Double Rainbow

Good Morning World!

I am defiantly one of those people who’s mood is affected by the weather. Rain makes me miserable, the sun makes me happy and clouds are not friends. So when staring out my window on a cold rainy day I felt sluggish, but because I saw a rainbow I felt inspired.

Rainbows tell us to hold onto hope, and believe beyond the shadow of doubt when following our hearts desires. But a double rainbow opens up the path of personal magic. Its a signal to be true to yourself and know that the universe is conspiring on your behalf. Its shows that your intuition is keener than you imagined and is urging you to trust your gut.

I am and always have been a keen believer in Astrology. I believe that there are certain things in our lives that our uncontrollable, but I also believe that there are certain things we have to do for ourselves. I agree that there are certain people in this world that you are meant to meet, some to help you grow, or some to help you to learn but I believe that that’s it, it is you that has to actively go out and learn these lesson, this is something the universe cannot do for you. I know this phenomenon is not a favourite in everyone but I do have a point.

Rainbows mean just this! They bring hope and are the key for believing in your greatest desires. I know symbolism doesn’t mean anything in a broad sense, and if you passively look at anything then things won’t happen. This post isn’t about the wonderful nature of rainbows and how they magically bring you good things. Its about believing you can do something. I know that when I have someone behind me cheering me on, like your parents do a sports day, its so much easier to do well. You’re making someone else proud as well as yourself.

They hold the key for unlocking desire and achieving something you have always wanted to do. If you look at this on a simple level, before I saw that rainbow I wasn’t in the mood to do anything that day, the rain makes you want to sit inside in front of the TV, but that light of inspiration lead to this blog post, and it led me see the light in most things. What I am trying to say is, there is light in everything you do. There may be bad times but it takes a small piece of light to realise your motivation. This light (the rainbow) helps you to achieve things, it brings you hope, it brings motivation and above all it brings you magic.

How I’m Transitioning My Wardrobe

Good Morning World!

Last year me would’ve said “Its a little late to be putting this post up”, but this year me knows that because of the weather, May is the first time I can properly say Spring has arrived. The weather recently has been a bit of a joke, well more than a bit. Just when we thought it was picking up again, it goes and rains. Come on now Mother Nature, make up your mind.

Sorry about the weather negativity, we get enough of that all year round. For me spring is about the florals. Very cliché of me, I know! But we all know it’s true. The trick for me is getting the right balance of winter and summer into your middle season outfit. I picked up this little blouse from Topshop, and I think it says spring beautifully. The floral pattern accoupanied with the white spots adds something different. My favourite thing about this blouse however is the sleeves, I am in love with this feminine bow detail.

The beautiful down button detailing along with the petlum style makes this top extra special.

Winter to me is all about dark, strong colours. My style in the colder months is a little more edgy, and adding this to a girly top for me creates something different. I paired this top with some black jeans, I did this to stop the overshadowing of summer. I also added a big metal belt and a thick jacket, because spring is about those layers too.

6 Ways To Practice Self-Care

Good Morning World!

The last couple of months I have felt the happiest I have ever been, this second half of my Univeristy year has made me realise how much I enjoy life. A few months back, I was stuck in a rut, I wanted to quit Univeristy and I was holding onto so much of my past that I needed things to change. Looking back at my life year ago it makes me happy to know I have grown up so much, I have so many new friends who care about me and reciprocal, but above all that I am now truly happy. I wanted to share some of the things that have helped me (in more ways than one) turn my life upside down.

1. Choosing Friends.

It sounds so cliché and petty when you hear it out loud but it does make a difference. Sometimes that friend that you’ve had for years isn’t always looking out for you best interest. I have met people at Univeristy that look out for me more than some people from back home I have known for years. Amount of time isn’t a marker of friendship. The key point here is ‘choose’. Don’t give someone the time of day when they can’t spare a moment for you.

2. Self-Discipline

Lets talk about it on a modest level, lets face it I wasn’t the most motivated person in the world. I use to hardly do any work and just continue living my life pretending things don’t exist. But since January I have a schedule and an eating plan. But its not enough to just have these things. You have to stick to them. Learn to say ‘no’ to other things, when your work needs to be done, do it. Don’t get your head turned, put yourself and your future first.

3. Me-Time

To quote Oscar Wilde “be yourself, everyone else is taken”, so make sure you take some time to love yourself. I’m not talking about this take a bubble bath nonsense of me-time, I’m talking about talking time out of your day to focus on yourself, and preparing yourself for the next move. Whether that be waking up an hour earlier on the day of a big presentation to evaluate what needs to be done before, or maybe even ditching a night out to stay home and recharge. Focus on you.

4. Sleep

There is nothing I will stress more. I know a lot of people especially at Univeristy prioritise other things over sleep, and I have to hold my hands up and say I am at fault to this too. Lack of sleep has a negative effect on performance and you are unable to work to your best ability if this is lacking. It has been known for students to pull an all-nighter the day before an assignment is due in, but this will only have a negative effect on you, it wont be your best work.

5. Spending Quality Time with Quality People

It can be hard to juggle your social, work and study life all at once. I find that spending time with the family and friends who know you best can be a refreshing and uplifting. I know we all have those friends who we put up an imagine for, and I have them myself, but enjoying the company of those who you can be 100% yourself around makes everything easier. They understand you, and wont judge you on anything.

6. Managing Your Finances

Being a student, this is a must. Its the first time we are living on our own and we go a little crazy with money. So this little system will help you from splashing the cash. Everyone has a different monthly income to its important to correspond this with how you live your life. Work out how much money you have for the month and use this to calculate how much you have a week. I know that at Univeristy I have £50 to live off every week, I allot a third of this money to food, a third to necessities for example face wipes and toiletries, and the rest is used for me to have fun, which at uni means nights out. Its important to stick to this, I know for some people this can be hard, but one way of making sure is to take out X amount of money every week (in my case £50) and have it in cash, that way you wont be able to overspend like if you used your card.

The truth about self-care shouldn’t be in how you pamper yourself  with luxurious bath products and cleansers but be something we give ourselves credit for every day, for looking after ourselves. I ask everyone reading this to do what I did and look back at how far you’ve come and praise yourself for it, be proud of your achievements no matter how small. Only then can you master the art of self-care.
