Christmas has come early ladies- as early as the 25th of November at Legit stores. Legit has collaborated with the wonderful Gavin Rajah on a capsule limited edition collection. I cannot believe how lucky we are to be treated to Gavin's designs in amazing quality but without the devastating price tag.Gavin Rajah is synonymous with opulence, luxury ...expensive, exquisite and one if his designs will ordinarily set you back a couple of thousands of Rands- but thanks to our lucky stars Legit and Gavin Rajah we can now own a piece of this man at department store prices. Judging by the promotional photos we are in for a treat.

Great tv series are an obsession of mine- once I fall in love with a show, I have to watch every episode ever made back to back..without pause. Today I am sharing my crazy love for Revenge- Ok so this show is a bit on the soapie side. Great looking people, diabolical plots or revenge and elaborate plans of murder- everything a good soapie needs. 

The show is loosely based on the Count of Monte Christo- the plot revolves around Emily Thorne whose father was framed for multiple murder by of the most powerful family in the Hamptons the Graystons. Emily the picture of perfection spends her days trying to get the Graystons back for what they did to her father, first on her plan is to marry their beloved son Daniel. Trust me its good stuff.

The show is on season 3- seasons 1 and 2 have Ashely Madekwe as a social climbing wanna be rich assistant to the Graystons.

You are as important as the Stars

This blog post is inspired by my blogger friend Sam J from Frills and Thrills; every Friday she posts something inspirational on her blog. Today I woke up needing such an inspirational something.... So I decided to take a page from Sam's book and post this really wonderful poem Desderata By Max Ermann. It always seems to make me feel better about anything, no matter how awful I may perceive it to be. I hope it makes you feel better too about your "stuff" too.

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
 Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.

But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
