Sometimes the Monday Blues are only too real and colour your entire day in a negative way. However, when that happens you just have to push through the crap, figure out what you could do better, and realize what truly matters (and what doesn't). Many of us, myself included, tend to whine about our problems and focus on the negative side of things; however, we too frequently ignore the innumerable things with which we have been blessed. When I remember how incredibly fortunate we are in comparison to the rest of the world, I immediately feel deeply ashamed for making a molehill out of many of my first world problems (essays are easier to deal with than poverty and disease).
So bottom line? Let's try to discover what things we should really get agitated about-- like corruption, sexual assault, and environmental degradation-- instead of things such as how you disliked how so-and-so did this or that.
In other news, I wore this fun outfit for the Creme de la Creme Grand Wedding Showcase yesterday-- it felt really nice to dress up a bit after wearing so many comfortable and casual outfits during the week. I was happy to wear this black pantsuit that I only wore about twice before during the summertime. As well, I love this new blazer that I recently got from Topshop at a fraction of its usual price.
At the show itself, I was incredibly inspired by the many beautiful decorated settings, the delicious food samples, and the gorgeous dresses! It was certainly worth the trip and the girly time spent with a good friend, especially when we had time to chat over brunch at Yew restaurant.

I hope you all had a most wonderful weekend! Also, when you are feeling down, do try to put things into perspective and decide if they are even worth the stress and grey hairs.
