A LOVE AFFAIR WITH THE STRIPES AND WRITTEN WORD!





All stripe everything'



Hey lovies,

Hoping y’all are hale and hearty’ am doing just fine back here’ don’t want to rant about the past two weeks which have been for lack of a better word ; downcast; came down with some bacterial infection last week and this present week  my emotions have been all over the damn place…. Pull yourself together Suzie’
Today is beautiful’ it’s sunny outside and warm. Although I look like a freaking joke with my jacket and pull neck I am quite okay today. Please God don’t let anything ruin my joy. 

So I wanted to let you know that before the fashion there was a girl with a dream. Yeah; I dreamt about writing. I have been intrigued by the written word since way back when I was little. It’s the only thing I really felt I was good at somehow. I didn’t know what I was going to write about but I would figure it out somehow in the long run. So growing up I discovered my other love; fashion and got completely taken by it. I remember back in high school I would look at girls on magazines and say to myself…someday I will look like that’ pretty dresses’ shoes and have a cushy lifestyle. But life happened’lol. 

I traded my pen for polka dots and my paper for shoes (a girl’s best friend)…but still found time every now and then to pen little escapades that tugged at my heart. So I kindah figured I want to write more, not that I will abandon the fash I would love to incorporate both. I still consider myself an amateur considering I only have pretty basic skill (that English Literature degree; bucket list item). Who knows dreams do come true.Right!

On matters fash’ I have always been inclined to polka dots as if I haven’t mentioned it a kazillion times but slowly I discovered the gorgeousness that is stripes and went gaga’ All stripe everything’ Thing is stripes like polka have this calming effect when you look at them. You kindah get carried away. So I put together some striped looks for your eyes only and you know i had to throw in a jam...Natasha Bedingfields 'These Words' been listening to it amidst my daze. love love this song.

Enjoy lovies


this is too gorge'
so love this jumpsuit'




lust item...somebody?anybody?


miss lady lookin good while chasing her ambitions

These words are my own Natasha Bedingfield

Threw some chords together
The combination D-E-F
It's who I am, it's what I do
And I was gonna lay it down for you
Try to focus my attention
But I feel so A-D-D
I need some help, some inspiration
(But it's not coming easily)
Whoah oh!

Trying to find the magic
Trying to write a classic

Don't you know, don't you know, don't you know?
Waste-bin full of paper
Clever rhymes, see you later

These words are my own
From my heart flow
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
There's no other way
To better say
I love you, I love you...
Read some Byron, Shelly and Keats
Recited it over a Hip-Hop beat
I'm having trouble saying what I mean
With dead poets and drum machines
I know I had some studio time booked
But I couldn't find a killer hook
Now you've gone & raised the bar right up
Nothing I write is ever good enough


These words are my own
From my heart flow
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
There's no other way
To better say
I love you, I love you!

I'm getting off my stage
The curtains pull away
No hyperbole to hide behind
My naked soul exposes
Whoah.. oh.. oh.. oh.. Whoah.. oh..

Trying to find the magic
Trying to write a classic
Waste-bin full of paper

Clever rhymes, see you later

These words are my own
From my heart flow
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you

That's all I got to say,
Can't think of a better way,
And that's all I've got to say,
I love you, is that okay?
carefree days

COME WAKE ME UP AND CAN SOMEONE SAY TGIF!


COME WAKE ME UP RASCAL FLATTS

I can usually drink you right off of my mind
But I miss you tonight
I can normally push you right out of my heart
But I'm too tired to fight

Yeah the whole thing begins
And I let you sink into my veins
And I feel the pain like it's new
Everything that we were,
Everything that you said,
Everything that I did and that I couldn't do
Plays through tonight

Tonight your memory burns like a fire
With every one it grows higher and higher
And I can't get over it, I just can't put out this love
I just sit in these flames and pray that you'll come back
Close my eyes tightly, hold on and hope that I'm dreaming
Come wake me up

Turn the TV up loud just to drown out your voice, but I can't forget
Now I'm all out of ideas and baby I'm down to my last cigarette
Yeah, you're probably asleep deep inside of your dreams while I'm sitting here crying and trying to see
Yeah, wherever you are baby now I am sure you moved on and aren't thinking twice about me
And you tonight

Tonight your memory burns like a fire
With every one it grows higher and higher
I can't get over it, I just can't put out this love
I just sit in these flames and pray that you'll come back
Close my eyes tightly, hold on and hope that I'm dreaming

I know that you're movin' on
I know I should give you up
But I keep hopin' that you'll trip and fall back in love
Time's not healin' anything
Baby, this pain is worse than it ever was
I know that you can't hear me, but baby I need you to save me tonight

Tonight your memory burns like a fire
With every one it grows higher and higher
I can't get over it, I just can't put out this love
I just sit in these flames and pray that you'll come back
Close my eyes tightly, hold on and hope that I'm dreaming
Come wake me up
Oh, I'm dreaming
Come wake me up
Oh, I'm dreaming

RETRO FUTURE AND A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN'





Hello lovelies’

TGIF! OK am in no shape to be saying cheers to the freaking weekend thanks to my boss who just made tomorrow a work day (aaaargh) Anyhow I keep promising myself I will not gloat; won’t let life get to me…I will be happy just gotta buy me a juicer and turn those lemons to yum lemonade.

So am trying to get some work done here but I keep going round in circles; can’t seem to get anything done. The best thing about my morning today is that am listening to some Life house, Gavin Degraw, and the glorious Emeli Sande. Lord only knows that’s a straight up ticket to musical heaven. Emeli’s song my kind of love’ (don’t ever question that my heartbeat is only for you)…. God please ‘I gotta feel that kind of love before the show is over please! get a grip girl! Sometimes I get carried away and forget that this isn’t a personal diary’ smh .

Moving on swiftly’ Yours truly went for a Fashion event dubbed Retro Future at the 680 Hotel last Saturday night’ I had me one of them rough weeks and really needed to  blow some steam and Retro did that for me. Sometimes I feel I have to do something to stay sane ‘do you guys feel me?‘when the skies are grey and all the doors are closing…I look for a safe haven and I find it next to me. Blame that on an overdose of miss Emeli’ God I heart her. She speaks to me.

So Retro Future was out of this world’ there were designers showcasing a lot of awesome goodies, musical bits and they threw in a dose of poetry ‘and got my evening made. Kudos to the lovely Lilian Mcanyona, Enoch, Jackie and the Kat Model Fam. Y’all rock. Splendid evening that was.

There’s a whole lot of pictures from the event but I picked a select few. The lighting from where I was seated wasn’t all that so it explains the low quality images but am glad I was there to take it all in. Since the event had a retro vibe’ I wore a cute little piece I got the other day on some  retail therapy.It’s a sparkly vintage dress with a Peter Pan Collar that screams girly girl. I love that i got to twirl in it. (sweet) Below I have a shot of the gorgeous Paula Patton wearing a similar dress and an amazing blogger Soraya Cavalho rocking her number.

 I’mma leave y’all with Retro snippets and a song that’s got me feeling all kinds of emotion ‘ EMELI SANDE 'HEAVEN'

Xo SUE


 



  



 




 
 









Emeli Sande…Heaven

Will you recognize me in those flashing lights?

I try to keep my heart beat but i can`t get it right.

Will you recognize when i`m lying on my back?
Something`s gone inside me and i can`t get it back.

Oh heaven,oh heaven i wake with good intentions,but the day it always lasts too long.
Then i`m gone.

Oh heaven,oh heaven i wake with good intentions,but the day it always lasts too long.

Then i`m gonex8

Will you recognize me when i`m stealing from a car.
You`re not gonna like me i`m nothing like before.

Will you recognize me when i lose another friend.
Will you learn to leave me or give me one more try again.

Oh heaven,oh heaven i wake with good intentions,but the day it always lasts too long.
Then i`m gone.

Oh heaven,oh heaven i wake with good intentions,but the day it always lasts too long.

Then i`m gonex8

Oh heaven,oh heaven i wake with good intentions.

You say that you`re away i try but always break cause the day always lasts too long.

Then i`m goneX16
