2 years

by: Christina Rossetti

EMEMBER me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

Alexandre Birman electric green heels

As I was casually scrolling through the shoes on net-a-porter, I did not think for one moment I would take a second look at these shoes and actually end up really liking them! Somehow though I saw them and decided to click on them. At first i wasn't too sure, its not a colour I would normally go for and although I like the snake skin print they are very bright! However, since then these shoes have really grown on me. Although they are nice they are £480 so unless you have money to splash, they are probably not the best thing to invest in. The heels are 14cm/5.5 inches high with a platform of 4cm/1.5 inches.

RIP Whitney Houston

I have decided to write only a few words for this amazing and talented lady as I think just watching her speaks louder than anything anybody could write.
She was one of the greatest singers of all time. She always had such emotion and power ever time she sang and her songs will most definatley live on! Of course we cannot forget her acting talent in many television, commercials and film roles and she won many awards in her life which total up to over 400 for her career in acting and music.
I've chosen this song because it makes you feel like you want to get up and dance with her and I think we should remember her for what she did rather than how she died.
Rest in peace. My thoughts are with all her family and friends at this very difficult time.

Some designer 'window' shopping, not that I can afford it...

Isn't this just the cutest?!
It is by
Gucci and I found it on net-a-porter.
The majority of the dog is made up of the well know canvas thats iconic to Gucci and is also embellished with suede and sequins. The tag on the dogs collor also have 'Gucci' engraved into it.
This cute pug key chain is £120 but who wouldnt want it!
This item's measurements are:
•Width 3" / 8.5cm
•Height 7" / 19cm
•Depth 0" / 1cm

*Photos are not mine, I got them off the net-a-porter website*
*Most of this infomation has also come from the same

 I absolutely love this top by Alexander McQueen, he is incredibly well know for the skull prints he has done but I love how he has done this one so delicately and the pale washed out colours he has used. It is £155 and I would definitely buy this if i had the money!
This leather Ipad case is also by Alexander McQueen as you can tell by the skull charm on the strap at the top. The gold skull has amber Swarovski crystal eyes and although it is very simple and plain it is something that would definitely make you and your Ipad stand out! Price is £215
