My fashion blog, Preloved Fashion was hacked so I have closed it down and started another fresh one called Fabulous Fashion Forever. This is for the woman who has no intention of letting herself go once she leaves her twenties but who means to stay stylish all her life.
Below are a few of the women we should aspire to:
I haven't been in here for ages but I have started another blog about preloved fashion.
As a trained fashion designer, I want to pass on my knowledge to others out there who have a low clothing budget but a passionate desire to look fashionable and stylish. The majority of my own wardrobe comes from buying off second-hand sites on the web. When I am tired of them, I sell them on. This means that I can change my wardrobe often for minimal cost. I want to show how to put disparate pieces together and create a look that is unique.
I've included here a photo of one of the things I will be doing on the blog - putting outfits together.
Yes, I'm tooting my own horn. This book has been e-published for quite a while now and a website recently reviewed it without my knowing. My publisher sent me the link.
Miranda from Joyfully Reviewed had this to say:
"Suzanne Perazzini created a unique world in Crash into Darkness. Amber and Jaden have an immediate connection that neither is sure what to do about. It was almost like going to see an action movie. I felt as if I was right in the middle of the action. Just when you think you have it all figured out boom another surprise. The great thing about it to me was it didn’t feel like too much. I wasn’t sitting here thinking ‘yeah right, that’s not plausible’. Crash into Darkness has an amazing ending that I was not expecting, I so love when that happens. Crash into Darkness was an action-packed thrill ride that I found thoroughly enjoyable."
I just created a blog for my boss and realized that there are all sorts of new options with Blogspot now that certainly didn't exist when I started this blog. It was quite exciting trying all the different possibilities and then I settled on something appropriate to a writer while keeping it calm and serene.
Our New Zealand Romance Writers conference is only a few weeks away and I am really looking forward to it. We have great guests including Christopher Vogler, Laura Bradford, Alex Logan from Grand Central Publishing, Stephanie Laurens, Dianne Moggy from Harlequin and Jane Porter. We couldn't have a better line up and it will be a fabulous three days.
Shutter Island I saw this a few weeks ago and it still sticks with me but mainly because I was annoyed at the ending. I know others loved the ending and it certainly was a nuanced ending and you had to listen to every word to understand exactly what happened, but I didn't want that ending and that's that. Leonardo di Caprio was amazing as always in this dark and compelling story. It was definitely worth watching but pay attention to get the most out of the story.
Boy This is a New Zealand film written, directed and acted in by Taika Cohen, one of New Zealand's great talents. If you get a chance to see this, do so. It is funny, hilarious at times, and very poignant. It has wonderful acting and tells a simple story in a great setting. This is the story of a New Zealand Maori family but it could be a story happening in any part of the world. Law Abiding Citizen This is brutal so if you don't like too much blood and gore, then stay away. It's well acted and pulls you through at a fast enough pace but I was worried about how to reconcile the man the main character was to who he became. They throw in a kind of an explanation but it seemed a little gratuitous. Not a must see.
Remember Me If you want to see this movie, don't, I repeat DON'T go on the internet to see any reviews until afterwards. Just take my word for that or it will be spoilt. I get what the writer was trying to say but many haven't. They thought it was just a love story and it's not. It has a much wider message. The young actors did a good job with a sometimes cliched script. Worth seeing.
Mao's Last Dancer I loved this but then I am a dancer from way back. The dance scenes were amazing and the main actor, who is first and foremost a dancer, was superb. This is based on a true story and a real person who is still living, so that made it even more fascinating. If you love dance, true life stories and drama then see this.
