Marion Cotillard

Marion Cotillard is a French actress. She is possibly the most gorgeous person in the world, she always has a friendly sparkle in her eye, she's confident, feminine, talented, proud, and her style is just a whole nother story. Her outfit never seems to dissapoint. Whether it's a blush shirt-dress, paired with navy Jean Paul Gaultier 6 inch platforms or a simple LBD accompanied by a pair of gold buckled Miu Miu ankle boots - she always looks radiant and on top form.

I think I can confidently say after watching "La vie en Rose" she is by far the most talented actress I have ever seen, really you have to see it. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress, BAFTA Award for Best Actress, César for Best Actress and the Golden Globe for Best Actress in Musical for her portrayal of French singer Édith Piaf in La Vie en Rose. She made film history by becoming the first person to win an Academy Award for a French language performance.

Definately one of my role models for so many reasons! Friday tomorrow.. yay.

On Saturday (22 January 2011) it was 2 of my friends 18th Birthday jol. They hired a party bus to take about 30 of their good friends around Cape Town and then to drop them in Claremont at about 12 to continue the night. Unfortunately I couldn't be there as I had a school fundraiser, and was pretty bleak that I was going to miss prtying some of my closest guy friends. They are the sickest group of guys ever! The next morning I found out that 3 of my closest guy friends along with a few other people were in a serious accident whilest on the back of an open bakkie (the bakkie flipping over). I won't go into the details but they all were pretty badly injured, so much as to the point were my one friend is on life support in ICU..! Sunday night I hardly slept because I kept waking up with bad dreams about my friends.. Troy, Chad and Gere.

Just normal guys, having a jam and catching a lift home. I'm pretty sure none of them were expecting what came next. You don't appreciate life as much until someone thats close to you is in a situation like that and you are faced with that question. "Is it worth it?" Speeding, drinking, driving, driving without a licence.. ?? Everyone wants to have fun, be a bit of a rebel, some harmless fun, BUT when do you draw the line? There's always the same line.. "It won't happen to me." But it could, and it happened to 3 of my really good friends. I thank God that they all survived the crash and pray that they all make a good recovery. I love you guys and will try visit soon. Keep your heads held high, I'm here for you. x

These are a few pictures of us from a while ago at Assembly.

My Friday

Decided to have a relaxed and chilled out Friday night/afternoon. So far, this is the first weekend since school has started. I did a clay face mask earlier on and then hopped into the shower and used my new body shop products.. they smell amazing! After a nice, long, hot shower I dragged my mom to the car and made a pit stop at Sushi Zone.. was craving prawn california rolls. So good. Sushi is such a beautiful food :) And now I am currently watching series' and eating popcorn and drinking tea. Perfect.

Weekend plans..
Wake up (9ish), force myself to go for a run.. (maybe just do some star jumps in my room), drink coffee and eat breakfast. Go to beach/ go for a surf with Courts.. lunch in Camps Bay perhaps (nandos.. mmm)
Get ready and go to Phil (6ish) Prematch, chill out.. :)
Mercury Live for School fundraiser (yes, schools getting in there..clubbing?) haha.
Pop into Fez and then see how it goes.. Sounds pretty decent I rate.

Surf and then see. ;)

Happy Friday! Quote:

Back to School

Yesss, today was the first school day of 2011 for me. We had 20 minute lessons and ended at 12, thank goodness because after over a months holiday my concentration span is zero. Have some really sick teachers and some totally wack ones that I want to throw the board duster at but anyways lifes a bitch :)

Just when I thought my day was very mediocre, I came across this picture of such beauty and perfection my some what frown turned into a big smile :) Check out these Asos Spring Collection platformed heels. Woah. And to top it off I just got a massage.. back, neck and arms!

I have decided 2011 is going to be a year of ambition and acheivment - no backing down and no excuses. You get one life and everyday is going to be absolutely gorgeous! (School or no School).

Mowgli out - and about. X
