Yesterday towards the end of my shift, my darling friend Olivia came to say hello and do some writing whilst I finished my shift and then had a lovely chat afterwards. When I came down into the bar she was chatting to two weird and drunk guys, after they left I asked why and she said for the research. At first I laughed because they were so uncomfortable to talk to and I would have avoided any eye contact at all times when sat in a bar alone but as I thought more about it, I realised how interesting it is that she puts herself into those positions to learn more for her writing and get more experiences. It is always a huge learning situation to speak to different people from all different backgrounds and views so that you can learn and understand and of course get great content to talk and write about. A lot of my blogging is about outfits and styles and beauty products, plus ways to change things in your life to live more sustainable. However the most important part is for me to learn about other peoples views and to learn about new ways to live eco friendly because then I can share and grow. I myself have to grow more to be able to put myself into the situations where I ask more questions and learn. People in Sweden are not so open to randomly talk to you on the train or in a coffee shop but once they have had a few drinks they will talk forever. So that was my very exciting life lesson of yesterday, to become the influencer that I want to be I have to put myself out there more and learn as much as I can all the time.

Pink is my all time favourite colour right now, when I have been looking at second hand stores I am drawn to the pink colours coming from the rails. Here is my favourite outfit at the moment, its comfortable and pink and different materials. The more I am learning about the fashion trends I like and the different materials that fit me, the more I learn about the great types of fashion that exist. Different outfits we wear can represent our emotions of the day, I will never wear the same type of clothing every day because I will never feel the same way all the time.

What do you guys think of this outfit? I have been trying to find more corduroy trousers at the second hand store but I believe they are becoming very popular now or people have stopped giving them in. I am off now to do a photo shoot and have a yummy lunch, I hope you all have the best day!

Life feels stressful a lot of the time, there are not that many weeks where I think wow this week has been so easy and stress free. There are always things to do, people to see, chores to be completed and of course work. My main goal in life is to have a job that makes me happy so that I can wake up and be excited for the day, although I am not stupid enough to think every day would be easy and care free but everyone should feel like they are doing something they love all the time. What that job is, I have not got a clue at all. There are so many different paths that I want take and although I will try to do as many of them as I can, realistically unless I live forever I do not have enough time. But the most important thing is to feel like I am needed and achieving something great, the worst feeling that I struggle with is feeling like what I am doing means nothing and that is why my blog is so important to me because it is something that makes me happy and I know with every post I could potentially even be inspiring one person and that means so so so much to me.

As I made my way to work this morning, sipping my green tea (in my bamboo sustainable reusable cup, which I will talk about in another post) I was thinking about how much I have been working recently and how excited I am for this weekend, because I am going to do NOTHING. I want to watch movies and eat candy basically. However, when thinking of doing nothing I get this panicking feeling rising in my chest, when will I do the washing, when will I get some blog posts done, what am I going to post on Instagram, what do I have to organize for the upcoming week. But I need to Breath.

It is okay to take a breath, to stop what you are doing and just take in your surroundings. Take out your headphones and walk along the street and notice what is around you, get out of your head bubble of thoughts and stress and just enjoy the fact that you are here, living your life and that is amazing. I have always been bad at realizing that what I am doing is great for me and I have achieved a lot already in my almost 21 years. There is no race to be anything but what makes me happy and that I need to take in my surroundings every now and then and think damn I live in Sweden, like what on earth am I doing here and how crazy is my life right now.

There is a lot going on in my life right now, I have a very sick family member and different decisions that I have to make to decide what my goal is for next year. Plus, I am working hard to get my social media off the ground so that I can share with everyone the joys of living earth friendly. But this weekend I am going to take a breath, to enjoy being at home and spend some time with myself so that I can think about all the important decisions that are coming up and spend some time facetiming my family and clear my mind so that I can start again next week feeling refreshed and ready to do lots of work. Most importantly with this taking a breath decision is to make the most of the people you love, I want to make sure that I never take a day for granted with them and to optimize every chance I have to see them. I miss my family at home every single day, but I love my family here in Sweden so much too, even if they are a very new family, I want to spend every moment I can to breath them all in and hold them close, and that includes friends as they are your chosen family. I hope you all take that time too, have some me time and not only do good for the environment but for yourself too!

My Family!

Today is Monday, the beginning of a new week or for me who has worked all weekend, it feels like the end of the week. This is now the second weekend of what feels like a very busy month, and is nowhere near calming down yet either. This week is Press week in Stockholm, which is extremely exciting as it is my first. I moved here last year just as it was coming to an end, and I saw my darling friends ​Olivia and ​Megan, have a blast. I am super excited to meet different PR companies and have the opportunity to introduce myself.

Due to an unfortunate weekend last week of missing a flight and booking too late, it became a very very expensive trip, so I have picked up as many shifts as I can at work to be able to save myself before Christmas comes. But that means little time to be able to just sit down and think, or relax. I have a whirlwind of thoughts flying around in my head but seem unable to catch them to be able to organise and calm myself. But as I was looking through my phone today, looking at all the pictures I have stored for the last year, it shocks me to see how much has changes, and 1000% for the better. This time last year, I would never have been able to go to Press week, I wouldn’t have even known what it was and had that missing in my life. I also have much more passion when it comes to fashion, beauty and of course sustainability. I have made many changes at home that makes all the difference and makes me feel like I am making a difference. But most importantly is the people I have met, my friends that are by me no matter what, and me by them. I absolutely love my girls and feel so happy and privileged to have met so many different people.

I have had some rough times recently, where my emotions have been running wild and I have not had the energy to do very much. But during this busy time, where I have forced myself to get up earlier in the mornings and go out longer in the evenings, I have realised how lucky I am to be where I am right now and how excited I am for the future. I have a re-found energy that I will be using for myself. It is more than okay to feel down, to hide in your blankets and shield yourself from the world, but remember that it is good to lean on people when you are struggling to stand straight, because your friends and family love you and will always support you. You are never alone in this world or in your mind, and when you are ready, jump up and do what makes you happy because that is the best and only way to live your life!

I always thought that during my travels I had really found who I am, but now I realise that I still have no idea what I am going to do next, things are changing more and more and this is really the most important learning stage of my life. Make sure you say yes to lots of things as you may be surprised by what you learn you are capable of or what you actually enjoy! Look out sustainable, marketing, PR, influencing world, I am coming for you!

I have been lucky enough to travel a lot, I have never had a family that stayed by a pool for the whole holiday and although sometimes a relaxing time is needed, I am very glad that my parents have helped teach me what it is to explore, to become friends with the locals and really experience different cultures. In my 20 years of life I have been to 21 countries and that is not nearly enough. Every time I visit somewhere new I love to learn a few words to show interest and politeness and I try to stay off the tourist tracks so that I can really immerse myself into my surroundings. During my travels, I found that I knew I would never end my journey in England, there was too much to see and explore and I had already lived a large part of my life at home in the comforts of Surrey, so want to really push myself to experience everything I want to. Right now, I live in Sweden. This country really offers a lot especially in terms of children and studying so I can absolutely see myself spending a large part of my parenting and studying life here, however I am absolutely not done with living in exciting places, even if I can only do 6 months at a time, I will definitely do so.

At this moment in my life I am making the decision on what I want to study and where, often people go through this straight after school but I couldn’t decide what my passions were and whether I even wanted to study at that point. Its hasn’t even been until I started writing this blog, and realising how much I loved sustainability that I was completely sure that was the direction I wanted to go in. However, I am still in the processes of deciding if I want to just study sustainability or if I want to study something with a broader angle like business and marketing. As I take all these steps towards figuring out what is next, I am very thankful that I have this blog to write what I am learning about every day and I hope in the future with some studying under my belt, I will be able to take this blog to more countries and find out about lots of different ways to be sustainable and fashionable at the same time. I always have a look at the new fashion labels around the world with a sustainable theme and it makes me very excited to think that one day I will be able to experience and share all of these amazing companies, people and products first hand.

I would love to hear about any companies you guys know about or admire regardless of where they are so as I sit at my computer in Sweden I can already start exploring the future possibilities with you all xx

I recently did a video of how to create your own pair of shorts, I just wanted to show you all that the creations I will be making on my blog, and the things I write about I actually do too. I wore these shorts a lot on my holidays and think they are great! I hope you all get some inspiration from the things you read and get to use it in your every day life!

I believe there is so much importance when it comes to living by what I write, everything that I want to share with you will mean a lot to me and be in line with my sustainable views.

It is important for us to all be true to what we believe in and I want to show that I will work hard to make my little difference for my future children to live in a greener world xx
