“Problems arise in that one has to find a balance between what people need from you and what you need for yourself.”–Jessye Norman
I’m so glad I found that quote. How do you find the balance? No, really someone tell me. I’m on a quest for different coping mechanisms so that I don’t internalize things. It can be such a draining habit to internal everything that I would absorb throughout the day or even over the years started clouding my energy and creating an air of negativity. As I begin a new chapter in life, I want actually give my all without any kind of energy looming over.
I keep telling myself that I’m going to try yoga. I keep looking at Lululemon thinking “I would have the cutest outfit for yoga.” Although, I’m pretty sure that’s not the point of why people go. So Sunday morning, I spent most of the morning reading different perspectives. One of my clients/friend/fellow blogger has her own business and blog which focuses on yoga, self-love, Chakras, etc.I highly recommend it. Jenny Ravikumar, she’ll Skype with you while working on your plan.. No really. Take a look for yourself. It really inspired me to take this new chapter on in a different approach. A bit of self-love never hurt anybody, right?
How do you find balance in life?
“Darling, all I require is fabulous shoes.”–Pinterest
The Truest Statement Ever
Normal by day. Glow at night in Jeffrey Campbell Cura. This is the best shoe on earth if I dare say so. It’s one of the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned. It’s an actual sneaker that I could go jogging in. They’re super cute. They’re subtle which for me is a bit of a change.
Just a simple shoe. White leather. Black laces. A bit of metal detail near the rubber sole. A normal sneaker that says “Hey, I’ve got style.” So you might actually be catching me in a lie now when I say they are “normal” because at night when the lights go off these babies glow.
I never though I end up in the closet again
I mean they glow in the dark and not a cheesy way but in a way that’s definitely going to make heads turn. Every store I went into Friday night someone complimented them. One person even said “It looks like a futuristic fashion jogging shoe.” I’ll take it!
Glowing in the car
Acid wash jeans with your glow in the dark sneakers
I’ve worn them literally all week. They’re so comfortable
Night jogging is not a problem anymore(probably more for the fact that I don’t jog anyways) and they’re so comfortable! I almost really want to get a pair of the Tronic’s because they’re high tops with silver contrasting. However, where am I really going to where these.
Note: The issue that I had with the leather tearing at the seam began to happen after wearing them. Overall, the joggers are worth the money. I hope next season they come back with a different glow color.
“Like a rhinestone cowboy!”
Topman Design SS14
Sounds like a pretty right way to describe this interesting collection for 2014. Topman Design(whom I generally love) has given us a great new trend we might have to cringe in order appreciate it thankful. Techno Cowboy is their futuristic cowboy trend for the spring and summer.
Topman Design SS14
The unfortunate thing is that had it not had the Western-style detailing on the shirts, I wouldn’t be opposed to the trend. I just hate just hate that with a passion. To each their own but it’s just not for me.
My New Obsession
I love SoundCloud. I follow who I want and get the latest in music when they release. I highly recommend it especially if you want to find artist who aren't typically played.

Jeffrey Campbell has won my heart after the fiasco last year. Remember? Thank you Jeffrey for the exclusive deals you have with Karmaloop, it makes me happy.
There once was a boy…..
Siren made for Miss KL is the best shoe ever!!! It’s an interesting creeper style shoe with a Lucite ombre platform sole. I was very excited when I received the box in the mail. I wasn’t expecting it actually be so heavy, however, they weigh in a whopping 21 lbs. I know this because I weighed myself and then calculated the weigh gain. Crazy, I know.
he loved shoes like Imedla Marcos(especially impractical shoes)
A fellow blogging friend of mine, had offered to take some pictures for me. Checkout InstantMilk‘s Blog! Thank you so much for taking the pictures.
he had an obession with shoes(particularly impractical shoes)
and he felt a little sad when he realized how heavy his shoes were.
“Fix your trench young man!” and so he did.
Strut. Strut. Strut your little self.
Sun in your eye but you look good
You wanna take your coat off?
It’s not cold out.
“Have a Romy & Michelle Day!”
What I’m Wearing:
ALLSAINTS Payne Mac Jacket- Great Trench
Topman Chino Shorts- Great for the summer with a pair of Oxford’s actually
American Apparel Mesh Jersey- Really cute & light. Nice fit
American Apparel Leg Warmers- Who can resist leg warmers
Jeffrey Campbell for Miss KL Siren- Lucite is heavier than you think when you used as a sole for your shoe!
“There is something that feels stagnant about having things you don’t use or wear. But shoes are my thing. Shoes and scarves, I’m a big fan of the scarf.” Leslie Bibb

Featured last season on the North Shore in Marblehead at local boutique French Italian, you can also follow Handmade by M on Instagram as well as email her at email@example.com for your custom orders. Website is coming soon as well as a possible shop on Etsy. Keep your eye out!
I feel this really calm feeling when I go to ALANGOO.com and I think you will like the pieces. If you're looking for unique, hand-made underground designers with Persian, Middle-Eastern and Central Asian backgrounds and show that in their work, you've come to the right place.
There’s everything from throw pillows for around the house to intricately detailed scarves. There’s clothing for men(I already have my eye on a few pieces), women and children. Before, I go to anything further, I really can’t decide though:
The jewelry is handmade too!
So before you start your day, I want you to take a look at ALANGOO.com and let me know what is it you like on there. I’m definitely a fan of the gorgeous AtoOs Collect brand on there. The shawls are absolutely stunning and I checked the designer’s profile out, she’s Houston based. I have support fellow people from Houston!
Enjoy your day!
Solestruck box…..Clever advertising
I’m pretty sure by now you understand how much of a shoe addict I am. I discovered this brand YRU, late last summer at Thom Browne in Boston. Well, their loafers or “Lowfs” are pretty amazing, I must say.
They’re pretty obscene. Pretty obnoxious. They’re downright blunt and to the point with words spelling out “CU NT” or “FU CK”. I bought a pair of the Lavi$h on Karmaloop and I bought the Fuq on Solestruck.
Addicted to shoes
The box is even pretty
I wish I had 4 feet
Solestruck was the experience. Considering that they were out of stock and waiting on an order to be filled I was expecting to wait awhile. The fit is amazing. It’s going to even be more amazing once, the weather calms down and I can wear them in more. They’re comfortable. Soft. Solestruck also includes band aids that say “Shoe Addict” as well as a musical cd and a poster. Highly recommended.
2014 is an interesting time for men's fashion. The trends that have graced the runways are definitely bold and daring. There are a few that I would actually rock myself.
Cozy In Your Blanket:
Burberry Prorsum Blanket Scarves
I like this trend a lot actually since I’m not a fan of the cold. Knit me a scarf if you want but I’ll take a warm blanket. Totally awesome! Blanket scarves are a new alternative, versatile and go with every style imaginable. Try it with suit.
I love scarves like that
Extra long, patterned and oozing colors. A must try accessory if you feel the blanket scarves are too much for you to handle. A little easier to adapt to daily lifestyle, worn with a sweater or become more casual when worn over a coat. To infinity and beyond with your scarf.
