"The culture doesn’t encourage you to think about such things until you’re about to die. We’re so wrapped up with egotistical things, career, family. having enough money, meeting the mortgage, getting a new car, fixing the radiator when it breaks - we’re involved in trillions of little acts just to keep going. So we don’t get into the habit of standing back and looking at our lives and saying, is this all? Is this all I want? Is there something missing?" -Morrie Schwartz
I've finally gotten around to taking pictures out here in Florida. I've been spending most of my time really taking in all of what I took for granted before I moved to New York. Being able to lay in bed with no police sirens, no honking, no voices, just silence. The sun shines brighter, the air smells cleaner. I missed nature. I missed the smell of freshly cut grass, I missed the sound of sprinklers. I'm grateful to get this little time away from the city, from my life out there. It's pretty insane how attached I became to my phone. I was finally able to set it down and enjoy moments with friends and family. On another note, I wore this Forever 21 dress to the Socialyte Gala right before I left NY where I won an award for 'Most Original Voice'. Wine is definitely going to be my go to color for Fall. I love low cut bodycon dresses. The nude heels plays well off the dress. Can we discuss these rings? They're a perfect little reminder to love yourself. I'm off to watch the 2013 Emmy's!
Wearing: Forever 21 backless bodycon dress, Forever 21 nude ankle strap pump, F21 rings
