After the Rain

I live in a place where there can be sunshine, rain, sleet, snow and hail all in one day. A nightmare for picking out an appropriate outfit to wear.

We took some friends to a rose garden one time, equipped with their fancy cameras. The day was fine but turned gray and started raining as soon as we got there. The weather hates us. It was wet, miserable and cold. Forget the flowers and taking photos. Then it stopped. And the roses looked more beautiful after the rain than before.

Perfect for photos.

After the Rain

I guess sometimes in life things may seem bleak for a while. But it won’t rain forever. And who knows, you might just be glad that it did.

Girly Pleasures

What girl does not love shopping. Boys don’t even bother reading on, I guarantee you’ll be bored to tears. I love shopping for clothes, shoes, bags, food, crafty things and even…books and stationery. Oh do I love stationery. Pens, pencils, paper, folders, staples, markers, box files, I love ’em all. I can’t help but be a nerd sometimes.

But my favourite: accessories. They’re like children to me. I lost a pair of Evita Perroni earrings once. I cried. Why couldn’t it have been a cheap TopShop pair? Why? Not that TopShop is cheap, I buy their stuff all the time. It’s just cheap-er in comparison.

Girls and Accessories

My favourite colour is turquoise, can you tell?

Father and Son

Sometimes it’s fun just to take photos of random people. Except of course when they catch you snapping away and wonder why this crazy person is taking photos of them.

Don’t they just look like they’re enjoying lazy times?

I think the pink shirt makes this photo. But what do I know.

My Little Sis

My sister and I were dubbed the “Moh Chicks” by those who rolled in our hood (excuse my lame attempt at sounding ghetto). People think we look like twins but we are complete opposites. As far as similarities go, the only thing we had in common are that we’re both girls and we have the same parents. She was sporty, outdoor-sy, loud, tomboyish, loved football and enjoyed all things that I didn’t. I was indoor-sy, girly, enjoyed shopping, played the piano, and loved to read. But we still master-minded many a mischief, and despite getting into lots of trouble over the years (we always got caught!), I love that little chickadee to bits.

Giant Big Sister Hugs

I still love you THIS much. And there is no escaping me.
