Lovely Nature

16 10 2012

I have been struggling with depression since we closed our shop last January. It is something that I never experienced before. Yes I feel blue here and there. But it was never like this. The sadness brought me to my knees. I couldn’t get out of bed in days and would cried all the time. It felt so foreign to be in a constant state of hopelessness. I knew I needed help. Ever since then I have been in talk therapy every week. The act of sharing really helps. Also knowing that I am not alone is such a gift. I’m learning to enjoy the simple things in life again. Taking photos of my surrounding has been therapeutic. It gives me a creative outlet since I am not ready to jump back into design. There are days when I’m back in that rabbit hole. Although this time around I am more conscious of the warning signs. I am slowly crawling back out into the light.




Bon Week-end!

Sweet Friend

8 10 2012

Such a wonderful surprise to received this exquisite work from the very talented florist designer Beka via Origin Flowers. Her autumn arrangement is heavenly. Thank you Beka for cheering me up. Life has been a bit harsh on both of us lately. Nothing like a great friendship and flowers to lift up my spirit. Thank you again sweet friend!


Hello Autumn!

2 10 2012

Wishing you a happy October everyone!  It feels like autumn today.  The light is changing and the air is much crisper.  I am in an autumn spirit.  I bought loads of apples from farmers’ market this week.  I’m addicted to juicing fresh veggies and fruits.  Nothing like fresh apple juice for breakfast.

Lovely Tuesday everyone.

Autumn Inspiration

28 09 2012

It feels a bit odd not to be designing for the next season.  No sample making, no photo shoot plan, no inspiration board, and no juggling act between designing and running a shop.  I’m a little lost at times.  But it helps to look at all the beautiful images for the autumn season.  At least I could still decorate my house and make dresses for myself.  It is one benefit of not having a shop.  I don’t have to please anyone else but myself.  Refreshing really…

Lovely images found via here.

Wishing you a brilliant weekend.

Lovely Detail

27 09 2012

I chopped off my hair last January and donated it to Cancer Society.  It was one of the most freeing experience.  I was so attached to my long hair.  After we closed the 23rd street shop.  I decided to physically let go of this attachment.  I am so happy with my shorter do now.  Less work and I feel a lot lighter.  I came across this image of sweet hair detail via Rodarte A/W 2012 Ready to Wear.  I might have to do something similar to my short hair.  It is lovely.
