Apart from dreaming of Paris, complaining about the weather, romanticize and spend days with indecision, I also obsesses over certain items of clothing that lasts for about a season and then I can't stand it anymore. Turtlenecks are one of them. I previously made a post about this certain piece of clothing which you can read, here. Being extremely indolent in terms of blogging for the past few weeks, I did come up with ideas for blog posts and portfolios(mostly late at night, when I should be sleeping). One of which was styling turtlenecks in different ways and showing them in different blog posts over the course of winter arrival(how is it not winter yet?). Now no one really pulls off turtlenecks as Diane Keaton did over the years but I promise to absolutely let that influence all the styling ways. There's a new Editorial/Interview from our WorkWeekChic, featuring Ireen from www.ideel.com. Make sure to check that out, you guys will love it.

A friend of mine has opened up a little shop on eBay called, 'Frock Emporium', for the thrifty fashionista. Check it out? I really love this dress by Miss Selfridge.

Also, make sure to follow me on TWITTAH(!), TUMBLR and INSTAGRAM.

At A Place Like This

Not the usual kind of post that is expected on this space but for the lack of effort on my part, to dress up and produce more outfit posts(I simply don't feel like it and for as long as I have been blogging, I learned not to force myself). So I decided to share certain thoughts(this should be considered as a major life hack and how not to lose your sh*t), accompanied by some pictures of a little festival celebration. This topic is something very highly regarded in my life, a lesson that I had to learn while disaffiliating myself from the credulous self. We are surrounded by different kinds of people in our everyday life. Most relationships(whichever kind that might be) are fleeting. You'll lose old friends, fall apart with people who once meant a lot to you, casually and unknowingly just simply lose any contact. People change, priorities change and we grow up a little everyday. That's life for you. One thing that never really change is that our life somehow, is a little(or lot, depending on how high up your walls are) influenced by the people around us. It's only natural that you pick on these energy and act accordingly.

If you're not miraculously blessed, you will meet people that will supposedly(there's no nicer way to say this), drag you down. If you face a similar situation like the person behind the computer screen, sitting down to write this post, sometimes, these people will reduce you to your worst, induce nightmares that even you didn't know it exists. Thus, it is very important to surround yourself with people that influences your daily life in a positive way. Being around people that are nice, ambitious(in a healthy way) and creative makes all the difference. The effects of these people, you choose to surround yourself with, shows much more when they are not there and that matters more because the after-effect lasts longer than the situation itself. Obviously it's not always possible to choose the people you're surrounded with but you can choose, who influences your life.

It's very common to lose your way in the middle,  lose the track of the path you wanted to walk on but losing that because of other people is unfair. Everyone deserves people in their life that would make them overcome their limitations. Today, I'm surrounded by the most amazing, creative and beautiful people that I could have ever asked for and it makes a huge difference. The kind of person I am today, the continuous strive to be better at life and the things I do has all been because of my choice to surround myself with these people. So people, if there's someone(or a group) out there that makes you feel any less than happy, lose them. Life is too short to be surrounded by negative energy,

ALL OF ME

Kind of rushing the writing part of this post mostly because it's 3 AM and also a little bit because I don't have much to say this week. I'm not quite sure how floral printed started making it's way into my wardrobe and I'm considering this as a phase and hoping it'll pass soon(like all good things) since it's already Autumn(no it really is and if you listen closely, you'll hear me yodeling like Rosalie Allen or at least that's what I would like to think). Currently stuck in the process of making my portfolio for fashion school and losing sleep for a night or two in that process. So if any one of you have any tips, please be kind enough to share. Any help of any kind would be much appreciated. Hope you guys are having a great week.
