*you. better. work.

Hola kiddies,

My semester has started off a little rough to say the least. Still a little jet lagged and unpacking can be just as tedious as packing!

Needless to say it's taking a while to readjust to New Jersey living...

...but the work never ends. Lots to do kiddies so get to it!

“I'm a greater believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it” ― Thomas Jefferson

Hope you all have a productive day!

*you're cordially invited...

One thing that I am most certainly going to miss about England is the tea!...
“Tea is liquid wisdom” -Anonymous
 I'm a self confessed addict...drinking up to four cups a day... [you can bet half my suitcase was filled with PG Tips] why not share the love with you guys?!

soooo I'm hosting a tea party! *fanfare* and you're all invited!

Traditional English tea....sandwiches, scones and sugar cubes #ohmy
...all online of course...haha what did you expect??

“There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea.” -Bernard-Paul Heroux
“Tea is drunk to forget the din of the world” -T'ien Yiheng
“If man has no tea in him, he is incapable of understanding truth and beauty” -Japanese Proverb

“Tea to the English is really a picnic indoors” -Alice Walker
 Anyways, no elbows on the table! *dabs corners of mouth with napkin*

Drink up!

*fabulous London.

“If London is a watercolor, New York is an oil painting.” ― Peter Shaffer
[...different; not better, not worse]

The time has come for me to say goodbye to this wonderful country and return to the States.

But don't worry kiddies, I'll still be posting about the numerous English models and fashion icons that I haven't gotten to and my experiences in the UK and over on the continent! [still didn't do a post about Paris...and now I have to do one about Belgium!! #fallingbehind]

How about a 'see-you-soon' present to cheer myself you up?
'Fabulous London.' ft. Bonnie Chen. Harper's Bazaar China. July 2012.
Just think, while I'm stuffing choccies in my carry-on and getting searched at customs, you get to enjoy some fun and ferocious 'English' pretty...

...sigh..I miss it already.

Life is a journey, and I must remember that it may be one that I am not entirely in control of; just gotta enjoy whatever experiences are thrown at me, ya dig?

Am I sad that I'm leaving? Yes. But, I'm also excited to move on and continue growing and anxious for what experiences 2013 will bring. And of course I'll definitely be back...[maybe sooner than I know?? hehe.]

So, goodbye to 'The Swinging City' and hello to 'The Big Apple.'

Wish me luck kiddies!

hmm..*sips tea*...

I'm neglecting you again, aren't I?

Lo siento kiddies... spent the weekend in Bristol by the cousin. It was interesting to say the least...haha...

...and other than the wonderful Trini food my cousin cooked, she is super inspirational...following her own dreams and goals..

Sigh. But being on a 3 hour coach..and having to pack and unpack just reminded me of how many hours in these past six months I've been in transit...

...with more traveling coming soon! Haha....

Anyways, being a blog about finding inspiration in constant uprooting, here's some nomadic pretty to start off your day..
"Trail Blazers": Daria Werbowy and Lily Donaldson in Cuzco, Peru by Mario Testino for Vogue UK. March 2008.

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine

“There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.” – Robert Louis Stevenson
“A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.” – John Steinbeck

“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller

“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” – Miriam Beard

Sometimes I find myself complaining that world travel isn't as glamorous as it's cracked up to be, having to live out of a suitcase and slum it out sometimes [and look like a hot mess toting heavy suitcases through New York City]...but honestly, it's worth it...

Maybe I'm being totally existential right now, [blame the impending return to the US] but the experiences that I have had in the past few months are ...I dunno.. live-changing, priceless, once-in-a-lifetime...and have certainly impacted me and inspired me in ways I could never have imagined *tear* ...cliché, I know.

And, while I am somewhat excited to return to the States, I will definitely, DEFINITELY miss this gloriously cultural country... [and, of course, will be back!]

ah well.. "The only thing constant is change..."...a concept that I am slowly understanding...but, as one very amazing friend rightfully said, it's not the end..just a new chapter...something new to get used keep me on my does that...

...and hopefully I look amaze doing it! Ha!

*romeo, romeo...wherefore art thou romeo...

This week's theme seems to be kiddy-related [real kiddy..not you kiddies] so why not feature buzz-worthy child of the hour...
...anyone recognize him??



Well maybe you know his parents...
...umm jealous...

If any of you guessed Romeo Beckham, you were pat yourself on the back and award yourself 100 points...

The ten year old [and second child of genetically superior Posh+Becks] has been causing a stir in the fashion world for becoming one of the faces of the new Burberry SS13 campaign, alongside fellow Brits Charlotte Wiggins and Alex Dunstan.

Top male model David Gandy praised miniBecks, claiming that he's a natural and is clearly enjoying himself, while Burberry's chief creative officer even stated that he was a joy to work with and that his fun and upbeat spirit clearly represents the collection and is evident in the photos.

I'd have to agree! He fits right in!

And if those pictures weren't enough, here's a video preview of the campaign to see just what a ball of energy Romeo was on set. where can I get one? haha...

*baby mama drama

***'s been a while..

Spent the past few days babysitting my little cousin while my aunt and uncle went back out to work. was fun to say the least...but let's just say I'm grateful he's back off to school today...haha...leaves me time to blog!

I even took a picture of me playing hide-and-seek with him!

Constance Jablonski. Numéro #117.
Aren't we cute?!

Haha..just kidding..

Anyways...while I would like to think that my cousin and I looked like this...

...the reality was probably closer to this...

*here's where I normally post some inspiring and related quotes for you to ponder about, but today lovelies, I've only got one..

“The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.” ― Johnny Depp

Ironically, they both also poo everywhere. Coincidence? #ithinknot

...I'm just being silly...I love kids. And my cousin is no exception. He constantly surprises and amazes me with just how happy he is and all that he can do.

If you have of your own, treat them like the angels that they are [even if they don't always act like it] *hides duct tape*... If you're expecting, Congrats!...and if you're patiently waiting for your own opportunity...

..join the queue!
