"I need a hero!"

Oh so my camping trip was A-mazing (yes I know thatsnot how you spell it). The staff was nice, friendly, and always made sure I was safe before doing an activity. Here are some activities I did....1)The Power Pole: you climb this 25 ft or ever so slightly more feet of a pole (no worries there are things to step on on the way up), then you a stand on the very top, get ready to leap, and jump towards this big red ball and touch it. You are harnessed the hole time, and the staff has your back like the whole time.2) Sky coaster:people pull you by a rope 40 feet into the air, then you pull a cord once ready, and brace for a yank as you free fall and swing back and forth...up until you come to a stop.3)One of my fav. activites was the climbing wall. It is pretty much self explanatory you know a wall with fake rock holds at various levels:easy, medium, and hard inside of a gym. It was my first time on one and it was a blast!
Alright here is the much awaited post. Before I start though, keep in mind what you might want me to post about. No I am not facing an inspiration block, I just want to make this blog more enjoyable for you readers!



Here are two beauties who I think have unique looks. First is Johnny Depp's better half: Vanessa Paradis. This lady is french, she acts, and I just love love love her last name! The girl below her is you guessed it a model!Who might you ask? Well her name is Darla, not sure what to think about the name. Should I go awwwwwwwwwwwwww or should I say her name in a western accent? hehehehe.


Here are a couple of shots from the Oscar de la Renta collection. These pics really spoke to me...they're absolutely divine! With the expert tailoring and whatnot this season, the average woman is being presented as a powerful figure. The clothes effervesce total chic and sleekness.

Oh and speaking of powerful..here's a little something I prepared for you all....



PEP TALK
You need to look at yourself. Take up a challenge of your own for a change. Get out of your comfort zone. Look at Betty, she was not intimidated by the people at Mode magazine. Or Nacho...he risked a lot by being a monk and trying to purdue his luchador dream. Even the mystery men (and girl) who made what seemed ordinary gifts into tools to fight evil!!! Now let's change the focus, and get back to you. Want to where a super savvy outfit that shows off your personal style...get to it. Meaning to talk to that guy/girl?Well...get to it. Yes yes I know easier said than done, but someone has to say something! I speak on behalf of myself as well, a little more confidence goes a longggggggggg way. And, for some of you you have just started the new school year, for others the school year has yet to begin. My point?Its time for a little change.
"Where have all the good men goneAnd where are all the gods?
Where’s the street-wise HerculesTo fight the rising odds?
Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and I turn and I dream of what I needI need a hero
I’m holding on for a hero ‘til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strongAnd he’s gotta be fastAnd he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a heroI’m holding on for a hero ‘til the morning light"
part of the "I need a Hero song" by Bonnie Taylor.
MY RESPONSE:PSHAW!BE YOUR OWN HERO!Oh and for some reason the movie "Shrek 2" comes to mind...

Oh My gosh! Model Darla is so striking! She looks so out of this world in the most beautiful way possible!! I think i actually want to look like her...plastic surgery here i come!!

And i love the first Oscar de La Renta dress, thats something i would defintely wear if i was a millionare (oh i'm a poet)! While the second is so regal and has beautiful detailing.

Romeika said...

I don't like Vanessa Paradis, she married my dreamman *LOL* But oh well, i have seen this picture somewhere (don't remember where right now!) and she looks great, i love the hat. I think Johnny Depp shot this picture himself.

re:"The hours" is a GREAT film.

Seraphine said...

I love this week how you talk about empowerment and confidence. You start with your camping trip (which sounds awesome!) and end with a positive note for change. Good. Great!
