Take a note from Cinderella…


Hello people,

Its been a while since my last post, but I’m back and as you can see I have revamped the blog and I hope you like it as much as I do. My first post back is an extract from an article by Margaret Atwood in the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar. I don’t want to say too much on it because its pretty self explanatory, but I just love how she uses a fairy tale to explain a life lesson a lot of women struggle to learn.

” The aim of Cinderella is to be desired, but she herself must not place herself at a disadvantage by being too desiring in return. To want something you don’t have is to be vulnerable, especially if that something is a love object: desire makes you too readily seducible, and ready seducible girls easily make fools of themselves, allowing others to jeer at them, or worse.” – Margaret Atwood
