My TED Indulgence Today!

Title Posted by Deborah (at) dvdInteriorDesign Posted in Interior Design, Interior Design business, Psychology

My TED indulgence: TED speakers are inspiring others with their thoughts and ideas. Today I took a moment to learn more about Social Science with Amy Cuddy as she shares her life studies and knowledge about non-verbal language and how 2 minutes can change your life.






I am always interested in what other people's body language is telling me.  I must also ask myself, what am I telling others about me? How to show power when you feel powerless? Can you fake it till you make?  Here I learned about how if you change your non-verbals and you can change your brain! Thank you, Amy Cuddy, for sharing.

What are some of your favorite TED Talks?  I am always interested in a recommendation from someone who has found an article or clip inspirational  and life changing. I often visit TED.com and I don't know where to start.  I would love some recommendations and lift each other up.  Share in the comments section if you have some favorites.

Pokemon Go: The Secret To Catching 'Em All Revealed 

I think it’s safe to say that the Pok√©mon Go craze has pretty much taken over our lives. Even if you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon, you’re at least very aware of, and possibly annoyed by its existence. People from different generations and walks of life are all participating in this one collective experience.

Pokemon Go is now the biggest mobile game app in history. I love that it is interactive for groups and individuals alike. It brings people together. I am having some friend over for dinner.  After a little food and beverage consumption,  we are going to let the fun begin as we play together and find the little buggers and (try to) impress our kids with our team. #boomersmarts. 

Have you played yet?  Do you have any tips for our dinner party? Hurry up before the Ads start.  If you are a store, this could be a game changer for brick and mortar to have your store featured on the app for people playing in your area!  Inquiring Minds Must Know.

LuxeBloggers Event Fairfield and Westchester Blogger Meetup

Juliska Sea Life LuxeBloggers
Last week Jessica and had the pleasure of hosting a local blogger event at Juliska, in Stamford, CT. I've been a longtime fan of Juliska since spotting them on the pages of my favorite mail order catalog many moons ago. Lucky for us they now have a beautiful 10,00 square foot retail showroom in our neighborhood, equipped with a coffee shop and lunch menu. I have a long wish list of table settings and serving pieces that I would like to add to my collection, so it was fun to preview all the new arrivals and additional products in person. This is a brand that celebrates artful and happy gatherings with unique handcrafted items to enhance any event. And their store is truly a visual delight of table settings, cookbooks, jewelry, gifts and more under one roof!
