Those Who Fear The Thorns Cannot Pick The Roses

It is true good things come with bitter experiences. Over time I learned to embrace every negative trial I face in life and GROW from it. It is hard and it takes a lot of strength, even at times when I am about to give up I remind myself that this is only temporary and continue to move forward. It saddens me that many give up and settle with where they are in fear of facing the unknown. You won’t become all you were created to be without trouble. You don’t grow in the good times; you grow in the tough times. I choose to continue to confront life not by my own understanding but trust in God.

Okay, so let’s talk fashion 😉 This open shoulder top shirt is from HM, I seriously bought this for $10.00 during black Friday sale and is now 24 dollas! #WTF

The statement piece has to definitely be the Rose Embroidered maxi skirt I got from Forever 21! This skirt is beautiful and is also offered in white. Once again, I got this skirt on sale for 15 dollars at the store not too long ago, but it’s 30 dollars online! I suggest going shopping on actual stores since it seems to be a lot cheaper.

On my lips, I have the MegaLast Luiquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick in shade Missy and Fierce, aka me. Like I mentioned in my Wet & Wild Review, this brand has become one of my new favorite makeup brands because of how affordable they are.

Hmmm.. let’s see, my booties are thrifted and my big floppy hat decided to make an appearance again after a long time of going MIA. I know you missed it 😉

    I can attest to the fact that you can’t grow to who you’re going to be without trouble. Trouble builds character! Ok now I’m gonna have to make more trips to H&M, eventhough I really don’t like going to the mall. If there’s that much of a price difference, it’ll be worth the trip.

    Yes, every rose has its thorns and sometimes you get pricked. Your desire to learn from every experience will only make you a stronger and wiser person.

    Now to the fashion, I love love love your outfit. The skirt is adorable and I probably would have overlooked it in the store yet it looks amazing the way you styled it.

    Your title “Those who fear the thorns cannot pick the roses.” is AMAZING and oh so you. I love it and will recite to myself and others to remind us that in both good and bad times, we have the ability to grow from those experiences. You’re outfit rocked, and I love, love how everything is so affordable, I hate spending anymore than $20 on a shirt hahahah! Until our next outing and adventures! Muah! -Leena
