By acting bravely we become brave; not the other way round.

Nothing good and nothing bad lasts forever.

Treat every day as if it's your last. One day it will be.

It's no use dreaming of a perfect future or regretting a troubled past. It's only today that counts...so live it like it might be your last.

Never eat anything bigger than your head.

If you have to buy umbrellas or gloves, buy cheap ones; they are designed to be lost, or left behind on the bus within a week of purchase.

The small things really do count - don't underestimate the value of small kindnesses

If you think you might be about to be sick, you are about to be sick: run to the loo. If you feel you might be about to faint, you will unless you drop to the floor immediately.

Don't waste time searching for the meaning of life; the only meaning life has is the one we give it, so create your own meaning.

Completely lazy or really handy eyeshadow?

So a company in America called ColourOn have released an eyeshadow you simply peel on to your eyelid and your left with immaculate and sometimes intricate designs

"These are single-use, hygienic, hypoallergenic applicators that require no makeup skills, no brushes or secondary applicators. Imagine an eye shadow that is waterproof, crease-proof, and long-wearing that transfers to the eyelid with just a touch. The result is nothing short of amazing: A professional, flawless look every time."

I think these are amazing if you have a really big party planned or a fashion shoot but I quite like experimenting with my make up.

I have been quite tempted by a few of them though for big over the top nights out.

Alexander McQueen

One of my favourite Designers...ever since I stepped into Selfridges many a years ago and spotted a gorgeous collection of skull accessories covered in crystals I've been in Love with this mans collections.

My three favourite accessories!


Absolutely stunning metal work pattern, very classic with a macabre edge with the skull top.

Anyone that knows me, knows my major love for knuckledusters.
So for me this is the ultimate bag, its black, it is jeweled, has a skull in the detail and the handle is a knuckleduster...if the price tag for this wasn't in the thousands this bad boy would be mine!

And last but not least this gorgeous skull bracelet, yes there may be many a braclets like this knocking round camden and dodgy shops but they would'nt look half as well made and exquisite

Joshua Hoffine

Joshua Hoffine is one of my favourite photographers.

His skill for set designs, amazing costumes, love for horror and his skill behind the camera makes his photos stand out. He only uses friends and family in the photos and all for free and he only uses photoshop to clean up the image and adjusting colour for his prints.
