What’s good my people?
For many of you today is a sad story as you return back to work following the Easter bank holiday weekend. However for me on this glorious day, I’m 22 going on to 23 (Jordan age, bang bang). Yup today is my born day and I’m particularly excited because I feel like I have conquered and accomplished many things to be happy and proud about in my 23 years of life.
So a little back story, I recently graduated from university with a Bachelors Degree in Nursing and currently I work full-time, in a central London hospital. Finally now that I have finished education, I can focus and work on my passion in the creative sneaker industry, starting with this blog. Personally once I graduated I said to myself
“do what makes you happy, you are only in your 20s once and this is the only time you can selfishly take risks”
(lool well responsible risks). Having this mentality, one day I got a camera and started taking pictures of my sneakers and started writing posts.
I don’t want to talk to much today, all I want to do inspire someone. There is probably something you have always dreamed of doing and I’m here to say take that leap. Because at the end of the day nobody wants to be in their 70s reminiscing on should haves and could haves. As long as you radiate and internalise positive energy everyday, within yourself everyday will feel like its your birthday.
CONVERSE x COMME DES GARÇONS PLAY
So whilst at university there was this cool dude I knew called Dan, he wore the first ever pair of Converse x CDG sneakers I had ever seen in my life (they were a white base, black heart version of these). It was honestly love at first sight (not with him, but with his sneakers, hello Dan). Ever since, I searched for a very, very long time for his specific pair, but I could not find them anywhere within a reasonable price (heartbreak). Last month I found them on the Selfridges website in my size (UK size 6/ EU 39), with only one pair left in stock, I knew they were meant only for me.
Converses are known to produce casually versatile sneakers, so when discovering they collaborated with Comme Des Garçons, the concept of the casual converse became prestigious and breath taking. Walking down the street these sneakers automatically catch eyes with their loud white heart exterior on a faded black base. The design of this specific pair allows one to dress up or dress down, depending on the occasion.
These sneakers add a splash of high fashion in to your wardrobe, especially without breaking your purse/ wallet as they were a quality, affordable price of £79.99 (resale price is a bit crazy). For many people these may be an extravagant sneaker to rock on a daily basis, however sometimes as I said before take that leap and jump out of your comfort zone.
Have an awesome day guys, since it’s a special day i’ll end today’s post with one of my favourite quotes of all time, that I try to live by everyday….
“If you’re not making someone else’s life better, then you are wasting your time. Your life will become better by making other people’s lives better.” – Will Smith
