Practicing SELF - CARE Part 2 I TIPS

Good morning! It's 9 am and I decided to write here, because when I saw this perfect weather outside I felt motivated enough to open my blog and start writing. In my last post I promised that this one will be about mental self care. This type of self care might be one of the hardest. Because controlling your emotions is easier than controlling your mind and your psychological state.

Online you can find billions of tips, examples and advice on how to help yourself with this kind of situation. So mine won't be any special, just a few tips which you could try to use if you want.



  • Read a book. Reading a book has always been a thing that will relax ones mind and might even help to fall asleep. It can also change your opinion about others, because in books there are millions of characters with different mindset, so that might help to expand your outlook.
  • Learn a new skill. Trying new things might be a good opportunity to spend your free time usefully. Because, lets admit it, nowadays most of us complain that we have nothing to do..
  • Drawing. Well, about this, there is nothing much to tell. Only one thing that everybody knows. Drawing is therapeutic so don't be afraid if you can't draw like Van Gogh, just put all your mind into it and you will feel a lot better than before.
  • Do a DIY project. This one is interesting. Because, every time you will do it, DIY will distract your minds from all your problems and you will be concentrated only on the thing you are doing.
  •  Color. Coloring is almost like drawing and doing a DIY. Great opportunity to relax and concentrate on it. There are various types of coloring therapy so you should try a few.
  • Turn your phone off. Okay, as much as I don't like to say that, but we need to put our phones away. I mean not for all day, but at least for an hour or 30 minutes, it doesn't matter. But, from time to time we all need to run away from all the social media and just let our minds relax from all that pressure social media gives us. I am doing this and it really gives me good vibes and trust me I'm not disappointed. 
And once again I hope it will be useful for you as it is for me. Enjoy the autumn and see you in the next post!

Realizing all the changes I GTKM

Welcome back!
The reason I decided to write now is simple and weird at the same time. Today I was walking home from work (which I quit today & not sad about that) and it all looked like in a movie. I'm not joking it really looked like that! The music was playing (I had earphones), everything seemed relaxing and I lifted my head to look in the sky. It was cloudy and few seconds after it started to rain. Usually I would've walked fast to home, but then I smiled like an idiot and enjoyed the moment (one of the reasons was that I hadn't any makeup on). Anyway, while I was happy about walking in rain I caught myself thinking about how everything changed in my life. Not just my haircut and color (that I'm always changing, because I can't find the color I feel, if you understand), but everything really changed.
First of all. I don't know if my mentioned that in earlier posts, but when I was younger I had a friend and I listened to that friends opinion every damn tim…

Halloween vibes & new resolutions I ChitChat

Hello to all of you! Once again I'm laying in my bed, drinking muffin-flavoured tea and scrabbling here. Today's topic won't be anything special, just a simple post that I decided to write on a Wednesday evening.
So to begin with I changed my hair color.. (once again...) and I'm happy with it! I mean, I'm truly enjoying this color. It is kind of a pastel pink and rose gold mix. At first when I dyed it I was like ''Jesus what have I done...''. But now I'm thinking that I will leave this color for as long as possible. Also Halloween is almost here and now that I'm with pink hair it is easier to do makeup for that occasion. Still don't know exactly what or who I'll be, but I'm planning to do a video of my Halloween makeup tutorial. I think it will be great. Hope so.
Also I want to talk more about ''new resolutions'' subject. I know that every time of the year, every month I'm talking about how I want to change, sta…

Results of planning my day... I ChitChat

Okay, so first of all, hello and sorry for not being as active as I promised to be..
Right now, there are too many things that are happening in my life and it's way too hard to focus on everything and with that to be able to find time to write down here..

So to start with, I have some news to tell.. I'm moving out, like for real, because earlier I was staying at my friends' house, just for a little bit to get used to the feeling of not living with my parents anymore. But the interesting thing about being there with her was that we got tired of each other, because being friends, helping each other at bad days means really a lot, but living together it isn't like those #goals that many people are talking about. Yes at first it was great and fun, because you get your freedom and nobody tells you when you need to get back home(and many other things that parents do). But later it got boring, we just got tired of seeing each others faces everyday, like I don't know how to …
