Glyn, (nee Sutherland, 1864-1943), holding a book, was a bestselling romance novelist in the early 20th century, initially famous for her illicit and controversial “Three Weeks” (1907). Privately, Glyn was a favorite with royalty, including the Queens of Spain and Romania, and was the mistress of politician Lord Curzon, who gave her the sapphires she wears.

Do you want your children to inherit worthless European designers clothes and accessories marketed to Europeans and advertised on all white runways in Paris, Milan, London and Brasil or estates, trust funds and bank accounts?

Can I have like a shout out for Louis because I love him so much and my heart is beating out of my chest and I love him so much

OF COURSE WE CAN HAVE A SHOUT OUT FOR LOUIS.

I love him so much.

I hope you’re ready. I’m not.

*WARNING* Louis makes me swear a lot. So I hope you enjoy profanity.

Look at this gif. He looks like he’s about to screw up the entire 1DDay production with a shoelace. I love his mischievous little face.

WHY WOULD YOU NOT WANT TO HOLD HIS HAND. HE’S FRIGGING ROYALTY. Look at him with his siblings. If this doesn’t make you want to have children with a guy like Louis, I don’t know what will.

WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU WEARING? TIGHTS!? Look at those calves. And his thighs. And that ass. Oh my God, I want nothing more in life than to give Louis Tomlinson a leg massage.

This seems like a bad idea–but also entertaining. This whole scene destroyed me. Louis is lazy af. Same.

LOOK AT HIM TOUCHING HIS CHEST. THIS MAKES ME WANNA THROW UP. Look at that profile. I’ve never seen anything so gorgeous. Oh my God, can I just like lay in his hair and live there?

This is what an angel looks like.

His hips don’t lie. Even Zayn is distracted. Same. This is beautiful and needs to be talked about more.

You know what’s probably for the best? That Louis doesn’t do crotch grabs on stage. Can you imagine if he did this on stage? I’m actually 98093749287% positive everyone in the audience would faint and he’d just laugh at everyone unconscious on the ground.

WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS. He is Peter Pan. Look at that smile. Holy cow. I love him. Wowowowowowow.

HOW. I can’t even walk ten feet without tripping. HOW DOES HE DO THIS. HE JUST JUMPED LIKE SIX FUCKING FEET IN THE AIR. SIX. FUCKING. FEET. WHY DID LIAM LET HIM. WHAT WAS THIS ALL ABOUT.

I found this picture before the NBC Special. Imagine my surprise when I found out what he was actually dressed like Harry Potter for. LOOK AT HIS HAIR. LOOK AT HIS EYES. THOSE CHEEKBONES. OH MY GOD.

Looking at Louis I know why they wrote Ready to Run: Without you I’ll never make it out alive…because Louis Tomlinson is going to fucking kill me.

LOOK AT HIS COLLARBONES. YOU COULD CUT SOMEONES LIPS WITH THOSE IF YOU TRIED TO KISS THEM.

Wow. I want to paint my room the color of his eyes. Look at that smile. Look at his face, his skin is so soft looking I want to rub my cheek all over him. And his hair. Oh God. He’s dreamy.

LOOK AT HIM WITH LUX. I CAN’T BREATHE.

Here we have the tri-ficking-fecta of Louis in Suits. Good fucking bye.

What a time to be alive

James Bond.

I don’t know how we got to about four years and never realized that if we gave Louis a monkey our hearts would explode.

This should be put in a museum. *groans for the next century*

All I want is to be held the way Louis holds a microphone: protectively and sensually.

This fucking tank top. Are you telling me that a billionaire can’t afford more than one tank top for OTRA. I hate it. Look at his arms. I want to rub myself on his arms and hope that will keep me young forever. I love him. Look at his torso…ugh…

I wanna rub your pants too Louis. Same.

What a babe. Look at him. Ugh. He’s so attractive.

LOOK AT THAT FACE. Oh my God, I wanna rub my face on his scruff. I want to hold his cheeks and press kisses everywhere. Look at his angelicness.

When Louis points his finger at something, I want to jump off a roof. I hate that tattoo. Look at it. It’s so lucky to be that close to louis’ collarbones. Ugh.

I don’t know. i have a bit of a foot fetish when it comes to Louis. LOOK AT HIS FEET. IN HIS SOCKS. LOOK AT HIS FEETS. AND BABIES. TWO OF THEM. TWO BABIES. UGH.

I want this put in the foyer of my house so everyone who walks into my house knows that Louis is the king of the household.

I want this in my closet so I know no matter how good I look Louis Tomlinson is out in the world look sexy beyond belief.

WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS. WHAT A GIGGLY LITTLE MUNCHKIN. I bet he snorted. Oh my God. What a cutie pie–get me my inhaler. I’m dying.

Back to my foot fetish. look at his ankles. I hate when he rolls his pants. I hate Louis. Look at this outfit. The scruff. The gorgeousness. Stop licking your tongue Louis, I don’t have time for this.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN SOMETHING MORE BRITISH THAN LOUIS DRINKING TEA. BYE.

This makes me weak. Frozen. I can’t breathe. Look at that ass. Oh God. I love it.

Louis is a sin.

Sorry this was so long. I tried to narrow my pictures of his princely-ness but it’s really hard to narrow down Louis pictures. 

I love Louis.

I’m going to tattoo it on my forehead. I love him a lot.

CBS News: "Fakers gonna fake" Taylor Swift merch in China (x)

Taylor Swift shook off Apple and Spotify over music royalties, but now she’s going after what may be a more difficult target: Chinese counterfeiters.

If you’re a Taylor Swift fan in China, there are two ways to get merchandise – have someone buy it in the U.S. and ship it, or purchase a much cheaper counterfeit item. With this, the singer and businesswoman saw a problem – and an opportunity, reports CBS News correspondent Seth Doane.

“Nihao, it’s Taylor Swift. Be sure to check out my new authentic ‘merch,’ now available in China,” Swift can be seen saying in a commercial.

The superstar’s “merch,” also known as merchandise, will be available via two Chinese online retailers. Anti-piracy tags will allow consumers to confirm it’s the real deal.

Appealing to her die-hard Chinese fans didn’t take much more than a simplenihao, or hello.

“When that video came out, I was like… Oh my God, Taylor said 'hi’ to us in Chinese!” fan Kyle Zheng said.

Seventeen-year-old Zheng, 19-year-old Zhang Yunyi and 41-year-old Weng Hongtao are, in Taylor Swift-speak, not simply fans.

“Lately we just call ourselves 'Swifties,’” Weng said.

Zhang was wearing Taylor Swift Keds she had to import from the U.S.

“It means a lot for Chinese people to get to know that there’s a thing called copyright because in China we don’t have this kind of tradition or something to buy legit things,” Zhang said.

CBS News took a hidden camera into Beijing’s Silk Market, a hub for counterfeit goods, where we found Swift’s pirated album for sale.

Most of the Swift knock-offs can be found online, and they are easy to find. On the official U.S. website, TaylorSwift.com, we found a black “Shake It Off” t-shirt for about $30, and then in just minutes found the same type of t-shirt on Taobao.com, part of Alibaba, for 28 RMB – about $5, a fraction of the cost.

In a statement, Alibaba said it is “dedicated to the fight against counterfeits” and uses “technology… to scrub our platforms of counterfeits.”

The “Swifties” we spoke to told us they wouldn’t buy fake merch – no way.

“We want to dedicate our money for her,” Zheng said.

However, there is still a lot of counterfeit Taylor Swift “merch” online.

“But fakers gonna fake,” Zheng said, quoting Swift’s own lyrics.
