Spontaneous Evening by the Sea

When it comes to hair, don’t be afraid of the wind. It creates a messy and romantic hairstyle!:)

We are getting closer and closer to the summer time, it is only 6 days left! How time is flying so fast, you blink and – here we are! Many of us wait for the summer with excitement – vacation, travel, sunshine, ice cream, nature, smiles and joy. But while everyone is still in town, and weather is blinking at you with a smile, use this time to sponteneously spend some evenings outside!

Spontaneous meets are so exciting. When you simply grab some coffee and walk slowly, while enjoying the weather and being among the people mass. That is exactly what we did yesterday! So enjoy it simply and casually!

When it comes to clothes, spring is quite unpredictable. Especially in a city which is situated by the sea. It can be windy and cloudy in the morning, so hot in the daytime, and much colder in the evening. Therefore, a jacket is actually a must. Then you feel secure at any time that you will not get cold. There are so many beautiful jackets out there for you to choose, so it should not be a problem. Remember to grab a jacket before you go out, and you will be ready for a spontaneous evening by the sea!

Cherry Blossoms

Take a couple of minutes to notice the beauty spring has to offer!

IMG_2829.jpg

A place where people stop for a while,

Look up and stare,

For a couple of seconds, they stay there.

Then they take their phone or camera in hands

And smile for themselves,

Raise their gadgets like a glass.

One shot, two shots,

Did you get that perfect one?

Because nature show its beauty,

So strong in person though.

Take your time to capture it,

Also mental pictures are so great.

Magical nature, magic of nature,

No matter how you say it,

Cherry blossoms shine right now,

To You, To Me,

To Everyone who notices their beauty.

Choose to wear a Smile

A name You may not remember, but a smile You will never forget! 

 

Fashion Friday of this week is being converted into Fashion Saturday! But no worries, I have a beautiful subject for you guys, which is called Smiling! It is so important to treat your inner beauty first and feel content with yourself and confident, as I wrote in the previous blog post – Choose to wear Confidence. Therefore, I want to talk about the main aspects that come from our insides, before we go and dig into outfit ideas and trends later on. You are never fully dressed without a smile on your face!

Have you ever heard that Smile is the best accessory anyone can wear? Have you thought about it, whether you agree? 

 

Well, I agree with that 100%! A real and genuine smile does wonderful things to yourself as well as to other people. It brings out simple happiness and joy!

 

 

What would a big statement necklace look like with an angry or sad face? Of course, the necklace would distract peoples eyes for a while, but ultimately they will notice your well being. At the same time it is very difficult to frown when looking at someone who smiles. Therefore, by wearing your best accessory, you make others to wear their best accessories as well!  Smiling can also make you healthier. It can reduce the level of stress and overall blood pressure, it boosts your immune system and increases the level of mood enhancing hormones like endorphins. So are You smiling already?

Beautiful Smiles of my wonderful people!

Therefore, the goal is to treat yourself well, treat your inner beauty by smiling. When your inner beauty is in place, it will shine through to your outer beauty. You can wear a genuine smile – the best accessory in the world, day after day and everyday.

It is very important to not be ashamed of your smile, since every smile is different, unique and beautiful in its own way. A happy, smiling person looks always more content and attractive. Smile to yourself every morning, smile to the other people everyday and you will hopefully notice a difference for your inner happiness, health and outer beauty! Never underestimate the power of a sincere smile. ❤

Rain is essential for life

IMG_7867

Water has so many benefits for all of us.

It is so good for You, yes You,

Your body thanks You, yes You.

Drink water without looking to the sides,

And you will feel energy drifting inside.

But what about plants, those beautiful plants?

I hope you like spring, when the nature wakes up.

Rain is essential for life.

Nature needs sun and the water as well.

So next time it`s raining and you are missing the sun,

Step back to the side and think of the rain

As healing and essential,

Healthy and refreshing.

Appreciate the rain,

Without it nature would be done.

S`illot, Mallorca

Long walks combined with long conversations… You simply walk without knowing where you are going. You are following the path. Eventually you stop, find a place to sit, enjoy the nature and your lovely company. You feel as this is your place, you belong here. This feeling is magical and brings a lot of good emotions. Have you experienced something like this while being on holiday?

 

Small, pretty and cozy, previous fishing village, situated on the east coast, which is on the other side from Palma de Mallorca. The town is called S`illot. ​There are pedestrian ways, where you are able to walk or bike to other nearby places, such as Sa Coma, Cala Millor and Porto Cristo. The beach in S`illot is quite small, so walking to the beaches nearby is a great solution. And oh, one more thing, parking is free all around. Even arriving at 9pm in July, we found available parking spot. Well, don’t have that high of expectations for the parking spot looks. The most important thing is that you can find a place for your rented car which is nearby and completely for free! We stayed at the Universal Hotel Perla, which was located by the beach, with great service and delicious buffet breakfast.

You like night life? Well, then this town is not that great of a choice. The only night place they provide is called Crazy Monkey Bar. There wasn’t that much action when we visited that place, but the music was still fully on. The positive thing is that the whole dance floor is yours! If you are brave enough to dance alone of course, it takes courage to start something, such as dancing when no-one else is doing so. But always remember, that life is actually too short to constantly be afraid of everything, especially things you want to do. If you want to dance, but are afraid of what people will think of you, who cares, you will probably never see them again after that night anyways and they are sipping on those fancy cocktails and will probably join you after a while. So let your hair loose, put on a favourite dress and dance for as long as you wish. The dance floor is yours!

S`illot is also close to an amazing place called Cuevas del Drach. The cave situated in Porto Cristo has been known since the Middle Ages and has a maximum depth of 25 metres below the ground level. There is an underground lake situated in the cave called Lake Martel. This Cave visit ends with a short but beautiful classical concert performed by four talented musicians playing in the boat. There is completely dark in the cave, except of bulbs situated in the musicians boat. Wonderful experience! You can simply close your eyes and enjoy the magical moment. And there is a boat trip at the very end across Lake Martel!

One more thing which we did that was very fun. That was a boat ride. Two hour long boat ride through splashing water, both dark blue and crystal clear turquoise, with some amazing views of caves, cliffs and cities. I also had my Marilyn Monroe moment while on the boat, (which you can see on the second slideshow), since the wind was so strong as the boat moved. It was so much fun! Also not to mention the guy that pronounced all the places we arrived to in a very amusing way. You have to really experience it to understand. But the memories are strong which means it was amazing!

Song of the trip.

Choose to wear Confidence

confidence-is-beauty

You probably recognise yourself trying on new trends, outfits, hairstyles or makeup you have seen on other people that looked amazing, only to feel the urge to change to something else and cover yourself with a blanket. You walk on the streets and constantly touch your skirt, or fix the scarf and you definitely don’t feel like dancing. When people take a look at you, you immediately think there is something wrong and you nervously look down. What is missing here? Why do other people look so much better in your eyes?

The answer is CONFIDENCE.

No matter what you wear, confidence is the key and how you feel inside. Since the taste is very personal, confidence is universal – it is beautiful and we recognise it regardless of what type of style you like and preference you have. Feel the most beautiful in the room and shine bright from inside and out. Beauty is what you feel about yourself. So choose to wear confidence today and everyday!

Have a shiny weekend full of confidence!

Explore LONDON continues

 

Time simply flies away when you have fun, they say, and it is absolutely true! That is what happened the next days we spent in London. No surprise we missed our evening ride on London Eye…

You see, we bought a Day & Night tickets, in order to see London by day and by night. The first admission has to be made during 10:00 to 16:00. The second admission has to obviously be made after 16:00, but the thing is that we didn’t check when the London Eye closed. We assumed it would be at least at 19:00. And guess what, we take beautiful photos at Buckingham Palace, watch beautiful sunset as we ride in the red bus and walk by the Big Ben towards the London Eye, excited to finish experience the sunset over the city…

We arrive in excitement at 18:30, just to see empty lines and workers smiling, so ready to call it a day. London Eye closed at 18:00 and we were just halv an hour late. Oh well, we already experienced the amazing ride in day time, not minding the rain. There are plenty of things to do in London, have to keep the positive thoughts lined up first row!

Also we didn’t miss an opportunity to experience a show while in London. We saw a show called “Stomp”, performed at Ambassadors Theatre, which is a combination of rhythm, theatre, comedy and dance. There are 8 performers, who use all kinds of things, as kitchen sinks, brooms, plastic bags etc, to create some wonderful, feelgood rhythms. Everything sounded so funky, performed really professionally. No one speaks throughout the whole show, but that is the thing. Only universal language is used! Wonderful and very funny show, full of silent comedy and great funk created by urban things, you could never think using as instruments. I really enjoyed this show and walked from the theatre with a big smile on my face.

The video I made from London (which is down below) sums the whole trip up, with amazing places, buildings, nature… And the little dance is inspired by Zumba (which I really like), to make the video more authentic and interesting to watch! I hope You will enjoy the video, to look at London through my eyes, and it will inspire You in some way. ♡
