Something To Think About

Friday, 17 July 2015

001. The other day I was going along my daily internet procrastination and came across a few quotes and questions that really make you question life, the 21st century world and humanity. They were too thought provoking for me not to share!

002. "Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religion destroys spirituality and governments destroy freedom"

- We prioritize money and the economy over basics like air, water, food quality, our environment, and our communities.
- We utilize an economic trading system that facilitates the death of millions of people each year.
- We divide the world’s land into sections and then fight over who owns these sections.
- We call some people “soldiers” which makes it OK for them to kill other people.
- We torture and kill millions of animals every day needlessly for food, clothing, and experiments.
- We send children to school for their entire childhood to memorize facts and skills that they will rarely use.
- We impose financial pressures on parents, forcing them to miss out on vital stages of their child’s development.
- We have thousands of religions, each one believing that their God or god-story is the only true and unique version.
- Love and compassion, which promote life, are mocked as facile. Whereas war, which harms life, is seen as honorable.
- Anyone with a really useful invention can forcefully prevent others from using or modifying it.

004. Now I just hit you with a lot of information but I don't know, this somehow all just really spoke to me and made me think. I hope it will for you too! All the above quotes/info are from this site, which I highly suggest liking on Facebook, because when you are mindlessly scrolling through your news feed full of rubbish, it's surprisingly refreshing to read something real. Tell what you have thought after this post, I'd LOVE to hear your thoughts!

An Outfit Post?!

Sunday, 12 July 2015

Skirt: Op Shop// Turtleneck: ASOS// Jumper: Sportsgirl// Bag: Tigerlily// Boots: Doc Martens// Necklaces: DIY and Gifted

001. TIME TO CELEBRATE BECAUSE THIS IS MY FIRST OUTFIT POST IN 4 MONTHS! Sorry about the absence, honestly wasn't planned at all. I guess it's just been a combination of me working all the time, saving all my money, not leaving the house and being generally lazy that has resulted in this predicament. I promise I'll try to work on it though, I still love clothes far too much, don't worry!

002. Apologies about the weird blogging routine lately. I'm trying this new thing out where I only blog when I'm really "feeling it." You know... like when I have a creative flair or a desire to just sit down and slam out a few posts. I don't want to force anything or push myself to do it, because it's a hobby and I want to enjoy it. If that makes any sense at all?

003. I suppose I should talk about the outfit now. I'm a bit out of practice, so naturally I'm looking extra awkward in these shots- oops. So far in my neck of woods we have been experiencing a very pleasantly mild winter and this is about as warm as I've had to dress during the day. I use this bag every single day, I LOVE IT! It adds such a nice bohemian pop of colour to my generally monochrome outfits. In a desperate move to prepare for Splendour I've been wearing these boots at every chance I get because I want to wear them in. So far, no luck. Blisters are still threatening to pop up with every outing I take them on. Luckily I am a shoe addict and do have a back up pair of Docs that are comfy. But I really do want to wear these, the whole hiker vibe seems perfect for a festival!

004. I'm planning on posting a bit more in the next week (fingers crossed). Sorry again for being so inconsistent- I promise I'll get my creative pants on soon!
