motivate yourself

quote motivate

We really all DO have a choice. When I want to motivate myself, I read lots of amazing motivational books and basically surround myself by stuff that inspires me. I love searching the internet to find great videos, and stories of people who are really successful and reaching for their dreams.

In the past I had to stop and evaluate my friendships and really cut out all the negative people in my life. Spent time with some wise and wonderful friends and family, time in nature sitting under a tree and just thinking about nothing. ie. meditating. All these things got me back into happy mode, and they always seem to do the trick. At the moment I have a little ritual of making myself a nice hot chocolate in the evening, listening to music and writing a journal entry (personally I like to write to God, that’s my way of finding answers). Currently I’m focusing on meditating again, and it’s really getting me into the zen state!!!

Mix it Up!

“It’s a new era in fashion – there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.”
– Alexander McQueen


So, so true! I love mixing it up and wearing what makes me feel happy, and whatever expresses my unique style. P.s. This Tote Bag was with me everywhere on my trip to Greece! I love that it’s practical, stylish and very affordable!

“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.”

- Groucho Marx


Be You

Quote for the day…

The greatest act of courage is to be & own all that you are. Without apology. Without excuses & without any masks to cover the truth of who you truly are.

A quick update from an Internet Cafe in Nafplion Greece!

Did you know that Nafplion was the first capital of Greece? It’s a must visit, with lots of historical value. I walked up the palimithi (fortress/castle) which has 999 steps!

We arrive to the Island of Ithra! The boys were saying this water was the clearest and most beautiful they have ever swam in. We spent 2 hours there. I ate a corn and tuna salad, and George had a whole pizza to himself! *Wearing TimiAlaere

denim outfit

My staple outfit on this trip. Have been mixing it up with different coloured sandals & tops, and sometimes skirts.



YUM-O! Waffles! <3


The cafes here are so pretty! Love all the decor. Pink and green cushions, and modern comfie couches.

So far I have been to Nafplion, a friends wedding in Mykonos and to my boyfriends father’s village, Isari. Tomorrow, off to the Island of Spetses.

Bit hard to find time to hop on the net, which I guess is a good thing. I’m really enjoying this holiday. I hope I can do this for at least 4 weeks of every year. LOVE TRAVEL – do you? x
