Guilty Pleasure


So I have decided to make my blogging a regimental staple in my life. So once a week hopefully each Thursday I will have a 'Guilty Pleasure' which will be something I am lusting over or want to admit looking at!!!

So to kick this sector of my blog off I went to Brent Cross last week and was having a wonder around Fenwick store and stumbled into All Saints.. Not a shop I usually look in if I'm honest, everything seems to be either made with a cowl neck or excess fabric both of which I'm not overly keen on!!

So anyway I was wondering around when I came across them gem of a find amongst the layers of fabrics. This skirt is a really statement piece and the photo really doesn't do it justice. It is hand embellished to create the wonderful 'tribal' design.

Of course the down side is that this skirt sets you back a little at £165. However I really do think it's one of those garments that could be worn time and time again guaranteed to back an impact every time.

This is the link if you want to browse your self:|coral/wsk006-2479
It also comes in a darker colour way.

Please do let me know what you think of this skirt and whether it is worth the investment, I am not looking to purchase it anytime soon but I may be looking for it onEbay when it's no longer in the shops.

Also just a quick mention about an online site I found today whilst browsing its called: it really is worth a look if your looking for something quirky!!

Until next time keep shopping!! x

Russell Brand Reveals All..

I am a big fan of Piers Morgan's Life Stories show and last night I indulged in his latest instalment that featured Russell Brand.

I have always been curious as to Russell's outlandish lifestyle and how he got where he is today and I was intrigued to find his lack of father figure is partly to blame for his wild lifestyle. I never really pondered the thought of how a lack of parenting could affect your life so much, but I guess it's your parents who help mould you into the person you become. And then its up to you and the paths you choose that depend on where you end up in life.

Russell was adamant that he was different from a young age, he was rebellious and found himself breaking the law a lot. I also didn't realise he was tee total as well as drug free now living a 'clean' lifestyle. He almost seems to have done a full circle in terms of lifestyle from being a drug addict to being happily married. But it made me question whether someone can truly change....

Yes he seems to have got the drug use and alcohol abuse out of his system but who's to say it actually ever leaves your system... If you've been inclined to go there before, what will stop you revisiting it, in those moments in life when it all gets too much or you find out devastating news. As a former addict will you always be walking a tightrope of temptation avoiding stumbling if not falling off all together...

So I wonder what you think, is being 'clean' a life long cure or will you find yourself revisiting your guilty habits.

What do you think? I am curious to know other peoples thoughts about this.
