Ever over-planned a holiday to the point where you're exhausted on the flight home? Ever said good bye to routine entirely, and spent weeks moaning, groaning and announcing "where you'd rather be" on your return? Me too. This holiday, I was determined to do things differently.
Things I don't recommend include: moving countries, hustling your way to self establishment and forgetting the definition of a holiday. Things I do recommend? Well, you'll simply have to read this post.
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.
Growing up is harder than imagined. But not necessarily for the reasons they tell you. Let's talk about the most confronting lesson of so-called "adulthood": changing in the eyes of the people who don't wish to see it.
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.
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.
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.
Lately, I've been inclined to re-think my mindset around productivity and the glorified "hustle": it turns out all work and no sleep isn't all it's set out to be.
