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"
-Nelson Mandela

This week has been filled up to the brim with highs and lows, Its pretty fascinating the amount of emotions the human soul can contain. I wake up most mornings, feeling enlightened by the sweet smell of flowers in in front of my window sill and the soft glistening ray of the sun slowly creeping in, making me all airy and I am floating on cloud 9 and no bad idea or thought can touch me because I am too good in a mood to potentially care. But then a few hours later I step on a freshly chewed gum with my new shoes and my gosh my day just goes downhill from there and then someone compliments my hair (like thanks babe I grew it myself), and I feel all happy again. My life is basically an emotional roller coaster. 

Lots of love

"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

"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.

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

2 things define you: Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything

I am home again, slowly breaking away from all my last semester studies and enjoying the peak of my new break. I took a long hot bath and now I'm sitting in my room with a hot chocolate in one hand and trying to juggle a Nickolas Spark book and scrolling through pinterest feeds with the other. It has been a long 6 months so far, the last minute exam crams and the 6 am alarms are all over. Winter is slowly creeping up on us and the moment I step out of the house, I can feel the chills down my spine. I found the above faux fur coat on-line and its my only shelter against the cold breeze. There is one thing for sure thats going to be happening this break and my enthusiasm is killing me right now, I'm going to invest more time in blogging. 

Good night for now but not for long

"She always had that about her, that look of otherness, of eyes that see things much too far and of thoughts that wander off the edge of the world"
-Joanne Harris

My existence at the edge of the cliff felt almost unrealistic, it was the way the movies portrayed it, I wanted to lean forward and have a titanic moment by myself, to feel the cold hair against my warm skin and have my long rapunzel like hair sway with the wind. Then a voice within me whispered it s like the heavens, everything felt too perfect for reality. And this dress was my best friend hugging on to my body and and giving me the small warmth I had desired. This is part of how I had spent my easter holidays, the other half I m looking forward to the easter show, the thought of the show bags, events, rides, and competitions gets me too excited to keep still. I leave you now but not forever, have a lovely day 

Lots of love
