C'est Amour

Love YouLove YouLove YouLove You Love You
Sonnet 130
My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask'd, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
   And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
   As any she belied with false compare. 
This is a sonnet written by William Shakespeare that I fell in love with at 15 years old mainly due to the fact that I had to spend many painstakingly hours analysing it for my English GCSE.  It is very honest and simplistic.  It shows us that beauty (by whatever way you choose to define it) is not the be all and end all. William's mistress is hardly a goddess but he loves her nonetheless. Personality and having a genuine connection with the one you love  is far more important when it comes to matters of the heart ; after all if you don't find your partner the least bit engaging, funny, warm, personable and your best friend then why are you even bothering?
Love You Love You Love You Love You Love You
It is refreshing to read a poem that isn't lovey dovey and gushing. It is frank and truthful and for that ,Sonnet 130 remains one of my favourite sonnets ever written <3<3<3

My shoe game would be on point if I had the Tiff shoes.  I can guarantee that I would turn heads with these shoes on my feet. I'm thinking that shoes could  potentially be my christmas pressie. So if anyone wants to get them for me I would be forever greatful.  PLUS they are only $200 , not bad for these bad boys. They are worth the money. These shoes are the Tiff Shoes by Natischa Harvey and has been worn by  many celebs including Raven Symone and Dawn Richards.

They are delectable. Am offically having shoe fever. iwant iwant iwant

My Love Letter to the 90s

You know how everyone always claims that their decade was the best like oh the 60s was really swinging, oh and the 70s was groovy baby and the 80s was booming....... well the 90s was off the chain!

The 90s was electric, rocking, swinging, grooving and all other colloquiums that you can enunciate. The 90s was truly one of the best decades ever. It marked the start of what I feel is the true technological revolution. We had the cassette-based Walkman, the big ass mobiles, Sega Mega Drive, emails and all other cool gadgets. The science and technology of the 1990’s  paved the way for the lifestyle that we take for granted today.
As a 90s baby I must say that it was simply one of the best time of my life. I was young,wild and carefree. I was oblivious to the the burden of life. A Wily kid with no worries , no cares , only interested in playing stuck in the mud or British bulldog. Playtime was epic! and school dinners was the highlight of the day. This was before Jamie Oliver came and ruined school dinner for ever (some of you may disagree but school dinners must really suck now ).

The 90s was the dawn of a new era. Great music, films and fashion faux pas.
Who remembers using the relaxer tape from the Just for Me relaxer to record the latest songs off the radio? I would run so fast to press record on that tape player that Usain Bolt had nothing on me. Whenever one of my songs came on the Just for Me tape was always ready to go, only for the stupid DJ to ruin my tune by talking over the damn song. KMT.  I would have to start from square one and wait another hour for the song to come on again so I could record it without his voice tarnishing it . *sighs* Life of a 90s child all play no work.

The 90s music was real music, not like that fake ringtone mess that qualifies as music nowadays. Artist actually sang with emotions in their voice ( I should say that they could actually hold a note unlike some ahem *Rihanna*). It was not about the bling bling or kissing girls because they liked it..... although I secretly jam to this tune. It was about emoting your feelings and singing over a kick ass beat.The 90s gave us Jodeci, Boys 2 Men,The Spice Girls, Mary J Blige, 3T my first celeb crush... Taj was the lick he was TIC (90s slang for gorgeous). It was a simpler time back then , people were actually in love and did not rush to do the horizontal conga. But nowadays we just get straight to the point right " I'm into having sex, I ain't into making love . So come give me a hug if you into getting rubbed". Ahhh the joys of dating in the Millenium LOL

I remember rocking skirt with trousers, bubble bags, platform shoes, pedal pushers  and all sorts of stuff that should have had me arrested for crimes against fashion. But no-one really cared in those days. it was all about having fun with your style and expressing yourself. We have the Spice Girls to thank for that. GIRL POWER!

oooooooh  I  must digress i'm too excited. The 90s had the best kids TV shows. I would literally run home from school to catch CBBC and CITV and tune into Arthur, Hey Arnold, Goosebumps, Are you afraid of the dark , I could go on and on but am sure you would get bored eventually. Back then kids TV show was innovative, fresh, exciting, and dare I say it... Watchable. Nowadays kids TV has gone down the drain. Bring back FUNHOUSE *sings theme tune*

Fresh Prince, Hang Time, Saved by the Bell, Student Bodies, City High...... all my fave TV shows that made me feel grown up and taught me about the birds and the bees. You helped ease my transition from a child into a teenager.

The 90s I salute you! I am honoured to have been born in this great decade. Where's all my 1990s babies at: 
' Throw your roadies in the sky .Wave 'em side to side and keep their hands high'

I heart New York by Lyndsey kelk is just one of the many reasons why i want to visit the Big Apple.

I want to walk down Manhattan, party in Harlem and chill in Brooklyn.
Of course I want to do the whole am a tourist look at me with my camera thing, but best of all I just want to be in NYC and say that I have been there and LOVED it :)

Someone should really sponsor me. It has been a longing of mine to visit this great city but alas I have no funds.

New York, New York, I cry. Come to me. I want to experience it all: the landmarks, cafe, boutiques and the infamous yellow cab.

I want to walk in the footsteps of Blair Waldorf on the Upper East Side and be a gossip girl loitering around the Met steps. I want to breathe the New York air whilst oogling the fine American Specimen. The accent is truly sexy *fans self*
New York, New York you stole my heart at 'Empire State of Mind' - Concrete jungles where dreams are made of , there's nothing you can't do, now your in New York.

Scott Pligrim vs The World

So........ went to watch Scott Pligrim vs the World the other day ( Monday to be precise) and well it was unsual, different from the norm. I found myself liking this movie, although am not particularly sure what it is about the film that i liked the most.
Here's a quick rundown of the storyline:
  • Boy meets girl
  • Boy falls in love with girl
  • Boy must defeat the girls' evil exes (not Boyfriend just exes) in order to continue dating the girl.
7evilposters Pictures, Images and Photos
The fight scenes are  executed perfectly. I liked the use of the video game style of fliming, complete with extra lives and coins scattering everywhere whenever Scott KO'ed an opponent.

The flim is odd, quirky, fun but overall DIFFERENT.
So go watch and see for yourself :)

Proposition 8 no H8

For those of you that do not know , Proposition 8 is a Californian amendment which restricts same sex marriage. It has garnered world wide attention from the opposition for being archaic, unjust and going against the declaration of independence that:
"All men are created equal"
After all, are we not all free to love????????????

Thou shall not judge. The end of days is near!

*Blink* * Blink* actually LMAO (for real) :) :):):):):):)

I know that the subject matter in this news report that am about to show you is very serious, but please forgive me for thinking that i was being punk'd. This is one of the greatest interviews ever given. Its unintentionally funny, bold and really induces a real LMAO moment. RUNANDTELL DAT Homeboy :)

AND if that wasn't enough to get you fallin of your chair, get belly cramps from laughing too hard, and running to tell your neighbour what you have just witnessed........ then feast your eyes on the remix. Yes the remix. proof that anything can be made into a joke nowadays :)

Dear J.O.B

 Dear Sir/Madame
Date:  4th September 2010
Position Applied: All (am desperate)
Full time

I have been applying to the many positions advertised on various websites from: Guardian jobs to But I have yet to succeed. My CV has been revamped more times than Rihanna has had hairstyles. My covering letters tweaked and preened within an inch of their lives. Am I doing something wrong.
You have been missing from my life now for nearly a year. I miss you. Well not you per se, but the financial security that you provide. HOWEVER, you continue to elude me as if I was some common thief in the night. Have I done something to offend you?

If so then please tell me, that way i can lie on my CV and tell you all the things that you want to hear. I just want to make it right.

I have been at university on a four year course just to please you. Ensuring that I am equipped with the right knowledge and skills that will meet the  required needs of your workforce. Was it all a waste of time?
I know that there are millions and millions of your kind out there right now, but I wish to find the right one. The dream J.O.B, the one that everyone craves.

A want a J.O.B that will allow me to travel the world. I want a J.O.B where am not going to be chained down to my desk and be asked to make coffee and  do mundane tasks everyday. a J.O.B that is flexible and realises that me and early starts are not the best of friends. In fact we are mortal enemies. Death to the AM starts. I want a J.O.B that has cool and interesting people around. A J.O.B that will afford me the luxury to buy new Clothes, Shoes, Car, House and all the little wonders of this great world. A J.O.B that will make use of my education, after all i did not spend half of  my life reading books and writing essays only to end up as a check out girl down the local supermarket. I don't think that's asking for too much.

I just want you to meet my requirements and I am sure that we will get on like a house on fire. You invest in me and I will invest in you. tit for tat. Its a dog eat dog world after all. I just don't want to end up like those people who despise their J.O.B.s. Therefore although you are taking your time to go through my application, I know that people's rejection is God's protection and that the right J.O.B is on the way soon.

But please hurry J.O.B because I am extremely broke. I don't know for how much longer I can hang on. If your testing me to see how faithful and devoted I am, then by all means do. But for the mean time can you please send a rich bloke down my way to keep me afloat until you get here because JSA (Job Seekers Allowance) can only last for so long.


I apologies I did not mean to take that tone with you. Take your time and consider me for any suitable position within your establishment.

Yours Faithfully,

Jay Bee
