Hello my beautiful birds!
Let's talk about a few changes in my life. There are still a lot of things to improve on! You know that we should treat our body as a temple? The understanding that I am not treating it right stayed at the back of my head for a long time. I want to say that I tried to be 'healthier' and it never worked for me but this time it happened naturally.
It is our decision to make what is the best for our bodies. I decided to become pescetarian sincerely for personal reasons and since I have never been a massive meat lover this was surprisingly easy for me. You ask me why I am not vegetarian, if I love animals so much? I don't think I could be a healthy vegetarian with the budget that I have right now.
For the first time in my life I started to care about the products that I use. I minimized it to essentials. Because no one really needs five products on your face on a daily basis. And I am not buying any products that are tested on animals. Why would we support companies that cannot understand that there are more effective, cheaper and efficient ways to test products? If you want to be know more about the brands check CRUELTY FREE INTERNATIONAL.
I always knew that this type of farming exists but never got into it. Since recently when I realised how important it is to live a responsible life. I always thought that free range products are more expensive but that is not the case. And if it is in the shops, go and support your local markets!
Yes, sometimes I do not have time to actually go the markets but trust me, they are usually cheaper, it is always good to support your local farmers. And oh, I am not even going to start about how delicious this food is!
We all know how beneficial water is. I am not the best at drinking 1.5 litres a day but I am getting there! I drink at least two glasses a day, which is still better than nothing!
Woah, woah, woah! Since I've stopped dancing since I was about 17 I was not working out for two years. TWO YEARS! I know, guilty. I started going to the gym and let me tell you, I feel stronger and better than ever. Sad news, with my budget I cannot really go there at the moment. So we will see, how the 'working out at home' thing will work out for me.
The art of getting enough of sleep when you're a student is pretty difficult to achieve. But I can proudly say, that I get at least 8 hours of sleep every night. You will ask me, how? Planner my friends. Planning your time will help you do everything on time and get enough of time to rest. The other thing I do and it makes me feel better is not sleeping for longer than 10 hours because it can make you feel more tired than ever.
Hey, I am not the healthiest person in the world and I must admit that I still eat a lot of noodles, but that is understandable since I am a student, okay? But I try to eat a lot of vegetables, fruit and berries. I am still learning to make lovely, colorful food that I am happy to eat and enjoy. If you need any ideas and you do not know this website, just go to YUMMLY you will be surprised how much beautiful food you can create out of a few products you have left in your fridge. I also try to enjoy what I eat as much as I can. Last year I was so stressed out that I forgot how to enjoy the meal. So I take my time and appreciate the creations in my plate.
Take your time and don't worry. Grow and improve. I still have the tendency to worry about things too much, but with better time management this happens less. I wake up 10 minutes earlier everyday just to have my own time. Do not forget to breathe. Do things that you enjoy doing. Another thing, I got better at is to be more culturally aware. I read a lot of books, watch films and go to galleries. It is great to know a lot of things, to learn and start to look at things from a different perspective. Open your eyes! World is beautiful.
Love and appreciate the people around you. Do I need to explain this one?
Hope you are having an awesome week!
This is how I feel right now. Second year of uni is the most stressful thing, oh my god. Oor maybe I'm just having a crisis. You realise that you are a grown up human being right now and you have to take care of yourself. You want to have a job, earn your own money, be able to pay the bills but you understand that is is impossible with a part time job, because you are a full time student. Boring stuff, huh? What if I don't get an internship, what if I fail my whole year? Maybe I'm just panicking way too much.
Other than that I've just presented my first film ever. And you know what? It is not perfect. But I was not afraid to present it. Usually, I hate all of the things that I create but I am pretty happy with this one. Which is great, because the one thing i definitely need to work on is my confidence!
I am slightly scared to do this but here it is, my first ever short film:

Hope you like it!
Hey ho, new outfit post here! To be honest I don't feel like a stylish or fashionable person at all anymore. Funny enough, when i started studying fashion I realised how much I don't care about the way I look. Of course there are occasions where I must look professional and all that. But for the most parts I love my black skinnies and knitted sweater. This time I've layered two wardrobe staples over my jean button up (which, I swear, I think I have for like 5 years now, I know, gross), put on a massive tartan scarf (which usually works more like a blanket), chucked on some new black booties and finished everything with another wardrobe essential for me - black bag.
As for the accessories these small hoop earrings which were sooooo popular when I was a kid!
I am thinking about doing wardrobe essentials post for you guys (well, anyways, my wardrobe is basically essentials only) would you be interested in that?
Hello, it's been quite a while! I know I say this all the time but I am probably never going to be a perfect blogger who posts regular weekly posts. At the end of the day as much as I love this space it is not a full time thing. I am a full time student and that is my main focus for now. Other than that, I think I am the happiest in my life that I have ever been. How is your life going?
Today I am showing you my makeup of the day. I know, weird, I am wearing red lipstick on a daytime but it is not bothering me anymore, if you love it, you embrace it. And don't listen to the rules like: "You cannot wear this or that". Be whoever you want to be, just learn how to tone it down. For this I am not wearing heavy brow/contour/mascara to balance out the whole look.
Oh, and lets talk about the change! Yes, I've chopped my hair and I am very happy about that. I feel like short hair is more of a my thing and I just feel edgier. It is also perfect if your hair tends to wear flat throughout the day like mine does and if it is very thin, short hair instantly gives the illusion of a voluminous hair (and it's easier to style it, aaand you you use less product, which is always great when you're a student).
