If there’s one thing I love, it is ANYTHING Pretty! Looking at something pretty excites me – gets me to go, “OOOOooohhh; look at that” and then share it with any-and everybody who wants to see and listen.

Thus I started this Feature: All Things Pretty

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed looking for them…ahhhh…the prettiness!

Ahhh..all the lovely patterns..LOVE

Something old, something new, something Borrowed, something BLUE.

New.York.City - The love of all things Fashion and Pretty

I ABSOLUTELY Fell in love with this Picture...that's it; it was PRETTY

This Vogue Cover represents ALL THINGS PRETTY!

OH.MY.WORD - I saved the best for last - It made me smile.

I am quite an avid fan of the Sex and the City Series and both movies so it was quite exciting to find that a prequal of SATC will launch soon. There has been rumours going around that Blake Lively will play the famous fashionista, Carrie Bradshaw but her representatives quickly denied it.

Although she didn’t make the cut for Carrie she did indeed get a part – she will be playing the Sex and Success Obsessed Samantha; I am Stoked.

The Lovely and super talented Blake Lively will fulfil the role of the Sexed-obsessed Samantha Jones!!

Carrie wouldn’t have been the perfect fit for her – especially fulfilling the role of the DRAMA Queen, Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl.

You are probably wondering; if  Blake is Samantha, who are the other Cast Members – well you need not wait any longer.

I introduce to you – the SATC Prequal Cast Members:

Disney Star, Selema Gomez will be fulfilling the role of  ‘Prim and Proper’, Charlotte.

The work and Family obsessed Miranda will be played by none other than Emma Roberts.

And the Honorary Role of Carrie Bradshaw has been scooped up by…Elizabeth Olsen — the younger sister of fellow child-stars-business-women-actresses-turned-design duo, Mary Kate and Ashley.  It looks like Success runs in the Olsen Family!!

Model and co-designer, Agyness Deyn is most definitely not an eyesore and Lucky for South Africa she has landed the job to Model for Mr Price. She has been involved with them for quite some time.

When the Images of the Lovely Looking Agyness was released, my heart skipped a beat! Mr Price could NOT have made a BETTER decision on their preferred model – I will actually go out and buy one – if not all – of these dresses because it looks so HOT on her!

Nuff Said.

Comedic Actor, Russell Brand has known Amy Winehouse for years. He has written the most beautiful and touching (in his own way) – letter to Amy Winehouse called, “For Amy” and posted it on his blog, http://www.russellbrand.tv.

Below you will find a piece that really stood out for me:

I arrived late and as I made my way to the audience through the plastic smiles and plastic cups I heard the rolling, wondrous resonance of a female vocal. Entering the space I saw Amy on stage with Weller and his band; and then the awe. The awe that envelops when witnessing a genius. From her oddly dainty presence that voice, a voice that seemed not to come from her but from somewhere beyond even Billie and Ella, from the font of all greatness. A voice that was filled with such power and pain that it was at once entirely human yet laced with the divine. My ears, my mouth, my heart and mind all instantly opened. Winehouse. Winehouse? Winehouse! That twerp, all eyeliner and lager dithering up Chalk Farm Road under a back-combed barnet, the lips that I’d only seen clenching a fishwife fag and dribbling curses now a portal for this holy sound. So now I knew. She wasn’t just some hapless wannabe, yet another pissed up nit who was never gonna make it, nor was she even a ten-a-penny-chanteuse enjoying her fifteen minutes. She was a fucking genius.”

“When you love someone who suffers from the disease of addiction you await the phone call. There will be a phone call.”

“We need to review the way society treats addicts, not as criminals but as sick people in need of care. We need to look at the way our government funds rehabilitation. It is cheaper to rehabilitate an addict than to send them to prison, so criminalisation doesn’t even make economic sense. Not all of us know someone with the incredible talent that Amy had but we all know drunks and junkies and they all need help and the help is out there. All they have to do is pick up the phone and make the call. Or not. Either way, there will be a phone call.

It sure makes you think doesn’t it?!
