Body confidence

Geen categorie

I wrote this a while ago, but i know it always can help someone❤❤

Before we are even born we are like everybody a ball of cells. There is something called genes that give us our looks and personality. Thats something thats unique, thats you and that you shouldnt change, most things you cant change.

You can get plastic surgery but whats the point of it? To make you happy? Media and society is the cause of our unhappyness not our looks. But you can do small things like braces or that extra mille when your running. But you don’t need to only if it affects you in a big negative way.
You need to lurn that your body is yours and it need to go with you for a lifetime, even almost forever. 
Try to cut people out that affect your body image in a negative way. Like follow people on social media that are like you. Not because you want to be them and change yourself completly. You can find people that inspire you to be motivated to create.

You just need to be healthy and happy. You cant see by just looking at someone how healthy someone is, it commes from the inside. 
Body confidence is a journey, your own and nobody should affect that in a negative way

Where do Parisiennes go on holiday?

Art, Fashion, Travel

Parisians pride themselves on discovering the best holiday hot spots before they go mainstream and getting a look inside their carefully guarded address books is like getting backstage access at a couture show. As wide-ranging as Port-Cros, Montauk and Buenos Aires. With contributions from Ines de la Fressange, Camille Rowe and Caroline de Maigret, this is how to do vacations the French girl way.

What it girls of this moment can learn from philosophy

Geen categorie

In our western culture, fashion is really important in our daily life. Clothes is a way of self-expression, a way to show yourself to the world. Many women dream of a walk in closet filled with the newest clothes and shoes.

It’s like we seem to forget that clothes doenst make you happy at all. Ofcourse it can make you feel pretty. But we consume way too much, some people buy hunderds to thousands clothing items, just to ‘feel pretty’. Sometimes i think that the world is crazy obsessed with clothes, but someone who could inspire you is Thoreau.

This American is a minimalist, he has the question what it the least we need to be happy? Here are some of his top 5 answears, that also could solve the “clothing problem”.

  1. Treasure usefulness and comfort, over your looks and the attraction of the new.
  2. Clothing doesn’t say anything about who you are.
  3. Prefer “to be” over “to have”.
  4. Dress yourself to the way you are and don’t let clothes (the world) affect you.
  5. This current fashion system doesn’t exist for you, but uses you to grow.

 

Beauty of the week: Sartreuse

Beauty of the week

To be honest, this girl is the reason i started this blog. Ive always wanted to do it but now i did it, because she convinced me. Im far not good like her but the way she writes and thinks inspires me, so elegant and chic, so classy but simple.

Her links are: blog and instagram

blue-shirt-fanbetween-paris-amsterdam-1

As you can see i write liberatly, i never use a capital letter when i use ‘i’ and i never put a ‘ when i say im. I dont want to change that i just want to enlarge my vocabulary for my writing. I also already did a post on that.

She also inspired me to travel, she lives between Paris and Amsterdam, and has plans to go to Japan. Thats my dream! To at least live 6 months in Paris and 1 year in Amsterdam.

“Sartreuse is a fictional character made up by a 23-year old student, translator and Isabel Marant enthusiast currently living between Amsterdam and Paris. The blog has been created to express commentary and ideas on style and to take the reader on an ongoing ride to create a well-edited wardrobe. It is also a cunning example of spend thrift at its finest, where sometimes the line needs to be drawn between necessity and frivolity. All in all, this blog contains the neurotic mumbles and moans of a writer that wants to buy less and have more.”

As im sitting here and drinking my earl grey tea to calm down im writing this: A little update from me to you. At the moment im in the middle of my finals. So im really bussy and i dont know if im going to be able to write the next 1-2 weeks. I find it really important to lurn but now my head is overflowing from al those formulas and words i need to know, so come and rescue me.
