To your Heart's Desire

Hello People :)

Today I'd be writing what I love to write about :D Love and Relationships. So leave what you are doing cos I'm sure after reading this, you'll think about what needs to be thought. Confused? Don't be. Read along :)

P.S. This is not my Story! These are pure thoughts. So anyone who is in disapproval, I respect you :)

Any relationship requires constant effort to be put in, day in and day out. You have to express your love in a million ways so that the other person knows that YOU ARE THERE for them. They shouldn't feel neglected and you shouldn't have to feel guilty of not doing so. If you are, then it's better to make amends right now! They say, It's Never too Late but it would be too late if you lose that person.


What people fail to realize is that when they are there, in the present, loving each other, caring for each other and making it a point to go out of their comfort zone; then that is it! You are in the best phase that life could possibly give you. Cherish it, you are lucky that you have someone who will go to any lengths to make you happy even if they are having a hard time.



Then there are those who continue to make compromises and sacrifices, putting their best and receiving nothing in return. The other person might be all the good that they could be but nothing comes out from them; then you wonder whether you made the right choice or not. You realize that nothing good can come out of this relationship and so you make a decision to end it for your sake. Then by the sheer chance of luck or miracle something happens and the person changes and realizes that you are important. What do you do? Do you give them a chance or let it go?



People say it is better to forgive and forget than repent later. My next question is, how does one know when to stop being the better person and leave everything for the betterment of one's future. It is okay to make mistakes but it is not okay to repeat them. Mistakes are our teachers: if we don't learn from them, we are insulting our past, present and future. The Answer: Forgive until you feel that your self esteem is intact, until you feel you are respected and taken seriously! Don't carry the devil on your back if you can't enjoy the dance!



I want to ask everyone here, if you are given two situations~ One in which there is perennial love but no happiness and second, in which there is umpteen amount of happiness but no Love. Which one would you choose? I know most of you might be thinking, what the hell I'm talking about (LOL) but lemme explain. First one is when you know you love them but are not happy because of things they do or don't do. Second is one where you love being with them, you are happy and safe with them but you don't love them in the obvious way.
The reason why I'm focusing on just the above ones is because I want to know what people would choose~ Love or Happiness (if these are the only options available)



Everyone wants love even if we don't express it. Subconsciously, in our mind, we need approval of that special someone whom we are incomplete without. Incomplete in the sense of fullness of life's goals, in the sense of our drawbacks and our dreams. One cannot prosper without happiness and I would laugh at their face (sorry) if they say otherwise! You are happy with yourself and someone makes you happy are two different things. So, next time you tell anyone that you are not happy with them, don't question yourself; whether it's you or them. The answer is always the latter!



You cannot make anyone happy if you are not happy from the inside. So first be happy and content with yourself, know what you want in life and from a relationship, know yourself inside out and then only step into any relationship. You can fall in love without your wish but it's upto you whether you want to be in a relationship or not. It is imperative for someone to be officially tagged 'a couple' for many reasons and so it's completely your choice whether you want to be in one or not. Don't make a fool of yourself and of others by thinking that the relationship will run its course and you wouldn't have to worry a bit! Constant love, care, understanding, communication, trust and the willingness to keep it going is what builds a healthy relationship.
If you have one, Nurture it :)

Jumble Sale Goodies

new in n outfitz 004new in n outfitz 005new in n outfitz 002
So I have been having problems with my camera so been using my stepdads and he has gone away with my mum on a little romantic getaway to Greece for their anniversary (cute right?) and taken his camera with him.. which means no outfit photos till at least next Tuesday, but I will be updating my instagram with outfits so if you don’t follow me already go follow me I update allll the time: @ttigerlilly
These are a couple of items I picked up from the jumble sale a few weeks back, got a bunch more stuff but as my camera is broken, I can’t photograph it! Anyway I’m uuuuber obsessed with bright blue at the moment hence my new moto jacket that I wore a few posts back, so couldn’t resist grabbing these electric blue gym shorts, I’m sure I can make them work somehow.  Also how incredible are the black shorts? I’m about 90% sure they are men's boxers/pjs which is grim but they were too cool to leave, so I washed them about a zillion times and now they are good to go! The pattern is so cool and who doesn't want stars, suns and moons all over their shorts?

Back to the outfit, I have seen people wearing backwards caps all over tumblr (im an avid tumblrernow: follow me http://fashionrushh.tumblr.com/) and thought it looked so cool! I havent seen many people out and about wearing caps other than Rihanna and its not like I see her out and about down my local pub or anything, so I thought id start the trend round here. I think it looks really cool and unexpected. Paired it with this gorgeous crochet dress to add a sort of boho feel to the outfit.

(Click on each photo to be sent to the website where you can buy it)

Ok so I know there’s no colour but c’mon who even needs colour if you have all this stuff? Not me!
I am in love with anything and everything matching at the moment so that cape/shorts combo is literally a dream. I also feel like I need to update my wardrobe with a couple more shoes (or 100 more) and I think those white brogues would be so cute in summer, they are only £28 aswell! Superb. Can see me wearing them with my white american apparel mesh 3D jumper (mines actually from ebay but shh) and some acid wash skinnies, aah I need to get them asap. Let me know what you’ve been loving lately, would love to know xxx

Ohio

(Jacket: H&M via ebay, dress: Primarche, Sunglasses & Boots: Also H&M)

What do you guys think of these photos? I want to start putting more effort into my photos and try different locations for every outfit, got ridiculously bored of that horrible brick wall. I think photography in blogging is actually really important, it makes the outfit look so much better and location has a big impact too. Let me know if you like these photos and ill continue to use funky and new locations!
Anyway to the outfit! I saw this dress thing on Kate's blog (I am head over heels for her style check her out if you haven’t already) and I fell in love. I love the whole sports luxe trend and was dying to try it out. So I popped into primark and they only had a size 12 left so I belted it up and made a really cute girly tshirt dress. Oh and £6?!?! Amazing. It reminds me of something Rihanna would wear and god don’t get me started on how in love with her style I am.
Yep you can’t get me out of these boots. Best. Buy. Ever..
