"To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love. But then, one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness."
"I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close."
~One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
"I love how your eyes close, whenever you kiss me. And when I'm away from you, I love how you miss me. I love the way your kiss is always heavenly but darling, most of all I love how you love me. I love how your heart beats, whenever I hold you. I love how you think of me without being told to. I love the way your touch is always tenderly, but darling, most of all I love how you love me."
"There's a little truth behind every 'just kidding,' a little curiosity behind every 'just wondering,' a little knowledge behind every 'I don't know,' a little emotion behind every 'I don't care,' and a little kick of lie behind the distant eyes of someone saying 'I don't love you.'"
Photos from Le Love, an adorable little blog I just discovered via Daydream Lily. Loveology, and people's Etsy shops are where the rest are from. Gosh. Now my heart feels all warm and fuzzy after looking at all these sweet romantic photos.
I received an award (yay!) from Sam, one of my all time style icons and inspiration for those I-don't-know-what-to-wear-days.
It's certainly one of the cutest ones I've ever received. I'm going to pass this on to:
Light and Writing, a beautiful blog I just discovered and fully suggest you check out.
Here Come the Sun, another beautiful blog I just discovered.
Isabella, owner of such an adorable little blog, which has quickly become one of my daily blog stops.
Zoe and Jessica, who recently bid farewell to their old blog, Sick, and created their own separate blogs, another one of my daily blog stops.
I also have gotten tagged by Chloe to do an awesome tag she made up:
Q: Describe your personal style.
A: Layers, layers, and layers, with a girly touch. Think Free People.
Q: What are the staples in your wardrobe?
A: Hmmm...all my blazers because they look so good with no matter what you have on. Whenever I don't know what shirt to wear, I put on an ugly shirt and a blazer and the blazer hides my shirt. Oh yes.
Q: What's your signature look?
A: I don't really have a signature look because my style changes so often. I guess I wear blazers paired with skinny jeans and flats a lot because it's so comfy.
Q: What inspires you?
A: Beautiful photos and words (hence why I started this blog).
Q: Who is your fashion muse?
A: MK Olsen, Coco Rocha, Cory Kennedy (although I'd never wear anything like that-I am in awe of the fact that she actually has the guts to wear what she wears and people admire her for that)...there's more, but I just can't think of them now.
Q: Favorite purchase of all time?
A: This awesome vintage mini dress with a peter pan collar and two pockets on the sides. I bought a cotton red sash/belt-esque thing from AA and use it to tie in a bow around my peter pan collar and I've gotten lots of compliments on it.
Q: Biggest splurge?
A: A Burberry trench coat which I don't regret splurging on-I wear it all the time.
Q: What's your beauty routine?
A: Well...it depends on how much time I have to get ready. I usually just swipe on some dark blue or light brown eyeliner, a couple coats of mascara, and a few dustings of blush.
Q: What jewelry do you never take off?
A: I don't never take off any particular jewelry I own, but I do wear this silver Tiffany ring I got a couple of years ago quite often.
Q: What are you wishing for?
A: Oh gosh...I honestly don't know. Money to go shopping? I guess?
Q: What are your obsessions?
A: Long, flowy tunic tops with skinny jeans and lots of layers.
To wrap up this really long post, I've been thinking of making moleskine notebooks like this...
...and then selling them on Etsy. I was wondering if you think anyone would buy something like this. I need your opinion: should I start making them to sell, or not?

Well...that's all for now folks. Happy Saturday!
