Attachments

attachments2

There’s something truly gorgeous about a beautifully-tied ribbon bow, I think. Someone with a few over-sensitive ideas about neatness, like myself, can spend a ridiculous amount of time fussing over keeping the loops of a bow equal, and making it look as pretty as it can.

 

I LOVE the ribbons on these shoes, but when admiring them and especially the detail at the front of the shoes, and trying to think how to best show them off,  they got me to thinking of attachments, how we bind ourselves closely to things, and others to us.

 

Life moves, and moves us with it. Well, if we are wise we move with life and not try to go against it.  Some things cannot be avoided, but with clear focus on where we are heading, and a lightness of heart, beauty can be find in even the darkest moments.

 

2019 seems to be hurtling towards the end of its time, and I can honestly say that this year has been one full of obstacles, and changes. Some have been really hard, but all have taught me something about myself. Some links have been unfastened completely, some tied tighter, and then there are those attachments which have been changed in nature, but re-bound with a different, but equally beautiful bow.

 

Nothing remains as it was. The nature of the passing of time is that all things change. This is not something to be mourned, because sometimes they evolve into something even more worthy.

 

That said… for now… just enjoy these gorgeous new Morgane Ribbon Heels from Gos… out now at  Fameshed, shown off perfectly with one of the Bedeviled pose from Gingerfish, and complemented with lingerie from Erratic.

Beauty

I first became aware of Ena’s light. Her pictures on Flickr, and her words on Facebook were a testament to her talent and heart. I thought she might be a kindred soul…. and I was right.

She is a real and true friend to me. We don’t speak each day, because we don’t need to. That said, I KNOW that if we lived in the same area we would often meet up for coffee and a natter! There’s never a lull, or silence to our friendship. We simply catch up as much as we can…and revel in those conversations, and ohhhh how we giggle! She also has a real talent for eliciting those proper belly laughs from me.

She is someone who has heard me vent, and has been there through some really tough times for me, and always… ALWAYS cheers me up with the wonderful way she sees the world. I am truly blessed to have her as a dear friend.

The natural beauty of even the reddest rose simply can’t compete with the shining heart of a good and true friend ♥

Wishing on a star

pause2 (2)

I have had to learn to take any moments of peace that I can to sit, and breathe. Life can so often be a never-ending whirlwind and it rarely seems to lessen in speed. There’s no point wishing on a star and expecting things to brighten. All I can do is protect my energy, catch my breath… and carry on.

This picture was taken on Elysion, and I am wearing the gorgeous new Phoebe ‘ribbony’ slingbacks fom Gos, further details at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/gospel_voom/48790332808/in/dateposted/
