And That's Who I am pt. 2

Hey babes! ♥

Today's post is the second part to the That's Who I am series I'm doing now for 10 weekends. (The first part can be seen here!) So, if you wanna know a tiny bit more about the person sitting this side of the screen, keep reading. If you prefer less talk and more photos, head to the previous post. ;)

Let's get it started!


Who else admits they're a night owl? I sure am. It's very bad for my studies, and for many other things in life, but I can't really help it. I do try to force my body going to sleep earlier, but that very rarely  helps. Hopefully, I'll get the better of it someday. (or, I have to move to US, and my rhythm would be just fine ;D)


I think this one basically explains itself. But to add to it, I find fire such a soothing element, it's warm, it's beautiful - and then again, when handled the wrong way, extremely dangerous. But fireplaces are amazing, I wish to have a house of my own, with a fireplace, as soon as possible. 


I love to paint - yes, other than my nails, as well - but nowadays I don't seem to have the time or the energy to it. I'm sure that when I get older, I'll get the hang of it again. As a young(er) girl, people used to say I'm super talented at drawing and painting. I'm not too sure about that, but it gave me confidence to learn to love painting. So, it's all good.


...like, who doesn't? It's fun how much you will learn just by watching people on the street. Or how much you can be inspired. It's mesmerizing how many different individuals are there, how many styles, how many skintones, how different languages and accents... Next time you're in a city, take a look. Just really focus on everyone who walks by. You'll be amazed.


...again, aren't we all? And by this, I don't mean I'd spent hours just looking myself in the mirror and thinking how awesome I look, or anything, but that I am vain enough to really care for how I look like when walking down the streets. I love putting on makeup, doing my hair, painting my nails... You know, the girly stuff. It never gets the best of me, as mere looks are never enough - even Heidi Klum is very, very intelligent, so not just looks there ;) But, I can be honest and say that there's a little vanity in me.


I would never bend over backwards to please anyone but myself. I'm strongly against the idea we should all look the same, feel the same, think the same. It makes no sense. Life is a one-time shot, make the most of it. Be the best and most amazing version of yourself. Be you. Don't let others tell you otherwise. 


This goes hand in hand with the previous one. I don't aim to please. I'm sorry if someone feels that is rude, I'm sorry if someone feels it's inappropriate. But I have opinions other than fashion-related ones, and I am more than willing to share, if someone asks. I have been too outspoken many, many times, but that has never truly been against me. Sure, you need to know when to keep your mouth shut for everyone's sake, but, there's no reason to be a doormat. As I'm privileged enough to live in a country where women can think, feel and say what they want, I gladly use that right when I get the chance. 


Do I even have to explain? :D You know the feeling when you've had a full 8 hours at school and then at home you realize you have a bag full of homework? I hate that, too.


One life, live it. Don't hold back, don't regret. Love like it's your last day, enjoy every minute. Learn from the past, be curious of the future, treasure the moment. I wanna live my life the best way I can, to the fullest, without regrets, giving the most that I can - being the best me that I possibly can. For this, I have many amazing things lined up for this year - can't wait to share with you all!


It has taken years, but I'm finally starting to be confident with who I am and how I look. Something I wouldn't be able to without my friends and family, who are amazing - and I hope I've given as much support back! My 16-year-old self would be amazed how confident she would become over the years. Then, I would've never in a million years thought that I'd start a blog where I share my outfits, with my face showing, and with my own name. I was totally too scared then. But, I've changed. Now I want to get creative with my looks, show who I am through my clothes, and really enjoy fashion, rather than thinking what people think about how I dress. (Though, I still love hearing your thoughts, they often inspire me.) I could write a whole post about this alone, but let's save that for a "rainy day", shall we?

So, here's what I have for you today, this and that about what kind of person I am. 

Now, the stage is yours: do you relate to any of these things? Or, have you done a post like this? If you answer yes to either, let me know in the comments! ♥ I love getting to know you all more!

Now, I'm going to enjoy the rest of my day, getting ready for tomorrow's little roadtrip. ;)

Blog ya later,

xoxo
