I’m back with a new post after what feels like forever! It’s really only been 2 weeks, & to tell the truth I have had these images from my navy velvet femininity shoot waiting in the wings the whole time. However, while on my trip to China, the VPN on my iPhone & iPad worked ok for the most part (I’m convinced the Chinese government is getting clever & blocking VPNs); my Macbook would not connect. Call me old-fashioned but I prefer to type my posts on a computer.

China was cold. I travel there every year at this time, but I can honestly say it’s never been this cold. I found myself shopping because I needed clothes, & not because I wanted them. And to make it worse, I was shopping for long sleeve sweaters & knitwear. NOT my favourite clothing to wear. It was quite miserable.

I was away for a total of 13 days. I was very happy to be home & see my mom when I landed. These trips are tough. For many, they only see New York/Dubai in February; & 1 week after returning I was off to China for 2 weeks. Woohoo must be fun living your life?! NOT. It’s extremely stressful & tiring. And even though I love the pressure, & I love the day to day of it all; it doesn’t make it any easier. And while I have learned to cope with it, as well as the other added pressures of my life; it’s hard not to feel like I’m making sacrifices on the daily. But that’s a story for another day 🙂
