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

Am I a feminist? Sponsored Video

am-i-a-feminist-santa-clara-lidl2 Hi loves,

Lately I’ve been sometimes having my feminist feelings come into play. I have never been much of a feminist, except for the wish and desire that women should be treated equally. However with all that is going – elections and all that shit – this feeling is getting more intense. Being a girl boss and a strong, healthy and independent woman who can take good care for herself is one of the things I feel very strong about. It’s become very important for me but I have also seen that other women my age care for this more and more.

We talk about terms like #girlboss daily and read blogposts about: “How to become a #girlboss?” and more…

This Christmas we get a new ally in our pursuit of becoming a power woman: Lidl’s Santa Clara! Who would have thought? Lidl actually thinks it’s time for the women to be put in the spotlight this Christmas, and therefore Lidl presents Santa Clara! Check out the video after the read more button!

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

A checkered past – Outfit post

gingham-checkered-blouse-outfit-shein-ootd3

A checkered past…

A past where you have done various things, have had ups and downs, successes and failures. I have been all over the place sometimes, mainly with my interests haha. But at one point somewhere, a couple of months ago, things started falling into place. Bit by bit I was finding out what was going to be – what is – my THING. Slowly all of those bits and pieces from the past fell together like pieces to a puzzle.

They were still very diverse on itself. But combined, they were one bigger picture. A picture I did not see before, but now I do! It all is coming together right now and it makes me absolutely happy! To be honest, I think it has been a while since I have been this happy… I’ll tell you more about it very soon 🙂

For now let me just show you my checkered outfit of the day, where I am wearing a checkered gingham blouse by SheIn* or similar, faux leather leggings (similar), a leather backpack (similar) and my all-time favourite Adidas Stan Smith sneakers!

What do you think of my latest look? I am very curious to hear your opinion!

Baci,
Saranda

Train of thoughts: My blog as a diary

blog-as-a-diary-roermond-floral-bodysuit3

Hi everyone,

It’s time for another train of thoughts where I am letting my thoughts take over control of my typing. See it as a form of rambling, but I’ll try to stay on topic!

Check out my previous train of thoughts about Pokémon Go if you are curious 😉

For today I want to talk to you about my view on my blog at the moment. From the beginning I think the main focus of my blog has always been fashion. But as I am growing older, yes I turned 26 last week, I want my blog to grow with me. I am getting more mature and I want my blog to mature as well. So at the moment I am thinking a bit about changing it up a little. To ensure that my blog can grow further.

Because sometimes, as a blogger with a main focus on fashion, I feel like you can only get really big if you have a lot of money to buy clothes. Or for example if you can borrow designer stuff at PR firms / friends / family etc. Let’s just be honest, I lost my job and will be unemployed starting November if I haven’t find my next challenge by then. So I just don’t have a lot of money to spend. And in my opinion, if you want to grow your blog, you really need to invest, at least a little. For example as a fashion blogger you need to be able to show nice on-trend outfits or at least, very diverse outfits. And as a beauty blogger you want to be able to review new products to create new make-up looks with.

My blog as a diary…

Therefore I am thinking that perhaps I need to transform my blog a little bit. At the moment I am just not able to share a new outfit every week and I also want to share more than just my love for fashion. Not only do I think sticking too much to fashion limits my blog a little bit, I also feel like I just have so much more to offer!

I would love to be able to share more personal stories, but it would also be great to share more magazine types of posts, posts where I can show of my writing skills. I always shared some more lifestyle related posts once in a while but I think I should share more of these. From posts about my latest travel adventures, inspiration posts, trend reports, must haves et cetera.

Basically I want my blog to become more ME, more Saranda. I am still working on the exact changes and how I want to do everything. But let me just assure you, it’s not all going to change! As mentioned earlier I just want Serendipity to evolve and to grow with me. What this means, hopefully, is that this blog will not only grow mature with me, but also with you as my readers… So please also let me know what you would like to see more of on the blog and I will keep it in my mind!

Let me hear your train of thoughts on this topic and stay tuned! 🙂

XO
Saranda
