For a while now I’ve been questioning many things regarding my career path and what route I want my blog to follow. Then yesterday I read something that gave me such peace.
To paraphrase the words, the author said that we cannot be good at everything but there is that one or two things that we are excellent at. This is that something (read your talent) that, is you pursue it and build on it, will give you immeasurable joy.

I added a white bag and charm bracelet to complete the outfit. Orange was my color of choice when it came to highlighting one color. I wore an orange headband and cherry red lipstick which appears orange in different light.
