Crystals, New People and Spontaneous Shopping Trips

I’ve been trying find a lot of me time recently and it hasn’t been the easiest when I’ve been at work everyday for 9 hours, 6 days a week. I feel slightly suffocated when I’m around the same people 24/7, it can be hard to be patient with different people, as we are all trying to get to know each other still. I am only 2 months in to my contract and it’s been hard to let people in bit by bit when i know i have to spend the next 18 months with them. It’s always natural to make a closer bond with a couple of people, as its human. I think it’s important to stick to those natural connections and surround yourself with those people who you feel closer with because they will keep you smiling. I also think it’s important to keep that effort with the rest of your employees because it is polite and it should really not affect your own energy.

I learnt that i need to make sure i do a couple of things a week that keep me in track with myself, even if its spread out during the week and i go for that coffee date or cinema trip to just forget about work and zone out. I realised i really neeeed this! We all need to just find that calm in all of the drama in our crazy life. Ah, i read about our every day shower can be therapeutic, as in we rush and make getting ready just a casual routine and it’s always rushed for us to get out of the house. But if you really try to make sure you make enough time to enjoy your shower and get ready, with some music in the background, feeling the water against your skin. Showering should be therapeutic, make it part of the day where you just you can’t wait to shower or bathe. Make it a breather for you to wake yourself up or to wind you down after a long day. Showering should be one of your favourite times of the day!

img_1006I bought a rose quartz crystal and a dream catcher last week sunday. The rose quartz represents unconditional love and self-love, so I’m trying to really work on self-love this year by just really appreciating who i am and realising that i am beautiful and sexy. I mean I found it very strange to even write that down. So, women there is always a start, get that pen and paper and write it down. See how you feel, say it aloud and see how you feel. We have to work on actually feeling it without becoming arrogant, but single ladies once you embrace that beauty you will find your match. Surprisingly it all goes down hill again when you get into relationships because you want to just impress your partner naturally and be that sexy lady, but that is all just your natural thoughts starting going crazy. Just stay calm because your man is with you because you are sexy and beautiful, embrace it with your partner. Walk around him with a smile and shake that booty whilst you walk, he will always be happy if you are, End of!

I was browsing around the shops with my friend and decided to just buy clothes to go out that night; this is not the first time I’ve just bought clothes there and then and changed in the changing rooms for the night, we was in decent clothes but we wanted something to wear straight away to hit the bars. Please tell me, we are not the only ones who have done this? So we got some bottles and then went back to hers to get ready and then we didn’t even leave the house!!! Hilarious, we just sat there drinking and chatting to her house mate. It was so perfect, with our favourite tunes in the background. So women, always go with the flow because now i have a spare sexy outfit ready for a cheeky night out. I feel this is going to be the norm whilst travelling, Woopsy!

We need to get out more often. Be free.

Don’t Let Others Defeat You

No one can defeat you or me!!

Being free and going with your natural instincts is so beautiful to feel. No one knows you as much as you know yourself. If someone doesn’t understand you, they still need to respect you, and the same as to you as-well, if you don’t understand someone’s ways, you should still respect that person. Everyone has their own story, but I will never agree with someone purposely disrespecting or talking down to someone. It’s not on! I would love for you all to speak up and voice your opinion at some point, so if you see someone within your workspace being treated unequally, please speak up or take note. Yes, Make sure you haven’t been the person who is victimising others. I know we’re not all perfect, but being happy and confident is perfect in my eyes.

Let’s give compliments and lift each other. We are always told we are not doing things right, but I think some people may forget to notice or compliment the great things you have achieved. Who says you can’t give yourself compliments, it’s better from your inner self then a stranger, Let’s be honest.

Love and kisses. It’s been a hard week but inspirational week.

FAMILY IS FOREVER, LIFE IS NOT

My cinema trip this afternoon was so well deserved with some popcorn and a beautiful friend. I watched COCO and must i say, you have to go see it! It’s a Disney, fun, loving family movie and i would so recommend just taking some time out of your busy schedule to go see it. I know some of you are probably thinking, ‘why would i go and watch a Disney movie’, but i came out of the cinema so happy that i physically can’t describe to you how amazing that movie made me feel. When you watch this film, you will just start thinking about how amazing and important family is to you, even when they are not on your side or don’t agree with half of the decisions you make in life, deep down they will always love you. No matter what, family will always be there to listen. The movie touches on the topic of idolising. When you religiously admire other people’s lifestyle and you really believe that this could be the path for you aswell but ideally you may have a similar career but everyone has their own path and journey, you will never have what another has. We have our own amazing life, but we never see it. The person you are fantasising over isn’t generally happy or having the best life (they might be, but in their eyes, they want more aswell). It’s a vicious circle. How ever shit (excuse my language) you think your life is or however boring you think your life is, it is NOT, someone else you don’t know is admiring your lifestyle. Everyone has an amazing life and family around to support them and if you really don’t, there is always someone you can call upon to help you, but you are the only person who can make your life the life you want. Just enjoy every day you get to live

I was moved this week by a beautiful lady ‘Holly Butcher’, who posted an amazing message for the world to see before she passed away. She just put life right in front of my eyes and reminded me to enjoy every second loving and living the life i want. It is one of the most inspiring letters i have ever read. RIP XOXO

Here is the think to her post.

Day To Day Thinking

0178BA08-2CED-44BB-A83B-6BB4EE2D60C8

Train delays. You’ve been annoying.

TfL have been awful this week and the funny thing is, we can’t doing anything about it. We just have to accept that we will be late for work but i can always see the stress in everyone’s faces. Everyone who was on my tube is most likely to be late as-well, so technically we are never alone. I’m so happy I had 9 hours sleep some nights, also my body is dying from head to toe from the amazing routines I’ve learnt for the show this week. I always know when I can’t sit on the toilet seat with out holding on to something that i have worked hard. It’s been an intense week for me with rehearsals, I’ve been wearing my sports wear all week! Yesterday my anxiety was really high and when it is i always want to blame it on the contraceptive pill; that plays with our hormones; because we shouldn’t really be putting that into our bodies but we all do anyway, Ha! It’s so not good for our hormones (slight breakdown). I realised i just needed more food and more rest because my body needed fuel to keep me strong whilst working out more than it’s used to. So always remember that when you get emotional make sure you eat a massive meal, have some tea and sleep!!!! Please beauty queens, before you have a BREAKDOWN. Diva in the house.

I hate when i stress about little things in advance before the event has even happened or trying to work out a situation that isn’t even there. Why am i making up the worst scenario/Hollywood movie in my head, when nothing has even happened yet. I’m always planning on the worst stuff to happen. Why do i care so much, when nothing has even happened? I seem we all can tend to just make up situations in our head when that wasn’t exactly what happened, we over analyse every step and moment! I need to just leave it at where it is because in the end no one actually cares, only i do. Even my body, i was comparing myself to others all week, as most of us do as performers, we tend to always be looking for that ”dancer body’ or we assume we wont get hired for a job, that’s all rubbish! No one actually really cares about size, they just want to see our talent, but once we believe in ourself truly, they’re not even looking for that. Of course for performers it is casted our looks; that makes it harder for us; to make sure everyone looks good together as a company, but that’s not our issue to worry about and the next job will be round the corner.

Lets take a breath this weekend and forget our everything. Lets just live and eattttt!!!!


I ordered some moreeee clothes yesterday!!! Asos at its finest.

I’m so excited to get wearing these during my rehearsals, the snake-skin print leggings blend in with my skin tone and I’m soooo impressed with the quality of them. I’ve always loved a Bershka running leggings, I’ve had a pair for 2 year and they’ve lasted so long! The quality must be good to last as long as that! So excited to get dancing around in these. Who doesn’t love a print!?

Yes yes yes to black! If you don’t know what to wear, choose black! This is 100% a sexy number, if you are brave enough get this outfit on with some black skinny jeans. This outfit is for a night out to a date night with your loved one/friends. Always nice to change things up. I love a bell sleeve and an off shoulder!


Thank you for ready you crazy fun ladies!

Peaceful Evenings Are Amazing And Always Should Be

 

I’ve got the mood lighting on and the ‘Calm Vibes’ playlist on from Spotify playing. I love Spotify, it just has every genre of music i love. Music cures my heart! I’m sure it cures yours as well, i would 100% recommend Spotify if you don’t have it already. After a long but short day at work (week 2), I’ve now manage to eat; do some extra work bits at home; and now its time to settle the mind. I think its important in the evenings to clear any bad or negative energies that passed your way. Remind yourself It’s not worth it focusing your energies on the wrong thing. Will you care 5 months later? eh NO! I forget sometimes a long bath or shower; as soon as you get in; with music and candles can really calm/wind you down for the rest evening. I’ve still got a lush bath bomb i got as a gift from a lovely friend this christmas to use, so i think its smart this weekend to try one out for the first time. They look amazing, but i do find that lush fragrances are a little too strong for me. I prefer a warm, soft, vanilla fresh and camomile fragrances. They do say taking a bath does pull you out of the world and gives you that personal space you always try to catch from our hectic lives. So try bathing more often, i do prefer showers but I’m going to try bathing more. Get those candles burning, they naturally represent life and if you actually watch a candle it shows you how simple life works and how calm we can just be. But still powerful to touch.

img_0131I love to read and i would always recommend people to find styles of books that suit them or would make them want to read more. I’ve just received this book from a friend called ‘How To Be Calm’ by Anna Barnes. It’s full of colourful, bright and warm pages that instantly make smile. The book is full of fun quotes and ideas about keeping yourself calm and letting go of your anxiety. Most of the ideas you probably know already, but a reminder is always helpful. Some of her suggestions relate to normal things we do in the day, but I didn’t really realise little things we naturally do can actually be so calming and relaxing. At times i like to read motivational books but i do find it gets my brain thinking too much when i want to wind down so this book is perfect. I love thriller and romance books as-well, i might pick up a fashion book next week actually! Switch it up.

Anna Barnes has a collection of beautiful quick mind reads, pick one up or purchase online when you have time.

Make Your Dreams Real

There’s always rules in life and one of them is consistency within everything or anything you want to do. Be consistent. Try to practice or mentally train your mind to make it become a daily habit. Even by training your negative ways of thinking. We form habits and we can change habits. All about repetition. All the amazing ideas that you have in your head but you just don’t know when or how to start. You have to start somewhere, right? A tiny ounce of effort will always be enough as a start off, which then could creep into your life changing dream. Get on those feet women and build the life and the dreams that you want. Build the mind you always wanted. Keep that head high and shine.


Cinderella, look at these amazing ALDO 80s mixed fabric heels!

Let’s Not Stress

0316A8AC-8B45-43E8-9BB9-5ACA3CF2E964I had a major anxiety melt down last night, it was so intense for my head. I think it’s all the Christmas alcohol I’ve been consuming (TBH). Does that mean I need to go on a detox Santa?

The main issue that hit me was the fact that I felt like it always me against the future. We always want to be in control of the future, don’t you? Is it not knowing the future freaking you out? Have a look at your life now and I bet its amazing. I woke up and looked back at my year; damn it was insane; now you have a look and appreciate all those amazing people you have met/ your career path. I have a real bad habit of wanting to control the future or trying to control too much of what’s going on now for the future; now I’ve had enough; It’s not healthy us living our lives like that and of course we all know this. But we all find a way of naturally fixating our brains on unnecessary thoughts. Lets sort this out.

I’m going to start back on my yoga/meditation practice and I’m going try make this my new habit. We need to find major body and mind hobbies that distract us from the stress at the back of our heads. We all have to remember everything is okay, and we control our own thoughts and not let control us.

Another way of not concentrating on the crazy life ahead of us is having a soul mate or lover. I came up with a theory that we only need two minds to survive; i was inspired by the film ‘the mountain between us’, please watch it! We need a soul mate or a companion to help us in each situation, we don’t have to suffer or be alone. There is always someone willing to help, and better to have at least one other person then having ten people trying to help. But usually we are born to get stronger each day by battling life situations by ourselves, but for those who suffer with inner issues and worries and stress. Just grab one hand to lean on. You will become stronger.

The main phrase that we should focus on is

EVERYDAY IS A NEW DAY

SO, forget about the drama you had yesterday and what was stressing you out. Focus on what you are going to do today, forget the negativity. You’ve just woken up with a new chance to start your life again how you would like to. You are in control!
