Cross Fashion and the Arch Bishop of Canterbury.

Does fashion devalue the meaning of the cross?

Hello I'm Clo, Hi all!

So today, whilst browsing the Vogue website for the latest fashion updates for my daily dose of fashion news I came across this bad boy piece.


"Are we now living with a symbol emptied of power by time and fashion? Christianity with a powerless Cross is Christianity without a throne for Christ or an aspiration for Christians," he continued. "A Cross that has no weight is not worth carrying."


So fellow fashionistas - Thoughts ? Views? Opinions?

Now i'm an inner indie kinda gal. I like free flowing indie and indie grunge fashion. I see how the Arch Bishop of Canterbury is entitled to an opinion, afterall he is a figure head, however I can't help but wonder if this whole senario is debatable.

I came to the conclusion. It is.
Now, as this touches lightly upon religion, I don't want anyone to be offended or think i'm trying to dis the Arch's comments or get all up in his grill. I'm not, this is just my personal opinion.

Does it not promote Christianity to an ever disbelieving atheist society?

This one is controversial.

I've been very bad

First and foremost, my apologies. I have been a very bad, very naughty blogger.

It's now sat in Pret, Selfridges. That I find myself lacking motivation, spark and get up and go. 

I received bad news this morning, on my way into Birmingham. It doesn't effect me personally but it knocked me for 6 and shook me to my core.

Life really can change so very quickly, one quick devotion can change everything. 

So after hours of what seems to be aimless wondering. I find myself waiting. Waiting for the meeting I predict may not happen.

Oh, how so much has occurred. Since we last spoke.
Basically, as many of you know, I'm behind the online fashion retailer - I'm sorry what did you say!? Business and college, doing my make up course has taken off, blew up big time, simultaneously leaving me very busy, very go, go, go. Ironic that I've today been aimlessly wondering. 

I'm here there and everywhere, ridiculously busy.

I digress. 

Isn't it funny how we pass hundreds, perhaps thousands of people. Every single day- yet we have no idea what their lives are like, their problems, what they're going through. Their thoughts and emotions. 

Oh. I've lost concentration again and let my mind wonder. How the bright lights and decorations of Selfridges captivate the eye at this time of the year. 

Sometimes certain things make you happy.


Speak soon,

Toodle pip,

Clo :) 

50 Things I Learnt From My Ex

Hello I'm Clo!

Todays post is a little different, if it were a song it'd be chompy, stompy a little bit angry, passionate yet composed. It's a reflective post about the things i will take from my last relationship, It's aim was to be positive, however there are a fair few jibes in there. I hope you find this helpfull or funny! Either or!

 The song I've chosen to acompany this post ironically is "I Knew You Were Trouble" - Taylor Swift.


 Just over a month ago, my [Then] boyfriend and I parted. I was then to discover by reading something on someone elses phone that he'd slept with someone who at 20 has 4 children and has also slept with over 80 women (Go Figure) this happened just hours after I cried in his arms after discovering the news of my cousins sudden death at the age of 31. He denied it, we reconciled, I found out he lied and things got ugly.
