I know I'm about a month behind when it comes to blogging. And I know nobody in their right mind would wear this now at the of october. These photos are from last months, but sense Im so behind on my blogging, I didnt have a choice but to post this pictures now... Although I wish I could say that its still warm enough to get away like this in the middle of this rainy and dark october. I mention rainy and dark also as an excuse to why I haven't taken any pictures this october. Yesterday I was so sure I was going to get some pictures but I started raining the minute I got out of the house. It has been literally raining the whole months. Im going to try this weekend but I highly doubt it. We will see...
Hey guys! I can't believe we are already in the middle of October. October is one of my favorite months of the year... I love to see the leaves fall, I love the colors of fall and I love how you can almost feel the winter cold in the air. I really don't like the call but I do appreciate all the changes that our mother nature goes through... Always reminding us of her power. Last weekend I was out of town for a YMCA course on leadership. Being a leader and the mening behind has earn a really important place in my work and my personal life. I feel so blessed to be part of the YMCA and to be able to attend small courses to enrich myself and built myself up. Couple of weeks ago I got the news that I got a YMCA scholarship to attend another leadership course, but this time in Edinburg, Scotland. Im going to be gone for a week, and I still cannot get over the fact that Im going to be attending this course. Its truly a privilege, having the opportunity to learn and educate yourself basically for free, just because you are part of an organisation like YMCA is truly a privilege.
I really don't have a valid excuse or reason to explain why I've been away. I guess work just got away. I shot this look back in september right a day or two after I got the keratin treatment for the first time. I love my curls but I needed a change. I knew that dying my hair another color wasn't going to be an option. I coincidentally got a coupon code and payed almost half of the prize. Its been two weeks since I got it and I just love it. My hair still curly but the curls are less tighter. When I straighten my hair I love do it once and It stays straight... Humidity is not a big issue anymore... Im so pleased!
Godmorning guys! Don't be surprise that Im wearing mom jeans again, I told you I was going to be living in them for a while! Last time when I was at topshop I decided to get two pairs and this is the other pair I got...I've been loving the slouchy meets put together style lately. I guess that the coat is responsible for bringing the whole look together. This oversize coat is one of my favorite pieces in my closet at the moment, so you are probably going to see me in it again. I decided to get it after my favorite coat got stolen last time I was out clubbing. I know Im short but this length kinda works for me, don't you think?
Ahh, I love this part of the city in the day light, at night time this turns into a place where almost all the hipsters hang out... But at daylight it almost feels like traveling back in time... In a way I like to think this looks is a little bit like Paris meets London.. or am I wrong?
Crop top + Boots (Monki), Cardigan+ Skrit +Necklace + Hat(H&M)
I can't wait you see me 'round the corner,
running up into the upswing
Call me, I'm done, when I speak about the truth
The moment come the bottom to the down beat,
It's not easy there when you feel the wear
Patients bring the chair, ooh-oh oooh-oh
Everyday do you notice that we're never free
Why can't you be Happy with me?
Everyday we are running, though we're not trapped in the sea
Oh, why can't you be Happy with me?!
Oh, why can't you be Happy with me?!
Holychild Im in love with you! I found this new indie band called holychild. I just watched an interview that explains the meaning behind their cool songs and now I feel more in love... The song are basically a critic towards the image of ourselves that is being projected, reproduced, constructed and indoctrinated trough the media and social norms. She basically criticized gender roles, having to follow norms and unconsciously/secretly loving the fact that you are following a systematical structure because you are longing for stability. Happy with me is about our lack of freedom, we are basically trapped in a world that constructs ours live by reproducing power relations, norms and so on. In a world like that being outside the norm becomes instantly a problem... So that's why the hook goes, Why can't you be happy with ME.
At the moment I'm so obsessed about this song because I feel like people and the rest of world usually can't accept us just the way we are. In relationships, friendships and even in inside of our families I see we are always expecting more from us. I also know that every time I hear: why can't you be happy with me... And immediately, I think about my five year relationship that ended rather abruptly (just recently) and being rejected by another guy soon after that...
The part when she sings that we are not free and we keep running away almost as we were trapped in the sea is something I can totally relate in so many different ways. The fact that I always find myself running away from conflicts, somehow always finding myself in sensitive matters, always wanting to move, the feeling of being trapped, feeling overwhelm and also feeling underestimated is so frustrating and numbing. I know it has to do with my insecurities and what not. I wish I could be more accepting and I wish others could be more accepting of me. But at the same time I know there is a limit and I know that I will never accept bad behavior from people just because they are the way the are. Being rude and playing games, playing with emotions is not natural. And never OK
I think Im going to end it here... Before I disclose to much and I lose the flow... I love music like this, its accessible, catchy but it also makes you think about the lyrics and the meaning behind them... Why can't you be happy with me?
