If I wore my emotions on my sleeve, would I be easier to love?. I find my self drifting further away because I feel misunderstood. I decide to open up, I get disappointed. I immerse my self in my work, and I’m told money isn’t everything. I say: I don’t care about money, I’m just Self-Reliant.

I’m asked: Oh so you don’t need anyone?. I ask: Why is my being self-reliant offensive?. I’m told: You need a vacation. I say: Yes that’s a good idea. I’m told: Just as long as it’s convenient for everyone. I ask: What do you want from me? I’m told: You’re too sensitive, and you work too much. I say: Yeah that’s true, I’m working on cutting back on work, and being less affected by others. I’m told: As long as you don’t become selfish. I ask: Can I just be me?, Why is being my self not good enough?.  I’m asked: Huh?, What are you talking about? I never said you shouldn’t be your self. I say: Oh ok, as long as I’m who you want me to be, then i can be my self? I’m told: You’re just being difficult. I say: It’s just another Friday.

Have a wonderful 4th weekend!

#OOTD(black lace ‘n polka project)

black lace 'n polka 3black lace 'n polka 1 black lace 'n polka 2 black lace 'n polka 4Happy Friday! Hope you had a wonderful week! I went for a bit rough on the edges look with today’s post. This Tote bag was a DIY project I made at The Make Den Toronto while I was taking sewing classes last summer which I was extremely proud of. The Make Den is a really cool and chic sewing boutique located in Bloordale and Leslieville. If you’re in the Toronto area and contemplating on improving on your sewing skills or to learn how to sew from scratch but are feeling a little intimated and don’t know where to start, then i highly recommend checking them out. Let me know what you think of how i styled my little DIY project with this lace F21 Top and Bebe Heels.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday! Hope you had a wonderful week. As usual, I pulled this look with all really old items I’ve had for many years except this Forever 21 bag
which I bought a few months ago and love! I can honestly say that the best part about blogging for me is really utilizing my wardrobe and digging deep into what I have and mixing it up the best possible ways. I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older and wiser, or I’ve just plainly become cheap, but I really don’t want to buy any new items for my wardrobe. I’ve put that whole ‘I have nothing to wear, while stirring at a closet full of clothes stigma to rest’.

I moved recently and donated over 30% wardrobe and I plan on editing some more and getting rid of another 20%. I’m already finding it easier to get ready in the morning having less to choose from. My plan is to only keep items that I absolutely love.

I’ve tried a lot of different looks over the years and can honestly say that I had fun doing so, and now I feel It’s time I state my true style (whatever that is) and who I really am, which means my outfits posts will consist more of what I’m wearing on a daily bases and less planning. Also, I no longer want to keep a schedule for my posts. I love blogging, and will continue blogging as long as blogs are still around, and maybe one day it will be a full time job, but for now, I work two full time jobs as a teacher and a stylist, and that is the only schedule I want to have. As well, Fashion will remain the main focus of my blog but I also plan on incorporating some lifestyle and some randoms as well moving forward. After all, I started this blog as an outlet to express my self and who I’m as a person, and Fashion & Beauty is a big part of my Identity, but I also make a mean lasagna and love parading through the aisles at home depot. Last but not least, I will be switching to self host my blog in the near future. My goal is to incorporate my blog with my business website, still using WP platform at wp.org. I’m holding on for now because there are some jetpack features which I’m hoping will be available on wp.org to make my transition painless. And that’s it! I thank you for taking the time to read, and I’ll see you next week! Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday! Hope you had a wonderful week. We’re slowly transitioning in to summer here in Toronto, but this week is a bit chilli in the mornings so as much as it’s shorts season, I still feel more comfy throwing on a warm blazer in the morning and this old tweed blazer is working perfectly for this transitional time. Hope you like it. Have a wonderful weekend!
