I’ve always found it really interesting to observe other people’s lives. I catch myself staring at photography blogs and personal social media very often, checking on what they find themselves doing on a typical day. I am fascinated by how different people are and how differently we live our lives- the different people we interact with, the different food we eat, hobbies and interests, and how we change day by day.
Truth is, I’ve never thought about how my days look like, I just sort of get on with them. The other day I stumbled upon a blog post which gave me the idea to try and photograph a whole day hour by hour, and so I did. It is really interesting to see the results and think about the way you go in your own life. If you haven’t done it before- I highly recommend!
So here is one Sunday of my life…
(I chose Sunday because it usually is the most exciting day of my week as I spent the other 6 at school or getting ready for school but Sunday is a day for me)
8am: Sunday light
I am a morning person so there is no such thing as weekend lay ins in my life. There is nothing better than waking up with the natural sunlight that energises your body. I am in love with every new day and look forward to the next one.
Breakfast buzz is the best kind of buzz, giving you energy for the rest of the day. I know that much from my good old nan but kind of decided to avoid it for years. Having breakfast is a recent thing for me but one of the best recent things to have happened…
10am: My OOTD
This is a really old dress but still going strong. I can’t remember where I bought it from but it was at least three years ago. It is perfect for an easy day and reminds me of long summer nights and barbecues in gardens with friends. Bag and hat are from Billabong.
11am: Walks around town
I find it so difficult to stay at home in the weekends and I am talking about any weather condition- from the warmest sun to the heaviest rain. There is just so much beauty out there…
My new love is this Cool lime iced green tea from Starbucks. At least one cup a day is absolutely essential. I still haven’t tried making it at home (how hard can it be) but I seriously need to because it is turning into a pricy obsession.
1pm: Quick stop to smell the flowers
Roses are my favourite. I grew up in a small town where there were roses growing wildly everywhere. My life has changed drastically from that and not often I have time to stop and enjoy the beautiful smell but when I do, I think about home.
2pm: Random buyings during my walk
A while ago my mum sent me a really cute handmade 3-pieces clay set- plate, bowl and cup, beautifully decorated and ever since I have been in love with pottery. I decided to start my own collection which is slowly growing and I am very pleased. These are my new additions to the family :).
3pm: My very own slice of heaven
I was very fortunate to move in a house with a lovely, sunny garden which I transformed into a little meadow- grass and flowers growing everywhere. I spend as much time as possible out here to submerge myself in my thoughts and to relax; to just breath and be.
4pm: Snack of choice
Smooth almond butter, spread on a toast of seeded bread- definitely a snack to die for.
I can’t help it, can’t sit still. Woods, meadows, trees and wildflowers are my oasis. Weekends are the best time to go out and explore. Fortunately, there is so much for exploring around where I live and my sister is the best hiking partner.
6pm: We found ourselves a castle
3 miles later in the woods we found a castle. The garden reminds me so much of Game of Thrones, we couldn’t help but play Lannister and giggle the whole time…
Best part of every walk is discovering something new. This time was a beautiful little lake covered by lilies. I haven’t seen many water lilies before and certainly not pink and purple ones so it was a magical moment for me.
8pm: Well deserved cup of tea
I can never miss a nice, warm cup of tea before I shower and get ready for bed. Yogi Liquorice tea with a drop of honey is my all time winner. Nothing soothes my soul quite like this one does and the little words of wisdom that it comes with always put a smile on my face and get me excited for every next day.
What does a day in your life look like?
P.S Excuse my chipped nail polish!
