Saturday morning on my way to work a stranger walks by and says ‘Good Morning’ with a gentle smile and gives me a lovely compliment. How beautiful is that? Early in the week a women also exchange smiles with me and complimented my sparkly nails! I need to start my mornings like that on the way to work more often. I just felt instantly positive and it put me in the right mind set for the rest of the day, especially when you’re tired. Compliments just make you feel that little extra special. So tomorrow throw around a few smiles and compliments and see how you feel. Not everyone loves working on a Saturday, but the day does fly by quickly because we’re all looking forward to the evening stuck by the bar with all the alcohol!!

As they say time does fly by when you’re having fun. I’ve had the best week so far and it’s the first week of January, yay! Bring on the year, please. I’m so thankful for the energy of my company this year. It’s nice when you have a mature company to work with, who loves to work hard/enjoys what they are doing. We want a drama free year! Time is too short, so just prepare, work hard and you’re set for the rest of the year.

I’ve had some exciting ideas of things i want to do whilst touring, so i feel like i don’t just put all my energy on one thing. You know us women love to keep our hands busy. I also think you should try signing up or learning a few new skills.

Driving license – Yes, i still haven’t learnt yet. I just didn’t need too because i was always working in different places/countries, also there is so much public transport in London. I need to get it done regardless, its just something that will always come in handy in life. A friend and i discussed trying to learn whilst we are in different cities and take the test whilst when we are in more of a quiet city. I mean, I’ve heard taking your test in London isn’t the easiest at times. GOT TO GET IT DONE.

Taking up a fashion stylist online course – I’ve researched some courses online and I’ve found a decent priced course that looked extremely interesting. I’m not sure when i will sign up, but once i’ve paid i will just have to do it, right? I would always advise you to keep that brain busy, learning as many skills as you can because even if you think you have no other exciting skills, you do. You’re just sacred to do something new,different and exciting. Grow, its so important to always keep going. It’s the way of life.

Committing to a gym schedule – Most of you are most likely signed up to a gym but don’t actually go, or you go a couple of times a month and end up wasting money. That’s exactly what i did last year, i admit it. So this year, I’m thinking to join a gym that is all of the UK and is open 24 hours. The main thing about the gym is keeping to a schedule, giving myself 3 days a week to work out; that’s all you need; and then making sure i stick to those designated days so then it will just become a norm. Let’s commit.

That’s a few ideas that has been floating around in that crazy mind of mine and I’m sure you’ve had a few things you’ve wanted to do, but you just need to get down to actually doing it.

My collection choices.

The first two are from Asos and they are both completely different, of course. We have a press night at each of our venues on tour and I’m always looking for dresses. This is an option as its classic but still trendy and dark. The warm black velvet texture bringing that vampire feel out to the off the shoulder boob tube sexy look.

The snazzy jumper is too cool for school, the tiger details reminds me of the Gucci collection out at the moment, the two toned colours is what makes this jumper unique.Printed jumpers are so necessary.

Lastly, we have the monki new in collection two piece co-ord. The Metallic brave look. Can you dare to wear it? So shiny! The jumper is £30 and the leggings is £25. Definitely a way to enter 2018.


 

Thank you for reading and enjoy your evening. Don’t forget to smile!

WE LIVE LIKE ROBOTS

7F24F3A0-75A0-47EE-8264-FDE9A230E134

We all have times when we get really busy and we get a sudden rush of having to do a million of things at the same time. If you spread your work out; breath and take your time with everything; you will most likely get more things done than rushing, panicking and trying to get it done all at once. Really try to chill out and relax when you have a lot on your plate. One step at a time. Trust me, i put that into practice today and most likely the whole tour because i have to cover two main roles in the musical I’m doing (Matilda). Find that calm state you think you don’t have, especially as women as we have so much hormones running through our bodies. We don’t want an easy life.

I love people watching, especially on the tube or at coffee shops. People are so interesting and they all have their own story and individual life going on, it’s mad. Everyone on their own journey. I find it so therapeutic wondering what’s going on in their tiny little brains. We all look like robots sometimes when we pace about from door to door and totally forget to take our time to breathe in that air that surround us. I think everyone naturally feels tired in the morning, but why moan and depress ourself when we can just embrace it for what it is and then try to rest in the evening. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I’m shattered but i got no where complaining and dwelling on it. So now, I’m really trying to find that relaxed state and just eating the right things when i feel this way. Even when i know i have some time to rest i think it will be wise to close my eyes for a couple of minutes and just be. Then your day off arrives and you can either start the day with your schedule and then get on that sofa and zone out for a bit. There is always time.

SMILE AND SIT BACK, NO ONE IS RUSHING YOU

We always have to be somewhere at certain at a time. I would say just set your alarm early or find a way where you can chill and do what’s best for you before you have to reach your destination/work. Just find a calm before you have to start challenging that amazing brain of ours. If I have to get up early i’m going to really try waking up earlier to put some good things in my body instead of rushing out without any fuel and starting work on an empty. Lets try to build and create our own life we want to live, really trying to be in control what we do instead of the way of life forcing us to get into that boring routine where we just end up all in a terrible mess.


Deep post today. I just feel it’s really important to make yourself feel good, right?!

Here’s some new in ASOS items i loved today.

How do you feel about grey? I love the nude and subtle colours, AND BLACK! On the left we have the Bloch heels which always goes well with jeans or a dress, Bloch heels are just so much more comfy than thing heeled shoes. So if you are ready for a long night out than these are the shoes for you! Heels just slightly under the knee, i would dress these with blue jeans and the love slogan jumper from Topshop that i posted yesterday. Snazzy!!

 

This blue velvet jacket is such a beautiful colour. It worn at all times especially when it starts getting warmer, hopefully! I never wear long skirts but those long-legged stunning women out there please put them on. This hot-shot pink colour is everything!! Girl, you dying to pick up all the compliments wearing this.
