyable if you are prepared...I feel a tip coming: as long as you are somewhat prepared or not. Necessities are as following: a smile(who wants to walk around with a frown), good pair of Wellies (Hunter by choice), a warm jacket(that dries easily) and a good umbrella that repels rain to the best of its ability. Above all else an attitude that is receptive and open to enjoy the MOMENT! These moments of self reflection is needed for ones sanity and boy do I need a bit of Serenity, Serenity NOW!

Searching for the perfect pair of Biker Boots...

I am a bargain hunter for a number of things but there are some items that require me to splurge here and there. However, upon my searching the internet for a pair of biker boots that are stylish but not too manly and still have a feminine quality about them has come to a most unlikely place. TARGET!! Yes, to my surprise I have found the most stylish biker boot that are "Genuine Leather" for under $50 dollars. I ordered them immediately and they have finally arrived and I tried them on and to my surprise they are PERFECT!! I love it when a surprise purchase turns out the be the buy of the month. Who says you have to spend your hard earned money on items that try their best to SHOCK your pocket book, when they can be found for a more reasonable price it just requires a bit of creative thinking and searching skills galore. This Month's major score was at TARGET...

On occasions we all need to treat our bodies like a temple, one to be adorned and worshiped. I did that today by having a wonderful lunch time massage and stretch. These types of treatments are a necessity when you live in an urban environment and/or live a very busy lifestyle of any kind. I find myself all over this city from one event to another and all the while trying to remain Fabulously Stylish and Energized. So, if you have the means to take a break locate a great massage near by and indulge in a little afternoon delight. Here are a number of massage studios a few local and nationwide.
