It’s a little bit last minute but today I present to you the “triple F’s”, my FFF (favorite fashion finds) at The Secret Affair, July. This rounds theme was “Summertime Sadness”, and it was all about finding your inner bohemian spirit. So, get ready and grab your hippie gear because we are venturing off to new realms of summery, bohemian goodness ♥

It’s great to “officially” be back from my (much needed) hiatus. For those who have been wondering what I have been upto and to which road the hands of faith have pushed me, it’s a long story so make yourself a cup of your favorite tea or any other soothing drink and keep on reading.
I took a hiatus with the intention of properly finishing my schoolwork for the last semester which, fortunately, did work out well. I passed my schoolyear and that was honestly the most surprising and uplifting news I have received so far this year. However, I did not immediately return to the grid and its activities such as blogging and vlogging straight after hearing this wonderful news. Instead, I extended my hiatus for just a little bit longer but I am honestly so glad I did. I celebrated the last few days by hanging out with the friends I haven’t spoken to in months and doing all kinds of things that I haven’t or couldn’t do because of school or my amplified introversion due to all of the stress and heartache caused by school and other aspects of my life then. Doing the things that put a smile on my face and make what seems like the weight of the world that I carry on my shoulders feel like a tiny feather, blown away by a summer breeze, make life look slightly more rosy and I needed that. I needed reassurance. Perhaps passing my schoolyear was a reminder that miracles do excist which is a belief I had given up quite a while ago.
When the colors of my sky shifted to grey, I thought that was its new permanent state. I went through my days waiting to go back to sleep. What started as a heartache escalated to pain which further on led to feeling nothing, augmented by the torment of numbness. That nothingness made me reach a point at which I woke up everyday thinking “what’s the point?”. Fortunately, I was (and am) too cowardly, or perhaps too brave, to actually harm myself. I’m glad I did not participate in what now seems as foolery because since then I have met people who have restored my faith and hope. They have taken away that numbness and filled my nothingness with love and warmth. Some of these people might be reading this right now. Know that I will always be so incredibly grateful that you are part of a new life in which I intend to be a better person, towards the rest of the world but also towards myself.
There is so much more to tell but I should probably shower and get dressed. I am going to see Finding Dory with an old friend from high school today. The same friend who was dating the guy I used to like, but instead of feeling envy, I was happy for her. And the same friend whose 16th birthday was such a memorable and amazing event which I hope to never forget. It’s funny how life decided to surround me with these people I thought I had lost. It reminds me of what makes life worth living for, the people who may or may not be a part of your everyday life but are always a part of your heart, and you a part of theirs ♥

I don’t need them anymore
You can throw them out or keep them in your mason jars
I’ve come home”
