Brace Yourself For TODAY’S WORD…Lol, No Worries, It Isn’t Deep, Deep Is Passé

I haven’t blogged in a while, and I feel it.  Blogging is cathartic for me, this is one of the main reasons I do it.  Anyway, a short hiatus was needed.  Life was happening, intensely, right before my very eyes, and I’ve been thinking a lot about it…how people come and go like a vapour, (some you thought would stay for a lifetime others you may have known would be seasonal), my mortality, how things are rarely what they appear, unexpected circumstances, the valleys, the peaks, letting go…life.  Today I had no desire to blog about beauty or fashion, neither means much in the big scheme…

It’s only one day lovelies, I think…hmmmm.  Not to fret, I’m pretty sure I’m still obsessed.  Did you see the Marc Jacobs show?! Reed Krakoff?!  Comme Des Garçons???!?!?  See?  Clearly I’m still a work in progress…I digress.

IMG_2056Life is good, but really, it’s all just one big illusion; it feels like a game at times.  TRY…to smile like crazy everyday, laugh constantly until you’re rolled over, love people…and I mean the UNLOVABLE, think positively and be yourself…seriously, be yourself.  No matter what dramas unfold before you, try to remember ‘this too shall pass,’ the other option is to allow them to have you contemplating jumping off a short pier; when they’re only tests in the first place.  I know, could I possibly be anymore cliche?  Who have I become?!?!  I suppose clichés are this for a reason…Oh, and of course, a great skincare regimen, loads of water, plenty of sleep and maybe one fabulous piece from fashion week wouldn’t hurt…even during the valley moments, you’ll want to look your best.

In all seriousness, In the end, you’ll either be loved or not, can’t please them all.  I know without a shadow of doubt God loves us more than we are able to comprehend; no matter our blunders, and He will NEVER relinquish it. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you miss the mark, we all do, keep it moving.  It all boils down to unconditional, agape love.  Translation:  “Love me as I am, I’ll do the same in return…of course, if this doesn’t work for you, we’ll have it your way… I still love you though.”  Let’s purpose to love ourselves and one another through all of our junk, we’ve all got at least a spackling.  No need to be so deep and melodramatic over situations we can’t control no matter how we try forcing it, this is so last year…no, the year before…is it simply a charade?

Thank you for allowing me to pontificate…stay tuned for a fun-filled fashion or beauty post for the next one, lol.


It’s Beginning To Feel A Lot Like Summer

Today is the first truly warm, bordering on hot,  day in Southern California, and I love everything about it!  As much as I love layering and the cool, brisk days of winter here in Cali, I’m ready for the beach, barbecues (veggie burgers and seitan please) and getting the sun kissed glow from being in the elements a bit too long most likely. Because I needed to look somewhat put together today with meetings on the books, I’d have hours to myself afterwards, therefore, I chose a lightweight, simple ensemble.

This is my first time wearing this very comfy, sheer Nesh top and lightweight Anine Bing jeans. I went with my most comfortable Ash wedge shoes and minimal accessories. I don’t always hit the mark, however, I think I did good today;)…

only quandary ahead of me?  How to keep the white spot-free…ah well, an ongoing dilemma;))
