Fresh White

May 12 2014
There is no greater feeling in this world than that of being happy and content with who you are. Flaws and all.
Especially in a world where society is addicted to telling you what and how you should think, feel and live your life. I’m just happy to have reached a point in mine where I completely love the person I have become, because yes, I fought to become her.
I’ve learnt that nobody gives you happiness, you have to take it. 
The moment you realise this, trust me, it makes room for so many incredible things to happen.
I shot these photos yesterday with my friend Dalia (who is an amazing photographer!!!). We were cracking jokes and laughing all the way through! It’s wonderful to be surrounded by people that share similar values and zeal for life as you do. Beautiful conversations with beautiful minds. I live for this! 
Fresh White. Jeans paired with an oversized shirt, tied into a knot, and pulled together with nude and gold accessories. One of my things.

    It came with a nice quality shawl too (same material as the dress). The only issue for me was the tulle underneath is not covered by a lining so I took the scissors and chopped it right off immediately.
