Love It.

Blame It On The Alcohol

First of all, my friend is gonna KILL me when she sees this picture! But I can't help it.

I listened to Jamie Foxx & T-Pain's Blame It all weekend long and then I was randomly looking through some old pictures and I came across this one and the song just fit the picture perfectly.

We had had quite a few bottles of all things alcoholic and as you can probably tell from the sun filtering in, it was the morning after and my dear friend had passed out on the three chairs. Absolute Hilarity!!!

Jamie Foxx + T-Pain - Blame It

'blame it on the ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-alcohol!'

Because I Can : Sam Levenson

...because I can and because I'm in an Audrey state of mind...

this poem, originally written by Levenson for his grandchild, would later become Audrey's favourite...

Time Tested Beauty Tips

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowlege you'll never walk alone . . .

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed and redeemed . . .

Never throw out anybody.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

-Sam Levenson


Je Voudrais...

... un apartement a une chambre dans la ville. Merci.

Excuse my poor french, all I'm trying to say is I would like a one bedroom apartment in the city. Thank you.
My flat hunt is not going really well. Evidentement.

*that's my 'Oh MY! must. find. flat.' face*

I've been really bored as well so I'm thinking of taking French classes again.

See the thing with me and French is this, my written french is relatively good, my spoken, not so much. If I have to write something in French then I guess I'd be fine but when I have to say it, I generally have to think of it first, translate it, making sure my tenses are correct and then say it out. It takes me a while but I get there eventually. : )

It'll keep me busy as well. These days I spend my days watching movies and my nights listening to music, most likely Ms Simone. I've been reading as well. Currently reading a book called The Dirty Girls Social Club by Alisa Valdes Rodriguez. Kinda like a Latin SATC.

Speaking of Sabrina, wasn't her wardrobe just darling? I really loved the outfit she had on at the station while waiting for her father to come pick her up. And that white and black dress is just gaWjus! All hail Hubert de Givenchy!

She Wore What?

First Lady Michelle Obama in Isabel Toledo on Inauguration Day

Cuban-American designer Isabel Toledo with husband and partner Ruben.

Old School

Liya Kebede and Jourdan Dunn in US Vogue February '09.
Doesn't this shot remind you of those fashion catalogues of old that would have two models in the picture dressed in similar looking but slightly different outfits?

Prelude To History

And we would tell our children; 'On that day, as pertaining to our future, our hopes and our dreams, all doubt, fear and feelings of hopelessness were replaced with one simple but poignant phrase...'Yes We Can'

The Dream is now Reality.
