I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

This was on my Christmas wish list. I NEED (needed) protection for my new iPhone 5s. I went high end because other cases/sleeves were either in the midrange $40-$60 or $100++ … and it was Etsy that sealed the deal. Prices were way too high for what you were getting, and who you would be getting it from. Sketchy-Etsy I say! Nothing replaces a trusted reputation from a 125 year old company. Ordering online from the UK is very civilized as well, never a worry. I’m still in awe, I ordered on the 18th (really, the 19th considering the time difference), and here it is at my front door on the 23rd before 6:00! Now, while I’m VAT exempt, and shipping was free (another thing; I scored free shipping with 2 days remaining on the deal, and depending on how you decipher their fees, if I’m considered USA, it’s £20, if I’m Rest of the World, it’s £30 … HUGE savings, woohoo!), but because it was delivered courier and not Canada Post, I’m not duty, tax free – was nipped for $34! Bloody buggers! It’s a thing of beauty, made in Italy … so mother ‘fn chuffed!

and tomorrow we might wake on the other side

~don’t look at me~

every day is so wonderful
then suddenly it’s hard to breathe
now and then I get insecure
from all the pain I’m so ashamed

I am beautiful no matter what they say
words can’t bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
yes words can’t bring me down oh no
so don’t you bring me down today

you are beautiful no matter what they say
words can’t bring you down oh no
you are beautiful in every single way
yes words can’t bring you down oh no
so don’t you bring me down today

’cause we are beautiful no matter what they say
yes words won’t bring us down oh no
we are beautiful in every single way
yes words can’t bring us down oh no
so don’t you bring me down today
