Nowadays it's hard to find a place in the city which doesn't have any built surroundings, you could find such places only in the suburban area but you are always able to see some evidence of life not far away from you.
The sea is different, you know you're in the middle of nowhere until you reach the coast. Well, the desert is even more scarifyingly majestic. You're aware you are on the land and not floating in the unendless waters at the same time you slowly start realising that you're in fact far away from all kinds of life.
No animals, no plants, no nothing, not even reptiles, snakes or cockroaches. The environment is too harsh even for them. It's only you, the sand, some rocks and the sky. You rely on yourself and every single action is of a great importance. You should think few steps ahead otherwise things might go rapidly go in the wrong direction!
We've never thought we could feel that way but the desert made us do. You cannot simply go to the desert and return the same person. It blows your mind, it changes you forever.

Each of us has a story. This story is the journey we call our life, and within that life is a song.
It’s your Heart Song.
It has taken me almost 40 years to fully understand and appreciate that each person we encounter, from the clerk at the grocery store to the people with whom we have relationships, comes into our lives for a reason or a season, to teach us something or for us to teach them.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These lessons may be contained in a moment of simple kindness or courtesy, a smile or shared laughter, or something far greater. Sometimes people, moments, or experiences come to help us find our heart song. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lapland and the people here, my family, are forever a part of my heart song. Over 400 years of them being here makes this place an anchor for my heart always and forever. 💙⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s Monday, get up and create something amazing this week. 💖 this place was the cutest, how can you not take a moment and capture a photo?! •
📍location: Badung, Bali, Indonesia
having the whole island to yourself >>>>
it was totally worth taking multiple boat transfers & having conversations that were lost in translation to get to this tiny little island 🌴😆
I’m running away from this cold snap but I’ll be back in a New York minute ❄️🍎 next stop LA
this bridge is pretty every season ♥️
Today is #bluemonday
- the most depressing day of the year.
Mental health never used to be that close to my heart. I never really considered the fact that problems can affect everyone, and even the seemingly happiest of people can be struggling in silence every day.
We need to #breakthestigma
around speaking up about mental health issues. It’s okay to not be okay. And it’s okay to ask for help.
I’ve struggled with Seasonal Affective Disorder for the last three years (at least). I never really realised it until this year, as I always had a trip to look forward to, which would “get me through” the winter.
Lots of people here probably don’t know what it is, and even I’m not 100% sure. It affects everyone differently. For me, I feel the following:
• overwhelming sporadic feelings of sadness for no reason
• a lack of motivation & feeling like there’s no point to anything
• feeling trapped and like there is no light at the end of the tunnel
• feeling worthless, useless & generally like the world wouldn’t miss me if I were gone
• feeling very tired, struggling to get out of bed in the mornings or wanting to sleep at random times of the day
• feeling like I can’t be bothered with just about everything
• feeling snappy & irritable all the time (like constant PMT)
I’m not on antidepressants and I hope I won’t ever be. To other girls reading this, coming off the hormonal contraceptive has helped me, it might for you too. I also find myself writing more, being creative like painting and doodling, and embracing the couch potato feeling when I want to. But going to the gym is an escape for me - it’s true what they say, endorphins really do make you feel good (just got to get myself off the couch to get there!)
Look after yourselves at this time of year as well as all year round. I am always here if you want someone to talk to 💙 if not, call the Samaritans on 116 123 (UK).
Dreaming of hot summer days 🌼
Where’s your favorite summer spot?
Starting off 2019 in Mexico with my extraordinary fiancé far away from the cold with amazing people and beautiful scenery has been the best start to a wonderful year. I couldn’t be happier! 🤤🥰
There’s something about “winters” in Miami 🌞
Thank you Martin Luther King Jr. for teaching us how love is the most durable power in the world and that the time is always right to do what is right ❤️🇺🇸 #martinlutherkingjr #MLKDay
On our road trip down the California coast, we stayed at such a cool hotel - the Madonna Inn, which has over 110 rooms all in different fun themes. The hotel decorations made it feel like a fairytale 👑
Visto che oggi si parla tanto di 💙 e che questo è in testa alla classifica dei miei scatti preferiti ☺️
Nature knows what to do without being told.
We too have an internal spirit that guides us... if we create the space & time to go inward.
Live intentionally. Live on purpose.
Current mood as I remain trapped in Boston due to weather ❄️ .
... with no coat still lol
I honestly don’t know how you northerners do it. I don’t even want to leave my hotel when it’s this cold. I feel like I can’t function. This trip only solidifies my decision to never move north of Florida haha. Maybe Hawaii but that’s about it 🌺 😂
The more you know something the less you really know because you reach a depth of understanding of how much more there is to know. The older I get the less I know what I want I want to do with my life even though I'm certain dance and travel are at the route of it all. I'm allowing myself this time to really explore these worlds and it's making me realize how small I am and how hard I need to work to achieve my goals. I'm curious though, do you ever reach a stage that you feel like you know or literally for the rest of your life you'll go just feeling like you know less and less?

💕 I decided to get us matching bracelets this year to represent all of the vacations we have taken together! The top bracelet represents our Caribbean cruises we have taken! It has sand from the Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Cozumel, Honduras & Belize! The bottom has sands from our European cruise we took this past summer! It features sands from Positano, Santorini, Mykonos, Athens & Rhodes! I am soooo IN LOVE with the way these turned out and truly 100% believe this is such an AWESOME company who truly creates pieces of jewelry that are so meaningful and special. I love that my mom and I will be able to carry around such special locations with us on our wrists! Dune Jewelry has SO MANY different banks (over 3,500 locations to choose from) of various elements.

Earthy colours are my favourite, particularly when they’re combined with activities outside. They’re also perfect for putting together a safari inspired outfit. 🦁For more safari outfit inspo, check out my recent blog post - #linkinbio #leatherandsoie
so inviting.. but so freezing cold.. I'll be back this summer.
Hey Sydney, I miss you. 👋🏽
Being back home, back in a routine, and back with my friends is so nice, but I think I left a little bit of my heart in Australia, as cheesy as it sounds. 🤷🏼♀️ ⠀⠀
Sydney is a GORGEOUS city. It’s relatively clean, safe, and uncrowned when you think about the fact that nearly 6 million people live there! ⠀⠀
The beaches are breath-taking, the ferries are awesome for catching harbor views, and the abundance of super yummy Asian food is amazing. 👏🏼 ⠀⠀
Does anyone have Sydney on their list of places to visit? 😉
Ese momento en el que debería emerger Jason Momoa...
Not pictured: my car parked on the other side of the road 🙈 I had to stop the car in the minute I saw this cute little view 🌿 when road tripping around a place, do you make plans or do you like to stop whenever and wherever you like? ✨
it's just motion, and it's just time
and every day we find ourselves
a little further down the line
11-11-2018. Everytime I’m in doubt, I look back to this photo. As the Summer could be longer, the sunflowers chose to bloom close to Winter, I will never stop being a dreamer. .
