Lose your dream, find your destiny.....


Life is a funny thing. Some people believe that each person has a destiny, whilst others may believe you make your life through dreams.

To me though, destiny and dreams are each an edge of the same double edged sword. It can bring you the feeling of triumph in a battle but yet it can also cut you with sorrow. With the belief in destiny and the hope of a dream, one is still bound and there is no escape within a realm of conflict, challenges and fears.

So where does happiness lie? Is it in the moment of triumph, or in the courage of struggling before success, or the step you have faltered, or the moment you realise who you truly are? Is it in destiny or is it in dreams? Is it when you laugh or is it when you cry?

Each has their own interpretation of happiness. Red might see it as laughing hysterically. Blue might see it as a moment of stillness. Pink might see it as holding hands with the love of her life. Yellow might see it as a sunny day. Purple might see it as roses, cakes and ice cream. Black might see it as being promoted at work. White might see it as giving some blood to save others.

So what is your happiness?

In the words of motivational speaker Tony Robbins; "Lose your dream, find your destiny!" Sometimes where you have set out to go to, might not be where you end up. It is the journey that counts........and I am still on that journey of course. Whether you believe in destiny or dreams, I hope you will find you way and realise your true happiness. Have a lovely Sunday everyone.

How-To: Do 1930s to 1950s....a Vintage inspired twist to glitz-up your evening look!

With only three days to go before my vintage themed birthday do.....it's all getting a little exciting and I am still finalising my 1920s Great Gatsby inspired look in my head! So I thought it might be helpful to think about building other vintage looks too...just in case any of you lovely darlings are attending a vintage party or in need of any inspiration!

To me, the real glitz and glam began in the 1920s but evolved into a deeper feminine state towards the 1930s....which carried on through to the 1950s because of an addictive fascination with the glamorous silver screen. The 1930s was not a trouble free decade by any means, as the Great Depression and WW2 began broiling in the backdrop of society. But with all the unrest came an opportunity for many to sooth their sores in the world of cinema.....and so the age of the silver screen sirens began captivating the world! There were shifts in day wear becoming more practical as WW2 shook the world and fashion seemed to have halted f…

Qipao Love: Part 5 ~ How-To choose and wear a Qipao (Cheongsam) that will love your frame!

A little warning is probably in order my darlings...as this will be a rather comprehensive How-To Qipao post! I will try to incorporate my own knowledge as well as what I researched through time, to create a rough but helpful guide for ladies who might want to attempt wearing the Qipao! Why do I say attempt? In today's fast paced life the Qipao has become a rather occasional dress even for a faithful admirer like me and I can understand why it might not be the most popular attire in the world, but I also know that many ladies who admire the Qipao might resist the idea of wearing it because of different barriers. Being a lover of the Qipao myself...trust me I know the fearful qualms and muffin top resistance to wearing a Qipao all too well.....whether it is a matter of figure, budget, impression, style, occasion, look or finding the excuse to wear a Qipao, I hope to be able to offer some help towards a solution and ask that you forgive me if I am too long winded. The Qipao really i…

How-To: Build a 1920s inspired Great Gatsby look!

With my birthday coming up in a little more than two weeks, and having decided on a vintage themed party, it is time to put my vintage thinking headband on! Last year I had fun dressing up as a 1940s inspired Pin Up girl, and this year I have decided to go a little further back in time.....yes my darlings....we will be roaring in a 1920s glitzy Great Gatsby affair!

The 1920s has been a favourite decade of mine for quite some time.....admittedly the decadence of the glittering heavily beaded long gowns, the extravagantly flirty ostrich feathers and the shiny Art Deco gem-stoned pieces might have something to do with it! It was true that the roaring 20s was a rebirth period for many because of the survival of WW1, so living every new day as free, happy and extravagant as possible became the ideal dream. With more women embracing liberation by replacing restrictive corsets with loose flowing dresses that revealed more flesh than ever before, a period embracing individuality, creativity, …
