Being a Better You!!!!

Hey Guys,

It’s me again, and I know in my last post and honestly in a lot of posts. I’m continually talking about updating and changing my blog and that change is coming believe me. I am working on developing an entirely new and improved blog that is going to seriously have my heart and soul, blood sweat and tears poured into it. But the change, is also definitely going to be slow moving, one of the reasons is just a money issue. Because I need the website to be hosted by someone, so basically in the next month I should hopefully have it up and running. In addition, I also need to go out and get nice awesome pictured for the blog so all up this is going to take me a bit. But rest assured I am definitely going to seriously be improving my blog.

Now with that, little disclaimer out of the way I am still going to be writing on this blog because well, I need to get my feelings out in the world somehow ahahha. But seriously, I just love writing on here so I am just going to keep doing it.

Today, I am going to talk about developing yourself. This is honestly does sound so cliche, but it is also something that I believe is incredibly important. As human beings, I do think we spend a lot of our time looking for that perfect partner or just in general surrounding ourselves with a lot of people, to make ourselves feel better. But I really do honestly think, there is also beauty in taking time out for yourself and taking a step back. And working on making yourself a better person. I think no matter who you are, there is always room for improvement and you can always develop who you are as a person.

One of the most important ways to do this, is to spend some time alone. It is human nature that when we need validation we surround ourselves with people, to sort of make ourselves feel better, But at the same time, we are never getting to really know ourselves. We are never developing on our own as a person, and therefore your values and beliefs can be largely shaped by others beliefs. Instead of developing your own set of morals that sticks to your truth.

What do you guys think?

Ideas, Ideas, Ideas!!!!

Hey Guys,

I know I’m literally the most inconsistent person ever when it comes to uploading blog posts. But I have been having a lot of thoughts and I really do just need to get them out there in the open. The problem, I feel as if I am having with myself is I want to do loads of things, but then I feel as if I really am all over the place, and can never just get my thoughts done coherently. Like tbh, I really do and would love to have my own fashion line, which I would desperately love to get up sooner rather than later. But I also, want to travel loads and tbh I can’t be doing both at the same time. But I do feel my travel is necessary for finding myself and my personal growth.

But, also as I have discussed previously before on this blog. I am actually the most impatient person in this world and I seriously just have trouble letting things happen when they are ready. And then on the other hand, I really want to improve this blog. I just have so many ideas of the direction I would like this blog to go in. And in addition to that, just how I would rather it look and turn out to be, which honestly I only just got inspired by that when I started writing this blog post. (Like see what I mean I swear I go 100 miles an hour, and the ideas continually just flow out of my mind). But it is also, just sort of stream lining my ideas, and getting them in order. It is creating a good vision for my ideas and then executing them. There’s my issue though, like I swear executing my ideas is one of the hardest things ever, because in a lot of way I feel as if I get disappointed by how they turn out.

I definitely know 100% that I would love to get more creative with my blogging, just honestly because it would be nice to have something, like this just to keep me occupied as a hobby, because I absolutely love pouring my heart out to everyone. Incase you hadn’t already noticed ;).

But seriously, if any of you have any advice, help a girl out.

Never-ending Dreams!!!!

Hey Guys,

I’m back again after a busy few days and thought I would touch base since I am have been having certain feelings lately. I am going to try and make this as not sad as possible haha. But basically I don’t know if you guys ever have this feeling of, that your dreams are too far out of reach to achieve. I know all dreams are achievable and you just have to put your mind to it. But do you ever find it overwhelmingly difficult, to ever think that abut yourself? That you could possibly reach your dreams? For me I feel as if this feeling stems from, me having my hands and feet dipped into too many things. And what I mean by that is I want to start a brand, but I also want to live in another country. I also want to travel the entire world. I feel like at the end of the day I want it all and it completely overwhelms me.

A lot of the time, I think I just find it really difficult to break down what I want most and to map out the little steps in order to achieve that big dream. But I also know I am just the most incredibly impatient person, and that is seriously probably half my issue. The other half is I always feel as if I am in a rush to prove people wrong, and because of that I always feel as if my progress is never good enough.

I think at the end of the day, we live in a technological age and patience let’s be real not all of us have it. And we always define success with the amount of money we have that we are all in a race, to get there and in the meantime forget our journey. If I’m going to be honest the idea of not having a career and not being successful, is something that terrifies me. Not having a purpose is my absolute and undeniable biggest fear, and I feel like if I’m not creating something amazing then that’s what I’m doing. Living a life without purpose.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you have similar feelings?

Spring Outfit Ideas!!!!!

Hey Guys,

I’m back but this time the post is more fashion related, I have just put together three outfits that I think will be lovely in the spring time. So i’ll just get into it below.

22429114_1658432157540406_897807748_o.jpg

The first outfit we have is of course showcasing, the oversized denim jacket. Which I absolutely adore and tbh I usually wear this all year round. I will first leave the name of the stores where I got all the items from and then I will get into, what I love most about the outfit.

Western denim Jacket- Princess Polly $85

Merci oversized t-shirt- White Fox $54.95

Black Ripped washed black Skinny Jeans- Ghanda $45

Gazelle Adidas Shoes- $120

Now I love any outfit that involves a denim jacket just because I think it pulls together just any outfit. In addition, I absolutely love black skinny jeans. However, lately the slightly washed out black jeans are what I have been absolutely loving I just feel as if it makes the outfit a little less plain. Also those specific jeans from Ghanda are soooo friggin’ comfy I recommend you guys get a hand on a pair. Also, I love the merci t-shirt, however, I will say if you do get a t-shirt like this I recommend getting it in a different colour just because the white get soo dirty easily and I don’t even wear it that much. Also the shoes, need I say more about those.

This next one, is an outfit I absolutely love and will definitely be wearing it a lot this season.

Zara Overalls- $100

Calvin Klein Bra- $50

Zara Shoes- ( I bought these ages ago and actually cannot remember how much they were)

GMS silver Rings- $10-20

Tiffany and Co Bracelet- $200

Tiffany and Co Necklace $200

Overalls are completely making a comeback in any way possible, and it is amazing because it seriously makes the outfit so much easier. You practically only have to remember one item. I usually pair any Calvin Klein little bra underneath, I just think it adds something a little bit different to the outfit rather than, having too much going on. I think it is important to remember that you can keep fashion simple, yet effective and stylish.

The last one is actually one of my personal favourites.

Red Top Factorie- $30

Ghanda black ripped washed Skinny Jean- $45

Pull and Bear Sneakers- ( I got them for 10 euro)

Prada Black Bag- $2400

Tiffany and Co Bracelet- $200

Tiffany and Co necklace- $200

GMS Silver Rings- $10-20

This last outfit has one of my absolute most favourite things ever and that is a pop of red. Having that little spice of colour, can completely change your outfit. And can make a seemingly average outfit have that special x- factor. That is the most important thing to remember when it comes to fashion, is that the whole outfit does not have to be wow. You can just have one or two items that really speak for themselves. That is what I feel I have achieved here. Also, you can use any black bag, I just went and got my Prada one but it really doesn’t matter I just felt a black bag compliments this outfit nicely.

I really hope you guys enjoyed my blog post and I might be able to do, more fashion kind of ones if you guys like them. So let me know what you think and I can keep coming up with fab outfit ideas.

Ruts, Dreams and Stress!!!!

Hey Guys,

I know I said I was going to write a more beauty oriented blog post today. But I have had this extreme overwhelming feeling today of been a bit of a failure and feeling as if my life isn’t moving forward. I know the story that sometimes in life you have to take a few steps back, and then go a few steps forward. I try my absolute hardest to be as positive as possible on this blog. However, this was just a feeling I felt I really could not ignore.

I don’t know if any of you feel this way, but do you ever feel as if you aren’t really moving forward in life and you aren’t really achieving anything and you are sort of just there. That is basically where I am at now. Because I guess in order for me to feel like I’m going to the next level in life, I need to have quite a bit of money saved up. Hence, why for the moment before I save up any money I really to just need to work and exist, instead of thriving for the moment. Which if you are incredibly impatient like me, can be a seriously hard thing to do. I do feel as if I find it difficult to just wait things out and not rush into anything too fast, before I am done living.

I also feel, because I am incredibly creative and do want ways for that creativity to come up and I know there are tonnes of work I really want to do on my blog, for it to get to the stage that I want it to be at. I have all these creative ideas, and ways that I want to express that, and sometimes I feel like I completely lack the execution of it. Or that there is literally 100 things and ideas running through my head. And there is just too many thoughts going around that even getting out one creative idea, can feel like a million things going on.

I definitely want better and more creative photography on my blog, and I sort of just feel like right now I’m not really achieving that. So I guess no. 1 of me not feeling as if I am a complete failure that is wasting away, would be to start getting more creative and getting my ideas out there. It would be to find a way to take those fashion shots, to really get my creative energy out there. And I would completely love to get a fashion post of a bunch of outfits out there, because let me tell you that fashion really is my damn passion. But it would require me to try and find a photographer and to get a concept of outfits together (which would be my dream tbh) but that also means a significant amount of money. And sometimes I feel that is what is holding me back, is the shear amount of money I feel like it will cost me. And it may be money that I feel as if I don’t have.

But at the end of the day it will be something that makes me incredibly happy, and therefore to some extent extremely worth it. After I go and feel incredibly guilty about how much I spent (crying face emoticon).  Gosh I really feel as if I just went on another random ramble again with this post. But seriously if anyone knows what I am talking about help a girl out over here. Give me advice or anything I would seriously appreciate it.

Do any of you feel like this?

New Job. New Beginnings!!!

Hey Guys,

I’m back again after a decent break off. But I have some seriously awesome news and that is I have finally found a job down at my parents.  Which literally makes me sooo happy since I seriously need the money at this point and my birthday is coming up so having money would just be nice tbh. And in addition to that, they seriously are the most incredible bosses I have ever had in the history of bosses. I honestly have no idea, what I did to deserve bosses and the ability to have a job like this, but I am so insanely grateful for it.

This brings me into what I am wanting to discuss this blog post and that is attitude and your character. When I was younger and I would do jobs or any task in life, I always thought it was about how well you did the task, to whether your boss liked you. But the older I have gotten the more I have begun to realise that it is all about your attitude as an employee. If you do an awesome job, but in the process you are mean to staff or just in general are not being a kind person, then the boss is honestly less likely to want to keep you in the business.  But if you mess up a million times, but are constantly trying your best and giving it your all and in the process are being an all round super nice person. They are likely to want to keep working with you.

It’s weird because I feel like when we were younger our whole lives, we are told we need to be good at this and that, but no one ever tells us that a good character is important. Being able to understand others points of view and making others want to come to work and want to be their best selves. Is likely to get you further.

It really shows with my most recent boss,  there is an employee there who just really isn’t that nice to staff, although she is really good at her job. The boss, you can tell just doesn’t like her at all, because of how she treats other people. As in you should treat the bosses and employees with the same amount of respect if you want to get anywhere in life in general.

I sort of feel like this post totally seemed to have no purpose and I went on a complete tangent, but tomorrow a more beauty oriented post will be up. Just because I have been buying up a bunch of makeup recently.

Do you have any life advice?

Fears, Failures and Success!!!!

Hey Guys,

Here I go again, posting again. I honestly have no day job at the moment and I have a lot of time to think so that means seriously frequent posts. This post I am going to talk about, fear in terms of fear of the future, and failing to live in the present enough and always worrying about what will happen. I’m pretty sure I have probably mentioned this before on my blog, that independence and feel like I am moving forward in life is extremely important for me. So when I feel as if I am wasting my day and when I feel as I can’t reach success. I’m not even sure if I am making a lot of sense right now. But what I mean is, I feel as if I am not working towards a long term and sustainable goal to work towards as such. And by that I mean career goals.

If I am going to be honest I am an incredibly impatient person, and so not having immediate success is quite frustrating (obviously nothing ever has immediate success in general). But because what I’m doing isn’t what society is thinking is success it sometimes stresses me out. I know what you are thinking and honestly I always preach about it to. That you should just do you. And not worry about the opinions of others and find what makes you happy. But I also do think everyone has one of those days where you just feel unsuccessful, you just doubt yourself and you feel as if you are just not doing enough. And I guess that is my mood right now.

Because I feel as if i have big dreams and because they will often take time and involve taking baby steps, it can be seen that maybe I’m not making any progress. Like it can seem as if I am no moving forward in life and that is a huge fear of mine. I do want to have goals and I do want to have a career, because I absolutely love working and the thought of not having any of that terrifies me.

Do you guys have similar feelings?

Carly 🙂
