“Okay your job is to keep the pandas in their pen.”
“And I get paid to do this.”
That sounds like a whole better deal than my job.
Near my workplace.
Being an actress during the Golden Age of Hollywood was not as glamorous or ideal as it seems when taking these women’s lives at face value. Sexual harassment, underpay, and overwork were the norm. Many started out in the chorus and worked their way to stardom. Some only reached that elusive fame after dozens of films, hundreds of failures. Many had to overcome the hardship and heartache of broken homes, war-torn countries, or extreme poverty to become the beautiful faces onscreen that millions came to adore and idolize.
Some survived the Hollywood game, while others were used, abused, and thrown out. Some led happy lives, others didn’t. But the legacy they left on the screen has had and will continue to have an impact on the masses long after they are no longer present among us. These women created new worlds through the medium of film - their movies have provided a much desired escape for generations upon generations.
They make us smile when all we want to do is cry, they give us new perspectives on life, they inspire us to dream bigger, try harder, make a difference.
I am sad to see so many great actresses relatively forgotten, but what makes me sick is the way that so many of them are remembered: Marilyn as a slut, Katharine a bitch, Joan a monster, Audrey just a pretty face—many of these women defined by a single attribute (true or false) or single moment (real or fabricated) of their lives. None of them was perfect, everyone knows that. None of them was perfect because all of them were human. It takes a lot to be a star, yet all of them handled stardom, with all of its ups and all of its downs, with far more grace than the average human being. There’s already so much hate in this world, and I may just be speaking for myself, but these ladies have done nothing except make my life a happier existence. I love them, and I think they should, at the very least, be given the respect they deserve. Because they do deserve it. And then some.
absolutely love this post
Ukraine’s Tunnel of Love (Тунель Кохання)
To see more photos and videos from Instagrammers who made the trek to the Tunnel of Love, be sure to visit the Тунель Кохання / Tunnel of Love location page.
Three times a day, a train chugs through Ukraine’s Tunnel of Love (Тунель Кохання) transporting wood to a nearby fiberboard factory. The train molds the surrounding trees into a natural tunnel with each pass through a three-mile forested stretch of rail. The tunnel, nicknamed the Tunnel of Love (Тунель Кохання) has become known as one of the most romantic places in Ukraine. Local legend promises couples who visit the tunnel one wish, provided their intentions are sincere.
Bitches love my sense of style, I read the same magazines. Being metro on the metro, that’s my shit.
Aiyo, his ginormous bag is on the reserved seat. Quick, where’s a rude Singaporean auntie to handbag him when you need one?
Hey guys, you’re probably thinking what the hell happened to Jasmine? She hasn’t been updating for quite awhile, is she dead?
Well, the deal is, I found a job. As a writer at a fashion & lifestyle magazine.
This weekend, I’m attending talks by Oliver James & AC Grayling at the Singapore Writers Festival 2013. I just met Oliver James, a leading UK psychologist this afternoon (2nd November 2013, Singapore time)!
I found his analysis of the human psyche, the Persona & his views on the importance of perceptions in the workplace insightful and fascinating.
He is apparently a secular Humanist, against Thatcherism & the consumerist “shop till’ you drop” society that we currently live in. Ironically, as part of the fashion industry, I guess I’m supposed to be perpetuating this image conscious dystopia that he dislikes. But I don’t see why socialism & fashion can’t co-exist!
We had a little chat and he signed my books on Office Politics & Affluenza.
RoseWholesale.com is a great online store that has the latest fashion for men and women. They offer a wide selection of apparel for all shapes and sizes. They’re a sub-company of Yigou International group in China offering unique style at warehouse prices.
I love their variety of clothing. They tap into the vintage trend similar to websites like Modcloth, but Rose Wholesale is much kinder to your wallet. They make sure you get great quality clothing for a low price. You shouldn’t have to file for bankruptcy to look good. They also have different styles. If you prefer a more gothic and punk look, they have separate pieces that can add to any outfit. There’s also plenty for the Lolita fans too.
One of the first things I noticed was there’s a wig section.
As a cosplayer, one of the biggest struggles is finding a great wig at a low price. A lot of the time if you pay less for a wig, the quality goes down. Some of the best wigs are easily $50-100, but if you’re like me, you live on a budget week to week. Rose Wholesale’s wigs are phenomenal. A majority of them are heat resistant so you can style them to your liking. They offer different styles from short to long. Each one has several shades to choose from. The only downside to their wigs section is there are currently no blonde or ginger wigs. I hope this will change in the future. Are you ready for the best part? All of their wigs are under $20.
Something that I love about this site is right on the front page. Every day, they have their Flash Deals. They are a handful of items that are on sale. The catch is they’re only on sale for 24 hours. I love this model. It’s similar to sites like TeeFury. You should make sure you check back every day to see the new deal.
In the woman’s apparel, there’s something for everyone. Let’s start with the dresses. I love maxi dresses.
They look great on every body type. The elastic midsection makes them comfortable. If you find a great dress that sits on your natural waistline, they can define your shape well. Rose Wholesale have everything from solid color designs to floral prints. They also have several types without the elastic waist. These are light and airy. They’re great for the beach and you can throw them over a swimsuit.
Rose Wholesale’s vintage dresses are adorable.
