ANNIEPOPSHOP cuffs (coming soon), ASOS cowl back dress

Although friends turn to each other during trying times, I often thought that it was easier to just smile than to explain why I'm unhappy.

Everybody is changing, finding their own place in the world and fighting their own battles so it's not that I don't like to open up to other people, I just don't want to spread any burden. I don't like asking for sympathy or support and when I unexpectedly receive it it turns me into a blubbering mess. Nobody wants to deal with a mess like that.

A few weeks ago when I was about to prepare myself for a night of relentless falling into a worry of thoughts, two friends came over and gave me this printed canvas that I now hang above my bed. I've slowly started to believe that

"Perhaps our eyes need to be washed with our tears once in a while so we can see life with a clear view again"

And whenever I look at this sign I'll think of the wonderful people I have in my life that can make me smile even when all I want to do is cry. That think I'm beautiful even when I'm a mess. Thank you.

...and in continuation of my recent lacquer adventures here is my attempt of a galaxy and some sort of rainbow.

  11. Oh wow, your galaxy nails came out great! I wish I had the patience to undergo a nail lacquer task like that. That is an inspiring sign and I think it's a beautiful reminder as to contemplating what's important in one's life. Good luck with everything that's happening, I hope you had a good CNY! xx

    Omg annieo :( I might not know you in person but people always have nice things to say about you and its so weird to hear that you're sad/unhappy. You're wonderful inside and out and it doesn't take a genius to work that out so never feel like you're anything less than fantastic <3
