Wedding Bells and Fringlish Revisisted! [11 Nov 2005|12:43pm]

crazyottewill

CUT! No! No! No! No! No! No! *hands waving franticly*

Darling Tami, thank you so much fotr sorting out the pics.... but I semi sorted the problem in France and have decided that we cannot have a lopsided _HOt LOve... is that too perfectionist?! I tried to be as clever as you, yesterday to slot it in perfectly with picture (and more... yes I have more) but *points at self* Not clever enough!

So I have to add the  pics after you said you'd sorted it... not very confusing at all....

 

Rrrrrrrrrrrrrright! Here are pictures that were taken at the Le Mentec Wedding that took place on the 8th of October, to which I was invited to, to be the woman by the side of the Best Man. *nods*

So! I returned from my wonderful, beautiful, enchanting, incroyable, parfait, petit weekend avec mon copain en Bretagne pour la marriage de son frere, but with a camera full of arty pictures, that annoyed my mum, as I wasn't depicted on any of em... err.., that would be cuz I'm the photographer! Duuuuuuuuuuuurhhhhhh! But la famillle Le Mentec are quite clever and had people taking lots of pictures (father, son... officially hired guy that thought I was wearing sunglasses for some pigheaded reason (they change in the sunlight people!!!)

 

Moi et les parentals. Left: Papoun Le Mentec et Mamoun Le Mentec.... also known as Dominique and Sylvanna.

Sorry they're blurred. Dunt you just lurve Remy's hat?! Anywho... the boy, the bride, the groom, the Ott!


 Les Maris.

And a funky one that I took!

HUge! Mehehehe! I'm a proud person!

 The one I like to call: No Papparazi please!

And last but definatly not least.... us in our swopped hats!

We looked do funkypants and accidently matched in 30's style!

Whatcha think!?

Just a quick message, for all my H.Ot L.O.vers [02 Nov 2005|10:11pm]

Fixed Lenna's pictures and, whilst a little large, they are lovely. I thoroughly approve of everything my love, you looked absolutely gorgeous, and tres chic together.

For anyone that's going through a break-up right now, please listen to Stars - Your Ex-Lover is Dead. I shall post the lyrics so you don't think I'm a psychopath, it's been keeping me sane for the past week or so...

God that was strange, to see you again,
Introduced by a friend of a friend,
I smiled and said: 'Yes I think we've met before'
In that instant it started to pour
Captured a taxi, despite all the rain,
We drove in silence across Pont Champlain
And all that time you thought I was sad
I was trying to remember your name

This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin
You tried to reach deep but you couldn't get in
And now you're outside me you see all the beauty
Repent all your sin

It's nothing but time and a face that you'll lose
I chose to feel it and you couldn't choose
I'll write you a postcard, I'll send you the news
From the house down the road, from real love

Live through this and you won't look back (x3)


There's one thing I have to say so I'll be brave
You were what I wanted, I gave what I gave
I'm not sorry I met you
I'm not sorry it's over
I'm not sorry there's nothing to save (x2)

Lilly of the Valley. [24 Sep 2005|04:05pm]

burningburning
After reading this poem in Tears for Water by Alicia Keys, I thought it important for all strong, sexy, liberated women to have the chance to read it. Out of the hundreds of beautiful poems and lyrics in the book, I picked this for HOt L.O.ve because I know how important this will be for all my chicas - espescially my Lenna Benna! Take in the words and the genius of the beautiful, talented Alicia Keys.

Lilly of the Valley
Lilly of the Valley
Pale as the moon
Something in your eyes
Is tortured
Something is wrong
And it's hurting me.

Lilly
So soft and beautiful
So pure yet painted
By the evils of the world.

Lilly
Please don't let them
Crush your petals
And throw you to the wind

Lilly, please love yourself
From the roots deep within.

Lilly of the Valley
Don't dance for the evil one
Who cares nothing
For how precious you are
Or how tenderly you need to be picked.

Lilly
You are special
You are beautiful
And only should be treated gently
Like the breeze that blows
Like the spring sun.

Lilly
Please don't let them
Crush your petals
And throw them to the wind
Scattered
Leaving the residue of worthlessness on your lips
Forever lost
From what once was within.

Lilly is a stripper. I am asking her not to let the world make her hate herself. I don't remember exactly when this came to me, but all my life I've seen women who've had to sell themselves in one way or another to make it. I've seen only the unexpressible pain in their eyes that causes - leaving the residue of worthlessness on their tongues.

Alicia Keys,
Tears for Water

Uni Hopping: The discovery of L [25 Jul 2005|08:59am]

burningburning
Hello all!

A HUGE thank you to my husband who did the noble thing and went in to accept the slings and hooks of our fans as they complained about our lack of updates... HAHAHA! Well, to those who do read this page, and apology from both of us, we were far too busy running around the country looking at Unis and phoning up Frenchmen and loving surprise South African gifts! Sorry! *giggles*

Anyway, I am here today on very important business. Whilst touring around, Lenna and I did find time to watch the occasional bit of television... And in doing so stumbled upon a gem. Ladies and gentleman, The L Word.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

The characters of The L Word, from top clockwise - Mark, Kit, Carmen, Alice, Dana, Jenny (in the corner), Shane, and Helena. The two women in the center, the blonde is called Tina, and the dark curly haired woman is Bette.


This is the first fashionable TV show to show lesbians as powerful, passionate women and avoid stereotypes of butch women that drink beer and basically look like truckers. First of all, look at all of these women. They are all gorgeous. And this TV show captures the beauty of the love of two women, but also frequently pokes fun at the increasing fashionability of lesbians. In one episode (Season 2, Episode 1 I believe) a character is asked: "Do you think dykes are the new fags?" I think that's what makes this show so successful. It's raw and candid where it needs to be, but also it's very artisticly presented, and it has in every shot the kind of cinematography that interests a woman - vivid colours, intricate sets, stunning fashion, symbolism flying all over the place... It's simply genius. A new Sex and the City, just with more girl-girl sex scenes. And is that a problem?

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

The women are displayed provocatively, beautifully, and each woman shows her own fragility and power throughout the course of the show. 1 - Tina (Laurel Holloman), 2 - Alice (Leisha Hailey), 3 - Bette (Jennifer Beals), 4 - Dana (Erin Daniels), 5 - Shane (Katherine Moennig), 6 - Kit (Pam Grier)


Now onto our personal favourites... Lenna felt very passionately about the show and decided soon after that one of the characters was going to have to have sex with her, or Lenna would have to find a way to 'become' this person... She's got some serious attitude, she's cool, she's sexy, she's smart, and her fashion sense is always stunning. Lenna's favourite lesbian - Shane. *crowd cheers*
Image hosted by Photobucket.com


Of course, Lenna does not understand the Shane sex completely, as she's never seen Shane with glasses, which is where I personally think she looks her sexiest. So, for Lenna's general education and so that those of you out there not convinced will understand just how gorgeous all of these women are... For the second time... Shane...
Image hosted by Photobucket.com Image hosted by Photobucket.com


And now my personal fave... I love this girl because she is just so stunningly beautiful, and deeply disturbed... She wants to be a writer but keeps getting rejected, and to find her inspiration she goes into her own little parallel universe where characters start coming to her mind. Her fashion is gorgeous, her acting is flawless, and her denial that she was a lesbian and her trying to be straight as her parents wanted makes her a really human character... Jenny *crowd cheers again*
Image hosted by Photobucket.com


Come on now... How gorgeous is that woman? Are those women, in fact? For everyone who's a bit... 'Oh no, I can't watch that, I'm not a lesbian...' Get over yourself. I'm straight as a ruler, but this show still entertains me, and quite frankly is very hot. Also, the acting is amazing and the cinematography... Wow. Never before has such a taboo subject been so beautifully and candidly presented. Don't knock this show until you've tried it... Really. I guarantee at least a tiny part of you will be impressed.

Uni Hop-ping! [24 Jul 2005|08:15pm]

[ mood | nostalgic ]

As I've afore mentioned, I've just retirned from a Uni Hpping trip.... the defintion being our trip that we planned at Christmas, so that we could decide which Universities we wanted to go to. I havn't much time... so I shall just make this post a picture slide show... with captions!

                      

Our good friend the Reindeer. he lived in the staircase of the, as we called it, haunted cottgae outside Cambridge. I walked up the stairs first, and then nearly died of a heart attack... as people followed I said "Dunt panic but there's  Reindeer behind you" Of course they dint understand until they turned round. But we were all in hysterics. If you were as tall as Drew or Ricky you would have bumped into it. So really not the best place to place an animals head! Tami's oldest friend, Katie (a jolly lass!) *giggles* crowned the dear/ deer *pun intended* with the lovely shower cap! Good times!

  

The Rickster standing in the door way of Whitmore Way, Basildonia..... and the coupledom on the train on the way to the West End. Phantom Sex, here we come.

Us in the ultra trendy cafe, atthe beginning of the long and wearisome day. We thought that the red leather sofa's would bring good karma. We all lok a bit tired as we've been camping. But loadsa fun!

 Hahahaha! Looking arty-farty!

                                                  ~PHANTOM SEX!~

               

The wife et moi looking fabulous pre-phantom in our corsets. Hurrah hurrah!

                 

Post-phantom sex! asc you can see I'm not quite with it... too many emotions have just bombarded me. Such bliss and genius! Is it me... or do I look tall in thsi pic? Tami, Ricky and I all have little phantom mask pins. *pride* Gosh! People wouldnt think we even loked at Unis. Hhahahahaha! Thsi was my nirthday present from the Mothership! Btw... Tami's bday prezzie was having ricky over! Bless the lovers!

This is the graduation party we attended at UEA. The mothership's best friend got her masters (I believe) and everybody is merry. We stayed at their house in Norwich. For Rémy's reference (well and anyone else) Katie is the girl clad in white to the left of  Debbi (who's graduating!)

heeeheee!

Well... my next post shall be of the last day of the uni-trip... that I actually spent with Steffi! Sorry bout the lack of fashion!

Prom '05: Take One [05 Jun 2005|09:10am]

Okay, so as promised countless times by myself, here are the pictures of me in my prom dress for Ricky's (otherwise known as The Boy) graduation! It was such a good night, and made me miss my own prom and my girls endlessly... Anyway, here are the pictures we took of Tami on her tod, before Ricky came to meet me:

Make up and hair compliments of my fabulous mum, the dress was from Debenhams 'Debut' and the shoes were from Milano - I wore them to my prom as well, and I call them my Cinderella shoes because they just sparkle. Anyway, on to the 'Awwww' pictures with my lovely boy:

We had a lovely lovely night, and he bought me 5 roses (haven't shown the picture here because for some reason it looks retarded when I make it smaller), because we've been dating for 5 months now... *Sigh* Will post more about that soon - I have to go get ready for school! Loves to all!

Murder Mystery Parties! [31 May 2005|10:17pm]

crazyottewill
[ mood | indescribable ]

How exciting! Nearly 18... one and a half hours left till I'm officially an adult!

Anyway, back to the crucial Topic! My good friend Dawn decided to host a Murder Mystery Party. Now when I explained what it wsa to my nan, she made a face until I said "I'm a geek!" She laughed and said well as long a syou know this... it's alright!

But now I shall defend the genre Murder Mystery, because:

         - You get to dress up: We were in Mayfair 1912, London.

         - It involves drama: You take on a part... I was Georgette Michel a flirty mademoiselle from Paris. (During play I revealed myself to be a social flirty *wink wink*climber and a criminal and went down with the Titanic) I had a disgracefully hilarious french accent.

         - You get fed and bevved up: You don't just snack on bag foods, but get a nice sit down meal. I don't actually drink, but when other people get tipsy/drunk and are in character... just pure entertainment!

         - You use your brain: Or try to at least. Between given dialogues we tried to improvise and hot seat each other a bit... and we had to use History to get our timelines correct. Shylock McClue (ou sleuth of you couldnt tell), on the cassette, was full of inuendos! I swear... may not be able to spell the damn word... but Shylock is a dude that knows good rock songs and three consecutive shags!

SO... good good fun. Fine quality entertainment! And not geeky but utterly cool! If you get the chance to host or attend?! DO IT! Can't wait fer the next!

All pictures are in Sepia, for period effect.

The hostess Dawn et moi!                                        From left: Dawn, Dan, Adam and the bit of hair is Pudney

 Very attractive! Corrie and me again (eating)

 I based my character Georgette on Josphine Bell, the black american smoldering sexuality that crossed the atlantic to live her life to the fullest. She become the rage in Paris, that she never would have had the opportunity to become in the USA. Unfortuanly my hiar isn't short anymore, but I pinned it up, accompanied it with smokey black eye make-up and dark lipstick. It was fun to attempt to emulate, but as you can see didn't quite achieve her funk! Hahahahahaha! Josephine Baker was big in the 20's and the party was set in the year that the Titanic sank.

Ode to the Supermodel! [28 May 2005|08:31pm]

crazyottewill
[ mood | *yum* ]

Summer is finally in the air, the sun has penetrated the clouds, BBQ's are wafting across neighbourly fences and study leave is letting me enjoy all of the above! Hurrah!

I thought I should pay a tribute to the women that many of us envy and despise yet feel like they are our best friends... yes it is the Ottster's Ode to the Supermodel. When I say Supermodel though, I'd like to point out that I'm bowing down to the women that rightly deserve the name "Super"-model.

                                   

I must admit that the first three people in the mass of nakedness that I recognize are: Cindy Crawford (famous for her curvy figure and mole), Naomi Campbell (probably the first famous black model), Linda Evangelista (sculpted and chiseled all over).

Ofcourse we have always had famous models, yet I can only think of Twiggy right away (famous for being Skinny and Waif-like in the 60's...thus Twiggy) (oh and Jerry Hall!) and since we have had models such as Alek Wek (hurrah for Sudanese Models... they do indeed exist), Tyra Banks, Gisele Bündchen etc. Obviously there are many more that deserve kudos, such as Iman,Chirsty Turlington, Claudia Schiffer, but to me personally they just never fully reached that iconic status of SUPERMODEL.

The Supermodel-era started growing in the mid to late 1980's, but Supermodel-dom was truly in its peak during the 90's. Normal catwalk models were transcending the entertainment world, showing up at Award Ceremonies, not just as Armcandy, but because they had personalities and felt like it, they played big roles in music videos, made their own fitness videos, protested against fur (although some were a bit hypocritical *tuts NC*) and basically became VIP A-Listers more famous and important than actor's.

                           

I'd say that the secret to become a Supermodel is that you actually do have to be gorgeous, have personality, branch out into several fields BUT most importantly you have to last!

These women are now in their third decade of work and are going strong. They've proven that having children doesn't stop you from looking fab. Cindy Crawford is till appearing in magazines world wide, Naomi Campbell has been busy appearing in music videos and posters for Accesorize and Linda Evangelista has recently joined the MAC Viva Glam team.

Hurrah! I say HURRAH! Hurrah for the Supermodel. The model that is clever, powerful, sexy and beautiful!

Summer trends of '05 [25 May 2005|12:35pm]

burningburning
Right, well, seeing as I haven't been able to take a decent picture of my prom dress as yet due to stupid revision and an even more stupid digital camera! So I've decided to bridge the gap between posts so to speak by adding a little trend report for everyone... Here is my take on the Trends of Summer '05:

The Chunky Necklace

Not L.O.ve:Image hosted by Photobucket.com H.Ot L.O.ve:Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Okay, so basically to avoid the 'I've made my necklace out of pasta' look seen in the first photo, I'd go for more brightly coloured, round beads that flatter any outfit and just brighten up your look slightly. I wouldn't necessarily use these colour of beads, but you get the general idea.


The Slouchy Look
Not L.O.ve:Image hosted by Photobucket.com H.Ot L.O.ve:Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Right, so I'm big into the Boho look, but those fugly shorts are just taking the piss. I believe in looking good, not looking like I've just rolled out of bed or an AA meeting or something... I don't even think I would wear them on Slouchy Friday... Eurgh *shudders*. The skirt however is fabulous, I do approve. *nods*


The Wedges
Not L.O.ve:Image hosted by Photobucket.com H.Ot L.O.ve:Image hosted by Photobucket.com
As a 5'4 girl who is dating a 6'4 guy, I was thankful for wedges coming into fashion finally. However, mocassins on wedges are not hot. Mocassins in general are not hot, they're just stealing someone else's culture... It's just wrong, and us wannabes cannot work them. But ugh, they look hideous on those bright white wedges. The other wedge looks far more laid-back, beachy kind of cuteness, the right kind of attitude for the summer. Please don't wear mocassin wedges. Ever.


The Gigantic Bag
Not L.O.ve:Image hosted by Photobucket.com H.Ot L.O.ve:Image hosted by Photobucket.com
I cannot even begin to express how tacky the first bag is. I hate huge huge bags, and I hate metallic on bags... If I had to carry a larger bag I'd probably go for something slightly understated, like the second one. There is just no need to carry around a huge bronze whale-sized bag. No need.


Hope you enjoyed it, and please remember this is just my style, if I've offended anyone in anyway, don't take me so seriously. Unless you wear mocassin wedges. If you do, STOP.

Another D.C. update... avec les photos! [17 May 2005|05:29pm]

Well, after surfing around the wonder that is the Net I have managed to find some pictures from the Destiny Fulfilled... And Lovin' It! tour, which means that I can show you the Destiny's Child HOt L.O.ve that I've been talking about...

Image hosted by Photobucket.com Image hosted by Photobucket.com

These were the fabulous opening outfits I tried (rather pathetically) to describe in my earlier post. Note Kelly's gorgeousness, and in the second picture behind their heads is SAY MY NAME in big white letters.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

The lovely nude coloured outfits (the lighting on the Dubai stage wasn't as harsh as this, and the nude parts of the dress blended in far better with their skintones, and the glittery parts really glittered...) which created quite stunning visuals in my concert... Not so much here... They wore these to sing Destiny Fulfilled anthems such as Girl and Through With Love...

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Outfits worn for the finale, Lose My Breath, which I think are pretty funkypants and are something I would definately wear on a day to day basis... Lovely style, ladies. I salute your fabulousness...

Sorry there aren't many, I'll keep my eye out for more! Aaah, last day of school tomorrow before study leave - expect more posts soon!

Concert Review: Destiny's Child [13 May 2005|07:53pm]

burningburning
Hello HOt L.O.vers,
Well, sorry for my little absence, things have been getting ker-azy in the world of Tamz. However, I am here today to post about a little concert I attended last night (12th May '05). Last night was the night that Destiny's Child rocked Dubai Media City.

Now it should be noted that I am a seasoned concert go-er, and I'm usually unfazed by crowds of people pushing and shoving me, but this concert was packed tighter than Saddam Hussein's suitcase of nuclear weapons. Anyway, so Mel and I were queing for this thing for at least 1 hour and a half before we actually got in, and once in, we tried to get as close to the stage as possible. After about 2 hours, it was manic. I had to get out, people were jumping on top of me, there was too much sweat, and I just couldn't deal. Destiny's Child and their supporting act were already 1/2 hour late, and I was hot, faint, dehydrated, and not impressed.

Anyway, so eventuallement their stupid support act Dahlia comes on - Lebanese, had one hit single, and suddenly thinks that means she can sing and dance. Now we have such a good view of the stage, but this act I did not want to see. She was doing all these ridiculous teeny bopper dance moves and shouting 'Oh' because she was out of breath and couldn't sing. Even her backup dancers were bad.

Yeah, so after about 20 minutes of stupidity, with myself and Melissa looking at one another like 'Why... Why are they putting us through this...?' There was some DJ music and about another 20 minute wait (we were so grateful for the DJ music - previous to the supporting act it had been ad after ad after ad).

And then... it begins. The lights suddenly went off, and the most dramatic music ever (it's that piece of music with the huge choir that is like, the most suspenseful piece of music of all time...) comes onto a screen full of Michelle images, one after the other, showing her off, getting faster and faster with the music. Next comes Kelly, looking absolutely stunning as always, then clips of Beyonce, which speeds and speeds with the music until it explodes into three words: Say My Name. Three silhouettes appear, and the show has begun...

Singing in beautiful harmony and looking fabulous (it should be noted I have goosebumps as I'm writing this), the girls came on stage. Michelle was in a purple glittery cut-off top with purple trousers, Kelly in a to die for glittery red minidress, and Beyonce in a gold stringy top with gold trousers. They rocked out 'Say My Name', 'Independant Women', 'Bootylicious' and then on to a medley of 'No, No, No', 'Bug a Boo', 'Jumpin Jumpin' and 'Bills, Bills, Bills'... All doing lurvely harmonies which make you shiver because they are so close and yumscrum sounding... COSTUME CHANGE!!!

The girls each came out one by one at this point, singing their own solo material... Kelly started it off, in a gorgeous minidress in silver and white... (Silver diamante overlay, white sparkly material underneath). She had all these dancers on stage with white feathers that moved away one by one to reveal her - 30s style, we loved! She sang 'Dilemma' all on her own, with a little help from the audience (tehehe), and then she kept making us all sing things, and it slowly got harder until she went ridiculously high and just gave everyone goosebumps and blew everyone away with her talent and gorgeousness.

Michelle next, sang a song I don't know off of her album called 'He Is There', which was amazing because she has such a good voice, and I never realized it!! She wore a gorgeous pink floorlength gown and looked really stunning, and went up higher than Beyonce or Kelly went - I actually think that they are all equal in their talent, completely, I just think certain members have more coverage *coughs splutters coughs*. But even that didn't ruin my evening. So yes, hugely wonderful solo from Michelle... Well done darling..

Beyonce last, of course, for dramatic impact. She came on all in white, a white mini with a white cutoff top, holding a white umbrella (because you obviously need one when performing?) She sang 'Baby Boy' (and Lenna - she did the freaky dance, made worse by a line of dancers male and female doing it with her) and then mixed it into 'Naughty Girl', which I have to say was funkypants. Got everyone dancing fo'sho'! I was so ecstatic by this point, and dancing my little bottom off!

Now, the funkiest (well I think so) part of the entire performance - their male dancers! Now, clips from the soldier video were flashing around on the screen, and this part is just hilariously cool. The guys all march together and do this soldier type dance routine, creating rhythms and then building up on them... It was so cool!!! They all looked sooo sexy, getting lower and lower and lower to the ground - Mel and I were going insane!! And then the three silhoettes appeared, Kelly at the top of the stairs onstage, Beyonce to one side and Michelle to the other, all dressed in soldier outfits (sexier obviously, hotpants and skirts etc.) with aviator glasses - so cool! COSTUME CHANGE ONCE MORE!

More sexy mendancers, with their gorgeousness and their slick moves... They introduced the band here I think... And then all the girls came on wearing lovely flesh-toned and gold outfits (gold sequins strategically placed, flesh coloured elsewhere to make it look a little naughty!) and sang 'Girl', 'Cater 2 U', 'Free' (and yes, Kelly goes as high up as she does on the record), and this absolutely funkypants song, which I cannot find right now, but it's SO COOL and I think it should be their new song. Ooh, it's called 'Through With Love', and it's insanely amazing. Especially live... Wow.

Then Kelly and Michelle went away for a little bit, and Beyonce stayed on to do the bootyfabulous 'Crazy In Love' with these gorgeous female dancers... Yes they did the bootyshake bit... And then Beyonce left to get changiered and her dancers stayed on to do individual dance sections to 'Get Right' *orgasmanation 1* 'Goodies' *orgasmanation 2* and 'One Thing' *HUGE ORGASMANATION TIME*... By this time Tami was absolutely shaking the booty and going ker-azy... So so entertaining...

So then 'Survivor', which was done so well in my opinion... They were all dressed like gypsies and they did this Spanish dance for the chorus, and right in the middle they did an amazing Flamenco section, where all the women tapped and clapped to create all these rhythms and swung their big flowy skirts around which Tami loved as she was wearing a big flowy skirt... So good! And yeah, they made it look like that was their last song but of course Tami knew better...

ENCORE! 'Lose My Breath' of course, girls in jeans, white tops with funkypants jewellery... Very cool, well choreographed and a good finish, even though I thought 'Survivor' was the more spectacular of the two songs... But anyway it was FABULOUS either way and I was so blown away and entertained... Quite possibly the best concert I've ever been to, tied with Alicia and Whitney Houston... Wow.

Anyway, that was a long post for my Lenna Benna, because she should have been there, and I love her so much for waiting for me to type all of this... Mwah mwah darling, you were muchly missed last night.

Have decided to make it my mission to spread the charitible nature, as 2005 is meant to be the year when we make Poverty History.

Was actually gonna post this on the election day but *shrugs* no time!

A whole lotta famous people, such as Bono, Claudia Schiffer, Brad Pitt, Dawn French, Kate Moss, Jamelia, Kylie, Chris Martin, Colin Firth and gezillions more have decided to join Sir Bob Geldof (*giggle* Sir Bob!) in a campain to spread awarness that every three seconds a person dies as a result of poverty.

They've come up with an ad, in which every three seconds the click their fingers. (very clever) Really makes you aware of it!

                                              

Anyway, I'm not asking anyone to donate big wads of cash ( but do if you could!!!!), but just at least text the words "Make Poverty History" to the number 80205. By texting this number you are sendning a text to Tony Blair and asking him to drop Third World Debt.  Did you know that us Developed Countries are lending Developing Countries money (thus saying that we are helping them) but are then charging them interest on it (so the get into even more debt and poverty). By backing this campaign you are encouraging Fair Trade and by perhaps buying a white band you are raising money for aid in those countries.

Anyway, just think about it. It's only a little text... but it could make a huge difference. That's my political rant over!

Cinema Review: Kingdom of Heaven [08 May 2005|09:32pm]

burningburning
Okay, so having seen wannabe epic of 2005 Kingdom of Heaven last weekend avec le boy, I have decided to let all my HOt L.O.vers out there know what I though of it, so that should the need arise for you to decide whether to view it or not, you can make an informed decision *nods*.

Right, so let me begin by saying I was a huge fan of Gladiator... Yes I know it's cliche, no I don't actually care... The acting was amazing, as was the soundtrack and the direction. So I'm already a huge fan of Ridley Scott's, and I have high expectations. As soon as the movie started, I could tell it was a Ridley Scott. Beautiful opening piece of music with a heavy emphasis on nature, shot in a moody blue/purpley tint lens... Yep, that's my boy.

Anyway, so movie follows the life of Balain... This guy who becomes a Knight of Templar and goes to Jerusalem with his daddy (Liam Neeson - God of screen) to try and make some peace between the Muslims and Christians (hahaha, same old story) who are fighting over the Holy Land. Anyway, I'll try to be neutral here despite the fact that I actually cannot stand Orlando Bloom after Troy... Terrible actor... Anyway, for me, I thought the role was much too mature for him. He had to play, just as Maximus Aurelius, husband to a dead wife (suicide) and father to a murdered son... Yes yes okay, now Russell Crowe is hotter in my eyes than Orlando Bloom, but besides that... I actually felt for him in Gladiator. I felt his pain, his emotion, his bitterness. Orlando, as far as I'm concerned with this role, had the emotional depth of a puddle. He attempted some broody, I'msosexy stares at the camera which he failed to pull off, and always somehow managed to look like a wet little 6 year old girl.

Liam Neeson, in my opinion, was the best actor in this movie, and tragically his part was over within 20 minutes of the film starting. Bloom couldn't sustain the main role; he didn't captivate me, nor did he convince me that he had the substance to actually lead these people and command people and make decisions... Ugh and do not even get me started on his Arabic accent... So bad... I mean come on people I'm supposed to look at this, and orgasmanate?!

Not happening. The coolest person by far in that movie was the Muslim leader, Sala'iddin... What a guy... Famous Syrian actor, very captivating, believed his performance entirely. That was the other thing I liked about this movie, aside from its director... It was a very fair portrayal of the situation, and completely unbiased... If anything the Muslims were portrayed in a better light than the Christians... Which is quite fab and original of Mr. Scott. And also, the lead woman... Not hot. I thought at least yknow if the lead man wasn't that gorgeous they'd stick some hot female eyecandy in there but no! WHY?! We need something to interest us slightly...

Yeah, so the director is fab, but he had a lot to live up to after Gladiator, and I just don't think he did... For me, it was disappointing, and Orlando just let the whole movie down, which had the potential to be quite good... Shame! Scotty should have picked his cast better, eh?

The Swimsuit Edition... [07 May 2005|08:25pm]

burningburning
Hehehehehehe, well... I figured since Lenna and I had such a long discussion about swimsuits last night, I figured I'd post and spread some of the L.O.ve. Now the trend right now for me is no longer tankinis to hide the hideous lumps of cellulite (Benna does not have that problem, lucky cow) but it is now one-piece swimsuits that accentuate the beauty of the female body and look, well, funkypants! Speedo have a really nice collection... Here are my top picks:

So this is an updated version of the plain black schoolgirl Speedo swimsuit... And HOW sexual is this back? G-g-g-GORGEOUS! Feeling it, feeling it.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Okay, this is just beautiful, aside from weird lilac colour which I'm not sure if I like. But the lines are really smooth, and make the best of the body... Everything just looks effortless, which it should, because obviously poolside fashion must be subtle and hugely impacting... Who wants to look like they've tried to look good when they go swimming?

Beautiful, beautiful. And if I had a body like hers, I'd be wearing it all summer long. It's just effortless, and so stunning. And it compliments the body so well. Claps to Speedo.


Now, the Victoria's Secret website has been talking to me for ages, and they also have some gorgeous gorgeous swimsuits on there which I think are just beautiful, and should be shown around all over the place.

So, here's the lowdown. The first two are lovely for anyone with a gorgeous body, but more realistic to my shape I chose the third red one, which will be flattering and make the most of the bustage and love the curvy figure. It's also quite a fab colour, red, which happens to suit me! Chuckle chuckle...

And that is Tami's little thumbs up to swimsuits for the summer of 2005... It may seem early to be posting this but trust me, if you lived in the Dubai of maximus you would understand. HOT HOT HOT! And so are these swimsuits...!

Gabrielle Chanel... [06 May 2005|09:52am]

burningburning
...a.k.a. Coco Chanel, mother of modern fashion. Seeing as *sobs* there is a huge display on at The Costume Institue (where I've been and met the editor of Vogue) in the Met in NYC *sobs again* about her life and fashion... With a full range of her designs and Karl Lagerfield's also *breaks down crying* I have decided to dedicate a post to the hotness that is Chanel. There is no denying the influence that this French couture label has had on the whole of the fashion industry since the late 30s. So I'm going to tell you all a little story in photos and fashion, with hopefully some interesting commentary along the way!

Image hosted by Photobucket.com


This is Miss Gabrielle Chanel in 1901, who earned her nickname of 'Coco' from the two most famous songs in her concert hall performances (girlfriend was a singer, too!) "Ko Ko Ri Ko" and "Qui qu'a vu Coco." How coolbeans is that? She's pretty, huh? So classic... I love looking at old portraits of people...

Image hosted by Photobucket.com Image hosted by Photobucket.com Image hosted by Photobucket.com


Now, I can't quite express how sexual these designs are. The first is from one of Coco's designs from 1928. The classic lines of the 20s were made more... flowy by Chanel, and it kind of expressed the glamour that was coming of age with all the starlets being born in Hollywood at the time. The second dress is one of my favourites, and it's from the late 30s. Coco added the camellia to many of her designs at that time, because she said she wanted a flower that was versatile and elegant to become representative of her designs. One thing that's actually quite interesting in Chanel's designs is that she always cuts her evening gowns above the floor, as anymore material than this would drown the woman and she wouldn't be able to 'breathe' in her couture. How cool is this lady?!

The third and final dress comes from circa 1931, and is a representation of Coco's constant need to experiment with textures and fabrics. This dress, apparently, is made of rayon lace which was ultra modern for the time, and this was how Chanel used to outdo her fashionista opponents. Actually, it seems Coco was a bit cheeky really... She says: "I made fashion simply because I was the first to live in harmony with the century" Oooh, suits you, I say!

Well, that has made me suitably depressed and made me long to go to NYC even more than usual... Why do they always do this to me... The cravings, the cravings... *les sighs* By the way, have updated my introductory post, because I didn't really do a very good job first time around... Teheheh... Yes I have too much free time...

Here goes! [05 May 2005|09:39pm]

[ mood | mischievous ]

I am a colourful soul and so I hope to use as many colours as posible... and I shall restrain from the Lime Green.... basically my obsession!

Hmm.... I really want to start adding pics.... but I'm finding it quite hard to talk about stuff as yet, without it being too much about me *whispers* if you know what I mean..... I mena... I really don't want you all thinking taht I'm self-obsessed. Sex-shoe-style-camera-mc-obsessed yes!

Right. Tamzi-Bear-Noodle-Poodle-Hun-Bun did a feature on likes and dislikes.... so I shall add with Pics.

 1. So here you have my Great-Grandmother... Nanny Betty! She is currently 97 years old, but she is ultimatly funkypants coz she's still with it, was the ultimate chic in her day, supported the Sufragette's and has since given me all her cool hats and a couple of coats! It's form her sister (Aunie Chris) that i got my orange Weather-Gay coat! Without her contribution I woulddn't have the hat collection taht now includes about 35 hats!

 2. Travel. Am actually a globetrotter and have done a few Motorbike trips around the Middle east and Europe avec mon daddy! <-Paris... I'd like to add that I took these photographs. Paris! Paris! (obviously with the s silent!) Went there again (properly) in February and did some serious Museum hopping, where I was inspired and awed by Degas, Picasso, Monet, Manet, Renoir, Caillebotte etc. I'd like to point out that Tami's ultimate city is NYC and mine is Prague! I might find some dandy pictures. the gothic towers and bridges are amazing. Plus Prague is in Bohemia, was a majr part of teh Art Nouveau movement and has it's very own Sex Toy Museum!!!

 3. Love the wife and her boy ( as she calls him)*giggles* This was taken in the Madinat Jumeirah in the easter holidays. Aren't they loverly!

 4. Back to art! This is a fab piece called Retail Therapy by Gavin Reece. I love his work. He does little images for MC, which I cut out and stick on my wall.... yesh! I thought this piece would be quite fitting for this site. Don't get me wrong, we are not saying that cosumerism or materialism is the be and end all, coz that would be awful. I though it was fitting because it's stylish and EVERYONE knows that money can't buy you style. And we sure love our thrift stores, second hand boutiques and flea markets! *waves banner*

 5. A fellow artist! All art by Duane Nassis is magic! The boy hasd talent and I predict big success for him.The models are Jen Yee Toh and my legs. hahahahaha

Right now to the magic that is Theatre and Performing and TROPICANA!

  

YES! This is the SEX! A performance in the Vaults of the London Tube Station, this play has circus sleaze, death, includes a bar throughout, humour, TROPICANA GIRLS and is basically a modern Alice in Wonderland. There is no narrative so you make your own conclusions! The sexiest thing I've ever ever ever seen. Beats the Tango scene in Frida. Thye come up and lick your face! *nods* Oh YES! Such style, elegance. Absolutly terrifying. I drew my own conclusions, but without you seeing you'd get confused. basic summary. The Machine, monotony, routine versus free expression, sex, wild and frisky. Let go, be yourself or you might develope weird tendencies such as getting off with dogs!

 <- picture I took!

Now a few of my dislikes:

Pink in the obsessive teenybop-ditzy way.... what a way to kill a colour's reputation.

Holes: In a scary film I'll find somebody looking through a hole scarier than the rest... thus can't look through keyholes!

Cute-fluffy things.... all stuffed animals and POODLES!

Louis Vuitton bags *tuts* They are not couture... but trailer trash... especially in multicolour!

Pointy shoes: Go plant peas!

And pet-hates.... Peni and Thongs!

L.O.ve x
