My Goodies!

I'm still accumulating presents and gifts off friends of mine. The lovely Krystle Eyes brought me not one but two pairs of shoes for Christmas and I received them this week. I love the Snake Tassle Shoe Boots below (Matalan). I own them in purple but I couldn't find an image -sorry! I've had my eye on them for a while and can't wait to rock them. They're a refreshing change to my typical clumpy platform shoes and a touch more classy!

The second pair is the Chain Detail Platform Shoe Boot (Matalan) and they're H-I-G-H!!!! These are solely for getting in and out of the car with, regardless of how comfy they are! I practiced doing the two step in my flat but I founding bending the knees a little difficult as they are so rigid around the leg.

My other friend kindly gave me her Hooded Fairisle Scarf (New Look) as she doesn't wear it. It's so funny as this week I said I wanted a hooded scarf and voila I got one - good times!

Miss Rhi Rhi looks nice....

Rihanna looks nice in these pictures and because I love a black and white image I thought I'd put a couple up. These are my favourite two from her latest spread in W Magazine. I love her hair and make-up, I want to style my hair like this, but don't think I can get the fullness without extensions....sigh!!!

New Nose Ayone???

I know this topic isn't new, but I'm surprised at the amount of celebrities that have had some form of cosmetic surgery. Although some people’s surgery is so subtle you can't quite put your finger on what's changed. I remember when Amerie came back with her video for 1 thing and I thought oooh she looks pretty, the same with Kelly Rowland in the Loose My Breath video (don't get me wrong both of these artists were pretty before). I put it down to blossoming with age like fine wine.

Little did I know that they’d resorted too rhinoplasty (nose jobs). The list is endless for the amount of artists that have had the odd nip and tuck. I'm not going to fill up my page with before and afters pictures but we've all heard names on the rumour mill including Beyonce, Ashley Simpson, Avril Lavinge, Megan Fox Tyra Banks, Aaliyah, Lil Kim, Halle Berry, Toni Braxton, Kim Kardashian and Pepa. At least Michael Jackson admitted to "some" of his surgery. Other celebs will have you think they were born that way. I don't know I guess it takes away some of the realness.

I'm not one to judge, but I think all these women looked pretty enough before undergoing surgery. Each to their own it's your body and if you've got the money then that’s your prerogative. However there are many impressionable young fans who look up to these women and there beauty and probably feel they have to have there nose altered to be deemed beautiful. Surely if asked you should admit to having some work done. I'm not saying shout it from the roof tops but be honest about it. That’s like claiming all the hair on your head is your's whilst you add extensions. I want to feel I can relate to people, flaws and all and not the perfect image that's splattered within society.

Why do so many women choose to have their noses done. Is it because it's a focal part of your face?!?!? Is it because women aspire to have the famous straight nose (what ever that is)?!?!? Or maybe it's because society has made us less attractive unless we lokk a certain way?

Week 13 Of My Journey Getting To New York.

This week has been very busy for me, I've worked non stop since Monday the 28th of December. It feels like I haven’t even had time to bring in the New Year properly. I’m yet to clear out my flat and have a good clean up. Hence why it's been quiet on the New York front. The most I’ve done this week is join some acting agencies as I’m on a quest to get some extra roles in a bid to accrue more money. Apart from that I haven’t chased any more American media companies. I’m going to make more of an effort this coming week.

On another note Fashion Bytes brought me this lovely note book for Christmas (below) which has motivated me even more. It has a metro system map, street planner, removable sheets, and tracing paper enabling me to map my journeys. Most importantly 70+ blank pages for me to jot down memorable places, my journey, important info etc. I got so excited flicking through and reminisced subway routes I used to take. Where I used to live, my closest station (34 Penn Station) etc. I'm really looking forward to filling up this note book
