I have always wanted to find a perfume I could call my signature scent, and I think after years and years of searching, I have decided that it just might be “Flower Market” by Maison Martin Margiela. It is has a Grasse rose petal base, with Sambac jasmine and tuberose with cedar and moss. Seriously, this fragrance will teleport you to the floating flower market by The Singel canal in Amsterdam.
I’ve spent this entire week getting dolled up in Nadine Shami fine jewelry and it’s been an absolute treat. I know that boyfriends and husbands have a difficult time picking out valentines day gifts for their significant others so I’m here to save the day! The reason why I think jewelry is the way to go; is because it lasts forever. We won’t be impressed with the new iPhone, even if it DID have our names engraved on the back. And that box of chocolates you thought was adorable will be the cause of your misery next week when we’ve put on 3 kgs after scoffing down the whole thing. Mmmm… Actually, chocolate is always a nice additon. Scratch that! We love chocolate- no matter how many pounds we pile on. We want a Nadine Shami jewelry piece and a box of heart shaped chocolates. Nadine even has a gorgeous pair of rose stud earrings if you want roses that will actually last forever this valentines day!
Rolling Stone Interviewer: “Why can’t you be alone without Yoko?”
John Lennon: “But I can be alone without Yoko, but I just have no wish to be. There’s no reason on earth why I should be alone without Yoko. There’s nothing more important than our relationship, nothing. And we dig being together all the time. Both of us could survive apart but what for? I’m not going to sacrifice love, real love for any whore or any friend or any business, because in the end you’re alone at night and neither of us want to be. and you can’t fill a bed with groupies. It doesn’t work. I don’t want to be a swinger. I’ve been through it all and nothing works better than to have someone you love hold you”
“You are the finest, loveliest, tenderest, and most beautiful person I have ever known- and even that is an understatement.” – Scott to Zelda
”Goodnight dear. If you were in my bed it might be the back of your head I was touching, where the hair is short, or it might be up in the front where it makes little caves above your head. But wherever it was, it would be the sweetest place, the sweetest place.” – Zelda to Scott
