There’s nothing that symbolizes Valentines day more than hearts and Roses. So naturally I jumped on the celebratory bandwagon and got red roses.
Whether or not it had any impact on my mood towards love, it made my house a happier place. So thank you St. Valentine.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
When the work week is hectic (like this one), I try to make a bigger effort to make time for things I love, like taking the time to make my favorite tea, or re-read the most beloved parts of my favorite books, or simply meditate a little while longer. Because if there’s one thing I’ve realized, its that life is never perfect, its more about fleeting moments which can be.
One of my earliest memories of reading is this little fairy tale called Cinderella, the book had beautiful illustrations of all the details, the pumpkin carriage, the little mice, her dress, everything. My favorite character was Lucifer (the fat cat). I’m sure everyone knows how the story goes, and the part that stayed with me all these years was how she gets her happily ever after and its all tied in perfectly by her enchanted glass slippers.
I’ve read that book so many times that in the end it was barely even a book, held together by a string (old school binding). Of course, I had questions, like if everything turned back to their original form at the stroke of midnight, how did her shoes not disappear or turn into her normal ballet pumps? How did no one else in the kingdom have that same shoe size. So many questions. As I grew older, I just made peace with the fact that they were enchanted, and that there’s always room for magic, if only we allow it. Ever since then, I used to dream of finding my own pair of glass slippers (obviously literal). And as luck would have it both Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin have released their take on the iconic glass slippers, adding two more to my wishlist.
When I found out that dre beats, the popular headphones, was a literal thing and that he (Dre) used to beat his ex Fiancé, I knew I would never ever pay money for anything promoted by this nasty man! Yes, I know he issued an apology recently, and its not such a big deal to most people. But there are few things that will never be okay in my book, and domestic abuse tops that list.
Little did I know that the universe had something more personalized in store. A brand of headphones which has my initial, and makes my Zen12 sound absolutely divine.
Good vibes only!
