I literally took these on my way to meet a friend.
During my trip to Toronto I barely had any time to style my outfits so I pulled on a favourite combination of mine, a baggy romper, a jacket and some sneaks.
By the way, the wall says 'stay true' which is something I've always believed in.
Because if you don't know yourself who else will?
This is a more personal piece than what I've usually written in the past, but it's something I've always wanted to do.
Pertaining to this year, I can officially say 2016 has been a terrible year with its curve balls and reality checks.
It's not like it has been a complete shit show, but I've learnt that life can be emotionally draining and full of set backs.
Especially with relationships.
And no, not the typical f-boy stories you see all over youtube story times, but the real hard hitting moment when a friend betrays you.
My friend Brian wrote an article recently about his friendship breakup which was something I could relate to.
The feeling of being less of a priority and being ditched for someone new.
That recently has happened to me.
Yes, I'm sad (and a bit angsty) but c'est la vie? What can a girl do?
It's inevitable in some friendships, but there's nothing I can do but leave and figure out what type of person I want in my life.
Take for example my experience in New York where a friend conveniently ditched me for several boys she'd only known for two weeks.
It was shitty and an emotional week, but when I look back at all the other terrible experiences in my life I smile.
Because I realized how strong I was.
If I was the same person I was when I first started Ko-morebi, I'm not sure how I would have dealt with that situation.
So in a way I guess this is my tribute to all the tough times.
Till next time lovelies!
