of sunny days and my jane by design obsession







I sat in meditation
And came to realize
That part of being truly happy
Is trying to be exceptionally sweet natured
At all times and no matter what

It’s the secret thing
That promises new life and liberation to the soul
Undoubtedly, it gives you a wonderful sense of relief
From the daily details of life

And so i think of things that are happening in a conventional way
And that should not be happening
And the wake of days gone by
And what they mean to me
And as long as there is the great rhythm of life
And as long as there is the complexity of the passion of lives
I mean to find some other paths
To colour every moment of my day
I mean to find some ways
To become more true and more beautiful

wedding blues'




Hey guys! Here's what I wore to a wedding where one of my friends was a bridesmaid. This purple maxi turned out to be a perfect minimalistic piece to throw on an otherwise very warm day. I did my usual colour block’ threw on a cherished yellow blazer and since my hair was a candid mess’ i had to work a scarf. My bestie Millie’ was such a classy act...isn’t her outfit so Kim K’? envy much’
Later that evening ...i was chillin with my life partners(lol) mom n siz’ my siz was going for TPF so she was all dolled up n i took a few photos of her for my blog’ she’s wearing a colour block maxi’ n mum too’ likes a good dress just like her girls.

It is always good to know that no matter what. Your fam has got ur back. Long live fam’ n congrats Winy’ God came thru 'huh’




I'm wearing:

Yellow blazer
Purple maxi -
Gold clutch
Coloured headband

 







For you there is enduring passion
and salient presence in your inner rooms,
Realizing the joys of brides and grooms,
The deepest bonds that separate souls can fashion.
Years accumulate, the leaves turn ashen,
Forests stand naked as the winter looms.
On frigid mornings, on golden afternoons,
Underneath the roots love finds its ration.
Ravenous once, you now have long been sated,
Yearning still, but from a place called home,
Embracing what you have as what you are.
A choice was made, of course, but now seems fated,
Rendered as a fable writ in stone,
Signaled at your birth by some bright star.
