WRITING + PHOTOGRAPHY | just another dream

just another dream

golden hour of work nights and traffic lights
honking horns and pink martini skies
who notices the golden gate or city sights
here the dream is not in front but behind our eyes

a dream of the red stars along the street
constellations  gaze at the sky scape  view 
at the spotlight hidden souls beneath their feet 
and know they're all just dreamers of dreams not come true

days and nights in a soft pastel glow
takeout food and undefinable mood
what it all means, I'm sure I don't know
maybe someday soon a dream will come true

everything 's rolling by but I stand still
nostalgia for something untouched, it holds me back
maybe it's fear and it's held me forever
maybe it's doubt and it always will

piano keys, a low whistled tune
a new dream, and new dream and it's of you
like dominos we tumble to the rhythm 
of another dream that can't come true

my voice unfiltered, red seats unfilled
burning as the petals of a neon rose
like a daze but too vivid, the romance killed
the script complete, the curtain closed

slumped silhouette on the smokey stage 
playing our theme in purple and blue
minor chords, then bittersweet resolve
music to a dream that won't come true

golden hour of work nights and stage lights 
I’m someone special now, don't ask me who 
stuck in the traffic of my own tired mind 
thinking maybe life’s a dream that wont come true.

maybe this is all 

just another dream

that won't come true.

un abbraccio,
kathryn 💋

FASHION | Favorite Oscar's Looks

Hi Friends!

      After watching the Oscars the other night I got the (unoriginal💁🏻) idea to make a post about allll my favorite looks of the 2017 event. Oh, and by the way, who else was seriously awkward-ed when the whole Best Picture moment totally flopped? 😑😑😑 I mean... eek. 
      Anyway, as I was looking through red carpet photos, a few gorgeous looks from past Oscars popped up too. I just couldn't get over the beauty of some of them so I decided to instead make this post on the Oscars Best Dressed since like 2010. 
So here we go.

Ruth Nega

Here is by far my favorite look of the night. This dress😍

Emma Stone 

This is Emma in 2013 and I am obsessed with everything about this look.

Cate Blanchett 

Kiera Knightly


Hailee Steinfeld

Olivia Munn 

I wish I was wearing this right now 😍

Natalie Portman

Sleek and Classy.

Aula'i Cravalho

Her performance was just as on point as her dress.

Makeup Looks

Felicity Jones


Lilly Collins

Alicia Vikander                               

 Olivia Munn

Natalie Portman

Janelle Monáe

I love Hollywood culture and I always have. I've forever been intrigued by it and wanted to be in that world myself as a singer, and I still do. Since I was a little girl I've had this burden and love for celebrities- these souls in the spotlight,  many blinded by darkness. These, living, dying proof that you can live your dream and gain the whole wold and lose your own soul. These, shining on silver screens and glimmering, fading on the golden, abused stage of fame.  And these, who's lives are far different than what they might appear. 

Humans living, dying. 
Like fireworks we have our moment of brilliance, our spark and our noise. A fleeting second to mean something before our glory tumbles to ash. 
Our own light is temporary. 
 So we must ask ourselves:
With whose light shall we shine?
And how bright are we brave enough to be...

I hope you guys enjoyed this post. What was your favorite part of The Oscars? Mine was definitely John Legend's stellar performance. I'm in love with La La Land😍 Do you have favorite Oscars looks?
