New Year, New Start, Hello 201710:22:00
I wanted to start the new year by sharing some personal thoughts. I believe Life is all about balance and as we start 2017, I can't help but look for that stability in life. I want to achieve things and I don't want to wait for a shoe to drop to signal the beginning. As we say hello to a new year, I wanted to start with a lookbook that showcases my search for balance.
This post is all about the balance of yin and yang. The first look is my take on breaking out of the stereotypical 'pretty girls wear heels, little dresses and red lipstick' mould. Recent events have made me realise that I'm not the fun loving girl next door who smiles at everyone and goes 'aww cute' for everything. I'm the girl who likes to be in-charge. I'm the girl who doesn't smile easy but smiles with all her heart and soul when she does. I'm the girl who doesn't believe in being casually dressed no matter how casual an event is. I'm also the girl who doesn't believe that you need heels and fancy jewellery to look pretty. Be a girl who wears a pretty dress with sneakers because she likes to run, a choker because she likes the style and a sloppy jacket because that's what you want to wear. Be a girl who doesn't need to have long hair or thigh gaps or abs to feel beautiful. I wore what is definitely sexy dress and toned it down with my oversized back jacket, my kiss choker and no makeup. I feel that you should be a girl with a mind of her own who won't compromise her integrity just to make a quick buck. Be a girl with a heart of gold and a will of steel.
In the end I think, life is all about finding yourself. I spent last week hearing from friends I thought were seemingly happy but weren't. The meaning of life is hidden in the simple things. I haven't yet found the goal I want to work for but then that isn't the point. Balancing your dreams with reality...that is where I think, true happiness will lie.....
