Will you Marry Me?

Joke!!! Haha leap year or not I'm a hopeless romantic and firm believer that the guy should ask the girl... I am nowhere near tying the knot... But with all this talk of proposals I thought I'd post this video which I thought was really touching. I don't even know the couple, but if one day I say "I do" to the man of my dreams I kinda hope I have a wedding video like this... slightly alternative in a chilled and simple yet sentimental way.

This is another little gem I stole from Danny Kelly

Young Love

I met up with an old friend recently and we had a lot to catch up on, he's a philosophical soul, and as we giggled over our pints of cider we discussed life. Our opinions contrasting yet complementing each other, he has lived his life by the beach in sunny California, where as I have always lived on the outskirts of London.

We talked about love and relationships past and present, and where I still find myself very much dazed and confused by the subject, he did offer a moment of clarity when he exclaimed... We are all just searching for young love, the love you fall head over heels into without caution or hesitation, where you love passionately and freely with all of your heart blissfully unaware of any of life's pressures or responsibilities. Unfortunately this kind of love rarely lasts and when it ends it scars us. We then go on to yearn not for that person but for the feeling we had when we were with them. But experience and wisdom teaches us not to be so reckless with our hearts for fear of being hurt again. We build metaphorical walls of protection around us and make those who want to love us work hard to get in. And as we grow up, making lives for ourselves our priorities change, and love is never the same, it takes a back seat to work, obligation and responsibility... Young love becomes a hazy memory, a dream.

It makes sense however much I'd like to believe I can prove the theory wrong. I suppose I too am afraid of falling so deeply in love that love itself has the power to drown you. Can you emerse yourself so deeply in another without suffocating? And can you really trust another person if you make them responsible for your happiness? I guess I'll have to wait and see... Bob Marley once said "The truth is everyone's going to hurt you, you just got to find the ones worth suffering for"

Today is that day!

Nothing is going right today... and when someone asked me outside Bella's Ballet class if I was ok I thought I was going to burst into tears! Why is it when you're feeling a little emotional the more people ask if you're ok the more upset you seem to get... Brave face Abby *sniff sniff*

LoveCat Meow... Valerie van der Graaf

Had to share the super hot pics of Valerie van der Graaf for the 4th issue of LoveCat Magazine, my kind of editorial, fun, sexy, colourful!

Burberry made it Rain

Hooray for London Fashion Week, I could get carried away writing about all my favorite shows but I'll try and limit myself... I loved the Burberry Fall 2012 collection... from the studded biker gloves to the cute bird print tops (The owls were my favorite) waist cinched in with pretty bow belts, perfect for hourglass figures... I would buy the whole collection if I could. The finale was brilliant... fake rain (well you cant have those beautiful clothes getting wet) and the models carrying umbrellas down the runway... genius!

White Pod Alpine Ski Resort

I woke up feeling like I was in an igloo this morning, and in anticipation of this weekends snowy weather forecast my mind (and Google browser) was drawn to researching snowy skiing adventures. I stumbled across this amazing resort in the Swiss Alps. The White Pod Alpine Ski Resort is located 1700 meters above sea level in the village of Les Cerniers and consists of 15 original accommodation units in the shape of igloos.
