I’d be mighty pleased if you could go and “like” my facebook page, when i get to 500 “likers” i’m going to do a free giveaway!
But i’m off to Norway next week from the 1st of March until the 5th; i’m so excited! I’ll be staying in a little town called Grimstad but i’ll also be venturing out to Kristiansand for a couple of days. I’m curious to know what interesting things there are to do that aren’t in Oslo, since i won’t be near the Capital.
I’ve been to Norway before, but never really got to experience much of the culture so i’m looking to change that around this time!
Also, if anyone happens to know of any Norwegian photographers, if you could send me their details that would be beyond wonderful!
Much holiday-based love,
Go take a flying fuck and fuck the fuck off.
I’d give anything to get a good night’s rest without staying awake for hours upon hours worrying and over-analysing every single little thing that could possibly pop into my head. Then, when i finally do fall asleep it’s only to wake up periodically with night terrors or panic attacks or simply my brain being over-active. I have a 14 hour day studying and writing and learning tomorrow, i can’t afford to survive on 3 hours sleep.
For anyone who hasn’t noticed; i have fairly large breasts.
Alongside this, i also have a large bum, an outlandish dress sense and a big personality to match. I’m writing this to express my distaste at a small but considerable population of society who consider all of the above an excuse to belittle and irritate persons such as myself.
When i go out socially, i drink, i dance and i generally have a wonderful time. I speak to a wide variety of different people and enjoy socialising with new and interesting folks. So why is it, when i go out socially, i am subject to a host of thinly-veiled insults from small minded individuals?
Take, for example, last week. I went out on valentines day to a nightclub in Edinburgh with a group of my girlfriends. I wore a large black skirt, lace cardiganm pearl neckalce and a lovely peach and black low-cut basque. Note: this is an adorable outfit and nothing more, whenever i wear this i feel kind of… beautiful. It shows off my hourglass figure and makes me feel good about myself. By wearing this i am not “asking for it” or going out to “be a whore/slag/slut”. So why is it, that young males feel it completely acceptable to grab my breasts in public and make lewd comments? My body is mines, and whomever i agree to share it with- it isn’t the property of drunken arseholes who belittle me and cause me a degree of frustration and irritance. Just because a girl has large breasts doesn’t mean you have the right to grab them freely simply due to the fact that “they’re there”. I would never dream of approaching a man with a large bulge and grabbing his cock- it just isn’t the done thing! Also, by not appreciating this behaviour this does not make me “frigid” or a “tight bitch”. This makes me a self-respecting young woman who can appreciate chivalry and gentlemanliness in a social context.
This has left me pondering: Do these men have sisters, mothers, aunties, cousins? How would they feel if a stranger did this to them? The majority would either lash out at said offender or at least express distaste at the situation. Why is it different if it’s a stranger… does the depersonalization of the subject make the actions acceptable? Ofcourse it fucking doesn’t! If i’m “asking for it” then i will be outright and “ask for it” directly - you’ll know all about it! I shouldn’t be afraid or cautious to wear what makes me happy, what i feel good in, what i enjoy wearing just because of the opinions and actions of foolish young men. I’ll wear what i want because i look fucking good in it!
To conclude, i’d like to here paraphrase a great woman; Aretha Franklin.
All i’m asking, is for a little respect.
Hey! Thank you so much for taking the time to write to me, this is absolutely lovely and has put a big smile on my face. Merci beaucoup for being so lovely, darlin’ :D x0x

For this weeks inspirational post, i’ve decided to focus on one of the greatest minds from the discipline that i study from when i’m not doing makeup, modelling or being a carer; Psychology. I’m currently in my third undergraduate year studying psychology, hoping next year to progress to Honours level and graduate with a 2:1. I find the study of the mind and how other people percieve everyday situations around them to be truly fascinating and one of the primary reasons for this is Philip Zimbardo.
I first read his writings “The Time Paradox” when i was studying in my first year and found it highly relatable, a first with many of the academic texts i had laid my hands on. His writing style is personable and connotes an air of upbeat joviality despite the often harrowing topic content. The Lucifer Effect, exploring the notions of evil in consturcted environments opened my eyes to the world of harsh realities and the idea that evil truly can exist everywhere and anywhere, and as such i am using this for the basis of my honours project next year.
I find Zimbardo an inspiration as he has reignited my love for my field, he has a way of connecting everyone, even laypeople to the constructions of psychology and has one of the most unique and wonderful lecturing styles i’ve ever witnessed… If you don’t believe me you can view an example here:
On top of that, he’s a total silver fox! Me-ow!
One of my primary aims is to read as much as possible; preferably a book per week.
So far this year i have read:
7th January: Skippy Dies- Paul Murray (one of my favourite books of all time!)
14th January: I, Lucifer - Glen Duncan
21st January: Red Dragon - Thomas Harris (another firm favourite!)
28th January: Silence of the Lambs - Thomas Harris
4th February: Modelland - Tyra Banks (ridiculous!)
11th February: Interview with a Vampire - Anne Rice
And at the moment i’m looking for some new book recommendations. On the list of books i have to read yet haven’t i have: The Wasp Factory by Ian Banks, The Secret Holocaust Diaries by George Tomlin, Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen and For Whom the Bell Tolls by Earnest Hemmingway. If anyone could tell me more about these books and others they believe i would enjoy, i would greatly appreciate that!
Much love as always,
That is beyond sweetness, thank you so much honey! x0
I’m so freakin’ nervous! But also excited and hopeful and buzzing with life!
I hope it all goes well!
Sure and sure, just so long as you credit me hon ;) x0
That sad and empty and lonely feeling you get when you finish reading an amazing book. You’re so proud and happy and contented when you first complete it, then you realize that the characters you’ve grown so fond of and plotlines you’ve followed intently are now done and dusted. Too much melancholy for my liking!
