In light of recent events that left the world sick to its guts (save for pockets inhabited by human degenerates chanting under the same banner), I had contemplated whether pushing yet another, self-infused, colour-clad story was the appropriate stance for a Monday morning. I had spent the weekend mourning for a city I loved, for the friends (from Beirut, Paris, Ankara and further) I cherish like family, and a humanity that proclaims to be under God yet Godless in action. There were moments of utter disbelief, powerlessness, of loathing; but this morning I woke up to a London enveloped in milky fog and odd silence, and decided to get on with things, with zeal – if not more. To love life and celebrate light, because if pre-school taught anything, it’s that thriving in your current disposition is the only effective way to deal with bullies. So dear readers, keep calm, and carry on – and rejoice in the fact that with this, we raise a middle finger to those who envy and terrorize freedom, love and peace. And here, an oufit post to raise the stakes – choke on that, bully.

With that said, my heart goes out to those affected in the attacks, regardless of resolution. I hope you find rest in knowing the world breathes at the same tempo today.

  1. Well said. I sometimes have to remind myself to get up, get out, live and create. By doing so you are keeping peace within yourself (something that is really important).

    I have been reading your blog for a while and really admire everything that you do here. Best wishes!

  6. You have such an eloquent way of writing- your words flow beautifully. Praying for the whole world at this time- praying for all the lives lost and for the families that are grieving and for the people who are scared and for the radicals who can’t see the light.

  10. I agree with everything you wrote, and difficult as it seems sometimes, it’s all we can do. Love the looks again, always different, but always classy. x

  11. Sensitively written and a beautiful tribute to those who have to live their lives in fear of the actions of other human beings. Wherever they are in the world. No one should go out on a Friday evening to enjoy life with their friends and family and be worried about not coming home xxx

  17. I admire that you are able to use your social media platform to speak out about relevant and global issues intelligently. There is no shortage of non self-effacing social media personas and to come across one of substance is refreshing. I echo your thoughts and I’m sticking a finger up my nose whilst flying a kite with you.

  19. Your words and attitude reassured me, that my intuition, when I visited your site for the first time, was right. I felt like I’ve found a virtual soulmate and this feeling grows since then. Thanks for being such an inspiration, not only talented, fun, but moreover a really good person.
