DAY TRIPPER



WEARING: Splendid Jacket, Melissa Araujo Crop Top, American Apparel Leather Skirt & Bra and Aldo Shoes.

“It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.”  Gabriel Garcia Marquez. 
To be in LA is such a great experience. Every time I am here it means something different to me but the  purpose stays the same: To follow my dreams. I love it here, regardless of some of the plastic people. This is a place where you can see your dreams coming true. Like Marquez said in the quote above (he is one of my favourite writers) dreams keep us young, and alert.

I am so focused right now, so inspired by the people I met this week from CEO's, to VP's to creative directors to the little people (me included). Taking risks, speaking up and following your dreams are the best pieces of advice that I can give myself right now. I am not naive and I know not all dreams come true; but I am hungry for it and I won't give up easily. Yes, sharing dreams and creativity, one blog post at a time. Photos by another dreamer, the very talented: Particle Observer. Not only do you get to see his beautiful photos, he just uploaded a new song.

  5. GGM is my favourite author and this rings so true to me right now !! So proud of you Melissa and what you are doing with the blog and going to LA to pursue your dreams. I've pretty much had it with waiting for things to happen in London and if I have to fork out money to go to NYC from time to time then so be it. Because "if we don't follow our dreams, we will spend the rest of our lives working for someone who did" -Topaz
