Hello, Bonjour, Konnichiwa, Hola! March/April Catch Up

Image

So for this little post I thought that I would sum up the beginning of this month & last month in a little collage because it’s cute,
I love to see little collages on other’s blogs because I like to see the little photo’s they choose and what they represent!

So from top left going right we have 1. Me in glasses! I went to the opticians and I found out I need glasses for reading  2. Me and my partner went for a walk around the local park and he brought me a portion of traditional chips (The kind you get at the seaside! which I love love love!) so that was super nice 3. A really lovely quote that I need to start listening to because I worry to much over the past and to much over the future 4. A little photo of me and my partner messing around 5. A photo of a ladybird I took whilst I was walking home 6. Daffodils! I love them especially because they’re all in bloom this time of year 7. A photo from my partner’s 20th birthday! 8. Another little picture of the park (Excuse the watermark, I’m working on it!) that we walk around sometimes for a nice break of fresh air and finally 9. NANDO’S! we went to nando’s for my partners birthday and it was amazing as usual, I really love nando’s particularly the chicken wrap! 🙂

So that’s my little update, how have you all been? Is there anything you like specifically in this post then let me know in the comments 🙂

What’s lurking in the water? Sharks?

The Western Australia shark cull has widely been spoken about, debated, gained media coverage and questioned inevitably sparking quite the debate worldwide, some joyous and others disgusted.

It is understandable that some agree to the killing spree of sharks along the Western Australian Coast and other parts of Australia due to the recent and frequent deaths. However it is also understandable there are mass protests against this quite simply barbaric way of dealing with things.

In my opinion and mine solely I believe that killing an already threatened species won’t make much of a change except in the ecosystem because whether we like it or not even the dangerous, ugly & weird animals are all needed to do their part and have a place in this world. After all we have came a long way, stopping finning in most countries and other harmful issues to marine life are rather big achievements compared to previous centuries but now it seems all of that has been temporarily disregarded.

Understandably some people are pro shark culling and that is purely because they see sharks as killing machines, ruthless through and through but I think if more people were shown true statistics (see if there are any info-graphics, they’re a fun way to learn stats!) then a majority would be less resentful of sharks but evidentially this wouldn’t stop shark attacks obviously, so it is imperative to provide the public and those interested with the proper information and preventative measures of avoiding a shark attack. Further to the previous point another reason a proportion of people are pro shark culling is because of the recent and tragic deaths or attacks on those within the sea, it is however deeply saddening whenever someone passes no matter what the cause.

Sharks are an amazingly strong, agile apex marine predator and are my favourite animal (who would’ve guessed! :p) so I just thought I’d throw in a little blog post because of the current situation regarding sharks 🙂

Hope you enjoyed reading it and remember it’s just my opinion! 🙂

Changes, changes, changes!

So I haven’t really wrote a blog post in quite a while and that’s down to a lot of factors like university and also my inability to work out where I want my blog to go from here (Sigh). Many of you may know that I started blogging back around April last year and it is something I quite enjoy doing, I have gained some lovely followers and on top of that I find blogging to be quite fun! But this year I would like my blog to go in a different direction, before my blog was about fashion, beauty and such but now I would really like to move to an all round blog where I do not have to just post one specific genre of posts and I get to post about everything and anything from places I may travel, food I cook or try, life goals and inspirations, general chit chat and everything else you can think of because I think it will be quite a good boost for my blog and myself to be able to feel free to write about anything I like and that’s what blogging is about in the end 🙂

So this post is just to let you all know, I wont strictly be a fashion/beauty blog anymore although I will still do some fashion and beauty inspired posts among many others that are to come 🙂

I hope you all stick around to see this year with me!

Style Icon: Helena Bonham Carter

Okay so roughly a week ago I picked up the latest issue of Vogue July 2013 and this issue was based around the idea of being ageless, timeless and original. Much to my contentment this months issue had the wonderfully quirky Helena Bonham Carter on its cover! Now if you are unsure who this lady is, let me just give you a nudge in the right direction because she is one of the most prolific actresses and style icons of our time.

Starring in works such as Sweeney Todd (One of my favourite films!), Harry Potter and Les Miserables she is quite well known worldwide. But thinking of her style retrospectively it is clear to see that she has a very quirky and slightly strange sense of style (Not saying that’s a bad thing!) bright clothes and outrageously thrown together accessories and shoes seem to work well for Helena making her style sense unique and different but yet refreshing.

With that in mind, if you have a chance you should pick up the latest issue of Vogue to see her photoshoot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot as it really is quite something 🙂
