san francisco, style, fashion, travel, lifestyle curated by Ariel Tzu-Chi

Fashion is about projecting where you're going in life.

Therefore, life is fashion, fashion is style.

That's the lifestyle I am producing. 
 

風尚是一種生活品味的投射

因此生活即是風尚,風尚便是品味

這就是我想實踐的生活方式

That Kind of Girl


You know it is real when everyone around you keeps telling you, "you look much happier now". Happier? I don't think so; one can never get happier once she set foot on the sad sack - she only gets older. Well, I always say it as a joke, but I think it's only because I am much more confident than ever. I am absolutely speed-growing on the rail of self-sufficient; knowing when to call it and make a change when things are not going the right direction. I certainly know how to treat people with respect and appreciate things that come in every encounter. I definitely try to live properly and substantially because I understand how precious l am, and there is no time to waste in this fleeting moment of life.

I've met a person who reassured me that it's okay to be me. I knew all of that but I wasn't never fully understood as an individual; thus occurred a overwhelming amount of doubts. This person truly, madly, and deeply accept me as who I am, how I am, and what I can become. He made me realize that I have so much possibilities lie within me. "Thank you for being so genuine and honest as you are since the beginning", he once told me.

朋友說我變了。看起來充滿自信,臉部線條變得很柔和。好像年紀越大,成長的速度變得更快了。因為跌倒過再站起來了,因為懂了什麼叫得體得宜,明白了什麼是自信,學會了什麼叫勇敢,於是知道沒有浪費時間之必要,在對的時間知道該做什麼樣的事。

交往了一個很不一樣的人,真誠地珍惜我就是我,總是讓我知道我有多好,讓我覺得自己還有好多可能,覺得自己好廣,好深,擁有好堅韌的核心。

「謝謝妳是這麼一位善良美好又堅強的人,從第一天開始,始終都這麼真誠。」他傳了這首歌,說是一聽就想起我的歌。


Each day get by I move on a little. One relationship after another must have led me knowing how to dispense love at this point of my life. I cannot be fearless no more. I never need to chase after relationships no more. Because I've practiced to value myself over the other person - my own pace of living, loving, and giving - what I can offer is obvious and certain. I have detached myself from relationships but join it lightheartedly when it comes to me at the right timing, with someone I can endure and love. 

No I am not being blindly romantic, I am simply a tiny girl with the biggest attitude who will always choose to love, who would not hold back. I am only willing to believe that there is a promise land in each single person and that should be the core of us. If you understand the value of yourself, you can be your very own 100%. Never be a 50% and seek for another 50%; BE 100%, so you'll be able to attract another 100%. Together, you make 200% - you bring each other to the fullest. I am just that kind of girl.

長大了以後談戀愛好像再沒辦法像小時候那樣無所畏懼的一無所有。因為瞭解擁有屬於自己的生活步調有多重要,所以即便再愛,那麼多的我們也還是有一部分的自己是獨立的,不依附感情的不移。是年紀越大越懂的人生韻味吧。

我還是願意相信在每個人的心裡,始終有一遍乾淨的淨土。充滿信心、意志、和溫柔。不,我不是純愛主義者,也並非人性本善派,只是不管再多傷痕累累也還是願意去愛。我不願意相信沒有黑暗面的人,因為每個隱晦的迷失,都在等待著光。像隧道盡頭的那個出口。用盡全力去愛的人,不怕黑。我就只是這樣的女生。
