life is her playground.
if passion has a name, i think the name that would perfectly fit would be Nikky, the girl behind simplechaoticlife. i've been wanting to make a post about her blog for quite sometime already, since her old blog days (to be clearer), but i was a little too late becuase she already deleted it.
just a few months ago, right after the fashion show that Yenny (Nikky's sister) invited us to, i asked why Nikky deleted her blog when in fact, it's too cool/inspiring and one of the blogs i look forward to read. Yenny replied that her sister made a new blog and so i asked for the link. since then, i've been looking forward to her posts.. again.
if the title of this post still didn't enlighten you to what i'm trying to tell you since the very first sentence, let me say it in other words: the girl is bonkers for life! her passion for her family, for living, traveling, food, art, music, discovering and learning new things, and taking risks awed me and her writing never ceases to amuse me. she's got the talent in writing that makes you feel you're with her in every adventure she posted on her blog. she's also one of the few people who taught/inspired me (through her words) to be grateful to whatever you have and be a lover of life as well.
btw, she lived in Paris before but now she's already staying in Barcelona. good news to all those who loves Paris as much as i do and to the other wanderlusters out there: she still writes about Paris in her new blog as much as she writes about the many places she'd been to. and what's more inspiring about her is that, despite everything she accomplished/done, she stayed grounded. you may wonder why i can say these kinds of things even though i don't know her personally, but let me just tell you, try reading the words she'd thoughtfully used in her blog, you'll never think otherwise. and i guess it runs in their family because her sister is one of the humblest people i've encountered in my 20 years of existence.
just a piece of advice, follow Nikky through her blog (i'm not saying be the stalker type!!) because you'll be doing yourself a favor. you'll learn a thing or two.. or even more! :)
i think i should probably shut up now and let you wander in her blog, yes?
“the world's a big place. you can't do or be everything, nor should you. life is bigger than any one man. but when you read about other people's lives, when you read their stories, you catch a glimpse of a world bigger than your own. you may never travel a hundred miles from where you were born, but if you read stories, you'll get to see the entire world.”
