MAJOR 1ST WORLD BLOGGER PROBLEMS

Pants/H&M, Blouse/MaxMara, Sneakers/Asics, Bag/Celine

Hi!

Anyone who’s tried their luck in being a style blogger knows, that it isn’t always exactly as simple as it looks like. There are some, perhaps amusing, downsides and issues which you’ll encounter sooner or later – things you otherwise wouldn’t even think about. Here are some which I’ve come to deal with.

  1. Parked (and moving) cars. A beautiful street which would be a perfect background for an outfit shoot – upwards from the top of one’s head. Because everything beneath is full of oddly colored cars which so do not coordinate with what one’s wearing.
  2. Not having a marble table or a tumblr bathroom to shoot your beauty products in.
  3. Your meal is good but hella ugly.
  4. When you’ve just managed to fit school, sports, friends, nutrition and blogging to your schedule, and realize that some sleep would do some good as well.
  5. Single bloggers; when you don’t have an Instagram husband to record all your best dressed everyday moments. Happy wife happy life!

 

Have a fabulous Friday!

THE MOST EXCITING JANUARY IN A NUTSHELL

Long time no see!

I’ve been having my hands very full (both metaphorically and physically) in the past three weeks, so the blog has unfortunately been left without the attention it deserves. But now I’m back for good! Let’s go through what i’ve been up to.

First of all, I began studying social anthropology, which I’ll be studying this spring. And it has been very exciting! I’m even considering writing a double bachelor’s degree combined with my major international relations.

Second, I’m very keen on starting working, and been dwelled to the job-searching process. My first interview will be held on Wednesday, wish me luck! A hint; it’s within clothing industry.

Third, I’ve been spending quality time with friends and family. I was away from Stockholm during the holidays, so it’s been wonderful to come back to my other friends-consisted family here. Then, my mom was here last weekend. I sneaked into her hotel room and enjoyed fresh sheets and a hotel breakkie. Even as a grown up there’s nothing better than sleeping next to momma at times.

This week will be full of studies and meetings – but I’ll do my best getting some blogging done on the side. Have an energized Monday ya’ll!

25€ PANTS THAT LOOK LIKE A MILLION BUCKS

 

 

Good morning!

The sales season is on! As my sales shopping strategy is, well, strategic, I haven’t given up to the urge to go all nuts. But, a couple of great finds are always in place. These thick suit pants from h&m cost me 25€! I even took them to the sewers to get the legs shorter, and was still left below fifty bucks. Yes!

I also got myself a new fur coat from the Saks Potts sale, and a new pair of Asics sneakers. Walking a minimum 10 000 steps a day definitely requires comfortable shoes. Will be showing these to you as they arrive! The coat is, surprisingly, pink..

In case I won’t have the time write it later, Happy New Year everyone.

HOW TO HANDLE UNIVERSITY STRESS (AND HAVE A LIFE)

Coat & Mohair pullover/H&M, Leather pants/Zara, Beanie/COS, Bag/Celine

Let’s discuss university stress; often joked about, but very familiar to most!

As I’ve probably written, I’ve been quite tired and stressed lately, having issues to fully focus. Due to my tendencies of rarely giving much appreciation to my work, I’ve mostly thought that I’m probably just born lazy and should just to try harder.

BUT! Today we had a chat around the topic of stress with a classmate. As we spoke, she really opened my eyes; this whole fall, we haven’t really had more than one day off at a time. Our courses have begun straight after the last one has ended. Not only that, but our deadlines for essays have been mostly Mondays or Tuesdays, meaning that the weekends have been dedicated to writing. During just the first two months, we’d had over 500 pages of readings + countless articles. Our hand-ins account for 60 written pages in the past four months. To think about it, how have I actually managed to focus in much anything besides that? The blog, social life?

Effectiveness. Time management. Prioritizing. Simply: spending one’s time wisely!

I’ve taken up studying in the mornings: spending the few most efficient hours of the day just to do schoolwork. I get so much done! Towards the end of the day, it might take me an hour to finish a chapter I’ve written in 10 minutes in the morning.

Walking 10 000 steps minimum a day. As the brain is getting over heated, this is what keeps me sane. Just walking, whatever the weather. It’s an energy boost, and makes room for a lot more new thoughts!

Sleep. I wrote about my insomnia HERE. I’ve really come to realize how crucial this is! I need to be in bed by 10pm each day – otherwise it’ll all just fall to pieces. A hard working brain needs to reload! 9-10 hour beauty sleep is how I keep running.

Meeting friends. Making enough time to meet friends physically at least two or three days a week. It’s not healthy sitting inside one’s own head for too long. Friends help one put things into perspective, and remember that life ought to be enjoyed of.

No partying. Having a busy lifestyle, at least in my case, is very much undermined if I begin hanging out in the bars. Having a glass of wine or two is fine — but messing up the sleeping pattern and losing a whole day to hangover is just not worth it. That’ll have to wait for another period in life.

And sometimes when nothing helps, just breathe, take a day off whatever the workload, and get back to it properly rested. School isn’t worth losing mental or physical health for.
