I’ve been a little MIA over the past few weeks, and while I hate that I’ve slacked off, it did give me time to rethink a few things. One of them is that I want to start releasing new videos every Wednesday instead, because as you’ve probably noticed, Fridays haven’t been working well for me.
Once upon a time – and by once upon a time I mean up until last December, when I took these pictures – this was my favourite dress. There has never been another piece of clothing in my wardrobe I cherished more. Whenever I needed a little pick-me-up, felt happy and wanted to celebrate, or just wanted to feel pretty, I’d wear my “pony dress”. If you walked past the store I used to work at on a day when I had it on, I’m sure you’d spot me mindlessly petting the fluffy horses.
The internet is so full of motivational quotes that by now most of us are immune to them. Every now and then, however, we come across one that jumps off the screen to come live inside of us. That’s what happened to me this week. Routinely scrolling through my Instagram feed, I found this quote:
As I mentioned last week, my love for the pink bomber was born on the day I tried on Valfré’s Mermaid jacket at Lady Petrova. Wearing it felt like a magical hug and though I fell head over heels for it, I was there to buy a dress I’d had my eye on forever so I ended up leaving the bomber behind. A week later it was sold out and I really regretted not buying it, so I started looking for an alternative.
A couple of years ago my mum decided to throw a Thanksgiving lunch even though it’s not really a holiday we celebrate here in Australia or even in Brazil. Before eating, we went around the table and everyone said one thing they were grateful for. I scanned my very long mental list, and while there were many things I could have said, I ended up settling for “I’m thankful for changes, and for knowing that nothing ever stays the same”.
