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.


 

Thank you for reading

Do You Find It Hard To Relax?

When you get some time off work, do you also find it hard to relax? I’ve had 5 weeks off this Christmas (which I am thankful for). I’m currently in between jobs at the moment and I’m finding it very difficult to just chill and put my head back. Do you think it’s the little things we love doing, that make us feel “relaxed”?

Relaxed = Free from tension and anxiety

Zen stones balancing with candles and a Buddha figureI did take up an intensive 7 day job dancing for Helene Fischer (one of the biggest pop stars in Germany), for her Christmas show, going live on the 25th of December on Channel ZDF. The job wasn’t relaxing but it was a fun experience and I was challenged in a style of dancing I haven’t done in years. I’ve done a lot more cooking than I have been doing this year, which I funnily enough find relaxing, especially with some music in the background. Then I found I got anxiety from doing nothing all day, it’s mad! In that tiny mind of mine I wasn’t relaxed, my mind was so use to thinking a million things at once. The feeling of sitting around wasn’t enough for my head. I don’t think I’m the only one who loves to be proactive, maybe the idea of doing house chores without rushing about is also relaxing. This week I’ve still managed to somehow to get myself into a little routine as in; getting up to make breakfast then relaxing and watching some christmas movies, I would then write some ideas for my blog, then I would slowly get up and do some yoga and maybe a strengthening video after with some dancing stretches to keep supple for my next job, finally I get out and wander around. You get the idea!

1A29D984-9EAF-421C-B50A-5F2D5A84C8BEI’m currently in German this Christmas season. I’m spending quality time with my love, which I can’t moan about! Sometimes we don’t get time to see the people we love enough, so doing what ever we can in our spare time to see our loved ones is alway nice.  It’s actually a really nice feeling. Not everyone has enough holidays and free time, so its trying to find the right balance to get your mind into that relaxing state. Germany is sooooo chilled and beautiful, so I shouldn’t complain about having nothing to do, but I did live here for a year and a half, so I know my way about. I do feel at home in Germany and I do love my local coffee shops which get me out. It’s perfect for me to write in different environments as It gets my brain waving and thinking about other things. For me getting some oxygen and fresh air gives me that amazing feeling too, if I don’t get out for at least an hour a day I don’t feel content, I feel agitated. It’s such a weird feeling and maybe I’m not alone with this.

I find doing exercises in my spare time also relaxing and it burns enough energy for me to actually relax my body. I feel like I should of tried to meditate at least 3 times a week and channel my focuses on all the amazing stuff that has gone on over the past year and accept all the amazing things to come. I don’t really walk around in parks in the winter, maybe I should grab my partner and go for a walk this christmas, and just enjoy the local amazing German parks in the winter. I do love a walk in a park but mostly in the summer. I did it for a whole year when I was living in Germany. OMGOSH, I forget my daily commute and how beautiful nature was to pass by. I took that for granted in London, I defiantly didn’t have any amazing parks on my commute to work, I had the underground. Now talking about London, I do feel very relaxed here on my break in Germany and I’m so happy I found the time open up my personal blogging website, it was the best idea this Christmas break and I am thankful.

What are you thankful for today?


Samara’s Monki Haul Christmas Online Shop

I’ve been a huge fan of Monki for years, and this year I feel like I have abandoned the brand. So I had a little browse this week and got some early sale items.

E506F841-759D-43F5-805C-1CF6B97B8854I’ve always wanted these eyelet detail jeans, the material is so thick. This vintage colour can never go wrong, I can put any type of top or jumper on with it. I love the lace on the side, it’s so this season!

52C8AB36-80E3-4498-990E-D8CA804B1463

I’m Obessed with pink, I use to have this obsession with pink clothes and jumpers, so I’ve added a new one now. Again sticking to that vintage style, loose fit. Pure SASS.

5AFD0D5C-6FE0-4728-BE09-15B368E68AE9

Tapered silk, high waisted with a loose fit. WOW, all my items today seem to be in a vinatge style.I only seem to wear high-waisted, I can’t deal with low waist jeans/trousers, as it just doesn’t suit my body. It’s always good to know what clothes suit your shape.

9820E135-7064-4AFE-A4F1-92143FCF0B27

Shiny classic top to go with all my snazzy pants and jeans, I’m going to wear this top on Christmas Day I think. It’s so cozy and snug, stretchy material! Perfect, because I will be eating everything the next few days!


 I hope you loved my discussion today, and my clothes haul!! Thank you for reading.
