Me too!

I saw this on Post Secret today. I LOVE The Little Mermaid. And I am so excited there is a new the Little Mermaid DVD out. Ariel is still my favourite princess. Tee hee...

Prixie wears

PRADA! Uh-huh - I. Bought. A. Black. Prada.Pencil. Skirt. I cannot believe I got a label but I seen this bargain and had had to take it. It seems so frivolous, especially at this time when South Africa is in a politically sticky situation (FYI: The president was asked by the ruling party to resign and we now have an interim president till next year's national elections) and the world economy is in the red (unless you live under a rock, no FYI needed here). But a gal has to cheer herself up...even if it is for the short term solution.

Signs to change the world

Most people on the tubes, buses and trains are always plugged into their MP3 players. I seen this funny T-shirt and had to take a pic. Now whenever I seen people plugged in I think "They pood" or even when I am plugged in...Not a very pretty image, but funny nonetheless.

The change people want to see in the world?

On a serious note, my friend emailed me this link about Animal Cruelty in China. Reading the description made me crinch inside, so much so I could not watch the video. Animals hold a special and dear place in my heart. In contrast to man kind, they do not cheat, lie, pollute, exploit and every other vile habit man has. They are good, pure and innocent. Who are we to exploit them for every human need like entertainment, experimentation, sustenance? We have a right to life, so do they.

Current addictions

It's a game of tag again, thanks to Being Brazen this time around. Even though I am not too sure how I feel about this aspect of blogging at least it gets one thinking...especially about ones self, since most tags are to reveal certain things about yourself. As in this case, I need to bare five of my current addictions.

1. Chocolate: It's current and omnipresent. Need I say more?
2. Coats: I adore winter fashion. And what better place to come to than the UK for glorious, gorgeous coats.
3. Boots: Refer to above.
4. Charity shops: I love the bargains you can find. And being able to get a few good brands at a fraction fraction fraction of the cost, I'm smiling all the time. It is also the best place to find vintage items.
5. Cooking: I've always found it relaxing. Now that I stay on my own, I find myself in the kitchen more often. Even though my S.O is not here to share my meals with me, my house mates, M1 and M2 enjoy it and that makes me happy too. I realised I love to feed people.
6. Burning fragrant oils: I adore these oil burners and I find myself buying lovely scents - mainly vanilla though.

So who is to be tagged? Hmmm, let me see:
1. Jo
2. Fatima (Welcome back BTW!)
3. Nooj

And the rules are:
What you need to do:
*Post at least five current addictions (with some details please).
*Mention the person who started this game of tag (i.e Being Brazen) and also the person who just tagged you.
*Type your post with the heading "Current addictions".
*Tag at least two people and pass on the above rules.

Enjoy and think away!

Praneet Daya

We may have not seen a lot of each other. You may have called me witch because I only wore black when I was in high school. When we did see each other, you gave me beans. In that way you were more of a brother than a cousin. And now you are gone. You know, you were the first person I really remember seeing as a baby, the first person I seen grow up in front of me. I dreamt of you months ago, showing me the scar on your head from the operation. We were laughing cos the worst was over. Now the worst is reality. And we will all miss you. And right now, I do believe God wanted you to be with Him because of the person you are. It is not the tumour that took you, it is God. As you ascend to the stars, the night sky will be made all the more brighter. Just as this life was made brighter with you in it.
