I attended a Human Rights workshop and was enlightened by the United Nations Development Goals:
1 - End Poverty & Hunger
2 - Universal Education
3 - Gender Equality
4 - Child Health
5 - Maternal Health
6 - Global Partnership
The question, "what am I doing to help?" rang in my head continuously through the talk and all I could do was sit there, on my iPhone and browse endless online stores for a perfect pair of wedges to crown my 1st pair. I know I'm a self-confessed shoppaholic but I couldn't help but look at what I had become with disgust! A selfish life filled with self-woes and aesthetic longings...
Where was the depth? The passion? Seems Uni has turned into endless days of work and endless insomniac-driven nights of American-Teen drivle.

Went to Selfridges to shop for my friend **Toy's birthday dress and bumped in The Noisettes' Shingai Shoniwa! :o I was the only one who recognised her and after I stated who she was, some faux-stans clammed her for photo-ops
Remember that Centre Parcs advert? "We have no time to stand and stare"? Well, today...or tonight, I'm taking a time-out to do just that. STOP! Wait...before crossing to the land of adulthood and choices and selfish ambition.
Workshop embodies what my life has become...a blurry daily routine of work and shopping. No pleasure or satisfaction is truly derived...just shopping and spending, thoughtlessly. But as I promised to start sharing my buys (follow me on Twitter @Onyxsta to get more up-to-date purchases)...heres the newbies to my ever-growing wardrobe *sigh*
