Okay, this post is slightly (very) more politically charged than any other I have ever written or will ever write. Which is also why I chose to put up pictures of me looking generally dissatisfied. Recently, I’ve been overwhelmed with information about the Brexit campaign and personally, I think it’s an incredibly stupid one at that. Why would you choose to leave the EU when doing so would probably – most definitely in my opinion- lead to another recession? (I quite like being able to travel freely through Europe too)

The Brexit campaign in my eyes is entirely based upon prejudice and racism which supporters of anti-immigration revel in. Furthermore, the UK would lose out on investment from abroad and in the long run, the power of its financial sector would diminish. Bye bye influence on the global economy!

I’ve been talking to friends, family and even strangers about the upcoming EU referendum and how incredibly important it is to vote to remain. Some of the people I have talked to were actually going to vote to leave but had no reasoning behind why they had decided to do so – which was frustrating for me. And that’s when I realised that quite a few people will ultimately vote for Brexit or not at all due to being unable to gather sufficient information or judging the situation superficially. This vote really does matter to every single person that lives in Britain as its outcome will directly affect us all.

Now, I don’t normally voice my opinion in politics or on anything at all really on social media platforms but this is too important to glaze over. So, I wrote a little poem to kind of sum it up, this is also the first time I’ll be sharing my poetry on ModainLondres 🙂

 

Leaving without cause for letting

Creeds drawn up over times unteeming.

Investment drying over periods of heavy rain

We can’t possibly choose not to remain

Deafening roars of self subjugation versus a country with flourishing life

Resurrection

Of commerce and communication,

Thoughts and contemplating over treaties of trade

And financial sector complaints.

I would lose friends and so would you

If and when

The UK chooses to refrain

From staying,

Streaming,

Conducting,

Teaming with the EU.

Staying in benefits us all

Leaving will cause our country to fall.

 

(And my best friend will have to relocate to Germany so vote to stay thanks)

 

These are my two cents and although, I don’t wish to influence or corner anyone into accommodating my stance, I do want to urge everyone that is able to vote to look up information on the pros and cons. Make up your own mind on the issue and please, please vote! I know a lot of the time, we (I) think that your vote doesn’t make a difference but I know that if all the people who did think that took a stand, then the results of any election or vote for dairy-free ice cream in cafeteria’s would reflect their efforts. Ripple effect and all.

But yeah mainly vote so my best friends – both of them, won’t have to move away ok thanks xxx

Sapatos de Seaside

Lisbon-Portugal

Seaside’s shoes have been a part of my wardrobes entourage for years now and why ever not? The brand thrives on high quality and innovative products that not only look great on your feet but make love to them too. I jest you not!

Seaside’s shoes are some of the MOST comfortable shoes I have ever had the pleasure to own! They are truly amazing, breaking in high heels (Sapatos de Salto) has never been so enjoyable.

Being a Portuguese brand, Seaside has done considerably well on the international scale and have been in business for over 25 years now. In my mind I envision the head design team to be a cozy bunch of avo’s (grandmothers) who note down every idea, detail, stitch and style to pass down to later generations so as to keep on the tradition. Oh, did I forget to mention that these avo’s are incredibly stylish and are always decked out in the edgiest apparel/accessories?

I remember my first Seaside shoe; It was the summer of 2007 in Lisbon and I was twelve and on the verge of a prepubescent breakdown not knowing if the guy I pledged to love even knew of my existence and what not. My mae (mother) decided to take me shopping to get my mood out of the perpetual funk it was in at that stage and after a few huffs I let her lead me out of the house and onto the street. I vividly recall hefty cow figurines being scattered around the streets of Lisbon that year, leftovers of the Cow Parade from the year before. There was even one in front of the Seaside store in Praça de Londres, Lisbon.

The first Seaside shoes I ever bought were these huge pink imitation trainer flatform’s (Flatform’s in 2007, I was ahead of my time I know, I know.) They were my first sort of heeled shoes and for that reason I adored them. I even went home and showed them off to my crush the next day! (He may have laughed okay)

They may have been slightly odd to adorn my twelve year old feet with but I loved them and they went on to be a member of my shoe clique for years. I still had them up to two years ago until I moved to London and left them behind in Kenya (Seaside’s shoes are amazingly durable!)
