Celebrity Look-A-Like

Have you ever been told you look like a celebrity? It’s a very peculiar thing isn’t it? To be told who you look similar to. In a way it’s the ultimate way of seeing how other people view you, in a totally superficial way of course. However, someone can look like a person but not at the same time. Like twins, who look the same, but one is more ecstatically beautiful and the other is not. For one I look like my dad, even I can see that, but I most certainly do not look like a 60 year old man (Right?!). There was this one time, in Magaluf (yees, tacky I know. I was young, don’t hold it against me), some random British lad told me I looked like a cross between Victoria Beckham and Jordan (???????). What is that? Was he hoping to get lucky with that line. Well lets just say, I would never.




However, my sister-in-law once told me that I kind of reminded her of Chloe Sevigny. This was the first, yet not the last time someone made this comment about me. I can see where they are coming from, we do have some similarities. I don’t know if we really look alike, but I do know I wouldn’t mind my wardrobe to looking like hers! She is one freakin cool chick!

I am an Animal!

I love me some animals, although I tend to be more scared than loving when I first meet one. Its never quite love at first sight between me and our furry friends. It takes me a while to get comfortable, but when that time comes I am all good..I guess you could call me timid, and even a bit shy. I have to feel my way, so see if I actually like this animal. Do we have anything in common? How is the cuddling? How far can it really go? Is it a caged animal, because I stear away from those. Wild, too dependent, too agressive, not agressive enough? There are lots of questions to be answered, but in the end nothing beats a nice pet! Or am I still talking about animals???

My favorite animal is the goat. Trustworthy, cute and quiet yet strong and independent! I want one..like now.
But remember, we must be kind to our friends!!

Old School Glamour.

I was watching an old movie with my dad, and it got me thinking. Women just aren’t classy in the same way they used be. Now, I know I am a bad example, a girl who has spent most of her life adoring sports, of course I’m not very glam. But even the celebrities and movie stars are not the way they used to be. Back in the day they looked effortlessly beautiful, and always so womanly. Everything was thought of, and there was never a strand of hair out of place. To me the definition of glamour is simple, only two words: Grace Kelly, the late princess of Monaco.

The lack of poise is probably due to the constant attention that they experience, making it impossible to portray the kind of glamour the stars used to exhibit. It may not be physically possible, because in the end of the day they are just like the rest of us. Just a bit more well off and maybe better looking. Maybe it’s a good thing, because I think girls everywhere would struggle to look like the stars of yesterday. However, just because their time has passed and time has changed, we can still appreciate their beauty and elegance.

Elisabeth Taylor

Marilyn Monroe
Grace Kelly

The closest thing today, in my opinion, is Kate Winslet.
