Hi everyone! Welcome to, or back to the chic addiction. I'm sorry that I haven't posted in the past two weeks like I said I would, but I've been swamped with work, and life has been throwing everything at me without giving me a break. A lot of opportunities have arisen these past two weeks for me and I'm extremely happy and excited about them.
As I write this post, I am experiencing one of the opportunities I've been blessed with recently, that being my new job. I've recently been accepted to work part time at 4ever Boutiques (4ever Katwalk & 4ever Glam). Feel free to visit and check out what we have to offer, we have amazing stock! The excitement is so real that it is bouncing off of me! Being able to work in a field I love is absolutely amazing, even if it is for a short period of time. Remember to always do what you love, and if you can, make money out of it! Nothing is more enjoyable than that.
Although it has also been 2 weeks since the Paris attacks, this is still something which never leaves my mind. I had applied to one of the top fashion academies in Paris, waiting to hear about my acceptance and scholarships when this happened. Fervently pray for, and keep in mind the families of those murdered in the bombings and shootings not only in Paris,but across the world.
That being said, I've realized that as privileged people, some of us take too many things for granted, whether it may be water supply, food to eat thrice everyday, a roof over our head every night, or even plain old family. Be grateful for what you have, always. You never know whether or not your last moment with a loved one will be your last, and this is always preached and repeated to us all the time but it is the truth. Never depart from someone dear to you without letting them know how much you care for them. Show them your love or affection through actions more so than words. But most importantly, never ever leave a loved one with an unsettled argument. Fix it there and then if you can.
As I am now an additional person preaching this once again to you my dear readers, I tell you this with firsthand experience, because I could have lost a very important person in my life earlier this week. It has taught me that life is not constant, even if we would love for it to be, and to spend and cherish every moment you have with those whom you love. Make time for them, don't ignore them, listen to their problems, give them advice, take their advice. You never know when they will be gone.
We don't celebrate thanksgiving here in Barbados, but there is a lot that I am thankful for. For being alive, having my family with me, a home, food to eat, a beautiful island that is not a war zone and is not too violent. We have so much to give thanks for, but do we really pause and think to do it? Take this as an opportunity to think about all the things and persons for which you are grateful, and don't hesitate to show them how much you love and appreciate them.
In my outfit for this week, I chose a simple army green jeans and a knit top to go with the fall season in other countries (it's 365 days of summer in Barbados) . The accessories are mostly what made this outfit, and my favorite of all are my bootie heels. I'm actually in deep love with them.
Thank you for reading this week and I hope you all have a great weekend, and to my fellow Barbadians or Bajans, Happy Independence weekend!
