Perhaps 'One Day'.........

There are billions of human beings across the globe, but it is almost by a miracle that those of us who are looking for the 'One' can meet and subsequently fall in love with this one person amongst billions.......what are the chances of that happening to every single one of us? Perhaps not every single one of us will succeed in finding the 'One', or perhaps some of us may have to fish through much more in the sea of billions than others.......but if and when you think that you have found the 'One' that you love amongst the billions of humans around the globe, what will you choose to do?

Not having read the book and not knowing anything about the story, I went to see the film 'One Day' with my good friend Winney last week. I found the beginning of the film quite slow, and despite liking Ann Hathaway as an actress, I could not get use to her British accent. I appreciated the way the film was shot in a similar manner to 'The Education', which I utterly loved. But half way through the film I finally understood why a simple love story spanning across 20years of life is so captivating for so love that 'One' person regardless of whether you are with that love that 'One' person no matter what life throws at love that 'One' person no matter how many 20 years you have got left.

For how many 10 years does a person really have? To wait a mere 10 years for someone is indeed no easy is a patience fueled by love, and a strength fixed by love. To endure the fear of breaking what gems you already have, and to endure the pain of the choices beyond you that are being made for a whole 10 years, seems almost impossible, let alone a period of 20 years. But it is the length of 20 years that makes this story precious, a reminder that there are some things in life that we will never be able to control, and it makes us question; 'If we knew we only had 20 years, what would we have chosen to do?' Perhaps some would choose not to change a thing and continue with life as it is, or perhaps others may choose to change everything in those 20 years and have a brand new direction in life. For me, the key message of cherishing what you have, no matter how long you have it for, is simply beautiful........."Whatever happens tomorrow, we had today."
So if you are amongst the lucky........please cherish the 'One' you have in your life today with all your heart, fight for them with all undying patience, and love them as though you only have today.

On that note, I would like to leave you with some photos that were taken in a village called Skalite, in Slovakia, on a day when I was inspired by love and perhaps 'One Day'.

Until the next time,

  1. nice blog! thanks for comment.

  2. I have this "One day" book at home, but still didn't start to read it.. I like to read book first, and then see the movie :)

  3. The trailer for 'One Day' looks good but ends up making me feel worse about my own nonexistent love life. The lace on the bottom of the dress is so pretty, and you paired the shoes perfectly with the dress. I also quite like the hanging pearl on your earrings, really cute!

  4. Thanks for all your lovely comments everyone! :)

  5. I saw the trailer for that movie a month ago, I'm not sure if I feel like watching it now, I will wait....

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'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 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 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, …
