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.

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!

Missguided have just recently launched their very first activewear range featuring fashion meets function pieces to empower & encourage women. Today I am bringing you Part 1 of my collaboration with Missguided & Skinny Bitch Collective "the secret class of supermodels" training regime aimed at empowering women & the most talked about wellness and lifestyle project for women right now.

This collaboration is all about fitness & fashion and in Part 1 I am bringing you a short video tutorial of an exercise you may like to put into your own workout routine. Clock Lunges are great to target legs, glutes & core which is one thing I really want to tone up. I am not a huge gym person as such; I love to workout outdoors, attend the occasional yoga class & I really enjoy doing my own workouts & video tutorials at home.

PART 1 | CLOCK LUNGES

 

The SBC clock lunges are designed to take your legs and brain in different directions to fire the glutes and facilitate more changes in strength. It's great for building lean muscle. Pretend you're in a clock face and lunge to 12, 6, 3 and 9 o'clock. Do this 4 times on each side. Lunge forwards, backwards and to the sides (note that the final position should look like a curtsey)

Beginner : 3 reps of 12, 6, 3, 9 on each leg.
Intermediate: 5 reps of 12, 6, 3, 9 on each leg
Advanced: add barbell or free weight and aim for 6 reps of 12, 6, 3, 9

"DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY & DON'T LET OTHERS CONTROL YOUR HAPPINESS".

Has it ever taken you a little longer to achieve something than you would have liked? or it took you longer than what society expects of you? This could be for anything a task, a job or something personal. I've got my hand up sky high for this! I bring up this topic because as of yesterday I now have my license (My Red P's).. and I am so damn happy about it & proud of myself for reaching my goal! 

I've had people & friends a long way have their view or opinion about me not having my license for years.. "WHAT! you don't have your license, how do you even live"  or "It's so easy to drive, you should have your license" or  "I can't believe you still don't have your license". On a more positive note I've also had some really encouraging & positive views on it as well that I wish I focused on more in the beginning..

Of course everyone is going to have their own opinion or views about different things and that is totally okay but in beginning I let the negative remarks bother me about my license & make me feel bad about myself, rather then pushing them away & focusing on the positives & working toward my goal. It came to a point where I decided that the negative comments weren't doing me any good & yes it may have taken me longer than what society expects of me to obtain my license.. and now all I have to say is, so what, it's my journey & I will travel at what ever speed I like (of course sticking to the speed limit when driving.. hehe) 

At the end of the day all that mattered was how that I viewed it myself & the goals I set to get me to where I wanted to be and I feel so proud of myself for being where I am today & really thankful for those few who supported me & helped me get there too! Applying this attitude to any situation by only focusing on the positives (this includes positive & constructive criticism too), rather than focusing on the negatives will be a lot better for you & getting where you want to be. 

I thought I would end on a fashion note & keep it short & sweet ..everyone needs a Little White Dress (LWD) ..that's the opposite to the LBD but I think in summer every girl needs a LWD it's fresh & cool! especially this one by Finders Keepers with on trend cut outs!

ACTIVEWEAR WEEKENDS

jeskaalee lorna jane

I have been looking forward to sharing with you all a few tips I shared over on the Move Nourish Believe blog in a feature post speaking about some ways on 'how to wear your activewear on the weekend'..you can check out the post here

Being a fashion blogger I am generally always dressed in 'dressy' clothes I guess you would call them..but sometimes on my days off or on the weekend I like to be comfy.. don't we all though..being comfy is pretty damn great! Okay so I still like to be fashionably comfortable because I pretty much live & breathe fashion. 

I really enjoy getting outdoors on the weekends either heading to the markets or exploring with my partner Jays by heading on mountain climbs or bike rides or taking my pup Baxter on a puppy date to the creek with my girlfriend Callen and her pup & then heading out for a healthy lunch.

I hope you enjoy the tips about how to wear your active wear over on the MNB blog & have a beautiful weekend x

INTERVIEW: DEBBIE SPELLMAN

jeskaalee

I mentioned in one of my posts a little while back that I had an interview on it's way to introduce to you an amazing woman whom I look up to.. I am so excited to introduce to you the ever inspiring Debbie Spellman! Debbie empowers women to value who they are & live life with purpose through healing emotional wounds and assisting in removing doubt within to live the life you dream. She believes every woman has a purpose and is designed to fulfil a specific purpose and she can help you find your way to living your life to it's best. I was honoured to interview Debbie and get to know her a little more myself and I am excited for you all to be inspired by her in todays interview post..


HI DEBBIE!

TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF, WHO ARE YOU & WHAT DO YOU DO?

I live in Sydney’s east with my hubby and fur baby Jed. I am founder of www.debbiespellman.com, inspiring and empowering women globally to own their worth and value and create a life on purpose. I do this via Retreats, Speaking, Events, Online Programs, 1:1 Mentoring and my online TV show, Detox Your Mind TV that reaches women in over 65 countries.

I am a health & wellness advocate and care deeply about bringing awareness to clean living and a stress-free lifestyle. I travel as often as possible to experience an endless Summer, devour fruit consistently, and follow the pull of an enriching and meaningful life…always.
 
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BEGIN THE JOURNEY OF EMPOWRING OTHER WOMEN TO LIVE A LIFE WITH PURPOSE?

Like many I went through my own struggles. I wanted to be a life coach from the age of 20 yet it wasn’t until I launched my business 8 years later as a Mind Detox Practitioner where I did the inner reflection to identify my unique story. Having struggled with a lack of self-worth my entire life and a deep desire to find my true purpose, my journey led me on a discovery to conquer both of these elements. I now mentor women along the same path I walked to enable them to value themselves, mind, body and soul and to create the unique life they were born to live.
 
WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY IN THE LIFE OF YOU LOOK LIKE?

  • I wake up at 6.30am and do my hour of power. This morning practice connects me with my faith, gives me strength, clarity and wisdom for the day ahead. My fur baby then gets priority when Mr B arrives home and we go on our morning family walk. 
  • I then start with lemon and water, drink a green smoothie and make a massive fruit bowl. I generally only eat fruit up until midday (Fit For Life Principle), which gives me loads of energy. My day could be anything from coaching clients, working on an upcoming program or retreat, recording Detox Your Mind TV or doing guest interviews. Other times I decide to take the afternoon off – in Summer I hit the beach with Mr B a little too often during ‘work hours’ 
  • Regularly I’ll pop on over to About Life for a fresh coconut or juice. I work in 90 min blocks for the highest level of productivity and this includes a 10-15 min break between. 
  • Evenings I like nothing more than relaxing with Mr B and Jed, our fur baby. I don’t watch TV so instead use this time to settle in with a good book (I read a book a week), a podcast or an online program.

HOW DO YOU LIKE TO STAY HEALTHY & ACTIVE?

A run on the beach or around the park would have to be my favourite way to get active. Nothing beats nature for soothing the soul. I also love Pilates and walks with my fur baby allow me to catch up on the latest podcast episodes.

YOUR FAVORITE FASHION TREND COMING INTO SPRING?

Dresses! Nothing makes me happier than the first warm day of Summer where I can throw on a dress. To me this is summer at it’s finest. I love bold bright colours such as watermelon and turquoise.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR DOWN TIME?

It varies depending on how I feel. Sometimes I will take myself out in nature with a good book and my journal – all my ideas come from solitude time and deep reflection. Other times I watch TED Talks, learn online programs or listen to endless podcasts from my mentors. My kindle would probably be my favourite; one device that holds hundreds of books! Priceless. As you can see I love learning…

WHO IS YOUR BIGGEST INSPIRATION?
Anyone who has dedicated themselves to making a bigger impact in our world. Who has heard the call to make a difference and taken action. I admire those who decide to live a life worth living.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY YOUR LIFE MANTRA IS?
“It is what it is”
Far too many times we worry unnecessarily, care about things that just don’t matter or stress over the details. When things pop up that seem out of my control I use this mantra to get perspective. I do all I can to change it and if I can’t change it…I let it go. Simple really.

WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THE FUTURE?

Wow, what isn’t ;) I have always had big and bold dreams for the future and have never given up pursuing these. I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I was 21 and despite a slight detour until 28 I have worked towards this dream ever since which is to inspire women globally and ultimately spend my time serving and giving back to the poor and disadvantaged.

I desire to serve one million women online spreading the message of self-worth and purpose; so my focus will be around social media, programs as well as speaking. It makes my heart sing to be able to reach a woman online no matter where she is in the world, to listen to her story and help her through her challenges…that’s the power of the internet. 

I also love the magic that happens when women come together so I will continue launching my retreats globally. I am also sure a book is on the horizon…will leave that one to destiny :)
