My Goals for The New Year
I can’t believe that we’re over two weeks into the new year and I still haven’t made a post talking about the ambitions that I have in 2019. Recently I was catching up on some blogposts about 2019 from Wiishu and Erika and I felt really inspired to write something similar. I love the kick I get from reading other people’s goals and talking about this always gives me the spur of motivation that I need in order to get my life together.
When the year is as fresh as it is in January there is so much potential for anything to happen which is exactly why I feel so pumped to make the most of every day. For this post, I’m going to follow the template that Erika made on her post just because I think it’s the most simple so I’ll be dividing my goals up into four separate categories; travel, career, relationships and well-being. Hopefully this post will inspire you guys to focus on yourselves and make the most out of 2019 too!
A Little Reflection on Life
Here I am at Café de Flore, the oldest coffee house in Paris and the epitome of the perfect Parisian café cliché. Once a hangout of the artistic elite such as Ernest Hemingway and Pablo Picasso, the ambience created in this charming café between the classic French decor and the jolly waiters emptying jugs of thick, hot chocolate into porcelain coffee cups while you pensively watch the world go by from the terrace is enough to make you feel like the star of an old Audrey Hepburn film.
Paris is no doubt the type of city that has so many awe-inspiring sights and scenes at every corner you turn, from the tall monuments that stand all along the lengths of the Seine, to the explosion of life happening all throughout the city’s sandstone streets, there are so many reasons to appreciate the world around you. Honestly, in a place as culturally enriching as Paris, it’s hard not to feel anything other than lucky to be alive.
In light of the thoughtful ambience of Cafe de Flore, and the feelings of pure bliss that go hand in hand with sipping a coffee from here, today I thought I would share with you my top seven ways to live a happier life.
A Little Note on Self Love
Hello my lovelies! Happy Friday to you all. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, love is in the air here in Paris. And in light of that I wanted to share an outfit with you that was not only cute, sweet and elegant, but also the perfect ensemble for a special date with yourself, a loved one, or even an evening out with friends.
As with every year on Valentine’s Day, there comes the over-saturation of soppy couples on social media which often makes it so easy to feel down and out about not having an SO to celebrate with. It’s for this reason that I decided to devote today’s post entirely to self-love. Whether you may be in a relationship or not, self-love is such an important skill that has such a powerful influence over the way we live our lives.
However it’s something so many of us can so easily overlook and neglect to do. But what better time is there to appreciate who we are than on Valentine’s Day, right?
Here are my top tips for self-love as well as a little outfit for you. Let’s start!
My 2017 In Review
It’s hard to believe that the last timeI updated my blog was on New Year’s Eve. Thinking about how fast my time in Ireland flew by over the Christmas break is a bit daunting but honestly I’m so happy to be back in Paris and to be writing our first post here on our blog from the top floor of my brand new Parisian apartment.
I’m not going to lie when I say that 2017 really was one of the best years of my life so far, if not the best one yet. Throughout the year I had so many amazing opportunities to find myself, who I really was and what really made me happy. Not only that, but I also started to make better decisions for myself and overcome some really ballsy goals I set for myself that I’m pretty proud of. Today I wanted to sum up my 2017 for you guys and maybe it’ll give you some inspiration for the new year. Let’s start!
Hey everyone! I hope you are all doing well and that the week is off to a good start for you so far. Today I thought I’d update you a little on what’s been going on in my life and with our blog.
