    I got a job!

    Some photos we have taken here, by Gabriel Hutcheon

    I have a home! I have a job! Haha, everything is working out here and I couldn’t be happier about that. I had a list of things that I wanted to ‘have’ in order to fully feel at peace and at home here. And It was: 1. a home 2. gym 3. a job.

    A few days ago I was Skyping with my family and they asked me about my life here and about my job.. which I didn’t have but I had to lie to them that I have one, because before I left I said that I got a job here which wasn’t true. As bad as it felt to lie I didn’t want them to worry about me, because I didn’t worry, I knew I would find a job anyways. But after Skyping I started feeling really sad about the fact that I still don’t have a job. “I’ve been here for a month and I still haven’t found a job”, “Maybe I won’t find a job at all” were some of the thought that came to my mind. Then I remembered something I learnt from Gabrielle Bernstein’s book – ask universe for help, I said “‘Dear universe I need your help to get the perfect job” in my mind and went to sleep.

    The next day I was walking on the street and my phone started ringing, I picked up my phone and the guy said “Hey Lucy, I’m Glenn, you left your resume into our shop a few days ago, would you like to come for an interview?” I had the biggest smile on my face and the only thing I could think was – universe are you serious!?!? This is not real, this can’t be happening.

    The next day I went for an interview, it’s a small bikini boutique called Bondi Born, right by the beach two minutes from my place. I met the owner who was so nice and when I left the interview I felt like that’s the dream job. Selling beautiful bikinis in a beautiful boutique two minutes from my place? Heck yes. 2 hours after the interview he called me back and said that I got the job, I will start next week! Universe, you are crazy and I love you.

    5 from this week

    1. There’s tinder for girls. Yep! And it’s called Vina. I do have some friends over here who I met the last time I was here (8 months ago) and they are all amazing, but they are all guys. I was seriously missing girl time so much and it made me google if there’s a Tinder for girlfriends out there, just to make some girl friends, and there is! So I signed up to the app, I didn’t really expect anything but the next thing I know I’m at the beach with the sweetest girl Lauren. She just got here from the UK and doesn’t know anyone. She has modelled for Asos and Boohoo and is beautiful inside out. Will definitely hang out with her a lot. This app is the best thing ever haha
    2. When I went to buy an opal card (the one you use for public transport here) the guy sold me a youth card which is meant for kids under 15 hahaha. I know I look young but do I look THAT young!? Anyways, that opal card is the best thing that has happened to me. It’s so much cheaper to travel around using that one and I’m holding onto it for my life. Earlier this week I was on the train on my way home, I only had 1 more stop to go until I saw that the controllers came on. I was so scared that they will take my opal card away that I left and waited for a new train for 15 minutes. So worth it though haha
    3. I was plucking some hairs out of my nose, I don’t usually do that but noticed that I have a few hairs that you can kind of see, so I started plucking them out and while I was doing that every time I pulled a hair out I sneezed. Imagine that in front of a mirror. I even made myself laugh
    4. I moved into my friend’s Mitch’s room, who is currently in Sri Lanka. I can stay here for 2,5 weeks, but one of the girls who also lives here said that she’s planning to move out and FINGERS CROSSED I’ll get her room!! This place is so nice, huge with 6 bedrooms and in north Bondi, super close to the beach.
    5. As I live suuper close to the beach now, I’ve tried to be like a local and walk barefoot to the beach…but I’ve completely burnt my feet and I have blisters on the soles of my feet. Not cool Lucy. I should buy flip flops, I only have sneakers. I literally forgot to bring flip flops to Australia!?!?

    May cause miracles

    Hey guys! Ah I feel so good after spending the night at my aunties, she’s the real spirit junkie, only eats raw food, does yoga and meditates for hours, she has been 3 months without eating anything and so on. She’s so alive and healthy it’s amazing. And all the stories she has, wow I got so much knowledge from her, had amazing healthy food and also meditated and did yoga together. When I left today I felt like I had visited a spa or a yoga retreat haha. Although everything is amazing here and I couldn’t be happier to be here I still feel overwhelmed sometimes, I have to start looking for a job and I need to find an apartment. I don’t worry about these things too much, but I guess a little part of my still does. So it felt so good to go there and let go of everything and relax.

    Now I want to talk about this book! So as you probably know I’ve read Gabrielle Bernstein’s books before (The Universe Has Got Your Back & Spirit Junkie) and in one of her books she talks about how people still email her saying how her books found their way into these people’s lives. Either the book just fell off the shelf in a bookshop or some other magical way. When I got here I went to my favourite little bookshop called Gertrude & Alice, they have thousands of books and what are the odds that out of all the books my eyes stop on this one. I grabbed it and had a look, seemed really interesting but it was $40 so I thought I’ll think about it. I never rush into buying anything, whatever it is I always have to think about it, little fun fact hehe. A few days later I went back to that bookshop and the book was on sale for $10 so I had to get it. Basically what it is, it’s a 40 day guide for your mind. It’s like a work out guide, but for your mind. And it’s 40 days because she said that it takes 40 days for a person to have a habit, so if you complete these 40 days you’ll have an amazing, positive mindset and you see miracles everywhere. It takes max 5 minutes of your time in the morning and 5 minutes in the evening, you start & end your day in the most positive way. In the beginning of this book she said that if you start to follow these steps then miracles will happen. And it’s true. I really recommend this book guys!

    Q&A part 2

    Have you ever traveled the world and where did you go?

    I have traveled quite a lot I guess, when I was younger I went to Italy every single year and sometimes multiple times a year to spend summer, christmas and other holidays with my family there. When I got into my teenage years I stopped going there and did some other trips like Greece and Turkey with my mom. And later some more trips like Dubai with my boyfriend (I don’t recommend going there if you are young though, it’s so expensive and my opinion is that it’s meant for older people or if you are super super rich). I think I’ve always done 1 trip per year but it wasn’t until 2016 when I started traveling a lot more, I’ve already been to Australia twice, I did a huge France and Italy road trip, LA and Barcelona with my girlfriends and so on. Traveling is the best, it feeds your soul. It’s an amazing feeling when you’ve managed to save up for a trip, you are in the airport about to board your flight and deep down in your soul you feel like you can take over the world. It’s such an exciting time. Traveling is the best teacher, the best life school. I have learned so much in the past year and I’ve become such a better person.

    Kas te olete reaalselt ka nii pruun või see on fake tan? Mõni hobi on? Ei saa ära ütlemata, et olete nii kena! 

    Nii armas aitäh! :-)) ma olen tegelikult väga valge, mu parim sõbranna Marleen on puhas eestlane ja ta on palju pruunim kui mina ilma fake tan-ita. Fake tan on life haha! Mul ei ole päris päevitust olnud juba mitu mitu aastat. Aga muidugi töötlemine teeb mind pildil veel pruunimaks, et nii pruun ma ka päris ei ole kui mõnel pildil võib tunduda :-)) ja minu suurim hobi on kindlasti blogimine aga ka healthy lifestyle, raamatute lugemine, trenn, reisimine.

     

    Who are you? Not trying to be cocky. Just that I just now started following – also feel free to treat it more philosophically

    It’s a difficult question to answer haha. But my answer to this question would be that I’m a girl with big dreams, who’s not afraid to fail and who believes in the power of the universe and that there’s a plan for all of us.

     

    What do you usually eat in a day and what’s your excercise routine?

    I’m a fan of healthy food and I actually enjoy healthy food so I eat very healthy and mostly vegetarian. I never buy meat home, but when I eat out I do sometimes have a chicken ceasar salad if I feel like it or very rarely even a beef stake, so I don’t limit myself. Eating this way is very natural for me and this is what suits me. I love everything organic, although it’s so expensive I try to mostly buy organic food. And of course I do balance it out with some cheat days or cheat meals like chocolate or candy or something else yummy. But lately I prefer to have healthy cheat days, I eat organic chocolate or a loot of organic gummy bears haha which wouldn’t be very good on a daily basis but the reason I do this is that when I look at the ingredience list on for example a chocolate found in the grocery shop I just get sick and I don’t want to eat it. So I go to the organic shop and buy some yummy stuff from there. You are what you eat ;-))

    I used to do the Sonia Tlev workuit guide, completed all 12 weeks and was so happy with the results. I tried to re-start it twice, but never made it past week 7. The past months I’ve been doing daily morning walks and this is something that really tones my stomach. And a butt workout 3x per week. I’m thinking about buying the Tammy hemebrow gym booty workout guide but I’m scared my legs get bulky as my muscles grow really fast so I don’t know what to do!?!?

    How old are you?

    I’m 22

    What kind of guys you don’t like?

    The kind of guys who like every girl’s photo on Instagram haha. But also smoking, drugs etc is an instant turn off no matter how nice or good looking the guy is

    what’s your favourite thing to shoot?

    I love shooting so much so I don’t really know! But best shoots are when I’m literally obsessed with the outfit I’m wearing or when I’m shooting in a beautiful place

    what’s one of the things you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t done yet?

    I don’t know I can’t think of anything at the moment. Maybe playing with penguins? Hahaha so random, but when I was in Dubai my biggest dream was to play with the penguins they had in this huge ski resort inside a shopping mall buut then I got there too late and missed the penguin show. I was devastated

    It might sound weird but do you have a boyfriend? You have never talked about that I’m sure a lot of people are curious haha xx

    I don’t. I was in a relationship for more than three years and before that I was in another relationship for 2 years, at some point I realized that I had been in a relationship since I was 17. So like, most of my youth. I’m not saying that this is a bad thing, but I felt like I had all my life to be in a relationship, settle down, get married etc. I had the perfect relationship, but it wasn’t the right time for me. To me being single doesn’t mean that I can hook up with whoever I want whenever I want to, in fact there’s not a single thing going on in my dating life and it has been like this for a while. And I’m loving it. Guys are the last thing on my mind at the moment, being single to me is all about finding my happiness inside of myself, often when we are in a relationship we rely all our happiness on our partners. We are happy when they are next to us and sad when they are not. Before I came out of this relationship I had no idea how to be alone, I hated being alone but now I love it. I have grown so much with this time and this is why it had to end. Everything has a purpose and everything happens for a reason. Being single to me is all about focusing on myself, doing things like buying a plane ticket and moving to the other side of the world, things like being independent.

    But with that said, my ex boyfriend is the most beautiful person inside-out. He treated me like every girl should be treated, I felt like a princess every single day. He’s also a big reason why I’m where I’m in life at the moment. He is so incredibly smart and inspires me endlessly. All my best decisions were made when I was with him. I’m so incredibly lucky to have met him.

     

    What do you think of long distance relationships?

    I think No. This is my personal opinion, but I think when you are in a long distance relationship you can’t be fully present. You might be in the most beautiful place in the world and think ‘yeah this is nice but I wish he would be here with me’ you know what I mean? You’ll miss the person endlessly and it takes a lot of energy and also it takes you away from the present moment. But the present moment is all you’ll ever have so you will end up living in a bubble that’s created by your mind. You are not living fully and not experiencing things fully.

    Did you study ? If yes what?

    Yes I studied law for three semesters and then took 2 years off. I’m thinking about doing an exchange semester or year in Australia, that sounds SO fun!!

     

    Hey Lucy, first i have to say you are such a beautiful person. I love reading your blog and your social media in general. I wonder how you keep your body fit? What are your tips? Diet and workout?

    Thank you so much lovely this means more you’ll ever know. I just like to keep myself active – go for walk, a yoga session, butt workout or whatever else. Just doing something and moving my body every single day. Even just a 20 minute walk listening to music or a podcats is really good. Clears your mind and tones your body! 😉 walking is such a good excercise and the results are better than you can imagine, we did a 30 minute walk with Marleen every day for 2 months this summer and we both saw amazing changes in our bodies, our stomach’s looked so freaking good. Walking is great for loosing fat, but if you want to tone your body as well then add in some strength workouts like ab or butt workouts.

     

    Just wondering were you born in Estonia or Italy? 🙂

    I was born in Estonia 🙂
