The Difficult Journey of Love Part 2...

Hey guys,

So this is the second episode in my poetry story called The Difficult Journey of Love. This one is the man's reaction to how the woman acts in Shining Rock as I wanted this story to show both sides of love and heartbreak.

So enjoy! 

"The Man With The Broken Heart"

I say that I love you,
And am down on one knee.
Please give me your answer
To my hopeful plea.

You look away,
You turn your back,
You don't give an answer,
I'm taken aback.

You seem to be weighing,
The pros and the cons,
If you don't say a word -
You know I'll be gone,

My heart is broken,
You go to say,
But I don't want to hear it,
So I just walk away...

Luv,

Sunny Sunday musings...

Hey again, 

Two posts in one day! Aren't you guys lucky!

So I went shopping with my friend Lucy today and well I bought a lot! The sun is out at last and it is also warm which helps! I'm in a skirt and a vest top which combines like a dress! Also my shoes from Primark which hurt before are now comfortable! Double success! 

I will of course take you through what I bought. Basically after my wardrobe tidy I am only buying things I need or at least don't already own one similar! 

So I finally got my letterman style jacket from Republic and it's beautiful just the right colour to suit all seasons!
 

I also went Primark mad. This entailed me getting a new long vest top for the summer, a new straw hat that I couldn't resist, a new pair of pumps, a new swimming costume and a pair of simple navy espadrilles! Phew!

 



 
Also I went into Forever 21 and bought a new locket necklace that has the most beautiful owl on it.

 
I also wanted to show my outfit of the day as it is finally sunny. I will show you my necklace and shoes as you can't see them clearly in the photo.

 

Well I am going to carry on watching the Monaco Formula 1 race while the sun shines! Hope you guys have a lovely weekend!

Luv,

Poetry Story: The Difficult Journey of Love...

Hey guys,

I mentioned on Facebook about my poetry story and I have finally finished it so I thought I would post it in instalments. 

The story is told in two perspectives; a man and a woman who we meet at the moment that the man is proposing to the woman. This poem is her trying to work out whether she should say yes.
 
So today is the first of the series enjoy! 

"Shining Rock"
A moment in time.
A rock that shines.
Down on one knee,
You looking up at me.

In that cavern,
The vast expanse,
The sun just visible,
Gone in a glance.

I call to the sky, 
Tell me what to do,
I look to the floor,
And then back to you.

The memories come flooding back,
The games and the scenes, 
fading to black.
I dress up,
They cut me down,
Don't you want someone else around?
Which game will we play today?
You slam the door,
I'll hide away.

I've given you all the chances,
This is your checking move,
Is this battle worth fighting?
Or will I have to lose? 

Will we be Monroe and DiMaggio?
Anthony and Cleopatra? 
Just another tragic love,
That wasn't meant to be...
 
Of will I be the only one, 
The only one for you, 
The shoe that fits,
The house that's right,
Simple, pure and true.

I hope you liked it, next one coming soon...

Luv,

    • If you could kiss anyone famous who would it be? Justin Timberlake or Ryan Gosling! Easy! 
    • What's your favourite flower? Pink or red roses, simple girl really.
    • How many pairs of shoes do you own? Many, is that an answer, well I'd say around 20. 
    • What's your favourite movie quote? "I love the public you, I love the private you and I love the you only I get to see" from the Kate and William movie lol! 
    • If you could be on TV what show would you be in? I'd love to be in Hart of Dixie or Gossip Girl anything like that or maybe the female Mike Ross in Suits.
    • What is on the wall next to you right now? Well one side is a window and the other is a picture of a cat that looks like Woozle. 
    • What is your favourite season? Summer, I hate being cold and it's my birthday season.
    • Who is the most famous person you have ever met? I met Warwick Davis at comic con, that was cool.
    • What is the best place you've ever visited? Tolo, Greece and I loved it so much I'm going back this year.
    • Do you have any pets? If so what are they and what are their names? A Cat called Woozle who has been featured on this blog! 
    • If you could go anywhere in time or space, where would it be or when? I would love to go to the birth of the universe just so I would know how it all began, or maybe I would go to Paris to meet Coco Chanel and Christian Dior.

    You did go to the ball but what did you wear Cinderella?

    Hey guys,

    So this week was the ever famous Met Ball which this year wanted those lucky enough to be given invites to dress "Punk" in an ode to the new exhibition - well this week provided me with the time to reflect on who wore what and my conclusions I will write down now.

    I feel I should start with my idea of punk and the image I get takes the form of my mum when she was younger. Now I have been informed that fish nets and hair dye were the order of the time and that was punk being tame! 

    So how did the social elite dress for it? Well it was more ball less punk, which I don't think is very sporting as its like going to a fancy dress party not in fancy dress! 

    I like top 5's but I have to include in one section two women so I guess it is a top 6 in reality:

    • Julianna Hough looked amazing in a custom Topshop dress and her hair was also bang on punk, I love the ripped bottom to the dress and her edgy heels just make the look! 
    • Next to be bestowed my praise is model of the moment: Cara Delevingne. This lady is fierce and wow, look at her dress. Unlike Sienna Miller who put a studded jacket over a dress, Cara went for it in Burberry and she for me just looks naturally rebellious! 
    • Sarah Jessica Parker, step right up! This was one of the most extravagant outfits of the night, a headpiece from Philip Treacy, the widest Giles Deacon dress and thigh high Louboutins! All the pieces by themselves channel punk, the headpiece was shaped like a mohican and the boots were the shiniest tartan. The wardrobe malfunction made it all the more punk! 
    • So when I was talking to my mum she said that when she used to go clubbing there was always a girl dressed as a bride and I think Rooney Mara got the message! Not only did she wear a white floor length Givenchy gown but she managed to make it cool not creepy. I think she got the ball and the punk elements perfect! 
    • So finally are two women who did things right but the whole look was very wrong: Madonna and Nicole Richie. Both looked strange and kinda scary! However there were some elements of their outfits that were spot on, I mean I loved Nicole's hair and Madonna had elements of genius in the fish nets, the tartan and the pink shoes but she just didn't look good as an outfit. I'm sorry ladies, sack your stylists!!

    So this was really late I'm sorry but my exams will soon be over!

    Luv you all,

    Diamonds are a girl's best friend...

    Hey guys,

    So this is my 100th post! Queue oohs! I haven't been as active as some in my three years of blogging however I have been doing what seems like a thousand years but that will change when I am free over the summer.

    Anyway important anniversaries are always met with some form of gift and I am a magpie for sparkly things so for this landmark post I chose diamonds! There have been many famous "diamond queens" - Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and even the UK's very own Queen Elizabeth II who had her own diamond jubilee last year!

    I dream of owning some of these diamonds in this following top 4 and hey stranger things have happened so I will keep dreaming: 

    1- Tiffany's Jazz Age Glamour collection is a good place to start. This collection was launched just a few weeks ago in accordance with the premiere of Baz Lurhman's movie retelling of the classic novel The Great Gatsby. I picked this floral ring of of a collection of many as I was simply dumbstruck by its beauty (and it's £678,000 price tag)

    2- Mr Harry Winston is famed for his engagement rings and although this is not the one that I myself desire, the famous story of Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf and the intertwined ring makes this all the more special. 


    3- I mentioned her Majesty and so it would be wrong for me not to mention the most prized of all,  the Crown Jewels in this list.



    4- Another diamond genius is Graff, I was introduced to them by a good friend and to say I was dazzled is an understatement, this pink diamond has taken me to a different world - it's stunning. If you get a spare minute check out this link to look at the most famous Graff diamonds - they are wow!
    And well this has been a very pricey post and although this is my diamond post one of my favourite necklaces is this one from Accessorize which isn't a diamond but looks like one and it doesn't come with a six figure price tag.

    Always remember, the most beautiful diamonds come from the roughest uncut rocks, 

    Luv you all,

    Beanies and other things...

    Hey guys,

    This post is driven by my recent trip to Canary Wharf which is one of my favourite places in London as business and culture mix amongst the skyscrapers.

    Recently trends in fashion have taken an urban vibe and cities are proving a massive influence on the art of fashion. Styles of hoodies and cropped tees with logos on have filled the high street, bold leggings have reappeared and high tops with matching beanies and baseball caps.

    At first I never thought this trend would suit me, but there are ways to incorporate it into your own style, I manage it by pairing slouchy jumpers with jeans but maybe I will end up rocking a beanie one day!

    Here is my pic of some of the best:
    

    In this image:
    Generation 98 jumper, Pull and Bear
    Graffiti baseball cap, Topshop
    Genius beanie, Topshop
    Peace and Love leggings, River Island
    New York City crop tee, River Island
    Trainers, Adidas at Schuh
     
    Well I enjoyed making this post for you all,
     
    This is my 99th post so next one will be my centenary so I am planning something exceptional for that but please message me if you want anything special mentioned!
     
    I want to also say thank you to all who look at my blog and read it every time I post, I love you all!
     
    Lots of luv,
