Work Out

Relax-wear / sport luxe is everywhere now, you can really style your workout gear and no one will question you haha. I always drive past this forest on the way home and it reminds me of a forest Theresa and I ran through in New Zealand. I have been in before but never running. I guess the combination of wanting to re-live those memories and utilise these pants that clearly state ‘WORK OUT’ made me stop and embrace hahaha. Now I realised how unfit I am too, time to snap myself into gear!! 

This week, I realised in everything there is beauty. in any circumstance any single occasion in life IT IS THERE. Of course there are times when it feels so dark but the difference between people that really embrace and enjoy life is that, seeing this beauty comes so naturally. Sometimes it's good to remind ourselves of actually how little we came in knowing and having. All of this knowledge and the possessions we have are here for us to utilise productively. If it gets to the point where it effects our outlook negatively, CULL physical and mental cleanouts are always good (my brother told me this yesterday). We are not always in control of what comes into our lives but we are in total control of what we let effect us. Things that are not beneficial can be made powerless. We have to let there be room to be inspired by the things we want to have an effect on us. Okay that's all I had to say hahaha.

But I do want to leave you with this incredible song that is a dream to run to, on full blast through a forest~~ haha

So last night I spent hours again looking through old flickr accounts that used to inspire me beyond words. I re-remembered how it felt to get that burning artistic / expressionist desire to photograph my exact mood into some kind of dream-like image. It's an incredibly releasing thing haha, Now it's a matter of merging an outfit into that and somehow creating a fusion of mood and also inspiring people to get that same inspiration kick. blogs are funny things. It's just one big diary that you can use any form of media really to express yourself. And looking back on my old flickr, I remembered how it felt at certain times, and I am really glad I did that in order to reflect now! It's so powerful that nostalgic feeling. 

I heard a song the other day which I used to sing in school.  The line of lyrics that really triggered me was 'I know I'm filled to be emptied again, this seed I've received I will sew". This one sentence brought so much clarity to me. I guess no matter what you do there are times of inspiration and times of dryness. But it's the knowing that both seasons you go through, are just as important as the other. It's like you can only take so much, and you need to be emptied again to grow upon or receive new perspective. You can't just stay filled with what you know and expect this to last.

I have realised now, growing up I depended so strongly upon God and the knowing he was looking after me. Naturally I have this grand optimistic outlook on life, I always love to spend my time enjoying the moments and not thinking too far in advance because I have a deep down certainty which ever direction life goes, I will still have this joy and a peace. But the thing is, you can't receive this by pursuing a shallow 'happiness' which a lot of us are brought up thinking, via media / people in our lives etc. This is a dead end, you may have fleeting moments of it but it's never going to be a strong foundation to build or feel secure upon. I spent the beginning of this year living out of home trying new things for the sake of "growing". I guess looking back, I was bored and just a bit out of touch with my morals. I wanted to feel something new and get out of my comfort zone. This resorted to me going totally against my conscious, although my "experiments", most people would laugh at and say they are harmless and innocent, the point is, I relied on a shallow mood or feeling with no substance to push me into the direction of doing this. It's so easy to feel "okay" about doing just about anything nowadays, the grey area is getting larger and larger and without believing in something we can literally fall for ANYTHING. And I am not a dramatic person, really not. But I just have to get this off my chest because I genuinely love and want the best for people and lately I have been seeing confusion greater then ever. The thing is, we all get to a point in life where we crave black and white. We need firm morals to base our lives upon. We need to be surrounded by kind people who care about our well being and we need to be selfless enough as people to do this for the people who do it for us. And this means we have to reach a point of maturity where life is about serving.

These Raybans would have to be on my top list. The sleek gold frame and intricacy of detail on the sides get me! The edges fade out to clear :o :) 
Vision Direct are where they are from! This online store has a TON of labels from affordable to luxury. I think Rayban are just cool and by looking at the designs they just get it to me. I am so excited to wear them into Spring, Summer now - lots of long Summer road trips to come ;)

ARK desirables

I want to share with you guys some of my current inspirations. Two piece sets have been an absolute favourite of mine! I love the youthfulness of them, they are comfortable like jumpsuits and you can still mix and match tops to bottoms!

These sets are all from UK based store ARK. I found they have a good mix of diversity. 
This store also has a cool range of themed outfits, a strong emphasis on the 90s music scene and lots lots more :)
Okay you can check these sets out HERE !

This year has been incredible so far and It’s the first year I’ve set aside specifically to prioritise my time for collaborations with different brands.
One of my absolute favourite bike brands, LEKKER approached me to work together and it was honestly the most exciting thing! Over the past few months I’ve been posting outfits and keeping my bike in the shots because I want to feature it not just as a means of transport but a beautiful accessory!
And I always try to be totally honest when writing about what I feel, I don’t want to sound like I am making sales pitches on my own blog, I just really want to let out how blessed I feel to have these opportunities and some how, good things keep coming to me, I don’t know why or how I can show my gratitude for these things but I guess I will just keep posting and informing you of things that bring joy to me, I guess that was the reason I began to capture them in the first place!
