Meet the Blogger

When I look at the mirror, I see a stranger who never fails to surprise me. 
Everything about me is complicated ~ but I like things simple and straight to the point. 
I don’t haggle and I don’t settle for less. 
I simply take what I want coz I know what I want. 
I am real ~ with my own set of imperfections. 
I cry over anything sad, but I’m thankful for both the good and bad that made me who I am now. 
I’m encased in a shell that most people can never penetrate. But I tend to open up myself unguarded to those I care so much about. 
I do believe in happy endings, but I know life isn’t a fairly tale. 
I also believe that everything happens for a very good reason. 
I love my life, along with the people I share it with. 
Nobody really knows the real me… except me.
I believe in angels… I have a lot in my life. 
I believe in the goodness of people. 
I still dream, hope and wish like a child. 
I’m a selfish princess ~ what’s mine is mine alone. 
I care so much about what people say, but I never really listen anyway. 
In the end, no matter how much logic I put into something… I still end up following my heart ~ 
Oh well… that’s just me. 
Call me Yla ;)

    What happens when "happily ever after" has come and gone?

    On the eve of her only daughter, Princess Raven's wedding, an aging Snow White finds it impossible to share in the joyous spirit of the occasion. The ceremony itself promises to be the most glamorous social event of the decade. Snow White’s castle has been meticulously scrubbed, polished and opulently decorated for the celebration. It is already nearly bursting with jubilant guests and merry well-wishers. Prince Edel, Raven's fiancé, is a fine man from a neighboring kingdom and Snow White's own domain is prosperous and at peace. Things could not be better, in fact, except for one thing:

    The king is dead.

    The queen has been in a moribund state of hopeless depression for over a year with no end in sight. It is only when, in a fit of bitter despair, she seeks solitude in the vastness of her own sprawling castle and climbs a long disused and forgotten tower stair that she comes face to face with herself in the very same magic mirror used by her stepmother of old.

    It promises her respite in its shimmering depths, but can Snow White trust a device that was so precious to a woman who sought to cause her such irreparable harm? Can she confront the demons of her own difficult past to discover a better future for herself and her family? And finally, can she release her soul-crushing grief and suffocating loneliness to once again discover what "happily ever after" really means?

    Only time will tell as she wrestles with her past and is forced to confront The Reflections of Queen Snow White.
