It’s a bad day, not a bad life.

Peacocks blouse and purse, New Look skirt, necklace and shoes.


It’s been more than two weeks since I last blogged and it’s kind of crazy how much has happened over that period of time. Let’s just say that I’m in a better place now than I was in the past few weeks. Relationships are just so difficult sometimes, I’m often torn between the choice to love myself more and spare myself of sadness, anger, heart break and disappointment, or pick myself up again, take another chance, choose to believe in love and find some hope somewhere, even when it feels non-existent.

I actually end up googling advice for interracial relationships haha but I know that any relationship requires effort from both sides. It survives on the ability to trust and depend on each against all odds. Maybe I’m just in a relationship with the wrong person.

I really don’t know where all of this is going to lead us, but I know I have amazingly supportive friends to back me up, wipe away my tears and remind me of how strong I can be. I just want happiness at the end of it, nothing else is as important.


I think in some cases, you lose some to win some. While my love life seems to be falling downhill, my career has come to an unbelievable phase. I got the job 🙂 I am now a fashion blogger and copywriter at Splash. I’m still pinching myself with disbelief because this is something I’ve dreamed of for so long, I honestly never thought it would happen. It feels beyond amazing and it just validates the fact that if you go after your dream and work hard enough, it will come to you. It validates the fact that bloggers, blogging, normal people like you and me, matter. Just the thought that I’m writing about fashion for a living now makes me a little giddy <3


I’m learning to be independent again, so until I find a tripod or a friend who’s free to take pictures, I might not blog as often as I used to. But stay with me, my blog is one of the best things in my life and I’m never giving up on it.


Lots of love and hugs,

    I am so proud of you!  How exciting career wise!  Wish I could see that magazine!  As for the love life, it is work, but if it becomes too difficult, it wasn't meant to be.  The right one is there somewhere!  Big hugs! 
    P.S.  You put together the cutest outfits.  I can't pick a favorite…well, maybe the purse, or is it the shoes?

  • tres romantique,tres reussi ! ;O)

  • I love that skirt!!!! and that blouse goes PERFECT with it. That purse is also VERY cute!!

  • Rikkchen

    You look amazing- glowing even. Fantastic colours, fit and setting too! I know how difficult relationships can be, but hang in there and figure out just what you're willing to sacrifice for that other person. Whatever is meant to be, will happen… I'm so proud of you for being strong and focusing on the positive things. Like your new job! How amazing is that? And so well deserved. You're amazing, always. 

    xoxo Rikke

    Gorgeous pics! I love the color of your skirt 🙂

  • i am so excited for your new job!  that is a dream come true!!!  so i will live vicariously through you if that is okay!!!

  • Lin Cabrales


    First of all, congratulations on the new job!!You definitely
    deserve it!  Secondly, this outfit is
    perfect.  I especially love the color of
    the skirt, the adorable shoes and the way everything is so soft and feminine 🙂

    Keep your head up, and don’t forget that sometimes it’s okay
    to be ‘selfish’  and do what you think is
    best for yourself. No one would think any less of you and if that person really
    truly cares about you they will realize that and let you find your happiness
    with or maybe without them…

    Hope that makes sense and I wish you all the best LuAnne.
