I've heard this quote a millon times before, and I know you have too, but only recently did I truly understand what it meant.
I always thought how can you be more than you already are, cause you are you. But then I realised that being yourself means 

 not caring or worrying what others think about you 

 having the curage to speak your mind 

having the courage to say no 

 chosing to do something because you enjoy it, not because someone said so 

Being yourself is not easy, but I definitely think that as we grow older, time makes us stronger and the things that we go trough, whether good or bad, are going to help us discover ourselves and who we want to be and it will surely make it easier for you to... be you :)

Have an amazing week!

Party at the Beach

Happy happy Sunday!
This weekend has been a veeery hot one, with 30something ºC every single day. Therefore, this weekend was also a very casual one. I did't get to do much, but stay inside, away from the heat and only go out in the evenings, when the cool breeze of the river would make its appearance. There was, though an event on Saturday that saved the day- a party on the "beach" (an artificial beach actually :D ). Even though I didn't get there early enough for the little concert that was on, I did however make it just in time for the bonfire. All of us gathered around the fire, trying to make ourselves as cozy as posible. Folk music, quitars playing, people singing together the songs- it was such a beautiful image.
So here is what I wore:
*btw... took a walk in the park before we actually headed down to the beach and so that's where the photos were taken*

As the party was on the beach, I wore a striped full body swimsuit from Pull&Bear, white shorts from Kiabi Kids (yeah, that's right, I wear children clothes!), and sandals from Benvenuti. I don't remember where the scarf is from because I have it from a long time ago, but the rest of the accessories are thrifted.

Nope, I lied. Actually the earrings are not thrifted, they're from H&M, but you can find this style  pretty much everywhere.

I kept the make up minimal- a bit of mascara, blush and a pinky nude lipstick to seal the deal. :)

That's all for this week. I hope you had a lovely Saturday and Sunday, and I'll talk to you tomorrow!
❁ Byeeeee! ❁

My Favourite Healthy Drinks

Good day, friends!
The much awaited Friday has finally come, and what better way to relax after a whole week of work or sleepless nights, than with a cold, healthy and delicious drink? Today I am going to share with you the recipes for two divine tasting drinks that I absolutely love!

1. Goodie juice

☼ 1 large carrot
☼ 1 large apple
☼ 1 slice of beetroot (if you actually like beetroot, you cana add more)

          I really like carrots and they are so good for your eyes, as they contain plenty of vitamin A. 
And even though I don't like the taste of beetroot, I do try to incude it in my nutrition because it is an amazing source of iron. If you don't like it either, adding just a slice (as seen in the picture) won't change the taste at all, I would say :).

2. Energy smoothie

☼ 1 cup of milk (it can be cow, soy, almond, coconut-your choice)
☼ 1 handful of blueberries
☼ 1 banana
☼ maca powder
☼ kelp powder
☼ you can also add a pinch of cinnamon (I forgot), which tastes great in this combination 

       Maca is a superfood which can do wonders for your body. Rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber it gives you plenty of energy; and it's hormonal balancing properties make it perfect for all women (let's just say.. goodbye PMS!)
       Kelp is a type of algae, another superfood, which contains B vitamins (great for energy), C and E vitamins (antioxidants and good for blood vessel health).

I hope you try these recipes as well and if you do, let me know in the comments what you thought of them, or I'd love it even more to see pictures on Instagram- if you tag the photo with #FridayGoodieTime I'll be able to look them up. :) 
Until next time!
