Road Trip

When every thought absorbs your attention completely, you'll tend to lose yourself in the thought. Be present. Be focused. And make a conscious choice to de-clutter. Even if it is hard to.

"It is really nice to have you back..."

"It is nice to be back..."

"Who would have guessed we are on Sin-Island, away from the bustling of the city-life?"

"And this could be anywhere...."

Xaviera Alexander Fashion Haus

Candidly, I made them partly out of vanity and partly out of novelty.

I remember having a very brief conversation with my colleague regarding my interest with DIY-ing my own clothes and accessories....

Colleague: It seems like you have a lot of passion and interest in fashion, seeing that you are able to design and make all these clothes / dresses. Do you think you would be interested in taking up some fashion design courses?

Me: Nope.

Colleague: Why? I thought you would be.

Me: I have no interest in fashion design at all.

Colleague: They what do you like / why do you make your own dresses and accessories?

Me: I just like dolling myself with the things I've made.

P/S: The plan to launch our own label - Xaviera Alexander - selling made-to-measure fashion pieces online - is now put on hold until further notice. But we can still take small quantity of private orders (mainly accessories) if you are interested to have something chic, comfortable, and exclusively yours.....just email us at xaviera.alexander@gmail.com for further discussion.

Thought for the day.....04042014

"I just want to live an inspiring life.  Then why am I making it so hard for myself to achieve it?

Can inspiration be achieved in a chaotic physical environment? Yes, most definitely, when ALL it takes is just MORE effort.

Am I ready to put in the EXTRA effort to make it happen? That is the real question to be answered, I believe..."

Thought for the day...."Changes only happen when we go totally against everything we are used to doing." (The Witch of Portobello)

Admittedly, this morning I am feeling low. Instead of fighting it, denying it, and/or burying it, I've decided to just let it be.

Different? I don't know, because being silent in a crowdedly oppressed space doesn't seem to make me seem any different from the rest on the outside.

Does it mean Im doing something different for myself then? Probably so.

Expecting any changes? I dont know for sure. However, change does have to first come from within, agree?

"This Girl. Necessary Evil"

This girl has finally got her hands on some yummy cafe latte this Tuesday morning, hence she should be sedated for a while :)

Sometimes, the nearer you get to realising / achieving what you have always been striving for, the more nervous and uncertain you'd tend to be. 

Until you start acting unreasonably-annoying (if there is even such a term) or obsessive about you being nervous, the wannabe-nice-to-you-people around you will still tell you (and comfort themselves) that this feeling is normal. But, is it REALLY normal? Probably.

But what IS normal? You feel how you feel. You are what you feel. You have to just allow yourself to feel, no matter how nerve-wrecking that feeling might make you you. You HAVE to allow it to pass through you, so as to cleanse you and your being, and then finally be flushed out of your system along with all the unnecessary-s (or some like to call it the 'toxics').

This, my friend, is a necessary evil (for a Tuesday morning realisation while sipping, IMHO a great serving of cafe latte made with lots of love and effort).

"Ice Cold Beer"

"...You walked right past me at the bar...which, at that point, made me wonder if we would meet again someday?..."
