Victoria's story made me stop in my tracks, and it made me reflect upon some important changes that have happened in my own life in the past few years. It takes a lot of courage to admit that the life that so many people are dreaming about, might not be the right one for you. But ultimately, you're the one living your life. And you should be the one to shape it. (via Victoria McGinley)

And speaking of honesty in the blog world, I really loved this essay on how things aren't always how they seem. Because yeah, life is messy and hard and not always Instagram-worthy. (via The Everygirl)

End-of-winter bright accessories

Image via Pink Peonies

I heard quite some breaking news on the radio this morning: spring begins in just one week! I honestly can't quite wrap my head around this fact, especially when to me, this winter has felt exceptionally long, tiresome and exhausting (whoever renovated an apartment in the dead of winter with everything that it encompasses - from freezing cold to unexpected snowstorms - would understand). I know that it may sound overly dramatic to some of you, but I'm truly, definitely, unwaveringly over winter, and I can't wait for the spring weather to arrive. Especially when right now, as I'm looking out my window, I can only see grey, overcast skies, sad and tired bare trees and people all bundled up against the cold.

But being all winter-depressed on you wasn't part of my plan today. Quite the contrary. To beat the last desperate winter's efforts to bring us down, I've decided to round up the most gorgeous bright and colorful accessories that will translate seamlessly into spring. Whether it's a charming little crossbody bag, a spring-infused wallet, or a colorful piece of statement jewelry, any of these items is bound to chase any last winter blues away.

one: Dorothy Perkins mini plait satchel // two: Rebecca Minkoff Love crossbody bag // three: Michael Kors Extra small Miranda tote // four: Dorothy Perkins orange flower bracelet  // five: Stephan & Co floral statement necklace // six: Kate Spade Cedar Street wallet // seven: Dorothy Perkins green polka dot umbrella // eight: Kendra Scott Dani earrings
