Last week I came across these words by @mattzhaig and they just incapsulate so many of my thoughts in one go. So I wanted to share them with you today in case you need to hear them (I’d love to hear some of your favourite words/quotes in the comments): . The sky isn’t more beautiful if you are famous. . Music doesn’t contain more emotion if you are rich. . Stories aren’t more empowering if you have perfect skin. . You don’t lack as much as you think. The best of life is there for everyone. .

When we don’t stop to reflect on ourselves and our lives we end up staying in jobs that don’t fulfill us, relationships that drain us and circumstances that leave us stressed, unhappy, frustrated and tired. . We keep running on the treadmill of life thinking we don’t have time to waste. We keep moving in order to keep up. And so too often we crash and burn. . The only real way to keep up with the pace of life is to STOP. To hop off the treadmill. To reflect on what’s working and what’s not. To identify what to keep and what needs to change. Then to move forward with purpose, motivation and excitement. . If I’d seen my current reflection 5 years ago I would not believe it. A resident of a country I’d never stepped foot in before, living a low maintenance life with less possessions and more experiences, working for myself and feeling more fulfilled than I ever had before. And I cringe to think I could have missed out on the path I am now on if I had never stopped to question the ‘norm’, the daily grind I’d worked so hard to be in on. . So once and while don’t forget to stop and take a look in the mirror. Is the person staring back at you the person you want to be? . For this weeks weekend hashtag project - #WHPUpToMe - I choose #WHPSelfReflection .

How do I like to start my weekend? Well with a pink newspaper and gelato of cour
How do I like to start my weekend? Well with a pink newspaper and gelato of course! . It’s been too long since I posted a photo of one of my pretty gelato finds… winter you will not hold me back! In summer I shared my best tips for getting a gelato photo like this and I wanted to share it again because I feel like it’s just a life skill we should all have. . First scope out your photo location, have your camera ready to go, buy your ice-cream (pick the most photogenic colours of course, oh and don’t forget some napkins just incase that ice-cream drips). Once you have it run really fast (but not so fast that your ice-cream falls off) to that location. Then stretch your arm out as far away as possible so you get it all in the shot and take as many photos as possible as quickly as you can, all while trying to get your hand to look effortlessly elegant. Oh and then you have about 5 seconds to eat it before it’s a puddle at your feet! . This whole process is much easier in winter when your gelato doesn’t melt very quickly and you have an amazing friend to take the photo for you! Thanks @fouraway 😘 . When was the last time you and a friend had fun getting a photo that had passers by staring at you in bemusement? . PS. This newspaper really is pink - I found it in Milan and it’s called the LaGazzetta Sportiva and is all about sports! If you want this photo as a wallpaper head over to Stories. . . . . . #milan#milano#milanfashionweek#milanomoda#milanotoday#milanitaly#visitmilano#ilovemilano#ig_milano#italytrip#italytravel#radgirlslife#passionpassport#darlingescape#prettycitytravel#darlingplaces#europe_vacations#the_daily_traveller#italianicecream#gelati#gelateria

Hello my name is Jayde and I love big pom-poms on my beanies, pink sunrises and that satisfying squeaky crunchy noise that fresh snow makes when you walk on it… if you don’t know the sound I am talking about swipe across to hear it in my video of this moment. . Are there any sounds you just love to hear? As well as crunchy snow I also love the sound of scrabble pieces clicking together, of little birds chirping and newspaper pages being turned… . P.S Last time I posted a video with my post I got a lot of questions about how I edited it to be consistent with my photo. And you guys know I never hold any information back so I’m more than happy to share that I use the video editor in the VSCO app to apply filters to videos. Unfortunately this editor is only available in the paid version of the app but you can also use InShot as a free basic editor alternative. . . . . . #whitepod#whitepodhotel#myswitzerland#switzerlandwonderland#exploreswitzerland#loveswitzerland#beautifulswitzerland#switzerlandwinterwonderland#thebeautifulswitzerland#glamping#snowglamping#snowcamping#igloo#beautifuldestinations#instatravel#adventurebeautifully#girlstraveltale

When your igloo gets snowed in the only thing left to do is dance… . We weren’t really snowed in! But we pretended we were so we had a good excuse to enjoy this dreamy view over the alps, play board games in front of the fire, read books and do a little twirl of course! . Speaking of getting stuck in places, I have this irrational fear of getting stuck in elevators. I even have recurring dreams about it and I have no idea why. . Does anybody know much about the psychology of dreams, or perhaps there is a recurring dream you’ve been having? I always find the psychology behind dreams so interesting! .

Double tap if you plan on ticking off some of your bucket list items in 2019! . Fresh powdery snow, sparkly sunshine and fluffy huskies everywhere… This moment is officially up there with some of the most magical moments we’ve had on our travels so far and has been on our bucket list for quite a while. . I mean you know you’ve caught a good day when even your guide (who does this every day in winter) asks if it’s ok to stop so he can take photos of the scenery. .

Something I really loved about Singapore was its unique combination of urban landscapes and lush gardens. . Full of skyscrapers, blossoming flowers, sparkling city lights and waterfalls... I thought it was a nice reminder that we don’t need to put ourselves in a box or give ourselves a strictly defined category when it comes to our interests or careers. . We are living in the age of the slashies - giving ourselves all the titles we feel identify us, our passions and skills, and then putting a slash (/) between them - which is where the name ‘slashie’ comes from. . So to all the barista/painters, marketing manager/poets, teacher/stargazers and any other slashie combinations out there don’t let yourself be confined to one word. Stop holding yourself back - embrace all of the facets that make up YOU. . If you were to give yourself a slashie title (or perhaps you already have one), what would it be? Mine is a bit of a long one but here goes - Graphic Designer/Photographer/Marketer/Creative Coach/Wanderluster . . . . #passionmadempossible#visitsingapore#singaporecity#iluvsg#letsexploresg#exploresg#singaporeinsta#igsg#singaporetravel#wheninsingapore#artsciencemuseum#radgirlslife#girlaroundworld#culturetrip#best_worldplaces#the_daily_traveller

This is probably what it would look like if you could walk around inside my head
This is probably what it would look like if you could walk around inside my head when I’m feeling creative, have had a good day and feel like I’m on top of my to-do list… . And based on the photos you see on my Instagram it’s really easy to assume that is what it looks like inside my head all the time. Which is why I love to share snippets that show other parts of me as well. . My curated and well thought out Instagram feed is where I express my creativity. And my captions, Stories and IGTV are where I share the everyday me. The everyday me who takes out the rubbish, compares myself with others, has toothpaste on my shirt, struggles with irrational fears and eats dinner at 9pm in front of Netflix. . There are bright, sparkly parts of my mind and there are the dimmer corners that are not so nice to be in. Some of my days are full of adventure and success and others (more) are pretty damn everyday. . So if you’ve been hanging out in the part of your mind that has you comparing yourself to others, I just want to remind you that we all have our highs and lows, our light and dark, our ebbs and flows. You are not alone. . I’d love to hear something super ‘everyday’ that happened to you today. For me it was walking home from the bakery and slipping over (I’m very clumsy) on the ice covered path in front of a bunch of people. To make it even funnier I was wearing white jeans which our now in my washing pile. . . . . #passionmadepossible #visitsingapore#singaporecity #iluvsg #letsexploresg#exploresg #singaporeinsta #igsg#singaporetravel#wheninsingapore #passionpassport#citizenfemme #damestravel #girlyinspo#jaydesedits#artsciencemuseum#voyaged#globelletravels#pinktrotters#travelgirlsgo

Double tap if you’ve got your dream home all planned out in your head... down to the very last detail (like you even know what you want the kitchen sink to look like). . Strolling past these cute pastel hued houses in Singapore had me day dreaming about my ideal house. . I kid you not, on a whim I actually did a (really bad) drawing of my dream house the other day. I’m a big believer in writing our dreams and goals down on paper. It’s almost like it brings them out of our minds and into the real world, like the first step to making them happen. . Maybe one day I’ll share a photo of that house here and I can compare it to my sketch and see how accurate I got it! . Ad / thanks for showing me around your dream worthy city @visit_singapore .

I have a deck of positive affirmation cards and each day as part of my gratitude
I have a deck of positive affirmation cards and each day as part of my gratitude practice, I pick a card randomly. Last week I picked out a card that really made me think. So much so that I left it out on my desk all week. . This card says “Success is about the joy I feel. Success is not about getting it done; the measure of success in life is not the attainment of money or the stuff - the measure of success is absolutely the amount of joy you feel”. . It’s so true. The reason we have goals we are striving for is because we believe that once we achieve them we will feel happiness (joy). . And I love having big goals to work towards, but it’s also easy to forget about the things we already have that can bring us joy right now. . So I decided to make a list of the everyday things that bring me joy (it’s now pegged to my inspiration board at my desk) and here it is: Taking photos, beautiful lighting, exploring new places, family and friends, fresh sheets, blue skies, comfy clothes, sunshine on my face, Italian food, seeing dogs in the park, creating beautiful things, coffee, fuzzy socks, peppermint tea, pink sunsets, sushi, reading books, summer sandals, ticking off to-do lists, the scent of washing powder, walking outside, skirts/dresses with pockets, scented candles, my work, Fridays… . This list could go on forever but the point I am trying to make is that none of these things are extravagant or expensive or out of my reach. They are things I can enjoy right now. And the more we focus on the things we already have that bring us joy, the more we attract new things that will bring us joy. . Are there any things on this list that make you smile too? Or maybe you have some different ones to share? . PS. I mentioned that I love creating beautiful things, and one of those things I get asked about a lot is my Stories, so today on the blog I am sharing the list of apps I use. Go take a peek with the link in my bio. . . . . . #australia#visitaustralia#travelaustralia#seeaustralia#iloveaustralia#thisisaustralia#brisbane#visitbrisbane#bne#storybridge#queensland#visitqueensland#visitqld#jaydesedits#shetravelz#iamtb#damestravel#instatravel

Ad / Welcome to one of my very favourite beaches… this is Cabarita Beach and one of the reasons it’s so special to me is because it is where Jase and I celebrated our ten years together a few years ago. We got together in 2006 in high school! . And for some reason most of the special moments in our relationship have been celebrated in nature. Jase proposed under a big tree, we got married in a garden and then celebrated our ten years at the beach. Now we just so happen to live in one of the most nature focused countries in the world - Switzerland. . And while one hand is always holding his, in the other hand is usually my water bottle. For as long as I can remember I’ve always taken a water bottle with me EVERYWHERE and avoided buying disposable bottles whenever possible. . And just because I’m a fact nerd, here are a few things you might not know… 1. It requires 3 times the amount of water to produce a plastic bottle than it does to fill it 2. Plastic water bottles can take between 400 and 1,000 years to decompose 3. Only 1 in 5 plastic bottles are recycled . And so I was very excited to discover the crystal bottle by @aerabottle (gifted) - it is the perfect combination of my love for reuseable water bottles and pretty things. Aera Bottle also plant 1 tree for every bottle sold! Swipe for a close up of this beauty. #aerabottle . Anyone else always toting around their water bottle like their life depends on it? . . . . . #australia#visitaustralia#travelaustralia#seeaustralia#iloveaustralia#thisisaustralia#cabaritabeach#newsouthwales#visitnsw#radgirlslife#girlaroundworld#darlingescape#thetravelwomen#femmetravel#travelgirls#thetravelwomen#broadenyourhorizons#traveltagged#thewanderingtourist#culturetrip#best_worldplaces#the_daily_traveller#jaydesedits

Hello my name is Jayde and this is a picture of me in my natural habitat… it’s been a little while since I introduced myself around here so I just wanted to say hi and share a few things about myself. . 1. Years before I started this account and blogging I went to a colour therapist for fun and I still remember to this day what she told me… “You need to surround yourself with pink”… at the time I had no idea what she meant, but now it makes me smile with wonder. . 2. Two years ago I moved from Australia to Switzerland with Jase (my hubby), that is when I started blogging. Since then I’ve gone through so many days and weeks of feeling like I am not good enough to do what I do. But with time I am learning to change my thought patterns. We are all good enough and worthy enough to do what we love. . 3. Even though I am about to turn 30 I still get ID’d when I buy alcohol… looking younger than I am used to bother me SO much, but now I love it. . 4. Being naturally thin, the rest of the world has made it their mission throughout my entire life to constantly inform me that I need to eat more. FYI I eat PLENTY, I just have a fast metabolism. . 5. The guy at the post office keeps talking to me in Croatian because of my last name… but it’s actually my husband’s name and even he doesn’t speak it! I just smile and nod like an idiot every time… . My natural habitat is in the warmth of the sunshine surrounded by flowers, what’s yours? . . . . . #switzerland#iloveswitzerland#bestofswitzerland#switzerlandcolors#zurich#lucerne#moreromance#flowersmakemehappy#flowersofinstagram#instablooms#perfectlyme#smile#happy#girlaroundworld#darlingescape#femmetravel#damestravel#instatravel#adventurebeautifully#girlstraveltale#prettycitytravel#darlingplaces#ladieslovetotravel#effortlyss#quietinthewild#jaydesedits
