Since my last couple of posts have been kind of depressing and sad. My mood swings are real at the moment so I thought I should seize the opportunity to write when I am in a good mood before it goes downhill again. I have yet to find out what triggers my good ‘episodes’, all I know is that besides being sick (again) I feel kind of happy and optimistic for once. I wonder if anyone ever reads this or if it’s basically just me talking to myself like an idiot. Oh well, I guess it would probably better that way. Anyway, today’s shoot took place on a roof top around my neighborhood, probably one of my favorite places in the world. Up there you have an incredible view of the city without having to share it with anyone else. Once in while I go up there to watch the sun set and take pictures, which – btw if you would like to see them – are often posted on my Instagram later.
I don’t really know what I was exactly expecting from Uni. Maybe less chaos, less people, less ‘I don’t know what I’m doing, help’. To be honest, over the past two months I have been trying to push any thoughts of the future aside which kind of works out until you realize that just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. So I have also been making good use of my second trusty coping mechanism. I am not proud of it, but it’s been a while since I have bought as much as I do now. The bad thing is that I don’t even do planned shopping trips anymore. Since I work basically in the shopping area in my town, I happen to pop in and out of stores quite frequently ‘just to have a look’. ‘Just having a look’ quickly turns to ‘just trying it on for fun’ to ‘nothing haunts you more than things you didn’t buy’ to ‘I’ll pay by card’. On the brighter side of things, I have accumulated enough props for the upcoming 20 posts, woohoo.
I have never considered myself a sporty or athletic person until it sort of just happened. I was never really the kid to be all active, playing sports, running around and stuff. More like the reading, drawing, “please don’t make me catch things because I probably wont’t” type of girl. And I have always hated running, which is something that hasn’t changed at all. The only time you’ll see me run is probably for my life or out of money. But what has miraculously changed is that I actually found a sport that I enjoy. I have been kickboxing for about 5 years now and I still train at least 2 times a week. Whenever I tell this someone I am still astonished by how fast time flies and the fact that my lazy ass managed to pull through. Even though I sometimes have to force myself to get ready and leave my bed, I am always disappointed when for some reason I can’t make it to practice. Which just goes to show that everyone can find joy in exercise, you just actually have to give it a chance and find your thing.
Rihanna is one of the view artists that I have been listening to since I was basically ten. I am not ashamed to admit that I probably know all of her songs from her baby days to the savage she has become. There is just something about her besides her obvious beauty and the fact that she doesn’t seem to age at all. Just the way she doesn’t care about anyone’s opinion and always does what she wants is truly inspiring and makes her an icon of our time. She is not afraid of taking risks and still slays the game whether it’s fashion, music, acting or her own make up brand that is soon to be launched. I should probably stop right here before this turns into an open love letter, I think you get the point. So two weeks ago, my friends and I planned a night out – shocking, sometimes even I leave my house – and of course I was fully dedicated to finding a cool outfit. While digging through my closet I found this black over sized faux fur coat that I actually had wanted to sell, but never got around to do so. However, looking at it I just realized that this was actually a pretty bad ass piece and – now everything makes sense – something I could picture Rihanna wearing. Long story short, I have fallen completely back in love and decided to style it in this post, which is btw the exact look I wore out minus the shades.
About two weeks ago I saw a fashion video from Tess Christine on Youtube where she recreated celebrity looks. For one outfit she wore some big glasses, something I normally would stay away from personally. I just never thought
