Back on track

It's been almost a year since I did not blog. I missed the blogosphere, checking my favourite blogs and interacting with readers and bloggers from every part of the world. I decided finally to get back, it's something that I really like, I missed the fact i could express myself the way I want. A lot of stuff changed since my last blog, good stuff, bad stuff, interesting stuff.. I'm writing right now to give you an update about my life, what i experienced, how I grew and what I expect now from life or more the way I want my life to be. I've been single now for 9 months, now after a relationship that lasted almost 7 years, it's been rough but liberating; I had to choose do I want to live my life the way I want or do I have to stick to immature choices that i made when I was a teenager. After discovering that he cheated in me and after going thru the whole humiliation in front of every person that i know, I finally realized (really quick though after a couple of weeks)  that it was actually a blessing, I had the chance to choose my path, my life, my future instead of just do what I'm supposed to do. I started going out more often, started socializing again just for the sake of it, not trying to pick up boys or something. Almost (actually it was really it) I was discovering myself again, ,with him i felt trapped, bitter and with no clear ambitions. Now 9 months after, I can really assess what I've done with my life. I focused more on my career, I got promoted now I support the marketing and sales operations for the company that I work for , actually I made the choice to skip the financial career that I was predestined to for IT, as I decided to be single and to embrase my new life even after the pityful senario that he tried to make out to convince me to take him back, I'm now eager to get the most of the life that is given to me, I'm believing in myself again, I'm believing  in the bright future that I will have.
Now to the good news, I have a job that is so time consuming and so interesting that I'm feeling that anything is possible, I visited the US for the first time and went to San Francisco yeyeah!

I'm trying to get back on track and start working on my thesis again. I hope I can get that done, it's not that easy i have to admit that but I'm so hopeful and optimistic about my future.

Back to fashion talk now, I have to start doing fashion blogging again and it's not that simple to take outfits shoots without help (aka boyfriend) but I will start taking pictures of the outfits (not the worn version until i come up with a solution).
So I'm hoping to get really serious about that.
I'll leave ya'all with some of my favourite pictures of SF
Haight Ashbury and then right in front of the Dead Gorgeous House

I hope you will hear from me really soon!

  1. What a great story! I can totally relate, my b/f of 5 years cheated on me (apparently throughout the whole relationship). It sucks, no way around it, but it was honestly the best thing that ever happened to me! I am a completely different person and I love the new me so much better! That was 7 years ago and it still affects the person I am, but in a good way. I am able to see good because I experienced bad. You sound like you are on the right track, I can't wait to hear what you have to blog about :) Good luck!!

    P.S. I love SF, such an amazing city!

  2. Sometimes it takes a major negative thing to help realize that what we were doing was actually negative. I am glad to hear that you are doing well and excited that you are back to blogging. It kills time, and energy as well as allowing you to express yourself any way you want.
    I look forward to your blog posts!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog:-)

  3. I just found your blog! I am so sorry to hear about your relationship, but glad that you have an amazing job to focus on. Breakups are hard. I went through a divorce and wrote about it in my blog. That was actually the most read post since I started my blog. Thousands of page views, so I guess many can relate to that. And you guessed it, he cheated. Thank goodness you found out the true character of your ex before you married him.

    You look radiant and I am loving the San Francisco photos. San Francisco is a great city. About your photos, why don't you get a tripod and use a self timer and in the meantime, maybe you can connect with some bloggers where you live and that would solve your photo challenges. You could do each others photos:-)

  4. I am so proud of you! You are so inspiring to women who are stuck in crappy situations with a boy. That was once me and I was so happy to get out of it and to find myself. You are so beautiful!
