Best Book Investment


A couple of days ago I took a trip to Northam – a city much bigger than Merredin! and it had a few shops that I absolutely LOVED! One in particular was Everlastings on Fitzgerald where they had pretty things on display everywhere!!

From candles to vintage bags to vintage everything! I was oohing and aahing everywhere I looked! I walked over to a white bookcase where there were some beauty products on display, and I tried some “MOR” products on the skin, and it smelt gorgeous….

  
Sometimes I don’t particularly like the product, but what they had there I really liked! Everything was packaged beautifully, and the room was just exquisitely exhibited. I definitely recommend this shop, if you are out and about in the country of Western Australia.

   

  

After I looked at the MOR products, I walked on over to the counter, and there was a small white round table with a “high tea glasshouse style” which was a limited edition collection of candles, and right next to it was the one and only, Lisa Messenger book, Life & Love. I have seen this everywhere, and the idea of reading a book on creating your dreams was enough for me, but then I noticed – ‘Love, Style, Life’ by Garance Dore’.

I had seen this picture EVERYWHERE on Instagram, and I wanted to know what the fuss was about!!! Even more, the three stages is exactly what a female goes through constantly! We all want to be loved and ‘love’ is bound in a relationship, and ‘style’ is something that is of our particular taste, and well, ‘LIFE’ is self-explanatory.

This is the kind of book where you can skip parts and go straight to your favourite topic. Such as “Elegance”, that is the first part I skip to right away because I know that that is the topic that I want to achieve greatly in all of my blogs.

What stood out to me was the following sentence:

Elegance is….. eloquence. Knowing how to speak – The secret? Reading and practicing.

Eloquence is the practice or art of using language with fluence or aptness. Aptness is a great word! Aptness is when you are able to learn quickly, efficiently and easily. Those that are apt are refined in intelligence!

ELEGANCE - CHANEL

When you say about an author that is ‘eloquent’, it usually means to speak or write at ease in using language to best effect. Such as Jane Austen or Charlotte Bronte. If you wish to be eloquent in speech and language, it is best to read those authors books. I am still working on it, and there are plenty of words I don’t know! But learning to be eloquent in character is something that I always will want to learn!

LOVE STYLE LIFE PIC

I may be reiterating but elegance and eloquence is something that I want as a lady!! I don’t know about you, but I am on a journey to further my language skills and character to be the best I can be as a lady.

Material on the subject is in my “How to be a lady” post, but if you don’t want to keep buying books, then google! I am sure google will find you blogs, and articles that teach you all sort of different ways to uphold yourself in grace, sophistication and poise. I am still trudging through Jane Eyre, as I started reading another book – I have put it aside, but there is something about this book that I believe will help with my English Language. English Language was actually my best subject in high school, along with Music Performance! One that really stood out to me is Shirley by Charlotte Bronte. I eventually want to get through this THICK novel, and gain knowledge through study and experience!

LADY WITH CLASS

 

It has been quite an odyssey getting through my Library studies course, I have posted quite a few things in the discussion postings, and the lecturer has given quite positive feedback which has kept me proud. This I will continue to do until I figure out what my next move is! Library Studies was my first love when I graduated high school in 2004, and I can see myself in a library in the future, but sometimes you get that gut feeling like there may be more for you out there!

I need to read my own post on “Dare to Dream” to keep me thinking about the dreams that I wanted to achieve! There was just so much that I wanted to achieve as a lady, and maybe landing a dream job is what I need…. But I shall keep on with my studies and see what life shall entail this year.

Elegance is …..also…… giving attention to others. Have you ever met someone and they just make you feel special. When I met a particular girl in Melbourne, the first question she said to me in the car was “Are you royal?” WHO asks that!!!??? Hahaha and what a compliment of a question that is! I established a really good relationship with this girl, and I will never forget when she asked me that question!!!! What was more interesting was that later on I found out about my ancestry, and they DID host parties for the Prince and Princess of Wales in the 1800’s!!! So, it was close! For further information on my ancestry you can explore in my blog, Travels in Australia.

Having qualities of love, style and life is the best thing you can have. You are on your way to success if you have these things in your life, I believe!

LOVE STYLE LIFE

So, I reckon…. I don’t know if the word ‘reckon’ sounds eloquent enough! Haha! But I consider the book, Love, Style, Life is a sound investment to speculate life in itself. It is full of theory, and she is a blogger too!!! That’s what I love about her. She is a photographer, illustrator and author and has published and contributed articles for British Vogue, Paris Vogue, The Wall Street journal, The New York Times, T Magazine, Elle, Guardian and New York magazine, and she lives in New York too!!! What a dream!!!

If you have read this till the end, then I would say that this is the book for you! It has helpful tips on beauty and it has everything you need in one little package! It is every girls guide to LOVE, STYLE AND LIFE!!!!!

Princess “Polyvore”


I recently came across a website called Polyvore. I have found a new love!!!

POLYVORE LOGO

You can create your own profile, and create your own collections and sets, so you can put together your own outfit choosing anything from tops, pants, dresses, accessories, shoes, bags, etc. I am currently a “Style Spotter” because I have created two sets so far. I need to create 23 more sets to become a “Style Setter”!!!

My second set that I created I called it an “All IT Pink Girly Outfit“.

I love what I have chosen, as everything that I have chosen is a soft pink colour, and it reminds me a bit of “Legally Blonde”! Except her colours may have been a bit too bright!

This is a collection of my favourite stylish pink stuff. Soft pink exemplifies femininity and I find that this is a very feminine collection. Have a look at all the things I have chosen below, and if you like, comment on what you think about it. I would love to hear what you think!

I hope you like my pink “Princess Polyvore” outfit collection plus a few other things to look at. It is hard to keep up to date with stock, and I will up date posts when I find out that things are out of stock. It can be quite hard to keep up to date because you have to manually click on links, and then realise, oh its not there! So, I will hopefully keep you updated with some new outfit ideas when I get inspired, and share with you my favourites.
