Tropical safari

February 27, 2017

Monday morning… My alarm clock didn’t beep yet and there’re almost two hours until I have to wake up. Do I still try to sleep a bit or do I get up and enjoy some “me time” which I haven’t been indulging in for what it feels like forever? Hm… Screw that princess, beauty sleep, I’m getting up!

I took a warm, long shower, did put on a green clay face mask, made my hair and did my make up… I’ve put a girly dress on and poured a cup of tea for myself. That’s when it hit me (oh the enlightening moments which always happen either early in the morning or in the middle of the night): I’m so thankful and happy to be able to enjoy those small things in life… The most valuable and precious moments are made of those, “insignificant” moments which so often just slide by without us giving them the value that they deserve.

I’m happy to have a clean and warm water running, I have a home, I have clothes, I even have a possibility to make a choice what I want to prepare for my breakfast and there are so many people out there who don’t have even those, smallest luxuries in life known as human rights. Every human should have right to at least have this minimum much in their every day lives.

Friend of mine had recently traveled to a 3rd world country and photographs from there simply left me speechless. It was hard to believe the way how some people have to live because that’s the only way and the circumstances they know of. At the same time, they need so little to be happy and thankful, compared to the glamour and materialistic dependency of the Western world that we are living in.

Of course that I do have and do like fine things in life, I love to live well and dine well, I like to travel and I like to do all sorts of stuff that does include Visa payments, but when I really think about things that keep me happy and fulfilled for a long time, none of them are materialistic and if I would have to I could totally live without them.

Ok, enough of deep talk for this Monday morning. 🙂 I would like to wish you all a great working week ahead and to keep your spirits up high. Always remember:”There are people who are happy with way much less than what you have.”

I’m wearing: Bag (HERE) , Sneakers (HERE), Bomber jacket (SIMILAR), Ring and bracelet (HERE)

    Ah you have my dream bag!!! I’ve been looking for that everywhere in a blush or black, I’m still undecided. Would you say its a heavy bag or not? I have the alexander wang rockie and that weighs a ton so I’m looking for a major upgrade soon!
    Have a Stylin’ Day!

      Thank you Karen! I have this same bag in black too and it doesn’t weigh much at all. I def. love the size and shape
      of it as well as the leather, it’s very “user-friendly” as it doesn’t get scratched so easily.

    So true! It’s the little things in life we take for granted…daily privileges that many don’t get to enjoy. And in many cases it seems that the more people have the less satisfied and happy they are.
    And love those sneakers! Have a great Monday!
