Keep on keeping on.


Some days aren't so fun. Some days you're sick and you have a million and one things to do that don't involve being sick. Some days you're hormonal and bloated and feel gross. Some days you just feel tired and lonely and fed up. And some days you don't get something you really wanted. And then you doubt yourself and your abilities completely. And it can be hard to pick yourself back up again and get some perspective. And it can be hard to accept that you'd told yourself you'd be okay if this didn't happen. And it can be hard to say, well, did I really want this anyway? Sometimes you have to just accept that some things just happen. And maybe some things don't happen because they're making way for even better things. Who knows, really? We don't really know why things happen, but all we can do is learn from them. And all I know is that the belief that everything happens for a reason is sometimes the only thing that gets you through. And in the scheme of things, maybe this doesn't matter so much. I don't know. But I guess I have to take the advice of my boyfriend- keep on keeping on.



Not a lot to say today cause I'm kinda sick and while I've kept going all day with writing and attempting to work out, I'm starting to feel crappy. But yeah. This skirt is actually a dress, which you will know if you've been following my blog for a little bit. I'm running out of ideas with 30 for 30 and getting stuck in a bit of a rut. I'm excited for it to be over though because while it's been a great experience and I've learnt a lot, it's dragged out for much longer than I would have liked. It's funny, before I started blogging, or at least reading blogs, I would never have thought of wearing a dress a skirt, but this worked quite well. Bloggers are so creative- remixing is definitely the best skill I've learnt from blogging!!


dress (worn as skirt)- Modcloth
black top- H&M
ballet flats- H&M
necklace- New Look
I just noticed I was meant to be wearing my leather jacket with this outfit. I am obviously not wearing my leather jacket. This is what being sick will do to you.


Oh as you can see, I attempted winged eyeliner. I have many talents in life- I am an excellent tap-dancer and I make a mean sweet potato curry- but the ability to do winged eyeliner is not one of them.


I'm gonna go lie down and try to sleep off this gross Summer cold.
Have a wonderful day,

  2. I can vaguely remember the first time I saw a blogger wearing a dress as a skirt (back before I had a blog myself) and thinking it was the most amazing thing in the entire world, suddenly my wardrobe had pretty much doubled. The things you learn....

    Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well, I hope you feel better soon xo

  3. I loove dresses as skirt, or dresses as tops, it definitely opens up the wardrobe a lot. This dress has such a gorgeous print.

  8. I feel pretty blergh-y myself today too. Hope you're feeling better! I find I just look absolutely ridiculous with black eyeliner, which is too bad because I love it on others.
