To Lee, With Love, Nick

I think everyone needs to watch this.

Lee Alexander McQueen, 1969 – 2010
'This film is my way of speaking about a very unique and important person who changed my life. My desire was to speak in some way about the dark and the light contained within Lee, and within us all.'

"Seeing comes before words. The child looks and recognizes before it can speak."

We never really know the relationship betweeen seeing and knowing. The explanation, the words, never quite fit the view.

And the way we see is effected by what we know or believe.

The key of dreams, Margritte, 1898-1967

And after cameras were invented & the picture is taken, the whole uniqueness is taken away altogether. Meanings are changed & a new ownership evolves.

Think about it...

Look at this picture,

Now look again...

This is the last picture Van Gough painted before he killed himself.

Now the meaning of the picture to you has changed, even if it is only slightly.

And now the true meaning of this painting has changed again, just from me writing this post & from the way I have written it. And so it will again, and again, and again...

Think about what you see & try to find something that is still true.
"And hold on to it."

I Want Lanvin Not Diamonds

Lanvin for H&M
Regent Street

People definitely get vicious when they want something...
Okay so it was hectic, but definitely worth it.

"Imperfection is beauty,
maddness is genius,
its better to be absolutely ridiculous than
absolutely boring!"

Marilyn Monroe


I don't usually blog about myself BUT I found this in a charity shop for £4.

You mean that much to me

And it's hard to show
Gets hectic inside of me
When you go

Can I confess these things to you
Well I don't know
Embedded in my chest
And it hurts to hold

I couldn't spill my heart
My eyes gleam looking in from the dark
I walk out in stormy weather

Hold my words, keep us together
Steady walking but bound to trip
Should release but just tighten my grip

And when the day come
It will have all been fun
We'll talk about it soon

Spot the difference...

Okay so if you are going to practically copy someone else's design, you could at least admit to getting inspiration from them...

You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and he won’t tell you that he loves you, but he loves you. And you feel like you’ve done something terrible, like robbed a liquor store, or swallowed pills, or shoveled yourself a grave in the dirt, and you’re tired. You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and you’re trying not to tell him that you love him, and you’re trying to choke down the feeling, and you’re trembling, but he reaches over and he touches you, like a prayer for which no words exist, and you feel your heart taking root in your body, like you’ve discovered something you don’t even have a name for.

Dove Evolution

I can't decide if what they are doing is a good thing??

One day i'll fly

Not going to get into the size zero debate BUT to be honest I dont believe models should have to be any bigger than they are. This is for various reason but at the end of the day they are a 'clothes hanger.'

Saying that, this shocked me somewhat...These jeans from the Roberto Cavalli s/s 2011collection look like they are literally falling off the model :/

I dont like this. Maybe my opinions on size zero are going to change...
Wow, it was was just the other day I was talking to someone about what we were wearing when we were younger. Trousers with a skirt attached....

Take me back to the oldddskool:

Armani s/s 2011

Not sure I'm as keen on it now though...

Too True

"Let go of a worry that has you concerned. Something is on your mind, or is causing you restless nights by nagging at your unconcious. You don't have to deal with this issue directly. All you really need to do is reassure yourself that everything will be fine, because it will. In fact, many once-aggravating matters in your life are due to improve rather quickly.
If your having trouble letting go of your concerns, symbolically light a candle and think about your problems rising with the smoke and dissipating."

One day a boat rocked in the small fishing port of Corralejo. A tourist from the boat noticed some local fishermen standing by the Quay and commented on the quality of their fish and asked how long it took to catch them.
"Not very long" they answered in unison.
"Why didn't you stay out longer and catch more?" asked the tourist.
The fishermen explained to him that their small catches were sufficient to meet their needs and those of their families.
"But what do you do with the rest of your time?" asked the tourist.
"we sleep late, fish a little, play with our children and take siestas with our wives. In the evenings we go into the village to see our friends, have a few drinks, play the guitar and sing a few songs." answered the fishermen.
"Well now," the tourist interupted, "I have a masters degree from Oxford University and I can help you! You should start by fishing longer everyday, you can then sell the extra fish you catch. With the extra revenue you can buy a bigger boat."
"And after that?" asked the local fisherman.
"With the extra money that the larger boat brings you, you can buy a second one, a third one and so on until you have an entire fleet of trawlers. Instead of selling your fish to the middle man, you can then negotiate directly with the processing plants and maybe even open up your own plant. You can then leave this little village and move to Puerto Del Rosario, Las Palmas or even Madrid! From there you can direct your huge new enterprise."
"How long will all this take?" asked the fishermen.
"Twenty perhaps, twenty five years," replied the tourist.
"And after that?" Enquired one fisherman.
"Afterwards? Well my friend, that's when it really gets interesting," answered the tourist laughing.
"When your buisness gets really big you can start buying and selling stocks and shares and make millions!"
"Millions? Really? And after that?" asked the fishermen.
"After that you'll be able to retire, live in a tiny village by the coast, sleep late, play with your children, catch a few fish, take a siesta with your wife and spend your evenings drinking and enjoying with your friends."
"But that's what we're doing now..." relpied the fishermen.

Know where you're going in life, you may already be there...

"Look at the sky: that is for you. Look at each person's face as you pass on the street: those faces are for you. And the street itself, and the ground under the street, and the ball of fire underneath the ground: all these things are for you. There are as much for you as they are for other people. Remember this when you wake up in the morning and think you have nothing."
