On the edge...

I'm standing on a line between giving up and seeing how much more I can take...

Je suis debout sur une ligne de démarcation entre l'abandon et de voir combien je peux prendre...

Pourquoi ne fait-il tant de mal?

Overanalyzing life...

So be happy,
be free
& let go

Beautiful cloudy days...

It's raining outside my window

...petites gouttes de pluie tombent du ciel...

but I don't mind...I just adore the rain...

I love everything about it

I love the way it smells...
the way it sounds...

The way it makes you feel like curling up inside
with a cup of tea...

...and a good book

And of course after the rain comes the rainbow...

A little dramatic perhaps...

Torn between hysterical delight and numbing pain
oh, la douleur exquise

In a strange alternate universe called life...

Where I'm doing cartwheels...

...and drowning all at once.


Un peu dramatique...So perhaps I'm being a little too dramatic...

oh well... telle est la vie... such is life

26 life lessons...

26 Life Lessons Learned by Age 26

1. Being an adult can be fun when you are acting like a child.
2. Love has nothing to do with looks, but everything to do with time, trust, and interest.
3. Laughing, crying, joy and anger… All are a vital. All make us human.

5. Greed will bury even the lucky eventually.

Brrrr it's cold in here...

Well Winter is well and truly upon us now...

I have to say I think it is the most romantic of all the seasons...

as you have a great excuse to cuddle up to cute boys

In Winter you can wear jeans every day...

and drink hot chocolate with marshmallows to warm your fingers

You get to wear gorgeous coats & jackets...

and it's delicious just sitting inside reading.

Bed just seams so much more cosy and you can snuggle all you want

And it's fun to stay inside and play in bed with your girlfriends

Brown eyes

This song makes me feel so many things...

In your brown eyes I walked away
In your brown eyes I couldn't stay
In your brown eyes you'll watch her go
Then turn the record on and wonder what went wrong

Where everything is everything but everything is over
Everything could be everything if only we were older
I guess it's just a silly song about you
And how I lost you and your brown eyes, brown eyes

I'm oh so restless...

VINTAGE CLOTHING is there anything more beautiful?

I absolutely je'dore my collection of vintage dresses, purses & heels from the 50's-90's

In the case of a house fire they would probably be the first things I try to rescue...

At the moment I am cleaning out my handbag & repacking so there is a scrap of order and I can find me keys instead of some old false eyelashes and a fork.

This is my dream organised purse!

This is exactly what my shoe area looks like at the moment I'm determine to double it by the end of the year.

One can never have too many shoes

Je'taime..are any words as sweet?

If I could be anywhere in the world it would be right here
I would wake up every morning with my grand amour
and drink champagne for breakfast...

I would have beautiful things...

And would wear beautfiul coutour...

And I would be happy
