Chain Of Memories

0830bf1473af0f2f1bdf10ee5fe43488

 

2 feet tall and every moment I was

Watched lovingly and carefully like a hawk

3 feet tall and the world was

A mystical place through the lens of innocence

4 feet tall and I was carefree

Life revolved around work and play

5 feet tall and I had many questions

Because things no longer seemed

Like they were within my reach

I was no longer invincible

I was perplexed and overwhelmed

5 feet tall and 4 inches

I still discover life’s new facets everyday

Some of them I approve of

Some of them I detest

Some of them I find intriguing

Some of them I don’t understand

But I am still learning to live with it,

Taking it all in, one day at a time.

Summer to fall transition outfits!

With the fall approaching are you wondering whether to get a wardrobe upgrade? Here are some ways to style those gorgeous summer outfits of yours that you love, to seamlessly work for winter as well.

Bomber jackets are a standard clothing piece when it comes to sporting summer clothing in winter. It goes well with almost everything, adding an edge to the overall  look.

My personal favorites for the fall are fur coats. You can either go minimalistic with fur by opting for neutral colored coats or go for a bold look and experiment with a mixture of colors, prints and pair it with a plain tee or a printed one.

 

Your summer dresses can be worn by pairing it with a t-shirt underneath for a chic look. To easily pull off the look, warm pastel shades are perfect!

You can also have some fun with your outfits and try some layered styles, add overcoats or scarves and chunky boots to the mix. Here are few ideas of how you can do it.

The other standard pieces are long jackets and winter coats. Find one that works with most outfits, like beige colored, navy blue or the classic black one. In addition to that have a brighter shade coat, that you can wear on monochrome clothing.

These are the various ways I choose to wear my summer outfits for the fall. I hope you like it and give it a try. I would also love to hear your winter outfit ideas, so go ahead and tell me about it in the comment section below!

XOXO Erica

The Truth About Truth

a4b76e166c104f494ed0d2a9ba258140

Is truth an illusion of reality that we have created?
Is truth lost in translation?
Misinterpretations and ambiguity;
A magician’s trick designed for deception.

Independent perception or fabrication to woo the masses;
Hidden amidst a maze of lies
Some find it the right way, the others choose left
Some stand on grounds of neutrality
But truth is a mystery in itself.
Each side believes they take the moral high ground, each oblivious of the rest
Is truth staring us in the face and we refuse to acknowledge it?
Is it multifaceted with some of its faces not yet revealed ?
One sure way to find out,
Grab a shovel and start digging truth’s grave!

Twilight

d8b7a9e5bbf2a28b717343823285b9d8

Stars aligned perfectly in unison

Embroidering the dark blanket

The sun goes down, so does the disappearing crimson

The world breathes quietly free from the racket

Of birds or the cacophony of my thoughts.

I am a creature of the dark

I see beauty where everyone else fails to

For there can be no light without the dark

Lying in wait of the awakening of a chaotic world.

Warrior

There are things which are beyond our control. When life puts you to the test, and you have to face circumstances that you are not prepared for, that is when you discover how strong you truly are. You know one thing for sure and that is never to give up because giving up isn’t an option. At such trying times fate puts us through, you need to be your own superhero.

When you know your life is going to change

That it’s never going to be the same

And there is nothing you can do about it

Just stand helplessly and watch it transit.

When the storm tries to uproot your existence

A warrior is born amidst the turbulence

Only the strong and sturdy rise

Conquering darkness like the blazing sunrise

They make their own wings;

Stone-cold and immune to the uncertainty and swings

They stand tall and face with courage

Prepared for the worst, lest fate ever try to discourage.

What is love?

Each one of us has our own interpretation of love. The more I try to understand its nature, the more bewildered I am. Its seems like an endless journey, this quest to find the true meaning of love. The more you explore, the more entwined its essence gets.

rose

If love sets hearts on fire, doesn’t it extinguish over a span of time?
If love is forever, does it encompass the mortality of the soul?
If love is unconditional, why does it hurt when it is not reciprocated?
If love is fulfilling, what if the emptiness tries to creep in?
If love is perfectly imperfect, why do the imperfections threaten to shake the very fabric on which it was built?
If love is bliss,why at times does it seem blissful ignorance?
If love is forgiveness, don’t some mistakes make the heart go through a great ordeal?
All I am left with is the timeless question, “What is love?”
