R.O.M.A.N.C.E

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is the kind of romance I want with my husband. I love these two together, probably the best TV couple and parents that ever liveth.

That's All Folks


Honey, who said that the love of your life had to be a man or woman you haven’t even met yet? Maybe, you are destined to be the greatest love of your own life.

Role Model: Clair Huxtable


She might be a TV character but she is EVERY woman. And I mean that in every sense possible. I recently started rewatching episodes of The Cosby Show and I've decided she's the type of woman I want to be.

Not only is she a mother and a wife but she's also a career woman. And she is effortlessly poised and elegant and doesn't seem like the type of person who gets angry. Plus she's always so jolly, then again it was a sitcom, I'd be worried if she wasn't. LOL. Her husband adores her and her kids love her. Doesn't that sound like the kind of woman you would want to be?

Did I mention she is effortlessly beautiful? *lovestruck*

Everyday I'm Tumblin'



Tumblr.... It's my new addiction! It's perfection and one of those sites that prolong your procrastination. On days when I'm feeling sad, empty, bored or even happy, I go on tumblr to reblog pictures. My blog is a cocktail of fashion, romance, nature, beautiful chocolate women, male hunks, crazy curls, babies, cars, sensual pictures, quotes, the whole damn yard! So I took screen shots of my tumblr cause I'm feeling really vain and smug about how awesome it is. And because I'm also procrastinating on the paper I'm supposed to be working on.

If you don't have one then I don't know what you're waiting for. It's an escape from reality. It's perfect moments captured in gifs. It's the luxuries you covet in your heart. It's the beautiful people you wish you looked like. Your celebrity crushes. Couples in picture perfect moments. It's quotes you can relate to. It's poems that literally narrate your life or your present condition. It's cute kids that make you go awwwww. It's funny moments that make you laugh out loud. It's the world in a whole different light. It's tumblr.

Wrong Timing


"...We  met at the wrong time. That's what I keep telling myself anyway. Maybe one day, years from now, We'll meet in a coffee shop in a far away city somewhere and we could give it another shot..."

Letter to my Unborn Daughter 4


Well I didn't personally write this one but the message counts all the same;

Dear Future Daughter,
1) When you’re at some party, chain smoking on the roof with some strange girl with blue hair and exorbitant large dark eyes, ask her about her day. I promise you, you won’t regret it. Often times you’ll find the strangest of people have the most captivating of stories to tell.
2) Please, never mistake desire for love. Love will engulf your soul, whilst desire will emerge as acid, slowly making it’s way through your veins, gradually burning you from the inside out.
3) No one is going to fucking save you, anything you’ve read or heard otherwise is bullshit.
4) One day a boy is going to come along who’s touch feels like fire and who’s words taste like vanilla, when he leaves you, you will want to die. If you know anything at all, know that it is only temporary.
5) Your mental health comes before school baby, always. If its midnight, and you have an exam the next day but your hands have been shaking for the past hour and a half and you’re not so sure you want to be alive anymore, pull out that carton of Ben and Jerry’s and afterwards, go the fuck to bed. So what if you get a 68% on the exam the next day? You took care of yourself and at the end of the day that will always come before a high test score. To hell with anyone who tells you differently.

Lie to me, Baby

I'm having more lies being told to me than the truth.
Some of them even to my face. I'm sorry what the hell do I look like to you? A porcelain doll? An egg or even a snow flake? Do I look that fragile to you that you feel the impulse need to open your mouth and lie to my face? You think I can't handle the truth?

I'm irritated. Honestly I just can't. I can take anything but dishonesty. I am not interested in your beautiful lies so why don't you save me some?

Here's an idea, take your lies and shove it up that beautiful place God created to dispose off faeces. And if you think that's pretty harsh wait till the next time you lie to my face, I'll be disfiguring yours. KMFT.

This rant is over. Over and Out!

Ward 33

It's not just the ailment that gets you.
It's feeling like you're locked in a prison and can't get out
The four walls feel like they are closing in on you
It's how white and bleak and cold everything looks
No colour, no life

It's being surrounded by the old people,
With fatigue written all over their frail bodies,
The life drained out of them
It's a feeling of despair
Hearing them cry and groan in pain
Just waiting for it to be
The pain or life, whichever came first
It's not seeing a smiling face or hearing laughter in the background

It's the silence that gets you
So silent the only noise you hear is
The exaggerated tick-tocking of the clock

It's feeling like you're alll alone
Even if your life coudn't be more congested with people
You sometimes wish you could get rid off

It's feeling like you're cut off from the entire world
when you stare out the window
and wish you were on the other side not in here

Your thoughts get you, you don't feel like yourself
You don't feel particularly optimistic
You could be young but feel like you're dying already
Maybe you are... from the inside

It's how cold and lifeless the place feels
How can a place meant to make you feel better
Make you feel soo sad? Soo depressed... soo alone

It's not the ailment that gets you, it's the environment
It's the depression
The cold white space, the unfriendly atmosphere
It's the ward... ward 33

So you curl up and cry in foetal position
Not necessarily because you're in physical pain
But because it's emotional hell
Hell, maybe you should have just been diagnosed with depression...

Hello February


Happy New Month everyone. I don't know about you but January crawled its ass this year. Oh well... February is here. And it's the lovers month. Don't despair if you're single and feel like swallowing your arm at all the heart shaped candies and PDAs on display. Do yourself a favor and spoil yourself rotten on Valentine's Day. Remember you have to love yourself first before someone else can.

I wish you all a beautiful month and if you're over here, I hope the weather doesn't get you under, because it's really shitty (as it is when it's the end of winter). I wish you better days ahead filled with love and laughter.

Love,
B x
