The things that get you going

  In need of a little motivation, engagement, feel good vibe?
It's that time of year again ... the time where it is simply a drag. In the height of all work and no play it is incredibly hard to keep yourself motivated and your sassy usual yourself, so what's the fix? and how do we stop ourselves from falling out with our routine and immersing in exhaustion? 

Start up by utilising your time wisely, don't over sleep or waste a second. Whether you are surrounding yourselves by your favourites or maxing out every single inch of your existence by being constantly on the go, there is no denying that surrounding yourselves with your favourites provide you with the normality and break that you need.

For me an outfit makes or breaks a mood. Some people like video games, some like sport but fashion is my area of interest. Forget preconceptions such as 'overdressing', if it makes you feel good, whatever the activity, or 'item' maybe- the rest is irrelevant. 

Embrace the silence. Take a walk, take a drive, take a breath. Five minutes out may be all you need. Taking a long period of time out (this can even be a day) can demotivate you, especially when you are always on the go. Judge what you need and what makes you content. 

Don't forget the get little things even when you have a crazy schedule. A killer blow dry and fresh manicure gives me the kick I need when i'm in the midst of everything. You may not have a great deal of time, but if this is the little bit of love you give yourself throughout the week so do it.

     Remember you are your most important influence and you have the biggest control over your emotions and mindset so hype yourself up. I am currently listening to Kanye's new album as I drive to work then give myself a spare fifteen minutes to browse new Christmas shopping releases. Actions as simple as this get me prepared for the day and remind me that no matter how I am feeling this segment of me time can remain uninterrupted. 

My favourite advice of all time is to pre plan. The times you have something to look forward to, no matter how great or small, give you something to strive for regardless of how your day, week or month is going. Having nothing to strive for will destroy your engagement with anything. Set yourself goals, targets and deadlines- just make them the ones that appeal to you, not the ones that are expected of you. 

As always, remember you are killing it. If you are trying, no one can ever argue otherwise.

Flavour of the month

Autumn is in full swing, the nights are about to get darker
 and things are getting a little bewitched. 
AW19 is here and we are waiting for the high street to play catch up. Expect power shoulders, colour block and the return of the cape (a 2015 trend I just couldn't get away from). From the Bottega bag and slides covering head to toe of any FROWer to the blend of Victoria B shades hot in the eyes of any make up lovers palette, AW19 reminds of what fall really is about. A season of classics in a new dimension.

Christmas releases
Will we be airbrushing with Charlotte Tilbury? Slick with an anticipated uncovered Huda? Or drenched in the dreamiest scent? I always begin my Christmas shopping in September but this year I am underwhelmed. Some of the hottest festive launches are around the corner this October, don't miss out.

Ok, so it's a new year and new Apple season. Everyone has so much to say when it comes to a new Apple release but for me this year a state of the art camera and a midnight green just about cuts it. I am a sucker for new shades and intricate detail. The pro provides just that.

Affairs in order
Will they? Won't they? Three years after a Brexit vote and we are still in a struggle to define the history of this country, October 31st is the next milestone in our development. What will happen? Our guess is as good as anyones.
     Unless you have slept through the past few months Greta Thunberg would have entered your thought process. At 16 this environmental activist has once again highlighted the prominence that climate change has in our world today. Politics may not be your thing, but the globe you live on certainly is. Don't play blind to the monumental change that you could be a part of.

For your viewing
This time every year Gossip Girl returns for me. The seasons are in sync and with great outfits, scandals and S&B in their prime, what more could you ask for?
    In complete contrast the other view playing on my mind is Star Wars. The finale of the latest trilogy enters the big screen this December and tickets are due a release. Lets call this a family tradition

The Greek islands forever appear on our Instagram feeds over the course of the Summer months. An array of gorgeous white buildings and the deepest of blue seas. In our amazement no one expected to find them at the top of our wander list this Autumn. The weather delights, the crowds have fleed and island hopping continuously appeals to the many. Have you considered switching your usual city break for Mykonos and Santorni in the Autumn air?

The next three months see trends arise as the day progress. 
Watch this space my darlings, the flavour of month is about to get that little more juicy.

Twenty six at 26

Five years ago I wrote a post called '21 things I have learnt since turning 21'
Well a lot can happen in five years my darlings. Here are my twenty six at 26.
1. Chill the f out (also one of my resolutions)
2. So you are in your mid 20's? You still have time
3. Your work/life balance will make or break you
4. Your closest circle will shrink 
5. Negative energy? Walk away 
6. Stand your ground
7. Sign off
8. Placing pressure on yourself will never get you any further
9. Those who matter will stay
10. Be unapologetic, your opinion counts 
11. People need you, but you also need them 
12. As Blair Waldorf once said be part of the none judging breakfast club 
13. Never measure yourself against other people
14. Social media is an amazing platform for discussion but you also need to detox 
15. Failure? Don't worry, there is always a next time- and you will kill it.
16. It's ok to be married or have kids, but it is also ok to not be
17. Your gut feeling will not let you down 
18. Take a risk, we don't do boring
19. Your contribution to change in the world is monumental
20. Do the things that make you feel fulfilled 
21. Being grateful is a testament to who you are
22. Drama? Stay away
23. Make time for the things you love 
24. Never underestimate your capability 
25. You have an impact on others, you can influence in the greatest way
26. Consider the things and the actions that make you believe make you happy and strive for them

Here is to the next five. 
All my love,

Tashaa xo
