Things don’t always go our way. That’s a fact. Even if you work hard on something (complete with sweat and tears), there’s still that slightest bit of chance that your outcome could go haywire. There’s nothing foolproof in this world, and the sooner you take a firm grasp of that truth, the easier it is for you and for everyone. Some things can’t be controlled. Take me for example, for every decision I make, I always year for my desired outcome and half the time, things hardly ever unfurl the way I want them to. Some for the better, maybe, and some, I’ve learned to accept for the lack of options (to save me from the heartache, at least).
Yet, no one ever gets used to the feeling of disappointment. You get over them, but you don’t ever get used to them.
As cliche as it may sound, when life throws you lemons, you have to make lemonades. That’s how you cope. You make the best out of a situation. I’ve always known as a child that I wasn’t in control of the universe–I wish I was of course, but I knew I wasn’t (thank God for having half the brains back then). I did learn early on to manipulate certain outcomes to be favorable towards me (it’s a practiced skill) but that’s as far as I got. To be fair, I think I’ve always been able to turn a bad situation around and I am pretty lucky in that respect.
Maybe I’m just being pessimistic now. I’m usually the opposite but as you get older, you become more pragmatic. It’s once in a blue moon anyway, so allow me to indulge.
Anyway, this was an outfit I wore to work recently. Like I said, I have this special gift to transition from any outfit with ease. Some call it versatility, I simply call it a “product of practice.” Yes, I’m sorry for being a tad bit too straightforward but I’m not in the mood to play the modesty card. Dressing up to me, is really just observing, learning, applying, and practice–I’m sure all of you will agree. The tip is simply to “try”–there is no right or wrong answers in fashion anyway. Here are some more photos:
I got these goodies from the mail recently. They’re a box of Yoku Moku wafer cigar. I’m not quite sure where there’s from so I was initially hesitant to try but then again, they look good and perfect, in tightly sealed non-perishable packaging. Whoever sent this to me, please give me a holler! Under normal circumstances, I wouldn’t really eat anything whose origins I’m not quite sure of but the individually wrapped packaging pretty much assured me.
All else, we have to be a slight bit wary. I just think that bloggers in general should be careful about where they get their goods especially when they don’t know where it’s form and it looks tampered/faked. You’ll never know what’s in there! Just a piece of advice, of course.
For my blog give away (yes, it’s still October 19), I’m giving away this lovely sling back from Love Eye Candy. They sent me their lovely Katie bag a few weeks ago and I knew it was the most functional, ergonomic, and utilitarian option in their whole collection, which is what they’re known for:
Of course, I’m still about to release an outfit using the bag but I am giving away the Katie in Red & Navy Blue. Dont let the no non-sense style fool you, it’s made out of leather and the color is rich enough and bold enough for it to pop. See how I’ll style it in the next few weeks.
