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!

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.

Autumn is here

25 09 2012

The air is getting much cooler here in Portland. Although we are pretty lucky with some blue sky. Getting ready for autumn season. Pulling out my sweaters and tights. I’m also enjoying watching the leaves turning into vibrant colours.




Always look forward to have cozy coffees and teas with my dear friends under the autumn sky.

Enjoy your Tuesday everyone!

New Chapter

24 09 2012

As my dear friend Sarah reminded me that I’m on sabbatical from fashion. I have learned that I cherish my new found freedom. I have been enjoying reading books, taking photos, cooking, being on holiday and spending more time with my friends. I am still Looking for work of course. But in the mean time I treasure this period of my life. I have been volunteering at the art museum. I realised that I have missed doing volunteering work. It is such a gift to be able to be apart of this lovely community. I adore my time at the museum. Here are some pics from my new chapter.
