Destination Wedding – what to wear?!

 

2015-08-31 11.14.07 am

I have a wedding in Koh Samui, Thailand in 3 weeks and I still haven’t figured out what I am going to wear! I started off by looking at maxi dresses but all of them resembles very bridesmaid-esque type dresses and I don’t really want to rock up looking like a bridesmaid! As it is an Asian wedding, red is also out of the question and black is usually not ideal. I want something not too formal, something slightly causal but still sexy and I think this Rag and Bone Cove Dress fits my criteria. I adore the back of this dress. What do you think?

The most beautiful sundog

Startwithblack Sundog-2 Startwithblack Sundog

“Actually, the best gift you could have given her was a lifetime of adventures.”  – Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll

 I’ve finally found you to see the most beautiful sundog. Without you, I wouldn’t be able to experience half the things I’ve experienced in my life. It just wouldn’t be the same. You fill my life with so many things that are good and I can’t wait to explore every inch of the earth with you.

Love,

Is it just me, or is everyone obsessed about their health these days? No matter where I go or who I talk to, health related topics always pop up in group discussions. I don’t remember a time throughout my whole entire life where my friends have ever been so diligent about gymming OR PT-ing OR going on some 5:2 / green juice diet OR being super competitive on some Fitbit thing you wear on your wrist. What else? How about the variety of active clothing available AND organic superfood like quinoa and chia seeds AND Pilates reformer and Xtend Barre classes (I mean, seriously, what the hell is that?!). Even yoga mats now come in gorgeous psychedelic prints! You really can’t escape it and you can’t avoid it. It is right there in your face everywhere you go. And so it should! If there is one thing that you should invest in, it really is your health more than anything else. Because without it, does anything else really matter?

Crossroads

Startwithblack_thingvellir

One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. “Which road do I take?” she asked. “Where do you want to go?” was his response. “I don’t know”, Alice answered. “Then,” said the cat, “it doesn’t matter.” 

- Lewis Caroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
