Attraversare.

I am changing as I am aging. I miss the old parts of me. The naivety, the innocence, the faith… My emotions were always so erratic, and yes it caused instability, but it also allowed me to feel passion. I am left in awe when I reflect on myself and realize how cynical I have…

BTS of blogging

Hi friends, So as you can possibly imagine, there is a lot of work that goes into blogging. It isn’t just as simple as “take a picture, write a caption and post”. There is a lot of work that goes into the before and after part of the whole process as well. Since a lot…

Dear 20s, you make me miss my teenage years.

It’s currently 12:25 am, and I am sitting in bed with streams of mascara and tears running down my face.Yes, I didn’t wash my makeup off my face tonight, I am exhausted. And yes, I am crying but then again, what’s new. This feels like Déjà vu. I am replaying my whole life in my…

How to get out of your comfort zone!

Leather Lookbook!

Hi ladies, So, I have been wearing a lot of (faux) leather lately. For multiple reasons: it looks great, it is perfect for the slightly warmer weather, and it matches with pretty much everything! In my opinion, everyone should own four of these staple leather pieces: 1. David Lernery‘s “Draped Short”, leather shorts. 2. H&M‘s “Short Skirt”, leather…

Anxiety No More!

Happy humpday loves! Life gets busy. Busy and crazy. I wish I had more hours in a day, I always feel as though I need more time to do everything I need to do. What ends up happening is I stay up until 4 am getting everything done, and then I am cranky the whole…
