Susan Boyle Captured Her Dream, Even Tho She Lost The Britains Got Talent

We all fell in love with this lovely lady from Scotland just a month ago when she over came all the judgement from the audience & the judges and showed us a big lesson that no one should ever judge a book by its cover!

With her angelic voice, we've heard more than just beautiful voices of hers, we hear hope and dreams do comes true if you believe in it and work hard for it! I've always believed "Luck" is when opportunity meets preparations, that's what exactly Susan Boyle has done! She had this dream to become an professional singer but due to all the obstacles life has thrown at her, she still believes in her dream and grabbed that chance to shine in the Britain's Got Talent and the whole world fell in love with her!

Even tho she has lost the competition & won the 2nd place to the 16 members hip pop dance group "diversity", to me and many others all over the world, Susan Boyle.... you are the winner! Thank you for inspiring us to keep believing in our dreams and hope in this worldwide bad economic downturn! We're sure this won't be the last time we'll be hearing from Susan, sources said with her record contracts and TV & print commercials, she is gonna be making more than 500 Millions British Pounds! ( way more than only 10 thousand pounds if you win the 1st place on Britain's Got Talent! Ha! )

With all being said, here is Susan Boyle's fabulous final performance this Saturday at Britain's Got Talent! You go gurl Susan!

Here are the Lyrics

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high, And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving.

Then I was young and unafraid
When dreams were made and used, And wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, No wine untasted.
But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hopes apart
As they turn your dreams to shame.

And still I dream he'll come to me
And we will live our lives together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms We cannot weather...

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seems
Now life has killed The dream I dreamed.

The Art Of Illumination & The Mystical World Of Douglas Little For D.L. & Co.

I'm in awe of the creativity that lies within one Mr. Douglas Little. He's probably best known for his signature line of luxury candles under the brand D.L. & Co., but dig a little deeper and you'll find this is a man of many talents. His exquisite imagination reaches the deepest (and sometimes darkest) places, but he delivers it all with such haunting beauty.

Douglas Little the founder of DL & Company was born with a desire to bring objects opulence and beauty to those who yearn for the uncommon and exquisite. Every item designed is intended to unfold like a love letter, each detail revealing a procession of small delights. Like the purveyors of curious goods in previous ages, every item is intended to stir and enthrall each and every one of the senses.

From the sleek feel of the carefully selected silk ribbons to the intoxicating atmospheres of the handmade fragrances. Douglas Little’s love of rare botanica, arcane curiosities and long forgotten sensations compel me to offer these modern heirlooms. Alchemy is the art of transformation; like those Alchemists before me, I aspire to turn leaden monotony into golden bliss. Through the intertwined poetry of the senses, DL & Co intends to transform the mundane into the magnificent.

Mr Douglas Little is a sybarite of the senses who has created award winning images and ideas for the finest names in beauty. His appetite for rarefied pleasures has compelled him to bring DL & Company into being, so that he might share with others his passion for the hidden treasures of the world. DL & CO exists for the sole purpose of bringing a more vibrant way of living into being, a refuge for those weary of the prosaic, second rate offerings that surround us all.

Within the dim, opulent parlors of D.L. & CO, detail, craft and imagination are all greeted with a tender, reverent embrace and are cordially introduced to their lusty suitors, obscure botanica, Victorian surrealism and ancient charm. The fruits of their languorous unions are all found here. We humbly invite you to lose yourselves in their subtle yet vertiginous splendor.

D.L. & Co. pays great attention on details on Packaging:

The Box

Stitched in Burmese Silk, these carefully crafted containers recall the boxes that held cufflinks and collars in the glory days gone by. Your candle or diffuser are enclosed in a black satin ribbon imported from France, chosen for its exquisite sheen and weight.

The Tissue

The meticulous interior of each box ensures your candle or diffuser a long life, preserving fragrance as its flame slumbers, nestled in a cool embrace of hand-pleated tissue imported from Switzerland, exclusively dyed for D.L. & Co.

The Vessel

Mr. D.L. love & appreciation for finely crafted glassware served as the inspiration for this distinctive piece. Evoking the sublime vessels that flourished at the turn of the century until the middle of the 20th centry, it recalls the Art Deco period's penchant for organic yet stylized contours. The true brilliance of this floral design lies not only in its visual elegance, but also in that the form itself actually amplifies the fragrance while the candle is alight. When awakened, the candle's fragrance reverberates into the air with a surprising liveliness. The bowl is created from fine grade australian sand, selected for its clarity, weight and ability to display an intense hue. The bottom of each vessel bears the artist's initials, and every bowl is hand-tinted, hence making each one unique.

The Wax

D.L. & Co. candles are comprised of a patented blend of high-grade european waxes, many of which are used for luxury body creams and lotions. One immediately feels the difference in the wax when one runs a finger along its milky surface. Moise but not greasy, it is virtually absorbed into the skin upon contact. This formul not only burns cleaner than any other candle, it also houses the delicately balance essential oils without altering their fragile character. The wax in these candles is specifically designed to have a low melting temperature, thereby yielding a greater liquified surface area by which to better release the fragrance held within.
I am opening up one box of the "Absinthe" Signature collection candle to show you the beautiful hand pleated lining and packaging , the attention of details Mr. Little has put into all of his products!

Absinthe scent is truly decadent, makes me think of Victorian era opulence.

Their attention to detail really made my day, the larger candles come with a little card about the candle fragrance as well.

The unveiling.. I love this candle, and after it's used up you can use it for other candles (votives) or as a candy dish (for the larger ones).

Susan Boyle's Fabulous 2nd Performance on May 24th 2009

Here it is, hot off the interwebs: the second song from Internet craze Susan Boyle on the UK TV show Britain’s Got Talent. Boyle chose to sing “Memory” (often misheard as Memories) from the musical Cats.

So long has passed since Boyle did the US TV circuit - from Oprah to Good Morning America and everything in between - that its possible audiences may tire of her.
Susan successfully got through to the finals after tonight’s semi-final performance, but as we learned with Adam Lambert on American Idol, huge internet buzz doesn’t always mean you’ll be the contest’s eventual winner.

Even tho I've notice from the very beginning the song, she kinda sang off a key or two but hey, if you know the whole world is watching you on the stage, I would probably pee on my pants than just sign off keys! haha

Here is the newest video from "Britain's Got Talent" Susan Boyle's fabulous 2nd performance!

Item of the day: Metro Chic Pet Carrier (Available at

Are you a Vogue reading kind a girl whom always want the latest fashion and on top of the trends? if yes, then you must reconized this fabulous pet carrier is inspired by a famous european designer handbag!!(of course we added tons of extra details so it's even more fabulous!)

The carrier is made in super soft like butter faux lather, so soft it looks and feels like the real thing! It has two big external pocket front and back for extra storage. The top of the bag can be fully zipped and with a fabulous brass lock to droop over it to adds that special designer look!

There are two big mesh windows on both sides for air flow and so your precious pooch can see what you are buying during your shopping spree! And inside bottom of the bag has this super soft but strong padding that will holds the bottom of the bag in shape! so when your doggie or kitty sits in the bag, the bottom won't sag or bend out of shape liek other company's poorly made pet carriers.

The bag measures:

21"L x 9"D x 14"H

Very roommy & compact design that will fit any doggie or kitty up to 20 LBS! my pug mei-mei weights 24 LBS and she fits comfortably in it!
