Well, hello there! With this article, I decided to start a new chapter of my life. I always wanted to own a blog with articles written in the English language, so more people can read it, but I guess I never had the “guts” to do it. I was always insecure about my foreign language skills, so I was writing one in my “mother tongue”. But with the start of a new decade, on 00:00 1/1/2020, something inside of me changed. I’ve just felt that I don’t wanna waste more time daydreaming about my life goals and instead of it, I want to act. This year, I simply want to achieve (or at least, almost achieve) every goal I had probably since 2013.. including this blog.
When it comes to my online existence, I’ve been blogging since 2014 on my previous blog mostly about beauty (I am a big make-up lover!) but on this blog, I want to be more meaningful. I also want to write a lifestyle, informational and travel posts. Simply, I just want to share everything I love.
- Get completely cruelty-free
I always loved receiving all those beautiful, shimmery and nice smelling PR packages of brands I used to collaborate with… but at what cost? So I ended all of these collaborations only a few days ago and only stayed with brands who don’t torture our tiny cute friends. This year I want to use up all the cosmetics I have at home from tested brands and never buy anything from them again.
- Try raw vegan lifestyle + intermittent fasting
To be honest, I kinda believe that the condition of your digestion affects your mental health, so I want to try eating raw vegan, at least for a while. I’ve been vegetarian for about 6 years now, and I think that going vegan can seriously improve my health and whole life because lately, I’ve found out that I feel some kind of anxiety after eating milk products.
- Shop only when I need to
I am an obsessive shopper, so I want to buy as little stuff as possible. It means, this year I will not be buying magazines, junk food, tons of cosmetics and instead of it I will only buy things I urgently need… in a better quality, of course. This step will also include making a positive impact on the planet – less waste.
- Take care of my blog(s) and social media
Being a full-time blogger was my dream since 2014 when I started my first one. Next, I wanted to start a YouTube channel. This year, I will hopefully achieve everything, or at least starting my YouTube career.
- Attend school (again)
Since I graduated high school I was working on my own and later on, I participated in some really shitty jobs. According to the fact that wages in Slovakia are really small (when you are working for someone you usually have about 480 euros/month), I decided to study computer science and then maybe start some small freelance business.
- Live more
Laugh more, sing more, dance more, travel more, drink tea more, watch sunsets and sundowns more, read more, relax more, go out more, spend time with my family more. Simply, live more.
