Sunday Reads / i-D - The Activist Issue


My first encounter with i-D magazine was quite late. In the first year of uni, one of the lecturers mentioned the book about how this magazine became popular and how it all started. It seems quite late, huh? But since I grew up in Lithuania , we never had the access to cool and quirky international magazines (there was probably a way to get them online, but I was never too bothered), so this was a new thing for me, and oh my! Why have I never heard about it before? Starting with it's amazing history (It was started in the 80's as a fanzine and it covered all of the topics related to youth culture) and how it evolved into this amazing, inspiring magazine. I always try and get it, when I can, even if it means that I have to spend my last student pounds, but it is always worth it. Like this time, I just couldn't get my hands of it. It is all about the activists (I've always been one in my heart) and our generation! Oh, let's not forget the extra cool Natalie Westling, the fashion game changer and badass redhead! I felt absolutely inspired, even reading the first two articles! I just can't stop! But, I decided to keep it for the flight next week, and trust me - it ain't easy!

 About a month ago, I got two disposable cameras at boots. So I captured all of the precious moments until I completely forgot what was even in the camera. I finally got them done. How amazing it is, to remember small everyday things that you may have already forgotten?

Epiphany

Epiphany - [ih - pif - uh - nee] - a literary work or section of a work presenting, usually symbolically, such a moment of relegation and insight.

Is this word too sensational for a blog post? Even if it is, it just perfectly describes the way I feel right now. One day when I was going home after my internship, I had a sudden realisation that everything I was working for so hard, has finally started to pay of. I think I am in a very comfortable position in my life right now, I feel more confident, I know what I want, I don't stress out about my future too much and most importantly, I learnt how to look into change positively. I think it is because of the amount of a uncomfortable situations that I had to deal with recently, and just get out of my comfort zone, taught me how to be more confident and comfortable in my own skin. It is definitely a learning process and sometimes I still have days where I don't believe in myself at all but I try to realise that it is just a bad day and not make it into a bad week or bad life, because it would be a massive step back. This feeling gave me creative freedom and I finally got rid of my creative block, that I had for so long, I couldn't look at any of my recent work anymore. Get excited for new projects coming on your way!
Have a nice week!

Key items



I pulled this outfit together, when me and Ruta were going for a lunch together. I just wore the simplest, staple pieces like black jeans and leather jacket and spiced it up slightly with darker lip.
The weather is finally getting warmer, so it makes me feel more positive about everything that is happening in my life. I really really need a break from all of the work, that I've been doing recently but I know it's worth it. Oh, and I finally booked a holiday next month! The excitement levels are high!
How's life?
