A few days ago I met someone who had the most beautiful apartment with an incredible view. Not everyone gets to have something beautiful to look at every single day so to me this is a privilege, a potentially short-term gift. But then that person mentioned how they hardly ever get to 'see' the view because they're so busy. "Busy people don't have time to sit around and look at views". This made me sad because I feel this has nothing to do with schedules and everything to do with perspective. To own something so beautiful, to be the lucky one to have been blessed with something like this, to have enough resources to translate your hard work into something tangible - and then not being able to appreciate it feels like such a miss. Not stopping to value your life above disposables. All beautiful things in life - superficial ones like good views, deeper ones like capabilities and good relationships - deserve to be stopped for and appreciated every now and then (if not everyday). What then is the point of having anything at all if it's not for yourself.
New family member from Mood at Mall of the Emirates. I've always wanted an astronaut in the house, you could categorize this as a life goal. I have achieved a life goal. (He's actually a vase but I'm not going to use him like that....for now). Also, that's not his spot, I dethroned the Arch Angel for a bit to photograph this guy until we could figure his permanent spot out.
Some clothes hauling at River Island for a shoot coming up on the blog in a couple of weeks.
A kickass, hilarious round of Taboo with friends.
