Hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

I really wanted to do an outfit post today but turns out getting motivation to put together an outfit and pose for pictures is a little difficult when the place you live is slowly going underwater, literally. I live in Queensland and lately we've been having a lot of rain (not kidding). I woke up this morning to news of inland tsunami's, flash flooding, and more storms predicted in the state i live in. Many people have lost their lives, and many more are missing. The city i live in (Brisbane) has not been affected yet but we have been warned to prepare for evacuation as the river continues to rise. As i sit and write this i can hear thunder rolling in the distance, gee mother nature you're really being mean. So this post is just a little mood booster/ inspiration, showing some of my favourite images, quotes, and lyrics.

My heart truly goes out to those families who have been affected by the flooding so far. All we can do now is hope for the best, i know i will be!

  1. I'm sorry to hear about all the flooding, I heard about the flooding and I hope the rain stops soon.
    On a happier note, I love the inspirational pictures, and of course Bob Marley's great lyrics ;)
