September Favourites

Hi loves,
September was a spectacular month for me. Realising what I want out of my career, and heading towards the right direction in my life, I felt unstoppable. I felt happy again. I lost my job of over two years in July and was on an instant downward spiral of uncertainty and sadness. I didn't know what I wanted, what I was doing and where I was going. But now, I feel so much more optimistic about my future and I can tell that the positivity is shining within what I'm doing everyday.
To top off a great month, my boyfriend of ten years and father of my only son finally proposed to me, asking me to marry him. Everyday I literally feel like I'm on a cloud because of how happy I am these days. I finally realised that happiness is a feeling, not a destination, and I'm okay with that. As Julian Baker in One Tree Hill said to Brooke Davis, "Happiness is not a destination. It is a mood, it is not permanent. It comes and goes and if people thought that way then maybe people would find happiness more often." And I can positively say I have found happiness so much more lately. In big things, in little things, in every aspect of my life.

So without further ado, here are a few things that made me happy throughout September.
I hope you all find inner peace and happiness someday.



Heart Style Grace

Hi loves,
Long time no outfits. It feels so incredibly great to be back with styling outfits, shooting them and then editing. Although I did notice that I'm also back to being super awkward in front of the camera, and that's something I need to work towards again, but I'm just glad to be back to doing something I actually really enjoy.

Not only is it fun to play around in my closet and style outfits, but my love for photography comes peeking through as I go through every photo. In a way, I instantly feel so much better about myself. Personally, I think it's so important to stay connected to the things you love. They're the things that keep you motivated and inspired.

I mean, every woman goes through a period in their lives where their confidence and self esteem can sink down to their lowest. I have to be honest, my low points were at their peak most recently and it took a lot of self motivation and, in the wise words of Kylie Jenner, realising things and figuring things out to get me where I am today. Nobody's perfect, so I'm not admitting that I've totally got everything down and perfected, but I'm in the process of getting there, and it feels amazing to be happy with and within myself.

Styling outfits and photographing them always gave a little boost to my self confidence, so I'm really glad I'm re-connecting with my love for fashion. It's been a long time since the last time I appreciated styling this much. Hoping for so many more consistent outfit posts.

Hi loves,
