BBQ in the Sun

On Friday night we had a little family Bbq as the weather has been really nice for the past week. So early Friday morning my dad headed to B&Q to buy a BBQ and my mum and I headed to Asda to buy all the BBQ food. So once the family had arrived, the drinks had been poured and my dad had manned the BBQ we all tucked in to delicious BBQ food and nana's potato salad.

One Quote is never enough

I thought I'd do a little post on a few of my favourite quotes after seeing inspiration from another blog I thought it would be a fun idea. Most are taken from Tv Shows or Films others are anonymous some are inspiring words from inspiring people.

"One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years" 
                                                                                                                        - Tom Wolfe 

I love this one as I realised how true it can be as soon as we arrived in New York I felt like I belonged there and that one day I could call it home.

" Believe in your dreams, no matter how impossible they seem" 
                                                                                              - Walt Disney 

I think this one is true to me because my dream is too go to the US and work in Broadcast Journalism and just now that seems impossible but hopefully one day it can come true.

"The problem with fairytales is that they set a girl up for disappointment... But I'll confess every once in a while every girl craves her fairytale ending"  

This one is from Gossip Girl and its true I'm one of those girls who has watched fairytales ever since I was a little girl and its true what it says every girl looks for her fairytale ending.

"Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts" 
                                                                                                                        - Albert Einstein 

I loved this quote because I feel like whenever I tell people that I would love to work in Broadcast Journalism I feel like I have to  say "I know it sounds stupid but thats what I want to do" I think the reason I automatically go to that response is because some people keep putting me down with the facts of how I can't do that or its not possiable for me to do it, and this quote made me realise to never give up on that dream.

"Maybe Daydreams can come true" 
                                     - Neal Caffrey 

This ones from White Collar and from none other than Neal Caffrey who's character is an known daydreamer.

"If you want a happy ending, that depends of course on where you stop your story" 
                                                                                                  - Orson Wells 

This quote is orignally by Orson Wells but I first heard it on White Collar from my favourite TV  Bromance (with exception to Joey and Chandler) Neal Caffrey and Mozzie, and it has got to be my favourite quote of all time.  It kind of sends the message if you want to be happy you have to choses what makes you happy and you get to choose your own ending.

 I would love to here your favourite quotes!

Obsession Kors

Its taken me awhile to write this post as I didn't want it just to be all about my Michael Kors purchases but more about my Obsession on Michael Kors Fashion and Accessories. I'm sitting here with a cup of tea in my Matt Bomer cup ( yeah i have once seen here ) and watching Mad Men (I'm a little obsessed with this show )  scratching my brain for inspiration and I still don't know what to write.

Lets start with my Collection of Michael Kors then I'll get onto his dresses and other Pieces which I love but don't have in my collection but dream that one day I might! My first Kors purchase was my Jet Set Travel Tote which I was never without. I even took it on my holiday to the states and it fast became a travel Essential. My second purchase was my Michael Kors Jet Set Saffiano Continental wallet, which I purchased in the Michael Kors store in New York. I then got a Michael Kors t-shirt for my christmas, I then went onto purchase my baby,my Michael Kors Selma tote (which can also be seen here)  in January after saving up for months. Since then I've added a few other items to my collection one being a set of nail varnish in  Sensation and Scandal  and my most recent Michael Kors purchase was my Michael Kors iPad Sleeve. I have a lot more of Michael Kors accessories rather then clothes but that doesn't mean I don't love his clothes. 

First off this black and grey Selma tote which I first seen in a Michael Kors store in Santa Monica and fell in love with, Oringinally this is the one I would of loved to have but when I was looking to purchase one back home in the Uk I couldn't find any anywhere. I was very sad about that but hopefully I might be able to add it too my collection one day. 

Michael Kors offers a luxury lifestyle that most women can afford and want to wear because they see celebrities such as Miranda Kerr and Blake Lively wear his collection. This was seen during New York Fashion Week where we seen Blake Lively and a handful of other fashionestias sporting his new collection and sitting front row at his shows. We've also seen throughout the Red Carpets this award season as well as in the past many celebrities choosing to wear Michael Kors couture gowns on the Red Carpets. 

 Theses exquisite Black and Coloured peplum dresses are my favourite I would love to be styled in one of these. I love the vibrant neon colours which are highlighted by the black of the dress. Karlie Kloss models this sparkly number perfectly, with the black highlight the sparkly adding that extra glam to the runway.

 This is one of my favourite pieces from his spring 2014 collection. I love the how the little green cardigan compliments the nude and green two piece outfit.

To wear one of his custom couture gowns (especially the coloured peplum dresses) would be a dream come true. Maybe one day I will be lucky enough to be styled in a Michael Kors gown or sit front row at one of his shows. For now I will just have to dream and save up for my next Michael Kors Purchase.

Bad Neighbours

Last week me and my mum went to see Zac Efron's new movie Bad Neighbours. A film about a couple who are new parents missing the fun they used to have before the became parents, when a frat house moves in next door. Things start off well between the neighbours the couple played by Seth Rogan and Rose Byrne enjoy having young neighbours it takes them back to their youth and stops them from feeling a boring couple with a baby, but then after countless noisy nights they phone the police. This then offends Teddy played by Zac Efron the leader of the frat house who becomes obsessed with messing with his neighbours thus leading to a variety of hilarious antics from each house trying to win against their neighbours.

I've read a lot of bad reviews for this film and maybe its just me but I really enjoyed it. I didn't laugh as much as I expected too considering how funny the trailer was, with a lot of the good scenes being featured in the trailer. But although many x-rated scenes it was still an enjoyable comedy film. It was good to see Zac Efron in something different from his usual films to show how talented he is. Seth Rogan and Rose Byrne were hilarious and very relatable as a couple trying to hold onto people they once were. Another added bonus was how many times Zac Efron is shirtless in the movie another highlight of the film that will make you want to see it even more.

Take a look at the Trailer here

Met Gala Dream

As someone who is intrested more in entertainment news and big events that many A-Listers attend rather than having a big knowledge of fashion couture - but I'm learning- that doesn't mean I don't love finding out who wore what on the red carpet. Now this years Met Gala was no exception and it was the first time I was really intrested in the fashion at this year Met Gala rather than who was in attendance. But don't get me wrong I loved seeing my favourite stars walking the red stairs and I hope to one day be in attendance myself.

One of my favourite styles of the night was Blake Lively her dress was breathtaking she looked gorgeous and fitted the theme perfectly. She channelled old hollywood glamour in a way only she could from her hair, her make up , her dress and her arm candy husband Ryan Reynolds they made one beautiful pair.

My next favourite of the night surprisingly was Kim Kardashian her beautiful yet sexy Lanvin Gown. I have been loving Kim Kardashian's style lately and this look was another favourite of mine.

How can I do a post about the Met Gala and not mention Sarah Jessica Parker, she was a vision in Oscar de la Renta. The dress was elegant and exquisite - when looking up exquisite it stated " carefully selected choice: accurate marked by flawless craftmanship or by beautiful ingenious, delicate, marked with subtile understanding or deep sensitivity" I thought this summed up Parkers dress perfectly as the dress was made for her and how she asked Oscar de la Renta to sign his name on a dress as a way of honouring him in Scarlett making this dress a flawless creation.

There are too many favourites from the night such as Emma Stone, Victoria Beckham, Hayden Panettiere, Karolina Kurkova, Beyonce, Leighton Meester, Rachel McAdams the list is endless.

Now one for the guys the Met Gala was not just filled with beautiful gowns but also with beautiful men in tuxedos and bow ties. One handsome man in attendance was my favourite Matt Bomer looking as handsome as ever in Calvin Klein. Although Matt Bomer looked just as dashing as ever there were a few other handsome attendees Bradley Cooper, David Beckham and how can I not mention the wacky outfits of Neil Patrick Harris and David Burka. 

As much as I love seeing the photos of the attendees arriving at the Met Gala I think I love seeing the snaps from inside the Gala seeing all our favourite stars have fun! How cute is the photo of Matt Bomer and Olivia Munn which is too cute not to share! 

I hope one day I have the pleasure of attending the Met Gala ah a girl can dream!
