So I'm currently reading (well, casually flicking) through Christian Dior's iconic 'The Little Dictonary Of Fashion', and my favourite reference has to be to Zest on the final page. According to Dior,
'anything you do, work or pleasure, you have to do it with zest.'
How right he was! I am the most laid back person in the world-to the point of irration sometimes-but if you want to succeed or do anything well its impossible without putting that extra effort in: that 'zest' if you will.
In every aspect of life those with 'zest' are achieving more-celebrities, scholars, bloggers, those in retail or customer service-the ones doing the best are striving to be original and the best they can be. As cheesey as it sounds, I find this v.motivating...my future is going to be 'zesty' if it kills me!*

Can you guys think of any other people recently who just seem to ooze 'it' (even in a 'couldn't-care-less' way like Miss Delevingne)?
*NOTE: I am fully aware that I sound like I'm nattering on about becoming a lemon throughout this post, apologies for any confusion...
