R.I.P Cory Monteith


Cory Monteith 1  Cory Allan Michael Monteith was born in Calgary, Alberta on May 11th, 1982, to Ann McGregor and Joe Monteith, an interior decorator and a military man. Cory had an older brother called Shaun. His parents got divorced when he was only 7 years old, leaving him and his brother in the hands of their mother. He saw very little of his father after the divorce because of military service. At the young age of only 13 years old, he began to use alcohol and marijuana and mitching from school.

After attending 16 schools, including programs for troubled teens, he dropped out at only 16.. His drug dependency increased he turned to crime; stealing money from friends and family to buy alcohol and drugs. When he was 19 his mother and friends stepped in and basically said “ No More Cory!”. After this he eventually went on to get his high school diploma in 2011 from an alternative school which he attended in his youth in Victoria, British Columbia.

Before breaking into show business, Cory worked loads of different jobs; Wal-Mart people greeter, taxi driver, school bus driver and even a roofer.  

Now we may have seen Cory in many movies here and there, but he is most famous for his big role in Glee as Star-quarterback (and dreamy!!) Finn Hudson!!

In 2009, he blew the producers of Glee away with his drumming, singing and even dancing!! They said that they liked the fact that he was “naive, but not stupid, sweetness.”


Finn is the star quarterback of his high school football team, and risks alienation from his friends by joining the school’s glee club. He is a popular jock at the top of the school’s social hierarchy, but when forced to join the glee club, he finds he loves it. His storylines have seen him struggle with his decision to stay in the club, which is at the bottom of the social ladder, while he maintains his popular reputation and the respect of the other jocks. The character must deal with his attraction to both, his girlfriend, the head cheerleader Quinn Fabray and glee club star singer Rachel Berry, and his storylines increasingly focus on his relationship with them both.

Cory Monteith  Cory as Finn won the 2011 Teen Choice Award for Choice TV: Actor comedy.

Finn appeared in all episodes of seasons one through three, and appeared on fifteen episodes of season four.

The episode “Sweet Dreams” was Monteiths final appearance on Glee before he died. Monteith’s last recorded song on the show is “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)”, a duet with Mark Salling (Puck). The last performance in which he was featured was Rachel’s audition version of “Don’t Stop Believin” with the original New Directions members in the episode “Sweet Dreams,” which was originally sung in the series “Pilot” episode.

On July 13, 2013, at the age of 31, Monteith was found dead in his room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in Vancouver. He had been scheduled to check out that day following a seven-night stay, but when he failed to do so, hotel staff entered his room and discovered his body around noon. The Vancouver Police Department stated that the cause of death was not immediately apparent, but ruled out foul play.

On July 20, 2013, Ryan Murphy said in various media outlets that Cory will have a tribute in the third episode of season five and it will also deal with the death of Monteith’s character, Finn.

Teenage Dreams Become Real Life

The youngest girl ever to performing at London fashion week in the music industry!!!

As I was  reading through a teen magazine recently called ‘Shout’, I came across a truly fascinating article. A 16 year old girl, Misty Miller, is taking part in London fashion week  – but in the music industry!

Misty has been in the music industry since she was 10 when she used to play alongside  her two brothers. She tried to play the guitar and piano, but it wasn’t until she started playing the ukulele that she really got into song writing and playing solo. The ukulele is a small, four-stringed guitar that has a really nice Hawaiian sound.

She played her first proper gig when she was 14. A jazz musician heard her music and asked her if she wanted to support for 2 nights in Paris.

When she got back from Paris, she set off for London. She had a gig on in the Burberry store in convent garden

A while after that she sang at London fashion week! She was wearing a gorgeous Burberry dress and she got to keep it! She signed up with PRS For Music about a year ago.

In August, PRS For Music held a Class Of 2011 event to recognise and celebrate the UK’s most promising and highest earning young performers, which included Misty!

Misty’s advice:

My advice to anyone who wants to have a career in music would be to just keep doing it and enjoy it. Keep playing live a lot as it helps you to meet people who can help you. Also getting your music out there is important, so getting in YouTube and Facebook is vital if you want to make it.”


A hip guide to modern wicca:

Some say that you have to be born a witch-a witch cannot be made. I disagree. In our society, where the majority of alternative spirituality is hushed or treated with derision and scepticism, it can be hard to hear your inner calling.

Spells: spell boundaries

Casting circles and making your own sacred space

Before you can do any magickal work- ritual, healing, spellcasting- you need first to create sacred. To do this witches cast a circle  between the worlds in which to formally worship our deities and conduct magickal workings. Circle casting is one of the most fundamental rituals a new witch can learn as a sacred circle plays a major role in containing and intensifying magickal energies, as well as keeping out potential unwanted nasties like hostile psychic entities and negative energies(unless you invite them of course!).

Fabulous frocks


There is something very special about a dress. No other piece of clothing 

The Party Dress!

 is   as beautiful as dress or as elegant as dress not even a skirt. As you probably already know there are many different types of dresses. There are three main ones:

  • The party dress 
  • The little black dress



And, of course



  • The wedding dress


The LBD!

   It has been more than 80 years since coco Chanel invented the little black dress, but every woman still has one in her wardrobe. Its decades since women discovered trousers and separates, but every woman dreams of wearing a glorious, glamorous gown at least once, whether it’s on a Hollywood red carpet, or on her wedding day.




As I was reading through the book fabulous frocks, I came across a really nice saying:


     “ the dress must not hang on the body but follow its lines. It must  accompany  its wearer and when a woman  smiles the dress  must  smile with her”

This saying was said by Vionnet, a very famous dress designer.


The ultimate must surely be … The Wedding Dress!
