With all due respect to all possibly affected religions. This is my way of showing the beauty beneath the haram (forbidden) in the Islam culture. I am an all-out middle eastern lover as it is also my home-town. And this is how I want to show its beauty to the world.
Unfortunately I was only able to keep track of the designers of my last three Looklet creations. I have 9 more before these but I wasn't able to name the designers. My only intention was for personal pleasure...Sorry!
I discovered Looklet back in October of 2010 through an office mate of mine. I haven't realized than how much I was so into it even if it was the first thing I'd do once I had free time at work. Yes, only during free time. ;-)
Until after a few weeks, then months, that I've totally forgotten about it, it was just about last month that I was "craving" for it. I completely forgot the name of the website, and I even prayed that I'd find it. Yes, I've tried getting in touch my friend who introduced it to me, but we somehow surprisingly have this unidentified friendship issue.
So I just kept trying to search all over Google until I stumbled upon the H&M website where they have a similar section in their site for dressing up. And then in about a month or less, the dressing room part of the H&M website folded up.
Again, for my search for fashion/style sites that I miraculously found Looklet again! But unfortunately, the closed down the community. Although you can still use their dressing up section, you can no longer save it. Heck, you can't even log in anymore. I have been dressing up models again, and I have become more and more addicted to it. This is why I've been planning to save all my creation here apart from Facebook. About a couple of weeks ago, my first few creations are still existing whenever I search for my old Looklet username on Google, so I'm still good with that.. until today when I tried looking it up again. I can't seem to find them anymore! It effin' sucks!!! :(
I will be working on looking for my old creations again...I gots tto!
Today, some generally definitively crappy activities would be television, certain networking sites, movie stars, certain music, among others.
But for me, I like watching TV. But I do choose what to watch. I like movies, some reality shows, series, sit coms, but only if they inspire me. I do feel like I've fallen in love with certain celebrities as well, (who doesn't?) and that too, inspires me. I guess I pretty much have the talent for seeing the beauty out of a lot of things that I see, hear, and read. It's not always a waste of time, you know. It's just a matter of getting inspiration and life lessons out of all of them. Sometimes, I actually consider my "aha!" moments to be messages from God. Nope, it's not blasphemous, because I do get answers especially during my "times of sorrow". I have had amazing realization moments, answers to mind wrecking questions, and again, inspiration to find out what I was meant to do in this life. When I see new things that I find interesting, I slowly realize what my desires really are.
So if people say that some of your hobbies are crap, they're not always right. It's what your hobbies turn you into. If you have hobbies that make you a crappy person, then hell, ditch it! But hobbies that inspire you, make you a better person, more knowledgeable, creative...go for it! You have to remember, known people of today were once thought of as weird and maybe even crappy. But that's what made them successful. The fact that they're not like everyone else. That they've come up with things that not very many people have. And the best part of it is, they have reached their happiest levels of their lives by actually knowing what their hearts desire.
Know how to distinguish crappy from inspiring. Or even to turn crappy into inspiring. Not everyone will like you or even appreciate what you do. Please yourself first by pleasing God. God is the one that put all those desires into your heart, so it honors Him when you appreciate and use the desires/talents that He put in there. God's creation was and will never be crappy.
