Not too late for New Year resolutions, is it?

Excuse me, but it's 2018 already? What are we, speed-racing through life?? Wasn't it just last month that we were out partying going to bed at 11pm on New Year's Eve and resolving to make 2017 less of a complete waste than 2016? (Note to self: make less abstract resolutions next time.) ((Have to say,… Continue reading Not too late for New Year resolutions, is it?

2017, here we go

This period of time when one year ends and the next one begins is a pretty strange one: it makes us nostalgic and retrospective, but it gives us slightly clearer vision and hope for better things to come. I know what I plan to do in 2017. What are some of your #NewYearResolutions?

hello, 2016

Funny how quickly years just pass once you start working. Ever since I started working in the fashion e-commerce industry, time has been measured in sales campaigns, and season by season, festival by festival, we reached the end of 2015. But all things considered, 2015 has been pretty kind to me. 2015 was the year… Continue reading hello, 2016

state of mind for 2015

So here it is. We've made it over to the other side. 2015. How should it be any different from 2014? 2014 was a mess of a year, rife with natural and man-made disasters, and social turbulence, tragic accidents ... Ugh, good riddance to 2014. This time, I don't want to pin too much hope… Continue reading state of mind for 2015

Bring on 2014!

The quote above is from author Margaret Peterson Haddix's German ski instructor, Horst, when she was learning how to ski. And it seems so simple but true. This shall be my mantra  for 2014. Now I just need to decide where I'm looking. And how are we on the New Year's goals front? I'm still… Continue reading Bring on 2014!

less sulking, more smiling!

Something from Debbie Millman to start off this post: If you imagine less, less will be what you undoubtedly deserve. Do what you love, and don’t stop until you get what you love. Work as hard as you can, imagine immensities, don’t compromise, and don’t waste time. Start now. Not 20 years from now, not two… Continue reading less sulking, more smiling!

on fresh slates and pretty horses

It feels like forever since I last spent a day with my dad. Ever since he got transferred over to Westgate Mall, we've been seeing less of each other, and most of our conversations take place over the phone or via Whatsapp. But he finally had Sunday off, and we were determined to make good… Continue reading on fresh slates and pretty horses
