Be Yourself

Have you ever looked at someone else's life and thought "I wish I was like them". I know I have. When you compare yourself to other people, you make yourself seem smaller, less interesting and not as important. Focus on your own qualities and the values you bring to the table. It's awesome to look up to others for inspiration but don't forget who you are and how incredible you are. There is noone else like you. Next time you negatively compare yourself to others think how special your life is and the amazing things you can also accomplish.

It's OK to Quit

In the past year, so many more people have ben quitting their jobs and for good reason. Most everyone has been underpaid and overworked with no work/life balance. You are lucky if you have a job that treats your right and pays you what you are worth. Those types of jobs are very few and far between. I was one of those people who was struglging with my career and that is because I didn't do what I actually wanted to do from the moment I graduated college. I have a fashion design degree and I always wanted to have my own business ever since I was young. Since I moved out right after college, I wanted to get a part time job and work on content creation (YouTube was massive back then) which I eventually wanted to turn into a full time job. Well that never happened, I was never consistent enough to actualy build a community. I didn't realize how demanding was working retail. I also started to get promoted and bills started to pile up so I knew I had to find a full time job. Work

Don't Give Up! Plus "Daily A" Update!

Daily A hasn't beein dailying very much lately but I am back! I have been on TikTok, Youtube and overall busy with the two businesses that I am part of, alongside my sister. When I thoguht about doing the Daily A I wanted a quick little post every day. A thought, a quote or something easy to read and write. Since I am a big overthinker, I kept making it into a bigger thing than it actually is. I just want it to be a quick read and fun to write, not with too much pressure. Today I just wanted to share some quotes that even I needed to hear in this moment. They are all about not quitting, even if you are struggling to keep on going. It's hard to work on something really hard and feel like you are not seeing results. That could be in your career, your life, your fitness journey. You will see results soon, you just have to keep going. So this is your reminder as well as mine to never give up on your dreams even if you are knocked down a thousand times. You don't have

Diet? How About No

Are you starting the new year on a diet? Because that was the plan for me. "This is the year I get back into shape" is what I told myself. "I will start on January 1st." Then I realized January 1st was a Sunday so the "getting back into shape" diet got postponed until Monday. If it's not a Monday I'm not starting something new, am I right? Are you the type of person who has to start something at the beginning of the week? Oh, it's a Thursday? I guess I will have to wait 'till Monday! I've always been a procrastinator, so that definitely does not help the matter. I always work best under pressure, when I know that something is due in less than 24 hrs, that is when my best work happens. I know I am not alone in this haha. But back to the "diet". This is defintiely the year I do want to get back into shape and into a healthier lifestyle. The thing is, I do not want to diet. I want to change my eating habits but still be able

Goodbye Christmas, For Now

When do you take down your Christmas Decorations? Do you wait until the new year or do you do it right after Christmas? I usually like to ring in the new year with my decorations still up. Still feels like a holiday this way:) Then within the next few days, after January 1st, I start slowly taking them down. Most of the time, the first weekend after NYE is when they ALL fianlly come down. Needless to say, they are still up as of right now because today was a busy day of getting everything back in order for Adelore Creations (my subscription box business). We have boxes going out in the next week and a half and there is a lot of work to be done for that still. Taking down the Christmas decorations is such a sad task. The house feels so much more empty afterwards! At least for me that's how it is. I know for some people, they cannot wait 'till the decorations come down! I must admit that I do love a more clutter free space after everyhting has been put up. Even though the C

2023, A new Beginning

We made it to the New Year! It’s a fresh new beginning… then why does it feel exactly the same? If you didn’t have any party plans last night then you probably spent it in your home doing normal things, as I did. I had the TV on, watched a couple of shows, had a couple of drinks with my boyfriend and made some food. Then in the middle of Wednesday, episode 3, the clocked turned to midnight and the New Year was upon us. We paused the show, wished each other a happy new year, watched some fireworks that were being launched outside our home and then went back to watching the show! It felt exactly the same but at the same time it felt like a reset button was pressed. Today I woke up to new hope and looking forward to the future. Since New Year’s Day is a Sunday, I didn’t do much of anything. Had my regular coffee, breakfast and then had to pick up some medicine from the pharmacy for my boyfriends mom. Then we dropped her off back home to rest and we did a little shopping of our own

The Countdown to 2023: Tidy Space, Tidy Mind

I don't know about you but any time my work space or my home space is cluttered, messy or dirty, I cannot focus on anything else. It is always on my mind. "I need to do laundry, I need to clean the kitchen, I need to tidy my room, I have to declutter the closet". These are some of the thoughts that go through my mind when I have a mess around me. If I am working on a business project, plus having to worry about how messy my house is, I get so overwhelmed. The only thing that will help me is to dedicate one day of the week to deep cleaning the house. Usually I like to clean on the weekends, this way I can start the week off with a tidy space and focus on what is important during the week. Sometimes I have plans during the weekend, or I am ill. When that happens I like to clean on one of the weekdays. I have the priviledge of working from home on my own business so I can clean whenever I want to. I can take a break from my business and tidy up for a couple of hrs. I can th
