Tommy Hilfiger Resort collection 2017

Tommy Hilfiger, a multinational high end fashion brand which is highly respected for its wearable designs and beautiful prints. Founded around 31 years ago in 1985 in New York by Tommy Hilfiger himself. It’s no surprise that the latest collection is already a success after recently being launched.

I absolutely love the prints used to create a luxurious casual look with a mix of textures such as lace in some looks which fascinates me the most. The collection almost looks like a mixture of sports luxe to flirty country and to even boss lady style. As you’ve already guessed the usual use of the Tommy Hilfiger logo colours still remain as a trademark look in some of the outfits.

Overall, I can’t wait to see how people play with this collection net year.Judge for yourself bellow:

Which outfit is your favourite?

I’ve tried my best.
I’ve done everything that I can for you
but you still don’t see me.
Why is that,

I’m I not good enough
An alien for you to gawk at
A prisoner of your deadly stare

Is it okay for me to be locked up in your venomous smile?
Release me from the hole that is unrequited love
So you can make it clear to me.

Don’t avoid me.

Don’t avoid this…
…Now

10 Steps to a healthier mind

It takes time to heal a mind. To grow a mind. Take the time to build your healthy mind.

1. Smile more

The act of smiling can help lift not just your spirits but of those around you-the more you do it the easier it will become. Trust me – smiling to yourself can feel weird at first and awkward especially when you aren’t feeling yourself. However,I have found that faking a smile once in a while can actually make you a happier person. This does not mean that you should pretend that your problems do not exist and use the smile as a mask – accepting issues and situation then figuring out how to solve them with a smile is very different from hiding.

2. Adopt a growth mind-set
You’ve probably heard it a million times but however it is true. Adopting a growth mind-set could be the start of your new journey as a better you. Carol S.Dweck stated that “In a growth mind-set students understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. They don’t necessarily think everyone’s the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it.” This can be applied outside school, of course.

Welcome to my story

.We are all the main characters of our own story.

Sometimes it is easy to feel as if you are just playing a supportive role in life. You feel as if the people around you live a more exciting life – they are always in the spotlight while you hide in the shadows. You hide in the shadows of your friends. You hide in the shadows of your family.

To you , you do not matter, but to someone else you are a precious pearl- their main character. You probably haven’t met this person yet. If that is the case then you should start living for yourself. All main characters in fairy tales could not have possibly existed without their supporting characters. Would there have been a Little red ridding hood without an evil wolf- I think not. The evil wolf had a purpose and so do we all.

Each of us have a purpose in life and it is up to us to find and alter it.

Welcome to my story.

Where I make up the plot.

Where I decide who my supporting leads are.

Where I begin to live.

Poetry Thursday: Black Flowers

 

Black Flowers

He said – long ago – that
myth was dead. He meant it.

“Myth is dead!”
“Long live myth!”

They are playing out
something. Legendary.

Picks up her glass. She
has a glass, with coffee,

ice and milk in it. Thinks
about the refugees on the

road. Road to what, to
where? With nothing but

their clothes on their backs.
Mythic and literal.

How to speak about them
and why? How to speak

to them. To keep them
in mind. In our minds.

“Bless you and keep you,”
so the prayer says.

-Norma Cole

Trend alert: Embroidered denim

Lately the internet has exploded with pictures upon pictures of embroidered denim pieces-street styled. We all know that this trend is definitely not new but it is more prominent in today’s media.

It is refreshing to see such a 90s -crossed with 70s inspired look come back to life.  These pieces are likely to top  my wishlist.

Are you going to jump on the band wagon? or Are you already loving this trend?
