Listen To Your Heart

Today I wanted to write about the importance of having a hobby. Personally, I can get so wrapped up into my day-to-day routines resulting in me getting pretty bored. You know: dealing with the not so interesting aspects of life such as work, school, finances, etc. that no one really WANTS to deal with but have to be done. So to spice things up a bit and to keep myself motivated, I try to do other things. I love to take pictures, film and edit YouTube videos, blog, read and sometimes play piano, if time permits. These activities disconnect me from routine life and also help reduce my stress level.
That being said, sometimes I ask myself why I blog. Other than the fact that it gives me a voice that I can use to communicate with you all, I often feel like a grain of sand by the ocean. With SO many other blogs out there, what do I have to offer of value? Lately, I have been feeling like I can no longer relate to fashion blogs like I once did. They are so “polished”, for lack of a better word, and while I can understand that with success comes change, I quite enjoy relaxed ‘outfits-of-the-days’ where I can afford what is being showcased and I am able to easily find the items/ similar pieces. I mean, do these bloggers really wear heels on a daily basis and sport a FULL face of make-up? LOL, oh you know I will choose comfort any day and I truly believe that you can look wonderful without having to spend 3 hours a day to get ready. I hope that through my more simplistic (and original) approach of blogging you can relate to me being a regular 20-something year old. Anyways, I digress.
Back to the topic at hand! Having a hobby keeps you sane. Some of us are fortunate enough to be able to make a living off of it, while others would risk becoming homeless as long as they are able to do what they love. I say: find balance in your life and do what makes you happy. It is yours after all! So GET CREATIVE: It’s never too late to add a new interest to your routine.

Take a Snapshot

Hello world,

Or shall I say hello to the very few who actually read this blog! Yep, it’s me again, popping in. I was catching up on a few of my favourite blogs the other day, and got inspired to take snapshots of my surroundings.  Many times, we take for granted the little things in our lives that keeps us sane, that makes us happy. Hence, I decided to walked around my apartment, camera in hand, and captured the  small items that make up the true picture of my life. I ended up having a serene Friday evening afterwards, sipping on a cup of Chamomile Tea.

Have a great week end!

xx

Hey guys!

Today was actually SO nice here. It was sunny with a high of 6 degrees! It might not seem warm for a lot of you but considering the fact that it was -40 degrees less then a month ago, I would say I was burning! 🙂 Anyways, I had a pretty nice day, just enjoying the little things that life has to offer. How is your week-end going?
