Don’t wait for spring to roll around to let your hair loose and be flirty with floral. An emerging trend is pretty flower hair clips that are bound to give you a glow and make heads turn. Whether you choose a classic rose, orchid or a dahlia give your day or evening out fit that extra oomph by adorning a flower in your hair. Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders have long worn these and depending on which side you wear them determines your marital status.
Typically i never used to wear any accessories in my hair but as soon as i wear a flower it seems my whole personality changes and i smile a whole lot more. Its simple don’t over accessorize keep it simple and wear a classic dress or ensemble, add a flower clip and voila……simplistic glam! You’ll find celebrities like Gwen Stefani and Dita Von Teese rocking this look from time to time.
Whilst surfing the internet i found a great website www.latebloomerboutique.com which has a beautiful range of hair clips. Locally you can find some at Mandee’s or Forever 21 and many other great little boutiques in New York. I hope to see many of you looking pretty as a flower this spring 🙂
So what do two single girls do on Valentine’s Day….go see a chick flick!! The movie ‘He’s just not that into you’ did not disappoint and left me analysing all my past relationships and dating patterns. My dating experiences would have many of you in fits of laughter…..but i definitely learnt alot about men and the way they think. Knowing what i know still doesn’t stop me from making bad choices or lusting after the ‘wrong’ guy but that’s life a myriad of adventures. Many of us can relate to GG optimistic and somewhat naive when it comes to the opposite sex. But she represents the core essence of the average person looking to find happiness and we see a little or alot of ourselves in her. One thing i realised was that no matter the circumstance we always know deep down ‘whats up’!! The reality is most times we delude ourselves and forget to listen to what our head is telling us….he’s just not that into you. If you think about it if he’s not calling you he really doesn’t want to talk to you, he’s really not ‘busy’….he’s just too busy for you. Dating and the pursuit of love is never easy but remember we all find our way eventually. I once asked my guru why there is pain and his response was too suffer the heart to love more freely. As human beings we are all fallible and what makes us human is that we feel….
My friend snapped these four men a few days ago in downtown nyc…..my first thought Kid ‘n’ Play are back!!! Then reality set in and i was thinking oh my goodness what were they thinking….only in New York. Regardless whether i think these men are stuck in a time warp or redefining fashion on their own terms, i love their attitude and i embrace their unique style.
With Valentine’s day fast approaching the topic of love has been on my mind. For all the years i have walked this earth i have never had one date or special moment on V day. Am i mad…upset… well to be honest for the longest time i felt like i had missed out on something. Then i realised many years ago that I’d rather get a poem, a gift or a declaration of love any other day than V day…it would mean more. February 14th has somewhat become commercialised and people forget that sometimes it’s the simple things we do to show we care that matter most. But for those that are celebrating this occasion and are stuck for ideas here are a few suggestions to show that special someone you care….
* Name a star after them
* Write a poem
* Compile a CD of love songs
* Picnic at sunrise or sunset at a secluded location
* Wake them up in the morning with a simple ‘I LOVE YOU’
All around the world people are feeling the effects of the downturn in the economy and jobs are lost every hour. To be brutally honest i have never before taken notice of the state of the economy in my country Australia, let alone the rest of the world. But this time I can’t help but see the effects and hear it on the news as well as on the streets. People are concerned and struggling to survive day to day with just lint in their pockets and can only hope for a brighter future.
In New York city you can feel and see the concern people have for their future and it seems like a cloud is hanging over everyone’s heads. I’m especially worried for the homeless people this winter as it’s one of the coldest in a long time, with no money, food and shelter how will they survive if at all? Although i have little myself i try to give one person some change everyday or do a good deed, nothing is ever too little or too much if you give with an open heart.
You may not be able to change the world but you can make a difference with small steps. So i ask you to pass on some kindness next time you see a person in need, it could even be giving up your seat on the bus. Do something everyday and i guarantee not only will you warm someones heart but you will serve your soul. Pay it forward everyone let’s try to help one another through these tough times and when we get through it the sun will shine again for ALL.

One thing that is constant in life is….change and people always ask me why i consider myself a chameleon? Well the honest answer is that as we shed our skin layer by layer our colors change and i as a person love my colors. To me being a chameleon is about self discovery and embracing the many souls,hearts and colors we all have.
