The things you wear in your purse say a lot about your personality.
We can say that inside your purse you have your personal belonging, your "small world inside a purse".
We can also analyze the outside, the bag you are wearing, that can also describe the type of person you are. It can be colorful, plain, black, big, small... Also depending on the occasion...
Could you go out on the street without it? Or you would feel weird and have the feeling that you are missing something important.
Things you can have inside your purse:
Wallet with - Money, Credit Cards, Pictures of close friends/family/ boy/girlfriend...
Bottle of water
For sure, if you check your purse you’ll find lots of things that you really don’t need, and others that are really important for you.
What would you like to find inside your purse and you don’t have?

What is a kiss?
Let’s look in the dictionary:
1. To touch or caress with the lips as an expression of affection, greeting, respect, or amorousness
2. To touch lightly or gently
3. To come into light contact.
4. A small piece of candy, especially of chocolate.
5. to join lips with another person as an act of love or desire
So with those definitions we can see that kisses are really important, they even give the name to a candy.
Have you ever stopped and thought about it… what is a kiss? What importance do you give to kisses? Do give kisses to people you love every day?
Ok, we know there exist a big variety of kisses… Depends on with who you are; A family member, a friend, a lover, a really close friend, somebody you don’t really know, your chief…
We all have been in different situations where we have had to give different kisses showing different feelings to each person.
The ones that I prefer? The kisses you can give to your love! : )
You can say so much with only a kiss, you can feel so much with only a kiss…
When was the last time you kiss somebody? I don’t mean kissing a boy/girlfriend; I mean just giving a kiss to a friend or your brother? Think…
Took Ceramics for four years
During high school he studied sculpting
When he finished his psychotherapist career he found out that he wanted to return to the artistic world he had been in when he was younger.
What fascinates me from Emadi is his Islamic paintings which are divided into themes:
Terrorists and freedom fighters
All those subjects would be seen as normal in the Western Society, for example, some of the Art we have has to do with nude paintings and we find it something pretty and with a big meaning. In the Middle East they would find it offensive and against their culture. That’s why Emadi decides to paint the Islamic women with the burka, on, also for respect to them and the culture, but at the same time in a sensual way.
There are people that find those paintings offensive, and he couldn’t show them in some of the galleries he wanted to… What do you think about it? Is it right that he can’t show his art? I’m not going to give my opinion this time, I’ll let you guys think. It´s a really extended topic to talk about.
Graffiti has existed since ancient times. In modern times, spray paint and markers have become the most commonly used materials. In most countries, spoiling property with graffiti is considered vandalism, which is punished by law. Sometimes graffiti is used to communicate social and political messages. For some people, it is an art form to display in galleries and exhibitions; to others it is just vandalism. There are many different types and styles of graffiti and it is a rapidly evolving art form.
Nowadays Graffiti is a word that we always hear of, we could say that Graffiti is becoming a popular word. We can find people that consider themselves Graffitists and they don’t even know the origin of Graffiti, giving an empty significance to it. People call Graffiti whatever thing they find on the streets painted with spray, or esthetic image. Some of them can be considered Graffiti, with a meaning behind; others are only paintings or murals. Graffiti have a meaning, an evolution and a technique?
In the Graffiti world we find a new language adapted to it. For example, Boming is when a writer paints his/her name all around the city, Crew are the Graffitists that work in group, Going Over is the name given to Graffiti drawn on top of another Graffiti, Piece is the work of the Graffitists, Racking is when someone steals the sprays of another graffitist, Toy is a new Graffitist; the one that doesn’t have experience…
Other people have another point of view, they think Graffiti are not a street art or a way to transmit your inspiration or ideas, they say it’s just a way of vandalism, making the streets look dirty. What if a person makes Graffiti beside your house, or on the shop you own, or beside the school your children go to? It could be something negative for you and the people around you?
So, what we can say about Graffiti? Are they really art, or just a way to get our city dirty? On one side or the other, for sure we will never come to a specific conclusion; people have different ideas about it. What we can say for sure is that Graffiti will continue expanding.
