The Dreamer Who Hugged The World In Pointes

"Unexpected intrusions of beauty. That is what life is."

I love to explore the world and hug its beauty. I love to caress the roots of the plants and trees, and send pollen grains into my nostrils. I would slip my feet onto the depths of my toe shoes and dance myself towards the forest. There, I would play with darling creatures that nobody even knew they existed. This is the life I wanted.

I told my heart to live with the label I insisted to myself so here is my first "Ballerina on Fire" post for twenty thirteen! :)) I'll try to do this more often not for the sake of telling the world how beautiful ballet is (though this is my advocacy), but for the sake of self-expression). :"D

I don't want to detach my body from its real purpose of existing which is ballet and dance despite the fact that I've stopped taking my lessons for almost three years now. I actually miss being classical and performing in front of thousands of people in different theaters. :"( Breaking it and dancing ballet with modern and hiphop music is far different from the real beauty and peace I feel with the classic though it's still a beauty.

My grandmother gave me this lovely, flowy skirt which belonged to my mom and I love it so much! It's very interesting how we can still wear the clothes from the past decades and still look lovely! The magic of our era! :))

My vintage gold bicycle necklace from the ever so lovely and fabulous online shop, Rings and Tings, pulled my look! I swear this necklace is such a beauty! I love it so much that I'm seeing myself wearing it everyday until it's worn out! But I don't want to break it so I'll just wear it every other day. haha!

This wrap-around headband is handmade and available in my shop, Milky Meadow! I hope you can drop by and shop! hehe~

I am in love with Bloch since the day my toes touched its depths. It's very comfortable! I also love the sound it makes every time I dance. Definitely the best brand for me right now. :)) Too bad though, this baby is almost worn-out as I've posted here. huhu. I need to get a new one :(
