it's amazing.

Let's start the week on a good and happy foot with a start-of-the-work-week inspiration post!
I have to constantly remind myself to wake up! There is beauty all around me.. I just have to look for IT.

I'm not the biggest Kanye fan in the world. I'm actually annoyed with him most of the time but that's because I really enjoyed/respected his earlier work and I'm confused with who he is now. But boy do I love these pictures of Mr. West taken by Tommy Ton of Jak and Jil at the MoMa Garden Party earlier this year. 
I think this just shows I'm a bigger Mr. Ton fan than a Mr. West fan.

A magical pathway of books that I would want to follow any day:

Beautiful hydrangea cupcakes that look too amazing to eat:

In my last post, I talked about embracing our own individual quirks and I loved this article on Miranda Kerr from New York Magazine. I think Miranda Kerr is one of the most beautiful and stylish women out there in the celebrity world but she is still a woman and deals with her own insecurities and self doubt. In the article, Ms. Kerr says, 

"I just remember, like, the first time I met Adriana[Lima], she was so beautiful. I was like, ‘Why would they want me? I mean, look at her. She’s incredible.’ And then I met Heidi and Gisele and I was like, ‘What am I doing here?’ "
“I can’t feel bad about being who I am, just like the girl next to me can’t feel bad about being who she is,” she says. “Because a rose can never be a sunflower, and a sunflower can never be a rose.”
Later, backstage at the show, she repeats the sentiment like a mantra. “I want to encourage women to embrace their own uniqueness. Because just like a rose is beautiful, so is a sunflower, so is a peony. I mean, all flowers are beautiful in their own way, and that’s like women too.”

Anyone else crushing on Ms. Kerr?

I'll end this post on a very simple note.

You are Beautiful.

  4. What a lovely post :) Those hydrangea cupcakes are sooo pretty--those are my favorite flowers! Perhaps according to Miranda I am a hydrangea?

    Also, I agree that the old Kanye is much better.

    Much Love,

  5. It is always important to keep your eyes open and watch the beauty around you. I try to make a note of it every day. I don't want to miss anything.

  8. Miranda Kerr is too stunning!



  9. What a lovely inspiring post, it's really eye opening to realise that even the most beautiful of women can feel self conscious around others (adn she really needn't be!) I love those pictures of Kanye, too.


  10. Ughhhhh as if Miranda Kerr wasn't perfect ENOUGH!? I might just have to repost that interview because it is just so good.
