The Power of Vision Board

A long time ago in 2016, I had discovered something called the law of attraction. I don’t know how exactly I got there, but I remember I was on a turning point in my life, trying to change my life for the better and start living my dreams.

Law of Attraction

Googling and searching for hope, somehow I got on the page of the documentary movie ‘The secret’. I will always remember how powerful that was and an eye-opening experience. By today in 2021 I am pretty sure that majority of the people have heard of it and realized how powerful it is. Unfortunately not everyone believes in it and you can notice it by the life they live.

Vision Board

What is actually the famous vision board? This is something what represent your goals and your beliefs. It can be done on so many ways, an actual vision board or phone- version of it. The point is to find something what inspires you, goals you want to achieve, pin the picture of it, affirmations, and ensure you remind yourself daily of it- and the most important: act as you already have it.

My vision board story

A few days ago I found my ‘magic book’ where I use to write my visions and goals in ‘present tense’ as I truly and with all my heart believed that I will achieve it. The best thing is once I opened I realized 80% of my dreams already came true. Is it just a coincidence or luck? I believe it’s work towards my goals, focus on my vision, and keeping myself inspired along the way.

Start Today

I encourage you to start today and test it yourself. You have nothing to lose, the only thing you need is faith and beliefs about your dreams and vision.

It can happen everything you dream about and it will happen if you believe in it and work on your goals.

Biggest Changes: Life update

Happy Saturday! It has been a long time since my last post. Many changes happened to me & want to share it with you.

Moving to another continent

As you all know I was born and raised in Serbia, located in Europe. Since 2016 I was working abroad and traveling the world. Somehow I always knew I would live somewhere else…but never thought that would be Africa. But never say never.

My boyfriend, then fiancé… now husband, Michael, was born and raised in Namibia. Far away from Europe & Africa, we met in Miami, US. Nothing else, but destiny. Our love story is so magical and the fact we went through so much together and stayed together, makes me so grateful each day.

Opening of the coffee shop…

Since we started dating we knew we want our own business and we worked so hard towards that. Covid 19 happened last year and slowed down our plans. A year after we were planning on opening of our coffee shop & bistro -we opened it. Each day I believe more and more that dreams do come true and all obstacles that happen to you- it happens for the best.

Getting married to the man of my dreams…

Last but biggest change that happened- I married the man of my dreams. I always knew and believed I will meet him. We are so ready to continue our life together being young entrepreneurs and in love every day more.

Never stop dreaming.

Never settle for less than you deserve.

Each day work on yourself and never stop learning.

Achiever or Procrastinator?

What defines us as successful beings? Is it the way we act? Work? Think? One is sure-success has a different definition for all humans. There is 2 crucial definition of the opposite people profile. Procrastinator & Achiever.

Achiever

The persons called ‘achievers’ are action takers. They have a set mindset for success every single morning. Setting yourself up for success is no easy feat. There are a lot of things that can get in the way of your pursuits along the way and it’s important to be prepared for the worst. Successful people don’t become millionaires overnight. It is hard work every single day on the dreams and goals.

How to Become an Achiever ?

1.Set your goals & standards high and work towards every day.

2.Get up early & use your planner to plan the day.

3. Surround yourself with the positive people who compliment your ideas.

4. Never take the answer ‘No’ personal and bounce back from rejection.

5. Trust in yourself and never stop learning.

Whether you want to become a high achiever at work, in the school/ university, in sport, or any other area, the same rules apply. Dedication and discipline must be present.

Procrastinator

A procrastinator is a person who delays or puts things off. Work, after-work activities, or other actions — that should be done promptly. Procrastinator comes from the Latin verb procrastinate, which means deferred until tomorrow. Being a procrastinator is only a habit and the great thing is we can change this starting from this moment.

1.The first step is recognizing that you are a procrastinator.

2.Start keeping a to-do list and ensure it’s completed by your given timeline.

3. Do your ‘hardest’ task first. You will see how every day gets easier and you will be happier with yourself by doing this.

4.Set yourself goals with the time-line. It is the best feeling once you start achieving it.

5. You can use task and time management applications. There are numerous numbers of it and can help you to stay on track.

We’ve all been there..

At some points in our lives, I am sure we have experienced procrastination. Remember that it doesn’t define you. We change and grow every day and we must change our habits to succeed.

10 Ways to Overcome Depression

What is Depression?

Depression is something that is present nowadays and it can affect anyone. Symptoms can vary from mild to severe and can include:

  • Feeling sad or having a depressed mood
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in activities once enjoyed
  • Changes in appetite — weight loss or gain unrelated to dieting
  • Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much
  • Loss of energy or increased fatigue
  • Increase in purposeless physical activity (e.g., inability to sit still, pacing, hand-wringing) or slowed movements or speech (these actions must be severe enough to be observable by others)
  • Feeling worthless or guilty
  • Difficulty thinking, concentrating, or making decisions

I truly believe that we are the ones who must help ourselves first, however, in the case of big depression the best solution is to see a doctor specialized for it. 

If you ever feel down or depressed here are my tips to help you and ensure you are back on track.

10 Easy Tips

   1. Read a good book-  Yes, Yes!  When I say a good book, that is up to you to decide what you like to read and what would  change your feelings and make you feel better. My choice was Esther Hicks-  books from this autor changed my life completely… It is about the “Law of attraction” where you learn that we are responsible for our reality and that our thoughts reflect on our actions and life. 

 2. Watch a family/comedy movie- It is very important to chose something what will  make you  laugh. So open your Netflix and search for a movie, take some popcorns and enjoy in moment. As Christmas is coming you can always choose something related & have a fantastic time.

 3. Yoga-  If you never tried yoga before, this exercise will relax and stretch your body, calm your mindset and soul.  It is improved to feel better after doing Yoga so don’t wait, open your search- browser and find it, you can do in your room by yourself. Meditation is also something that can help with stress and anxiety. 

4.Go out with the best friend- I know that when you feel down you maybe prefer to stay home, but what you have to lose if you go out?  Few drinks or food  with your friend will make you feel better and pull you out from negative mood. 

 5. Pamper yourself- This is one of my favorite things to do when I feel bad. Turn on light candles, fill up the bath, put a mask on your face, grab a favorite body scrub, and enjoy just your time..  Sounds nice right? P.S. Don’t forget to play your favorite music.

 6. Go for a long walk- This is amazing thing to distress your body and clear your minds, just grab a bottle of water, music on and   enjoy in your own company. You will be surprised how much better you will feel after.

 7. Do something nice for somebody.. It is well known the fact when you make or do something nice for somebody it makes you feel better. Be kind with the people, treat them how you like to be treated because everything will come back to you.

 8. Weekend Escape – Book a weekend for yourself or with friends and family, go somewhere  you never been before and have amazing time. Making new memories will definitely benefit your life.

 9. Play your favorite music and DANCE ! It seems silly but it’s great thing to do. It is going to bring you to the upper level of emotion and you will feel instantly better .

 10. A LIST OF THINGS YOU ARE GRATEFUL FOR-  This could be the most important thing. It is very important to be grateful and focus on all things you have instead of focusing on things you don’t have. This will bring into your life a more and more things to be thankful for.

How to be Successful: 5 Steps You Must Follow

Definition of Success

Don’t you have a feeling you hear it everywhere lately? But what does success really means? What is a success for me does it have to be for you as well? Let’s chat about it and how to be successful.

Being successful means the achievement of desired visions and planned goals. Furthermore, success can be a certain social status that describes a prosperous person that could also have gained fame for its favorable outcome. The dictionary describes success as the following: “attaining wealth, prosperity and/or fame”

Why some people are successful and others don’t make it? As for everything in this world success also requires dedication and some very important ‘rules’. Let’s break it down.

5 Steps to Success

  1. Set up your goals: Let’s be honest: you can’t achieve a goal without having one. Deep down we all know why we are here, what is our purpose, and what we want to do. It is not always easy to figure out but I would say: follow your intuition. It is okay to be happy with one job now and then to want more/ or change your mind as through our life we grow and our goals are becoming different. So get yourself a journal/planner and write down your goals, what makes you happy and what you want to achieve in the next timeline.
  2. Establish your routine: If you speak to any of the successful persons they will tell you that they have established a routine. So what does this means? At first, make sure you wake up and go to bed every day at the same time. The next thing to watch for is your thoughts in the morning. Whether you wake up happy and grateful or moody and unhappy – this will set up the tone for the rest of the day. 99% of successful people have some kind of exercise in the morning/ yoga/ or meditation. Whatever you chose will benefit you for the long term in the future.
  3. Consistency: It is very simple if you want to be successful – you must be consistent. If you think this is the easiest part – you are wrong. Being consistent requires dedication and discipline. A lot of people fail on this step. I will always remember the words of my first manager back in the days when I was assistant: ” If it was easy everyone would do it “. Think about it.
  4. Have a vision: You must have a vision of your goals and remind yourself daily. This will help you visualize it and give you positive vibration. What also can help you is the vision board – put on your ideals, goals ( work vise, dream house, beautiful relationship, fitness, hair…anything) and you will see it as first thing in the morning. You can keep it in your room or office. There is plenty of vision boards application so you can even have it on your phone.
  5. Work hard for it: Now once we have all steps in place – this one can’t be left out. Whatever you want to achieve you must work for it and being consistent on a daily basis. If you want to be lean and fit- you must workout. If you want to be a successful blogger you must create quality content … for each goal applies the same rules. And remember to not give up. It takes 21 days to create a new habit. In this time your body and mind will try to sabotage you but you must get up and do it until you have formed a new habit.

Help Your Skin to Heal Naturally

Inside Out

Almost 90% of the population suffers from skin conditions such as eczema. acne, tired or dull skin, pimples, cysts, and breakouts… All these conditions are trying to ‘tell us ‘ that something is happening in our bodies. Reasons can vary from hormonal changes, gut problems to skin bacteria and the medication for all these concerns is -believe it or not..in food. This advice will help your skin to heal naturally so ensure to take some notes.

Skin Friends

  1. TURMERIC
  2. This magical spice comes all the way from India. We use it in the kitchen with not even knowing his healing benefits on our body and skin. You may want to try a turmeric face mask to help reduce acne and any resulting scars. The anti-inflammatory qualities can target your pores and calm the skin. Turmeric is also known to reduce scarring. This combination of uses may help your face clear up from acne breakouts. Mix one teaspoon of turmeric powder with little water/ honey or lemon juice. Apply on the clean face and leave it for 20 min before you rinse it off. For stronger benefits on your skin and overall health, you should drink turmeric and mix one teaspoon with your tea, water or make popular Turmeric Latte. Whichever way you choose, ensure to include this amazing spice and help to heal your skin.
  3. PEPPERMINT TEA
  4. This tea is well known but did you know that peppermint tea actually can help to reduce hormonal imbalance? 1- 2 cups of tea per day will have major benefits on your skin. The best to drink is before bedtime and the tea is also calming and will help with sleep.
  5. LEMON WATER
  6. Lemons are loaded with vitamin C in high concentration, which is the main ingredient in the formation of collagen in the body. Drinking lemon water can induce skin cells to detox and force out impurities and sweat which can clog pores. The best way is to drink one glass in the morning on empty stomach. And remember: for the best benefits drink warm water with lemon.
  7. CELERY JUICE
  8. Celery juice packs multiple nutrients that support skin health, such as fiber, magnesium, zinc, and vitamins A, B, C, and K. Millions of people around the world are drinking celery juice in the morning on an empty stomach and witness amazing differences and skin cures. To make celery juice follow these steps :
  1. Wash 3–4 celery stalks under running water, removing any leaves to decrease bitterness.
  2. Cut the stalks into small pieces.
  3. Add celery to the blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Place a strainer over a wide glass and pour the mixture into the strainer, pressing down to squeeze out as much liquid as possible. The juice will collect in the glass.

5. SMOOTHIES – This drink is delicious and healing. The best thing is you can mix whatever you like and make your favorite fruit or veggie drink. My favorite smoothie is a mix of banana, blueberries, and strawberries. It tastes great and it is good to drink between the meals. Ensure not to add any additional sugar as raffinate sugar is bad for skin health.

Gut Health

Humans have many bacteria in their bodies. In fact, have more of them than they have cells. Most are good for health. The ones found in the gut not only help you digest foods, but they also work all over your/our body and can be good for physical and mental health.

With the lifestyle, antibiotics, diet- we lose ‘good’ gut bacteria which can cause many health issues and one of the biggest can reflect on the skin with various conditions. However, there are good bacterias living in certain food and by eating and including in our diet we can improve gut health. You can find them in dairy products like yogurt and aged cheeses. Look on the ingredients list for live cultures of bacteria like bifidobacteria and lactobacilli. They’re also in fermented vegetables, like kimchi and sauerkraut. All this food is able to help you to heal your skin naturally.

However, if not the food, 2nd choice would be to go with probiotic tablets. Consult with the pharmacist before taking as they can help with the best choice.

5 Affordable Beauty Products That Make The Difference

Let’s Talk Beauty

You know (or not) how much I love and enjoy cosmetic & beauty products. Therefore I have decided to share with you my top 5 beauty products available in all drogeries and I will keep using them in 2021.

Maybe you will like this: Beauty Products Must Have

1. MIXA- INTENSIVE HYDRATING MILK

This product I have bought accidentally while I was searching for something else and can’t believe how much I love it. It is made with hyalourogel and perfectly designed for dehydrated, dry & sensitive skin. On the package the label is saying that it absorbs in 10 seconds and I must confirm this statement. Big plus is that smells absolutely amazing.

Mixa body lotion

2. MAX FACTOR MIRACLE SECOND SKIN

This product promises to hydrate, protect and renew your skin. It contains coconut milk and pre/pro biotic complex to help the skin health. It has SPF 20 however definitely under you must ensure to use moisturizer with SPF 50. What I like about this product is that acts like a BB cream- gives nice and light coverage, hydrates the skin during the day and you can chose the color suitable for your skin tone.

Max factor skin miracle

3. MAYBELLINE INSTANT ANTI-AGE ERASER

This phenomenal product is on my list since it was launched. This is a multi-use concealer in different colors and you can basically use for anything- dark circles, blemishes, pimples or to contour your face. The best thing is that is very affordable and the cost is around $10.

Instant anti-age eraser

4. EUCERIN HYALURON FILLER- NIGHT PEELING & SERUM

Eucerin is a dermatological skin care company from Germany and all their products are based for sensitive skin types. This product I have been using less than a month however my skin looks much smoother and brighter. This is maybe the priciest thing on this product list however it is worth it for the results you get.

Eucerin  cosmetics

5. EUCERIN 50+ SUN PROTECTION OIL CONTROL

Every day whether is sunny or raining high SPF is must if you want to save your skin from premature aging and a skin damage. I have a feeling SPF has still not taken the right place in our daily routine however we must ensure to apply it minimum once a day in the morning and would be even more beneficial to re-apply it during the day.

Safari Adventure in Namibia

Safari Adventure

Namibia is a sunny country with high temperatures and friendly people. It is the country which has it all: Namib desert, Atlantic ocean side, North riverside, Safari National parks. Once you visit Namibia, you always wish to come back. It is a popular tourist country therefore safari adventure in Namibia is one of the favorite things to do while on vacation.

Experience With Wild Animals

This is actually the best part. All these animals which you see on Animal Planet & National Geography- you are able to see during the safari. Sometimes you must go two days in a row to actually spot all of them as they are all around the national parks. There is no guarantee provided that you will see them in one day. I guess that is what makes the safari adventure in Namibia so interesting and unpredictable.

Lodges

In Namibia, there is a huge number of standard and luxurious lodges around. So far I have stayed in a total of 3 lodges and today I will represent one of them. They are all stunning and so different in their own way.

Mahangu Safari Lodge

This beautiful lodge is cozy accommodation next to the river Kavango where you can choose between tents or bungalows, garden/ river view. Just across this river is a national park so from our room and balcony we had a chance to see the elephants, hippos, crocodiles, buffaloes and all different impalas family.

Breakfast and dinner are served on the beautiful terrace with a river view. Also the lodge offers breakfast and dinner served on the boat while you are cruising through the river.

Below are the pictures from the Lodge accommodation and the National park.

Friday and Saturday we spent in the national parks driving around to see the animals. We were so lucky to see hundreds of elephants together and spot giraffes and zebras .Safari is definitely one of my favorite adventures as it is very unpredictable as animals are moving all the time and there is the times where you can see much but also if you keep searching you will find this amazing views.

I am about to decorate & have found these beautiful inspirations on Pinterest and want to share it with you.

Cold or Warm Christmas?

5 Tips for Massive Instant Change

‘Change starts with a small daily steps’

Massive change is possible. We are meant to grow, evolve and develop during our lifetime. We are not the same as 10 year ago, therefore it is our responsibility to do everything in our power to follow the right path and ensure we are going into the right direction.

Magical 5

Here comes the 5 tips which highly successful people are implementing daily . I must say each of these steps has the point and once you dedicate yourself to follow it and be consistent – success is inevitable .

  1. Do what you do not want to do to get where you want to be – Of course if it was easy to do all of needed things and get it done – everyone would do it . Famous athletes , businessman, and all successful people are getting up early and getting things done. Do they like to do it all the time ? For sure not . However sacrificing current pleasure for a long term benefits always pays off. Think about the things you don’t like to do and push yourself to do it . Personal tip: All the things you don’t like to do-do it first thing in a day as this will help you to boost your productivity and you will have that feeling of being proud of yourself.
  2. Take action every single day towards your goals – Even if is small in the beginning – it will make huge difference in general . Success is what you do daily and consistently . Your habits will create your reality . Even 30 min exercising, reading, gardening etc. will make yo feel productive and boost your confidence with it .
  3. Bounce back from rejection – Everyone get rejected minimum once in a life. The opinion of others doesn’t define you. You need to know who you really are and never take it personally . Hearing NO is meant to make you stronger and even more determined to show who you truly are and succeed no mater what .
  4. You must grow your praise muscle – You cannot wait for others to tell you how amazing you are . You must praise yourself daily and use self affirmation to remind yourself how worthy and special you are . You must be your own biggest supporter and cheerleader. It is fantastic when someone else praises you but once you get to the point where you praise yourself because you know how important and sensational you are- it becomes priceless.
  5. Read more – All successful people have a lot of things in common, but one of the biggest is reading . Once we finish with the schools and colleges that doesn’t mean we are done with learning. A human being learns the entire life. Today you can find many books in libraries and even if you don’t have the time ( you always need to find the time for yourself even min a day ) however next great thing are podcasts. Put your airpods and listen while you are cooking, running, driving … It is that simple. You just need to prioritise what is important and take action .

I really hope this advises finds you well and you find the inspiration to start with your journey of success .

Detox For Health and Weight Loss

Health Talk

How many times have you tried to detox your body in 3 days? How many times have you tried to lose weight with only exercises? How many times have you tried to clear your skin with the products? And nothing worked !! Here comes a big secret or maybe not so: Health comes Inside Out.

‘You are what you eat’

Now let me ask you how many times have you heard the sentence ” You are what You eat ” ? Hmmm well, there is definitely truth in this. We are what we eat as our food is going through our whole system absorbing on many ways and we definitely through our whole life or some time eat junk food which leaves the consequences to our health, body shape, and skin. Good thing is that we can help ourselves with ingesting healthy food, plant-based, organic, and doing correct detoxification of our body . Here are my Favourites :

Celery Juice

  1. Detox with Celery juice: By now I am very positive that you might have heard of this amazing drink however here are the reasons why you should be drinking celery juice every morning on empty stomach :
  • Celery Juice heals and activates the gut by restoring hydrochloride acid
  • Lowers cholesterol

Spirulina

This amazing algae is very rich in nutrients and gives us tons of benefits by drinking it.

  1. Spirulina includes vitamins B1, 2, and 3, iron, magnesium, iron, and potassium. Studies show it really is one of the most nutrient-dense foods there is, qualifying it for full-blown superfood status.
  2. Assists the body in flushing out toxins including heavy metals: Spirulina is such a powerful detoxifier that it’s sometimes used as a natural water filter, keeping out lead, mercury, and other seriously harmful toxins.
  3. Boosts the immune system: Spirulina contains a compound called phycocyanin, an antioxidant that fights off anything that could cause damage to your cells.

The Power of Affirmations: Make Them Work for You

“Every thought we think and every word we speak is creating our future ” – Louise Hay

Positive thinking

We all have heard of the power of positive thinking. Do we believe in it or not it is our right? However there are no doubts that something called ‘Affirmations ‘ does exist and whether we are having ‘bad’ or ‘good’ thoughts- they are shaping our reality.

How many times did you wake up in the morning, snoozed your alarm, were unhappy because you have to get up …and suddenly your day turns to be a disaster… Familiar?

We all go through that stage and from there we can only work towards changing those habits and start looking positively. The happiest people know that happiness is inner work and it starts with our thoughts.

Self-talk

Self-talk is very important and the way we talk to ourselves is shaping our life and beliefs. Sometimes when we start this journey with changing the way we think doesn’t always work because of the way we are saying it. Therefore, when we say it, we have to believe in it.

This actually works very simply, however it is not that easy for everyone. The words you are saying on a daily basis your brain thinks are true, so whether you are saying ”I can’t” or ”I can ” you are right – it becomes your truth.

Replace the saying I CAN’T DO THIS with I CAN DO THIS / I AM DOING THIS / THIS IS EASY FOR ME …

As I mentioned already, the words shape your reality and take a moment to review your day and the words said …How they sound? Are the words empowering? Or they are sabotaging you?

All self-affirmation words must be repeated a few times a day. The more you say it- the more you will believe in it. When I started this journey it wasn’t that easy. However, I did morning meditations with positive affirmations and I would also repeat in the evening as when you listen to it while you are asleep it goes to your subconscious mind.

Chalenge

Now finally let’s start a challenge. For the next 28 days, I want you to take responsibility for your life and start creating the future you want with the words you are saying. Below affirmation I want you to write on paper and put on your night table, write on the mirror, put on the screensaver of your phone/laptop… This is needed as we are visuals as humans and will remind you to repeat them.

Enjoy in this journey of self-growth and self-love. Start today. Start right now.

I AM ENOUGH. I AM WORTHY . I CONTROL MY THOUGHTS IN THE DIRECTION I CHOOSE.

I AM THE CREATOR OF MY WORLD. I LOVE MY BODY PROFOUNDLY .

I BECOME MORE BEAUTIFUL AND MORE SHINY EACH AND EVERY DAY. I LOVE THE PERSON I SEE IN THE MIRROR .

AS I LOVE ME MORE I ALLOW OTHERS TO LOVE ME.

I AM GRATEFUL FOR ALL THE OPPORTUNITIES I AM GETTING ON DAILY BASIS .

MY THINKING IS CLEAR, ORGANISED AND FOCUSED .

I AM A FAST LEARNER. I AM WILLING TO INVEST PATIENCE AND TIME IN MY GROWTH .

OTHERS BEHAVIOURS DO NOT DETERMINE WHO AM I . I AND ONLY I CAN DECIDE HOW TO REACT IN LIFE .

I AM POWERFUL . I AM LOVE. I AM SAFE. I AM CONFIDENT . I AM SUCCESSFUL . I AM LOVING ALL THAT I AM. I AM CREATING THE LIFE OF MY DREAMS.

I AM IN THE FLOW WITH LIFE. I AM EXPANDING EVERY AND EACH DAY . I AM GRATEFUL FOR ALL I AM AND AL I HAVE.

I AM COMPLETE. I CHOSE MYSELF EVERY DAY.

Do you use positive affirmations? What is your experience with it ?

Until next post, remember: You are magnificent .

Questions to Ask Yourself Every Month

It is nearly the end of November 2020 and we have one more month to go in this chaotic year. Each end of the month we should be looking into our results in all areas of our lives and this is one of the ways to see if we are moving forward.

Did I give my best for the things I have done?

This is a perfect introduction to our topic. Whatever you have had scheduled the previous month, can you really say you gave your best? Yes or No? Remember that every little step in your past brought you to the place where you are today. In case you don’t like the place where you are- it means probably you didn’t put in enough effort or you just gave up before the time.

Was I an example for others?

To yourself or to others. Were you an example? Doesn’t matter where, we always need to try and be the best version of ourselves, by being an example at work, an example in private life, to our siblings, children or even on the street…Were you support to others? Kind? Remember that we always must be there for each other as the biggest supports.

Am I moving forward or backward?

How many goals have you achieved in the previous month? Having clear & written goals is very important. Whether you are using your journal or notes on your phone- it is essential to make a list of your monthly goals. Remember, some goals take more than a month to be achieved. However you still can put down the results and see if you are moving forward towards your goals.

5 TIPS FOR MASSIVE INSTANT CHANGE

Questions to ask yourself at the beginning of the month:

HOW CAN I KEEP MYSELF HEALTHY THIS MONTH?

There are endless options for keeping yourself healthy: Fitness, diet, mental health. Keeping yourself healthy and in shape is so important.

WHAT GOALS DO I WANT TO ACCOMPLISH?

Make a list of your goals for the following month. What are the 3 things you are going to focus on? What do you want to accomplish? It always helps if you make your plan of action of how will you achieve something and stick to it.

WHO DO I WANT TO SPEND TIME WITH?

Make time to spend with friends, family, a significant other, or anyone else you’d like to. If you have a very busy schedule, now is a great time to make plans with them in advance. Lost touch with anybody? Time to reconnect!

WHAT’S MY BUDGET THIS MONTH?

Budgeting is actually a very important aspect of a successful. Start by going through your accounts. Take note of large expenditures, your salary, and how much of it tends to go where. Come up with a general plan of how much you can spend on what. Here are some sub-questions to consider:

  • What bills need to be paid?
  • Are there any big expenses I need to prepare for?
  • Do I tend to overspend in certain areas?
  • Are my savings sufficient for unexpected changes?

What are your thoughts on monthly questions ? Which one are you currently using ?

I hope this posts inspires you to start asking yourself questions & start creating your best life

Top 5 Honeymoon Destinations: America’s Favourites

Choosing the right place for the honeymoon gateway is not easy, especially with many dreamy destinations across America. A honeymoon should be a very special and romantic place you will remember forever. However, there are a few hot spots that are favorite among the people different age, and here is my top 5 :

  1. ARUBA

This stunning place is an island and constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in the mid-south of the Caribbean Sea, about 29 kilometres north of the Venezuelan peninsula of Paraguayan and 80 kilometres northwest of Curacao. Aruba is perfect place for honeymoon with beautiful sandy beaches, local restaurants and many options for excursions. This beautiful place is also known for a pink flamingo paradise on the beach.

2. BARBADOS

One more beautiful place situated in the eastern Caribbean islands. The capital city is Bridgetown and it is also a popular cruise ship port & vacation destination. Barbados as one more Caribbean country is famous for stunning beaches and incredible history. Plenty of excursions are available and you can easily fill out your day with activities, or can just relax at the beach and enjoy local food and drinks.

3. NASSAU BAHAMAS

Nassau, the capital city of The Bahamas, is located on 21-mile-long New Providence, 11th largest island. Nassau’s main harbor is protected by Paradise Island. The harbor attracted settlers in the early days, particularly pirates. In fact, Nassau’s population consisted mainly of pirates until 1718, when The Bahamas first Royal Governor, Woodes Rogers expelled them, restored order and built Fort Nassau. The Bahamas for centuries adopted Rogers’ motto, “Expulsis Piratis, Restituta Commercia,” which means, “Pirates Expelled, Commerce Restored.” Now, 212,000 people call New Providence Island home, with a large portion of them residing in Nassau. (bahamas.com )

Nassau is perfect destination for honeymoon as it gives you all : shopping, beautiful beaches, many excursions and fantastic restaurants.


4. CANCUN, MEXICO

It was very hard to choose only one city in Mexico but I have chosen Cancun. This stunning city is recognized throughout the world for its spectacular white sand beaches and its fascinating sea in turquoise blue tones. With unique natural places, Mayan culture, water activities, and adventure. International cuisine, spectacular golf courses, sophisticated spa facilities; exclusive shopping centres, typical handicraft markets as well as shows, bars and nightclubs that give fame to its incomparable nightlife. Whether you decide to go for a weekend gateway or longer- you will not regret it.

Cancun, Mexico

5. KEY WEST- FLORIDA

Located closer to Cuba than to Miami, Key West is Florida’s irreverent southernmost subtropical paradise, a unique confluence of history, climate, natural beauty, cultural diversity, architecture and unabashed romantic appeal. Key west is the place which has it all : whatever your idea is to spent the perfect honeymoon- be assure that you will find it. Palm-lined streets with gingerbread mansions and tin-roofed conch houses were home to Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, Elizabeth Bishop, Robert Frost and Jimmy Buffett, a few of the famous people who discovered solace and inspiration in the island city whose Bahamian and Cuban heritage in large part was inspired by Bahamian wreckers, commercial fishermen and spongers. Sound pretty amazing right ?

Monday Fever: 4 Ways To Deal With it

Do you, like a lot of other people, suffer from ‘Monday fever‘ and you just can’t find the way to deal with ? Are you living your life just to’ live’  and waiting for Friday to be happy? Well, that is the sign you must change something. The present is the most important stage to be and the only way to have real happiness.

On Monday morning you are having thoughts that you hate your life, you feel grumpy, unhappy…But let’s dig deeper. Do you actually love your job? Do you love the life you live? If the answer is as ‘NO’ let’s review 4 ways and options how we can change it.

CHANGE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT MONDAY

Remember, it always sounds impossible until is done. Firstly, start changing thoughts about Monday. It has so many positive aspects. Monday is a new day of the week. It is a fresh start. It is our chance to change something and start something new. Make some goals, targets for the upcoming week, and stick to it.

MONDAY IS A BLESSING

What would you do on Monday if you knew it is your last one? I know this sounds scary but I hope it makes you think about life. We should never take any day for granted. Remember there are people who will not see the next Monday. Why waste it? Make yourself aware of how lucky you are to open your eyes to one more beautiful day and live it to the fullest.

MONDAY RESOLUTION

We are aware of fake ‘Monday resolutions’ right? “On Monday I will start exercising ” or ” on Monday I will start saving up” and we know that this ends before Monday finishes. To avoid this use a journal to plan your week ahead and stick to it. Nobody can do it other than you. Your whole life is in your hands and you can make it delightful. Dedication and discipline are key to success in all life areas.

GRATITUDE AS ATTITUDE

Each time I feel unhappy I would immediately think of the things I am grateful for and change my vibe instantly. You can’t complain about life and expect life to get better. It goes another way around. You must feel happy and grateful now to get the life you want. Make sense?

In a conclusion, Monday is a phenomenal day and the start of something new. Therefore love Monday and soon you will live each day in a week equally.

How do you deal with ‘Monday fever’?

How to Be Happy Daily: 5 Important Habits

Yes, it is possible. When we speak about happiness we could find so many definitions. For some people, happiness means being in peace with themselves, while for other means being successful and fulfilled. We all have a super important task to realize what makes us happy and ensure we do some things daily. Real happiness starts inside us, it is inner work and nothing can make us happy until we learn how to make ourselves happy. Believe it or not, our habits are very important. The things we do daily will reflect on the life we live. Below are 5 habits to implement today and start feeling happy each day.

  1. START YOUR DAY WITH THE SMILE AND POSITIVE ENERGY

The way how we start our day in the morning from the time we open our eyes is so important. Firstly, it sets the tone for the upcoming day and secondly, positive energy is contagious. Everything that happened yesterday we should leave behind and not let that energy flow into our new day. Each day is a new opportunity for a fresh start or to create something new, therefore there is no reason to have a ‘bad’ morning.

2. USE JOURNAL TO PLAN THE DAY AHEAD

We all have so many tasks to do daily, whether work or family-wise. Sometimes it can happen to forget something important, and that is ok, as we are just human beings. However to prevent that happens and ruin our day good thing is we can use a journal/planner and each morning while having our first coffee we can plan the day ahead. Journal is an amazing thing as you can put your thoughts on paper and plan all-day activities.

3. TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY

Healthy body- a healthy spirit. Health is the most important thing in our lives. Remember some days when you were sick and in bed feeling awful. If you have had a ‘genie in a bottle’ what would be your only wish? I am sure you all respond the same. It is crucial to maintain our health and body. What we eat on a daily basis and how we take care of ourselves matters a lot. Luckily there is so many ways to do it. I understand that not every person is sport-oriented, however, even long walks or bike rides can be beneficial. Find some activity that fulfills you and includes it in your daily routine.

4. FIND THE TIME FOR A SELF-CARE

This can be anything. In order to keep your mind ‘clear’, you must find the time for yourself. Movie night with a glass of wine/ tea, hot bath, pampering time, exercise. Go shopping, book a massage, do something that you love. Each day ensure you find at least 30 min for yourself, read a book, do meditation, walk, breathe. Self-care is step number one to lifetime happiness.

5. BE GRATEFUL

Last but not least is gratitude. I left this for the very end because I think this is the most important habit in order to be truly happy. Every day we must ensure to focus on the good things in our lives and count our blessings. Honestly, there is plenty of things to be grateful for. I truly believe that word Thank you can change everything. We can start with simple things and be thankful for our home, the food we eat, friends we have…and step by step this list will become so long that we realize how blessed and lucky we are. Being happy is inner work and starts within us.

What is your secret to happiness ? What habits do you implement ?

Christmas Eve presents

2020: Top 5 Affordable Beauty Products That Make The Difference

Hello my lovely readers! How are you today ? I hope you are having a blissful Sunday and spending the time with your loved ones. You know how much I love and enjoy in cosmetic & beauty products so I have decided to share with you my top 5 beauty products available in all drogerys and I will keep using them in 2021.

1. MIXA- INTENSIVE HYDRATING MILK

This product I have bought accidentally while I was searching for something else and can’t believe how much I love it. It is made with hyalourogel and perfectly designed for dehydrated, dry & sensitive skin. On the package the label is saying that it absorbs in 10 seconds and I must confirm this statement. Big plus is that smells absolutely amazing.

2. MAX FACTOR MIRACLE SECOND SKIN

This product promises to hydrate, protect and renew your skin. It contains coconut milk and pre/pro biotic complex to help the skin health. It has SPF 20 however definitely under you must ensure to use moisturizer with SPF 50. What I like about this product is that acts like a BB cream- gives nice and light coverage, hydrates the skin during the day and you can chose the color suitable for your skin tone.

3. MAYBELLINE INSTANT ANTI-AGE ERASER

This phenomenal product is on my list since it was launched. This is a multi-use concealer in different colors and you can basically use for anything- dark circles, blemishes, pimples or to contour your face. The best thing is that is very affordable and the cost is around $10.

4. EUCERIN HYALURON FILLER- NIGHT PEELING & SERUM

Eucerin is a dermatological skin care company from Germany and all their products are based for sensitive skin types. This product I have been using less than a month however my skin looks much smoother and brighter. This is maybe the priciest thing on this product list however it is worth it for the results you get.

5. EUCERIN 50+ SUN PROTECTION OIL CONTROL

Every day whether is sunny or raining high SPF is must if you want to save your skin from premature aging and a skin damage. I have a feeling SPF has still not taken the right place in our daily routine however we must ensure to apply it minimum once a day in the morning and would be even more beneficial to re-apply it during the day.

So that would be my top 5 for 2020 and those products really made my life ‘easier’. I would be more than happy to hear your feedback on this products if you have been using it or what other products would you recommend.

Thank you for reading until the end and stay safe wherever you are 🙂

Top 3 Secrets : Unlock Your Potential & Achieve Anything You Want

Did you ever wonder how is it that some people can achieve anything they put their mind to ? Here comes 3 secrets of how you can upgrade your life to the next level and achieve whatever you truly want.

  1. BELIEVE THAT IS AVAILABLE TO YOU – Whatever you want to achieve you must set your mindset to the belief that is available to you and that you are worth it. Whatever your mind can imagine and visualize it – you can see and achieve it in your reality. You must learn to bounce back from every rejection and never take it personal. They only thing what matters is how you see yourself and how determined you are to succeed. Remember that no one in the world is our competition and every single person is unique and capable of achieving wealthy life.
  2. DISCIPLINE – There is no successful person in this world without having discipline as one of the main characteristics of the personality. Discipline and dedication even when you are not feeling like doing it will bring you to the top. You must remember that no one is motivated every single morning to get up and get the things done, however difference between people who are living their dreams and the others is in staying committed to themselves and their ‘mission’ even they are having a bad day or feeling demotivated. Discipline is something what you can not achieve overnight but new habits takes 21 days to form and if you don’t give up in this time period- you are on amazing path of achieving your goals.
  3. SELF-CARE – I believe this is not the first time you are hearing it however it must be taken for real and people need to realize that self- care is foundation of everything. The way how you treat yourself is the way how other people will treat you in life. Eating healthy, exercising, reading, having ‘Me’ time is what will help you to boost your self- esteem. Grow your ‘praise’ muscle and ensure every day you are doing self affirmation, feel how amazing you are and keep reminding yourself on it. Put yourself at the first place and the world will start changing. Here are some tips of what you can do as part of your self-care:

-Read motivational books & Visit the seminars -Pamper yourself with massage of facial -Go for a trip or weekend gateway -Exercise regularly & balance with the food -Practise meditation & yoga

There is many more ways to treat yourself and grow as a person. I am looking forward hearing from you what are your ways and tricks !

Thank you for reading one more post & stay amazing &inspired 🙂

How to Change Your Reality With Daily Actions

’Big changes start with small steps “

Yes it is in human nature to be afraid of the change. Deep down we all know why is that. Getting out from our comfort zone it is certainly not easy. Not many people is enjoying in it. Why do I have to quit this job which is paying my bills and keeps me ‘safe’? Why do we have to change the jobs at all? How about partners? And friends?

All of this ends up with the same reason. We are afraid of the change. Of the something new could happen to us in a negative way. We are afraid of getting hurt.

To turn this around we have to truly understand how the cycle works. It is crucial to understand the matter of self-growth and education.

HOW DO WE GROW ?

We grow daily by working, learning and doing the things we like and the things we don’t like and we don’t feel comfortable with.

Challenge yourself to do once a day or at least once a week one thing you are afraid of or you don’t feel comfortable doing it. Once you start doing it your confidence level will start growing and finally you will start feeling good in your skin by knowing you are capable of doing it. Start journaling. Record every progress. Start Today.

WHEN DO WE SEE RESULTS ?

This is where most of the people fail and give up before seeing results. You need to understand that results will not come overnight. Big dedication is needed, optimism and a discipline . Success comes from the things you do daily. What you do daily is more important than what you do occasionally. With that being said results are guaranteed and will come at the right time.

PLAN YOUR DAY AHEAD

This is very effective and it is a ‘must’ in process of achieving any kind of the goals. Plan your week ahead, use planner or journal and decide what will you do each day and what actions will bring you to the place you want to be. Don’t let any of your days to be ‘wasted’ and use your time wisely.

ENJOY IN PROCESS

The last but not least is to ensure you enjoy along the road. Every day is a new beginning and feel privileged to have a chance to change something and do differently. It is never too late to start over and have a new dreams and goals.

My Top 7 Stress Management Tips

Hello my dearest people, it is always amazing to be back here . Today I want to share my top secrets to reduce stress and deal with the stress in general. Being in a management position in the company I work I have definitely faced stress in many ways and sometimes on a daily basis. To keep sane this 7 tricks/ tips helped me so much and I am so grateful for it !

  1. Weekend gateway

I know this is not simple to do each time you feel stressed or unhappy but I promise you if you start doing this once a month you will recover and recharge for the following period. The best part is- this doesn’t have to be expensive or you have to stay in hotels/ exotic places. Instead of that visit your family and friends around the country where you live or book some village rustic house / lodges. You will have fun by seeing the people you love and at the same time you are changing the environment.

2. Party planing for family or friends

My second favourite thing is to make people happy. Someone has a birthday soon, bachelor party or baby shower? Use this event to put positive focus on it and distress your mind from your own ‘problems’ . Once you see their happy and content faces you will feel so special.

3. Cycling

This is one of my favourite physical activity to do. You burn calories, activate all muscles and by doing it your endorphin goes up and at the same time your stress level goes down . Any other activity is recommended such as dancing, running or exercising in general. You just need to chose your favourite one !

4. Pampering

Oh I love to pamper myself ! Every time I have a ‘bad’ day this fixes everything and I would feel instant rejuvenated. So fill up your bathtub put some nourishing mask on your face, play some relaxing spa music and enjoy in moment.

5. Read a book or listen some motivational podcast

Books are so important for mental health and so healing. I enjoy reading motivational books based on self-esteem and law of attraction. In a case I don’t have the time to read but doing some activity I would put my headsets and listen some good podcast.

6. Practise kindness- give what you have

It is very simple, by giving you will make someone happy and will come back to you multiplied. If you have love inside yourself- give love . Give kindness. Help older people. Do small things for someone. Give care for animals. Give your old clothes to the ones who needs. There is so many ways to be kind and certainly it is not easy in 2020 to be all this but just give what you have. Even a smile to a sad stranger passing by . After all you will feel so good and that is all that matters.

7. Movie night in a cozy bed with candles

I am personally loving this so much. Popcorn in combination with some comedy or a Hallmark movie = stress relief guaranteed.

So my dear readers this was my top 7 favourite things to do for distressing my mind. I am sure we all have different ways and I would love to hear yours below 🙂

Thank you for reading and thank you for being amazing !

Top 5 Beauty Hacks: Get That Flawless Look

Hello my lovelies how are you doing today ? Welcome back to my blog and today I have decided to talk about my top 5 favourite beauty rituals and they are definitely ‘must know ‘ and a life changing .

I am a huge believer that beauty is coming inside out and it is essential to take care of what we put in our body, therefore to find the balance of what we eat /drink and how we treat our skin . Let’s get straight away into it and you will see why they are my magical ‘top 5’

  1. Turmeric face mask – I have discover this hack only this year but is is phenomenal and with the reason is my number one. If you didn’t know turmeric is an Indian spice used in a food as well as plenty of medications thanks to anti-inflammatory effect. It is an effective remedy for treating any skin problems such as acne, blackheads, blemishes, pigmentation, oily skin and other skin issues. The way to make it : Take one full tea spoon of turmeric powder and mix it with little bit of water and honey . Apply on your face and leave it for 20 minutes. Afterwards wash it of and do your normal skin routine with the toner and moisturiser . For the best results I normally use it for 3-4 times a week .
  2. Panthenol face cream – Oh this is so magical and the best thing is- It is very affordable . The main ingredient is B5 vitamin which stabilises the skin’s barrier function, reducing the amount of water lost through the skin. This, in turn, improves skin texture and elasticity, making Panthenol ideal for treating dry, scaly or coarse skin. Mature skin perceived smoother and more supple. It is also great to use if you have sunburns or after the laser facial treatment and with that being said – it is must in every home pharmacy .
  3. Scalp massage for massive hair growth – This is so easy but we never find the time to do it right ? There is 2 options what yo can do . First one is to use some hair oil before washing and massage into the scalp for minimum 15 minutes. This actually increases the blood circulation and speeds up the hair growth. Second option is to massage your scalp while you are shampooing your hair . The longer – the better. Try this amazing hack and thank me later .
  4. Sunscreen factor 50…for your hands – Yes you read well ! If you are still doubting let me ask you – what is the area on our body that ages first ? Yes hands is the right answer . This my beauty hack which I have learned from my dermatologist and as sun causes premature ageing, you need to ensure every time you apply sunscreen on your face- to apply on your hands as well. You don’t want your hands to look old in compering with the rest of the body trust me !
  5. White Egg face mask DIY – Last one is this amazing face mask . It targets the pores and if your skin is not the best one but you need to look glowing try this DIY face mask. It gives amazing results brightening the skin and tightening the pores . All you need to do is separate white from yellow egg. Mix it until becomes bubbling and then apply on your T zone . Leave it for 15 minutes and wash it off.

That would be my top 5 comment below and let me know what are your favourites . As always, thank you so much for reading and I am more than happy to connect with you 🙂

Untill tomorrow, stay beautiful !

Get Paid to Do What You Love

Hmmm, how this sounds to you ? Reachable or not ? Realistic or not so ? Lately I have been following Marisa Peer who I found very inspirational and my journal is full of notes and wisdom I will be sharing with you .

Many of us have an amazing idea or a dream job but in reality we don’t know how to monetise it .Did you know that 80% of financial success is mindset ?

To monetise yourself you need 3 things :

1.Mindset that says “I am going to make it. I deserve to make it It is not enough to only have a dream and sit at home and visualise it . Once you have the right mindset and set your goals – you need to take an action and work on them .

2. You must have work ethic

The best plan in the world won’t work if you don’t. Imagine the writer who finishes his book but never have courage to publish. Will it work ? Absolutely not . If we take a writer as example, writing the book is possibly the easiest thing – he would need to put an extra wok to publish and then promote, connect with the people, do the reading etc. So as you can see being successful it is not easy for sure, but if it was easy anyone would do it right? Now, you might have an idea of what would you like it but there is a fear because of that already existing or someone else invented it already . So what ? Some most successful businesses people didn’t invent anything new but guess what , they took already existing thing and improved it and made it better . They were paid double more and had success . The point is everything is possible once you decide to follow your goals, dedicate and work hard for it . Your potential expands as you move towards your goals .

3. Keep using the mindset of success and remind yourself you are worth it

Nothing can’t come to you if you are not feeling like you are worth it. Not love, health, happiness, success or money . Self- love and self- acceptance brings you to the confidence that helps you to achieve your goals. Remember that you will be rejected many times and that is the part of the self-growth . Did you know that J.K. Rowling was rejected 12 times before she published her books where she experienced massive worldwide success with ‘Harry Potter ” . Did she stop herself after a first rejection ? No ! She bounced back from rejection and kept self confidence that she can do it because she knew she was worth it .

To sum up all together we all need determination, self acceptance and work ethic to succeed. All of us were born with the mission to serve and enjoy in it. We were not born to work the job we don’t like and than die. We are more than that . Find your purpose and make your dream life from it .

Thank you so much for reading . If you liked this post comment below and let me know and share if you think it will help someone . And if you are first reading my blog – welcome !! am happy to connect with you 🙂

Untill next post , stay safe Xx

Greece : Top 5 ‘Must Visit’ Vacation Places

In this pandemic where the whole world is facing the same – I hope you are holding up and keep being positive and healthy. We all know tourism is facing the biggest challenges in the history and the travels / vacations might be delayed however one day soon we will go back to normal lives . Certainly one of my favorite countries ever vacation vise is Greece and I am very passionate about it – this is the country I could go back over again . We all have heard of absolutely stunning Mykonos and Santorini however I want to introduce you my favorites which are not featured enough. Here comes top 5 cities you must visit if Greece is on your bucket list.

1. Parga – This city is located in the northwestern Greece and it’s surrounded with Ionian sea. I have spent 10 days in this paradise and had a total blast . Very unique place, calming and stunning. Over 3 beautiful beaches with the bar and the restaurant as well as small shopping street full of tourists. You have it all: beautiful beaches, good food and if you are adventurer there is many places to explore .

2. Sarti- This is absolutely beautiful place if you are looking for a long sandy beaches and pure relaxation. It is family place for parents with children as well as older generations are choosing it mostly. Sarti is known as a village and located in Sithonia . Have a look how beautiful it is .

3. Corfu- It is a large island with historic sites, including city & temple ruins, plus museums, resorts & beaches. It is also a port for many cruise ships and with that being said it is full of tourists. Many things to see and definitely 10 days of vacation and would be combination of beaches and exploring of historical places .

4. Thasos- Located in the Aegean Sea Greek island with beautiful beaches, hiking paths & mountainous quaint villages. Beautiful place for the families, friends and couples.

5. Skiathos- Last but not least is an island in the northwest Aegean Sea, is part of the Sporades archipelago. It’s best known for its beaches and youth-driven nightlife scene. The action centers around Skiathos Town, where bars and restaurants spill onto sidewalks along the old harbor and Papadiamanti street, the main pedestrian thoroughfare. Between town and the airport are many open-air, waterfront clubs.

Overall summary of Greece is 10 out of 10 and as I have already mentioned I will go back again. Thank you so much for reading and looking forward for your feedback .

Until next post. Stay safe xx

5 Tips for Massive Instant Change

Hello everyone 🙂 I hope you are having the best day and very successful week so far.

Here comes the 5 tips which highly successful people are implementing daily . I must say each of these steps has the point and once you dedicate yourself to follow it and be consistent – success is inevitable .

  1. Do what you do not want to do to get where you want to be – Of course if it was easy to do all of needed things and get it done – everyone would do it . Famous athletes , businessman, and all successful people are getting up early and getting things done. Do they like to do it all he time ? For sure not . However sacrificing current pleasure for a long term benefits always pays off. Think about the things you don’t like to do and push yourself to do it . Personal tip: All the things you don’t like to do-do it first thing in a day as this will help you to boost your productivity and you will have that feeling of being proud of yourself.
  2. Take action every single day towards your goals – Even if is small in the beginning – it will make huge difference in general . Success is what you do daily and consistently . Your habits will create your reality . Even 30 min exercising, reading, gardening etc. will make yo feel productive and boost your confidence with it .
  3. Bounce back from rejection – Everyone get rejected minimum one in the life. The opinion of others doesn’t define one . You need to know who you really are and never take it personally . Hearing NO is meant to make you stronger and even more determined to show who you truly are and succeed no mater what .
  4. You must grow your praise muscle – You cannot wait for others to tell you how amazing you are . You must praise yourself daily and use self affirmation to remind yourself how worthy and special you are . You must be your own biggest supporter and cheerleader. It is fantastic when someone else praises you but once you get to the point where you praise yourself because you know how important and sensational you are- it becomes priceless.
  5. Read more – All successful people have a lot of things in common, but one of the biggest is reading . Once we finish with the schools and colleges that doesn’t mean we are done with learning. A human being learns the entire life. Today you can find many books in libraries and even if you don’t have the time ( you always need to find the time for yourself even min a day ) however next great thing are podcasts. Put your airpods and listen while you are cooking, running, driving … It is that simple. You just need to prioritise what is important and take action .

I really hope this advises finds you well and you find the inspiration to start with your journey of success .

Thank you so much for reading X

The Power of Affirmations: Make Them Work for You

Hello lovely people and happy Monday!

“Every thought we think and every word we speak is creating our future ” – Louise Hay

We all have heard of the power of positive thinking . Do we believe in it or not it is our right . However there is no doubts that something called ‘Affirmations ‘ does exists and weather we are having ‘bad’ or ‘good’ thoughts- they are shaping our reality .

How many times did you wake up in the morning, snoozed your alarm, were unhappy because you have to get up …and suddenly your day turns to be disaster… Familiar ?

We all gone through that stage and from there we can only work towards to change those habits and start looking positively . The happiest people knows that happiness is inner work and it starts with our thoughts.

Self-talk is very important and the way we talk to ourselves is shaping our life and beliefs . Sometimes when we start this journey with changing the way we think doesn’t always works because of the way we are saying it. When we say it, we have to believe in it .

This actually works very simple, however it is not that easy for everyone. The words you are saying on daily basis your brain thinks are truth, so whether you are saying ”I can’t” or ”I can ” you are right – it becomes your truth .

Replace the saying I CAN’T DO THIS with I CAN DO THIS / I AM DOING THIS / THIS IS EASY FOR ME …

As I mentioned already, the words shape your reality and take a moment to review your day and the words said …How they sound ? Are the words empowering ? Or they are sabotaging you ?

All self-affirmation words must be repeated few times a day. The more you say it- the more you will believe in it . When I started this journey it wasn’t that easy . However I done morning meditations with positive affirmations and I would also repeated in the evening as when you listen it while you are asleep it goes to your subconscious mind.

Now finally let’s start a challenge . For the next 28 days I want you to take responsibility for your life and start creating the future you want with the words you are saying . Below affirmation I want you to write on paper and put on your night table, write on the mirror , put on your screensaver of your phone/laptop… This is needed as we are visuals as a humans an will remind you to repeat them.

Enjoy in this journey of self-growth and self-love. Start today. Start right now.

I AM ENOUGH. I AM WORTHY . I CONTROL MY THOUGHTS IN THE DIRECTION I CHOOSE.

I AM THE CREATOR OF MY WORLD. I LOVE MY BODY PROFOUNDLY .

I BECOME MORE BEAUTIFUL AND MORE SHINY EACH AND EVERY DAY. I LOVE THE PERSON I SEE IN THE MIRROR .

AS I LOVE ME MORE I ALLOW OTHERS TO LOVE ME.

I AM GRATEFUL FOR ALL THE OPPORTUNITIES I AM GETTING ON DAILY BASIS .

MY THINKING IS CLEAR, ORGANISED AND FOCUSED .

I AM A FAST LEARNER. I AM WILLING TO INVEST PATIENCE AND TIME IN MY GROWTH .

OTHERS BEHAVIOURS DO NOT DETERMINE WHO AM I . I AND ONLY I CAN DECIDE HOW TO REACT IN LIFE .

I AM POWERFUL . I AM LOVE. I AM SAFE. I AM CONFIDENT . I AM SUCCESSFUL . I AM LOVING ALL THAT I AM. I AM CREATING THE LIFE OF MY DREAMS.

I AM IN THE FLOW WITH LIFE. I AM EXPANDING EVERY AND EACH DAY . I AM GRATEFUL FOR ALL I AM AND AL I HAVE.

I AM COMPLETE. I CHOSE MYSELF EVERY DAY.

Thank you so much for reading and I am sure you will succeed so update me below in comments i want to hear your journey.

Until next post, remember: You are magnificent .

Love, Zorana

Self-love : You Must be the 1st on Your List

In the next few posts I will give attention to self-improvement and self-love which I think it i crucial and very important in having mindful life full of happiness and success.

Lately and very often I am seeing people putting their needs on the side because of someone or something else. This is definitely not the path will bring you to your ‘perfect’ life.

SELFISHNESS IS BAD ?

Well, not necessarily . By all means we are talking here about healthy selfishness. Have you ever heard the saying ” Once you love yourself, the rest of the world will fall in love with you ” ? That is exactly what is my point. You can’t be happy by leaving yourself at the last place and prioritise someone else . No one ever . Are you a parent ? That is amazing. And of course you children will be priority. However healthy selfishness reminds you to still find time for yourself. This doesn’t mean you are bad parent. This means you are still following your passion and doing the things you love and make you feel content which will come at point that you become even greater parent and role model to your children.

LEARN HOW TO SAY ‘NO’

You need to understand that you can’t please everyone and that is the fact. If you are not feeling of doing something or going somewhere it is OK to say no ,

FIND THE TIME FOR ‘ME TIME’

This is so important . That moment when you stay just with your minds and do something you love, meditate, exercise, have a bath, read, write a journal, have a cup of tea or coffee, glass of wine, watch movie…..Whatever makes you happy ! This will refill your energy and give you extra strength for the rest of the day .

Help Your Skin to Heal Naturally

Naturally, organic, inside out … we definitely hear a lot of these lately.

Almost 90% of population suffer from skin conditions such as eczema. acne, tired or dull skin, pimples, cysts and breakouts… All this conditions are trying to ‘tell us ‘ that something is happening in our body. Reasons can vary from the hormonal changes, gut problems to skin bacteria and the medication for all this concerns is -believe it or not..in food.

However it really makes the difference when you put in your body superfood which I will mention it in this post . Personally i have noticed huge difference in my skin health since consuming this magical food. Let’s start.

  1. TURMERIC- This magically spice comes all the way from India. We use it in the kitchen with not even knowing his healing benefits on our body and skin. You may want to try a turmeric face mask to help reduce acne and any resulting scars. The anti-inflammatory qualities can target your pores and calm the skinTurmeric is also known to reduce scarring. This combination of uses may help your face clear up from acne breakouts. Mix one tea spoon of turmeric powder with little water/ honey or lemon juice. Apply on the clean face and leave it for 20 min before you rinse it off. For stronger benefits on your skin and overall health you should drink turmeric and mix one tea spoon with your tea, water or make popular Turmeric Latte.
  2. PEPPERMINT TEA- This tea is well known but did you know that peppermint tea actually can help to reduce hormonal imbalance ? 1- 2 cups of tea per day will have major benefits on your skin. The best to drink is before bed time and the tea is also calming and will help with sleep.
  3. LEMON WATER – Lemons are loaded with vitamin C in high concentration, which is the main ingredient in the formation of collagen in the body. Drinking lemon water can induce skin cells to detox and force out impurities and sweat which can clog pores. The best way is to drink one glass in the morning on empty stomach. And remember : for the best benefits drink warm water with lemon.
  4. CELERY JUICE – Celery juice packs multiple nutrients that support skin health , such as fiber, magnesium, zinc, and vitamins A, B, C, and K. Millions of people around the world are drinking celery juice in the morning on empty stomach and witnesses amazing differences and skin cures . To make celery juice follow this steps :
  1. Wash 3–4 celery stalks under running water, removing any leaves to decrease bitterness.
  2. Cut the stalks into small pieces.
  3. Add celery to the blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Place a strainer over a wide glass and pour the mixture into the strainer, pressing down to squeeze out as much liquid as possible. The juice will collect in the glass.

5. SMOOTHIES – This drink is delicious and healing . The best thing is you can mix whatever you like and make your favourite fruit or veggie drink. My favourite smoothie is mix of banana, blueberries and strawberries. It tastes great and it is good to drink between the meals . Ensure not to add any additional sugar as raffinate sugar is bad for the skin health.

That would be my top 5 and I am recommending everyone to start the journey with healing inside out .

Seagull Beach Resort in Hurghada – Hotel Review

Good Morning beautiful people ! How are you holding up today?

As you know the Egypt travel destination within the days are becoming more and more popular so I have decided to share my experience from the hotel Seagull Beach Resort.

This beautiful hotel is located in Hurghada at the beach and it is deluxe with 4 stars . So let’s start from beginning!

On our first day we have arrived to the huge hotel lobby and proceeded to reception to check in. After all was done the employee took our luggages and guided us to our room with a sea view. As I was traveling with mother we had 2 queen beds, sofa, plasma tv, work desk with huge mirror, bathroom with big glass shower and a stunning balcony with a sea view as I have requested.

Upon arrival we had a hotel tour where we could see 2 pools , kids aqua park, and many restaurants outside and inside so you could chose where you would like to have your lunch. Breakfast is served inside 2 buildings as well as dinner. Just in the middle of resort there is a high tower where you could book your dinner for one of the days and experience Egyptian music and dance . This was one of the best experiences and I definitely recommend this .

This hotel has it all and it really is ‘all inclusive’. During the day you can enjoy at the stunning beaches or pools, have a drinks or ice cream . You chose where you will eat single time and if you like Arabic kitchen- it’s there. If you like Italian kitchen, again- it’s there.

Entertainment is there all day and evening along so you can play sports on the beach or have water aerobics. In the evenings there is a show in the open theater where you can rest your mind and have some fun afterwards in the garden with live music.

For additional cost: if you like the Spa – hotel offers it as well. It is your choice to chose the type of massage and let the therapists do their job to make you feel better .

We had spent 10 days in this beautiful hotel and I can say I had a great time and fun. All hotel staff were very professional and they really give effort to make the guests vacation enjoyable and fun.

Hotel has it all , you will also find there excursion guides where you can book excursions to see the Paradise beach, safari in desert or travel to see the pyramids.

Overall experience: Outstanding .

For families with kids, adults and honeymooners!

Value for Money: Yes .

Would I book again soon this hotel: Yes.

Thank you all for reading and you are more than welcome to post any questions in comments.

Until next time.

Love, Zorana XX

Beauty Products: Must Have!

In the ‘ocean’ of cosmetic brands and industry we really have a hard times to chose the right ones. It is not easy especially if you have acne prone skin you have to pay attention to the ingredients inside.

I got the chance to try so many and want to share my absolute top 5.

1. Estée Lauder- double wear foundation : This is my favorite makeup product ever. By having problematic skin I had a trouble finding the right one. This magical foundation covers literally everything. I tried from Maybeline, Rimmel to Hudda, Channel …this one remained number one!

2. Eucerin Oil Control 50 spf – The most important thing in beauty is to protect skin from the sun. I think majority of dermatologist will agree with me how big is this step and shouldn’t be skipped . Sun in general is not good for the skin and make the skin age way faster. Even on a cloudy day facial sun protect is must.

3. Estée Lauder- Sumptuous Extreme mascara: One more product from this brand it’s mascara. This is not sponsored post however it happens that I have plenty of their products. This mascara lifts up my lashes and make them fabulously long. Definitely my favorite so far .

4. Elemis Peptide 4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil : This product is magical I swear. If you don’t have long sleep or you just have tired and dull skin- this does miracles. Makes the skin stunning in the morning and completely recovered. For all skin types.

5. Vaseline for Lips- As I have extremely dry lips most of the times it was very hard for me find the right lip balm which helps . My dermatologist recommended me to try Vaseline and can’t explain how much this helped me and recover my lips . So if you have dry lips definitely consider tryin this. The good thing is you can find in every pharmacy and it is very affordable.

Well that would be my top 5 products I can’t live without. Let me know below if you have tried any of these and you are more than welcome to give me new beauty ideas .

Thanks for reading. Until next time. Stay awesome xx

How to be Successful : 5 Steps You Must Follow

Hello everyone ! I hope you are having a wonderful day today!

Success… Don’t you have a feeling you hear it everywhere lately ? But what does success really means ? What is success for me does it have to be for you as well ? Let’s chat about this .

Why some people are successful and others don’t make it ? As for everything in this world success also requires dedication and some very important ‘rules’ . Let’s break it down.

  1. Set up your goals : Let’s be honest: you can’t achieve a goal without having one. Deep down we all know why we are here, what is our purpose and what we want to do. It is not always easy to figure out but I would say: follow your intuition . It is okay to be happy with one job now and then to want more/ or change your mind as through our life we grow and our goals are becoming different . So get yourself a journal / planner and write down your goals, what makes you happy and what you want to achieve in the next timeline .
  2. Establish your routine : If you speak to any of successful persons they will tell you that they have established routine. So what does this means ? At first make sure you wake up and go to bed every day at the same times . Next thing to watch on is your thoughts in the morning. Weather you wake up happy and grateful or moody and unhappy – this will set up the tone for the rest of the day . 99% of successful people have some kind of exercise in the morning/ yoga/ or meditation . Whatever you chose will benefits you for a long term in future.
  3. Consistency: It is very simple, if you want to be successful – you must be consistent . If you think this is the easiest part – you are wrong . Being consistent requires dedication and discipline . A lot of people fail on this step . I will always remember the words of my first manager back in a days when I was assistant : ” If it was easy everyone would do it ” . Think of it.
  4. Have a vision : You must have vision of your goals and remind yourself daily. This will help you visualise it and give you positive vibration . What also can help you is vision board – put on your ideals, goals ( work vise, dream house, beautiful relationship, fitness , hair…anything) and you will see it as first thing in the morning. You can keep in your room or office .
  5. Work hard for it : Now once we have all steps in place – this one can’t be left out . Whatever you want to achieve you must work for it and being consistent on a daily basis. If you want to be lean and fit- you must workout . If you want to be successful blogger you must create quality content … for each goal applies the same rules. And remember to not give up . It takes 21 day to create a new habit . In this time your body and mind will try to sabotage you but you must get up and do it until you have formed new habit .

Good Luck and let me know how was your path to success !

Until next time XX

From Namibia with Love

Hello lovelies, how are doing today ? I hope you are having fabulous day no matter where you are located in this colourful world.

I am back with my part 2 Namibian vacation. As i have already mentioned in my previous blog I have spent end of December 2019/ January 2020 in this beautiful sunny country . The capital city is stunning Windhoek.

I certainly love to travel the world however Namibia was never on my bucket list before I have met my boyfriend . Now, after I have visited many places across the country I can say that Namibia is the country i would go back again and again.

One of my favourite cities is Swakopmund. This city is located on the coast with Atlantic ocean and Namibian desert . It is very seasonal and during the Christmas holidays when is summer in Namibia this city is full of tourists . It offers stunning views from the desert, drive through it and riding camels, beaches and amazing beach-restaurants, shopping and many accommodations where you can stay .  img_8305img_8375

 

 

My second favorite thing in Namibia is that they have so many safari lodges where you can have weekend gateway of proper vacation.

Second lodge we went is Namushasha River Lodge .

It is located on the north very close to the border with Botswana.

I was very excited for this vacation as this lodge offers everything. Breakfast and dinner plus lunch from menu to order . It offers river sundown cruises where you can see hippos in the water. Stunning pool is there where guests can come and relax as well as huge terrace where we watched popular Namibian sunsets. Not far away from the lodge is National Park where we drove with our car and seen so many wild animals.

My picture diary from Namushasha is below and you are more than welcome to post additional questions.

If you are doubting visiting Namibia or not – my best advice to you is to go ahead and have memorable adventures in this country.

From Namibia with Love, Zorana XX

Safari in Africa

Hello beautiful people how are you doing today ? Are you ready for safari adventure?

I was so lucky to spend December 2019/ January 2020 in beautiful country of Namibia. Many places I have visited in Namibia but today I am showing you my pictures diary from Erindi Game Reserve.

It was my first time to fly to Namibia and visiting my boyfriend and his family. First thing we had done after I landed is we drove to this beautiful resort.

From the first second I stepped out from the car I felt so peaceful as all you could hear was silence and birds. Just stunning. After we checked in at the reception they showed us our amazing apartment where we will stay in for the next few days . It was beautiful, very Africa-style and very luxurious. After we left our luggages we proceeded to have lunch on a beautiful terrace where you see elephants, crocodiles and giraffes while you eating . Never experienced this before and I was in love already with Namibia .

The next morning we had scheduled safari drive which was my first safari experience. I was so ready and even the morning was very chilly I couldn’t hide my excitement. The drive was successful we managed to see giraffes, impalas, rhinos, leopard and after few hours of drive we finally got to the place where lions were laying there hidden . I can’t say I was very comfortable with sitting in the open car surrounded with lions but it was big time experience and I faced my fears.

Overall this experience and stay in Erindi was amazing and even though I was always ‘beach’ person when it comes to vacation- I would always go on Safari again….and again!

Thank you for reading and please share your experience in comments below if you have safari experience!

Enjoy in pictures diary from Erindi. Until next time xx

Top 5 ‘vacation destinations’ in Europe

Summer is coming and we are already thinking about the places we can visit and  where to spent our vacation. Here is my TOP LIST, places where I’ve been and definitely will visit again and  from my “summer bucket list” .

GREECE – This country is one of my favorite to go. Every time I’ve been here it was absolutely blast. National food, music, surrounded with Aegean and Ionian sea and every place you chose it will be amazing, everywhere is different, however my suggestion for Greece would be Mykonos and Santorini. santorini-view

CROATIA – This country is close to my home but somehow I’ve been there only once. I  have visited Dubrovnik and completely fell in love with this city.  Beautiful Adriatic sea , Old city of Dubrovnik, it is also a port so cruise ships are visiting this city very often. There is a lot of things to do and visit , just made for a completely wonderful vacation. 00-lede-dubrovnik-croatia-travel-guide

My next choice is CADIZ – city in southern Spain. It is located in Andalucía. City is a combination of modern and traditional, surrounded with a large beaches, restaurants everywhere and downtown located in the “old town”. cadiz

ISOLA D’ELBA – This magical place deserves to be in my ‘top 5’ definitely. In a case you never heard for this city, it is  an island located in the Tuscany-  Italy.  It is the 3rd largest island after Sicily and Sardinia. . It is located in the Tyrrhenian Sea about 50km east of the French island of Corsica. I fell in love with Elba because of amazing demography, beautiful views and lovely beaches everywhere around. Toscane-1

THE GULF OF KOTOR- MONTENEGRO – Definitely should be on your Bucket list, after you see picture bellow you will realize why. Blue Adriatic sea surrounded with the beautiful mountains  around giving us this stunning  view. It is becoming popular destinations every year,  I am sure it will become soon one of the most visited world destinations. Bay-of-Kotor-Montenegro-770x430kotor-montenegro
