Since my last blog post, I have spent a lot of time thinking. I realized that I still have four days worth of outfit photos left on my computer from my photo-shoot that I did with Christian last year that are not posted on my blog. So I’ve decided that I am going to post the photographs out of respect to Christian as a token of my appreciation for all of his hard work/dedication and the time that he spent helping me bring these images to life. I will include a brief description of what my initial vision was for each outfit post. As for the content of this post and the next few posts, I will be writing/expressing my gratitude, what I have learned from this experience, what success means to me and what to expect in the future from me. So scroll through to read what I am grateful for and some people that I would like to thank.
My initial vision for this post, was to showcase how one can dress down this outfit with sneakers or dress it up as shown here.
Photographs by Christian Nambayan
During this experience through blogging, I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with some amazing people. I have also had the chance to attend some amazing events such as Vancouver and Toronto Fashion Week and Eco Fashion Week. My next post will go into more detail about what I learned from this experience but I want to stick with gratitude today. I mentioned in my previous post about happiness and how it impacts our lives. I think expressing gratitude for the simple small things can really trigger more positive emotions and can spread kindness. So I hope this post inspires you to reflect upon the people and the experiences in your life and express gratitude to towards them. What are you grateful for? Is there someone in your life that you would like to thank and if so, what for?
The People That I Would Like to Thank:

Thank you Christian Nambayan for taking the time out of your busy schedule on evenings and weekends to capture all of these amazing photographs.

It has been a pleasure working with you!
