Leaping into 2018: I am ready!

SarandaAdriana 2018 resolutions tilburg university

Ciao dearies,

It’s the final day of 2017 and 2018 will be here tomorrow! Last year has flown by pretty fast and has had some beautiful moments. I went on an amazing trip to Vienna with one of my best friends, I went on a lovely trip to Lisbon with my mom (where we met up with Achya and had an amazing day in Sintra) and I started college again (you can read more about that in yesterday’s blog post)! I have developed some professional skills and have definitely grown as a person… All in all, I have had a good year!

But, I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for me and I have some ‘new years resolutions’ to make 2018 yet another amazing year!

Here is my little list of “resolutions” or better yet: good intentions 🙂

  • Lead an Instagrammable life, but not doing things specifically for the ‘gram. Meaning that I am going to live life to the fullest, do more fun stuff, document more things by taking photos etc. but not doing things differently because it makes for a better feed or whatever. In other words, I am going to stay closer to myself.
  • Spend more time off-line (mostly meaning: less useless scrolling, less reading of negative news, less comparing to other people)
  • Spend more quality time with family and friends
  • Read more books, one book a month at least
  • Write more, more blogs/diary entries
  • Trust my own gut and go with it
  • Be more positive, worry less
  • Being more mindful
  • Learn new skills
  • Travel more

I hope you all have an amazing New Years Eve and I will see you in 2018! 
Happy new year!! 

Love,
Saranda

Back to college at 27… My experience

SarandaAdriana going back to college Tilburg University

Ciao dearies,

Long time no see 🙂 Over the last ‘half year’ or better yet, semester I have been incredibly busy. As some of you might know I have always wanted to continue studying, and that is exactly what I did the last couple of months, I went back to college!

It was not the easiest decision to make but after some job interviews, I noticed that my mind was more directed towards going back to college and my heart was not fully into the jobs. Which was not because of the jobs themselves, as I definitely found some great opportunities. However, the right one for me was going back to college and going after that master’s degree!

Honestly, this decision might have been the best of my life… 🙂
Today I am telling you a bit more about my experience as a 27-year-old going back to college after 4 years of working.  Continue reading

Personal: What it is like to be a High Sensitive Person

Hi there loves,

Today I want to talk a little bit about what it is like to be a High Sensitive Person (HSP). For months I was in doubt wether I should blog about this or not… At some point high sensitivity seemed to be a hype and it felt wrong to jump onto the so called hype train. I did not really seem genuine to me. I saw multiple blogposts where people where talking about being a high sensitive person and I will not second guess if they are – as I think it’s not a psychological disorder or anything, it’s more a personality type – but it felt wrong to share my blog at the same time.

But now that I feel the ‘hype’ is a little bit over, and I am feeling more comfortable in my own skin, I feel like I can finally write about this and tell you a little bit about my experience.

Let me tell you this before reading on; for me it’s both a blessing and a curse to be a high sensitive person…

Baci,
Saranda

Train of thoughts: Winter is coming

train of thoughts winter is coming

Hi babes,

November flew by really fast. Can you believe that it is December already?! I just started working at my new job and already 3 weeks have past. I have done a lot of different things already and it’s amazing that I am learning new things again! When I noticed the time is ticking so fast I started thinking, winter is coming.

All this while I am still editing and having to post outfits that are perfect for fall but not at all suitable for the ice cold winter. Whoops. I really noticed that having an almost fulltime job gives me a lot of structure and security. But on the other hand I have no idea what happens to my free time haha. My first real weekend ended before I even had the chance to do something for myself or the blog and the same goes for my evenings. I figured that a good planning is everything when combining a job, a blog and a social life haha. So that is actually what I am doing right now, figuring out how to combine everything in a way that I’ll still have me-time as well! I feel like it is already going a bit better with managing my time 🙂

Another thing that is unfortunately keeping my busy is my health… It started about a month ago, my cluster period. The period in which I am having a sort of tension headache everyday and immense “shoot me” headache attacks once every two days. In the former years it also was waved away a bit but this year I went to the doctors again. I just started with trying out imigran nosesprays and had two acupuncture meetings so far. I feel like it does help a bit so far but I am a bit sceptical and I don’t want to get to hopeful yet. Should you have any tips or tricks for me to deal with my headaches please let me know…

Winter is coming

So with December here and winter on it’s way I’m very much looking forward to the holidays and to New Years Eve! I also can’t wait for 2017, after years where I am telling myself it’s going to be my year, this year I am absolutely sure it’s going to be my year! I love my career, the blog is going pretty good and I am in such a good please. It sometimes feels to good to be true and I feel so blessed!

What are you up to this month? Feel free to share your train of thoughts in the comments.

Baci,
Saranda

Turning 26!

Hi babes! I am the birthday girl today and I already had such a nice day! Today I’m turning 26 and after a super fun morning with my blogger babe Taria-Ann I am currently doing some blog-work while getting ready for a little casual dinner with my boyfriend tonight!

Meanwhile my head is spinning and thoughts are running around like crazy. I am a year older now but I sometimes have mixed feelings. On one hand I feel like I grew and learned a lot, but on the other hand I am losing my job and still looking for my way and my career path in this life. Life is completely crazy sometimes but at the moment I truly feel like everything is going to work out the way it should. I am going to be fine and I am sure that someday pretty soon I’ll find the perfect next step, whether it be a job or I get this brilliant plan for my own company.

I’m going to find my way… and 26, is going to be my year!

Baci,
Saranda
