Primark is a zoo and Plastic Fantastic Shoes

If you like your fashion so much so that you are buying it so often and throwing it away after a few wears out then you probably find Primark a great place. Its a zoo in their Oxford Street store with all ages sexes though mostly younger females doing the rounds. You see I think its about the feeling of buying something and that new smell. It goes so fast you need to get back in there tuesday evening to find the next fix.

You can buy plastic shoes that fit the bill of value and fashion. I'm not fully against such low priced items provided they are not sweat shop fabricated but this is another story and a complex one. Lets just see the side of fun for the moment and the colours of spring into summer. You see these shoes could be fabricated by moulding them and there isn't a stitch in sight.

Its the new UK punk style !

Me Before You Book Review– Jojo Moyes

I chose this book to read thinking it was just a usual ‘chick lit’ book. I’ve been embroiled in the urban fantasy genre for a couple of years now and just fancied a good old fashioned love story to get lost in, but what I actually got was quite the opposite, an anti- love story if you will.

We first meet 26 year old Lou Clark as her boss decides to close down the café where she’s worked for the past 6 years, leaving her jobless and skill less. We follow her to interviews with Syed her jobcentre advisor who packs her off to menial jobs in a chicken factory and fast food restaurants, which she hates. Syed becomes so frustrated with her, that he suggests jobs in lap dancing and pole dancing clubs! Finally he sends her on an interview for a carer’s role, for which she makes sure there would be no ‘arse wiping’ involved. Much to her surprise she’s offered the job of carer to ex city high – flyer Will Traynor, who through a cruel twist of fate had been mown down by a motorcyclist whilst crossing a London street two years previously. Now quadriplegic with very limited movement in one arm, Will is suicidal and cantankerous 


What follows is a painful and poignant story of Lou’s desperate attempt at making Will’s life worth living again. Whilst she may fail at that, what she actually succeeds in accomplishing is learning to love herself and make her own life worth living again.
This is so far my book of the year, and I will definitely be reading further titles by Jojo Moyes. She’s an extremely talented writer who manages to write very rounded, if not always likeable ‘real’ characters; a rare oddity in today’s book market. A brave story that is well researched, I was beside myself with grief at the end of the book, and it’s been a long times since a book has provoked such an emotional journey in me.

Katy Perry Moves On from Russell Brand

 
Katy Perry is getting on with her life in the wake of her separation from actor Russell Brand. The 27-year-old singer hosted the GiveLove charity benefit at the opening of 1 Oak nightclub in Las Vegas. Perry tweeted about the charity, which benefits Haiti, writing, “Happy to be supporting my best friend @MDMOLINARI & his j.molinari jewelry w/all my other besties in #VEGAS for a great cause @GiveLoveOrg.” It is her first official U.S. appearance since 36-year-old Brand filed divorce papers and ended their marriage.

The former couple was married for 14 months, and in that period showed themselves to be in a committed and stable relationship.

Perry is best known for her music with hit songs such as, “I Kissed A Girl” and “California Girls.” Brand is known for being a comedian, singer, actor, author, and for his history of sex and substance abuse. Brand is now sober and has starred in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek.
