Personal blog from the girl who runs SuitDistracted. -- I love a jumble of things: pretty whimsy and gothic landscapes. K-Pop and YA books. Menswear. Superheroes. You'll just have to see for yourself.
The niece of the great Mongol leader, Kubla Khan, Princess Khutulun was described by Marco Polo as the greatest warrior in Khan’s army. She told her uncle she would marry any man who could wrestle her and win. If they lost they had to give her 100 horses.
She died unmarried with 10,000 horses."

This is how I want to die. Unmarried, with 10,000 horses. There is no other way now.
Rich and alone is a perfectly good way to go.
