Quiet Girl
by Langston Hughes

I would liken you
To a night without stars
Were it not for your eyes.
I would liken you
To a sleep without dreams
Were it not for your songs.

Romeo and Juliet

William Shakespeare

He jests at scars that never felt a wound.

JULIET appears above at a window
But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
Who is already sick and pale with grief,
That thou her maid art far more fair than she:
Be not her maid, since she is envious;
Her vestal livery is but sick and green
And none but fools do wear it; cast it off.
It is my lady, O, it is my love!
O, that she knew she were!
As daylight doth a lamp; her eyes in heaven
Would through the airy region stream so bright
That birds would sing and think it were not night.
See, how she leans her cheek upon her hand!
O, that I were a glove upon that hand,
That I might touch that cheek!

Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
.
There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight
To cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
And the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And watch where the chalk-white arrows go
To the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we’ll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And we’ll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
For the children, they mark, and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends.

I Love  SHEL SILVERSTEIN growing up, i love poetry  i read it all the time it inspires me to write myself

sleeping beauty

Wow what a day , I woke up to clouds and overcast, and i thought it was the middle of May already! quick post before i head out! On days like this, i like to dress to help brighten my mood and those around me.  I opted for a 50’s style dress and simple shrug!  I just got a hair cut a few days ago from my friend  and i think she did a wonderful job! i ve been getting so many awesome compliments  and my bf and family are in love! It’s great to change-up your hair and style sometimes makes you feel refreshed! so try something new, get your nails done PAMPER yourself sometimes. we all deserve it!  Have a wonderful day xx

close up! love the details!

Dresses

Dresses are one of my most favourite pieces of clothing ever created! Evey dress i put on i feel like a princess in it. It makes you  look very lady – like – and very stylish!  I hate that girls / women don’t wear dresses like they used to. I ve already started my summer dress shopping starting at H&M garden collection which i will show later on in blog ;) My inspiration this summer is the 50’s  summer dresses. I plan to wear one every – single  day in the summer!

Mens Summer trends 2010

I  love fashion, for anyone, i try my best to help  my boyfriend and friends to look their best! I m surprised to find  either guys care what they look like and wanna try to look good, or they dont even bother.  My bf was saying  the hardest  thing to do  is look good and try to impress with out looking a  like “tool” .  Guys seem to be lost when trying to put outfits together and knowing what looks good with that.  This is where my passion for fashion comes in, i love styling, costumes, designing & creating new outfits!

 SO as i get a lot of requests im going to do a summer guide for  all the guys out there where to buy and find great classic pieces at affordable prices!

1. Shirts

a) Calvin Klein poplin button-down  – cotton poplin, there’s no need for an unsightly undershirt.  This button-down keeps you clean, crisp and  sweat free as the warmer weather returns : D

* TIP  guys try taking your button down shirts and rolling the sleeves up, for a causal look that you can pair with jeans and loafers!  i great way to look great and save money by taking existing clothing and chaning them up!

b) H&M –  always a great staple for guys,  they have great shirts from $10 that you can layer underneath clothes , or wear causally

c) 1963 denim work shirt – Denim is hot this season  even for guys!   Ralph lauren has a hot denim like coloured pony that would look great with jeans or khaki pants

H&M

 

rolled up sleeves!

 

2 ) shorts!

a) more relaxed shorts with a skinny belt is your best bet this season! its all about looking cool and causal  and still handsome!

Love these shorts with guy with a  looser polo and sandles

 

b) plaid shorts !

these shorts look nice anywhere you go , from the driving range, to the bar and out on a summer day!  great with shirts and rolled up sleeves!

H&M have great shorts for a cheap price!

c) khaki shorts  is a great way to go if you want to dress up, but still  look like you can sit down and be causal! pairing up the shorts with a  soft coloured polo is a great summer trend!  here is the look pulled together

3) Shoes!

a) Slip-ons or sandles : casual slip-ons will be favored by all .. this spring and summer, to and stick with the cream and and browns.  They can also be worn with jeans, shorts or causal pants

b) Moccasins leather loafers The classic and simpleclassic colors like black, brown, white and brown. They go well with “not so formal” clothes.

c) Running shoes : and of course running shoes, high tops, sports,  limited edition, these can still be worn with  tighter fighting  jeans and shorts. keep them clean and like new to impress the ladies!

love pumas – white classic with jeans

 

I will KEEP updating my men trends to keep everyone updated! next look out for : The right jean fit for ever guy !
