Been Trying Hard Not To Get Into Trouble; But I've Got A War In My Mind


I'm tired of feeling like I'm f*cking crazy 
I'm tired of driving 'til I see stars in my eyes 
I look up to hear myself saying, 
"Baby, too much I strive, I just ride." 


For those of you who can't tell LDR is stuck in my head. I really can't get over her and her looks! I will admit that at first I rode the boat of general consensus on the fact that her looks were the results of botched plastic surgery jobs.
But the more I stare at her, the more natural it seems. Plus the fact that she has the ability to emote so well during performances dismisses the whole fake looks things for me. 


Apart from her 'controversial' face, the song ride has really resonated with me this week. 
I don't think that this is the right thing to say, or maybe I don't want to admit that I feel a little bit lost.
With school almost coming to it's end and the  number of assignments being ramped up I suddenly feel amazingly overwhelmed, irritated and pathetic all at once!


On one hand I feel that all of the hard work is worth it BUT I wonder if maybe I should try hard and just aim for a simple life.
I also encounter this dilemma when I am getting dressed. 
Is more less
OR
Is less more?
Most fashion looks tend to be driven towards implicit and explicit opulence it is rare to see simplicity; let alone dress with simplicity. 






These images were taken by my good friend Paulina who has her own photography blog.
For me photography is very inspiring, the difference between a good image and a STELLAR image is of course the photographer.
They capture the moment as they see it, but more often than not as they want you to see it. 
I feel that Paulina captures me amazingly. 
All of the photographers that I have had the pleasure of working with so far are good. However I feel that Paulina consistently captures and exposes me.
The best pictures show you something about their subjects. 


I urge you all to take a listen! Maybe it's just me and my "I've taken too many things on so now I feel depressed" BUT I think that we can all relate to some if not all of the lyrics in this song.

Time Doesn't Exist; Only Clocks Do


I've never owned a jumpsuit,
I tell you no untruths, it's just that being more long limbed than most EVERYTHING tends to look inappropriately short. 
Apart from not wanting to get arrested for indecent exposure, I have to admit I don't like short items of clothing.
There is something about the skin exposure that could go wrong, coupled with sitting right on surfaces that rubs me the wrong way. 
When I saw this beauty I bought it without a second thought.
It wasn't just a bout of consumerism, but as you can not see this baby has pockets.
Pockets SOOO deep that I can chuck a paperback in them (not that I've actually tried to....)



Jumpsuit - Simons
Blazer - Vintage
Boots - Barefoot Tess



Jumpsuit phobia aside.
Taking these pictures was the first time we have take a space hostage.
Even though it was ten o'clock at night people still use elevators, so we timed the crowds and BAM this car was ours for a while.
This ride consisted of us frantically jamming the close door button, praying people wanted to take the stairs (New Years Resolution anyone?) and wondering if there was a camera in this elevator.




This is also a work outfit! Hence my half closed eye balls, and dark circles.
There are so many more work outfit pictures that I want to put up and recreate.
Soon.
