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:

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.
