Dream Wedding

200th post!! How to celebrate? Let's talk about weddings again! My Dream Wedding Dress Designers post was so popular, it got so many views and is continuing to get heaps of views everyday! No girl can get tired of talking about weddings, so here's another one. I have so much fun just looking through inspirational photos!

Ok, so I had a post about dream wedding dresses, but recently I discovered a designer which inspired me to think about my dream wedding, and not the dress.

I think it's a bit obsessive to actually plan the whole wedding in your mind when you're not even engaged. I mean I basically did that, thinking about dresses I want to wear for my wedding before I had even met my boyfriend. But a wedding is a girl's fantasy. I can secretly indulge in these photos and thoughts right? My boyfriend doesn't need to know about it, I don't want to be a crazy girlfriend. There's nothing wrong with a little fantasizing.


SO back to this new designer: "New Zealand based designer Kelsey Genna recently launched a gorgeous website showcasing her handcrafted bohemian wedding gowns, stories of real brides wearing her affordable designs, and profiles of inspiring people in the industry. There’s enough stunning imagery to inspire any future bride!" (HonestlyWTF)

The photos I saw from this designer made me want a bohemian inspired wedding with lots and lots of flowers, set in nature. I am never the type to want conventional things, for example having takeaway McDonald's for our one month anniversary, so the wedding is bound to be quite unconventional. I definitely don't want a wedding at the beach, I'm not very fond of the beach even though Perth's beach is amazing, but for a wedding, not the best place.

Life is But A Dream

Even if you don't like Beyonce's songs, or maybe even her as a person, you will be changed after watching this. Extremely empowering. Seriously, I feel like I can achieve anything after watching this!

Interviews of Victoria Secret angels about 'Love', 'Dating,' and their 'First Kiss'.

Apparently Lily Aldridge didn't have her first kiss until her wedding day, but the first video says otherwise so not too sure. But if that is true, that's amazing.

Quote from Adriana on love and waiting…

I believe love just happens once. You can be mistaken, you can think you are in love, but after a while you discover that you’re really not. Real love is different.
“Sex is for after marriage. [Men] have to respect that this is my choice. If there’s no respect, that means they don’t want me. When we’re traveling together for the first time, we sleep in different rooms. That’s the number one thing," she told GQ in 2008.

How old are you, anyway?
Um, my age, I’m gonna leave, like, free for everybody to think about. I’m gonna leave it a secret, so when I get old, nobody will know.
Did you always plan on being a supermodel?
When I started, I was too young to know what I wanted. But today I would like to be a doctor. I want to be a pediatry…how do you call it, pediatrician?
Yeah. Pediatrician. So you like kids?
Not really. Depends. If they act well behaved, yes. When they start screaming, I don’t like them. But this is my plan. I might change my mind. For now, God has given me a lot of work.
I take it you’re religious?
Yes! I am Catholic. [she pulls out the cardboard scapular hanging around her neck, under her big gray sweater]

You're Rare Yu

Timing is such a delicate but truly amazing thing.

-The night he took me to the riverside to ask me to be his girlfriend, it was an unplanned full moon.
-The night of our first date, I saw my first ever shooting star, in the part of the city where it's too bright to even truly appreciate the normal stars.
-The night of our one month anniversary (tonight), the moon was a bright full circle of a beautiful red, which turned an amazing glowing yellow when I got to see it.

All these amazing astronomical events coincide with the amazing events of our life together. It may be pure coincidence, or maybe some kind of holy force doing all this. What ever it is... is what it is. And what it is, is amazing.  Absolutely. Unbelievably. Amazing.

Seeing these astronomical events are rare, but finding someone like him that compliments me so perfectly is even rarer. "I will not forget these feelings I am having for you in the beginning. These feelings shall remain until the day I die.

When we fight with each other, I won't forget to fight for each other. I won't forget to appreciate this blessing. I won't ever take you for granted. Because something so rare, will never come again. I will never let you go."

Power Couple

I look to Beyonce and Jay Z when it comes to relationships. Not because they're famous and rich... and Beyonce is hot. But because they're both successful people independently and also as lovers. The passion they have for each other is undeniable. They have the best of both worlds. Something that everyone should strive for. Even after being married, their passion has not dulled at all.

And I truly believe my boyfriend and I (still trying to get used to calling him that) have the personalities for us to work in that way. He doesn't hold back in showing his love for me, and being such a fragile lover, I would never be able to unlove him either. We've got the passion, and he's such a hopeless romantic. I believe this passion will never go away, at least not so easily. We both understand that love needs to be worked on constantly, shown constantly. Love is work in its own way. Although we don't see each other every day, usually only once every week through uni, and sometimes not at all, he calls every night and we message each other all the time. We constantly remind each other of our feelings, and it is this persistence and never taking each other for granted, which will allow our passion to continue to burn endlessly.

Feminist Age: Does He Pay For Dinner?

The hard part about falling in love so young, is that you're falling in love with a boy, and not a man. And for a person seeking a long term relationship, it's not a boy you want in the future, it's a man.

by ~ankgas

So the tricky part is being able to see that he will become the man you want in the future. I don't know if it's silly that I'm reading this book. I started reading it after I watched the movie: Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man by Steve Harvey. But nothing's wrong with expanding your thought and analysing other people's thoughts and views. And there is this certain section in the book: ...a man -a real one, anyway- wants to feel needed. And the easiest way to help him get that high is to let him provide you. This is only fair...Providing for the ones he loves and cares about, whether it’s monetarily or with sweat equity, is a part of a man’s DNA, and if he loves and cares for you, this man will provide for you all these things with no limits.

Now I know that expecting a man to care for you financially, no questions asked, in an age in which women have been raised to be financially independent of men gives you pause; if you’ve been taught all your life to go dutch on your dates and pull out your own checkbook when it comes to paying
your bills, and you’ve been repeatedly told that you can’t depend on a man to do anything for you, then it’s understandable why you can’t wrap your mind around this simple concept. But remember what drives a man; real men do what they have to do to make sure their people are taken care of, clothed, housed, and reasonably satisfied, and if they’re doing anything less than that, they’re not men—or shall we say, he’s not your man, because he will eventually do this for someone’s daughter, maybe not you.

For sure, all too many men shirk this responsibility, whether out of selfishness, stupidity, or sheer inability or a combination of all three... But ask any one of those men who aren’t doing right by themselves or the ones they love what they regret most, and I’ll bet you a majority of them will say the same thing: they wish they had the ability to provide.

Of course, some men simply refuse to share the money in their pockets with their women. As some rap songs and hiphop magazines tell you, these men feel they’re being “played” if they provide anything of monetary value to the opposite sex. Some men even label any and every woman who expects her intended to provide for her the very handy, decisively ugly phrase gold digger...

It Hurts

  • Mood:  Tearful
  • Listening to: Breathe- Taylor Swift
I don't understand why it has to be so hard. Last night was amazing, I had the time of my life. We were acting like little kids in the dark playing chasey, hanging off the flying fox, and kicking drink bottles into the soccer goals. My walls were coming down because I've been trying to let him in. I found my flaw and I've been working on it. It's not fair for him that I'm so scared to show I love him.

But here I am, tears running down my face. My walls up again. I don't know if I can take them down before the next time I see him again. And it's not fair on him because it's got nothing to do with what he's done or hasn't done. He's been so understanding. But seeing her cry today, being worried about me, worried that I'd get hurt by him to the point of wanting to commit suicide. It hurts. 

I try to reassure her, and I guess at the same time reassure myself, but it's not getting through to her. And it hurts to see her crying, to hear her bring up her past. She's worried about me, and the things she says scares me. Why oh why does it have to be so hard? Why do we have to worry so much about the future? Why can't we just live a little, fall in love without fear of losing your life? 

It hurts so much.
