4 Things I Learned In 2014

Hi genies
The year of 2014 has definitely been quite eventful and big changes have happened in my life, so I took a moment to reflect and find out what I have learned from it 🙂

1. Ask for help, but don’t rely on others!
Never be too proud to ask for help and get the support of others, but in the end, it’s still your life and your decisions and you’ll have to live with that. So do what you desire to do and find the courage to live the life you want to live without seeking constant approval of people around you. Because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind 🙂

2. Be the change you want to see in the world!
Instead of hoping things around you will change, start changing yourself. Even if it’s only small steps everyday, it’s still a small step in the right direction. From nothing comes nothing and you have to take action if you’re unhappy and want to change something.

3. Be just as kind to yourself as you are to others
There are enough people who will be mean to you and try to bring you down, so you should definitely not be one of them! Talk to yourself as you would to a beloved friend and have enough self-respect and love to stand up for yourself.

4. Do more of what you love
Fill your days more with people and things you love, enjoy every day and find a little happiness in even the worst of days. Life is too short to wake up every morning and dread having to face the day, you should feel excited and happy to get to experience all that life has to offer. 🙂

I hope you had an amazing year and wish you only the best in the new one!!! <3 xx love

#PA Update: Month 12!!!

Hi genies
Wooooooow I just cannot believe it! 12 months have gone by since I posted THIS “little” announcement. A whole year -!! For those of you who haven’t followed me on this journey, it was basically me trying to get into better shape and becoming healthier.

To be brutally honest with you, I am not quite where I had imagined myself to be at this point in time. But I must admit, I actually am in better shape (strengths wise – not so sure about endurance hehe) than I have ever been before and I do eat a lot more healthily than I have before. Over the past year I have learnt so much from the different processes that I went through and I now know what works for me and what doesn’t which is a very valuable lesson learnt 🙂 I have now found a great passion within me for healthy foods and different forms of exercise which no one can ever take away from me.

I am satisfied with the changes I have accomplished, even if I wish I had been a little more consistent and harder on myself but oh well! Every now and then “life” happens, you slip a little and fall off the bandwagon but that’s ok, too. As long as you get right back on it of course! hehe 😉

Even though this project has now officially come to an end, I am in no way giving up on my new-found lifestyle and I will only improve over time…so watch this space 🙂 And as I’ve already mentioned last time, I still have this thing called a half marathon ahead of me next fall…oops…so I need to keep going no matter what!

Nails: Green Genie

Hi genies

Green Genie - Alessandro

Green Genie – Alessandro


I love this nail polish for the winter months and not just because of the name hehe. It’s a nice deep green colour that very fittingly is called Green Genie by Alessandro. 🙂
