Beautiful Disaster

A lover of all fine things.

We have to stop wars, we have to stop this war, and we have to get out of the habit of war. It’s more than a habit, it’s an addiction. We have to get out of thinking that we must be a military superpower. We must get out of thinking that we must have military bases as we have in a hundred countries. Is it possible that having military bases in a hundred countries arouses a lot of antagonism? Is it possible that it provokes terrorism? When your soldiers and your sailors are all over the world, occupying this country and that? Is it possible? Why do we have to be a military superpower? Why can’t we be a humanitarian superpower? Instead of sending planes to bomb, why don’t we send planes with food and medicine?

Paris Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2013-14

Fashion weeks have been taken place all over the world in major cities the past few weeks. Paris has hosted this weeks fashion week and showcased major designers such as Hermes, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton. Autumn/winter clothing happens to be my favorite style so this season’s fashion that has hit the runway has left me in awe. None of the runway shows have disappointed me; all with intriguing up and coming fashion any girl would love to own.

My favorite this season has to be Valentino. Valentino is already one of my top choice in designers along with Chanel and the clothing that walked down the runway was impeccable. Few words to describe the show: chic, elegant, classy, simple. Every single dress that Valentino has showcased was very well designed, and executed and very cohesive. The detailing on each design ceases to amaze me. Ordinarily runway fashion is known to be quite unusual and is often times hard to wear but every item in Valentino’s Autumn/winter collection is something I would love to wear whether it be to class, or to dinner parties. Check out the collection for yourself. Here’s a peak of some of Valentino’s collection.

Why I love 500 Days of Summer

Because it is so realistic:

Tom: Why’d you dance with me?

Summer: Coz I wanted to.

T: You just do what you want don’t you? You never wanted to be someone’s gf and now you’re somebody’s wife.

S: Surprised me too.

T: I don’t think I’ll ever understand that. I mean it doesn’t make sense.

S: It just happened.

T: Right that’s what I don’t understand. What just happened?

S: I just woke up one day and I knew.

T: Knew what?

S: What I was never sure of with you.

T: You know what sucks? That everything you believe in is complete and utter bullshit. It sucks. You know, destiny, soul mates, true love and all that childhood fairytale, none sense. You were right. I should have listened to you.

The 26-year-old singer looked floral fabulous in a Gucci dress while dishing about everything from her film writing efforts to stage fright and her public image.”
