Despite the fact that the song, "Diamonds" by Rihanna is most certainly about love at first sight, I take the chorus as more as a personal challenge, especially in the face of un-shineworthy moments. I was particularly proud of my outfit this day...the high & low mix of wool with sequins and the edginess of a backwards cardigan all paired with ladylike pearls and t-straps. However, upon leaving my apartment, I took a tumble going down the stairs, which left me with a rip in my beloved shoes and a rolled ankle (currently icing & elevating). Thankfully, I have an awesome shoe guy and a job where I can put my (seemingly) world ending catastrophes in perspective and provide resources and empathy to those who need it. I might not always be perfectly shiny, in spite of my best efforts, but I do make a difference.
