Fashion is a lifestyle

Monday = kill joy.

I don't know about you, but I'm sure I don't speak for myself when I say the weekend should have more days. You know, maybe a "funday" or a "restday" but whatever the case, it's pretty unfair that Monday is so far away from Friday but Friday is so close to Monday. I'm hardly able to say "lets get this party started" before my alarm starts ringing for 8 thirty on Monday.

*sigh* any way

Like any girl, I love fashion, and according to me fashion is more than just the clothes you wear. It's a lifestyle.

"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." Coco Chanel

Could not have said it any better.

This year I have not featured in many of the events that go on at my University, (lets just call it old age *giggles*) but I admit I got dolled up for the fashion show that was held this Saturday! what can I say, "you are who you wear its true, a girls just as hot as the shoes she choose" (I cant believe I just quoted Lady Gaga lyrics)
Any way I have to admit that sometimes I dream that if I'm not behind the scenes of a fashion show doing the interviewing and the reporting, then I would be right alongside Naomi Campbell, Heidi Klum and whats that lady's name...... oh yea.... Giselle Bundchen.

These are just dreams among so many others I have that I hope will all come true. Aim for the moon you might land on a star, or wait....... is it the other way around? oh well, you get the point. DREAM BIG!

Here are a one or two photos of my night!

different is good, this world has too much of the same

I don't know about you, but I have certain places in my room where I find it comfortable to think, and these are the places I uhmm get most of my great ideas.
Any way the point is when I was in one of these "said" places, I started thinking (duh) about the concept of individuality. Now wait, hold on, before you think this sounds like a school assignment, It's not.

I read somewhere that the only way to express individuality is by being exactly like someone else who is expressing their individuality.

Okay, let me just add that fundamentally, we are all the same, but because I don't see this world as just black and white, yes and no,or right and wrong, I think that when that sentence, i.e "the only way to express individuality is by being exactly like someone else who is expressing their individuality" is put like that, it does ring some truth to it. In some twisted kind of way people do tend to express their individuality................ by being exactly like someone else. Blame it TV shows or the things we read in magazines but whatever it is, the idea of the individual is being lost somewhere between what Blair Waldorf is wearing, how Paris Hilton speaks, and what Lindsay Lohan weighs. #imjustsaying

While we are all caught up being the same, people forget that different is good too. Whats wrong with cherishing your individuality? After all we are all unique and that's what makes life interesting. Imagine a world where everyone is the same? honestly, where is the fun in that? This world already has too much of the same.

Funny story, people look at people who are different as if there is something wrong with them. well then, that's our first problem I guess, *sigh* People don't want to be different.

"Normal is the absence of individuality"

doughnut hole

I've been searching my room for the past hour, looking for the note that inspiration might have left behind saying they have stepped out for a bit, and will be back as soon as possible.

I promised myself that this time would be different, I actually think I might have had a dream about it. Now that I think about it, yup it was definitely a dream. When I pressed the create blog button, I had tonnes of ideas swarming in my head, you could say I had a months worth of ideas to blog about. BUT, this is me now................................................... (flat line) and THATS when I realize I was dreaming, I don't have an interesting story about what I ate today, or who is dating who in hollywood, or maybe even fashion do's and dont's.... as a matter of fact today what I do have is doughnut hole: Zero, Zilch, Nada.

But because I choose not to accept defeat, and maybe give inspiration a little more time to come back, I've decided to fill my page with nothing.... literally. So here is a poem I came across that speaks volumes about my debacle.

A poem about nothing
Just words to fill an empty page
No hidden meanings
No flowing words
Or rhyming sounds
Nothing to call it special
A poem doesn't have to mean something
After all it is only words.

I'm a girl: I can be complicated without reason or explanation

Yet again we have another vampire series, as if True Blood, Vampire Diaries and Twilight weren't enough (not that I am complaining about Edward Cullen and the Salvatore brothers) But anyhoo this new series is called "The Gates" and it comes with the whole package, vampires, witches werewolves you name it, oh and lets not forget that "innocent civilian" that wants to save the community form bad things.
I'm not sure if I am warming up to it yet but I came across a line that really stuck with me "I'm a girl; I can be complicated without reason or explanation"
I agree!
Reasons: I'm a girl, I can be complicated, and more often than not I have no reason and explanation for it. This is not to say girls are allowed to do what they want when they want and get away with it, its more like we don't really know what we want. Ok, I take that back.... we know EXACTLY what we want, the problem is what we want changes so often that what we want today is not necessarily what we will want tomorrow.

Take for example a good friend of mine was Anti- Blackberry to the bone and Pro HTC and touch screen, today.......... she is a proud owner of a Blackberry Curve. Ask her to explain this sudden change of heart, the best answer you may get is "I like the buttons"

But what can I say, so what if girls are complicated, the best way i can describe it as is " the complexity of simplicity" we are complex yes, but at the same time more simpler than you can imagine.

When i hear "KLS" I immediately think of the fabulous Kimora Lee Simmons, and in my opinion who doesn't. If its not for her sparkling personality, jaw dropping fashion label and absotively posolutely adorable children then its definitely for her hard work.
And even though I'm moving slightly off track (only slightly) I actually want to take a minute to talk about this phenomenal woman.
I'm a twitter addict, I'm on there 24/7 365 like its running out of fashion, but what can I say I love it.(at the risk of sounding like a stalker) the one thing I really like about it is that you can keep up to date with your favorite celebrities, like KIMORA LEE SIMMONS! And okay i get it, there is one thing about following celebrities just to stalk their lives but its another thing actually interacting with them, and those of you who follow Mrs Simmons know that she is number one at interacting with her fans and its just absolutely amazing when that happens (not that it has happened to me *sigh*) BUT I know a luck lady (RuTendoDenise) that got tweeted by her and in two words: heart attack. I will never forget what she said "ZIMBAWEEE! STAND UP!". Now I'm from Zimbabwe so you must know how exciting it must have been for me to read that. I was literally "tweetless..."
So before I ramble on, I just thought I had to share this because like I said it is one of the many joys of twitter having someone you love and adore take the time to tweet you back. So i say KIMORA LEE SIMMONS! STAND UP!

So lets cross over, back to KLS..!

Today this does not mean Kimora Lee Simmons but rather "Keep Life Simple"
Life as we know it can be a rather complicated process, and over the past few days I have allowed this "complication" to get the best of me.... I mean check it, if we look at the word "life" we can see that its full of ifs and lies (and let me remind you "ifs" never travel alone, be sure to look out for its cousins buts and maybes) but if you put it altogether that's life. pretty much nothing you can do about it.... except....... KLS, keep it simple.
I actually told myself its impossible to fight fire with fire, and in that regard its impossible to fight complication with complication. So many people say if life throws u lemons make lemonade, or drink tequilla and I say YES to that, but one of my favorites and ones that I aim to live by is if life throws you lemons make grape juice and leave people wondering how you did that.
I definitely know how I can make grape juice out of family, my friends, and myself. Nothing is better than having an amazing support group behind you and YOU giving them reason to be amazing.

Love and Light

Colour me red

I'm that type of girl that like to keep things simple, from the way I live my life, to the relationships I have and even to the clothes that I wear. You can say I live by the saying "less is more", BUT as a new years resolution i decided to try new things, and to be honest I haven't gone that far with in that department, unless you count going to a strip club and attempting a long distance relationship, but all this changed when I went shopping with a friend for a birthday present and came out of the mall with red lipstick.
Now this might sound crazy, red lipstick? really? who doesn't have lipstick?
ummmmm...... me. I never wanted to wear lipstick in my life, lip gloss is as far as I thought it would ever go for me. I always saw lipstick as something for "grown women".

Any way this is how i really feel about my new transformation....

................ I like it....... :)))))))
