Dependant Personality Style

Many people exhibit dependant traits but those with Dependant personality disorder have and excessive need to be taken care of which result in submissive and clinging behaviours, regardless of the consequences. They are overly dependent on others to make their decisions for them and are generally unable to make decisions for themselves without advice and reassurance from others (Kaplan et al., 1994).

This fashion style stems from the idea that a person with Dependant Personality Style is a fashion follower. She will know exactly what’s in style this season and what’s not.  She will be reliant on the styles of her friends and on others, will often dress to fit in and follows trends religiously.

Dress to fit in

When it comes to style we all are dependant from time to time. Adding your own flare to trends makes that style your own.

My frustration with so-called fashion bloggers.

I understand the fact that everyone, eventually, wants to make some money out of their blogs. But that doesn’t mean that you should only try and link things from the affiliate programs that you are part of.

I recently saw a gorgeous dress on Pinterest. I clicked on the link and it took me to the Asos website. Stupidly, I bought the dress without properly checking that it is the same dress because I was sooooo excited to get this lovely dress. It was only when I opened the package that I realized that this was not the dress I wanted. It was however, the dress I ordered.

The Dress I saw…


The dress I got…


I realize that it’s my own fault for not looking at the details, but at that moment it looked like the same dress. I am just annoyed that someone would link something totally unrelated and say that this is what they bought from a particular shop. This is just one example. The other day I also saw a blogger wearing a lovely jersey but none of the products that she linked was the jersey she was wearing.

So please don’t just link stuff to get sales. There is a reason we follow these bloggers and it’s because they have great style and typically, if we like something that they are wearing we would like to buy the SAME thing. Not something similar….

Here is what the dress looks like.






The Accountant – Review

A movie about loyalty and Asperger’s.


Christian Wolff ( Ben Afleck) is an accountant for some of the most dangerous people in the world. As a Ray King(J.K Simmons), the head of the department of treasury Crime enforcement division, is preparing to retire he is adamant to find out who ‘The Accountant’ is. Christian takes on a legitimate client, who’s accounting clerk found an in discrepancy in the books amounting up to millions of dollars. As Christian uncovers the truth, the bodies start to drop.


The movie is deeper than the plot suggest. My one friend commented that the accountant is the nerdy Batman, which was pretty funny at the moment. The movie however is about a man with Asperger’s, an Autism spectrum disorder. He was raised in an Army family. His mother left him and his brother with their father when she couldn’t deal with the pressures of having a son with Autism. His father was more of a ‘no pain no gain’ kind of guy and believed that instead of creating a sensory environment for his son where he won’t have to deal with sensory overload, he believes that ‘if bright lights and loud noises bothers his son, then those are the things that needs to be increased because the world is a noisy place’. He sends his sons to various martial arts institutes to train with masters from different art forms. Therefore making him a ‘killing machines’.


The movies touches on some aspects of Asperger’s in a way I haven’t really seen in a movie, it also gives the world some information on what a person with Asperger’s goes through socially.

The movie was interesting and there were sufficient action, it also had a good story line for an action movie.

If you are interested in Asperger’s and don’t want to read psychology books about it you can always read HOUSE RULES by Jodi Picoult. She gives us a deep look into the lives of Aspies, their families and the communities they live in.

Black and White Wedding/Ball ideas


Black flowers aren’t the easiest thing to find. There are basically 3 types of black flowers you could use and their more purple than black. Arum lilies are in season mostly in December, Dark purple tulips are only in season during spring but you could possible import them at a very high price. The third option is black roses or black morning glories, but it’s more like a dark red than a black

Bridal bouquet.

Instead of using black flowers you always have the option of adding black ribbons, organza and feathers.
