I first came to this city in 2011. I fell in love with this city about 16 hours into my trip. I fell out of love with this city never. I arrived with money, an appetite to eat everything and a urge to shop. Little did I realise that I would leave the city with a plan to change my life.
'There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered'
- Nelson Mandela

This time around I'm older, not much wiser and still with the appetite to eat everything and the urge to shop everywhere. The only difference this time is I have come with a plan; a plan to discover at least a part of who I am and what I want to do with my wonderfully whacky and whimsical life. This time around, I've decided to put all my thoughts onto paper, so to speak. This isn't your typical fashion blog or a 'what I ate today' blog; it's a good old-fashioned diary into my day, my thoughts, my ideas, my plans and most likely what I ate and what I wore.

Self discovery involves some certainties. This is what I know.
I am overly self concious and know that I am the only one who can change my outer appearance yet still choose not to change it.
I love hard and am always trying my best to do right by others and make others happy.
I am so dramatic, I make Broadway look like a high school play.
I LOVE food and am just a massive eater.
I am emotional and take most things to heart. I am also a jealous person
I am 50/50 when it comes to happiness and sadness. 

I occasionally hit a rut and sometimes find it difficult to get out on my own.
I love being the centre of attention just as much as I LOVE being alone.

I love to laugh just as much as I love to make others laugh.
I am so lazy and would happily spend a week on a couch watching the Food network or Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
I tell myself that being single is fine but it really isn't for me and all I want is to find that special someone.
I have an undeniable love for food and the art of cooking. 
I love fashion and have loved working in fashion for the last 2 years. I also hate that the industry is full of fake and selfish people who have their head so far up their ass that it has landed back on their neck.

In an ideal world, I would love to be the perfect combination between Carrie Bradshaw and Bobby Flay.
I now am reconsidering the career choice I made 2 years ago while in New York. 

So that is what I know about me. Welcome to my world.
