After His Wife Left Him With Nothing But Their Dog, This Artist Got Creative

Jul 14, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

They say your thirtieth birthday is one of those “milestone” dates, and for Rafael Mantesso, that couldn’t have been more true — for reasons you wouldn’t expect.

His wife left him. She took their cookware, their furniture, their photos, and their decorations. She left Rafael alone in an empty, all-white apartment.

The only thing she didn’t take was their bull terrier, whom she’d named after her favorite shoe designer: Jimmy Choo.

Happy Birthday!

But instead of dooming and glooming, Mantesso got creative.

Getting a tattoo is a big commitment. For the most part, it’s putting something on to your body that will be there forever — barring any surgery to remove the inked-on regret.

And for some people with no commitment issues, it’s also a chance to have a little bit of fun and play on words while they play on their skin.

The results? Rather ink-redible. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

This Amazing Village Offers a Normal Life for Dementia Patients

Jul 10, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

If you’ve ever cared for a loved one suffering from dementia, you know the heartbreak as you watch them go from confusion to frustration to acceptance — all while experiencing those same emotions in a different context yourself.

Dementia and Alzheimer’s are on the rise with senior citizens all over the world, and usually the common solution is to put these elderly people in a home with highly regulated rules and restrictions.

And while it’s imperative that they’re placed in a safe and caring environment, it can still place a lot of stress and tension on the family, staff, and patients.

But in the small town of Weesp in Holland, the community of De Hogeweyk is looking to change the norm by doing something amazing — creating a dementia-focused living center closed off from the rest of the city that’s designed specifically for people suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s.
