I have an obsession with weird bags, I think all of these bags look so cool and make every outfit look a bit extra. I ordered nr 1 and 3 but low key want them all, so pretty to wear with a dress or just with a simple outfit like denim shorts and a t-shirt. Also Fashion Week is next week, so that’s the main reason I ordered these! I don’t have any nice bags, I just realised that I’ve been using the same here Gina Tricot bag for a year and the same Zara backpack here for what like 2 years? Haha very glamorous. So yeah it was definitely time to freshen up my bag wardrobe :-)) do you like these kind of bags?
And after this photo it all went downhill…haha
BeThereBeauty event at the Upper East Side ♥
I got invited to this pretty event last Saturday! Lauren came with me and we had so much fun. We kind of didn’t get the dress code though, it was a brunch event so we thought let’s dress casual but when we got there everyone was wearing heels and full glam haha, oh well we just laughed about it and now I know that brunch is fancy thing in Australia haha. Anyways it started at 11.30am so we didn’t have breakfast before, but this event turned out to be more drinks than food so imagine how drunk we got as we had alcohol for breakfast.
I was planning to shoot a lot of photos but the last photo is the last photo I took that day/night haha. They brought this huge jug of alcohol to the table, but everyone but me and Lauren was driving in our table so we ended up drinking the whole thing ourselves. Later on after the event we went to the Bucket List by the beach and had a bottle of wine, haha I don’t know if you saw it on my story but I was trying to take a boomerang of me pouring wine into my glass but totally didn’t realise I was pouring it on the floor all over Lauren’s new white kicks haha. After that we went to mine and had half a bottle of vodka. Don’t ask. Anyways the night ended at 2am two guys carrying Lauren to my place because she couldn’t walk hahaha. It was one of these nights, we were out for like 13 hours partying! Absolutely crazy. Probably the craziest night I’ve had since I was 16. Great after I just said that I don’t really want to party haha but spontaneous party nights are always the best :)) Thanks to BeThereBeauty for having me it was such a pretty event and such a sweet girl behind the brand!!
It’s my last month, or month and a half (I don’t exactly know yet when am I going home) in Australia for now and I really want to take this month to focus on myself. My time here has been a lot about meeting people and that’s what traveling is about, and I get tears in my eyes if I think about all the amazing friends I’ve made here. But it’s hard to balance that with ‘me time’, I’d say the whole summer I was busy doing something with someone every single day, even if I woke up without a single plan after a phone call from a friend or a text from someone I had my whole day planned. No time to think, just go do things – you are in a new country, go out there, live, explore, meet new people, have fun. That was pretty much my summer, always on the go. So now I really want to take this month for myself, I will still hang out with my friends of course but instead of dropping all my plans the moment someone wants to do something, I reschedule it for another day and go to the gym, do a face mask and read a book or do whatever else I had planned to do. This month I’ll put myself first. I want to:
- Work out as often as I can. Last week I worked out like crazy and LOVED it! I always work out but last week was on another level. I read in a book that you only have a few things that you can put your focus on every day and if you’re putting your energy into the wrong things (like constantly hanging out with friends with no time for yourself) or (things like partying and fuckboys..ugh I swear they take the most energy) then you just don’t have the time and energy for gym or whatever else you want to do! But last week I pretty much had no plans apart from work and gym and I had so much time and energy I worked out twice per day!
- Eat healthy. I’ve always been a healthy girl but just taking it to the next level and really cleansing my body with good food. Also I learned how to cook – look at all the things you can do when you take time for yourself!! I really feel like I’m growing as a person.
- Listen to more books and podcasts. It’s a bit tricky right now because my headphones broke, need to get new ones asap. But that’s the best way to feel even better about yourself, learning and growing into a better human. I want to leave this place smartest I’ve ever been.
- I really want to focus on my Instagram and taking photos and that’s just my number 1 priority. I also have the most amazing collaborations going on with my DREAM brands – Saboskirt, Revolve, Mistressrocks etc. They are literally giving me my dream summer wardrobe! I decided I won’t shop anymore for clothes, just for accessories or only if I really see something amazing and I’ve actually managed to save quite a lot of money! And I’m planning to buy myself something I’ve been dreaming of for 2 years. I’m so happy on the inside. I will forever be happy that I started blogging/Instagram and found this passion.
Ah I really feel like a month of me time is all I need! Although I’ve met amazing people here I’ve also met quite a lot of fuckboys who make you question your self worth for a second. Although I am a confident person, I know what I’m worth and I walk away if I’m being mistreated, seeing how guys act can still really hurt. I’m not just talking about myself, but all the girls here. Honestly, poor girls is all I can say. But I’m happy and grateful for all these experiences, I’ve never really been single before – to be honest the past year has been my first single year as I was in a great long term relationship before and all these bad experiences were definitely what I needed. I haven’t been sleeping around (I’ve never been that kind of person and truly need to know the person and have deep feelings for them in order to be able to do that) but more just like going on dates and seeing where things go etc and then finding out the person has been lying about their whole existence…pretty much. Honestly dating in Australia is something else, never do I ever recommend that to anyone haha unless you have a heart of steel and can’t get hurt! One night we had quite a bit of wine with Lauren and we were talking about writing a blog post about dating in Australia. Should we? haha. Anyways in the end it’s all about living and learning and looking back you just laugh at all these experiences! No need to take life too seriosly :-)) Sleep time now. Night xx
Lululemon (an activewear shop 5 minutes from my place) hosts workouts in store before opening a few times per week, I’ve always seen the signs outside but never went in. Until last night when I walked past and saw that – Wednesday morning 7am Boxing. I had not worked out for 3 weeks after getting a bad flu and I was finally feeling better + I had always wanted to try boxing!!
So I set my alarm had an awesome boxing session with the coolest girls this morning! Honestly I’m so happy I went, it’s always a bit scary to go do a new group workout you’ve never tried – like maybe they are all pros and you’re a joke? But I ignored these thoughts that popped into my mind for a second when I was on my way there, went in and killed it and had an awesome time! They do a lot of different workouts 4 times per week – boxing, yoga, pilates etc. And the best part is that all the workouts are free, and it’s a 5 minute walk from home! I’ll definitely try to go in for a workouts a few times per week…I think boxing on a Wednesday morning is going be a tradition ;-)) best way to start the day!
…Honestly my arms are so sore though. Writing this post with macaroni arms was the real struggle
