This commercial is funny, and has nothing to do with Brad Pitt’s long hair or his almost hippie mustache, it’s the level of seriousness and the nonsense of his words. I still don’t get what all this is suppose to mean and I would have never known it was a perfume commercial if it wasn’t for the ending.
If anyone could explain this it would be Natalie Tran.
Love Natalie Tran, she makes things funny.
And I’m still laughing at Brad Pitt in Chanel N°5

It’s been awhile, a loooooong while. I don’t really have an excuse except that I’ve been distracted by many things. One of these things is that I finally chose a school that I think will give me the education I need to pursue a career in Fashion. I recently received a letter from the college that I applied to and I was accepted in the Bachelor of Commerce and Bussiness Fashion Management Degree program starting in September 2013!!
I am highly excited and tired right now to write anything else. . .
I don’t even know this is pretty much useless. . . On the good side I made hearts with leopard prints in them.
**What’s been written here is now a blank, I apologize.
I recently got an email from a subscriber who said “How do you wear a shirt?” I was a little surprised because I would have never thought someone would ask me a question about styling, considering that my style is a bit on the not-so-trendy side.
Well since you asked Mr. SubscriberDude here it is.
Step 1: Find a shirt that you like (Make sure it is ironed and clean)
Step 2: Put it on (Preferably with pants or shorts)
Well there you have it, I hope you enjoyed this How to, I’m thinking of writing more of these let me know if you liked it.
In all seriousness though, I am not the type of person who would write up ‘How to’ posts. I know they garner up a lot of hits and followers but I don’t like writing these types of post, and I think it has to do mainly with the fact that there are already so much post like this that it won’t be as original as I hope it would be. I would like to share my own opinions and own ways of doing ‘How To’ type of post but it probably won’t be about how to wear something.
Revenge Wears Prada – The Devil Returns
It’s been 10 years since the masterpiece known as The Devil Wears Prada was released, and finally Lauren Weisberger has written a sequel, Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns. I am so excited for the release of this book, The Devil Wears Prada is one of my favorite books, in fact I had a small obsession with the movie (literally remember every line), and I am so sorry to say this but if the sequel was as good as the first, it will probably kick down my Harry Potter obsession to 2nd place.
There’s something about the movie and book, and Meryl Steeps Portrayal of Miranda Priestly that got me so into the movie, and I think it has to do with the fact that it’s how I imagine my job would be like if I were to intern at a Fashion magazine. The fabulous life of working at a major Fashion magazine seems far off from my persona, I probably won’t fit in with the fashion obsessed girls and their Gucci’s, Louis, and Prada’s. Watching the movie many times, I noticed the life lessons. The Devil Wears Prada showed me that Fashion changes so fast, and moves so fast that choices become narrowed down to Yes’s and No’s and the inevitable change you will go through being in an industry such as Fashion. Andrea went from being Andrea to being the close mini-me of Miranda Priestly, but the movie also thought me that you can escape all of that like how Andrea did in the movie, and that you don’t have to be what you don’t want to be.
This story is a masterpiece, and I am excited for The Revenge Wears Prada which by the way will be released this summer! And hopefully a sequel to the movie with the amazing Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway!!
I did some Spring Cleaning! My blog was a dirty, dirty blog. . . basically it had a lot of issues with everything. For some odd reason the design that I had for my previous theme created 404 pages that was being found by search engines and internet spiders, which affected the overall performance of my blog being indexed by search engines. Now that everything is looking great and working great I hope to share more of my life with you.
Of course there are still a lot of issues, and not really sure about the overall look of the blog. If you like it let me know, if not than tell me why!

In my search for a Fashion school, I came across Seneca College’s Fashion Arts program at their Newnham campus. I wasn’t sure about this program but further research into Seneca’s Fashion Arts program curriculum and general activities and industry network; I have come to believe that this school is where I want to go.
Sarah Nicole of Sar Couture (http://www.sarcouture.com/bio.html) attended this program. She is a very talented person and even won a contest and got a place in ELLE Canada. Which lead me to believe that this is a great program. . . right? With many industry connections and an opportunity to create a collection with a graduation fashion show; I believe that this is the right school to give me the experience that I have been looking for to break into the fashion industry.
Choosing schools is hard work. I guess we’ll see where I will end up.
