Weird and Wonderful News Wednesday! Chanel, Comets, Dresses and Dolphins

Good Afternoon lovely people! I'm making much more of an effort to keep to my series posts; infact I'm even planning on adding a new one which you must keep your eyes peeled for over the next few days! This week I have been gathering the news stories that have been capturing my attention. Have a gander!

And if you happen to be browsing for your special day, check out some beautiful ideas here!




Chanel Couture: The Trainers say it all...via The Guardian.com





AAAAAHHHHHHH! I've been watching bits and bobs from the new Chanel collection and I LOVE IT! Karl Lagerfeld is a bit of a babe anyway. (As is Cara Delevigne really) But wasn't everything just beautiful! Take some time today and catch yourselves up! 

"The Chanel trainers came in blush-pink tweed, silver metallic thread, or pale lemon mesh. In deference to the traditions of couture, the laces were transparent chiffon, but the soles - thick and spongey with the scrolled, supple contours made iconic by the original Air Max – placed them firmly in the tradition of sportswear and streetwear. At Chanel, where a flat shoe has traditionally meant a ballerina pump, and all the feminine delicacy that style implies, this was a major statement."

I can't wait until we start to get some images from Rosetta! It's travelled for over 31 months and was woken up on Monday morning! It's total mission will hopefully last for 10 years and will catch a ride with a comet, doing all sorts to learn about our universe. I'm finding it all very fascinating! 



 Space is AWESOME!

I can't even post a photo of this. It sickens me. I wonder if any of you watched the 2009 documentary 'The Cove?'....If not, spend a while educating yourselves. The over 250 dolphins are captured and slaughtered for no real gain. Some are sold to aquariums, zoos, theme parks. Others are trophy animals and more are used for their meat. Click on the link to learn a bit more and the other day I signed a few different protests, but I can't seem to find them now. I'll post the link to Twitter if I can find it!
