The Magic of Taking Action (With No Motivation)

Do you know when you don’t feel like doing anything at all? You’re feeling tired or annoyed or a bit down… Motivation is at level 0. Well, a great way to change that state is taking action. Doing something. Especially when you don’t feel like doing anything and you’re tired ;) Unless you REALLY are tired and need to rest, of course. But a lot of the times, you’re not really tired, it’s just your mind making you stay wherever you are. Now when I have a thought like “I’m tired” I think – Ok, great, and what’s next ;) I don’t pay attention to it at all :) What I noticed later and the message I keep hearing is that motivation isn’t really that necessary. And motivation comes after you start. I’ve seen that in play when I workout. I decided to workout every Saturday in the gym, for…

One Thing that Stops You From Doing What You Want

Lately I’ve been feeling a lack of inspiration to write on the blog. There’s a lot of resistance! I talked before about my doubts regarding what to write about. On the one side, I feel like writing more about personal development, coaching, and so on. Which is one of my passions. I’m always learning more and discovering things that I think that are interesting for you too! On the other side, I think you rather hear about fashion and style. So I stay stuck ;) In the meanwhile, I’ve decided to write about the two themes, because really, coaching helps with any change, including your image and style. So I hope you like it! Today I want to tell you about resistance. I realized resistance sucks. And what is resistance? – you ask ;) For me, resistance is a super annoying thing that shows up when you decide to do…

Two Steps to Having the Style You Desire

Today I wanted to talk about what’s stopping you from having the style you desire. It’s easy to stay trapped and hidden in the limitations that the world gives us (and that you give yourself). For example, these types of thoughts: Style is easy for some people, but I’m not one of them Having style is difficult and it takes a lot of money to always look good I’ve tried and failed, it’s difficult for me, why is this time going to be different? That girl is skinny / young / cute, so it’s easy for her. Etc. What if I told you that it is possible, that it can be very easy and that anyone can have style? What if I told you that style has nothing to do with your age, your body, your weight or your idea of your beauty? Can you believe that? I wanted to tell…

The Key to Creating YOUR Personal Style

Wanna know how to create a more personal style? Then you’ll like to know that following your intuition is the fastest way to create and find YOUR style. It’s THE key ;) Something interesting happened to me today, more or less. I was walking down the street when I noticed a girl with a look that I loved. Similar to the one in the photo of the post (more or less because her pants were more beautiful and I added the bag and earrings ;)). So far nothing new, I’m always noticing what people wear, to take ideas ;). The difference was that I remembered that, a few days ago, I loved to see the same kind of pants, in another girl. Some time ago this probably wouldn’t change anything for me, because I wasn’t aware of my intuition, the ideas I got through the day. Now, when I notice…

Makeover: Alexandra’s Before & After

Do you like makeovers? I love to see and make them ;) Today I’m writing about Alexandra’s makeover. She gained some weight because she had two kids in a row. Her body changed so she didn’t know what to wear anymore. She was also feeling a little outdated – she did not know how to use some of the trends she saw other women using. And she had a common doubt: how to look chicer and less sporty / casual (she has to be practical and comfortable during the day but also look sophisticated for meetings during the day). I gave her some tips to favor her body right now. And to be able to use the new trends easily, and also create casual-chic outfits, I showed her my app that solves both situations. You can see more here. The looks we chose for the makeover have to do with lengthening Alexandra’s figure so she feels more elegant, and also wearing the pieces she likes the most…
