"My mission in life is not to merely survive, but to thrive and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour and some style" 
- Maya Angelou

Hahah so i may fracture my neck and have it sitting in this same position I have in these photos, because I realised whenever someone tells me to take a photo, my body automatically shifts to this. I am getting a little bit too excited about my optometry courses and anything eye related in general, like a little worm squealing inside me, this is what I wore to a conference for children's and women's eye care. Although the conference was for a lot more mature aged people, I just had to attend it and plus we were given a free 3 course meal so how could I really say no, right? It actually made the perfect excuse to indulge in my field

Lots of love

SHEIKE pants and top; worn as a jumpsuit

"You are the books you read, the films you watch, the music you listen to, the people you meet, the dreams you have, the conversations you engage in. You are what you take from these. You are the sound of the ocean, the breach of fresh air, the brightest light and the darkest corner. You are a collective of every experience you have had in your life. You are every single day. So drown yourself in a sea of knowledge and existence. Let the words run through your veins and let the colours fill your mind."

My wardrobe has recently turned in to a sea of black, building up one detail at a time. What I saw once as chic and easy to wear has become so dull, so I made myself a new mission to buy something coloured and patterned every time I am out shopping. It was the greatest mission at first and now its all I buy, and I am so glad I did this. Like this jumpsuit for example; brings back summer in this chilly weather; I adore it to bits. 

Lots of love

Rollercoaster life

"No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than it's opposite"

"Dont let the world make you hard, dont let pain make you hate, dont let bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place"
-Kurt Vonnegut

There s nothing more perfect than honesty, real people and flaws, its what makes our life beautiful, humble and worthwhile. Life is never a competition, its just about your happiness. Be the funny light-hearted brown eyed girl you are and walk away from negativity. There s going to be people that are going to put you down, cut them out and don't feel like you owe anything to any one. Whether it be reading that sweet novel under a pretty tree or the city walk with your jumpsuit and heels, do what makes you happy, and live the life you want. 

Lots of love

Down town alley


BETTS shoes

"I asked her if she believed in love, and she smiled and said it was her most elaborate method of self harm"
-Benedict Smith
I deserve a big fat gold medal, a sticker or some sort of award. Because lately I have been fighting off procrastination so bad, choosing a day for the shoot and taking photos and most important of alll the weather! Like one minute its so windy, I'm flapping around like a flag next minute its so hot, I cant fathom what to wear. A couple of months ago, I told you guys I hated lipstick, something has come up and I have changed my mind. Not the bit where they leave you red stains on your teeth or the icky scaly feeling you have to endure the whole day. But I found the prettiest little shade of lippy and now I now I feel so empty without it. Its like literally the most perfect stick of magic, I could rave on about it till the end of my life. 

Lots of love

Life s an art

'And once the storm is over, you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won't be the same person who walked in'
-Haruki Murakami

Oh my goodness, this Saturday I have completely adored markets, going back through my vast amount of random (but awesome) things I had found. Did I really need a harmonica? Or a Mexican straw hat with long tassels to keep the flies away (this isn't Egypt for Gods sake). I could take my bean bag and camp there all night, surrounded with the most perfect weather, mouth watering food and a cute band playing till our fuzzy hearts are fulfilled. I bought so much for such little price, the happiness is killing me (haha not literally). I have fallen in love with the old and the gold, I like finding things out of the norm and making an art from it. Art isn't supposed to look nice, it's supposed to make you feel things, that was my aim, to provoke feelings and take aspirations from my new found items.

                    COCO print top                                                               shoulder crop vest                                         striped top

             asymmetrical skirt                                                      nautical skirt                                                               lace skirt

Walked in to my wardrobe and realised 90 % of everything i own is black and white, it scares and comforts me, at times it makes me feel like a walking mime. Its the assurance of still managing to look 'ok' having 2 mins to get ready which is my scenario half the time I am on my way out. I managed to step that little bit out of my comfort and try nautical incoporating all my sea blues, greens and the beautiful earthy colours in general makes me feel somewhat less guilty. These are a collection of clothing I would die of happiness to have, which wouldnt be a good thing because i still want to be able to wear them. Sheinside is having a massive sale selling clothing as cheap as $7 (thats crazzzyy right?), I am literally spending hours after hours shopping through their site. So give them a check out soon

Lots of love Aleena xo
