As from today I am on leave (it’s only a small break) but I am super excited to have late nights and late mornings, and just do whatever I want when I want…
I probably won’t be posting much because I will be with family eating till I burst and enjoying the festivities that this time of the year brings…Of course, if there is something that I HAVE to share, you can trust that I will!
I thought I would wish you all upfront – I hope you have a fun, safe and good food filled festive season, please don’t drink and drive and please enjoy the fun that is giving and opening gifts, spending time with family and loved ones and of course enjoy the food because we all know that our new years resolutions are to hit the gym harder than ever before and live on salad till we have lost 10kgs
It’s been a great year and I just know that 2012 will be even better
One - Bangles, thick ones, thin ones, colourful ones, any one’s really bangle stacking transforms a dull outfit or adds that extra touch to an already good outfit to make it perfect.
2 – Locnville, especially the Running to Midnight CD, which I don’t have YET, but will hopefully have soon.
3 – My Chemical Romance Danger Days CD, this one I have and I love it!
Four – Gold eyeshadow, I’m not the hugest gold fan, I prefer silver but I’m going through a gold phase and love a gold smokey eye, it gives you the ultimate glam look without looking overdone. Also enjoy wearing my gold shadow to work with a bronzey brown lipstick which gives me a more natural look.
In 2005 the President of Belarus forbid Cindy Crawford and Kate Moss from the capital city, reason being a legislation banning the use of foreign models in advertising campaigns was introduced in April of 2005. This caused havoc amongst advertising agencies as they were now forced to use models from the city and had to prove their citizenship.
In 2002 the posters for Opium frangrance by Yves Saint Laurent had to be taken down after being deemed offensive and degrading to women by the Advertising Standard Agency. The posters featured Sophie Dahl lying on her back wearing nothing but gold heels and some jewellery
In 2008 Christian Louboutin designed a pair of pumps in celebration of Barbie’s 50th birthday. The pumps, in the legendary Barbie pantone 219 pink, made their debut at a special runway show during New York Fashion Week. Louboutin said the inspiration came from his ‘girlie side’ that liked Barbie, he also said that “Barbie needs to wear great shoes because every girl needs to wear great shoes”
I haven’t done a lesson learnt post for a while, probably because the things I have learnt recently haven’t been much to write about but disappointment on the other hand is something everyone goes through numerous times during their life span and is also something that actually never gets easier to deal with.
I have a tendency to really set my heart on everything and when it doesn’t happen or happens in a different order then I feel sorry for myself…
Recently I have had many disappointments in all forms such as my studies being delayed, putting my heart and soul into writing a short story for a competition and not making it into the Top 12, etc. Unfortunately all of these have caused a major ball of “life is unfair” in the pit of my stomach but today I dealt with another disappointment but handled it in a different way – which I think will be a positive in my life. Basically instead of getting angry at the God’s, at Mother Nature, at Murphy and whoever else could possibly be involved I decided to Keep calm and carry on, in actual fact when I say carry on I mean carry on with more determination than ever before, with more oomph that I have ever had just because this is enough to frustrate me no end but I don’t want to get upset, I want to fight back and be able to look back and be proud that instead of curling up into a ball for a day or two putting on extra kilos, I accomplished many things with a smile on my face. It’s a cliche I know but hopefully this can help you in your moment of disappointment, instead of asking “why” everytime, just hit back harder than you think you can – you will surprise yourself and eventually it will happen
So the lesson learnt is: Life is a bitch but it’s how you handle her that will determine your path. Cover the disappointment with determination
