Life: A Bit Sweeter

As I type this I am off to enjoy a very long weekend away for my birthday, which has already started off quite well! Although, I will have to do a couple check-ins for work it will be a massive relief from the typical busy lifestyle of a fashionista.

With just over the past year I have learnt so much and continue to evolve and progress with each day passing! So, here is a throwback style outfit and a few wonderful quotes of wisdom, life lessons, and happiness that I wanted to share ...

See you next week lovelies!
"If we judge others, it is because we are judging something in ourselves of which we are unaware."     -John A. Sandford


"The great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving."  -Oliver Wendell Holmes 
 
"I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear."  -Martin Luther King, Jr.

 (Source)

"Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver."  -Barbara De Angelis 

 
"Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions."  -Dalai Lama

   
"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."  -Nelson Mandela


Special shout out to Nelson Mandela: "Happy Birthday!"
