Free your mind

Hi guys,

I'm working a Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 job. I'm thankful for it, don't get me wrong. But sometimes I feel trapped, like I'm stuck in a rat race... Work takes over my mind, it disrupts my sleep and I find myself stressed, tired and nervous all the time.

Some time ago these moments happened quite often... Until I realized I just had to lay down the things that are most important to me and find a way to focus on them instead of being swallowed by work and this toxic daily routine. I just had to set some boundaries! I decided I needed to find ways to free my mind so that I could enjoy the time spent with family and friends in my spare time. I needed to relax and take better care of my quality of life.

Some people around me told me at some point that I had a lot of creative energy and that I had to put it to work... That's when I decided to start this blog. And it has since become my little personal project, my escape, my wonderland!

Another thing I started doing was taking a day off from time to time, not for doing chores or for a planned vacation... Just one of those "dolce far niente" days.

This week, me and Alex took a day off on Monday and it was like therapy. We went to Palatul Stirbey to take a walk, it was sunny and fresh outside, and just wonderful! No one else was there!!! (this was my favorite part- usually, during weekends or holidays every place on earth is packed with people). Then we stopped by IKEA (again, very few people- we almost didn't recognize the place without the hundreds of people buzzing around). The day was great! Oh, and not to mention we only had a four-day working week, which was awesome!

So my advise to you, whether you're working, or studying, is: Take a day off! You're worth it!

Have a beautiful, sunny weekend!

  1. pretty :)

  2. <3 <3 <3 So much beauty!

    First of all, yay for taking a day off, it looks and sounds like you two had a fantastic Monday, nothing like it to refuel the energy levels ^_^

    Secondly, you look amazing, for a girl that wasn't that much into jeans you sure do a terrific job at styling them, this boho-chic combination is flawless!

    And last but not least, I want to shoot in dreamy locations too, preferably with no people around as well ^_^

    Many, many hugs!

    1. This was the best part! The fact that nobody was there! It was so quiet and peaceful! I loved it! Thank you for your sweet words! Hugs!

  3. oooooohhmmyyyyy, these photos are so so so amazing!! plus you are right, why not take a break every now and then? I sometimes decide not to go to University and just relax at home. Why? Because I need that time. And plus, everything that I learn, I learn it by myself at home, not in school. And your outfit I would totally wear anytime! I just love brown and nudes together in a look :) kisses, dear!

    1. Thanks, Rachel! I'm in love with the wrap! It's beyond gorgeous! Hugs!

  5. Cand am citit titlul melodiei, am fredonat in minte: " Free your mind and the rest will follow..." haha :))) Nu pot sa-mi mai iau ochii de la poncho e absolut supern, iar pozele sunt extrem de frumoase, ma bucur ca ati avut parte de putina relaxare si liniste! Te pup :*

    1. Daaaaa, si eu tot la melodia asta m-am gandit, hahaha! Iti multmesc! Te pup!

  6. Ce loc frumos! <3 Prima data m-am uitat la poze si ma pregateam sa te intreb unde ai facut pozele si apoi am citit si am vazut unde ai fost :D
    Ce frumos e poncho-ul, e adorabil! :*
    Imi place foarte mult intreaga ta tinuta!

    1. Era superb acolo. De mult imi doream sa ajung, dar desi e aproape de Bucuresti, mi se pare totusi un pic departe. In sensul ca daca tot plec din Bucuresti prefer sa ajung la munte... Acolo e dragut, dar domeniul e relativ micutz, faci o mica plimbare si gata! Insa capela Sf. Treime e chiar superba! Te pup, Cris!

  7. Oh, ce dragut! Chiar m-am mirat cand am vazut ca ai postat poza in ziua aia pentru ca stiam ca lucrezi!
    Doamne, ce tinuta minunata! O adooor! Bluza e deosebita, blugii sunt wow iar poncho-ul, oh, e superb!!! Geanta si ghetele se potrivesc asa bine si de decor ce sa mai zic?

    Esti o adevarata inspiratie, draga Mamalina! <3

    Te pupicesc si va doresc multe zile asa frumoase si bune pentru suflet! <3

  8. This is a very nice dress. Lovely styling and attractive colors.I love to have this type of dress.
    So for me, fashion was about standing out as an individual - and it helped me get the attention that most people try to get with publicity stunts or by doing other crazy things. But I just let the attention come to me naturally, and I think some of that has to do with my fashion.
