Miami Beach (Oh What Joy)

The last time I was in Miami was about 6 years ago. Actually tell a lie, I was there last year but it was only for 2 days during¬†the stopover for our Caribbean cruise¬†so it doesn’t really count. In some respects¬†Miami, and in particular South Beach¬†reminds me a little bit¬†of Playa D’en Bossa in Ibiza (which I love!), only better (Europeans do it better don’t you know;). The Philippe Starck and Lenny Kravitz (would you believe?) designed SLS hotel, where we’re going to be¬†staying in Miami, even reminds me of a boutique version of the unique Ushuaia hotel in Ibiza, which hosts the best parties I have ever frequented. Like, ever! The music on the beach, the fun loving beach¬†party vibe,¬†the sun, the sea,¬†the house culture, the shopping,¬†the glamorous girls in skimpy bikini’s and fake boobage and the veiny and¬†extremely¬†shiny, gym obsessed¬†men are all what makes Miami Miami. But despite this, I’m sure that a lot has changed since I last holidayed there and I’m really looking forward to checking it all out. And maybe the next time I go I’ll stay at the beautiful, elegant Betsey (which is most¬†definitely in my sights). I will keep you informed!

But I’ve only just learnt how to do¬†THIS: ¬† Fashion Collage This is my very first vision board and I’m really quite chuffed with it. I came across this website: http://www.picmonkey.com¬†¬†which allows you to create your very own vision board with a selection of images or you can use your own. It’s great fun as it allows you to put all your favourite things together to create a collage. You can edit the images and add different affects¬† aswell as add text too. I’m hooked! ūüôā Initially I was looking for something that I’d be able to use to promote my products in a more visually stimulating way and I think I’ve now found just the thing. Now all I need to do is learn how to take better photography! ha!

And¬†now I’m addicted! Look See:

The internet is a dangerous thing. Aside from the obvious “dangerous things” there are to be had on t’internet, shopping for me, is one of them. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not a shopaholic nor a hoarder (in a lot of cases those can be one and the same!), but I DO like a frock. Evening dresses, Party Dresses, Casual Dresses, Summer Dresses, Beach Dresses, Wedding Dresses, Sexy Dresses, I love em all! I won’t bother trying to pretend that my addiction to clothing only extends to dresses as that would be telling porkies (I also favour bags, jewellery, lingerie, shoes, jackets, jumpsuits, tops etc), but I can honestly say that almost no other piece of attire excites me in quite the same way as when I clap my eyes on a beautiful dress. When I look at the design of a dress, it’s detailing, the material, the movement, the embellishments I get very excited indeed.
Since I’m STILL trying to justify the extortionate prices of the dresses on Nasty Gal and Revolve I am happy to continue doing research into locating a website offering similar clothing at a much cheaper rate (indeed a MUCH cheaper rate considering the last time I ordered from Nasty Gal I had to pay a hefty ¬£65 just in duties and tax alone). As much as I really adore there clothing this is just not sustainable. Right now though, I am eyeballing this hot Nasty Gal dress. I LOVE the front slits, the length of the dress and the white rib detailing. It’s simple but effective Phwooar! It’s out of stock in my size at the moment (surprise surprise), but sooner or later it WILL be mine! moo ha ha ha moo ha ha ha!

Elegant Simplicity..(by the way I must confess this model they have chosen to model a lot of there wares is very beautiful – Nasty Gal also do well in this regard)

Need I say more…

seine dress

I’m willing myself to be selective about what I purchase despite my intense desire to own most of what I see on there as my funds will only stretch so far. I think I will definitely go for the black dress with the slits (when it is back in stock), and the earrings and the necklace and see how I go!

You must admit though guys, these are pretty nice threads! ūüėČ
