We are well into June now and it’s officially summer on Friday! I can't believe it's going to be summer so soon. Although the weather is not really appearing to be summer-esque with the colder days and the extreme rain, I still wanted to dedicate a blog post to my favourite season of the year. In today’s post I thought I would share some of the things that contribute to summer being my favourite season of the year. These are basically all things that bring me that super happy feeling and make me feel free during summer.

THREE EASY TO CARE FOR PLANTS

17 June 2019


Over the past year I have invested in getting more greenery into my room. The past couple of years I have bought many cacti, some of the cacti have survived over those years, and others sadly didn’t survive. I loved the idea of adding some more plants into my room as it was just looking like it needed some greenery added into the home. I like to think I have a green thumb, but the opposite is quite true. I have tried to keep multiple plants alive over the past year, but it’s only until late last year I started discovering the plants that are REALLY hard to kill. In today’s post I thought I would share three of the plants I have in my room that have outlived my expectations on how long they would survive under my care. This isn’t the standard: just add cacti or succulents to your room and you’re done post, I liked the idea of plants that didn’t spike me once I had to repot them.

MY MORNING ROUTINES FOR EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK

14 June 2019


This post feels quite weird to write for me, as I was never really been a morning person when growing up. I never would have thought that as a 22-year old I actually have come to love mornings. Over this past year I have noticed that I started to enjoy mornings more and more. The main reason being because I have started adapting more routines into my life. I am nowhere near the morning person I would like to be that wakes up at 5 in the morning, but I am slowly making progress with my weekday routine.

I have three different morning routines and I would have to say that my weekday routine has got to be my favourite. Especially my weekday routine has helped me feel more focused on my goals. It’s no surprise that my mum and dad always told my brother and me it’s good to develop a routine with good habits so we can utilise or days as best as that day is possible. As a uni student I find and especially in the past found it quite hard to stick to a morning routine. I would usually spend my evenings working away on assignments and papers and would sleep in massively the next day. My lectures always used to start at 10 or later in the morning/day, which is great if you have to travel from a bit further, but as for me, who only lives 20 minutes away from uni, it meant I had an opportunity to sleep in most days.

MY CABIN BAG ONLY PACKING TIPS

12 June 2019


This post has been sitting in my drafts for quite a while now. I believe it's been here since I came back from my trip to Lisbon. I just hadn't gotten around to editing the photos until now. Summer is just around the corner and with that come day- and weekend trips or proper holidays. What better time to share my cabin bag only tips than right before the start of summer?
Whenever I am set off to travel somewhere for a little city break, I usually end up bringing just a case that I’m allowed to bring with me on the flight. I personally prefer to do only bring a cabin bag for multiple reasons, such as saving money on flight add-ons, not being able to over pack as well as not having to wait around for your luggage at the luggage belt at the airport. It can be quite tricky though to pack your suitcase efficiently if you’re going away, which is why I thought it would be fun to share some of my cabin bag only packing tips.

MY SELF-CARE SUMMER GOALS

Personally I love to set myself goals. They can really motivate me to become a better person, grow my confidence and it just feels amazing to tick some goals off a goals list. 2019 has been quite a stressful year for me, I have talked about this lots and I won’t go into it too much again. Anyway, in May I decided to make this summer a summer of self-care for me. I only want to do things that make me feel happy physically and mentally.

So to make this summer about feeling 100% from the inside out, I decided to write down some points or goals that will help contribute to that. I have taken the time to sit down and think about what activities of self-care make me feel truly happy and I came up with the following summer self-care goals. Every muscle inside of my body has been tense since I started stressing about uni. It was starting to take a toll on my body and health. This is the reason why I knew I needed this summer to take time out of my days to properly de-stress.
