As long as there is a place...

I know I might eventually change my mind about this... But at the moment this is how I picture the perfect leaving space... White on white, high ceiling, maybe wood floors, high windows, a lot of light, in the middle of a big city. Maybe here, or maybe even over the sea...  One thing I know for sure...and that is that it really doesn't matter where I end up... As long as I can find a place where there is you and me...

21 jul 2013

Hello girls, today I had to leave work early because my cramps decided to attack me.. Sorry for the period talk... I hate that this thing totally takes over... But anyways I feel much better specially after my date in bed with my boo =)... It also helps that I slept almost the whole afternoon... I recently woke up... and Im still hurting but I cannot be in bed all day..

Lighthouses don't go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining

Skirt: Chicnova (here) , Jacket:H&M, Top: Random store in London 

Oh hey girls! Happy Sunday! I don't know what happen after Wednesday ... Its weird,  because not only did I fail updating my blog, but also I purposely fail to finish off the last 3 days of my insanity program... I've been a negative Nancy all week and I've been sabotaging myself purposely... I couldn't understand why I was being that way, and then it hit me... Its that time of the month soon... Damn it...But even though I didnt do all the things I wanted to do this week, when it comes to bloging and insanity.. I feel glad that I took time to be with myself, I took time to cry and think =)... The time before it comes its terrible but we always survive, I just wish I could prepare my self but every time I make the same mistakes and give up without even knowing... But anyways Im happy to say that I ran a 5 k yesterday in 20 min. Best time so far, my ability to ran has gotten better thanks to insanity. It really doesnt matter that I didnt finish off the last 3 days out of the whole 8 weeks, I did pretty awesome if you ask me... I think that Im going to keep on with my running for a while and then go back to do insanity from the beginning =) After I ran yesterday I felt so amazing and full of energy... And you know what I've learn about all this is that I need to keep my fitness going not only to be toned but also to keep my soul sane. Its like the famous latin quote saids: Mens sana in corpore sano,
a healthy mind in a healthy body... My pms is pretty terrible ( and dont let me start on the cramps), I get super emotional on top of me being naturally emotional... I sabotage myself on purpose and I dont keep my goals... So fitness has become a great way do let all that bad energy out... And also it makes me feel more in controll... So Im going try to keep it up... Not only for my body's sake but also for my soul... 

How do you girls deal with PMS? Do you girls experience pms at all? Any tips on how you deal with the PMS monster? 

 Oh yeah, before I go. Let me just tell you that these pictures were taken right after I got out of the bus in Malmö when I went to visit my friend... hehe

Fashion challenges


Its so weird to me when I get a tiny bit insecure about my chest... Talking about this subject, is something I tend to ignore ... The things is that,  I'm not longer a teenager, but I still feel those teenage feelings (insecurities)... I guess, those feelings are hard to push away specially when you are into fashion and clothing=)... You know, I 've learn to live with them and I have pretty much master how to dress so that they are not up in your face =) ... But I cannot lie. Its a challenge sometimes when your chests are a little bit on the plus size... There are certain tops and styles that you cannot pull off. Its challenging because I just dont want to attract the wrong attention with the choices I make when I dress... But I still want to be fashionable and trendy (covering myself up is no longer an option for me)... I guess that is my biggest pet peeves when it comes to my breast, having the need to cover myself... Sometimes I just want to avoid wearing clothes that would look too sexy or too revealing, but I feel that's not very healthy... If you are like me, my advise to you would be to deliberate yourself, dont avoid it and dont cover up. Its hard but there are ways.There are plenty of ways you can overcome these challenges...  The first thing that comes to mind is fitness and being healthy.. Being in shape is definitely one way to overcome one of the challenges that you are up against when you have larger chest. Wearing the right bra is also essential. Another thing is to try to learn the rules but know when to break them... I think that this top, even though it goes against all the rules, works... I mean, wearing a figure hugging top with horizontal lines is no always the best choice for girls like me . But I think it works? What do you think, does it work ? What are your thoughts on girls with natural larger chest?

Where is the bus loca?

Tshirt: Chicnova (here)(here) skirt:Chicnova (here)

Hello there! I was so happy with these pictures and then I realized that my eyeliner was totally a mess... Damn, this happens to me a lot! You know how I mention before that I take my pictures in the mornings and so my eyes tend to get super sensitive, so I always get so teary and that messes up my make up all the time... Its weird, cuz this eyeliner doesn't usually bleed out during the day its just in the morning when I get teary... But I finally grab the correct waterproof eyeliner at the store the other day so I hope this will not happen again.... ( dont you just hate when you grab the wrong eyeliner or foundation, just because some stores can't keep their stuff in order?)

But girls how are you liking my outfit?  Everything that I'm wearing is from Chicnova.. I need to warn you because I m going to be wearing this shirt and this skirt a lot, so please dont say I didnt warn you =)...
 Aaand what do you think about my new hair color?

Can you guess what color did I went for? I cannot wait to share some pictures so that you can see my new hair color =)

 Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering - because you can't take it in all at once.
