An Open Letter to Boys

We’re single girls and while we’re not on a serious lookout for love, we cannot resist the charms of the boys. Not all the boys as we have found out in our recent nights out. We know that it takes a lot of courage to go up to someone you don’t know and try to get their attention. We’ve done it too (once I went up to a beautiful man only to find out he’s gay – totally broke my heart) and it’s nerve-wracking especially when you think you’ll be rejected. So do not see this as only an open letter of advice to the boys in clubs and pubs who think “they’re the man” and can get any girl they want but more of what not to do list in case you were looking for a line.

Just so you know girls do not feel bad about turning down a guy who tries to chat you up with an awful line or gesture. Here’s a little secret, just saying hello and introducing yourself will do wonders. It may not work but you’re more likely not to get a drink in your face or have the manager ask you to leave. That’s right, harass us enough and we will go diva.

So I’d like to say a big Dude Please to the following types of guys:

To the guy who thought “I’m like Visa, I’ll take you places” was going to get him some action, dude please.

To the guys who think that by dancing close enough to us, we’re going to magically let you into our circle and become your love slaves, dude please.

To the guys who follow you around in the hopes you’ll turn around and say “You’re just what I was looking for”, dude please.

To guys who grab your hands and call you beautiful, not as bad as some of the others, thanks for noticing my looks but seriously, dude please.

To the guys who wear wedding rings, dude please.

To the guys who bite you, (this happened to Blue Eyes) that’s gross if we don’t know you and it leaves marks our mothers will see, therefore dude please.

To the guys who are drunk, you don’t make sense and more than not, spill your drink on us (it takes effort to look like that so blotch it up) so, dude please.

To the guys who wear mesh tops, Crocs or white Saturday Night Fever suits, these really bug me and I’m not sure what girl with style and class would want to get all up in that so there a loud dude please!

Let's All Take A Few Minutes...

...and appreciate the beauty of these items I found over on Net-A-Porter.

Whenever I'm feeling sad I try and buy me some happiness. Unfortunately my credit card has been a little abused and I'm anxiously waiting for payday (when it comes around you'll find me camping outside the ATM) so for the moment I'll have to do with just looking.

Things I've Realised

I listen to Lady Gaga too much. Yesterday my mom called me and when I couldn’t talk I said “Sorry I cannot hear you I’m kinda busy, k-k-k-kinda busy.” May need to switch back to my 80s collection for a while.

I love dressing up in winter. Yes, it’s freezing and it’s a mission to even get out of the warm bed but afterwards it’s all worth it. Layering is a big thing in our flat. Also we love accessorizing with scarves, gloves and hats. So I think deep down I’m a winter baby. Also I get to wear my beloved boots. Major drawback about summer, you cannot wear boots. Well you can, but you might get called a hussy.

That negative people need to move away from me. I’m not talking about sad people or people who have real problems. I’m talking about the moany cows that always look on the bad side of life. Instead of trying to cheer them up, I’m walking away. I’m not a biatch I have just realized that these people will always find a way to be grumpy gills so instead I’m avoiding them. They will not bring down my ray of light.

I’m stuck in a coffee rut. I love my Vida but I’m thinking I need to branch out a little. So this weekend the gays and I are heading out to find a new haunt. If you have any suggestions (particularly one that serves food) in the City please let me know.

Trying to be Positive

So yesterday was officially renamed The Day From Hell. So many bad things happened and I was on the verge of tears too many times.

I don't want to relive any of it, so instead of wallowing in self-pity - which I did for most of the evening yesterday, by the way depressed does not go well with a wrap dress - I have decided to remain positive. Especially since after all my shit went down, I saw someone who clearly had real problems. That put mine into perspective.

So I did what any skinny bitch would do, I put on my big girl pants, extra mascara and some high, high heels and I'm dealing with it. Actually that's a lie, my pants are not that big ;).

So in order to be happy I'm going to list some things that make me happy. Please feel free to add to the list. Have a great Thursday!

Chuck Bass

Lady Gaga's The Fame Monster


Henry Cavil

Roland Mouret's Galaxy Dress
