Technology & Society


It's unfortunate to say that our current society is growing apart from humans and drowning itself in the coldness of technology. Sometimes I wish I was born in the past and experience simple things such as to be anxiously waiting by the phone for that special guy to call me... Nowadays some might even break up with you on a text message...



The cruel reality of our current society is based on speed and power.
With such fundamentals, selfishness  has nested itself into people's relationships.
People have forgotten the basics of a true friendship.
Everyone wants the latest phone, everyone wants to show the world they carry a beautiful life but behind doors they are empty and lonely.


 ( my great aunt)

My father once told me that if I was unable to count my friends in one hand that perhaps I had too many acquaintances... I remember that back in high school I use to worry about HOW MANY friends I had but as I've grown I've realised that friends have an end...
I've realised that as you grow your social circle starts to shrink...
People care much more about updating their Facebook status or how many people are following them on Twitter rather than being concerned about those around them...

(my grandmother)

As a fashion blogger it's hard or even impossible not to be connected to social networks....
But in whatever field you're working, you should not let technology feed you...
It's an outstanding tool that throughout time has been refined but remember those around you.
