Wishful Thinking

Wish for something everyday! It doesn't hurt to ask. Have FAITH! Either your wish will be granted, denied (sometimes denial is good! haha) or it just might be granted at a later time in your life. Sometimes I simply wish for a peaceful & pleasant day. Other times it's for something in particular I may want.


On this particular day, I wished for the rain to stop so I could photograph this floral dress I purchased from ASOS. The dark floral print of the dress was truly befitting of the weather that day. HaHa Cloudy, rainy skies loomed over the city and the wind was seriously whipping! Talk about blowing me away (and don't even mention my little camera tripod)! HaHa Well, the rain did stop long enough for me to get in a couple of photos, the sun came out and then it rained again. HaHaHa Grass on my shoes. Check. Head & feet cut off in pic. Check. Damp hair. Check. However, I still smiled because my humble wish was granted. :) AND I'm ordering another black cardigan, because after looking at this one, it is seriously faded! HaHaHa Pictures reveal everything! Have A Great Day!

  3. You are so right Kim, wishes do come true - not always the big ones, or the unrealistic win-the-lottery-type ones... but if you focus on all of the small things you hope for that do actually come to you, you'll be a very happy, positive person! So glad the sun came out for you to snap these shots, your dress is just lovely; I'm especially drawn to the empire waistline with the velvet ribbon. Happy Monday!

  6. Hello lovely!! I agree. Sometimes we can't always get what we want, but we get what we need...we can wish and wish, if it comes true, we are thankful and if it doesn't sometimes it just happens another way or when we're more ready!! You look radiant, I love the outfit, the colour suits you perfectly!! I do hope you had a marvellous Easter time doll. I took yesterday off because I needed the break...sat in my p.j.'s all day, haha!! It was so nice though. Sun is shining here, so I think I'll be heading outside!! I do hope you have a great day doll xx

  12. I don't exactly wish; I pray, and make statements of faith, like "Thank you God that today IS peaceful and blessed" :) You look beautiful in that dress! (I also wanted to say I envy the wind you're experiencing, but decided it sounded too odd lol)!

  34. I'm glad your wish came true - and you are right, we need to always ask for what we want, how else do we ever expect to get it?

    Your floral dress is so pretty too, and perfect for spring!

  39. What a pretty dress in a lovely colour combination and print. The fabric looks so lightweight and feminine too but you would definitely need your cardigan here. We have gorgeous sunshine and blue skies but it is still very very cold!Hope you had a good Easter weekend, Kim.

  40. Your blue dress is gorgeous! If you didn't mention about the faded black cardigan, I wouldn't have noticed! =D

    P.S. Thank you for your concern on my health and praying for me. I truly appreciate it. I'm praying myself and keeping my faith in check everyday. I also understand that things happen for a reason. You're one blogger than I would consider as friend so I'll share with you what happen actually. I'm diagnosed with Endometriosis. In non meds term it's basically a cyst and it's in my uterus. It has been my "pet" for the last 2 years and since it didn't grow nor was harmful so Dr said I've to monitor it every 6 months. Yesterday, he told me I have a 2nd one now. (Sigh). I guess it's time to do something about it now. I hope you do a yearly meds check to monitor your health too. It is really important.

  41. I wish to be brave and trust my heart and try something new moving away may be uncomfortable at first but then it will be comfy in the future. Putting my wish out there!

    P.s. I love your dress this color fits you beautiful doll.

  42. I just love this!! What an inspiring way to start each day. That dress is super pretty on you. I can tell you're going to get a lot of wear out of it. Can't wait to see how you style it once the weather warms up.
