I have previously mentioned more than a few times how much anxiety interfeers with my day to day like. As someone that has been living with this issue since childhood I can undestand in depth how severe and cripling it might be to a person.  Even though I have tried almost every tip and trick in the book I felt the rush of overwelming anxiety even in the most basic situatuons. Today I will share with you the top 5 things that I do daily in order to have a stressfree morning.


1. I wake up 30 minutes earlier.

Most of the times having almost no time in the morning to prepare yourself for the day is actually the most triggering thing when it comes to anxiety. I set up my alarm 30 minutes earlier in order to have enough time to keep laying in bed, slowly get up or have some extra time to eat breakfast and have a cup of coffee. Waking up at the last minute and all the stress that comes with it is definitely more than capable of ruining your day by causing even more episodes.

2. I listen to my favorite, relaxing music.

As soon as I am getting out of bed I put my headphones on and start listening to my favorite music. I continiou to do so while I am doing my morning routine, having breakfast etc. Listening to all the comosion outside really bothers me in the morning. I need to be calm and focused on getting everything done in my own pace.



3. I Exercise at least 20 minutes per day.

I am not a fan of the typical daily exercises, yoga etc. I much rather prefer walking or running especially outdoors. No matter if you want to hit the gym or dance around the house to your favorite music 20 minutes of daily activity will definitely help you keep your stress levels to a minimum


4. I set alarms for every task i have to finish.

I am known for not managing my time correctly so multiply alarms per day is the only way I can function without loosing my mind. I calculate the time I need for every task and set the alarms accordingly, otherwise I might spend a big part of my day working only on one specific thing.

We all live busy lives, in fact, even when we’re travelling we don’t always get the downtime we need. It’s becoming harder and harder to switch off from work, due to the remote working lifestyle many of us have accidentally adopted - where we are almost always contactable, by email. In addition, many of us feel like we need to employ someone just to keep up with the conversation on social media; making us feel like we are ‘reacting’ and always on the go.

Indeed, in a somewhat overstimulated world, it can be easy to feel quite frazzled at the end of the day, or even upon waking up and throughout the day. Therefore, it’s important you take some time out that’s just for yourself.

Now, there’s a huge difference between taking time out for yourself and doing nothing; often we can watch a bit of Netflix, or jump on Pinterest, and we are not “working” but we aren’t truly relaxing either… at times, it can feel like we are just distracting ourselves from the burdens of life we know we must face. Almost like a pit stop.

Making time for yourself, and having true down time is something quite different. It’s all about self-care and carving out chunks of time that are specifically just for you… not quick moments here and there… but scheduled time that is purely designed for you to relax and unwind.

For some people, this may involve going to a fancy spa or an organised fitness class such as yoga or something more intense like boxercise to release stress - whilst for some people it’s drifting off into the world of gaming and discovering cool characters in this new Final Fantasy mobile game. The point is, whatever it is for you - that’s okay. We all have different ways of unwinding… the most important thing is to ensure you carve out time that allows you to just chill out without stress or worrying about the things you have to do.

Time is the most vital and limited resource we have… yet we are so quick to give it away to the demands of life, work and family. In this sense, time is often an overlooked gift that we don’t treat with the value it truly has. It’s important you are living your life for you - not for someone else, as your time is yours, and each minute, or even second, you expend, you can never get back.

This is something that we need to start to feel much more, on an emotional level, as when you think about where you honestly spend your time each day - is it being spent as wisely as it could be; or is it being given away to other people and projects as if you have a limitless supply?

The truth is, you only have so many hours in the day, and these hours are yours. You only have so many days left - and these days are yours. Yes, you should give your time to work, family, friends and the necessities of life… just don’t forget to make sure you have some time for yourself too.
Travel in French Reviera - Cannes
W ince i was a little girl I remember myself having the longest " Travel List " written in one of my journals. I have always dreamed of visiting Cannes, Saint Tropez , Monacco and even if I had the opportunity a few times in the past the circumstances dind't allowed a trip like this to happen. This year I was determined to finally do it. We packed our switcases on July 30, iger to arrive at the port and get on the long cruise to Italy and from there on France.  I should have started posting my travel experiences from the begining (aka Italy) but I couldn't wait to share this particular trip to Cannes since it was one of our most favorite highlights of the whole 11 days trip.

We took a long walk at the beach where all the beach bars stood , bought a few souvenirs , took more than 100 photos and decided to visit a local restaurant for launch 2 hours later. We had the most delicious pizza at La Brasserie at returned to the beach just in time for the summer festival.

W hen I think of summer ,comfort is the first thing that comes to my mind. The high temperature leaves no room for tight clothing and as much as I would like to wear my favorite fitted dress or lace turtleneck top I siply can't bring myself to do it. My summer shopping list is mostly consisted of light fabrics and easy to wear pieces like this super comfy, red tube top that turned out to be a true favorite of mine for this summer ( also got it in floral ). If I could , I would easily purchase every single color ever existed but for now let's stick with this basic top with the cutest bow straps.

Since I am so obsessed with this type of clothing I looked everywhere for deals in order to get a few more of them while sticking on a budget. Bellow you can find the most affordable tube tops . This light blue bow tube top is by far my top choice for a warm, sunny day of if you are looking for the perfect cover up for your strapless bikini at the beach. Now that I think about it I am pretty surre I had a very similar one back in highschool, when I was really struggling to find my personal style.

While I was perfectly planning my summer holidays , eager to get away from the city and all the constant noise that comes along with, the weather had different plans. The stormy, moody days seems like they will never end . If you someone looks closely he might spot a few rays of sunshine now and then but most of the time it feels like the middle of Autumn.  I keep orginising my suitcase hoping for warmer days now that July is almost here.

The cold weather took such a big toll on my mental health, it's unbelievable. Over the last few weeks I felt extremely unmotivated in pretty much every single aspect of my daily life. I keep pushing myself to be a better , more orginized person but sometimes everything feels like a burden. I want to go out, but I want to stay in. I want to work but I also want to stay in bed doing nothing. I want to make art but nothing seems to turn out the way It was meant to. These thoughts have been taking over my mind for many years and beacause of that I keep finding new ways to battle these emotions and still be able to function daily.


1
I have a little folder on my phone's notpad with all the tasks than need to be done every single day. It can be as simple as "go for grocery shopping" or important, urgent projects like edit, deliver a project etc. I set a goal of 7 tasks per day and at the end of each day I check and mark the things I managed to do . Each time I try to add one more thing . The feeling of seing my daily accomplishments motivates me for the next one.

2
I keep a list of all the things I accomplished within a month because most of the times I tend to jump of from goal to goal without taking the time to appreciate how far I have come.



3
I always take a few minutes out of my day to listen to some of my favorite podcasts. The Pursuit With Purpose by Melyssa Griffin helped me tremendusly not only to overcome many of my daily life struggles but also shown me new ways to deal with stress , anxiety and work overflow.


what to wear in greece in summer

Hello lovelies! It's been a while since the last time I published a guide but here we are, ready to touch on yet another frequently asked question on my instagram dms. What to wear in Greece during summer is something that many of you seem to wonder for a few weeks now. Maybe you are planning on traveling in Santorini, Athens, Mykonos or simply are curious. Today I am going to answer your questions the best way I can.

I have spend 24 years in Greece and the one thing I can defintely vouch for is the warm (somedays too hot) weather. The temperature will almost never fall under 28 degrees nor will rise above 35 but still, if you are not used to the heat you have to mentally prepare yourself.

1. Go for loose, comfortable trousers .

Cotton, linen, silk and jersey in light, neutral colors don't trap body heat and absorb contrary to other fabrics like wool and polyester. 






2. Choose tops and blouses that don't restrict your movements.

The feeling of being restricted by your own clothes is probably the worst during hot, summer days. I personally spend most of my days in Greece wearing off the shoulder tops, basic v-neck t-shirts and loose button up shirts. Any type of lace will most certainly give you the worst tanning lines due to constant sun exposure .

3. If you plan on visiting a Greek Island, avoid wearing heels.

Let's get one thing straight.It is literally imposible to wear heels all day on a Greek Island. You can always pack your favorite heels in order to wear them for a few hours in the nightclub or at the restaurant. but the streets are definitely not made for that kind of footwear. Sandals and sneakers are  by far the comfiest choices.



4. Never go out under the sun without a hat.

During 1pm-5pm the sun can be a danger to your heath especially if you are not used to it. Pick a basic hat design that will look good with pretty much all your outfits and wear it religiously.

5. Nightout.

Evenings can be a little windy in Greek Islands even during summer. Don't forget to pick up a jacket, blazer or at least a scarf to wear around your shoulders. I wouldn't recommend short, loose dresses or tops especially if you are planning on taking a walk.




6. What's in your beach bag?

The one thing you should never forget to bring with you is your sunscreen. Sunbathing can be extremely damaging to your skin without the proper SPF. (I would recomend a 50+SPF protection). Always wear a pair of high quality sunglasses even if you are sitting under a beach umbrella. Have a bottle of water in your bag at all times in order to avoid dehydration.



A circle depicts that your love is forever, infinite, unending same as a circle which is never ends. And what can be a better material than shiny gold for this endless circle? The subsequent decision is what type of moissanite gold engagement rings you would like, or can pay for, to gift to your woman. Gold comes in various different forms, and selecting the one which fits with your budget and taste can take a little bit of time. Selecting gold rings for girls will take a bit of research; however, once you find the one you're comfortable with that in terms of beauty and quality, the woman will love it too.


Gold Engagement Rings For WomenThere are different kinds of karats linked with gold, and all of them have their own merits. The low karats of gold still are affordable, and beautiful. Higher karats cost more, and maybe they are not be in your budget, but may be achievable with some saving or any layaway plan. This karat system is quiet simple to understand, it only means that purity by mass of gold in ring out of the 24 parts. For instance, 24 karat gold is 24 parts of 24 parts measured; 18 karat of gold means 18 parts of gold to 6 part of other material. So, 10 karat of gold means10 parts of gold to 14 parts of other materials and very beautiful when made in gold rings for women, and generally more affordable than the18 and 24 karats gold. If you truly want high karat gold ring for your love, many brick and mortar and online jewelry companies will offer layaway or some other plans so that you can extend your payments over some months. At the end, it will come down to whatever you can pay for and what you desire to buy for your love!

In spite of its name, "gold" bringing to your mind that characteristic glittery yellow "gold" color. Gold actually can come in lots of different colors, a few of which can be shocking to you! Perhaps gold rings for woman will be conventional gold, but it can be white gold, green, grey, red, blue, purple, and even black colored gold rings! Perhaps, if the woman you're buying ring for loves roses really, you can find a rose color gold which may remind you as well as her of her beloved flower! When selecting gold, you can choose a favorite color which may mean something to you or her or both, and can be described in your rose gold morganite engagement ring's color selection.

You can find lots of options at any jewelry store you browse, whether at physical store or online store, and the main key is to search something significant for both of you. When purchasing gold aquamarine ring for girlsFree Web Content, the purpose should be to make her happy!

How to find the perfect swimsuit for your body type
"I must be a mermaid, Rango. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living."

     This quote has been on my mind for a few weeks now , so much so that I put it on one of my most recent instagram captions. Over the last few days my body has been getting an enormous amount of vitamine D (or vitamine "sea") and surely I have no complains. Most of the days we had the beach all to ourselves since hardly any tourists are here on May even though the weather is so warm most days. I also had a ( as it turned out ) great idea to use my Stronger Label sports bra as swimwear . I still can't believe how comfy this is.

     I have already shared most of my favorite swimsuit choices on my instagram stories but today I wanted to also upload a quick guide to the most flattering bikinis for every body type rather than another shopping list. 


Hourglass shape body
You are blesed with the perfect proportions and a variety of deferent styles will look great on you and compliment your curves. 

Triangle (pear) shape body
Try adding more volume at the top to create a balance . Chooce a statement bra with ruffles, tassels or prints and a plain bikini bottom (preferably monochrome).





Inverted triangle shape body
Draw the attention and the bottom part of your body. Since you have a larger bust aria avoid straples bikini tops. Try to chooce a monochrome bra and pair it up with a statement bikini bottom.




Rectangle shape body
High waisted bikini bottoms will help you give definition to your waist. It would be better not to mix and match with your body shape.



Since I moved to my current house (almost 4 years ago) decoration has been one of my biggest motivations. Truthfully the more time you spend in a place, the more attached you feel and personally since I am working from home I spend more than enough hours in my living room. If you follow me on instagram you probably know what a decor junkie I really am. Redecorating not only makes me happy but also gives me the motivation I need to spend more time  working in this pleasure environment. There are so many guides on how to properly decorate your house according to your needs. Everything from living room decor for small spaces to clever ideas to make your home look more specious and so much more but the one thing that all of these guides have in common is how
 much , even the simplest change, can have a positive impact on your daily life.

CANDLES

 During this season I am always leaning towards fresh living room decoration since let's face it, we are almost at the heart of summer. Plus during June I find myself looking for decorative canals much more than during any other season. Milk and honey candles are at top on my "favorite candles" list like the Glasshouse Oahu Candle for $27 or the Candle Island $28. 



PILLOWS

Again, if you look at my instagram you will see that both my living room and bedroom is mostly wrapped in neutral colors. My gray sofa is probably my most favorite corner of the house and the easiest part is that I can place any neutral colored pillows , faux fur or add a little texture with a textured pillow case without making my living room space look too busy. Favorite designs at the moment are definitely the Pillow Perfect for $50 and this square throw pillow for $42




COFFEE TABLE

Believe it or not I had the hardest time choosing my coffee table decor. I draw most of my inspiration from pinterest 's easy coffee table decor ideas and finally I am  able to make the most out of it since this particular space has to be both chic and practical. The first thing I added was four gilded coasters (almost the same as Rab Lab 's agate coasters ) from a local, handmade designer to give a boho decor touch and then continued by adding a rose gold vase for only $43.






There is nothing more satisfying than a quick getaway once in a while, especially when the temperature feels just right throughout the day. The sun is definitely here to stay and I couldn't be more happy about it. To be completely honest with you guys it feels more like summer than spring lately. My off shoulder tops and denim shorts are already hanged in my closet and even though evenings are still a little chilly.
