5 reasons to travel more

summer-landscape-travels-blonde-blogger-arockchicklife

We often look at travelling and vacations only as a fun time we have once or twice or if we’re lucky - a couple of times a year. But it is actually a lot more than just some time off that you spend doing basically nothing but having fun.

Here are some photos from a vacation in Greece that took me to amazingly beautiful places and made me become more aware, appreciating and open to new experiences. I knew it’s always so with travels but yet I was very surprised to find out how much a trip can really change me and so I realized that many of us often underestimate the power of traveling. So let me take you through my 5 reasons why we all need to travel more and what I think makes travelling so important in our lifes.

  1. The more the better & little by little

    First of all, I think the “once or twice a year is okay” approach to travelling is most of the time wrong. A vacation should not be a one off event you are impatiantly waiting for. It should rather be a small reoccuring event that takes place each time you have a weekend to spare or even a day. This way traveling will give you the chance to more often get this nice feeling of being refreshed and clear minded as well as to develop the view that fun can happen anytime and so we should always be open to new adventures.

  2. Clearer view on life

    Traveling is an opportunity to get a more distant and better view on your lfe and priorities. Having moe spare time, enjoying the sunsets etc. is a good chance for you to forget for a while about all the stress and pressure and finally think as clearly as you are actually able to when no circumstances are troubling you. So that’s the best time for big decisions and developing new ideas since you’re at a 100% capacity you now.

  3. Productivity and ideas

    The freedom that being away from home and most of the people you know gives you is also important. You get a feeling of being a lot more capable and stronger. You’re a lot more likely to believe in your plans and big dreams if you distance yourself from daily duties and habits - not for any other reason but because you have 24 hours to do what you want and you actually realize how much you manage to accomplish within a day.

  4. Happy times

    Travelling is great for bonding and rebonding with your closest people. Being too busy and having too many thing to do often stops us from spending enough quality time with the most important people in our lifes. When travelling you can talk, walk and discover new places together, try some new weird sport or dish and you will surely laugh together and discuss random fun things that probably never even occur to you in daily life. And that’s a really nice experience!

  5. Broaden your horizons

    And last but not least, travelling is a way to broaden your horizons and get to know other cultures and lifestyles. This will enrich you and show you how different other people’s habits and traditions are, how many of these new things you are curious about and how much you can learn through travelling. And this will make you want even more and more trips, more new stories and more new places!

Brand new HM x TV Moschino collection 2019

It’s finally here and it's better than we expected it to be! <3 The new HM collection, created in collaboration Moschino is colorful, bold, wild, sexy, rocknroll  (yes :D I know I always the one finding rocknroll inspo & aesthetics in everything :D).

The new collection was announced as a project this spring during the Coachella music festival and we've been waiting for it impatiently ever since - well at least I surely have been :D After having seen the amazing Hm and Balmain collab I was very curious and didn't really know what to expect since HM are always trying to be better and more original and to surprise their customers even more with each new project.

We finally show the collection in a special runway show taking place in New York on 8th of November and all the items became available for online and offlin epurchase the same day - you can check out the official HM Bulgarian website :) All the clothes are a mixture of urban extravaganza vibe, eclectic and bold sequines and  textures, lots of faux learher and 90s trends. Well basically almost all I love is here <3

To be honest, the HM TV Moschino did more than fulfill my expectations! Not only did almost everything sell out in the forst few hours - both online and offline in stores - but I personally happened to like very much almost all the items which rarely happens and makes me feel really impressed (last time this happened was when I fell in love with the 2017 Dolce and Gabanna collection btw)!

I took some photos in store but there was no chance I manage to show you every piece because things were selling out like crazy and I visited the store after work. But I had beeen following all the online updates and was pretty wrll informed I shall say. :D

Midnight confessions of a secret rockstar ★

Midnight confessions of a secret rockstar, well not so secret anymore  o b v i o u s l y. :D :)

I've been wantin' to do this for a while now. I've been waiting for this moment for so long. I wanted to show you my passion, what's drivin' me, what makes me loose myself and then find myself again. But I never knew what it really was. I still don't know what's driving me but it's still there and it's still driving me. So I'm going where it takes me."

I've been writing songs for over 9 years now. I've been telling stories about life, feelings, inspirations and wonders. And I've been finding more of myself with each song, I've been becoming more open, more me, happier and truer. But I rarely even told that to anyone. I rarely sang my songs to them. But the point was always sharing, it was always expressing yourself and sharing those songs everyone feeling or thinking the same, or very different. So I think it's about time I did it right, not only because I enjoy it and want to do it, but to do it right. So now you know my secret. Nice to meet you, me.

A wise man once said "I don't know where I'm going from here but I promise it won't be boring." - David Bowie.

New hairstyle & hair color

Hello, happy October and happy autumn! As part of my preparation for the new season, the fall trends and all the projects and events coming up for me, I decided to make a style change. So I recently got a new haircolor and hairstyle. Up until now I've been rockin' a long blonde hairstyle with dark ombre roots in my natural brown color. My hair was super long and hippie style, I actually liked it a lot but I felt I wanted to try something new.

I had a pretty clear idea what I wanted my hairstyle to be. I wanted a lighter color and textured hairstyle, shorter bangs and a pinch of 'wild thing' haha becasue I'm a rock chick of course. I did my best to find photos of a color and a hairstyle I liked and then headed for my hairstylist appointment.

And here comes the best part. It's because I've been going to the same hair salon for about two years and the results are just always stunning. My stylist Petia always listens to me when I'm explaining to her what I want for my hair and then she does her magic and Voila! I look exactly as I wanted to. Thank you very much, Petia! :) And this time it was no exception, I was so happy when I got home that I immediately started taking selfies of course haha. If you're following me on Instagram, I bet you saw them in my stories. :D And now I'm ready for autumn and trying out different dos which I have decided to start doing more often in the future so stay tuned for more hair related blog post and photos!

Thank you for reading guys! I'd love to hear about your fave hairstyles, latest haircolor and hairstyle changes and more so tell me in the comments below! :)

Hello guys! So I recently celebrated my 23th birthday and I took some time to reflect on the past years. I happen to be a little bit of a thinker so I thought a lot about how I have changed throughout the years and how far I've come in terms of following my dreams and being happy to just be me.

And here are the 23 things I have learned in my life so far. Hope it will be interesting for you to read these and that they will inspire you or teach you something. Enjoy!

 

#1 Smile. Always smile. It makes everything better.

#2 This quote by Dr. Seuss — 'Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.' is just so true.

#3 Whenever you're sad or confused just look at this. This is happiness: http://imgur.com/gallery/I1TBl29

#4 'It is not happy people who are thankful. It is thankful people who are happy.' !

#5 Kindness is the best gift you can give to anyone. Spread it freely.

#6 Life is too short to not do what you want or not chase your dreams. Any minute you waste is a wasted chance to be happier.

#7 The best moments in your live will probably not be in photos because you'll be too busy having fun.

#8 If you're lucky enough to find a true friend, cherish that person/those people and never let them go, they're your treasure.

#9 The sooner you stop caring about pleasing people, the better.

#10 A good laugh and a hug can heal anything and instantly make you feel better.

#11 You are never too old for cartoons, jumping around when you're happy and openly talking about even the smallest things that excite you and you genuinely care about.

#12 You don't need to be perfect to be happy, look at all the people you love with all your heart and how their imprefections don't matter to you.

#13 It's totally fine if your brain is '99% quotes and lyrics'. You're probably a great and fun person to talk to.

#14 Things are not always what you expect them to be. So this is a list of only 14 things, not 23 although I said so. Life often surprises you and you should always expect the unexpected. Hopefully it'll be a good surprise.

So thank you for reading. :) I hope you found something you liked and will remember. Now I wanna hear your favorite quotes and inspiring statements in the comments below! :)
