Oh, the places we'll go...

It's that time of year when schoolwork is such a chore, everyone is burnt out, and teachers still keep piling on homework.

The other day, while doing homework together, we got a little sidetracked and ended up spending an hour talking about where we wanted to go. We thought we'd share our top places with you, just in case you wanted to take a break and day dream like we have been.

Ale wants to go to Tokyo.

And Alex wants to go to Morroco
Where do you want to go?

I Have Patrick!

One thought that comes to my mind whenever I see Patrick Demarchelier's name, is Emily Blunt and Ann Hathaway calling "I have Patrick!" in The Devil Wears Prada to Meryl Streep. Such a great movie. Honestly, I can recite every line, and I do in every day conversation.
Anyway I just found these photos and they got me excited because a)Patrick Demarchellier is a genius and b) I want summer, and brightly hued dresses on Agyness Deyn just get me in a summer mood
What gets you in the summer mood?

Tom Ford, The Greatest Man Ever? I think so.

So recently I've decided that Tom Ford is the greatest man ever. Why, you make ask. Well let me tell you. As if being an amazing menswear/glasses designer and film director wasn't enough, Tom Ford had to make himself even more incredible by announcing that he'd be launching a women's clothing line. Oh Tom, you never cease to make yourself seem even more irresistible than you already are. So, back to his other accomplishments...

Let's list the reasons of why Tom Ford is the greatest person ever:
1. His glasses are absolutely amazing. Whether they're for the sun or simply for seeing, the designs are always fantastic and completely different to those of any other designer's. The retro-vibe is great and the glasses are modern even though they are reminiscent of the 50s. And can I just point out how awesome the ensemble the model is wearing is?:

This picture brings me to my next point...
2. His ads are always the best. The collaborations between Terry Richardson and Tom Ford truly are fascinating. Good job Mr.Ford, picking the best photographer to photograph your clothes.

3. People who wear his suits/tuxedos never seize to look amazing in them.

4. He wrote and directed his first movie this year and it was phenomenal (nominated for an Oscar, nominated for 2 BAFTAs and won 1 of them). Not many people can do that.

5. Finally, he is definitely the sexiest man alive.

So, there you have it. Now you know exactly why Tom Ford is the greatest man ever (at least in my mind).
