LE CARRÉ

I have a couple of "life-stories" to share before I talk about my outfit for the Paris Mon Ami event from my previous post.. God knows how thankful I am at this point of my life. I feel that I am truly blessed by all the great opportunities and occasions that I've encountered for the past few months. I can't exactly share everything on this blog, but I'm simply grateful. I used to whimper on the things I didn't have but lately, I've learned to embrace and appreciate the things I already do. how? first off, stop comparing. If you keep juxtaposing your life with others, there will never be an end. Can you read and look at my blog posts now? Well, you're already blessed that you have a pair of functioning eyes. Even if you have a high myopic degree like me, at least you can still see. Start off by looking at the little details like the eye example. You will realize how many things that you can be thankful of..

"Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." - 1 Thessalonians 5:18

PS. Never thought print-mixing was this fun.. I couldn't find a good occasion to experiment with clashing prints until Paris Mon Ami came into my agenda. andddddd this was also my first time not carrying a bag out. The skirt has HUGE pockets in it. I managed to snuck my credit card wallet, mini vanity set, and my phone into them, leaving my hands free take pictures and have a drink with my other hand...

Yeay, print-clashing! Although i'm not a big fan of too much print, i really love the creativity put into this look. It's like a D&G Spring 2012 trend right in front of my eyes. Lovin' the photos, too!

WOw AND the (wrongly nonchalant) way this scarf wraps your skin is full of mischievous exquisiteness Here I can't help BUT say (§ naturally approve) Dear !

Great post!

It's important to be thankful about everything, especially the things that are so often taken for granted.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 is such a good verse to remind us to be thankful.

"Happy moments, praise God. Difficult moments, seek God. Painful moments, trust God. Every moment, thank God."

Thanks for sharing, Michelle! =)
