"Couldn't Get Michael Kors if you was F**king Michael Kors"

I've had my eye on a few Michael Kors goodies of late, and I blame my addiction to Pinterest. Like it's not enough that I generally just want to get my hands on anything fashionable, now I have Pinterest to make that ten times worse. So naturally because not everyone can gets what they wants, I have added the Michael Kors handbag collection to my wish list, for you kind souls out there *wink wink, nudge nudge*.


I'm sure most of us all know how hard it is to find a fashionable bag at a reasonable price, which is one of the reasons I have fallen in love with Michael Kors products, because even though they are pricey, they remain fairly affordable.

I tell you why in a second.

I have just spent most of my time assuming that this sort of luxury was 'above my pay grade' {I have always wanted to say that} and not something that I should be even looking twice at, so when Nicki Minaj sang "Couldn't get Michael Kors if you was f**king Michael Kors" I felt like I had to pay attention. But boy was I almost kind of sort of wrong, because yes their bags cost between 10, 000 to 7,000 South African Rands, and yes this is generally the price range you need to be prepared to see when you Google 'how much is a Michael  Kors bag' and then quickly Google after that 'No, how much is it really'...
but I realised that Michael Kors can still come through for a girl on a budgetbecause if between all that good-looking-I-can't-afford-these-kind-of-bags-stuff you are still able to find one that costs you about R 1,000 then hey, that is reasonably pricey right?
It is MK after all.






Either way, you could totally get it, and I know I can so get it. In fact we all can get it, and we all should..............

Dinner Party Guests: Marilyn Monroe & Audrey Hepburn

Ever think of who {dead or alive} you would invite to a dinner party? I do, all the time, and even though my list changes changes quite often, almost all the time Marilyn and/or Audrey make the cut.
My mild obsession with Marilyn Monroe started after I watched My Week with Marilyn. Such a beautiful movie, and naturally {because I felt she was a very close friend of mine} I morphed into a mini detective trying to solve the age old mystery of her death. Audrey on the other hand, after finally watching Breakfast at Tiffany's {which I made a promise to do here} I finally got what all the fuss was about. I get that it was a movie, and none of it was real, but I just imagined myself hanging out with the lady on the screen and having an absolute good time.

Regardless, there is a reason why we as women use many of the things Marilyn and Audrey said then to apply to our lives now, because despite being popular for their acting, singing, fashion and style these women inspire young girls and women, in love, friendship, life, and womanhood.
I can definitely raise my hand to testify to this. I have caught myself a time or two relating to something they have said, sticking by it, and trying to apply it to my life, I mean no wonder I want to have them at my dinner party. What other secrets to life are they holding back?

Here are some of my favourites.

Marilyn Monroe

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they are right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together" 

"We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets." 

"Just because you fail once, it doesn't mean you are going to fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on and always always always believe in yourself, because if you don't then who will? So keep your head high, your chin up and most importantly, keep smiling because life is beautiful and there is so much to smile about" 

"It's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring" 

"For those who are poor in happiness, each time is a first time, happiness never becomes a habit." 

"I do not stop when I am tired, I stop when I am done..." 

Audrey Hepburn 

"I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like the most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person." 

"You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him"

"As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping  others." 

"I decided very early on, just accept life unconditionally; I have never expected it to do anything special, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened without my ever seeking it" 

"I don't take my life seriously, but I do take what I do - in my life - seriously"

I just love these ladies and what they stand for, they inspire {at least me} to go for what I want, be confident and happy as a woman.

Who would you invite to a dinner party?
