your heartbeat ♥


Home isn't four walls; it's two eyes, a little fur, and a heartbeat.

alive.

Hello April, I knew that January & February were going to be the hardest months - slump in energy levels, not knowing where to go, where to turn in life. & March proved me right.
So much creative energy is flowing through me & it feels like it is only growing stronger & becoming indestructible with every day.
Mindset is everything - if you want change, make a change.
March was just the beginning.....

Check print in this colour is my obsession this season...& this oversized, slouchy dress / can be worn as a light coat, gives me the comfort & style I always look for in clothes.
Button down shirt dress, oversized collar, exaggerated puff sleeves, long slits on the sides; & THIS PRINT!!! What's not to love!

keeping good company

There is nothing more important for you than surrounding yourself with the right people.

the perfect sweatshirt

Not following today's mandatory colour scheme - emerald green, & choosing bright blue instead in the form of this comfy sweatshirt. Came across it on Asos & had to buy it - colour combination of bright blue, red & yellow spoke to me...but it's the "Bananas" slogan that sealed the deal - within seconds this sweatshirt was in my basket ready for checkout. I put it on this morning, pairing it with simple black leggings & black sock boots; & haven't taken it off - spent all day wearing it, having chats with papa, cuddling with my baby chubby bun, cooking sweet delights with mama - a perfect sweatshirt for my Saturday.

Saturday morning....

Oh, do I have a love affair with Saturday mornings....
Having a manic 9-5 office job has it's toll on my health, my mood, my energy levels, my SKIN! After taking selfies for this post, I didn't cover up all of the scabs on my face on purpose - to have this as a reminder, a motivator, something to look back at & think 'phew, thank goodness my skin is clear now'. But to reach this stage I have to be disciplined, motivated, creative with my meals & snacks...etc. Currently, I am addicted to Red Bull - any kind of fizzy drink actually, sadly nothing with a word 'Diet' in it. Skipping lunch, no healthy snacks, not drinking enough water, not getting enough sleep, the list goes on....
Comes Saturday nevertheless, & I want to be a better me....breakfast always always consists of fruits & Green Tea. I've started making my own flavoured water - cucumber, strawberries, lime & mint is my favourite! No make-up, reading books...listening to music....online shopping..face masks....coming up with ideas for photos or going through multiple boxes & make-up bags full of unworn clothes & jewellery, make-up, cards, magazine cut-outs......my best "me time"....
why is it so difficult to find the time during the week to do things for myself, my body & my mind?
YOUR BODY & MIND DESERVE THE BEST!

for the ones who dream of stranger worlds

Guuuys, OVERSIZED check blazers, sock boots, messy hair - I could wear this every day! Effortless, chic & stylish! And Oh My Goodness, the minute you decide to change things in your life, plan out every day & think about your goals day & night - it is so amazing to see them fruit to life.....Law of Attraction is real & oh so powerful! Edit your life frequently and ruthlessly. It is your treasure after all.....

you are what you love, not who loves you -- Sevilla, Spain

my, oh my, has it been a long time since I posted on my beloved blog....no, forget about posting...I don't even remember the last time I logged in here...I forgot all my passwords, all the tricks in Photoshop..today I spent 6 hours on Youtube watching tutorials trying to bring back my memory....Red Bull, Dr. Pepper, cupcakes, Nutella & a good few tears kept me company today, but not once did I want to call it a day.....thankfully, it all came back..together with a warm feeling of nostalgia...recollection of my love & enthusiasm & hunger to do this - brainstorm ideas, outfits, shoot, edit, write.....I could do this day & night...give my all....
This is just a reminder to myself, to pick up where I left off..strive to get better..make every effort to post more..work harder than everyone else!

Seville, oh Seville, you were beautiful - I didn't want to post typical touristy photos - we can look it all up online - I won't bore us with them....but I thought it is best to come visit this city during summer....when it's hot...when it's buzzing with people....to feel the energy....to hire a row boat at the Plaza of Seville....to swim in the swimming pool & lounge in the sun on the rooftop of your hotel....to sit all night outside sipping on Sangrias.....

it was all a dream


All my free time I spend watching beauty/fashion videos on YouTube, scrolling through thousands & thousands of pictures on Tumblr & Instagram. Making lists, saving inspirations, daydreaming, planning, living out my life in my dreams. Last week I came across the below saying & it haunts me: I cannot walk the streets of the city I live in, I am not excited by food, I cannot get one night of good sleep, I'm bored....."MAYBE THE JOURNEY ISN'T SO MUCH ABOUT BECOMING ANYTHING. MAYBE IT'S ABOUT UN-BECOMING EVERYTHING THAT REALLY ISN'T YOU. SO YOU CAN BE WHO YOU WERE MEANT TO BE IN THE FIRST PLACE."
