Smiles.....*cheesy Alert*

So you ask what is the deal with smiles...they can brighten up your day, they can start a whole new chapter, they are great ice breakers...and from someone you love can shatter the earth and make your heart melt...

As you can tell I have a slight weakness for smiles..!! So my inspiration for this piece came after watching the accidental husband starring Uma Thurman and Jerry Dean Morgan...good film totally predictable...I did aww which means it was good...but it was soo plain..and easy watch! ANYWAY...the point is...Jerry Dean is the point! The guy has a KILLER the way he looks at Uma or did look at Izzy in Grey's anatomy...ah that  look..and the smile...Ah! Totally gets me! His smiles reminds me of what a smile really should be like...warm and safe and loving...lets not forget about Ian Somerhalder, Robert Pattinson and Chace Crawford haha..the list can go on to be fair..

A smile that will make me blush...a smile that makes me feel safe...a smile that will make my troubles disappear...a smile that would make my heart flutter and beat faster and make me slightly must be thinking ur expecting a guy to do that with a smile?! Goood luck finding that sister! lol I do understand I sound stupid....and like a total hopeless romantic but what can you do...

Now all this might seem like it exists in fairy tale land..but I disagree...How you might ask? Well I would say..the smile my mum gives me when I'm in tears and can't stop sobbing..that gives me warmth..makes me feel like I'm being looked after..makes me feel happy even thought my heart feels heavy...

Another example?...the smile I got from my little 2 year old cousin when I went back to visit after a year..she gave me her almighty grin and ran into my arms and whispered 'I love you' that smile truly made me feel loved I actually teared up!

And if you're really noisy like I am and totally bored on the train..just take a minute and see how some couple look at each other...the loving smile a guy might give to his gf...the I am so happy I am spending this minute with you right here..*well not on the train..but like in her company lol*...those little smiles can do soo much!! they mean so much at the time..they're such precious jewels..

So next time you're on the train...and you see someone looking upset or down...just smile at never know if who's day you make with your smile...or who could fall in love with you because of your smile ;)

It doesn't take long..and besides it takes less muscles to smile than it takes to go on try it..brighten someone's day!

Lots of love!

Dry Spell

Hey everyone!!

So I've been feeling a bit under the weather and totally un-inspired that's the reason why I haven't posted anything in a long time! I just didn't know what to write about...what to focus to get your attention and inspire you...


Last week I was talking with one of my childhood friends Salma...(I've known her since like primary school that's how long I've known her!) and during conversation I agreed to do a 'guest blogger' fashion piece on her blog..It was so exciting! Meee writing about fashion it was different...I've never really written about fashion altho I absolutely love it!!

Anyway...from what I presume it turned out quite alright actually!

Here's the link to her sure to check the rest of her blog out..its filled with interesting things!

I promise I will post something tomorrow I just need to be inspired first!!

be who YOU want to be..!!

Be who you want to be!

If you speak ever to anybody who’s either in high school or has been through the whole high school experience....they’ll all tell you how it’s not as easy and fun as it some they might be the best days of your life! But to others it’s a time not to remember!

For those who were lucky enough to be totally cool and have not experienced much of what I’m talking about..I’m so happy and thankful for you!  but unfortunately in today’s society this doesn’t apply to high school anymore this behaviour is not only being practised in school around children anymore...adults..Knowledgeable adults in our day to day life still act in this manner. Whether it’s at work or social gatherings, families where ever it may be...behaviour like this shouldn’t be tolerated.

There’s a great Anti Bullying PSA campaign that was launched in America this week featuring a lot of well known faces like Tim Gunn, Iain Somerhalder, Anne Hathaway.. etc talking about standing up to bullying...and never giving up. It’s a great motion to support and get behind.


Personally, I’ve been lucky enough not to come across major bullying in my high school years I was always the kid who got along with everybody and was nice to everybody....or so I thought! I didn’t experience the nasty bullying some kids these days go through but there certainly were a lot of things that could have made me less miserable in high school. Peer pressure, the pressure to conform and be just like your friends to fit talk, act, dress in a certain way so that you don’t stand out..the back stabbing the bitching the jealousy...ahh all that drama!!

Only after I moved away and came to the UK that I felt that I could be completely talk like myself to act like myself because no-one knew me and it was my opportunity to be the person I wanted to be...
I feel going through what I did in high school even though was stressful...Definitely!! But at the same time it has helped me be the person I am today. I’m no longer afraid to voice my opinion, I can dress the way I to whoever I want completely and totally who I want to be and if people don’t like it....well they’ll just have to deal with it. Through this I have made amazing friends, friends I can be so completely and totally myself and it makes me thankful to god that he’s allowed me to share my life with such people...overall I did have a great high school experience I wouldn’t change it because I do have great memories..But most of all I don’t think I regret any of it...

I think what I’m trying to say from all my rambles is...don’t let anybody tell you you’re not good’re not pretty’ll never be as happy or successful as someone else. You have to live YOUR have to make your life a life you’ll be proud of when you look back at it..Build you happy memories share them with those people who make you feel alive...wear your heart on your sleeves and most of all be strong...because those people who put you down now..Might be doing it because they’re missing something in their own lives...And the only way to get power back is to put you don’t let them get to you!!

Don’t be afraid to speak out because remember everything you’re going through today will make you so much stronger ....I always remember one thing Kandee Johnson said on her youtube channel and it literally struck home...the more people break you down..The more they make your heart shatter into a million pieces...the louder/brighter you’ll shine! Because a million shattered pieces reflect even more light to even more dimensions and places!

So never give up! Smile and let the world smile with you!! 

You are all beautiful in your own special way...and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!!

Lots of love!
(p.s....I love you Kandee!!)

Guest Blog....lil K!

Here is the last of the Guest Blogger Blogs .....for today at least this one cracked me up!

This IS a Man’s world!

Ever thought about how we speak of ourselves ladies.. i dunno about you gals but i’ve always heard us talk like we are the prey.

‘im waiting for Mr. Right to take my breath away’ – i hope you haven’t got asthma

‘Sweep me off my feet’ – you’ll hit head your hard enough

For those twilight fans – ‘Bite me’

‘Swoop me up and take me into your arms’ – do you wanna get crushed?

These are just some, im sure there’s plenty more. But do you see the pattern. I guess its nature, men are naturally the hunters, they pursue women and prey on us until we succumb to their powers. The thing is we love to be preyed upon; we taunt them with looks and our bodies. We secretly pretend that they don’t matter to us but we all know everything that we do is DIRECTLY related to them.

Dont you just love it when the guy chases you? There’s some sort of a rush about it, the feeling of being bait to a man is more alluring to us than ..i dare say CHOCOLATE! Yes i said it, god forgive me..

Despite this feeling, we are in their world. We wait for them. We act as prey for them. Think about it, if a guy doesn’t give you attention you will try and get his attention but if he doesn’t take the ‘bait’, well you move on. It’s their decision.

It truly is a Man’s world despite how far women have come since the caveMAN years we will never be the natural hunter. There are exceptions, there always are but for the majority of us, i don’t think we’ll ever be predators. However once we’ve got them bound to us legally, i think the true predator in us unleashes MUAHAHA!

Maybe it is a Woman’s world after all

Peace out! K-to-the-A-RISHMA x

The search for ‘the one’ waste of time or wait worthy?!

So this is what I wrote a couple of days ago when I was really feeling frustrated and annoyed at everything going on in my life!

People usually say you’ll find your ‘one’ one day all you have to do is wait.....
I’m sure as any girl would tell you, it’s usually effortlessly easy to sit there and think of all the qualities this ‘one’ will have and what he might look like what he is going to treat you like...and all those films like the notebook don’t really help! Lol you end up lying on your bed wishing upon stars to someday find this person...

What happens when you’re ready to find that person? When you’re thinking I’m ready to move onto the next chapter of my life with someone? So you open your heart and allow these people to enter your lives in order to find out if they really are your true match...

But what happens when you have met so many people and not one of them seems appropriate, what happens when all the prospects around you are so bleak that you’re thinking...when is my day going to come? I think my biggest fear by far would be to give my heart away to someone who wouldn’t take care of it and make it happy the way I always settle for somebody because I couldn’t find my one..   

A depressing thought I agree but it was becoming more n more of an issue in our lives...no1 around me seems to be finding anyone appropriate...our standards too high? Too picky? I don’t think what if I would like him a certain what if we try and match out dreams to a certain degree...doesn’t everybody?? But I was really starting to question my standards like seriously..

Going away for a while and taking myself out of this situation brought clarity to me that was really refreshing! I came back with a total positive attitude...I came back thinking yes he must exist...someone who will make my heart flutter and my palms sweaty and make me stutter and blush..he must exist..So what if I have to wait..So wait if I have to be patient *I’m not known for my it’s hard lol* but all this will make him even more special to will allow me to treasure him more when I do finally find him?! I’m not saying I’ve been dreaming of Iain somerhalder and I’m holding out until I’m with someone like him..*haha..but seriously he is hot lol* not by any means..but someone that makes me happy someone that would make me glow from the inside..bring out that secret inner smile...

I am not giving my heart away to someone who will not take care of it! I will hold out and gift it to someone worthy! I Don’t think any of us are picky I just think our hearts know better when someone comes along...

Girls should stand up for what they want and what makes them happy no matter how hard to road my seem!
The search for true happiness start now..!

So for this entry we're changing it up a lil bit...I talked one of my best mates to write a guest blog entry for my blog and she did such a great job!

There’s this little thing called LOVE..

It’s been going on in my head for a few years now, ‘What is this love?’ I have to know what this feels like. Whats the big deal, i mean its just a four lettered word, why is there such a weight put on it?
I’ll tell you why because its the most deepest word out there, it has the power to stop people from their normal routines, it has the desire to make one feel elated, it possesses the power to pull you towards someone like no other force. Not that i know how that feels.. i mean ive learned all this from watching movies. Big whoop!

The definition of love for me is non existant, i don’t know what it means, what it feels like and im afraid i won’t know when its my turn. I mean i thought i was ‘falling’ in love with someone waaaaay back when i was a kid but c’mon who can take a child’s feelings seriously. I blame that on the hormones. But if someone’s never known what love is then how is one meant to identify it? What if tomorrow i meet someone and it becomes serious how the hell am i supposed to really know if its TRUE love?

I think they should invent something that could identify this. Some sort of a barcode gun that when you point it at the persons heart it will scan it and reveal their feelings to you.. invasion of privacy i hear you say but dammit it would solve my problem!

But before all that can begin..we need to find a true match. What a depressing thought!

Peace out. K-to-the-A-RISHMA x
