Cruise chic? Yes, that was my lead thought when I was planning the style of my 2nd outfit for YSL beauty club. I love styling my outfits in retro and cruise chic manners when the temperatures are as high as they have been this Summer.Add some YSL beauty / make up products to a cruise chic outfit and the chances are that I’ll be feeling great and confident. 🙂
Good Monday morning!! How is everybody? I have a “deep” post coming this week, so I was thinking of keeping the Monday motivation post as light as possible. 🙂 Starting from my denim jacket which couldn’t be more funkier and uplifting outerwear, don’t you think? 😀 Continue Reading…
Good Wednesday everybody! I felt like writing just a “chit-chat” kind of post and also present you my love for these espadrilles. I have literally spent half of my Summer in them, they’re so comfy and I can combine them with almost anything in my closet. If you haven’t, I can wholeheartedly suggest you to invest in a pair of good espadrilles.
Lately, I’ve encountered some situations and people which made me often think about one specific subject: “fear”! I wonder, when did we stop being these fearless kids who would do all sorts of “crazy” things and not fear the outcome of our adventures? I’m not talking here about the vandalism or doing bad things, but you know, about doing that “one extra” push or step just to test the water and how cold it really is.
When did we all became slaves of our own brain and have started to overthink everything!? When did we started to ask so many questions and building up a feeling of fear because we can’t find the answers to all of them?
One quote always rings in my head: “What would you do and how far would you go if you wouldn’t be afraid?” That is so true and very thought provoking at the same time. Just think for a sec… How much we would all do and how far we would all get if this, anxious feel of fear wouldn’t stop us? If we wouldn’t be afraid of taking a risk in anything, from our relationships and jobs to other segments in our lives… How much more wider our horizons, experiences and better everyday life would be?
You do know, my dear readers that “fear”, such thing simply does not exist. We are the ones who bring it into our lives and we’re the ones who are such pros in making the fear stay present in our day-to-day lives. Being aware or responsible aren’t the same thing as being afraid of something. In reality, fear just disables us from thinking clear and makes us only make more bad choices faster. Fear disables us from fully ever accomplishing anything at our best or reaching those dreams and goals which we’re longing for so much…
Fear is an illusion, but I don’t know if it’s ever possible to fully let go of this illusion and live fearlessly. I believe that we can at least try our best to control it and always take a moment to breathe or take a step back before we act on anything out of fear.
So, message of this post is – NO FEAR dear people! No fear that you’ll do wrong, choose wrong, etc… Every choice which you make, every step that you take, fear not that you’re going in the right direction and walking the path you’ve been supposed to take since the day you were born.
P.S. Special thank you to my brother for taking these awesome outfit photos! 🙂
I’m wearing: Espadrilles – Chanel, Bag & bracelet – Balenciaga, Shorts, top, jacket, headband and earrings – Zara
Ding-ding! Alarm wakes me up at 7:15 am. I’m having hard times to open my eyes and get out of the bed. “Oh, but you do need to wake up Nata, otherwise the little one won’t make it to her kindergarten in time.” Darn it, ok, I’ll get up, just that I first check through Instagram a little bit. 😀 After two reminder wake up calls, I finally get up and storm off to the kitchen to make breakfast, wake up the little one, get her ready for the kindergarten and wish her a great day as she takes off. This is how all of my mornings start during the working week. Do I even need to mention how much I appreciate laid-back and no alarm clock weekends?
Wooosh! That’s the sound of this week flying by! It’s been a very intensive week and I’m barely holding all of the “hooks” in my hands. There’s so much to do, work on, fulfil and I’m not even going to start with complaining on how my flat looks like a whole zoo of animals ran through it… Several times! 😀
I woke up to a sunny day, so I’ll try to get the most out of the sunshine and outdoor activities today. I work indoors a lot, every single day, but I always make sure to find at least an hour in a day to spend my time outside, walking, breathing in the fresh air and such. I have some errands to run and one of them is the visit to the Farmer’s Market for fresh veggies and fruits, so it’s a perfect excuse to walk there instead of having to drive there. I’ll easily get that one hour of “movement” in by doing this. 🙂
“What if money was no object?!” What if it wasn’t as important as we think it is… ? What would you do? Who would you be? This question has really shaken me for couple of times, latest being this weekend.
How would you spend your life if money was no object?
Who doesn’t love a good, old kimono? I feel like every time when Spring arrives, I rediscover my love for kimonos since they’re so easy but a very stylish piece to wear. Just throw it over a simple tee, pair of jeans and you’re good to go. If you decide to “up” your look with some statement jewellery, you’ll def. give your simple, casual outfit a very unique touch.
Aaaand, the sun is back in LA!! Yay! That rainy day was very well appreciated but I just have to be a little bit selfish and say that I totally didn’t miss the cold and rainfall. Sunny, warm weather is what I need the most right now. Finland made me have this HUGE and constant craving for natural D vitamin. 🙂 It’ll take time to “balance” it all out. 😀
