Omggggg guyss the longg awaited THRIFTED Blog Post!! THRIFTING IS ALMOST LIKE A HOBBY TO ME!!! There is nothing I enjoy more than looking over extraordinary things to find one that suits me. You find the most amazing things in thrift shops which sometimes are of way better quality than what we tend to buy from mainstream stores. I have been thrifting properly since November last year after I came across this over-sized DENIMMM JACKETT in British Heart Foundation. I WAS IN LOVE!!! Ever since, my collection has grown like crazy from denim to silk all the way to BALMAIN Paris. In the near future I hope to post my thrifted word-rope on the inspiration page but for now here is a thrifted look. Denim mom jeans, top, leather jacket along with the hand bag too! The only ITEM not thrifted are the shoes.
ISSUE OF THE MONTH: GIVING A HAND TO SOMEONE
“We rise by lifting others” Robert Ingersoll
SOOO YESTERDAYYY, i was sitting on my bed thinking, “i have to release that blog post tomorrow! what issue of the month should i do?” :// I thought maybe natural hair but then my inner voice was like “nahh BRUVV a…a think harder what is your POST really about? CHARITIES!!! What do Charities do? HELP OTHERS directly or indirectly. PERFECTTT.”
The art of helping occurs when YOU make something BETTER for someone else without expecting anything in return. In this way you are making their WORLD and LIFE a lot better or perhaps easier/happier. Helping doesn’t have to involve or cost money! You could help just by asking someone who looks distressed whether they are okay, making yourself available to listen, giving up a chair for someone disabled/pregnant, sharing the little you have, and sometimes just simple things such as smiling could go a long way. That light you shine upon others will light a touch of hope in their heart which they will hopefully pass on.
Almost two weeks ago, i attended this conference, it left me with many questions one being, “HOW DO I MAKE THE WORLD BECOME A BETTER PLACE FOR EVERYONE?” Although i could think of a few things, it got to me that i cant make everything better and i cant help everyone. This was QUITE a DISTRESSING thought. Few days later something clicked inside of me and that was, “if we all WORK TOGETHER and HELP those who are STRUGGLING or BENEATH us. The world will be a BETTER PLACE for everyone.”
“Let your light shine SOOOO brightly that others can see their way out of the dark.” Dr Stacey A. Maxwell-Krockenberger
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou
