By the Sea

"we cant choose our family. that's why God gave us best friends" - I read this quote from someone's twitter and I can totally relate to this. There's nothing quite like being with the people I love which includes my besties, my boyfriend, and several family members. I don't agree with those who say that we should always stay with our family because they'll never go away or whatever because they have the same blood. I dont think this is always true. I've heard stories where the father has sex with his daughter.. or some even sell their babies for money ?!? how inhumane are those people ? I think that the best people in the world are the people who love you for what you are.. they love you for YOU ! We have like 6 billion ++ homo species on this Earth, there's gotta be someone who appreciates you even if you think you're the weirdest kid on the block. Sooo go ahead and start searching for the people who you like ! :D
This is also one of the reasons why i love blogging.. it's like like a little community of fashion-lovers where I can make new friends with the same interest. this post is dedicated to two of my best blogger buddies : talisha and stella. I cant imagine where I'm gonna get all those laughs without you two :)

little shout out to michelle, fhenny, and diana whom I wished you guys could've joined us in the little dinner by the sea :D
wearing mitchybelle top, gifted floral shorts, ebay-ed long skinny belt, charles david wedges. and my trusty Zara camera bag..
artificial photoshop makeup.. this is why i totally love photoshop !
shot this one with a tripod.. and suddenly pesky securities came by and told us no photos allowed (when we all have been posing for around 30mins).. in the end, talisha's driver found out from the security guys that we weren't allowed to take photos because of the TRIPOD. damnit.. a tripod doesnt do any damage to the floor or anything for goodness sake. security guys in indo seriously need more training and they should shrug off their "im an important and smart guy" attitude.. because the truth is they are dodos and they dont have any COMMON SENSE.
i really love this last photo of stella and talisha.




Everyone looks fabulous! I want to be there. x

fashionable palette said...

Love these photos...and that photoshopped makeup is amazing! Good work!

chaoskontrolowany said...

Cute shorts;)

More than Mode said...

You look amazing girls!!!!
Nice shoots! ;)

ediot said...

what a great full post.
i enjoying reading what you have to say.
i miss my parents so much though- and when I'm at home they're always my top one priority instead of hanging out with friends I had growing up.
I have a lot of friends where I live now that i value very high- almost like family.
These photos of you guys are fantastic- so much joy.
And the shots themselves are great


Aki No Yuutsu said...

couldn't agree more (about the family thingin').
I kinda like what you did, with the artificial makeup.
Cute shorts, by the way!

Isabel said...

i love the floral shorts :)

collagevintage said...

You're gorgeous lady!!! this pics are great... In Spain weather is more cold now... and actually i need come back summer again (of course i'm impatient for wear some new fall clothes :P).

Love your photoshop make up, you're so creative with this program... hahaha!

Big kiss sweetie

PD: I hate too when blogger don't save messages... :P


Sanny said...

Awesome shoots, as always! You girls are so pretty, fashionable and talented! (: I totally adore your floral shorts!

And I couldn't be more agree regarding the term 'family'. I actually think that any individual that we let to be in our life or part of our life should be considered as family. Of course, it has to be worth it.

Have an amazing one, darl (:

I definitely agree with that quote and what you said. You hear horrible stories about family. And I love the blogging community as well.

You look great here. Love the top.

Laura Tenshi said...

I agree, we should be able to choose whomever we want in our lives, not just settle with those who are nearby. Great floral print shorts and your pictures by the sea are amazing.

Fashion Cappuccino said...

Beautiful photos!! Wow!! And I agree with you about family because it's not healthy to stay with a toxic family member and sometimes it's best to let it go and be with someone who loves you no matter what. xoxoxooxoxoo

Zarna said...

beautiful photos! this looks like such a fun day!


dred said...

yeah i really hate when security guards do that. i mean i know they are just doing their job but there rules are just pathetic and plane insane.

Gita Ayunda Hasanusindhy said...

i think the security thought that you might took the photos for a commercial things, because with a tripod and a dslr camera, you look like you've been in some kind of magazine photoshoot, am i riteee?

lalita tian said...

i like your floral shorts
nice photos as usual, mich;)

Pop Champagne said...

these are very lovely pictures! Though I have to say that I think family is worth more than anything. true, there are the twisted trashy families, but friends get jealous, backstab, sleep with your exes but your siblings will always be there and you can always count on your parents when you need support :)

Audrey Allure said...

Love your shorts!

Anna Leo said...

lovely blog and photos hooney! :)

Islandia Lane said...

so totally agree about family vs friends! It doesn't really matter if it's blood or not, it's the person. Here it looks like you have some amazing friends!
You girls are too cute!

And really LOVING that solo shot looking through the glasses. Great photo.

Poppy said...

Huda said...

discovered your blog 2 months ago and been a lurker ever since, love it. I agree with you completely on the bellow quote, true friendship is our own created family.

"I think that the best people in the world are the people who love you for what you are.. they love you for YOU ! We have like 6 billion ++ homo species on this Earth, there's gotta be someone who appreciates you even if you think you're the weirdest kid on the block. Sooo go ahead and start searching for the people who you like ! :D"

emily said...

wow, beautiful!

marina said...

i love the photoshop make-up:)


fhen said...

I agree with your statement, mich
sometimes those we meet as friends or even virtual friends can accept us better than ome of our own family member!

Anyway, everyone looks gorgeous in here!
