"Cherish every moment, even if you lose it in the end, don't let it become a regret."
Since coming home, I've been quite busy everyday shopping, building a new hamster home, hanging with friends for the last time, etc. I'm trying to make the most of my week back before I am off. I know that once I leave for NY, I won't be back home til the day before my move in day. This week is basically my last week living the "life I knew." Despite being so busy, I have been doing a lot of thinking about things. I'm just the type of person who thinks way too much for her own good. I've just been thinking back on my life, where I am now, what I have to do, and the future. It's hard not too. I feel like big changes are ahead.
Recently I've talking to a friend about this who quickly came to tell me that I am over thinking and I should try to live in the moment instead. That I need to make the most of each experience I have and not worry about what the future will bring. I am excited, but super scared by the changes that will come. I feel like I could gain so much, but the thought of losing what I have now is painful. That is when I came across the quote from above. It actually comes from an asian drama called "The Way We Were." The drama is similar to another one on my too watch list called "In A Good Way." Both these dramas I feel depict what I am feeling and I'm quite interested to give them a watch! I'll talk more about these shows at the bottom.
When I got home last Thursday, I was surprised by a few packages that had come for me while I was away. One of those packages was from Eshakti. Right before I left, I noticed I had an email from Eshakti asking me if I wanted to cooperate with them. I took a look around and fell in love with a lot of the dresses that they sold. (I am a huge dress person!) I said yes and as I picked out my dress, I noticed that on the site, they had given us an option to personally customize the dress that we chose! Shipping for the dress was about 2 and a half weeks which was great especially for it being customized!
For our dresses, you could start out by picking a standard size ranging from 0-36w or you could go ahead and type in eight of your own measurements. After that, you were asked to give your height. I actually really like the idea of asking for height since I've noticed that a lot of clothing seem to be made for taller people. Being on the shorter side makes it hard for me to ensure that the clothing will fit me correctly since I'm proportioned differently. If that isn't enough customizing for you, Eshakti also gives you the option to choose your dress length, from mini to calf length, as well as the length of your sleeve! If your dress had embellishments or pockets, you were even given the option to remove them if you pleased! How crazy is that?!
Nautical Anchor Embellished Dress. When I first opened the package for the dress, I quickly loved it. It looked exactly like it did online from the color to the design! The material that it was made of was also comfortable and of good quality! My favorite thing about this dress had to be the color and design. The combination of red and gold is one I find quite flattering on me and the anchor embroidery and adorable anchor belt stole my heart!
For this dress, I opted to go along with the sizes rather than measure myself. I originally wanted the dress to be completely customized, but then I realize that I am terrible at measuring myself and that I might mess it up. I felt that for me, it was safer to get a pre-made size rather than make it myself lol. Plus, my body tends to fluctuate a bit, so I know that this dress will always fit me .. hopefully. =) I did however choose to put in my height so the dress would be the proper length! The dress I knew was on the longer side and though I had the option to make it shorter, I chose to keep it a bit longer since I rarely have longer dresses. This dress also looked too classy to be made into a mini!
Along with this dress, I chose to wear a pair of simple black flats and an infinity bracelet. You may be able to tell from my pictures, but when I was taking pictures today, the weather wasn't quite cooperating. I had gotten all my gear outside and then it started drizzling! I was determined to get my photos done though so I opted to grab an umbrella to put on top of my camera as I snapped pictures! =)
Flats- Forever 21
Back to the two shows that I mentioned in the beginning of my post. I definitely want to try and find time to watch both of them!
The Way We Were talks about 5 friends who met in college and we follow them and as their relationships change over the course of 16 years from 1998-2014. I've seen a few trailers for this drama and I have to say that this drama seems very realistic (especially when compared to other dramas) and I could see myself in one of the characters positions right now. The quote from above comes from this drama!
In a Good Way is about a women who is know grown up, but chooses to return back to the place that changed her life. The summary of this drama quotes that "Most people can pinpoint a time in their lives that sets their future trajectory which may be very different from what they had envisioned." I can also say that this has happened to me already and I see myself changing in a different way than I imagined!
I need to find time to watch both these dramas!! =)
Have you heard of Eshakti before?
Are you a fan of this dress?
What is your opinion on my quote and the two dramas I am dying to watch? =)
