Werbung/Today we celebrated the Persian Wedding ceremony from my Sister🤵Heute haben wir die Verlobung meiner Schwester gefeiert.
.Sofreh Aghd (table of wedding)
The sofreh aghd is a traditional wedding ceremony spread where legal marriage and ceremonial tradition is exchanged. The ceremonial tradition has been practiced for thousands of years, and sofreh aghd spread is customary at Persian weddings. Like most ethnicies, Iranians have diverse religious backgrounds and the sofreh aghd is a chosen cultural ceremony commonly practiced regardless of faith. There are many symbolic items which make up the sofreh aghd spread, all of which represent an element of the couple's new life together. The word “sofreh” means “spread” and “aghd” means “ceremony."
While most aim to keep the traditional elements of the sofreh design, each sofreh is unique and is designed around the bride and groom's style. Every sofreh aghd design has traditional must-haves; however, based on the taste and budget of the couple, some sofreh designs are more elaborate and intricate than others, while others are more simple and understated.
Below is a visual guideline and list of some of the traditional items that make up the sofreh aghd:
|| Ayeneh (Mirror) || Represents bringing light and brightness into the future for the married couple. Traditionally, the couple look into the mirror together.
|| Shamdoon (Candles/candelabras) || Symbolize energy and clarity in the couple's life together.
|| Khoncheh (Assortment of seven symbolic herbs and spices) || An assortment of herbs and spices are placed on the spread to guard against the evil eye. The seven herbs and spices include: poppy seeds “khash-khaash”, wild rice “berenj”, angelica “sabzi khoshk”, salt “namak”, nigella seeds “raziyaneh”, black tea “

So I feel like for the last few weeks all I have seen about on social media is Game Of Thrones. And this may be unpopular but I’ve never seen it 🙈Am I missing out?!
Reminiscing to when my little squish was still squishy 😭😍🧡 those first few weeks with a newborn are so challenging but I swear those are some of my favorite times with my babies 😭 really missing all those baby snuggles about now. @limitlessfishing
let’s have another baby? JUST KIDDING 😂😘
Here are just a few ways we use The Doc here at RADIUS. 🌟😁 How do you Doc? 🤩 #adocforeveything

♥ LIFT WHERE WE STAND ♥ I feel SO incredibly blessed & lucky that we have always had enough for our needs. I can’t imagine how incredibly hard it would be to not have enough food on the table. We see so many huge delicious meals posted on social media and It absolutely broke my heart when I saw the @catellipasta ”minimalist plate” and saw the portion size that more than 1/3 of Canadians have to live off of.... mostly being children and youth 😞 💔 ————————————————————— ☞︎ One-in-five (22%) Canadians have turned to a food bank at least once in their life.
☞︎ One-in-five Canadians (20%) have skipped a meal because they couldn’t afford to buy anything.
☞︎ Almost one-third (32%) millenials have skipped a meal due to financial woes.
☞︎ Half (50%) of Canadians turn to convenient, less healthy foods when eating alone.
☞︎ More than one-quarter (27%) of Canadians agree that social media would make them feel insecure about not having the money to feed themselves if they go to a food bank.
"When we seek to serve others, we are motivated not by selfishness but by charity — we lift where we stand.”
SO, I am going to encourage us all to lift where we stand to help those around us. It can be as simple as buying a package of Catelli pasta- @catellipasta will then donate a serving to someone in need for every package purchased. They are trying to reach a goal of 1,000,000 servings!🙌🏼🙌🏼

House of Mars is pretty much a one woman army and I, @marijana929
, make the clothes. What I do also falls into slow fashion and makers movement, I make things with the thought you plan to own it for the rest of your life. Which is generally not how the more conversational pieces I make, tend to be made. House of Mars is for those who know who they are and celebrate it. For the people who always need that perfect accessory or garment in their closet for a last minute thing. For those who want something creative, there are both ready to wear pieces coming from my imagination or the opportunity to do something custom in my NYC studio. Either way I'm thrilled to provide these moments of wearable art for my patrons and pictures of them wearing my work really brightens my day! For this Fashion Revolution week it's important for people to know if you don't like something you can change it. If you want people being treated well or items made with certain materials, shop for items that meet your criteria. The revolution starts with you. And on that note I'm still running a 15% discount on all online purchases over $40 for the this week when you use " WELCOME ". Creep on! 🖤 Marijana

A fishing village in Ha Long bay. What an amazing & different way of life to the hustle & bustle we have in Sydney!
I am an ordinary person, yet i have made the extraordinary decision that has led me to leading an extraordinary life.
At the young age of 13 I decided my life wasn’t going to be boring or what I considered ordinary so I did something most 13 year old girls weren’t doing at the time and started paying attention to what my mom was actually doing.
When we hear things like “Your kids are watching so be the example!” Guys, my mom lived and rocked that saying like a #boss
As a young child, watching her belief and her faith to create a life, and a business for herself that allowed her to be home with us kids, help others, and provide a good living for us, was anything but extraordinary.
I didn’t see it at the time...yet, she paved the way and painted a picture of what going after your dreams and succeeding looks like.
Guys, our kids are watching us.
And what we show them will be the norm for them.
So when my daughter sees me working late into the night, and up early to work more, she will know what hard work looks like.
When she sees me working on my dreams, she will know how to work on hers.
When she sees me fall and get back up. She will know how to get back back up and up again, every time she falls.
When she knows I’m afraid and fearful to do something and I do it anyway, she too will know how to let faith win over fear and do the things that are hard.
When she sees me tired and not wanting to run, or workout, and I do it anyway. She too will do the things she doesn’t want to do because it’s important.
Let’s show our kids what FAITH over FEAR looks likes. 🙌🏼 In honor of #mothersday
(early) THANK YOU @edelight
for being such s great example. 🙏🏼💓 I love you. ❤️
Maybe you don’t want script in your primary logo but you still like the personality it brings with it? That’s what submarks, alt logos, and additional brand elements are for.
Custom signatures are a great brand detail for when you don’t want to stick your logo on something but you still want to put your name on it.
“Ok cool, G, I get that in theory...but what does that really mean? When would I actually use it?”
Good Qs. So glad you asked. I like to use these sorts of details on/in items that are already branded with your logo. I hate redundancy and slapping people over the face with logologologo. You don’t want your website or marketing materials to feel like a car product placement in a movie. -
Signature graphics are great for, well, signatures. If there’s a place where you break the fourth wall and speak directly to a [potential/current/former] client, use it there. The welcome letter in your client welcome packet or pricing guide. After your bio blurb on your about page (if you write in first person). On the back of envelopes you use to send thank you cards as a cool visual detail.
The possibilities are not endless, but where the signature fits, it fits well. And that’s the point. It’s specific. It’s intentional.
Hustlin away in the studio on items for both of my markets next week! Next weekend I will be set up at @chspourhouse
on Saturday night (5/4) and @theroyalamerican
on Sunday 5/5. Last week you all requested more stackable rings, some big bold pieces and silver earrings. Anything else you’d like to see at a market or in the shop soon? Let me know below! // photo by @nickie_stone
and yes those are all FIRE OPALS!
