Look at me!

One tends to feel old when there are #trends you are not aware of. Especially when you go shopping and feel appalled by certain new fashion and styles of clothing. On a more positive note, I have trying to be open to these new trends. I may not include the word bae and fml in my vocabulary but fashion is always fun. Especially with instagramming and the whole #ootd deal.

Yes. I know. I am a few years late.

The past few years, say 5-7 of them have been a jumble of graduating, losing a 8 year love, surviving the economic crisis and attempting to get up while having fallen. Fallen pretty hard mind you. The bruised beat up kind of fallen.

I have healed a lot over the past few years thanks to my ex. Somehow I learned to laugh and love once again and was able to look ahead instead of staring at darkness. Even though I am now single yet again, I have retained the positivity that came again into my life. And let me tell you something, for the first time in my life I am having a lot of fun being single!

I am enjoying my handmade business, my lovely little balcony garden, my amazing friends and I have found this blog/instagram-ing outlet to share my obsessions. It is fun. I enjoy it.

I have been dabbling oh-so-slightly into the ootd thing. I must confess, I am shy with posting selfies and pictures of myself on Facebook and Instagram. No, it is not necessary to post a daily customary selfie online. But, I want to have fun marketing my jewelry and reaching out to the selfie generation. I am learning how fun it is to assemble outfits that go with my jewelry or how my jewelry can compliment certain outfits.

I have barely started trying this out and I hesitantly share with you a few photos of my outfit of the day. I am no model nor am I confident enough but well I bare my soul outfits to you. I am also a plus size 2x which helps make me feel shy. But I am learning self love here. :)
