Just Keep Swimming, You Are On The Right Track

SHE’S BACK!!!!!!

This throw over sheer kimono is from BOOHOO, I have it in white aswell. But I could literally wear this with all my outfits. All seasons round item; I would say this kimono is one of my faves.

It’s been nearly a year since I’ve written anything. So many things can happen in a year or even a couple of months. Time tends to fly by and we get slapped in the face and wrapped up in our own little bubble with the existence we call ‘Life’. We are learning and evolving every day. Have you ever thought you was happy in a relationship, when actually you wasn’t the whole time? I mean I think we do see the red flags at the beginning stages of meeting/dating someone. We just tend to ignore them and give them all the chance. We all love chances, but as a dear friend of mine would say…

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice shame on me.

I LOVE IT ! Please lovely ladies, don’t ignore your sadness and don’t allow someone to make you feel like you are crazy or tell you that you are sad because of other reasons; stand your ground and find the root of what is making you feel that certain way and speak up! Be heard girlfriend. We can fall in love with a controlling selfish lover or with someone who just doesn’t want to hear your voice. Don’t just settle for anything and know your worth. I always have a gut feeling but I never go with it, I will do now, trust me haha! I’m starting to learn that I’ve always knew what was right for me, but I lacked in power and lost my strength to speak up. It will take time to find your full power or maybe you have that strength already, if so, make sure every decision you make is for you and you know that it will bring long term happiness.

This outfit is PRETTY LITTLE THING. This is a Co-ord; skirt and blouse. I do love the print but the skirt is quite thin material so if I re-wear the skirt in the winter I will have to put some tights on or over the knee boots with it. The blouse you can wear all seasons round, especially in winter with a pair of  jeans but I’ve just tied it in a knot for a this summer look. P.s I was in Marrakech two weeks ago.

I went through my first break up (I’m sure you’ve all been there before). I feel like everyone should experience heart break because it really has strengthened me in all aspects in my life. I now will always speak my mind and make sure I am doing what I want to do. I was with an emotionally abusive partner and I was unintentionally or intentionally put down and made to feel I had no say in my relationship. I was ignored and ignored for 2 years and a half, and i only realised I was until I left the the relationship. HOW!? How was I so blind? I guess we can be blinded by love; unhealthy love can just really leave some bruises on our hearts. I became addictively co-dependent and I never thought I would have due to my strong independence before my relationship; I guess this is where we learn our lessons. The process of breaking up was not fun but I can admit I now feel free. I wouldn’t say I hate or despise my ex because I’ve learnt everything I need to know for myself and I now know how to keep strong and keep my power and self worth. No one should gain the power to bring you down unless you hand it to them. So we cant blame anyone else but ourselves.

Things That Make Us Smile

HUGS

A hug is so simple, yet it can make you feel so happy. I want to try hugging more often and do you know what? I would love it if you guys could try it too. When you greet someone, go for a hug , really welcome them. Watch the difference you feel about yourself. I tried it all day, and i just felt so content and at ease. Instead of thinking of what the other person is thinking of you, you end up thinking that you’ve given them something special. EH, because it is special. Don’t underestimate the HUG now please.

Expressions is one of the first things you notice when you meet someone, their energy is sooo obvious. It Doesn’t mean they are this way today because of seeing you, they may be stressed/had a really crazy tiring day. So what do I say, give them a hug. You can also make people feel better instantly, that stressed person is now all of a sudden feeling at ease, they are feeling happier. BECAUSE OF YOU! YAYYYY. So simple, right?

Why don’t we all buy these massive Teddy Bears and hug them all day and sleep.

So cute.

This is why we find lovers and we sooner or later find out that all we want to do is just hug them, while doing the things we like.


What else hugs us? Eh, JACKETS!

Here’s my selections of new in jackets from Zara that I love.

Sending you kisses and hugs.

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!
