FRIDAY FACT ABOUT ME: I love walking around cities and finding pretty flower shops. There is something so uplifting about the fact that florists display all that beauty for us to enjoy, even if we don't want to splurge and buy anything. I always make sure to stop for a minute and really appreciate it and breathe it in 🌸 #fridayintroductions#instantretreat
I went to @wagamama_uk for the first time on Sunday but just had juice and tea because I wasn't very hungry and going somewhere for the first time makes me nervous because of my allergies. Might go for actual food there in the next week or two though as it looked and smelled good! What's your favourite Wagamama dish?
Mia nonna era una sarta quando ancora si usavano i cartamodelli. Il tavolo della cucina era spesso ingombro di abiti solo abbozzati, alcuni già imbastiti, tessuti e fili.
Il ricordo che ho di lei è di una schiena china sulla macchina per cucire a pedale: una di quelle macchine antiche, con le gambe di ferro intarsiate che emettevano un rumore metallico, quasi ipnotico. Stavo ore a guardarla cucire e quando iniziai ad interessarmi di moda lei commentò “hai preso la mia malattia”. Forse aveva ragione.
Tutti noi eravamo vestiti da capi cuciti con le sue mani: praticamente indossavamo l’amore. Non è quindi un caso se, tra tutti gli abiti che nel tempo ha cucito per me, il ricordo più vivido che ho è quello di un cappottino rosso fuoco. Lei amava dire che se avevi un bel capotto potevi girare il mondo.
Ho sempre pensato fosse un’esagerazione ma col tempo ho capito cosa intendeva dire: giacche e cappotti sono il pezzo forte del guardaroba e richiedono una fattura particolarmente curata, in grado di vestirci perfettamente.
E così adesso sono anche la mia ossessione e quella dei cappotti é la sezione più fornita del mio guardaroba. L’ultimo in ordine di arrivo é questo spolverino in neoprene stampato effetto pelliccia di @lafilledesfleurs. Ma raccontatemi di voi: quali sono i vostri capi preferiti?
Risk it all!

This video is about making sacrifices and taking the risks to get what you want.
Andre @flawlessfocusfilmz and I are in Asia filming for the next year.
This is a huge leap but we are willing to take the risks to get what we want in life.
We have a vision and a plan to get to where we want to be.
I hope all of you follow us on our journey and through this are able to do what y’all want to do. Create the lives you want to have and be able to not look back.
I’m nervous but I can’t let any type of thought or emotion get in the way of what I’m set out out to do.
When you want something you make it happen.
This is my first video and first time behind the camera like this so I’m still getting used to presenting.
I know what I have to say is powerful so have to workout the kinks for the next video and get better.
This is a learning and growing process and that’s part of what makes this journey such a huge experience.

^^^^^^^^ me tearing my hair out at yet another woman telling me they aren't eating carbs in a bid to lose weight 🙈
This post will cut to the chase if you want a more detailed insight, click on bio and join my group.
My take on carbs is simply this
💥 yes, you can survive on little carbs and still have energy
💥 yes, you will still be able to your brain and body function well .
💥 yes, having little carbs on diets such as keto, Atkins etc have proven health and weight loss benefits
So, if it's the road you feel you can work with and will enjoy, crack on and keep doing your thing
My issue here is embarking on diets because your .
💥 Ill informed and not been educated enough or done your own research.
💥 using it as a weighloss tactic because you think it's the optimal way and consumption of carbs are bad. .
I have a list as long as this page on why carbs are good for you and why for many they are essentially vital for women and why some women need more ( click link in bio for full article) .
The main things I need to make clear for anyone just using it to lose weight to have these considerations
💥protein is your main focus and as long as your in a calorie deficit, you can consume carbs
💥 if carbs make you feel you have more energy, happier and deal with your menstrual cycle better, keep them in your diet for sustainability and consistency
💥 moderate or remove the carbohydrates that are giving you problematic symptoms but you don't need to remove all carbs.
💥 if you enjoy eating carbohydrates to restrict them, you'll feel deprived and result in likelihood of binging. I suggest trialling the amount you consume or what types work best but doesn't need complete removal.
No food is bad. Ever. .
It's all about enjoyment, sustainability, consistency and optimising this to create a plan that will give you the desired outcome. .

I've been called a wildflower a time or two in my life. I've always strived to shine bright in the strangest of places. I'm never one to fit with the normal, but I work hard to grow myself constantly against the odds. So it was fitting, I guess.
I've had a rough couple of weeks. I've let people down, hurt people, and surprised some. If I'm honest -- I'm unfocused, overwhelmed, and beyond maxed out. I'm trying to learn to budget my efforts for things that bring me joy. I love art, but I can't remember the last time I opened a sketchbook. I love movies, I can't remember I've seen one in theaters. I can't remember the last full week I've slept in my own bed.
This isn't a post looking for pity, or a solution because I'm strongly working towards one. This is a post that says, even on my brightest day as a wildflower making growing in the strangest of places look easy. It's still challenging. I'm still human. I still make mistakes and disappoint people who love me when I pour from an empty cup.
And, you know what? That's okay. Because it's a reminder to grow harder, grow taller, and to always remember to be a beautiful surprise where I don't belong.

Как Научиться Любить Осень⁉️
Осень - мое любимое время года. Почему? Да по кочану. Ну тут меня спросили "как же ее полюбить", и я задумалась. Ну вот так попробуйте?
Да, серо и мокро (особенно в нашем Ванкувере, но ⛔️
1️⃣Какие красивые листья!🍂🍁Глядите вокруг, природа для вас старается как бы оживить всю эту серость.
2️⃣При дожде вся эта осенняя красота ещё ярче. Деревья отражаются в лужах и мокром асфальте. Неоновые знаки и вывески тоже. Обожаю идти по центру и любоваться.
3️⃣На улице меньше подозрительного и плохопахнущего народу, развалившегося на солнышке. 💯WIN
4️⃣Разнообразие в одежде! Ну, эт мое любимое. Столько всего можно одеть, скомбинировать, попробовать. Разные сапоги, мягкие свитера, пальто, шляпки, блузки. Мне кажется, осенью куда шире размах для экспериментов.
5️⃣Ну ребят, все это нытьё и хандра в вашей голове 🤷🏻♀️. Конечно, и у меня бывает. И даже часто. Но не даём этому состоянию нас поглотить и меняем настрой! Музыка, шопинг, ванна, еда, спорт, друзья - как вам угодно❣️
Саша будет писать мини-блоги тут, да-да! Ну и по-русски постарается 😜
Улыбка-самое мощное оружие!
Ей можно поднять настроение прохожему, сделать кого-то чуточку счастливее, а также в нее можно влюбиться раз и навсегда!❤️
Дарим улыбки,хорошее настроение и море впечатлений!
Пространство Высоко-пространство для ваших событий!
