I Don't: Personal Fashion

Outfit: Thrifted; Shoes: Moonspoon Salon; Nose Ring: Ms. Fitz; Jewelry: Assorted

I do believe in magic. I know it will happen. I just hope that I never stoop to the levels of those fake relationships around me that try to justify their settling for someone less than perfect out of the fear of being alone for the rest of their lives. It’s pitiful. But then again, maybe they have done nothing in their lives to be proud of. They settled for a mediocre job, a mediocre marriage and hence a mediocre life. And they are happy with their overall mediocrity. Hey to each their own I say. Whatever floats their boat. But incase you're wondering, pushing yourself to the limits, believing in yourself and actually trying to be all you ever wanted to be feels pretty darn good. Good enough to know that you can’t expect any less from your relationship either. Because just like your life, it has to be the best it can be or else it wouldn’t be worth it at all.

I had to write that down, so I don’t forget. Hence the tattoos on both my arms, one saying, “I do” and the other, “I don’t”. Have to remember that both these are equally powerful statements. They both can make and break the person I choose to be.

PS: This is a fake wedding. I didn’t really get hitched people. It’s only a photo shoot.

PPS: Have to thank Ramsey for posing with me as a groom in this blistering cold!! Trust me when I say it was the hardest shoot I’ve ever done because of the cold and he was such a sport!!

PPPS: Everything above is my personal “current” opinion and in no ways supposed to be a prophecy of any kind. I say what I think is right for me for the moment. May not be right for you and you should consult with your doctor/shrink before using ;-)
