Happy Thursday and almost holiday weekend! I feel like it was just yesterday that I was celebrating Memorial Day Weekend last year in the Hamptons – where has the past year gone?! So, in honor of celebrating the change of seasons, I thought I would style my newest white dress from Abercrombie + Fitch. I paired the dress with a light-weight navy leather jacket – perfect for cooler nights – and some of my favorite accessories. For more summer style inspiration, make sure to follow me on Pinterest because I’m pinning fashion and beauty inspiration every day! (Check out my Summer Style board here!)
Also, I just back to NYC from my long vacation in Arizona and Vegas, and I cannot wait to share the overload of travel and outfit posts coming your way in the next couple of weeks! Stay tuned! xo

Shut It, Babe – SketcBook Pro for iPad (2017)
Have you ever met people who always be so fussy about whatever you do? Always think that their opinion is right and makes you feel unsure about what you do?
Sometimes you may hear something like: Why you seem so skinny? Oh are you gaining weight? You never post the picture with him again, are you guys done? Your style is so outdated! That blush color makes your cheeks look chubbier! You want to be an actor? Just enjoy the life you have now, don’t seek something impossible, darling. And… etc.
Wear those unmatched color outfits you like, gain weight, lose weight, get serious, or break up, be an actor/artist/musician do whatever things that suit you well. Their opinion doesn’t matter for you, you have your own choice so don’t let anybody control your decision with their opinion.
Maybe some people are…

What if life success isn’t about your education, the experience you have or who you know? What if in fact all you need is a new perspective on what already lies within you?
Our perspective (how we see ourselves) is actually more critical than anything else. It trumps your education, background, and even experience. It is the mere ability to remain positive and feel powerful in any given situation that remains to be the most important in creating success.
Regardless of the perspectives you have had about yourself up until this point, with simple shifts in your thinking on a daily basis, you can also shift your mindset permanently. Yes, permanently! You can turn that automatic negative voice in the back of your brain into a voice that actually talks you into productivity. A voice that keeps you moving rather than guiding you to lie down and rest.

I wish women would stop taking relationship advice from ‘men’. And by this I mean men who are unqualified. These men are not Counsellors, Psychotherapists’ or Psychologists. They don’t know JACK about you or your partner. But they are perambulating as relationship experts on social media and even on TV. Some of them are labeling themselves as lifestyle coaches with little qualification to show. And worst still, a lot of these men have terrible track records of being awful partners to very many women. And you know what? Some women are doing it now too, they are on Facebook live, Instagram live! Talking about how you ought to ‘do’ your man!
Don’t get me wrong we can learn so much from other people, but in my opinion the tell-tale signs of a fraud is when you hear their advice predominantly directed at the woman; cook more, serve him, kneel when you serve…

Scientists have created an “artificial womb” in the hopes of someday using the device to save babies born extremely prematurely.
So far the device has only been tested on fetal lambs. A study published Tuesday involving eight animals found the device appears effective at enabling very premature fetuses to develop normally for about a month.
“We’ve been extremely successful in replacing the conditions in the womb in our lamb model,” says Alan Flake, a fetal surgeon at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia who led the study published in the journal Nature Communications.
“They’ve had normal growth. They’ve had normal lung maturation. They’ve had normal brain maturation. They’ve had normal development in every way that we can measure it,” Flake says.
Flake says the group hopes to test the device on very premature human babies within three to five years.
“What we tried to do is develop a system that mimics…

Freelensing was first introduced to me over two years ago on a photography forum I belong to. Someone shared her experience of experimenting with detaching her lens to take pictures, and I marveled at what she came up with. The works were dreamy, flawed, blurry, photographic prose. I immediately grabbed my Nikon to try it out.
But…it didn’t work. I couldn’t see through the viewfinder, and only saw a black screen when I pressed the shutter button. What was going on?
Coming together on the forum, we soon discovered the problem: the aperture on my Nikkor lens was scrunching closed whenever I removed it from the camera. The only solution was to tape it open, or rig it with a piece of folded paper.
Annoyed, I gave it up for a while.
A few months (?) later, everything changed. I discovered the work of Irene Suchocki, and my interest…
