It has been a while since I have last posted here but those who have been following me on Instagram were already aware of my new hair. I'm so happy with the results, the year of growing out my hair was definitely worth the wait. Many have been asking where I got my hair done and I did it at the salon At388, they did a fantastic job. I spent the whole day in the salon but left with the exact color I wished for and trust me, going from dark hair to extremely blonde isn't easy. What do you think?

It feels like I'm repeating myself when I say that I can live in body's and tight skirts/dresses all season (if only the weather would allow it). I absolutely love how garments like these accentuate my femininity.

I have been somewhat secretly growing my hair for over a year now (ever since I went back to my own natural hair color) and have never shown my hair out of a bun online before. So here it is, my hair in it's natural habitat. Those who have seen photos from my earlier days of blogging might recognize the hairstyle a bit but I usually straighten my hair at that time. This here, is all me. Natural waves and curls. I always have to get used to loose hair but I always get so many positive reactions and demands that I should wear it like this all the time. The only reason I went back to my natural hair color was to let it grow so that I could get a blonde long bob later. I'm almost to my desired length and seriously can't wait until I'm back to blonde hair. Life is too short to have boring hair.

Is it just me or does time pass you by after your twenties? Maybe it's because we become aware of time as we all work towards our goals and dreams, maybe it's just the universe. It may also have to do with our generation, we all adjusted to the fast phase industry/world we live in that we expect everything to go as quickly as planned. Reality is, that some things take time, patience and discipline. After my graduation at the academy of arts, working as a freelance stylist sure doesn't come easy but I simply try to keep my goals in mind at all times. Nothing great comes easy.

To be honest with yourself, you will have to explore places within that aren't always pleasant to reveal and experience. But each time you experience yourself in new ways, your self worth and love will grow and radiate around you.
I think we women can all relate when I say that shopping off-season (during sale or in outlets) gives us a rush like nothing else. At least it does for me. Those who have known me for a while now know that I’m all about combining high street with high end and that I mostly shop on a budget. I have a few designer items hanging in my wardrobe but I’m as happy with those items as I am with clothing from high street brands.
There are various ways to find designer items (or high street) for a lower price and I recently come across the website of Dress For Less. On their website, which can be seen as an outlet store, they offer clothing, shoes and accessories from various brands for very affordable prices. Needless to say that you can order items from brands such as Fillipa K, Costume National and Moschino in the comforts of your own home. As they have a huge range of items and carry 350 labels, there is always something to find without having to search through a pile of clothing in a store. As I find quality and design very important when it comes to anything, I will admit that I’m not the easiest customer to please. But I easily found items that were up to my standards and the pricing was even better then imagined.

It has been a while, I mostly have been active on Instagram as it's much quicker with a busy schedule. Lately I have been spending much of my time in the studio - most of you know that I work as a fashion stylist - and I couldn't be happier as it's something that enlightens my in such a beautiful way. However, I've missed releasing my thoughts and life lessons here. Even though I'm only 23 now, it seems like life goes quicker and gets better by the day. I can't explain and even comprehend how much I have learned in just the past year, I can honestly say it has been life changing. When I was younger I wasn't aware of my identity in the way I'm now and it seems that everyday I'm coming closer to reaching my higher self. Don't get me wrong, life is constantly involving and so will I but I believe that your identity only expands once you have found yourself.
