LOVE!





Probably my most fave leisure reads for this summer, I am still reading it coz its so darned chunky, besides I hate too much excitement- its like having a gallon of sweets in one sitting. The illustration just pulls the whole thing together, I feel compelled to sbscribe- I NEVER ever do that! (replacing Netflix me thinks?) This shoot by Drew Jarret as a feature on Marc Jacobs AW14 for Love Mag- tell me this is the spitome of all that is chic and demure?

chick flick mantra :: prt1

Ive spent most of my day wallowing in self pity due to my broken finger- Basically i slammed my finger in between the door of a car- a moving car ,should I add. The pain was awful but it took me like a nights good sleep to realize that I hurt my right finger and might not be able to paint for a while- AND I'm right in the middle of a project. However- As you do; I took myself and my nieces to go shopping for junk food so I can wallow in more pity about my weight and the dimming light at the end of making a living from my hobby.

I spent my day watching chick flickz and I'm pretty certain I am not finished yet whilst doing so I realized not only can we learn crucial styling tips (facts/scriptures) we indulge in these sweet over exaggerated flicks because they remind us of our simple yet disabling problems as well as making up for the things we don't have. i.e Uptown Girls the hopelessly clumsy girl, with absolute charisma yet fails in love or a career- although her social life is booming (speaking of social life I should be at a friends but i cant go coz I have no one to help me tie my hair up... sad but honest). Anyway in the space of Clueless, Legally Blonde and Uptown Girls, i was motivated saddened (remind me to get some Kleenex for days like these) and I was in a sense empowered. 

The idea that these seemingly clueless girls went out their way to do all they had to do to get in a position where they saw them selves fit (Self Love :: Self worth)

There was always that one person that believed in them more than they ever did in themselves, most cases we find our voices through others- whether it be they coerce us into it, or they simply aid us in doing so. (Finding a voice :: Self Belief ). 


My fave part is sister hood- that's self explanatory, we are friends with the people who we choose and those friendships gives room to explore your similarities and differences -essentially why you are mates. (Sisterhood :: Finding a sense of self). Above all I love how chick flicks such as these, look everything that is girls in the same way some people would approach religion/spirituality.


Jokes aside, I'm yet to get past the clumsy girl phase,  I somehow  get an amazing career that I passionately  love, not forgetting falling in deep like/infatuation with some charming lad- coz right now all I want is muse. I must dash now more movies to be watched and Nietzsche books to be ignored... *sigh. ps my fave accessory from Uptown Girls had to be Dakota's sunglasses .OMG!!

grease meets cudi!



 waistcoat ; charity shop // shorts ; no clue // vest ; mate // shoes ; ebay fun&co.


i dare you to go through summer without touching your denim short shorts, literally impossible- the things is that we all end up looking the same in denim- you know... those denim shorts and the cute crop top but you decide to wear trainers because "they might just give you more notes on tumblr- coz its such a cute fit with you're trendy curly hair".. right?   Well yes what the heck else am I supposed to aspire too? Although with this outfit I tried to embody a form of masculinity, so no curls and cuteness. I feel like if Grease was redone in this decade they'd need me to style Danny- I mean you saw Cudi in a crop top at Coachella (he gets 10 life points for that) - the denim waist coat still shows off the arms as they would and should in Grease, why wear skinny fitted jeans when you can wear loose shorts that make your legs looks even slimmer. (I would like to know if im selling the idea yet- if not please read again then again and again until you're near enough a trance?) and if you dint like Cudi in a crop-top- I feel like you don't like all things good and beautiful.


 OMG! who has been playing the Kim Kardashian Game!? I need mates add me : fmarakami


wear this: to your next Grease themed party.



incase you dint see this cutey being overly cute.
