September. Oh, The Memory Lane.

Have I ever told you about my love for memories?

It's hard to make a difference between living in the past and loving the past. Sometimes, I just like to sit and reminisce about what has come previously, the things that have shaped me over the years. I love memories, I love thinking about stuff that's far gone, I love remembering the good and, even the bad times.

That's why September's theme will be all about revisiting the memory lane. It blows my mind to think that, a year ago, I was just arriving to Seoul and starting a new chapter of my life. Wow, those were good times, really. Just thinking about that brings a smile to my face. Once, I was talking to my Danish roommate and, I remember, we were really happy (I can't seem to place the reason, maybe it was the day we went to Costco for the first time) and we talked about how we were never going to be the exact same guys that were standing in that room, at that particular moment, ever again, and it was bittersweet (more sweet, though).

More stories like that will fill this month, along with the usual stuff: outfit shoots, me styling others, life journals, the book club, cool collabs with different brands AND bloggers. It will be pretty cool. The illustration is a direct reference to a postcard, I love those things so, of course, you have to look at the front, enjoy it, and then read the back to discover a nice playlist. Hope you enjoy it and keep coming back for more.
¿Alguna vez les he contado sobre mi amor por los recuerdos?


Es difícil marcar la diferencia entre vivir en el pasado y amar el pasado. A veces, me gusta sentarme y remembrar sobre lo que ha sucedido previamente, las cosas que me han forjado a través de los años. Amo los recuerdos, amo pensar en cosas que se acabaron hace mucho, amo recordar lo bueno y, también, los momentos malos.

Por eso el tema de semtiempre se trata de visitar el baúl de los recuerdos. Me vuela los sesos pensar que, hace un año, estaba llegando a Seoul e iniciando un nuevo capítulo de mi vida. Wow, esos fueron buenos tiempos, en serio. Sólo pensar en eso me hace sonreír. Una vez, hablaba con mi compañero de cuarto danés y, me acuerdo, estábamos muy felices (ni sé bien por qué, quizá fue el día que fuimos a Costco por primera vez) y hablábamos de cómo nunca íbamos a hacer las mismas personas que estaban paradas en esa habitación en ese momento particular y fue muy agridulce (más dulce que agrio).

Más historias de ese estilo llenarán el mes, junto con las cosas tradicionales: fotos de atuendos, yo estilando a otros, diarios de vida, el club del libro, colaboraciones padres con diferentes marcas Y bloggers. Va a estar bueno. La ilustración es una referencia directa a una postal, amo esas cosas así que, por supuesto, tienen que disfrutar el frente y leer la parte trasera para descubrir una lista de canciones bonita. Espero que lo disfruten y vuelvan por más.
Love always,
Henry.
