I believe that the hardest thing in life is figuring out your lifetime goal.
Seeking - in the midst of all the calamity that every day life could offer -
pushing, and pulling, to find something to confidently stand for...
isnt as "easy-peasy lemon-squeezy" as we think it is, but awesome and actually life changing..
Because I mean what's life if you live for nothing right?

Wether it be to obtain a higher education, job,personal goals,
providing for yourself or your family, becoming an example,
making an impact in your school or community, whatever it could possibly be...
maybe even standing for self respect & self-confidence..
Just stand for something.

Although it may be silly, but I believe that we can all stand for this one thing..
something that might seem easy but actually quiet a challenge.


Because it seems so small, so insignificant at the moment,
but can impact a person's life in so many ways.
There is not one person out there who is exactly the same.
But we all love to be loved.
As babies we NEED it.
As kids we SEEK it.
As teenagers we try and UNDERSTAND it.
As adults we LEARN from it.
and its crazy but, as humans we are the only ones who have the capacity to GIVE it.

Standing for something isnt just something you say.
It's something you live by, act upon, and challenge yourself to be an example of.

That's what I stand for.

What about you?

With a dress so intricate, 
I couldn't help but keep the outfit as simple as possible.
No necklace needed, 
it would take away from the perfect amount of neckline.
A very unique sleeve,
an accessory in itself not to mention beautiful.

Thank you to & the ladies (Katie) 
who have always included me in such an awesome long-lasting collaboration.
Cheers to your wonderful website!

Good Evening,
Picked myself up today and grabbed my boyfriend along 
to snap a few pictures to add into this little blog of mine. 
We've both been busy doing our own things 
that when we do come together we agree to rest and chill in each other's companies.
 {Completely content with such an amazing guy} 

Thanks to Missguided Clothing for gifting me this awesome romper.
Can't even explain how insanely ecstatic I was 
when I realized it arrived - I mean come on look at it! -

With love,

Walked down the same alley spots and streets to discover that little section and part of an abondoned
building to take these photos...Theres so many places to take photos, it just takes a little of an adventure to
find those golden spaces haha
Thanks again to my photograpgher of the day - Emilia Ford!
I had to dress down this little skirt of mine from Chictopia's Shop (here)
and paired it with a muscle tee from Zara and wedges from ALDO.

Not entirely sure where my weeks have been going haha it's been one of those days where Mondays
have been jumbled up as Thrusdays and Wednesdays to Fridays. 
On my handy dandy free time I finally took the time to snap some shots of the many long-awaited
outfits on my list haha 
(Much Thanks to Emilia Ford for the lovely photos).
Although the warmth of the sun has yet to start ceasing, I shall accept it because...well my wish in
becoming Storm from X-men will bever happen. Apparently only Halle Berry is qualified.
