What comes after

What comes after  - Steve watkins

Do you you like the name Iris?
Have you ever milked a goat?
 Have you ever been abused into a state of shock?
Have you ever met a boy called Littlebird?
Ever heard of piloerection?

Intigued yet?
Well i really hope you are because if so this book is for you.
Its about a teenage girl named Iris who tragically is pulled away from her loved ones to live a farm life with a Aunt and Cousin. Sound plan? Defintely not. Its a heartfelt book that will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat not wanting the book to end. To say the least i was hooked reading it, teared up 3 times, felt like i was the characters so it drew me in and it only took me the day to read it.

I would recommend it to anyone. Even fans of typical twilights and true bloods ( which i am also a BIG fan of ). At first i thought i might not like it because it seemed like a 'real life' read - a book that i feel is to plain to be drawn into because it doesnt have blood suckers and sparkly characters, but i couldnt have been more wrong.

All the good ones are taken

Okay... so believe it or not a a gained the courage to give someone my number today.

I don't know if it was this Vanity fair reese witherspoon go getter personality rubbing off on me or what.
I was wearing a 1950s inspired outfit wih black 1950s peddle pushers, a pink boobtub with bow at the front, black chocker and my hair down secured with black sunglasses....
Anyway.... im at the local shops which the mystery guy always works at and we always share 'stolen glances' at eachother and i thought 'you know what...  i accept that challenge' sooo i jotted my name and digits on a receipt and gave it to him...
It went like this:
me : " hi, this will sound silly but take this. Im ____ "
him :"  ok.....*smile* ... _____"
me: " Bye *smile*"
him: *smile*

So yes... very simple, but it was very cute! OR so i thought....

I got a text about 3 hours later, here it is:

Hey! Its ____. thx for your number you seem really nice. However :S ive recently got a new gf and i didnt know how to tell ou without making the whole situation akward haha so if  date is what u wanted i am sorry but i have to decline for said reason. still say hi when you come through im usually friendly. nice to meet you ___ ."


Alwell i replied with a nice little text back.
I can stil perve at him i guess but i'm not embaressed, angry or anything else except proud that i was confident enough to do it ( since i was a digit virgin ... until now ;) ). I was lucky he was kind and respectful and easy on the eyes so i dont feel so jilted!

Just goes to show manners can still exist and that more girls should take a chance because it may be worth it... whether for a date or a learning lesson.

Men of another era

Now im serious

Because this is heartbreaking...
 they just dont make men how they used to...
but i can ALWAYS dream

The wig party


Periodic Movies ( preferably victorian period )!!

Marie Antoinette - Kirsten Dunst
Vanity Fair - Reese Witherspoon
The Duchess - Keira Knightly
Elizabeth - Cate Blanchett
The other boleyn girl - Scarlet & Natalie
Shakespear in love - Gweneth Paltrow
Queen Victoria - Emily Blunt

Hmm... yes yes... I lie! Its not a week obsession, its more of a obsession of a general form since i love periodic movies, its the courtship, drama, fashion, makeup, manners and men.
I was defintely born in the wrong era!
BUT never fret as you can always copy cat!
Pretty silks, ribbons, bows, lace and light pastel colours will always work whether in fashion or home decor. Curls and pretty tendrels in the hair will always be in style and can be pinned to look more 'classicly'. Night gowns and floral scented perfume will make you sleep like a 1900s goddess!

KEEP CALM and watch the movies!

Let them eat cake

"Let them eat cake"! - Marie Antoinette

Kirsten Dunst is the epidemy of Glamour in this modern adaption of Marie Antoinette's life.. or so it would seem. This movie has an element of drama, sadness, class and pastel colours.
The soundtrack is outhere with classic 80s hits revamped such as 'I want candy' to opera music. ITS A HIT!

Any female with a love of fashion, heels, sweet foods, high hair, makeup, pugs and feathers will ADORE this movie. 

 P.s I own the movie and the soundtrack <3

Stephanie Zinone


Yes, thats right. I am one of the 1/100000 people to absolutely, truly, heart and soul L.O.V.E love Grease 2... and more importantly the brilliant BLONDE Stephanie Zinone..
School student and petrol station clerk by day, by night a lean mean singing fashionable machine.

She's a fashionable greaser and leader of the Pink ladies, she has messy hair and rocks fierce red lipstick and an even fiercer attitude. She wears 'rock glam' imspired clothing and if seems like her favouite fashionable colours are red, black and purple.

Cry baby

Hes the king... King cry baby!
I remember watching this movie as a child, and it was my absolute favourite.
Johnny Depp playing badass sex god, Cry baby Walter.

Guitar playing, motocycle riding, chiseled jaw clenching, tear jerking greaser.

Have i got you attention yet? Surely the gif would? well its a scene from the film, so you better watch up. Some ppl may think its a B grade film but to everyone else its a cult classic film, featuring a porn star, a betty and a screen god.

Theres also AMAZING drape and square clothes themed 1950s, amazing makeup and even better characters! Anyone with a love of fashion, 50s and cult classic movies then you will love this.

Marlon Brando

"Whose the smile?" "Whats the smile?".... The smile is none other the smile himself...


Okay, so these days any person can start a blog...

Some people may like that, others might not for me i don't care.
My opinion if you care to know it is this...
I love love love independant blogs - i spend about 60% of my time hitting google with my latest love of movies, fashion or celebrities so when there are blogs dedicated to my interests i say...More the better.
To hell with the boring people.

 I know what you want me to do but I ain't gonna do it so forget it!

Drum roll for introductions please....
Bump ba da daaa....

My name is Auby, and a here abouts is a very brief but in its own way detailed account of the many loves of my life...

Silver screen movies, Rebel love Mr. Marlon brando himself, Victoria secret shows and million dollar bras, Models and Actresses, B grade movies, A grade movies ( in my own opinion ), fads and trends of the 80s, 90s, and all inbetween, cult classic movies that teenagers claim to have discovered.. like every generation does (i.e. plastic wedges, 50s stuff and footloose.. the kevin bacon ( good ) footloose that is, craig brewer im looking at you ).

Well thanks for skimming over this with you eyes, know lets get to the quality stuff

Much rebel love and victoria secret winks to you,

Auby xx
