The Witches' Spell

Double, double, toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and owlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth, boil and bubble.
Double, double, toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.
—by William Shakespeare—

Let tonight weave a spell on vampires..ghosties and things that go bump in the night...
Rent your favourite classic and kickstart the creepy evening..

Bubblywishes for the sexiest and spookiest Halloween ever...

Snow Queen

Summertime has always been one of the most tempermental times of the year for me...with the first warm breeze that sweeps into the city, invading it to billow into a full on blast furnace comes change...

Over the years Ive learned to accept the changes that come with this the seasons of the year...passionate..growing...dying...blooming...the transformations that sweep into my life run their course like a flowing river that cannot be stopped..Ive learned not to interfere with mother nature...I go with the flow and no matter how much I want to step in...I understand that although you do you have control over your have no control over what comes into it...when it comes to destiny, it is futile to not accept your limitations.

Rewind to a warm June afternoon..Sitting in one of my regular lunch hangouts absentmindedly twirling a strand of my hair, contemplating upcoming weekends plans and debating over whether I should have pasta or the healthier option of another boring salad, I waited with a classmate for a friend of mine to pick up an acquaintance of hers and join us.

As Sophie Ellis was singing in the background about murder and dancefloors my classmate randomly aknowledged the door with a nod of her head just in time for me to look up and see my friend walk in towards the table with her acquaintance, who swept in like a hurricane towards us...and all of a sudden I felt a completely changing dynamic in the atmosphere.

Dressed head to toe in cream holding a black purse in her hand, her hair swung nonchalantly over her shoulders...I sensed an imposing aura of self assuredness and something else I couldnt seem to place my finger on..something that just rubbed me the wrong way...surrounded by an elusive air of authority..the only touch of defiance...colour, was her red lipstick..I took one look at it and balked...

I was almost 23 years old at the time and was going through a myriad of phases that summer in the aftermath of a metamorphosis that had me examining and questioning myself and life more deeply...
Armed with the arrogance of youth I was in the midst of my quest to find answers for all the confusion I was feeling about what life really meant...I held pure contempt for any notion of the words authority and restraint and was torn in the realm of being in a world that I wanted so much to understand but yet not conform to at the same time..I stepped out of my comfort zone and found myself in foreign territory.
I was going through my rebellious phase.

Worldy and sophisticated, she represented everything I wanted to grow into at the time...She had all the answers, held her own and seemed always in control.

I was fascinated and repelled at the same time...I didnt want to associate with her for fear of being tainted in some way by her worldliness and thus bursting my own bubble...Her reality was too realistic for an idealist like me...I was happy manipulating life in my own thrill-seeking freespirited devil-may-care attitude to life had me believing that the world was my oyster and that I was invinscible.
We disliked each other immediately.

We ended up being the best of friends.
Its been five years since that summer afternoon...Words cant begin to describe what a journey its been...I think in the span of all these years we've lived a million lives...gone through so much and Ive really been blessed to have her constant presence in my life...shes been the wisest person Ive ever mentor and her youth lies an old soul thats never failed to persevere...I thank her for being a sanctuary to my innermost thoughts...for allowing me to do what I needed to without judgement and for never making it easy by giving me the answers...rather she let me find my own way...its been laughter and insanity and fantabulous memories.

Heres to you...a toast of bubbly cheers your way...May this year make you wiser sssexier and closer to your dreams than ever...Happy Birthday NJ xxx

"What is it about the sky that intrigues you?"
"It's about having the posture to hold your chin up, to raise your eyes to something higher, looking up in life."

When you believe-Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston

The world gives you so much...and it takes away even more.
Destiny has the strangest way of bringing you to terms with yourself...the closest you get to something..its not the same.
My spirit exists in my solitude.
I am not my memories...I am my dreams.

Dream of you

"I Feel You" and the second video "Dream Of You" will play consecutively after each other. alone...blast it full on and prepare to lose your senses.

Its really an experience to sit back and let your mind go anywhere it wants without conforming to the lyrics
set by the singer...its creativity unleashed at its best when more than a dozen people can hear the same song and their souls react to it so similarly yet their minds so different...thats the magic of Schiller...

Schiller is a journey...and listening to him is your own personal journey...wherever you subconsciously choose to set your spirit free...the tone of his voice...the powerful music and the background bass all are with you...unlike mainstream lead the music with your thoughts.

Schiller is the brainchild of Christopher Von Deylen, an electronic/new age artist from Berlin.
Soothing new age melodies combine a diverse mix of rythms,cultures and emotions with ethnic instrumentation, exotic vocals and futuristic synthesizers to deliver an exotic blend of world/new age music with fine hints of European trance...embarking you on a journey that sets you free.

This is serenity at its best...Let it's reality engulf you.

Iconic women

Curling in this weekend with Audrey Hepburn and Princess Grace Kelly

My rabbit fur lined Chanels and my Jackie O barrier from the world for my cold winter walks.

lol! PeekaBoo

Afternoon bubbly baths with the vintage classics

I grew up in of the fashion capitals of the world in the presence of one of the most stylish woman of her mother..who taught me all the secrets of how do the French say it..the je' ne sais quoi?
She in turn had inherited her love of elegance and understated glam from my grandmother who still rules in my heart as the true definition of a woman.
The epitome of grace...modesty..elegance and the most inspirational woman that I have ever come across..Im truly blessed to be a part of her legacy...She used to glide around her house in beautiful silk dresses and a soft cloud of perfume that left the faintest trail of a whisper in the wake of her presence as her tall slim figure stood still...She instilled in me an eternal love affair with Chanel and taught me lessons on and men..and the most important of all...How to be a self posessed woman.

I remember last year before she died when she was in the hospital...she looked at me and asked me to fetch her lipstick...and thats how she was.

I really miss her and wish that she would be here now...I need her advice..I need her inspirational facts...Being her firstgrandaughter...she was at the delivery room with mom that day...she picked me up and carried me into my mothers arms...that special bond between us continues to all eternity...This ramadan I sent lots of love and prayers to her...because she still lives in me..everyday.
Frank Sinatra 'Witchcraft' (Play from 00:58 seconds)

I genuinely believe you cannot acquire true class or style...either youre born with it or youre not...Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis...Coco Chanel...Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly..are those who came from different backgrounds but since the early years showed their innate sense of individuality and elegance..I love them because I relate to their style...growing up they inspired me..You have to be passionate about being a feminine creature to be able to exude your personality through your clothes...your poise...the words you choose to articulate...and inject it into your work and the causes you believe in.

Jacqueline Kennedy single-handedly turned the stuffy White House into its best years...she revolutionized fashion in America when first ladies before her did nothing to inspire the country's ladies...anything Jackie would wear the rest of the world followed...and although she was not allowed to wear french couture due to political reasons..she used to sneak the Diors and Chanels in from france..and work with her designer Oleg Cassini to give them a twist and claim them as his....although she wore many of his stunning gowns countless times.
Her resilience and dignity through Kennedys philandering ways throughout their marriage by being her own person as well as how she brought the whole mourning nation together by maintaining her own regal composure during his death all taught me by example the strength and grace of a beautiful soul.

Coco Chanel grew up in an orphanage creative and defiant.She revolutionized the world of fashion forver...Created the iconic Little Black Dress...Her Pearls and costume jewellery and the infamous classic 2.55 named so because of its launch in Feburary 1955...when you hold a bag today you are holding history...the secret pocket in the outside is where Coco used to hide her secret love letters from lovers the and chain reminded her of the chains on the bicycles in the orphanage.
Chanel No.5 revolutionized the world of perfume..when asked where to aplly it...Coco said "a perfume should only be placed where you would like to be kissed"...and When Marilyn Monroe was asked what she wore to bed she breathily replied..."Only Chanel No.5"..

Audrey Hepburn is the quirky part of me...I love her simple carefree spirit to life...her chic sophistication...her simple elegance and her optimism...when told she had cancer she that all? She was a great philanthropist and worked for the International Childrens Relief organization UNICEF passionately...she worked in the field...nursed sick children and reported on the suffering she saw in countries like Somalia.

Grace Kelly, like Jackie and Audrey continued to set the standard exemplifying what a real lady is about...She was an actress in Hollywood and starred in 11 movies before Her husband Prince Rainier of Monaco saw her and married her...She became Princess Grace of Monaco and her dress was simply stunning..She inspired Hermes to create a bag for her that she used to hide her first pregnancy..the Kelly bag is one of the most lusted in the world...its youthful...classy and on my wishlist for 2008 lol.
