On my last day I would like to

It was a world I was not familiar with; I opened my eyes to the annoying alarm clock that was ringing next to my ears!
I was nervous, 1001 things running through my mind, it was my first day I was wondering will I be able to perform every task they ask me to do!?
I shook my brain and told myself “you are a bright young lady and you should remain confident.” – (I kinda needed the boost)

It was a sunny morning and my best friend and I were ready to start a new chapter of our life, meet new people, over come some difficult tasks and make mistakes to learn from and gather memories that we would cherish forever… and so we did.

We did all that and more, we felt like we entered a family of 5 floors that welcomed us and treated us with modesty.

It was a change from the daily routine, from the same people we encounter on our day to day life, it was a change that allowed us to be more open to different ideas that left us with interesting perspectives, it was a change and a good one I must say. There is so much we learnt and so much we have yet to learn but the encouragement that we got left us inspired and confident and made us feel, yes we are capable of maybe, doing something that was only just a dream.

I would like to thank all of you whom took out time for us, and spoke to us, advised us, took care of us, encouraged us, inspired us, and made us feel that we are worth your while.

It’s an experience, a chapter in my life, a whole new world that I’m not sure if I’m ready to close.
“To us this was the beginning, not the end.”
Thank you all once again.

Stella McCartney Resort

This is by far one of THE BEST Resort collection I've seen so far.
Her pieces are amazing, like her previous collection.
The colors, the style, the flower print.
In a few years these pieces would be vintage and a keeper.
Loved the collection <3
