MOTHER GOOSE SAID SO

'WHAT ARE LITTLE GIRLS MADE OF? SUGAR AND SPICE AND ALL THINGS NICE, THAT'S WHAT LITTLE GIRLS ARE MADE OF!' 

SPEAKING IN ⒸⓄⒹⒺ

I'M FASCINATED BY ALL THESE SPECIAL CHARACTERS AND SYMBOLS POPPING UP ALL OVER BBM/TWITTER/FACEBOOK AND FIND MYSELF HUNTING THEM OUT ON THE WWW (GEEK MOMENTS). BELOW IS JUST A SMALL SAMPLE OF THE MANY THOUSANDS. QUITE EXPRESSIVE AND UNIQUE IS UNICODE.

IN TRYING TO UPLIFT THE FASHIONISHA MOOD

...I THOUGHT THESE DOORKNOCKER EARRINGS BY NEW YORK'S BADACIOUS WOULD DO THE TRICK. UNIQUE, BOLD AND OUTSPOKEN IS THEIR STYLE, SO DO LIKE ADRIENNE BAILON AND WEAR THEM WITH THAT 'BADACIOUSNESS'.  

MY BELATED AMY TRIBUTE

I FOUND THIS HONEST ILLUSTRATION BY MICHELE MELCHER OF AMY WINEHOUSE WHO, LIKE SHE HERSELF SAID, I'M NOT POSTING IN BAD TASTE, I JUST FELT IT PORTRAYED HER SELF DESTRUCTIVE PERSONALITY WHICH ULTIMATELY AND UNFORTUNATELY LED TO HER DOWNFALL. RIP TO A BIG HAIRED, BIG VOICED, BIG BRITISH SOULFUL TALENT.

WHAT A WEEK IT'S BEEN

GRIEF, TEARS, PRAYER, FAMILY, FRIENDS AND MEMORIES. THIS SERIES OF PRINTS BY ROSEMARY LAING BEST DEPICT  MY BAG OF MIXED EMOTIONS THIS WEEK. TO THOSE OF YOU WHO REACHED AND SHOWED SUPPORT DURING MY TIME OF NEED, I THANKYOU. WHOLEHEARTEDLY. TO THOSE OF YOU HAVE LOST A LOVED ONE, I NOW UNDERSTAND YOUR PAIN. FULLY.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY CAN MAKE

IT'S FUNNY HOW MY LAST POST WAS ABOUT BIRTH, BUT AS ONE LIFE BEGUN, ANOTHER ENDED. MY GRANDFATHER PASSED AWAY PEACEFULLY ON WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AGED 97. DON'T LET THE YEARS FOOL YOU - HE HAD A SHARP MIND AND GOOD SKIN! A NOBLE MAN WITH A HAPPY-GO-LUCKY CHARACTER AND THE MOST IMPECCABLE DRESS SENSE. HE NEVER BOTHERED ANYONE WITH HIS PAIN OR SUFFERING. I ADMIRED HIM FOR HIS STRENGTH, HIS UNSELFISHNESS AND HIS INTELLECT. I ONLY HAVE FOND MEMORIES OF HIM AND HE WILL BE MISSED DEARLY...THE PHOTO IS FROM 1987, 'BAPA' AS WE WOULD CALL HIM, AGED 73 AND ME ALL DOLLED UP FOR 3RD BIRTHDAY. I'LL BACK TO BLOGGING SOON GUYS, RIGHT NOW MY GRANDFATHER NEEDS A GRACIOUS SEND OFF.

THERE'S A NEW KID IN TOWN

DAVID BECKHAM TOOK THIS PEACEFUL PIC OF HIS 'TWO GIRLS SLEEPING' AND POSTED IT ON FACEBOOK REVEALING ONE OF THE FIRST SNAPS OF THEIR DAUGHTER HARPER SEVEN. BORN LAST SUNDAY, THE NAME 'HARPER SEVEN' STEMS FROM VICTORIA'S FAVE BOOK 'TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD' BY HARPER LEE AND SEVEN IS DAVID'S LUCKY FOOTBALL SHIRT NUMBER. TO CELEBRATE THE OCCASION I DID A SPOT OF (SLIGHTLY BROODY) TOPSHOP MINI SHOPPING AND PUT TOGETHER A PRETEND GIFT FOR THE FOURTH ADDITION.

IF IT'S BEEN A LONG DAY

LEAN BACK, RELAX AND PUT YOUR FEET UP.

SHAKING IN HER BONES

I'VE SPOKEN HIGHLY OF HIM BEFORE AND I'VE SPOKEN HIGHLY OF HER BEFORE, SO I WAS THRILLED TO SEE KELIS HAD CHOSEN TO PERFORM IN ASHISH AT THE LOVEBOX FESTIVAL IN LONDON AT THE WEEKEND. DRIPPING IN SEQUINS, THE SKELETON DANCED STRAIGHT OUT OF HER CLOSET.

GETTING SHIRTY

THE PERKY BREASTS IN THIS BUTTON DOWN SHEER SHIRT FEATURE IN THE INTRO OF A VIDEO FOR KARIN + RAOUL MAGAZINE. NOW THE QUESTION THAT'S GETTING ON MY TITS IS, WHERE CAN I GET MY HANDS ON ONE?

ICE-QREAM

PHARRELL RECENTLY LAUNCHED A NEW CREAM LIQUOR FOR US QUEENS AND CALLED IT QREAM. THE DRINK HAS A STRAWBERRY OR PEACH ICE-CREAM AND VODKA TYPE TASTE. FLAWLESS FACED EVA MARCILLE HAPPILY SIPPED THE NEW BEVY AT THE LAUNCH PARTY WHILST THE DRINK'S CREATOR LOOKED ON WITH ANTICIPATION.

BACK TO SCHOOL BAG

NO LONGER JUST A SCHOOL GIRL STAPLE, SATCHEL BAGS HAVE MADE A COMEBACK. THIS BAG CARRIES A PROFESSIONAL OFFICE CHARM WHICH MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE YOU MEAN BUSINESS (EVEN IF YOU DON'T). CHOOSE A METALLIC VERSION LIKE THESE FROM ASOS AND BREAK THE BORING UNIFORM CODE.

FILLING THE BLANK PAGES

HALF SHAVEN SINGER + MODEL CASSIE FEATURES IN THIS MONTH'S BLANK MAGAZINE. THE PINK AND PURPLE HUES ADD TO THE ALREADY EXISTING HEAT SHE CREATES. OOZING SEXY, THE SHOTS REMIND ME OF THAT SONG BY R. KELLY, 'SUMMER BUNNIES DRIVE ME CRAZY...'

MUM'S MADE MY FAVOURITE

THERE'S A LASAGNA IN THE OVEN. A DELIGHTFUL DISH CONSISTING OF LAYERS OF PASTA, CHEESE, TOMATO SAUCE AND MINCED MEAT. ADORED BY GARFIELD AND EATEN MY ME.

THE ART OF WAITING

WAITING PATIENTLY, NOT SOMETHING I'M VERY GOOD AT. 'THE WAITING GIRL', A PAINTING BY ARTIST LORETTA LUX HAS A KINDA CALM TO IT. I'LL THINK OF THIS THE NEXT TIME I'M WAITING FOR A BUS, OR AN UPLOAD, OR FOR THE KETTLE TO BOIL...

A CLEVER CONCEPT

ONLINE CONCEPT STORE LN-CC HAS CLEVERLY BRIDGED THE GAP BETWEEN RETAIL, ART AND STYLE. OFFERING INTERIORS, HIGH END FASHION, MUSIC AND BOOKS - THEY'VE CREATED AN ALL ENCOMPASSING WORLD. THE MENSWEAR ON OFFER GOT MY APPLAUSE, PANDA SHIRT PARTICULARLY.

BAISER: THAT'S FRENCH FOR KISS

EVER WONDERED WHERE THE TERM 'FRENCH KISS' ORIGINATED? WELL I DID. AFTER CONSULTING MY BUDDY GOOGLE, I FOUND OUT THAT IT DATES BACK TO THE 1920s WHERE THE FRENCH HAD A REPUTATION FOR BEING MORE ADVENTUROUS IN THE BEDROOM. TO BE FRENCH WAS TO BE PASSIONATE AND NOT BE SHY ABOUT IT. ET VOILA! THAT'S FINE BY ME.

RAIN ON MY PARADE

@RIHANNA

THIS IS RIHANNA'S CURRENT TWITTER PROFILE PIC. SHE'S CERTAINLY ON HER WAY TO MAKING THE HISTORY BOOKS. THEY SAY EVERYONE LOVES A BAD BOY, BUT DOES EVERYONE REALLY LOVE A BAD GIRL?

I LIKE THE WAY SHE DOO IT

I'M REALLY INTO ELIZA DOOLITTLE'S KOOKY STYLE. HER SIGNATURE LOOK SEEMS TO BE A COMBO OF BELLY BEARING CROPPED TOPS, PRINTED SHORT SHORTS AND RETRO NIKE HIGH TOPS. SHE MIXES VINTAGE, DESIGNER AND HIGH STREET WITH EASE - LIKE SHE'S PULLED IT OUT OF A PRECIOUS DRESSING-UP BOX. TOPPED WITH BEACHY WAVES, ELIZA'S ENTRANCE IS ANYTHING BUT LITTLE.

YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS

BREEZY GETS STRAIGHT DOWN TO BUSINESS IN HIS 'NO BS' MUSIC VIDEO. IT'S 3 IN THE MORNING AND CHRIS SHOWS US JUST HOW HORNY HE IS.

TO ALL THE FOOLS AND ASSHOLES

SOMETIMES WHEN I NEED TO GET SHIT OFF MY BRAIN I WRITE MY THOUGHTS DOWN IN A LETTER/IN A POEM/OR ON HERE. THESE WORDS AREN'T MINE BUT I CAN RELATE. I'M SURE WE ALL CAN. THIS WAS A LOVE POEM DISCOVERED BY A DUDE WALKING HIS DOG. IT WAS WRITTEN ON THE BACK OF A RESTAURANT WINE MENU. PROBABLY AFTER THEY'D DOWNED THE WINE THEY ORDERED.

GEE, THANKS

I PASSED THIS HAIRDRESSERS YESTERDAY. THE NAME DOESN'T EXACTLY SUGGEST 'COME IN' DOES IT.

CINEMA STATUS

SORRY GUYS AND GIRLS NO UPDATES ON THAT MOVIE I WAS MEANT TO SEE, WE GOT THE FRONT OF 2 QUEUES AT YES, 2 SEPARATE CINEMAS AND HEARD THOSE 2 DREADED WORDS YOU DON'T WANNA HEAR WHEN YOU'VE ALREADY PICKED YOUR ICE CREAM FLAVOUR. SOLD. OUT.
