What's Important in Life


I post a lot about fashion. Fashion is important to me. Doing makeup or putting on a nice outfit can really make you have higher self esteem when you are having a bad day, and it can help you express your character visually. But that isn't all that matters to me.

Here are a few other things I care about. 
 
 
 
The Environment 
Obviously if not for the environment sustaining us, we would not be alive. Unfortunately, environmental concerns often fall by the wayside of industry. Lets hope that more businesses and governments become involved before it's too late. Many European countries are already supporting Renewable Energy, but the Australian government is listening to Climate Change deniers. 


Friends and Family
Spending time with friends and family is super important to me. I don't always post pictures, or put the pictures up on their blog, so they can retain their privacy if they wish, but it is one of the things that makes me very happy. I don't see most of my friends as often as I like, I often wish for a great big country house where we could all live together.

Animals
I love being surrounded by animals. They offer a special kind of companionship that is different to the relationship we have with other humans, and they are so smart. I am dying for my own dogs and cats, and I miss the ones who have passed on. I have little figurines symbolising them on my altar.

Art/ Photography
I occasionally draw things, although my main skill is writing. I am infinitely inspired by others' art and the worlds they create.

Books and Writing
Writing is my lifelong love and my intended future career. Reading has always been one of my favourite pastimes and I love escaping to other worlds through books.

Picnics
 I do not go to enough picnics, I love them! Being outside among the trees and flowers (and sometimes old gravestones) when the weather is right is just perfect!




Gardens, flowers and forests
 I love plants. I hope to have a garden and maybe even a mini "forest" one day!

Cupcakes, fancy cakes and other sweet treats
Ok, maybe they're not that important, but yum!

  2. Me tooo!!! I do think the amount people care about fashion should not be neglected either, definitely not at the sacrifice of other things but it is important too! I love to see people expressing themselves through what they wear, we need more of that in this world, which is why I am so glad there are wonderful folks like you who dress in the way that their soul inspires them to; motivated and causing other people to become free spirits in their own selves as well ;)

  4. I, sometimes, have a hard time trying to recall what I love in life. I know that sounds a little bit pretentious, but sometimes I really need a push to realise what makes me happy. And yes, that is a big problem, haha. But I must admit I agree with everything you said, except the cakes. I'm not a fan of cakes in general, but I love other sweet things. :)

  5. I would have thought Australia would be all for the environment what with the whole ozone hole. And I too wish I could live in a country house with friends. Alas

  6. Me too to most of these! My stepdad works in renewables, and the recent governments in the UK have made it increasingly difficult for the industry because all they care about is fracking and nuclear energy. It makes me sad.

  7. Oh, my, picnic...I want to picnic so bad!! ^^
    Sometimes - especially when you're down... - it's good to stop for a sec and think about all the amazing things in your life that make you happy.

  8. Even when you post pics of make up and clothes, one can see how much you care about the planet and the creatures who live in it (our families and friends). You always sneak in a pic with a person who makes you laugh, or a pet, or beautiful image of healthy nature... We love you because you care about so many of the important things in life. ♥
