Who's laughing now

Who's laughing now - Jessie J


And you're loving me like water, your slipping through my fingers touch

And you're loving me like water, your slipping through my fingers touch - Cheryl Cole

Love is just like water, it's not something you can hold onto or control, sure you can put it in a box, or a bowl, but eventually that waters going to disappear, so really you have no control over it all. If your looking for love, don't settle for water. Love is like a grain of sand on the beach, it's hard to notice, it's hard to find but it's out there. If you ever google what a grain of sand looks like your probably be surprised. It's not what you would expect sand to look like, even a grain. In fact each grain is a tiny beautiful shell, each unique, and each impossible to see without a microscope. It's all about pre-judging things on first expectation, you need to take time to look at something more closely, and it can be in fact a hidden gem, and just what you were looking for all along, all you need to do is take your time.

Here I am, once again I'm torn into pieces. . .Broken up, deep inside

Here I am, once again I'm torn into pieces. . .Broken up, deep inside - Kelly Clarkson

It's funny, i was asked to create a timeline of my life, and found i really had nothing to talk about, or really anything I've achieved. I don't look back on my life and remember the family moments or people I've known, I look back and remember the people i turned to when i was in need. I remember watching this video in 2007 for the first time on TV, i guess I'm kinda obsessed with music videos, and even though this video was about a wedding, i was able to connect it, and envision myself in the video. I always remember what Lady Gaga said, she said something about the demons of your past always haunt you, and never really go away, and it's true, and here i am, once again, torn into pieces. I'm pretty broken deep inside, but no matter what happens in life, no matter what people throw at you, it always gets better, and what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.

I'll forgive and forget

I'll forgive and forget - Kylie

It's fair to say I forgot about posting this photo, what I don't forget is how much nail varnish i managed to get everywhere. I create makeup looks to learn, I know their far from perfect, but that's just me, I'm a diamond in the rough. If people aren't going to teach me how to do something, I'll make sure I teach myself, and this look taught me that if you want to have black liquid on your fingers, do not use black nail varnish.

And yes I'm in a blue and purple stage of my life, I love the colours together and I've always wanted to use them, and since watching Lady Gagas Edge of Glory video i was just inspired to have a go myself. This photo would probably have worked better without the hand, but I used this particular shot because it brings back memories of creating, and shooting a look whilst on Skype to one of my close friends, although were worlds apart. It's everything a photography should be about, it brings back memories, and this one has been captured forever and now shared with you and others to enjoy, criticise, comment on and really what i hope, to take inspiration from.

I've got a sweet tooth and strawberry youth

I've got a sweet tooth and strawberry youth - Jeffree Star

Summer is nearly over, which yes can be depressing for some, but a blessing for others. When summers over, fashion week begins so hello new clothes!! I think as a whole, this summer fashion, in high street shops, has been awful. High street stores need a new look, fashion has become boring, they need to study harder at fashion shows, and instead of copying designers and making it cheaper and less designed, they need to work how a fashion designer works. They need to watch a fashion show, get ideas and add something else into the mix. It's all very well sticking to one trend season in season out, but their only trends, and fashion rules are meant to be broken, only if you can do a better job of it yourself. You can buy a copied version of a Alexander McQueen scarf in most high street stores right now, I'm sorry but not only is that disrespectful, it's stealing. People need to appreciate fashion more, it's an art form, not something you can just steal and adapt.

So going completely off topic, summers over, so eat as many strawberry as you can, with cream, and ice cream, and maybe some meringue, and if you don't like any of those, then there's something definitely wrong with you!

It's not my fault I look better in her party dress. ... I've been magnetic since I was a baby

It's not my fault I look better in her party dress. ... I've been magnetic since I was a baby - Semi Precious Weapons

It's not my fault that people may look better than others, in reality we all look pretty much the same. It's makeup, or working what you have that sets people aside. A couple of weeks ago a woman was outraged when her employee told her to wear makeup. What puzzles me is why she was, she's representing the company, and representing herself. If you yourself don't wear makeup, is that because you don't wish, or your just lazy. And if you wear makeup are you seen as fake and spend too much time on yourself? At the end of the day your the most important person to yourself, you should take time to look after yourself inside, and outside. If we all were to wear makeup, men and woman, the world would be a much prettier place.

It's all a game of chance they say in wonderland

It's all a game of chance they say in wonderland - McFly

I think everyone in their own little way loves the idea of Alice in Wonderland, a fantasy world filled with adventures and magic. Wonderland has many things in common with ours, just like any other world. There's corruption, good and evil, people out for themselves, and people out for others. It doesn't matter where you live, lifes a game of chance, and you just have to make the most out of a bad situation.
