In the past 12 months, my perception of success has changed significantly. Until now, it's made me question whether I've given up early or lost motivation for the "larger" goals in life. What I've come to realise is that what I once thought was so large, may not be so significant to me.. at all. It's time to stop pretending; it's time to redefine success.
I'm renowned by those close to me for being confident, but I haven't always been this way. It's been a mindset and an attitude I've developed over time with thanks to these three steps. Because life is better when you stop caring for people's judgements, as of today, I'm sharing my secrets.
It may be 2018, but the importance of saying thank you persists. After all, who is it [but arguably, our mothers and our pets] who truly have any obligation to us?
If you've been following my Instagram, you'll know that I was recently struck by the inter-seasonal flu. I use the term 'struck' quite intentionally: it really was that devastating for me. The good news is, it's set me on a newly-inspired path towards health and wellness for Spring.
To reflect on 6 months in Melbourne seemed too predictable [so a 7-month recap it is]. Okay, so I actually lost track of time -- but it was for good reason. I was busy learning these lessons.
Heading back to Melbourne from #NZFW, it appears life isn't about to slow down anytime soon. Getting back into routine as soon as possible (especially after travel) is pertinent. Here's how I'm doing it.
I talked recently about wanting to spread a different message at NZFW -- one that wasn’t characterised by the worth of my clothing or the reputation of my family name. On Day 4, with the help of Flo & Frankie, I decided just what that message would be. Here at Currently Loving, we're standing up for kindness.
We've all walked away from an event, a person, or a circumstance and wished we'd said certain things. Here's 8 I wish I said at NZFW, as well as a taste for Day Three events; my thoughts on emerging and established designers.
By Day Two, I've already reached the point I always do at Fashion Week. The one where I wonder why I'm here and if it really fits with who I am at all. Soon enough, something always spurs my why. This time, it's Aurai Swimwear and Salty Sea.
What is it to be sexy in 2018? On the first day of NZFW, it's designer, Turet Knuefferman -- and her distinctly clever label, Knuefferman -- who gives us the answer we've all been searching for. Hint: it's also potentially the secret to being the most confident individual at your next girl-guy gathering.
