“I fly, I crawl, I weep, I laugh, I swim, I grow, I fall, I need, I want, I follow, I break, I sink, I love, I exist.” -Anaïs Niin
I am 30 years old, technically homeless, and feeling astonishingly OK about the whole thing. I can either obsess about what I feel I should be doing (which is often times unattainable or unquestionably not what I want right now), or just go with the flow and do what feels right.
Smoking is an activity that I personally enjoy, oh so very much -- and I know I am not alone when it comes to this. But smoking cigarettes is frowned upon these days (for good reason) and most of the people I spend time with don't like being around it. C'est la vie. Ladies and gentlemen, I have found the solution… Say "hello" to JUUL -- a smart, simple, intensely satisfying vapor alternative designed for adult smokers that isn't at all obtrusive, by any means, as far as "e-cigs" go - I smell a lot [...]
Life doesn't have to match. We don't have to follow all the rules. Life doesn't have to be black and white, black or white, or any other color, for that matter. Life is just life. We don't have to define or categorize it. In fact, I don't think we should --trying to make sense of the unknown will only drive more confusion. This world we live in is confusing enough. Perhaps it's more logical to embrace what baffles us instead of running away all the time, turning a blind eye. I want to stop running away. I [...]
For the bold ones, the mavericks, and those who march to the beat of their own drum. We weren't built for subtlety, and we’ll leave this world a little different than it was when we got here — our stiletto footprint set in stone. We gracefully walk the tightrope of life like acrobats, and even when the strongest winds try and blow us off course, we keep our balance. We’re the daydreamers whose minds are constantly running, training for a race we’re destined to win. Known for our ambition, we’ll beat the odds. When told there’s something [...]
As a hopeless romantic, traveler and lover of light, beautiful fragrances, I immediately fell for Fictions, and the stunning products this one-of-a-kind collection has to offer. Fictions, publishers of fine perfume, partners with remarkable creatives to conjure the scent and story of a woman in LOVE. Intriguing, collectible and eminently wearable, the fragrance brand's editions are set in the iconic cities of London, Paris, Los Angeles, Sydney and its latest edition, Istanbul. Not only did I connect with Fictions for their classic-yet-unique fragrances, but all the cities (Istanbul aside) are places where I have either lived, been in love, [...]
"She has been through hell, so believe me when I say, fear her when she looks into a fire and smiles." -E. Corona We all face struggle and hardships, and handle things differently. People hurt in varying ways and my personal opinion is there is no right or wrong way to feel. Sometimes we cry and crumble, genuinely believing we won't be able to put the broken pieces back together the way they once were. I used to feel this way all the time. Then I realized I could view a difficult situation as an opportunity to rebuild a [...]
