Pretty pretty sunspots! I don't think I'll ever tire of this location. ♥
Caitlin Shearer. Full of beautiful dresses a girl can only dream of.
The beautiful gift bags at my friend Emma's 15th birthday tea party. It was a splendid day with lots of sun, good times snapped through the camera and delicious food. A lovely escape from the everyday school routine and a chance to get a little bit of colour in my skin, hehe!
This weekend was very busy... everything seemed to be on! I'm happy though because I got a lot of things done and I (think) I'm ready to face this coming week. I have another shift tomorrow night and I'm hoping it won't be as busy as my last. It's not always pleasant being sworn at by demanding customers. I guess I need to get used to being in the real world -- and that includes dealing with rude personalties, haha! I hope you had a lovely weekend too and enjoy this coming week :)
P.S: Fifty years ago today, Marilyn Monroe passed away as a result of a drug overdose. Many people ask me why I take such an interest in her and my answer is that she was not simply a 'sex object' for the media to gawk at and refer to as 'shallow' but she was a human being with serious mental problems triggered from an unstable childhood. She was sexually assaulted and was constantly suffering from abandonment by each of her several carers up until her late teen years. Behind the famous eyes and beautifully flawless face lay years and years of built up pain that she was struggling to maintain.
I think she was a marvellous actress who simply needed help, respect and the chance to shine without the 'sex' label plastered on her overly exploited exterior. She once said this quote:
"I have feelings too. I am still human. All I want is to be loved, for myself and for my talent"
I honestly hope that one day the critism will cease and she will be left to rest in peace. After all, she was just another person on this earth with troubles that were hidden away but desperately in need of help.
