Family, Nothing can beat it.

I’m lucky to have the family I have.

 

Beautiful. Complicated. Inspiring.

My family are the most important people to me, every day they inspire me.

 

The best way I can describe my dad would be like Liam Neeson in ‘taken’. He is clever, he is persistent and he is strong. I never doubt anything when my father is next to me. No one could make me feel as safe as what he can.

 

My mother on the other hand is completely the opposite.

She is nurturing, strong-willed and wears her heart on her sleeve. She is absolutely amazing and the strength she has shown in her weakest moments only make me more proud of her. I would describe my mother as Catherine Diaz in ‘My sisters keeper’

 

My sister has always supported me. She has always been my best friend in the entire world. I would describe her as Reese Witherspoon in ‘legally blonde’. She is probably one of the kindest people I know but she is a typical Barbie. Shes blonde, she loves pink and anything that sparkles.

 

 

My other sister has passed away and I don’t think I could pick a character out of a movie that she would be like. She was brave during her fight with cancer however just wasnt strong enough. Never once did she think she was dying. Never once did she give up.

 

 

remember to be thankful for the people you have around you. They are precious and vulnerable and you never know when it will be the last time you see them.

 

Fashion Do’s.

I absolutely love the new range of sun dresses which have recently been re-introduced to the fashion world.

 

I first fell in love with this girly, petite look whilst watching ‘The Hills’ a reality TV show which follows Lauren Conrad and her friends around Los Angeles. Lauren has truly had a huge impact on my wardrobe and I find myself googling images of her so I can mimic some of her effortless beauty.

Whilst on my search for the perfect ‘Lauren’ look I have stumbled upon a few amazing websites.

Obviously the first being Laurens own fashion label, Paper crown: http://www.paper-crown.com/store-locator.html

& my favourite ASOS: http://www.asos.com/au/Women/?xr=1&mk=VOID&r=3

So go out and have some flirty fun with these beautiful styles.

Love stories.

They say when you meet the love of your life, time stops. And that’s true. What  they don’t tell you, is that once time starts again, it moves extra fast to  catch up.

Love at first sight, is it possible?

As much as I love to watch all of the soppy chick flicks as much as the next girl I find it hard to understand this idea of love at first sight.

Love, after all is more then what meets the eye. It is beautifully emotional, it is the ability of sharing 100% of who you are with someone else.

It is a scary and magical feeling that allows you to be brave enough to bare your soul to someone. So how can you fall in love with someone without knowing them?

Friendship?

Friendship, what defines it?

Is it the best memory you have? or the worst argument you got through?

When you find yourself questioning a friendship, what is the true value in it?

I’m at a point in my life where I only want to be surrounded by the best people, not to say they need to be perfect but being horrible and rude is a big no-no for me now.

I was hoping that by the age of 21 the school yard drama would have been but a distant memory. However I find that it seems to still exist in some of the people I hold dearest to me.

 

What is the turning point? When do you decide to stand up and say “I am better than this”

Geek. How to?

loving the geek look?

Here is a few tips as to how to pull it off

Tops

Peter pan collars are so adorable when rocking this look but you can never go past a printed shirt or even a plain shirt for that matter, Also dont look past a cartoon top, but be careful cartoon tops can either make or break the look.

Skirts

You cant go wrong with a printed skirt, just make sure it isnt too short and isnt skin tight. To pull off this look you really need to master the innocence of it. also suit skirts are adorable. Try not to be too matchy matchy though

The finishing touches.

Of course you can add ties or scarfes to this look but I love the classice blaser look. its clean cut and adds a little something to the look.

Oh and the outfit wouldnt be complete without the glasses.

Be brave and try it.

Advice. Baz Luhrmann.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you imagine.

Do one thing everyday that scares you.

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.

Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself.

Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you should hold on..

Travel.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.

I love you. Like Crazy.

The tough thing about following your heart is that people forget to mention that sometimes the heart takes you to places you shouldn’t be. Places that are as scary as they are exciting, and as dangerous as they are alluring. Sometimes your heart cannot take you to places that lead to happy endings. That’s not even the difficult part; the difficult part is when you follow your heart, you leave normal; you go into the unknown and once you do, you can never go back

Skin Products: Nude by Nature

I spent a lot of time searching for a skin product that was perfect for me. I have quite a natural look and most chemicals are too harsh for my skin. When I stumbled upon Nude by Nature I fell in love. It is absolutely amazing. I felt a huge pimple coming up on my face and after firstly scrubbing my face with the exfoliator and following it with the cleanser the pimple never came up.

The best thing about this product is it is natural and cheap. So if you are looking for skin products I recommend Nude by Nature.

 

Now I always buy their products and they seem to work for me so far. It is also helpful that they have a facebook page which help with any questions you may have.

After all this time?. Always.

Snape: “So when the time comes… the boy must die?”

Dumbledore: “Yes. Yes… he must die.”

Snape: “You’ve kept him alive so that he can die at the proper moment. You’ve been raising him like a pig for slaughter!”

Dumbledore: “Don’t tell me now that you’ve grown to care for the boy.

Lily… after all this time?”

Snape:  “Always”

The tragicically beautiful moment where you finally understand the complex character of Severus Snape.
