Geeks and nerds!

I enjoy their somewhat quirky personalities, and honestly, a few of their clothing items.

The truly interesting fashion trend that they set is socks. This preppy touch looks absolutely chic and modern. I have had my eyes on them lately.

I personally like to pair them with my sporty oxfords or lady-like shoes for a chic preppy look.

 What are your thoughts about this trend?

Black-and-White Thinking: Vermilion’s Interior Design

Black-and-white photography has a profound effect on interior design. Classy, versatile and tasteful, such photos stunningly compliment any interior space.

Black-and-white images gracing the walls of Vermilon restaurant definitely caught my eye:

Double-breasted black-navy jacket – a perfect spring gear for a woman who’s constantly on the go. Sometimes I like to sling it over my shoulders or wear as a dress.

Snowdrops: These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

One afternoon, my dad and I talked of economic downturn and entrepreneurship.

 

I’ll never forget his rich, kind voice interrupting me.

 

“You are like that “12 Months” princess, who wants snowdrops in the dead of winter.

Look at the situation more realistically,” he said.

“No, dad,” I argued. “The princess found them when she went alone into the forest. Many snowdrops surrounded her.

She learned the power of faith and the joy of searching.”

Curiosity – a wonderful thing – propels us forward to find uncommon paths

filled with freedom.

Through independence,

we see beauty we never noticed.

We discover not only snowdrops,

but an entire landscape.

 Sometimes, we feel lost and unsure

of our direction.

Then, it’s time to step back and look

at the situation from different vantage points.

This is somewhat akin to photography.

A good artist knows she has to use different angles and lenses to create the best product.

Similarly, in our lives, we need to be flexible and creative in problem solving.

 

Stay curious, keep searching and never stop believing. Your snowdrops await.
