Hello my beautiful friends! I’ve got a really special combination for you this week - some new favorite music of mine, inspiration, favorite clothing item and much more. Let’s get started...
I discovered Ruth B by fluke on Periscope. She was singing live and I just couldn’t stop watching her and listening to her angelic voice. She is so raw and real with a captivating and unforgettable voice. It’s amazing to discover an artist right before she blows up into the main stream media. My two favorite songs by Ruth are Lost Boy, I literally listen to it on repeat, haha. It’s sad and sweet at the same time, as well as the song- Superficial love.
"Press on: nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful individuals with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent"
I couldn’t agree more with this quote. Perseverance is one of the most important skills we must all develop in order to succeed in any area of our life- work, family or health. Everything in life takes time and effort…We must learn to be patient, keep moving forward and trust the process. Everything I have been able to achieve in my 29 years is due to hard work, determination, vision and persistence.
This is a short film created by our talented videographer- Kat. This summer she came with us on a trip to Sardinia to help us film. She collected some other footage that she now edited into a beautiful, exhilarating film. It’s just 2 minutes long full of beauty, amazing scenery and good vibes.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you know about my seasonal obsession with - Pomegranate. Some of you even asked me why I like pomegranate so much. Quite frankly, I think it’s because it reminds me of my childhood. Pomegranate trees grow all around Azerbaijan, which is where I grew up. My grandpa used to feed me pomegranate. He would spend so much time cleaning the seeds neatly into a bowl, then add sugar, yes - SUGAR, haha! Back in the day not many people were aware of the harmful effects of sugar and then he would spoon-feed me this amazing mixture of pomegranate seeds and sugar. All jokes aside though, pomegranate is among the healthiest fruit on earth. An amazing source of vitamin C and is anti-inflamatory. Read about it here.
I love crop tops, because I have a lot of high waisted skirts, jeans and short and crop tops look amazing paired with them.
