I am a mother, daughter, wife and friend. Slightly compulsive about things. I call it stages in life but always trying my best . DIY, shopping , cleaning, gym freak, crazy cuckoo and so on you name it I am and I've been... Here I am opening Pandora's Box and exposing my experiences and trials which are funny sometimes... and sometimes tragicomic ... But all part of who I am and therefore beautiful...

A Star is born

How amazing it is to glimpse the birth of a star, I have always believed that my dad became a star after passing just like in THE LION KING… and if we are all stardust then how beautiful it is to imagine that we become stars again…

Astronomers have witnessed a key stage in the birth of a very heavy star, using two radio telescope views of the process taken 18 years apart.

The young star is 4,200 light-years from Earth and appears to be surrounded by a doughnut-shaped cloud of dust.

That cloud slows down the hot, ionised wind that the star blasts into space, causing it to form an elongated column perpendicular to the dusty ring.

The new results represent “before and after” glimpses of that column forming.

They were captured by the Very Large Array, a battery of 27 antennae in the New Mexico desert, and are published in the journal Science._82092676_after

One to watch

The infant star is about 300 times brighter than the Sun and goes by the catchy name of W75N(B)-VLA2.

Being able to observe its dramatic growing pains in real time is unique, according to Prof Huib van Langevelde from Leiden University in the Netherlands, another of the study’s authors.

“The comparison is remarkable,” said first author Carlos Carrasco-Gonzalez, from the National Autonomous University of Mexico. The compact, rounded wind indicated by data from 1996 transforms – just 18 years later in 2014 – into a “distinctly elongated outflow

The calendula and the spring

Again spring is around the corner and I wanted to share some ideas for the next months of fun, sunshine and beauty…  https://unfocusedsecretbeautee.com/pleber-fever-never-clever/images/

Did you know that marigold flowers are nothing less than Calendula??? So I plant loads every year and dry them along with lavender , rosemary, sage, thyme, you name it and  label it for baths and all sorts of potions and lotions…

Turn and face the strange…chchchanges

I am so scared!!!

I don’t know if you remember the stone cottage I bought at auction and I was euphoric at the time but as reality sets I am so frightened… The plan is to move our home then finish the cottage and sell it again and it’s a great plan. We decided we needed to do things that would take us out of our comfort zone while we are not too old ( and isn’t life all about changes and facing your fears, get out of your comfort zone and live?).

Sometimes I feel like I am carrying the world and balancing between two gigantic buildings in New York on top of a thin line … AHHHAHHH

I have moved countries with a tiny baby for goodness sakes !!! I have moved out of my comfort zone the moment I was born and I have felt like this before, maybe it’s age or maybe it’s because I did my home with love and it’s difficult to just let go… The situation is not bad and I am privileged to own two beautiful homes at the moment, I am a lucky b…ee… if you know what I mean? But that is so scary …

We are all tired and now I am reminded about a nightmare I have sometimes .. We are couples and we have to dance until the last one standing wins but hey?! It’s not a nightmare but reality disguised in caricatures of enhanced realities. And in life, sometimes, while living it you think it’s hard but it does pass and on tomorrow’s yesterday this memory will be a happy memory since I will have faced my fears already and will look for more challenges. The moment we stop challenging our comfort zone is the day we die and so that’s where I am in life at the moment.

Have a nice week and think about it… We build a perfect life and get comfortable, where we go from there it’s what distinguish us as eternal beauties or statues.

PINS&APPSHMACKS

I’ve been busy but not that busy see? What happened to me is a syndrome of modern times… Let’s face it….It would be so much better if passwords and pins were just one… One no one could reach like a piece of your skin or DNA rubbed in to the screen of the computer because I suffer with pins and bobs of securely entering my account.

1- two-step authentication Right in here to get the authentication app you need to have a special password to enter the kingdom of the” I-PET ” and to do that you need you old password and pass code and numbers that have to be printed with mobiles and then …. oops … Lost it….

2- We have tools for 2-step authentication I have so many tools that I never know which is which? They are similar !

3- Lost my mobile-changed my cards. Now step in to my world, to change mobile, cancel the lost one what do you need? You guessed right pin and another pin on top of that and then you need to set up all your pins on the current phone (4 weeks least for that) considering I have a life outside the digital world

4- The next step is to set up your laptop, tablet and co. to the new tool and to all the other tools, and then to do that? You need another tool and gadget!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

7- Oh yeah sure some content for the blog!

8- Who cares ? I am exhausted and have no time for such nonsense!!!!!!!

 

Blade Runner and the power of the phoenix

My secret beautee

 When I was small my daddy used to take me to the cinema, he was quite blind and had to wear contacts to see anything so when in the movies we used to get the front row and at the end of the movie my daddy used to get on his feet and clap his hands. He grew up in Buenos Aires where it’s a costume to clap at the end of a movie or a long haul flight. I remember being really small and going to see Blade Runner, his favourite movie at the time. And by the end of the movie he said to me that it did not matter what was happening in my life, to go to the movies when I needed to switch of. My father used to set the scenes and use all around him as puppets to his own entertainment, not in a…
