life is really simple but we insist to make it complicated

Yesterday at school i was reminded about the dangers of smoking. Same old, same reasons. Smoking gives you yellow teeth, makes you stink, its addictive and it shortens your life. These effects are terribly unhealthy and dangerous. In fact one of my closest friend's dad died last year due to smoking and there so more tragic deaths related to smoking.And it wasnt till this year I was revealed that several of my friends take up smoking. But why is the world still lighting cigarettes? I have to admit they have this cool edge and they sure do make inspiring fashion-wise pictures

smoking is bad and we wanted to end this post on a happier note but when it comes to smoking its sad.
Do any of yous also related to the smoking issue?

  2. thank you. what a polital/cool and personal post!

    i love itttttt

    it's so sad that people know all the risks, yet continue to snoke. today we were learning at school about this guy who sued a cigarette company because he got lung cancer. i'm like "but surely he knew smoking can cause lung cancer?!? IDIOT!"

    great images to prove your point too.

    love you leo & casper!

  4. oh how i hate smoking! i dont understand why people smoke, they already know its bad for them, and its not even cool.
    but then again, its really hard to change a person's mind once theyre addicted. its sad at times. my friend has been trying to change her parents mind ever since she was little, she even tried to threaten them that shell take up smoking. nothing hasnt worked yet....but shes still persisting, HURRAY!

  10. first of all, thanks so much for following my blog! you guys are way sweet for doing so! <3

    on a more serious note, smoking is bad! i wonder why, with all the knowledge we have about the negative effects of smoking, people still choose to light up? is fashion partly to blame, with advertisers glamourising the idea of smoking by making models holding cigarettes look sexy, mysterious etc, which may then encourage people to smoke??

  11. ugh smoking is bad, the end!
    i can see how it has a cool effect on pictures but if anything, smoking should be confined to fashion shoots

    good post!

  13. I agree, loads of my friends "social smoke" which I think makes them sound like a douche :/ I mean, it's ok for fashion photography, as are ten-inch-platforms, but, like the platforms it should be for effect only.
    thanks for the comment
    I love your blog :) xxx

  14. Yeah, smoking sucks. A lot of the time on photo shoots and on movie sets we use fake herbal cigarettes, though, so you get the benefit of looking cool without screwing up your lungs, teeth and skin!

    Also, it's not that bad to walk around in Manhattan at night! I wouldn't do it in the 'hood, though... not even daytime. XOXOXO

  16. YES. THANK - YOU. I think that smoking is one of the most disgusting habits. And it's partially the media's fault for glamourizing. I'm sorry about your friend's dad. That's so sad.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  18. I've never understood why anybody would take up smoking until I started seeing these amazing pictures of cigarettes in fashion photos. It does make it look so glamourous.
