Once again, I’ve neglected my blog. To be honest, lately I’ve been on a bit of conquest trying to be a little more spiritual and health-focused (aka. get my shit together). In fact, if I think about my blog – I think fashun, what I want to buy right now, models and more fashion etc etc. It is actually tiring and pretty much depressing to think about – especially when I’m currently on a strict shopping ban. I apologise to myself for neglecting the responsibility to my blog. But from now on, I will focus on other things too. Life isn’t about fashion. As much as I am a genuine, avid lover of beautiful clothes, I don’t want to be consumed by what I love… which is what happens to most people.
Right now, I’m about to be working two jobs – which the workaholic in me is so, so thrilled about! I’ve also kinda pledged to some non-existent allegiance on living out a simpler life. Less chemicals, less “TREND, TREND, TREND” and simply less drama. I’ve made a pact with myself to be responsible for my own happiness and not let anything I love consume me to an overwhelming point. Shit, I sound like a self-help book. But I swear I’m still normal (cool).
1. Right now, I’m all about organic beauty products. I’ve been using incredible products that do not have harsh chemicals and my skin has dramatically improved!! I’m a believer.
2. I still love clothes, don’t get me wrong. But I’m trying to stick with classic, albeit expensive, pieces that I know I will treasure and use forever. I’m selling like 80% of my wardrobe because I simply don’t use them enough – and I could really do with the cash. I still have typical shopper-girl wants though. I just try to ignore it for the meantime, until I get my finances sorted.
3. I have a stronger awareness of my sense of self, and have become a lot more relaxed in showcasing my identity to the world. I’m me. Take it or leave it. For some reason, I’ve been avoiding the showy/ flashy social media scene. I am kinda embarrassed in showing off an awesome new purchase. I’ve been putting my attention towards people these days, and when you take yourself out of the social competition, you’re just happier🙂
4. Nature vs. Artifice = NATURE. This is my new little saying that I learnt in Florence, ironically when I was studying fashion. In everything I do and love, nature will come first and foremost because it is the root of all we’re doing and who we are. Artifice is secondary and complementary.
Okay, hippie Janina is out x
