Live Young

{hair accessory c/o anagon, emoda bag, second hand mango sweater, dress c/o dahlia, shoes and socks from japan, illamasqua lipstick}

“Is that brown backpack you’re always carrying on your blog your favourite?” my boyfriend asked me the other day. Well, not really but it’s just my bag-of-the-moment. I actually don’t like buying new bags most of the time. I really love over-using, abusing one bag at a time until I don’t want it anymore. I don’t know if that’s a positive thing or not.

I just saw this song by One Direction entitle Live While We’re Young and it became the soundtrack of my day. Sometimes, I just worry too much about my future. I want certain things to happen and if it doesn’t happen the way I expected it to happen, I’ll feel terribly disappointed in every atom of my body.
At the same time, I don’t want to do anything that would keep me away from track. I set myself certain limits that I won’t break ever like for example, taking drugs just to experiment. I personally think, I can make myself happy without relying to any substance that could probably get you high. Young people equates themselves to being wild and free. Most of the time, they pertain to drugs or alcohol. However, I’m genuinely happy with my cake and tea.
Live While We’re Young. “To live is to travel” is my life’s current mantra. Planning to go back to Philippines again this December for a special event and visit my relatives in Australia. I can’t wait to see the wallabies there, enter the Taronga Zoo and meet new people from Melbourne. Opportunities are only infinite if you take one at a time and I can’t wait to grab mine.

    I have stopped worrying about the future. I'll worry about it when it's already the present.

    And yes, I need a back pack for myself too!

    Love your outfit Ash!! And I love your bag. I actually have a ton of bags, but I keep using the same ones for certain periods of time. I don't like changing bags often, haha! I think it's something that stuck from highschool.

    And ah, I think I know what event that is!! Hoping I finally get to see you and take pics! <3
