Most of us have seen The Great Gatsby, the movie starting Tobey Maguire as the Midwest native Nick Carraway who arrives in New York in 1922 in hot pursuit of the American dream. Nick, a would-be writer, moves next-door to millionaire Jay Gatsby, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, and becomes drawn into the roaring twenties' captivating world.

The ship on the horizon.
Paris is undisputedly one of the most beautiful cities globally, the capital of France, and art and fashion, everything I love in one place. I love everything about it; I also love, thrift and second stores. I live for them: the things you find, brand names, beautiful pieces, and statement items. I am like Emily in Paris on a budget. I always try to look amazing but not break the budget, because I also like traveling to Paris once a year, so I need to be clever with my money, but still look good.

Abi would tell you that, Love can often be hard to express or put into words, but it is a precious beautiful thing. Maddie would say to you that sometimes it's even a battlefield you enter because you are fighting for; you're a knight in shining armor.
Fifty shades of purple………the dark side of Epilepsy.
I can hear you asking after reading the title asking Why purple. Well, purple is the color set aside for Purple day, which is celebrated on the 26th March, as a global initiative dedicated to raising epilepsy awareness. Seeing as we a fast-approaching 26th March I got excited to see this challenge about Uncommon knowledge, however I missed the boat. The competition closed before I could submit this. I have just, been to busy to be able to get my story in; but I thought I might just share anyway, despite missing the competition.
