{A few much needed fashion books}

The past few days feel like they were years and years ago. With the much anticipated summer holiday inching closer with every sunrise, it’s hard to continue focusing on anything school-related.  Despite the feeling that I’ve already finished my schooling, and the irresistible urge to ignore my homework, I know that I need to continue my studies for the next few weeks. Even so, I’m sure it will be impossible to follow through. On the bright side, this week has  gotten off to an excellent start. My Sunday was spent doing god knows what (I’ve already forgotten…) Yesterday I got out of school to visit the city, then gave a lesson, and went to a late band rehearsal. Today I was lucky enough to enjoy a much needed day off with close friends in the heart of Chicago. It was spent taking the train with some of the most incredible girls in the world, enjoying big breakfasts, walking around the “touristy” parts of the windy city, taking elevators, and thinking about things over a hot cup of tea. Before turning in and facing tomorrow, I thought I’d spend a bit of time sharing a few things that bring smiles to my face.

This morning a close friend discussed many of her issues with me and when she finished and I had given her a bit of advice, she told me she wished I would talk about my worries a little more often. For many years now, I’ve had a lot of trouble talking about the way I feel. Despite my hardest efforts, I constantly find myself pausing continuously or just avoiding the subject all together (it’s even pretty challenging to write this post!). (more…)

{A rather worn-out fence near my house}

Though my morning didn’t start out as well as it could have, the rest of the day is slowly getting better. I had time for sweet breakfast, practiced a lot of flute, and had lunch with a few close friends. Hopefully a good night’s sleep, long hot shower, and fresh cookies changes my feeling of being both trapped and fenced off from the things I love. How do you combat worries?

Though troublesome things do pass with time, that doesn’t mean they never return. Despite the calm day, I’ve found myself constantly worrying about things that have long since happened. I think it has a lot to do with the solitude of my home, how sick I’ve been getting, and my little connection to family and friends. Nonetheless, I plan on combating my fears and worries with strong mint tea, studying, midday coffee with friends, cuddle sessions with Gizmo (my cat named Dog), and good music. This week, I’m partial to A Fine Frenzy’s The Beacon. Yet again her soothing voice, beautiful lyrics, and incredible melody impress me.

I can’t conceive of living without you,

With the days slowly lengthening and the weather slowly (yet surely) increasing, it’s hard to let worries hold you back from enjoying all that the beginning of March has to offer. Though I rarely do anything remotely exciting on Fridays (besides going to very exciting school) today I decided I would abandon my lame ways, enjoy some dinner with a few friends and go to a small party.  I also discovered another incredible store on Etsy. AmorDress sells a variety of stunning items that are more than lust-worthy. More than anything right now, I want to be holding one (if not all) of these incredible items in my hands. Despite their 15% off Valentines Day sale, I’m still beyond broke. Hopefully all those auditions somehow pay off. Oh, and here are some of my favorite pieces. Happy Friday!

Sometimes it’s easy to feel as if life keeps on punching you in the face, and though it’s discouraging, it helps teach us to get back on our feet again. It’s definitely easier said than done, but with a little effort, a long rant to your sister, crazy good music, and a lot of chocolate and milk, you begin to notice that you can feel a bit better no matter the circumstances. Sometimes, it also helps to get your mind off of everything. That’s when I discovered River of Romansk; an adorable, ethereal shop on Etsy. At the moment, I’m in love with their stunning, delicate, romantic clothing, but seeing as I’ve completely run out of money (thank you, plane tickets!) it’s gonna be a long few months of window shopping for me! Here are my favorite pieces.
