Book worth reading.

I recently got my hands on a fabulous designer, Anna Sui's, book. It's filled with vibrant designs that range from pirate-esque to swedish-vintage. Sui has proven to always step out of the box and create something that makes her happy, and the world just seems to follow along with it.

Becoming Anna Sui for me would be amazing, but in Anna's case she had connections. Which always seems the way it goes! No? Well, in ten or so years just keep your eyes and ears peeled. I haven't exactly figured out a brand name I'd use yet. But I'll keep you posted.

Here's some detes on her book, if you too want to submerge yourself in the delectable world of Anna Sui;

Buddha is as Buddha does

There's just something about the idea of Buddhism that intrigues me. I don't know if it's the peaceful way of life, the restraint they exert every single day or just that there are so many aspects of Buddhism that I respect and agree to. I don't think I'd ever be able to fully become a Buddhist, or to practice in thier ways, because there are also aspects of the religion that I could just never live without indulging in. I know that sounds terrible, not wanting to take part in something amazing because it interfers with my inulgences.

At the moment I'm a Christian, born and raised. But there's just so many things I wish being a Christian involved. For instance; I don't particularly believe in Heaven or Hell for that matter, to me reincarnation is much more believable, and exciting. Secondly I've always thought that there was some sort of system that praised the good for their good deeds and vice versa for the more "evil" people, aka, Karma. My friends think it's stupid I believe in Karma but I do, I think if people believe in it, not only is it true but it keeps them in key. No one fools around when they know there's a punishment as such waiting for them.

That brings me to the things I know I can't do. I can't possibly imagine my life without be able to indulge myself in the joys of getting drunk with my friends and just being blissfully unaware of my surroundings. Technically Alcohol is a drug, and I respect in them sustaining from it, but I could NEVER. Secondly, eating meat. If you've read my previous blogs you would understand how I feel about this. To put it simply, I think it's the healthy way to live, the natural cycle of the food chain is for us to eat smaller mammals. What honestly needs to be criticised about that?

To end this, I think I'm going to have a try at meditation.

And then maybe a Chai Latte.


Seeing Red

Leighton Meester: Leighton looks absolutely stunning in this Burberry Prorsum dress, even though to some people it may seem a bit 'prudish' or 'old-fashioned' I think that it just shows how amazing a woman can look without having to show off her skin. Also it shows how she isn't pressured by society to do so.

Emma Stone: I've grown to get a bit of a female crush on Emma Stone and in this Calvin Klien dress, donning her new do she looks every inch a beautiful woman. Not only is she gorgeous but she has a killer sense of humour, telling Rob Pattinson that "Not everyone can be as pretty as you". Love it!

I can't help but smile when I see these photos, it reminds me of all the antics that me and my friends have gotten up to.

Never have I actually ever sat down and thought, what do I want to accomplish in this New Year?
What am I going to change?

So for once I thought I'd do it*. And here's what I came up with.
- Not to waste my time on people who don't care about me. Or just generally to surround myself with happy people who feel the same as I do for them.
-Travel numerous countries, and as a result increase my knowledge of different cultures.
-Actually stick to an exercise regime!
-Read book after book the whole year to keep my mind sharp for Uni.
-If an oppurtunity comes up to try something new, TAKE IT.
-Get more involved in charities and world issues.

Well I know it's not a huge list, but atleast I can say I'm proud of it.

See you on the other end.

One step at a time

Single handedly Isabel Lucas has saved the lives of numerous whales being slaughtered by the Japanese, as well as being arrested (for her strong protests) and acting in hollywood blockbusters.

As you've probrably previously read I want to help join the fight for Orang-Utans, so as you can imagine Isabel is a huge inspiration for me.
