Ab-Fab or Ab-surd...?

Not so much a brand spanking new phenomenon... more a come back trend of the nineties resurfaced by fashion gods who are probably rekindling their love for Clueless...

Only this time it's not so in your face 6 pack abs from the likes of Gwen Stefani and Janet Jackson. It's a tasteful peek-a-boo of midriff between a high rise waist line and a high rise top.

Being shifted into the limelight by toned tummies such as Selena Gomez and Lana Del Rey. Plus the not so chic Tulisa (sorry babez) and the less thought out Miley Cyrus (she's so toned she could get away with walking around naked. Put it like that and we're suddenly not so adversed to her constant show of stomach).

(L-R: Selena Gomez, Lana Del Rey, Tulisa, Miley Cyrus)

(L-R: Acne, Anthony Vaccarello, Aquilano Rimondi, Bill Blass)

(L-R: Dolce & Gabanna, Helmut Lang, Prada, Preen)

(L-R: Emilio Pucci, Dolce & Gabanna, Band of Outsiders)

Is this a trend you will be trying? Whether you will or won't it's good summer body motivation all the same!

Catch up...

I forgot my blogging password.

What have I become? Shall we go with the ripe old excuse of quantity over quality...and if I don't make you laugh at least once in this post you are entitled to a full refund.

Speaking of laughs I wanted to blog this video clip as it makes me think 'well, it could be worse!'. I'm currently sitting in the dark because (I'm assuming) my light bulb died - correct my terminology if I'm wrong there. I didn't notice for the first 2 minutes because I'm so engrossed with the procrastination of a) tidying my room b) changing my sheets and c) packing for my holiday!

I will be flying solo (solo solo) for the first time ever on Wednesday! So I will be loading up my iPhone with tonnes of Sex and the City. I've been watching it all day and can clarify that my favourite season is a close call between 3 and 4. 3 for the fashion (it's all filmed on sunny days) and 4 because Aiden looks hotter with short hair.

What's yours? And any movie/music recommendations for travelling are warmly welcomed!
