The Struggle is Real

July 16, 2015

Hello lovely reader/s!

I'm so happy that the good weather is back and i can now finally post some ootd! 
Okay,scratch that! Although we actually suffered from harsh weather here in our country for almost two weeks, the real reason why i haven't been posting ootd was because i don't have someone to take my photos *insert sad face*, and it results to myself being couch potato person all day everyday. Yes, im pretty much in a bad shape right now in my life. I can't even believe that i'd be in this situation ever, im so stressed about life, to being unemployed, to having no motivation. I feel like a wasted space sometimes ( plays Firework by Katy Perry in the background).

I tried being productive, but i just can't bring myself into being the person i was once before. Im just so tired about life in general. Not that im giving up or whatever, but i just can't find the old me in myself anymore, she's gone for good(?) Im not "that" strong girl anymore whom i know very very well, whom despite having disabilities can still find the light and stands back up even falling many many times(literally!). I think i fell down down down and down into what i call the abyss of nothingness. charr!
Im disappointed in myself too, how can a person who started her journey limping, that along the way finds her rhythm to dance, finds her strength to face the world but ends up to fuck up the whole thing. Gawwwd, the struggle is real people!

Maybe a reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow
And when it's time you'll know
- Fireworks by Katy Perry

Sometimes life don't go the way you planned
And we all have days when we just don't understand
Searching for meaning, it's not always easy
But your story's not over, it's still being told
Your sunrise is coming brighter than gold
-Still that Girl by Britt Nicole

On a lighter side, let's talk about my outfit.

Its not too long ago since i got fascinated by preppy styled outfits. So today, here's to another preppy outfit! 
I bought this Long Sleeve Chiffon Blouse and Wine Red Pleated Flare Skirt from Shein.com because i know they'd be essesntials if want to pull a preppy look. But the black bowknot was from Dresslink.com :)

I made a review about them here.

  7. The struggle is too real. I've been such a junk food addict lately and I keep saying I'll stop but I won't. I can force myself to work out, but I can't force myself not to reach for the chocolate. The result is absolute bloating and I need my old self back. I just want to feel healthy.

  10. You ARE a strong girl, be very sure of that! You shared this story with us and that makes you strong. Unemployed because you are trying to find the way you really like, so take your time. Motivation will come - it's normal to feel this way after one graduates. So you will see. all will be well. It also happened to me before, when I graduated! As for couch potato, well, start dancing or walking a bit, so that you feel more energetic. It really helps, believe me! And you look gorgeous, I love burgundy and the kind of little tie you added to the outfit! So sweet!

  20. Poor sweetie! I know the feeling you have, at least a little. I have been in the place of unemployment and it felt so embarrasing no matter what anyone told me. I tried for months to find a job taking every temp job I could find until finally a temp job became a real one and I have now been there 12 years. It will happen for you, but along the way if you feel sad it is ok. I just hope you are not mean to yourself. I like you quite a bit and I always wish the best for you. If you were here you would be hugged at this point :)

    As for the outfit, so cool and sweet! Your little red shoes are so fun and the bag is pretty. And, as I told you on IG, I love tights so I was excited to see you in them! It was certainly worth the wait :) Your legs are so gorgeous and sexy in them, dear!!! I vote for shorter skirts or seated poses to better show them off but believe me these shots worked wonderfully as they are ;) You are so beautiful, dear, and I thank you for these great shots! XOXO

  21. Aw, Sarah, I'm sending all the strength I have virtually through the internet to you and sending you a huge huge virtual hug. Things will get better, don't you worry! I've gone through severe versions of this ennui and it ate me up like no other, but as long as you find that little spark to fuel your flame again, everything will be just fine. Cheers and hugs all around and I am genuinely wishing that you'll be able to get back up on your feet and find the strength that I know is lurking somewhere inside you. <3

    Loving the outfit, by the way! The colour is too gorgeous!

  25. Funny how the thing you wrote has nothing to do with the photos haha! But i really do love your outfit!! :)
    It's sad to see your life like that, I'm kind of in the same position too :( ... I think you just need time to yourself to just relax and then sooner or later you will get back into the groove of things :)
