Practicing SELF - CARE Part 2 I TIPS

Good morning! It's 9 am and I decided to write here, because when I saw this perfect weather outside I felt motivated enough to open my blog and start writing. In my last post I promised that this one will be about mental self care. This type of self care might be one of the hardest. Because controlling your emotions is easier than controlling your mind and your psychological state.



''If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete''
                                                                 - Jack Kornfield
Online you can find billions of tips, examples and advice on how to help yourself with this kind of situation. So mine won't be any special, just a few tips which you could try to use if you want.



  • Read a book. Reading a book has always been a thing that will relax ones mind and might even help to fall asleep. It can also change your opinion about others, because in books there are millions of characters with different mindset, so that might help to expand your outlook.
  • Learn a new skill. Trying new things might be a good opportunity to spend your free time usefully. Because, lets admit it, nowadays most of us complain that we have nothing to do..
  • Drawing. Well, about this, there is nothing much to tell. Only one thing that everybody knows. Drawing is therapeutic so don't be afraid if you can't draw like Van Gogh, just put all your mind into it and you will feel a lot better than before.
  • Do a DIY project. This one is interesting. Because, every time you will do it, DIY will distract your minds from all your problems and you will be concentrated only on the thing you are doing.
  •  Color. Coloring is almost like drawing and doing a DIY. Great opportunity to relax and concentrate on it. There are various types of coloring therapy so you should try a few.
  • Turn your phone off. Okay, as much as I don't like to say that, but we need to put our phones away. I mean not for all day, but at least for an hour or 30 minutes, it doesn't matter. But, from time to time we all need to run away from all the social media and just let our minds relax from all that pressure social media gives us. I am doing this and it really gives me good vibes and trust me I'm not disappointed. 
And once again I hope it will be useful for you as it is for me. Enjoy the autumn and see you in the next post!

Autumn means fresh? & Christmas is coming I ChitChat

In our lives we all have ups and downs. It isn't something surprising. Right now I have one of those downs. I mean even though I'm at the place where I always want to spend my time, there is still something missing. And the most annoying thing is that I don't know what it is. I have amazing friends & a perfect relationship with my mom. That's all I needed, but somehow that is not all. I do want to do a lot of stuff with my life to make it better, but there is zero motivation to start making those steps. Those steps and things are really simple and easy, for example book for a driving school. I do keep talking about it but still can't manage to sign in. There are so many more things to do and at this moment I just have no strength & motivation. Yes, I already googled infinite amount of tips of how to pull myself together, but all I feel is exhaust.




Anyway, I hope it will fade away soon and now lets talk about Christmas!!! I already heard Christmas songs in a…

Halloween vibes & new resolutions I ChitChat

Hello to all of you! Once again I'm laying in my bed, drinking muffin-flavoured tea and scrabbling here. Today's topic won't be anything special, just a simple post that I decided to write on a Wednesday evening.
So to begin with I changed my hair color.. (once again...) and I'm happy with it! I mean, I'm truly enjoying this color. It is kind of a pastel pink and rose gold mix. At first when I dyed it I was like ''Jesus what have I done...''. But now I'm thinking that I will leave this color for as long as possible. Also Halloween is almost here and now that I'm with pink hair it is easier to do makeup for that occasion. Still don't know exactly what or who I'll be, but I'm planning to do a video of my Halloween makeup tutorial. I think it will be great. Hope so.
Also I want to talk more about ''new resolutions'' subject. I know that every time of the year, every month I'm talking about how I want to change, sta…

What's in my cosmetic bag? Travel edition I TIPS

Hello to all of you! Tomorrow will be 24th of December so it means Christmas came really fast this year hasn't it? Also, tomorrow me and my grandmother will be going to other city. To celebrate Christmas with my cousins and their parents. We will be taking a train so it will be fun. And with that I want to start the topic which I will be talking today.
When it comes to travel lets all agree - at the beginning we all get headaches what to bring with us, what to wear and many more. Personally, I get headache only with calculating time. I mean - calculating how much I will spend time getting ready, when I need to leave my house and etc. Because my biggest problem is a fear of being late. I don't become crazy while choosing what to wear, I get crazy when I don't make certain things on time.
Anyway, I won't be talking about time, clothes or what makeup you should do on journey day. I will tell what I am bringing with myself in my cosmetic bag all the time. So enjoy reading …
