Some of my favorite things to do lately are getting out of the house and exploring (solo or with friends), having meaningful conversations with people who actually listen, blogging and photography(of course), listening to audiobooks(I would rather read a book but I love to do this on my commute to work) and reading poetry (this is new, I hated poetry back in high school haha). I hate to let negativity wear me down, I convince myself on a daily basis that failure is meant to make us stronger and that I am who I am, where I am at the right time. It’s easy for people to look and judge you without knowing or understanding what you are going through, people can be hurtful and discouraging at times. I have made it upon myself to surround myself with those I truly love in hard times, and remember that I am the only one who can bring myself up, I have to be there for myself always and thats ok.
Failure can tear us down and make us feel like we have no value in this world, but it is meant to give us value by testing our ability to do things. Despite the many failures I have been dealing with this couple months, I have found strength in talking to the right people…I have also made the mistake of confiding in the wrong people, who utterly bruised my ego and made me feel worse than before. We all at some point go through times like this when we are full of doubts about our capabilities and value, remember this is normal and perfectly ok, you will get through it and in happy times you’ll have a story to tell 🙂 happy monday friends!

It’s been a busy week and my little worry-filled head needed a break today. It was a day full of coincidences..
first we went to brunch at Smoke and Cedar , which is on a golf course and right in front of me on the putty green was my old communications class teacher practicing his “swings”. I didn’t say hi if you’re wondering, because I would’ve had to duck flying golf balls to get to him and I figure teachers go through so many students to remember each one and he would be forced to pretend he remembered me.
Later on, we went to see the movie ex-machina (pretty good), then we came across this car parked right in front of this historic barn at the park, what a great coincidence!, I initially thought it was a prop for some photographer of sorts, but nobody was there and of course I had to pull out my camera haha.. I think the owner just wanted to show off this coolness and I responded very well to this.
Ian decided to let me know that I wasn’t allowed to jump in or lean on the car….duh.. haha
Nevertheless, it was fun taking outfit pics today

Can you guys believe it’s the end of the week already, and the beginning of a new week for others? Man! time is going to fast. I hope you guys had a great week, I was really good about working out all of last week, and I hope things stay that way.
Today am wearing one of this winter’s favorite of mine. I’ve worn it so much just because it’s an easy and comfortable outfit (mostly without the belt). I love peter-pan collars, so cute and in cold weather there’s no need for scarfs.
On other news, I have done 2 hikes up the mountains in one week! Can life get any better than this haha. I literally want to hike all over Washington, there is so much natural beauty to be explored, and there’s nothing better than being out in the mountains after a long work week, even though one of my patient thinks I torture myself doing this, he asked me yesterday if my back was hurting from all the hiking haha
Have a lovely end of the weekend friends, feel free to comment if you like my outfit 🙂
I have been enjoying reading other blogs and seeing everyone’s take on Valentine’s day and their outfits…so fun
This year for valentines I will be wearing a dress I bought last year from dailylook for a different “dress-up occasion”, it is one of my favorite dresses in terms of quality and style. Since February is somewhat cold here (esp at night) and I hate wearing heavy coats on a night out, this dress will be perfect because it covers me up and still makes me look hot 😍
