This is the opening paragraph from Dance Of The Apprentices by my great uncle Edward Gaitens.
My Grandmother still has letters from H. G. Wells to my uncle in which he compares my uncles stories to the best in English literature. Playwright James Bridie also praised my uncles work. ‘Books in Scotland’ said the book was “Quite simply the first great social critique of Glasgow in fiction.” and Moria Burgess for the Scottish Literatures International Voice wrote that “Edward Gaitens is unquestionably one of the finest short story writers produced by Glasgow, or even perhaps by Scotland.”
My Great grandfather was also an extremely talented artist and it is clear where my creative streak comes from - both in writing and in art.
I am so very proud of my family history.
Here is my beautiful ZARA pearl embellished collar. Like previously mentioned this is completely sold out now, world wide from what I’ve been told and is incredibly sought after. I managed to get my hands on the last two in Oxford Circus and I am selling one :)
After receiving so many messages about this collar I have decided to share the ebay link with you all. It ends in 6 days :) Just click here.
I am selling lots of other things in the lead up to Christmas to free up some space in London. Some items I have used in photoshoots, others I have worn to very glamorous events, others are brand new!
Follow her if you see this and you don’t already, her blog is so wonderful :’)
I’ve just seen this!!! Thank you lovely (:
I come across so many posts on Tumblr where girls are saying they feel ugly, jealous or just want to be someone else. Its desperately tragic because all these girls are beautiful and yet they keep comparing themselves to others. Everyones different and thats whats so wonderful about the world; its full of variety. It doesn’t mean that someone is uglier or prettier then another person, it just means they are different.
Its also sad that when I say that I feel completely happy with my appearance its considered “vain” when in actual fact its what EVERY girl should be feeling. Its as though putting ourselves down has become habit, and thats a sad thing indeed.
