Hi Sweethearts!
I am so glad to “see” you again!
For all the beauty in life, it is very hard sometimes, you know?
I have been blessed with so much love in my life, but I am also a suvivor of abuse.
I have deep emotional wounds that I am trying my best to heal
in a loving and respectful manner towards my self, same as I try to be to everyone else. 
After spending days crying and grieving, I am now at a place where I am pissed off!
Who is anyone to hurt me, who are we to hurt each other?!!
I only got in touch with my anger on behalf of my self a few years ago
(and all of our wine glasses soon needed replacing after I had slammed them in a wall LOL).
I am a fierce self worth activist, I am a pacifist, I am stubborn, I am joyful, I am strong, I am voulnerable,
I am learning to stand up for my self as well as for others, I am done being a victim.
I survived. Now I am learning to live.
I am also all decked out in leopard.
Again. LOL
There you have it, the big things in life, and the smaller but really enjoyable ones.

The outfit:
The dress, H&M/reworked by me
Bolero, my design
Booties, Nilson

Let`s be kind. Let`s be the best version of our selves. Let`s be a friend.


xxx Anika

I'm so late in posting a comment here, SORRY!! It sucks that you had to go through such a hard time but, as we say, "what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger". And with the leopard print in mind, I might add: "I am woman…hear me roar!!". You are intelligent, beautiful, brave, tough and have a good, big heart. You will be alright. There's just many storms in life and we have to go through them. It's in our darkest times when the light shines the brightest. Have faith in yourself like you always do! :) ) XX B.
