Pet Peeves...


Fashion is a language and is spoken differently from person to person……. but everyone knows that one person who… lets just say has an alternative language that you don’t understand……I am sure that somewhere in the universe there is someone that may appreciate it…. Its just not you…. but that is not the problem…………the problem is despite the fact that you have never said anything negative about their choice in clothing…. coupled with you never asking their opinion on what you should wear, why would you??.... you don't speak the same language right?...…..however this person is always giving everybody advice about their closet! telling them what they should or shouldn't wear.………On having that thought I started too think about other pet peeves....

People who don’t hold doors…. Which leads nicely into….

People you hold doors for … that don’t say thank you….

Able body people who park in disable spots…. You’re a bodybuilder getting out of a Mini… I see how that could be uncomfortable for you, however that is no excuse too park in a disable spot.

People who don’t wear deodorant… when your right guard turns left… please understand that with every move you make you are spreading funk…and not the musical kind...

 Primary color matchy matchy… (black, white and shades of grey are excused)….. red top, red shoes, red purse, red lips, red earrings, red nail polish…….. you get the gist….

People who butt into conversations with a negative input…
If you have nothing nice too say… say nothing at all…

People who spit in the street.. why????? …

People who blow their nose without a tissue!.... What the hell is that about????

Bad customer service…..no explanation needed… we have all experienced it…

People who jump the line…..

Dog owners who don’t pick up the poo!.... its rude and disgusting! That pet is part of your family and it is your responsibility to look after your family members… not mine or anybody else’s....

People who litter……. I remember driving once and the car in front of me threw a banana skin out of the window!... who are these people?????...

The man who refers too women as dudes….. just stop it.

The person who insist my name is Judy even though I have told him numerous times its Q……. they don’t even sound the same!... go figure!.. which leads to….

The people who insist on renaming me…. You would think just having a letter for a name would be easy right?... nope….  I have had many conversations like this….

Person: whats your name?
Me: Q
Person: Kill
Me (in my mind… ‘Kill??? Seriously???)… No, Q.
Person: Oh Jill
Me: No Q…  as in the letter…
Person: (in persons mind…. Q???..... seriously????)….Oh Quuueeeee
Me: Ok.


The blogger who blocks the sidewalk doing a shoot when all you want too do is cross the street and get on with your day!.... oh wait…… that’s me!.... erm,... ignore that one…

What are your pet peeves?......

Layers...


Underneath it all…. We are all the same……. the heart beats the same, the blood pumps the same… and is the same color……. Underneath it all……….. underneath all the layers beyond the heart and blood……… there is  a profound similarity in mankind……. it’s a feeling……. that needs too be fed….. its a feeling that not all of us are aware of ....

‘The truth is that we are all waiting… all of us…. against insurmountable odds… for something extraordinary too happen to us’ – Khaled Hosseini ‘And the Mountains Echoed’

May it be love….. An extraordinary love………… a person……. An extraordinary being………. A situation………. An extraordinary one………… that would feed that feeling.....

Underneath all the layers………. We are all the same.

Muse Diaries...


I am pleased too announce that I am Muse for the month of January via HauteStreet.com..........

You can read my interview with Haute Street by clicking the link below… have a read…. You might learn a few things about me that you didn’t know….


Haute Street is the brainchild and heralded by the irrepressible Joey Tierney and her right hand gem Cher Aldip.

Haven’t  heard of them?.... get to know!....

Joey is a woman who champions and highlights the successes of women.... she is petite in frame, but don’t let that fool you, her weight is carried within her ever forward thinking beautiful mind. She is a stylist that knows her craft and uses that tool too expand and share her creative vision.

Cher is without a doubt one of the coolest chicks I have met in a long time!!... she has the gift of magnetism and her aura is pure. She has a wonderful way of making one feel completely perfect even whilst in the middle of a critique! Working with her has been an extreme pleasure and I look forward too seeing what she will throw at me next.
 
The shoot for the mag took place in L.A.... Cher was creative director and felt it was important for me too wear things from my own closet that I would normally wear on a daily basis....as the core ethos of the piece was about me and my life.... I rocked up with a bag of my normal attire too their lovely studio (dangerously 2 steps away from Rodeo Drive) and we spent the afternoon shooting, drinking coffee and giggling!..... hope you like the piece, its was lovely too collide with the ladies and my other muse sisters on our respective journeys.
