It's just fact...

A man invented cardboard tampon applicators. This is because men don’t have vaginas and therefore don’t understand what it is like to put a tiny bear trap inside of them.

You should never make friends with anyone with terrible taste in music. At one point or another, you might find yourself in their car.

You will probably regret the same tattoo you got with your new boyfriend. You will definitely regret the Twilight quote. Also, that inadvertently asymmetrical butterfly.
Nobody in reality likes “constructive criticism”.

People who park like idiots are terrible in bed. When you park like an idiot, you are self-centered, arrogant, and uninterested, none of which are ideal or even tolerable qualities in a lover.

When meeting a date in person for the first time since stumbling across them on a dating site, the biggest thing you can know for sure that you have in common is that you have both misrepresented yourselves in at least three ways.

The more styled her hair is, the more she will appreciate juicy gossip.

If you read more magazines than books, everyone thinks you’re boring. If you read more blogs than books, everyone thinks you’re good with computers. And if you read a lot of books, nobody wants to play Scrabble with you. Choose your reading material wisely!

If you often describe yourself as sarcastic, smart, or sexy, there is a 95% that you are none of those things. If you’ve ever described yourself as “not your average…”, there is a 100% chance that you are very average.

Unless you’re sharing, nobody cares what you made for dinner.

People who struggle with colour coordinating their outfits should never be allowed to voice their opinions when it comes to interior design decisions or helping you pick out an outfit.

After the first drink, you are never as sober as you think you are (Trust me, I really know this.)

If you’re constantly worried that people’s passive aggressive comments are actually about you, you are a horrible person.



Life is like a box of Crayons...

"Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you’re

really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy

myself to be a 64-color box, though I’ve got a few missing. It’s ok though, because

I’ve got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8-color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation.. So when I meet someone who’s an 8-color type.. I’m like, “hey girl, magenta!” and she’s like, “oh, you mean purple!” and she goes off on her purple thing, and I’m like, “no – I want magenta!”

Wild things

Everyone who knows me, knows how obsessed I am with Leopard Print. I am slightly OTT!


Animal prints are eye-catching and hence meant to be the only ‘statement’ pieces – tone down the rest of your ensemble and play up just the print worn, either as an accessory or the item of clothing.

Experiment with different animal prints- Don’t stop at the leopard!


Don't Mix animal prints! Can’t play mix and match here… it’s a bit like mixing your whiskey and your gin and your beer on a night out. Someone’s bound to barf!

There’s a very fine line between bold and OTT. While animal prints are bold and ultra hot, you can easily go OTT if you wear it with contrasting textures. So keep the look simple and sleek.


Why do we celebrate birthdays?

Are you carefree and happy when it’s your birthday? Why do we celebrate birthdays?  Why is it so momentous to us?

Birthdays are celebrated everyday and everywhere. From China to North America, birthdays are milestones that are celebrated in everyone’s life. While the celebrations are different, the events and reasons to celebrate them are the same across all cultures. A birthday carries many unsaid societal norms.

For instance, in the U.S. when you turn 18, there is an expectation to start living on you’re own or go to college. In contrast, in Hispanic cultures 18th birthdays are not a big deal. If you are a Hispanic female at 15, you celebrate “Quinceanera”, and in the U.S. you have to wait one more year to celebrate your “Sweet Sixteen”- the MTV ritual.

Birthdays are the beginning and the end of personal rights and privileges. As you get older you gain the right to vote, to drive, to consume alcohol or to smoke. But as we continue to age, we start losing opportunities as well.

Birthdays are a public declaration of a new phase in your life. From childhood to adulthood, every time we reach one of the milestones, the expected behaviour from that individual changes. With age comes new roles and norms. These changes include how to behave in public, how to dress, and how to talk.  

Our birthdays are a validation of identity and existence.  Directly or indirectly, we evaluate ourselves against our life plan.  How many times have you said to yourself, “At this age I will be married” (in my case, 25, SHOCK HORROR!) or  “at this age I will be ready for retirement” (35 would be nice, thanks). Birthdays make us think, who are we? And where am I in my life?

We only have a limited number of birthdays and we always celebrate them to the fullest . Because every year that passes, each birthday will be different. Mine was yesterday, and probably the best birthday I have ever had. I was wished by family, old friends and even better, new ones. Our birthdays would mean nothing if it wasn’t for the people we are surrounded by. I am truly blessed!

By the way if today is your birthday, Happy Birthday!

Celebration madness

Those moments when you cant even express the amount of joy you just experienced- I had that this weekend.

It was my birthday party on Saturday with probably the most awesome people ever. Seeing as though I am slightly OTT about leopard print the theme was “Into the Wild”, most of the girls made an effort, but the boys were slightly less adventurous with it. Maybe they wore leopard print underwear, who knows!

I just had a small get together with mates at my house including the MOST delicious prego rolls! Sipping on Veuve Clicquot, soaking up the sun with plenty fabulous conversation- I literally couldn't have asked for more.

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. Albert Schweitzer
