Blooming With Paris

Spring hit early when I was in Paris, so I though it would be completely fitting to wear this blooming Mary Katrantzou one piece dress on one of the days. As I spent the day discovering beautiful monuments in Paris, I found it quite ironic that I had the most beautiful landscape motif printed on my dress.  The moral of the story? Sometimes we invest so much time trying to get inspired by external things, when really the inspiration we are yearning for already lives within us. Whether it be treating yourself to that special dress, spending time with your girlfriends, or simply having a moment to yourself…. I hope that this week you will invest some time in doing something special for yourself!

On another note I was extremely pleased to see everyone’s enthusiasm as I revealed My Top 5 Instagram Editing Apps. Reading your comments and seeing your beautiful new edited Instagram photos made my day! Please let me know if you would like to see more of “my top 5″ posts, and if so taking requests now!
