New Years Resolutions? Naaah...

Yes, I know, it took me a while to wake up this year. What can I say, I'm a taurus, I start everything slower, but when I do, get out of my mf way ! :))

I don't have New Years Resolutions. Weir, ah. Why? Because I don't find them any different that normal resolutions. I have plans, a list of things I want to do, but not because it is new year, but because I want to do that shit.

In no particular order:
1. I want to dye my hair reddish. Not crazy red, but a natural tone. Something like this:

from here.

2. Made my bucket list and it is quite looong :S I will share it with you one of these days :)
3. Go to the gym to loose about 10 kg. The goal is not exactly to loose weight, cause I am not fat for my height, but to have firm muscles, which will add up with about 10 kg's less than I have now.
4. I read a saying one of these days : "sometimes you just have to be your own here and save yourself", so I need to kick off my lazy shoes and put on my hero shoes :)
...and so on.

Here are a few things worth to see and listen, hope you enjoy.

a. Loved watching Tom Ford's perfectionism in action:

b. Emeli Sande - Heaven, just beautiful, very lyrical.

c. Nneka - Heartbeat, a powerful message.

d. Carpark North - Burn It, a bit of northern rock ;)

e. A beautiful Asian story made movie, The Promise (2005), watch it if you get the chance.

f. "The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever." from where do you think it is? Yepp, The Notebook from 2004.

g. I ADOOOORE this necklace. Unfortunately it is already sold, but maybe I can make something similar for myself ;)

h. I find this beautiful :

i. A pretty blog from a Moldavian girl living in Romania called Rock & Roses. Oh these "Russian" chicks have a sense of style like no other.

j. Last, but not least, here is a perfect instruction video on "How to Cook the Perfect Steakhouse Filet" from 20 Something Cupcakes. It is quite easy and very yummy!

k. oh, oh, and not to forget, you need to watch (if you get the chance) "A Woman of Substance" and "Hold the Dream". One great story (these are two mini series) about what a determined woman can do and that there is no "can't" just "won't".


My Mamma Said...

... and still does thankfully:)

"You are beautiful no matter what you put on your self, so don't worry about it. Beautiful people are beautiful no matter how they are dresses up."

...because beauty, confidence and style shines from within, i might add, it doesn't come from the clothes you wear.

There is an old saying "clothes make the man", but those times are gone, so live in this century not one that ended years ago.
