I never do New Year’s resolutions because in my book every day is a new day and a possibility to make a change or begin a new chapter. Nevertheless, what I always do at the end of each year is a kind of reflection of the year that has gone by and evaluate whether it was productive and whether I need to have a clearer focus next year.
The people who have followed my social medias and this blog since its birth in 2014, know that I have always been very career focused and that my career has always been the highlight of my life because I have never really had to overcome any obstacles – everything I have wanted has just come to me and I have not had to work very hard to get what I have wanted.
On the contrary, my personal life has always been a bit of a shit show. Roller coaster relationships and a fragile mental health daunted by death and existential anxiety. And while I have done two rounds of counselling, which made me understand why I am the way I am and why I act the way I do and why I choose the men I do, I never truly made an effort to improve myself.
However, 2018 has been the opposite for me. For the first time in a very long time, I have faced obstacles in my career and it has kind of been put on the back-burner. Instead, this year I have truly focused on my happiness. I have made some pretty big changes in my life that I feel not only have improved my own happiness, but that have made me a better person.
I have fully and truly emerged myself into a more spiritual lifestyle of crystals and meditation that have helped me fill my life with more positivity and less negativity. This naturally led me to stop going out in Mayfair. Following on from that, I decided to only eat a plant based diet at the beginning of the year to feed my body and mind with produce from the earth, and not dead beings and I have stuck by this. My most recent decision involves quitting the consumption of alcohol.
A spiritual journey is an endless one, but I already feel happier, kinder and more at peace with life. So even though I may not have excelled in my career this year, I feel like the progression I have made in my personal life is far greater than any promotion or pay rise.
I am back people!
As you are all probably aware, I have taken a break from the blog for a couple of months because I felt I had to focus on other things. I now feel I am re-focused and I have a very clear view of where I want to take the blog from now on. Previously, the blog has been more of a lifestyle blog, and while some of those elements will still remain, the new focus will be my passion – BEAUTY!
With that in mind, please let me know what you want to see on the blog hereafter. Vlogs? Make Up Tutorials? Product Reviews? Ahhh I get excited just writing about it!
Tänkte rekommendera en restaurang som jag var på när jag hade min graduation. Skylon, som restaurangen heter, ligger i The Royal Festival Hall där min graduation ceremony hölls. Så jag och pappa gick dit efter för att äta lunch. Var positivt överraskad då utsikten var vacker (den ligger precis på floden) och maten var supergod. Gillade även inredningen som var modern. Vi var ju där på lunch, men kan tänka mig att det är mysigt för middag också!
// I thought I would recommend a restaurant that I went to on my graduation. Skylon, which is the name of the restaurant, is located inside The Royal Festival Hall where my graduation ceremony took place. So dad and I went there afterwards to have lunch. I was actually very impressed because the view was lovely (it was right on the river) and the food was really tasty. I also liked that the interior design was very modern. Vi only had lunch, but I can imagine that it would be good for dinner too! //
Igår åt jag och Natasha lunch på Harvey Nichols Roof Terrace. Det var så fint väder och eftersom det var Bank Holiday så var alla lediga så kändes som en självklarhet att ta vara på dagen. Efter lunch drog vi vidare till Aqua roof terrace där vi drack cider fram tills kvällen. Supermysig dag!
// Yesterday Natasha and I had lunch at the Harvey Nichols Roof Terrace. It was such nice weather and since it was Bank Holiday everyone was off work, so it felt like a must to make the most of the day. After lunch we went to Aqua roof terrace where we drank cider until evening came. Such a nice day! //
Regniga rooftops – det är standard i London! Den dagen då vi bokat bord på STK och sedan Radio Rooftop så regnar det såklart. Hade velat ta lite fina bilder på utsikten (bilden jag tog gör verkligen inte London rättvisa). Men i vilket fall som helst hade vi en trevligt kväll. Det var jag, Natasha och min vän från Sverige som var och hälsade på. Det var jag som fick uppdraget att boka en restaurang nära Radio så jag tänkte att STK blev perfekt eftersom den ligger i samma byggnad – det jag inte tänkte på var att Natasha är vegetarian och min andra vän endast äter fisk… STK är som namnet kanske avslöjar en köttrestaurang haha. Men det löste sig ändå och vi drog sedan upp till Radio där vi drack drinkar och åt Prosecco isglass. Som vanligt slutade kvällen på en nattklubb, denna gången i formen av Cirque le Soir där vi blev kvar tills stängning.
// Rainy rooftops - standard in London! The day we book a table at STK and later Radio Rooftop it of course starts raining. I wanted to take some nice pictures of the view (the picture I took doesn't do London justice). In any case we had a lovely night. It was me, Natasha and my friend from Sweden who was visiting. I was in charge of booking a restaurant close to Radio so I though STK was the perfect choice as it's in the same building - but what I didn't think about was that Natasha is a vegetarian and my other friend is a pescatarian…and STK is a steak restaurant haha. But it was fine and afterwards we had drinks and Prosecco popsicles in Radio. As per usual the night ended up at a nightclub, this time in the form of Cirque le Soir where we stayed until closing. //
Pitcher & Piano i Richmond är verkligen the place to be under sommaren. Natasha har varit i London och hälsat på den senaste veckan (ber om ursäkt för den dåliga uppdateringen!) och då blev det ett antal besök till Pitcher & Piano för vår dagliga hangover fix haha. Deras chilli cheese fries är verkligen to die for!
On another note så har jag fått många frågor om vart mina solglasögon som jag har på mig på bilden kommer ifrån. Dom är från Dior och kan hittas här.
// Pitcher & Piano in Richmond really is the place to be during the summer. Natasha has been in London for the last week (I apologize for the bad update!) and therefore we went to Pitcher & Piano on numerous occasions for out daily hangover fix haha. Their chill cheese fries really are to die for!
On another note I have gotten many questions regarding my sunglasses which I'm wearing in the pic. They're from Dior and you can find them here. //
