A/W wardrobe essentials (2014)

It was now about time to switch my summery wardrobe into a more wintery one. 
So here you are, my most worn A/W items of this year (see last year essentials here: A/W essentials 2013 & Winter faves). 
Not so much has changed.. still pretty much terrified of colours. Oh! But this year essentials involves more snugly clothes!

For the love of palm trees

You mightn't know this, but I love palm trees. They remind me in some way of a paradise, and I cannot wait to get one inked on me.

Body confidence

(Sport bra - Adidas//Black training shorts - thrifted// Jeans - vintage Levi's)

Today I want to talk to you about something that is close to my heart and that took me awhile to get account of it: BODY CONFIDENCE.

I don't know if it is because I am hitting 20 in about two weeks, but I've realised that the way I was eating and therefore treating my body wasn't right. 
Then I questioned myself: Was it the reason why I've had such troubles liking my body? Is treating my body in a good way would be game-changer? 
Right about now I can tell you Yes! Yes, giving crappy food to my body troubled me to like it, and yes! Treating it right is a real game-changer, for sure!

You'd laugh to know how small those changes are but how effective they come out! For instance, I've cut off all sugary and unnatural-flavoured drinks, I am now running on 2 to 2.5 litres of water 24/7. And ever since, I noticed that my skin doesn't dry out like it used to and my face is getting very spotless and even, plus my metabolism is way better and of course dehydration/dizziness/headaches are not my friends anymore.  I've also been adding up more goods in the way I eat, like including more fruit and veggies in my dishes and you have no idea how I've been enjoying cooking lately, seriously, knowing what you're going to give to your body is something very important, so on that process, I've decided that if I don't know or dislike what's in the food, I won't eat it. I am now eating balanced and healthier and my energy boost never been so high and so has my happiness. I've also been doing some walking twice to four times a week and some minimal exercises aside.I do not believe in diets, for me if you're willing to do some changes on your body, health or being, you'll have to switch your lifestyle to a better/healthier one. No need for it to be drastic (mine hasn't changed drastically, been doing some changes here and there to feel better). But more importantly, keep in mind that every being is different, by this I mean, the changes I made in my lifestyle aren't going to suit everybody's lifestyle. Try to find what works good for you and your body, don't rush it, do the changes bit by bit, give some time to your body to get accustomed to the new lifestyle. 

I am so happy about the way I feel towards my body and myself, how tolerant I've become and simply this amazing feeling that is to love your being is speechless! Something in my mind changed. I have no clue how this enlightenment came across, but I'm glad it did.

To the rough week I had..

This week hasn't been gentle to me.. 
I mean I know in life we have good days and bad days, but let's be honest those bad days get us so down it is awful!
When I saw this quote, it kind of hit me, I mean, when you're having a bad day or week, take some time to find yourself and breath even for just a minute. Life ain't that bad and eventually it might get brighter at the very end of the tunnel.. Remember that!
