“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” ― Oscar Wilde

Hello to all my fashionistas, 

And welcome back to another fabulous Friday! I've been thinking, what actually constitutes fashion and what makes a fashionista, and if you think the answer is obviously 'fashion is clothing shoes and accessories and a fashionista is someone who is always on trend and rocking the latest from the run way' well yeah in terms of the socially accepted definition you are right fashion is clothing, shoes and accessories and a fashionista is always dressed in the latest. However to me fashion is about more than just clothing. It's about how they make you feel, they are an expression of self and a form of art, a fashionista is someone who pushes the boundaries and expresses them selves through their own sense of style and using clothing to complete the living, breathing art form that they want to create. So there's something to think about.

Things that gave me my sparkle this week:
New products at work, Thursdays are like Christmas in there, just with more styrofoam. White tea with rose, it's delicious, nutritious, smells divine and tastes great. Today I wore a maxi skirt for the first time in a long time, I felt so fantastic. Blogging in my polka dot onsie, can anybody say toastie?! Chicken and chorizo paella. Garlic, oh how I love garlic I use it a lot in cooking one because it makes everything taste good and two because its is excellent at alleviating the symptoms of cold and flue and fighting them, best herb ever. Did you know that a sultana is a dried white grape where as a raisin is a smaller red grape, either way I don't like them but I found it interesting. Afternoon naps with my kitten. Reading fashion mags equates to studying, I love my homework. Having a supportive boyfriend. Having a creative explosion, hello designs for spring/summer 2013.

  1. I'm hearin ya on the sultanas and raisins - YUCK!

    BTW I totally agree on the fashion/fashionista theory, you cant be a fashionista by just always dressing in the latest trends because often they dont suit a lot of people's body types. A fashionista is somebody who comes up with their own rules about fashion ;-)
