When is our thirst for traveling becoming too much? When does it hinder local creatives, business, and economies?It’s important to spread awareness of local artisans and encourage holidaymakers to branch away from an area they find comfortable.
“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.”
It has always been more about slowly moving through places for me; about living, about allowing my senses to tune with the environment, open to indulge in experiences, to become part of local life and connect to a place. Slow. Intentional. And definitely thought provoking.
Oh, how beautiful it is, allowing herself to be lost. Allowing her creative mind to wander, seeking new experiences and inspiration - without a cause or reason. And maybe, maybe allowing her to find her final calling.
The thought of a home cemented to the earth has always made me shiver. I felt more like constantly living on the edge than settling down. Whatever it was, there has always been this desire to have a constantly changing horizon within me. To discover more and more new versions of myself.
Like all human beings, I come equipped with the natural impulse to pursue happiness, in times where each and every day we see streets, lives, faces, most of which are manifestly unhappy. It’s easy to believe that unhappiness lives in us as a whole, and that we have to pursue happiness in order to get it.
Life touches us all — painfully, indescribably – It’s chaotic. There will always be change, it will always be impermanent - because that’s what fosters growth, evolution. It doesn’t always go according to plan, and I wouldn’t want it to. It seems I have found comfort in that, like I’m thriving in that whirlwind of the unsettled life.
In a way, the ocean represents the unpredictable life. From the shore, watching the magnificent waves roll in is one thing. It's easy, effortless. Stepping into the ocean is another. And nothing can really prepare you for the felt experience of the ocean.
Navigating a career can be challenging as it is - especially when you're just starting out. The path to success can be a tricky and navigating one - one that can feel so far away. But everyone has to start somewhere, and when we do, we’re often young.
All that glitters is not gold, and us city people more than anyone will know some of the drawbacks that come with the tourism industry. As much as we complain, there might be some simple lifestyle changes we may not have thought of making ourselves.
Love is wonderful, worthwhile and most probably enriching, but it should never be a deadlock between the person and the life that you want – love just isn’t enough to make up for an entire lifetime of compromising your core values.
In a world where we’re connected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, constantly trying our hardest to excel in our career while believing we can have it all – family, friends, a love life and the career, those different aspects of our lives overlap – a fine, blurred line we cannot ignore.
'Most ambitious people believe success to be at its peak at times when being on 24/7, tirelessly networking one's way to the top. But what if you started swimming against the current and stopped all that networking?
Another manic Fashion Week (More like weekend to be fair) came to an end a few days back. And as the fashion crowd is heading to Milan, I wrapped up my weekend with Paul Costelloe's AW18 show on Monday, before heading back to my normal routine.
London Fashion Week is each and every time again a great source of inspiration based on its incredible, uber-stylish and confident fashion crowd strolling around Westminster. It makes me not only want to see shows, but get a glance at what others are wearing. As we say in this industry, trends come from the streets, not the runway.
Wow, I would've never believed I'd at some point be such a fan of kitten heeled sock boots. They've been carrying me around the city all day long without giving me the slightest feeling of pain or blisters. So hey sock boots, this shoutout goes out to you!
