WiseWordsWednesdays: Progress

  
Every single person out there has their own definition of success. Whether it be material, emotional or spiritual, someone has their own concept of what success means to them. 

For me, success is all three of these things. In some things I put work into I have not progressed as much as I would’ve liked to but maybe my expectations of myself can be a little OTT and unrealistic. 

However, like a lotus flower, all my growth has occurred during the toughest times of my life. Spiritually, mentally and emotionally I have come to terms with the person I am and I’m very proud to say that I now know myself as a person. To me, this is the progress most people (apart from those closest to me) do not recognise as progress or achievement even though I would argue this is the most important journey of life itself. 

To conclude, don’t stress too much of you’re not there yet. Any progress is progress. No matter how you define your success. 

Have a beautiful day and grow flower buds!

When you’re a child, you get a dress from Disney to make all your princess dreams come true. When you’re an adult, you get a dress from Elie Saab to make all your princess dreams come true. Golden threads, pastel pinks and blues, twinkling embroidery and a bridal end of show dress make the Elie Saab show the fairest of them all.

If you ever wondered what Roman royalty would wear, look no further than Valentino. Rich reds, golden gladiator sandals and beaded head wear gave the models in Rome the appeal of an empress.

There’s isn’t much to say about the Viktor and Rolf runway as the garments speak for themselves. However, it truly demonstrates how fashion is an art.

Zuhair Murad was ultimately my favourite Haute Couture collection this season. The colours and sprawled resembles the ever changing colours of the sky and the tailoring of the dresses screams elegance and marvel. 
Those are my favourites, what were yours?

Friday: NEW LOOK WIRELESS FESTIVAL

#NoFilter

Arriving at Finsbury Park, London with the girls at 12:30ish I was excited for the day ahead (going to see Major Lazer was a bucket list goal). 

The atmosphere was incredible wherever you went and the music was insane.

Cooling down before Major Lazer


Obviously, being a huge EDM fan and with Diplo being one of my favourite DJs, Major Lazer was my main motivation to go to Wireless in the first place. Therefore, I wanted to preserve my energy for their one hour set and take the time to relax in the sun after getting drenched in my own sweat in the Pepsi tent. Think of walking into a room with a huge blow dryer constantly blowing at you… That is how hot it was in there!

 Jauz is another favourite DJ of mine who is under Diplo’s label, MAD DECENT, so as the video demonstrates, I was SO happy when Feel The Volume dropped!

I’ve always had a passion for dance music, but honestly, when the bass travels from the soles of your feet and rattles your rib cage… There is no other way to describe that feeling than ‘euphoria’. It’s hard to even put into words. 

I must admit though, I did leave early to beat the rush of sweaty, tired and drunk festival goers, so I did miss Drake which I am a tiny bit gutted about even though he was need a priority for me to see in the first place. 

To conclude: after 4 hours of travelling by train and tube, getting tan lines from my sandal straps, losing the jewel detail on one of my sandals whilst being jumped on at Major Lazer, sweating to the equivalent of 3 consecutive Jilian Michael’s workouts and losing one of my friends for 2 hours, would I do it all again? OF COURSE!!!
