BE YOURSELF

"ONE OF THE BEST DAYS IN YOUR LIFE IS WHEN YOU STOP CARING ABOUT WHAT EVERYONE THINKS ABOUT YOU AND YOU START CARING ABOUT BEING YOURSELF".

This post topic has come up quite a few times with friends of late in conversation and it is something that really resonates with me. About two or three years ago now when I initially started my journey blogging is when I started to realise that not caring about what others think about me is the best way to take on my life!

If you know me personally or follow me via my Snapchat stories (@jeskaaleee) you will know I like to be just a tad silly and well probably occasionally weird.. I am so okay with that as I love having fun, being ridiculous and making people laugh..and I generally laugh at myself too.. because why not! 

In the past I used to be quite conscious about what others would think of me because I felt as though I needed to be a certain way in their eyes rather then staying true to myself. 

My advice to anyone who is feeling self conscious or unsure of themselves.. Take a moment and ask yourself if you are worried about someone else's opinion of you and if their opinion of you doesn't fit what they see as great than their opinion shouldn't be taken into consideration. Surround yourself with people who love you for you and learn to love and be yourself without worrying about others opinions.

You are uniquely you, embrace it!

SEASON OF CHANGE

www.jeskaalee.com

Just as the seasons change undoubtedly every year so do our lives; whether these be small unnoticeable changes or large ones that impact our lives in ways we would never imagine. I am a strong believer in everything happens for a reason, although I may not always know the reason for it I believe it! Life happens whether we are ready for it or not ..at times to teach us lessons, to help us grow and to lead us on the path we are destined for. 


"LIKE A RIVER FLOWS SO SURELY TO THE SEA MY DARLING SO IT GOES SOME THINGS ARE MEANT TO BE".


If you read my blog regularly you may have noticed I have not been posting on here for quite a while and I apologise for not being able to keep it up to date as I love sharing with you all.

Recently I found myself in a situation where I had to put myself first and listen to my heart and my head and so in the name of change one of those life changing, stressful, challenging, crazy moments impacted me and my life unexpectedly and I had to take the time for myself to get myself together. I am still not exactly where I want to be personally but I am working on getting my happiness back on track and I aim to try my very best to figure out exactly what it is that I want.

Now I know some of you will want to know details but I won't go into them here as I feel some things are best kept personal and not plastered all over the world wide web. If you have had a life changing moment impact you or even a small change shift your direction I would love to have a chat and get your advice or I'd love to just listen here.

I will be trying my best to get back to regular blogging of outfit posts, tips and all the fun stuff here on the blog as I enjoy sharing these things with you all.

TAKE A BREATH

The serenity was breath taking the afternoon I shot this look with Mum down by our local creek..only a slight cool breeze in the air & the way the afternoon sunshine hit the water was truly beautiful. I really enjoyed taking in my surroundings as we snapped this for the blog, it was really special.

I am sure I am not alone when I say I have been putting too much on my plate of things to do lately and feeling a little stressed as all my jobs, blogging & social life have been quite busy over the past few weeks and I have been wearing myself thin. I am going to be taking a breather just for the next week or so to get my head back in the game and get myself feeling fresh again to bring you beautiful people some fun, insightful & fashionable content.

Not to worry I will still be over on my Instagram @jeskaalee so you can catch all my going's on over there for the time being! Remember it's totally okay to take some time out if you are feeling stressed or like you just need to take a breath or break from something.

Big Love, Chat Soon x

HEALTHY CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

www.jeskaalee.com
www.jeskaalee.com

Most of us crave something whether it be sweet or savoury am I right? For me I crave chocolate, usually dark chocolate (the good stuff) and if I am presented with chocolate I usually never turn it down.. it's just so good! I even got a little (a lot) excited when I discovered that a square of dark chocolate a day can assist with decreasing stress..score! 

In this post I am introducing a product I recently tried out and I am in love.. D.I.Y chocolate dream mousse that is easy as adding water and stirring.. yep that easy (Oh and I added some crushed almonds because they are delish too). Simply Natural Protein Mousse is a super easy snack, treat or dessert for any time of day I say. A huge plus is the mousse is also non GMO, gluten free, hypo allergenic.

The Simply Natural company formulate, manufacture and provide and innovative range of 100% natural solutions to your health and nutritional problems. They are also 100% Aussie owned and manufactured (Big Plus!) and they demand truth in labelling, quality of product whilst bringing out only innovative products.. have I got you interested? Head to their website to check out their products for yourself and do your taste buds a favour!

I cannot wait to try out the Tiramisu Dream & Choc Coconut mousse next. Oh and nope I didn't share with Baxter but he thought it smelt really good and just wanted to steal some and photobomb because he is a cheeky rat!

I recently came across a quote by Daniell Koepke about only doing and being around what makes you happy. I really felt a connection and understanding to the quote with different situations in my life, some past and some present. I haven't been blogging as much as I would like to lately and I apologise as I love creating content for you.  But as I mentioned a few posts ago for personal reasons I've had to slow down a bit as life has been a bit hectic lately, as we all know it can sometimes be!

It is these testing times I find I really take the time to stop and think about where I am and how I really feel about life, I think about where I am at, where I want to be, I think about who's in my life and think about what my purpose is here on this planet we call earth.. deep right? sometimes we've got to be! So to me my purpose in life is ultimatley to be happy and feel content within myself, I am to go on adventures to beautiful places, to learn as much as I can and create memories that last a life time all in my own time. We all view life differently, some of us have similar views and some of us have completley different ones and that's totally okay.

This year I've been trying my best to be genuinely true to myself, my feelings and speak up when I feel something does not feel right or if something is making me unhappy or uncomfortable I try my best to say so and walk away if I have to. This applies to so many aspects from work, to relationships, friendships and even stopping and asking myself "Does doing this benefit my happiness?"

 Focusing on what makes you happy and taking your energy away from what doesn't may be hard at times and other times it may be really simple. At the end of the day all I want to be is true to myself and sometimes we have to make sacrifices even if it's hard, if it hurts or if it means things need to change and we have to let it go.

INTO THE BLUE

Sometimes it is necessary to take the steps to flush out any negativity in your world! I've been doing it for a while now and focusing my energy on the things that are positive within my life.. it is so much better for your health, trust me!

Some may find this silly or insignificant but a little while ago I decided to stop following any people or pages I felt were not supporting my happiness or purpose on social media as it is part of my life using instagram for my job everyday. I felt at first "Oh but what if they see I've un-followed them and they think I hate them?" I thought about it more and It's just not like that and I think we all can get sick of following certain pages at times. So I feel that if they are no longer serving our happiness or providing a purpose to us then why follow them we shouldn't have to worry or feel stressed about hitting the unfollow button.

I decided to unfollow some pages that I'd followed in the past just recently because their pages were no longer brining happiness or positivity to my life. Removing those pages from my day to day life has been really great and I recommend if you follow someone or a page only because you feel like you 'have to', or if follow someone because you are jealous of them and want to stalk their life and compare it to your own or if you follow them and they make you feel bad about yourself..don't do it to yourself, it's not good for your health. Comparing, analysing and having that negative energy around, especially if you are on social media a lot can affect your happiness and you just don't want or need that.

Some people aren't affected by social media & some are and thats totally okay because we all see things differently. It's made quite a positive difference to my life as social media is what my work revolves around & I wanted to be working within healthy, positive surroundings whilst online. So now I follow pages that bring positivity into my day, ones I can learn from, ones that really interest me & ones that add that little bit of extra of happiness into my social media presence!
