"I knew from an early age that I could never do a job
where I'd have to sit in an office all day long."
-Lily Allen

i couldn't agree more.

p.s. check out Lily Allen on the cover of the new dec/jan
issue of Nylon Magazine on newsstands now.



Reading Opens Doors.

"I've traveled the world twice over,
Met the famous; saints and sinners,
Poets and artists, kings and queens,
Old stars and hopeful beginners,
I've been where no-one's been before,
Learned secrets from writers and cooks
All with one library ticket
To the wonderful world of books."

p.s. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.

My family believes I died in the Indian Ocean tsunami. I put my wallet and passport in a dead man's clothes and took his identity.



j'adore Paris.

C'est la raison pour laquelle je devrais être à Paris.
Ce que quelqu'un-moi s'il vous plaît acheter un billet d'avion?

This is why I should be in Paris.
Will someone please buy me an airline ticket?

There's a blog I came across thanks to my bestie Steven...
It's called The One-Minute Writer.
The idea is simple...
Read the prompt, start the timer, and begin to write.

Whoever says they have no time in the day to write
has obviously never visited this blog.

"You have 1,440 minutes a day.
Use one of them to write."

p.s. Happy Birthday to you...

Our soul's innermost desires.
So follow your dreams.

guess what has just hit the states...

(click the pic)

TopMan has recently launched it's online store!!!
For those asking, "What's TopMan? Sounds Dirty..."
Think of it this way... H&M but better... much better.
It's all the rage in the UK... they have a women's counterpart, TopShop [<--link]
The best part, prices are pretty much the same as the UK store...
None of that, inflated pricing because of currency differences.

Happy Shopping.



we are STILL not the enemy.

Keelia & Candice

If you guys remember, I posted news of this photo blog which showcases gay and lesbian couples, with the intention of encouraging voters to vote against discriminatory ballot arguments. In case you don't remember... me and my bf Chris were featured on it... here's the link >> click here

I was featured on the site, and above is my friend Keelia and her gf Candice... the site hasn't received very many submissions since the elections, and it would be a very sad thing to see this blog cancelled... so I urge you to share this with everyone you know, and keep in mind, submissions aren't exclusive to couples... anyone can subit a photo...

"There's definitely a dangerous feeling when you're in love--
it's giving your heart to someone else and knowing that they have control over your feelings.
I know for me, who always tries to be so tough, that's the dangerous thing.”

"A wonderful place to be. The birds are singing. The dreams that are sent to me.
Everyone's waving. But there's no noises. The smell of your skin.
The glittering lights of hell. I'm missing sin."
Lovely 2 C U - Goldfrapp

it's been an amazing 2 months babe... you continue to amaze me every single day.

If I stay home one night I start spreading rumors to my dogs."
