So I’ve vanished from the blog-o-sphere for about 2 months. Sort of my fault, sort of not. The not bit being my laptop getting taken away from me (long story =P) and the yes bit being that I just haven’t really seen anything that inspires me, coupled with plain laziness and my increasingly lack of time in the time when I thought I’d have endless amounts of time to do nothing. Ah well. Well, I’m pleased to say “I’MMMM BBACCCCKK!!” with a new job too! Eek!! I’m so so sooo excited! It’s for Myer working at the Benefit beauty counter in Chadstone and Bourke st stores as a “beauty advisor” (love the title). I can’t wait! Woopie!

Moving on, it’s 2008!! And borrowing Lite ‘n’ Easy’s catch phrase, “new year, new you!” I can’t wait! I’ve finally finished high school *tear*, turned 18 and hopefully, starting uni this year! However, instead of making the usual new years resolution that I will have forgotten what it was even about by mid-January, I’ve decided to come up with 5 goals that I would like to achieve by the end of this year. In no particular order…

1) Save up $3000.
2) Achieve a credit or distinction average in uni.
3) Get my driver’s liscene by June! (P’s)
4) Be more consistent with my blog posts and improve my writing.
5) Lose 5 kilos, tone up and preferably have some sort of work-out/training/getting fit program thing in place.

I know, most of them do sound a little outrageous, but hey? I won’t know if I can do it if I don’t try right? Hmm, wish me luck!

One last thing, happy new year everyone! I hope you all have an awesome year filled with everything that you could ever wish for and want!

Christian Dior, the French fashion house that has been not only around for decades, but has also been noted for its extravagance and beauty time and time again, have put out a video that shows the haute couture runway shows from the years gone by. When the runway compilation fends we meet John Gilliano, who talks us through his favourite Couture dresses – some his own designs and some from the days of Christian Dior himself.

I love Christian Dior. It has been one of, if not, my favourite haute couture design houses. Especially with their dramatic runway shows, elaborate designs and Gilliano as their head designer, we’ve seen Dior go from strength to strength.

It seems as though the shift from the normal catwalks to something a bit “different” has taken a step further.

After the stunning Fendi Spring/Summer 08 show presented by Karl Lagerfeld on the Great Wall of China, which had a total of 88 models who were wearing a mixture of new items and clothes from the Spring/Summer collection walked along an 88 meter runway (the number 8 is extremely lucky in China), Pierre Cardin has staged his collection at his own bigger and more exotic location on the Gobi Desert.

At Fendi, the Kaiser had 500 guests climbed the steep stone steps to the wall to watch the amazing show. Guests included Thandie Newton, Ziyi Zhang, Kate Bosworth and James Rousseau. “I think it’s the first fashion show visible from the moon,” Bernard Arnault, chairman of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton. The incredibly ambitious project highlights the growing importance of China as a place where “things are happening”. The show was not linked to any boutique openings although China can already boast ten Fendi stores. [Source: WWD]

Fendi great wall

The 4,000 mile long wall was perfect for the show. Lagerfeld commented, “In fact, this wall was built like a runway…Can you imagine the physical difficulty in building something like this in those days?”

And then Pierre Cardin comes along and decides to try and out-do the Kaiser with his very own fashion spectacular!
“I’ve been on a lot of voyages,” Cardin told WWD. “But this one was very special for me. The light and the emptiness and the color of the sand against the blue sky — it was like showing fashion on the edge of infinity.”

Pierre Cardin

The show was thought of as a prelude to a musical production for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing which Chinese officials have invited Cardin to stage. I wonder what his designs will be like in Beijing… [Source: WWD, Trendhunter Magazine]

It seems like every celebrity these days are getting into the fashion business. Though it makes sense, do we really want to buy something that the likes of Paris Hilton and co. have designed or endorsed? Judging by their fashion choices alone, I’d say no.
However, one American designer handbag and small leathergoods company in particular who seems to really have taken on the concept of celebrity endorsements and has now developed it as far as to have current “It” girl Hayden Panettiere design her own “it” bag is Donney & Bourke. Having already had celebrity spokespeople such as Mischa Barton and Lindsay Lohan to front their advertising campaigns and Emma Roberts (Julia Roberts’ niece) co-design a bag, they’ve now decided to up the anty with Miss Panettiere designing her very own ‘dream bag’ in collaboration with Peter Dooney.

Hayden and Dooney & Bourke

“I wanted to do something people haven’t seen from Dooney & Burke before, so my bag is red patent leather,” Hayden said.

The designing process began with Hayden describing to Dooney just what she envisioned: a large leather shoulder bag with puffy pleats, a buckle closure and great style. Sketches were drawn by the design team, then Dooney transformed her ideas into prototypes at Dooney & Bourke’s design studio in Florence, Italy. After a few changes from Hayden, we have the “HP” bag.

The “dream bag” will go on sale December and retail for $500. No, you wont be paying $500 for patent leather, you’ll be paying $500 for the 18k gold accents. Also it is available in black, brown, red and white.

Seems like the “Emma” from Donney & Bourke weren’t enough. Neither are the ever exclusive and forever loved classic “Kelly” and “Birkin” bags that Vicky B seems to have an endless supply of.

I want a bag to be named after me. The “Daniella” …has a nice ring to it 😀

EVERY BOY, EVERY GIRL! SPICE UP YOUR LIFE!!! AHHHHHHHH…!! SLAM IT TO THE LEFT, IF YOU’RE HAVING A GOOD TIME….

Spice Girls are bbbaaackkk!! And here’s a sneak peek at their new video for their single “Headlines (Friendships Never End)”.


Personally, I think that it sucks. Come on girls! Where’s the “girl power” gone? The peace signs? The hyper jumping around, sporty spice kicking and scary spice growling?!! All I see in this video is posing, posing, more posing and showing off of your body parts while you croon about headlines. I want action! I want energy!! Not a song that I will fall asleep to and an equally boring video!! But damn girls, milfs much? Posh spice is 33, Scary spice is 32, Baby spice is 31, Sporty is 33 and Ginger is 35. What the? When I’m that age, I hope I look like them. 😛

However, having said that, I STILL AND WILL ALWAYS LOVE THE SPICE GIRLS!! (and I do admit that I’m falling in love with this song, it’s growing on me. Shame about the video though).

SOOOOO TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT, WHAT YOU REALLY REALLY WANNNNTT. I’LL TELL YOU WHAT I WANT WHAT I REALLY REALLY WANT….

for making you guys think I’m dead or something. Though I AM partially dead right now, and will be until the 19th November. Why? BECAUSE I HAVE EXAMS!! *sighs* So to make up for the lack of posts and whatnot, here’s a beautiful commercial that I’m in love with.

It makes me want the product soooo bad, even more than usual! Which is saying something 😛

Yesterday was the last day of classes for us year 12’s FOREVER!!! *sniffs*

Fourteen years of schooling -if I include kindergarten. Wow, 14, that’s like, MY WHOLE LIFE!! I can’t believe how fast it’s flown by. I still remember my first day of high school, year 7 where everyone stuck with their own primary school friends and didn’t mix becuase everyone was at a shy and gawky stage of their lives. And then year 10. When I transferred to my current school. Shit guys, I’ve been at my current school for only three years but it feels like 10 years. I love you all so much and don’t want to leave!! 😦

Well, before I start babbling on and crying over my laptop, I have to say how awesome it’s been knowing each and everyone of you guys. Even though I probably didn’t get to know some of you as well as I would’ve liked to, I STILL LOVE YOU!! =D haha

Anyway, as I was saying, yesterday was the last day of classes for us, and we also had ayear 12 concert which was TOTALLY random and unplanned. But thank GOD it turned out quite well! Even though there were a few awkward bits here and there -mostly due to my hosting when I didn’t think before I spoke (woops, sorry =]) but yeah! It was fun! Oh, and before I forgot, it was free dress day and everyone looked awesome!

I’ll post a few photo’s from yesterday and the past few days of this week. And if I can at a later date, I’ll include some clips of the concert.

Oh, and check out the reception where we’re going to have out formal. It’s called Merrimu Receptions. CAN’T WAIT! *squeaks*
