Absence is to love what wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small, it enkindles the great.


My lack of activity is very sad! My computer has gone kaput and now freezes and crashes pretty much all the time, boooooo. I have enough time to upload photos to Lookbook, but writing a post is far beyond my poor tired computer's abilities :(

Apologies and love! <3

It is not the broken heart that kills, but broken pride, monseigneur


This is a top I made the other day, fashioned from the material of an illfitting skirt. If I had a better photo of the whole outfit I would post it on lookbook - I had some pretty cute shoes to go with it... Anyway, I'd love to know what you think? I'm such an amateur with a needle and thread!

It was a friend's birthday; a dinner and cocktails. It was a classy affair to go with a classy girl so HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOTSTUFF! (Seeing as I'm not going to say her name I feel HOTSTUFF is a suitable alias)

And this outfit was just a bit of fun for a night out - I add the ruffles on the socks myself and felt like a big kid all night. Shame it looks like I have no friends in this photo ha! I should start calling myself Lonelygirl รก la Gossip Girl.

Hope all is good in the 'hood with you guys. It's rainy days and cups of tea where I am, you'll find me chilling in my Spongebob PJs although I'm thinking I might channel Blair Waldorf and wear a slip and dressing gown and knee high socks. Practical? I think not. But if I plan on going places, I better start dressing the part! As the show once said "Upper East Side Queens aren't born at the top. They climb their way up in heels, no matter who they have to tread on to do it." Wise words if I ever heard them.

Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.


(click on it for a far bigger view - does anyone know how to make my blog wider?)

This is what I wore last night, I'm really digging these shoes at the moment. Some girls were losers and calling me anorexic - hardly a new insult - but seriously, grow up. I eat and I'm happy so whatever fooooools. Today I dug out my mum's sewing machine, but I'm lacking inspiration right now... and lacking funds so I can't go out either. Well I lie, I will go out - guess I will have take a loan out from the Royal Bank of Parents until payday!

Ps. My love for turtlenecks is so REAL right now.

Youth is a quality, not a matter of circumstances.


Today is super sunny, however I am spending my day sewing a top for myself which hopefully will be done pretty asap! This is what I am wearing today - a t-shirt I am in LOVE with, even if I do say so myself!

To bide time, here are several photographs of yours truly which I feel wouldn't get a place in my blog otherwise.

I'm thinking about applying for Lookbook, because I'm addicted anyway! Is anyone here an active member?

A brain of feathers, and a heart of lead.


And so this post will be about yours truly - who else am I an expert on? My face -

Writing this blog, all I am armed with is my beloved customised Dell, my darling Fuji camera, and the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations (which my mother bought in late 1987).

I hope to make this my style blog. Knowing me though, anyone who finds this blog will probably also be exposed to mindless chatter and random late night ponderings from a sleep-deprived, diet coke addict, who is watching David Attenborough and QI reruns because she is too lazy and tired to go to bed - now that's an oxymoron if I ever heard one. It's sad but true.

One thing about me is I hate to be copied... the more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else. so embrace yourself completely, we don't live in 1984.

I am currently looking forward to this:

Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland - I wonder if it shall be the childhood fantasy or the very adult drug trip version?

So wise so young, they say, do never live long.


My first ever blog! It's rather exciting. What makes me tick?
Red lipstick crack whores. I like off-the-rails skinny girls - as long as it's not me.

Diet coke is my poison.
I like Agyness Deyn, I love leather, I'm a huge fan of spandex... so this middle photo makes me happy!
Gemma Ward is perfection.
Ps. I hate beige. I also hate beige people. Bland, unoriginal...ugh.
To anyone who reads this blog, BIENVENUE!
