Goodbye Douchbag, Hello Gentlemen


Pick up the newest H&M magazine (free at all H&M stores) and you will find out that Comme des Garcon x H&M Collection hits stores this November. Very exciting stuff! I loved the article written about the five phenomena this autumn 2008. I will share with you my favourite:

Mr Right
Under a perfect white shirt beats the heart of a knight.
The Gentlemen is back. You will see him striding down the runway…their look is styled down to the smallest detail. Gentlemen’s club like the 21 Club in Manhattan are on the upswing and packed full of young people. Being a gentlemen is about being the best man you can be, involves a lot more than just a smart wardrobe, its more an attitude than a look. Rediscovering old school values like prode, intelligence and dignity. It means being satisfied with no less than the perfect jeans, the best tailored white shirt or the sweetest sneakers rather than collecting labels. In short, being a gentleman means shaking off cynicism, being yourself and loving every minute of it.

Give Love a Chance

A Message by George Carlin:

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things.

We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do
everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stock room. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete…

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe,
because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.

Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Went for lunch with a friend today who had some kind words to say to me. He says stop questioning what you are doing all the time or you will never be happy – just do, just be and it should suffice.

I found out my fundamental problems in life… is that i am not good with boundaries and hearing no.
Weekend again, woo hooo for those m-f’ers.

No clothes on

The snowglobe of a life is once again settling down – Shake that confetti with moving to the new spot with you and you – this and that has finally given in to gravity, getting centred again. So – we stopped talking, I got fed up, decided that I needed more from you and now what. 3 days passed and i text to say i miss’d you and am level 3 of the confusatory looking at the stars that know the future but aren’t telling.  That’s fine, I said it before and will say it once again. I have the rest of my life to love you and there is no rush. Far from the girl i used to be but still the same at the core of it all – still the same just with more glitter and gloss.

Its not that i have $400k in the bank but i am just no longer afraid and being fearless and passionate is a formula of those who are remembered in history, i think.  Having nothing to lose and everything to gain, the only way to go is forward, up and out.  Catapulted into the sky, wee!
