WHO YOU ARE..






It has been a little while since I have blogged..In amongst my travel and also trying to get my Greek passport, which is almost impossible, I have been having a lot of me time. 
A lot has changed in the last few months and this short holiday has turned into something way longer and nothing like I expected. 
You may have seen some of the posts I have been putting on instagram with some positive quotes and Eat, Pray, Love moments and as cheesy as it sounds, that is exactly what is happening. 
When you have a big change in your life some people dwell on it and others get up and move on. I'm always planning everything, stressing if I don't have an itinerary and this holiday has been all about being spontaneous and being alone A LOT. This would normally scare the SH*T out of me, but travelling alone has been one of the best things I've ever done. 
"Finding yourself" sounds silly to some but for me this is just the beginning. Loving who I am and being independent is the most liberating thing ever. I am currently on a beautiful island where my dad grew up called Ithaki in Greece, and coming back here has been an emotional and happy experience. 
Unfortunately this isn't a fashion post but more of a "Love who you are/finding myself" post in a nutshell and sorry there will be more to come. Accompanied by some photographs of me in a bikini, something I live in now, taken by a new friend and amazing photographer, Maxeen Kim.

And to finish it off, one of my favourite songs with some lyrics that are quite relevant. 
Hope you enjoy xx

"Who You Are"

I stare at my reflection in the mirror:
"Why am I doing this to myself?"
Losing my mind on a tiny error,
I nearly left the real me on the shelf.
No, no, no, no, no...

Don't lose who you are in the blur of the stars!
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay.
Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart.
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are!

Brushing my hair—do I look perfect?
I forgot what to do to fit the mould, yeah!
The more I try the less it's working, yeah
'Cause everything inside me screams
No, no, no, no, no...

Don't lose who you are in the blur of the stars!
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay.
Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart.
But tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
There's nothing wrong with who you are!

Yes, no, egos, fake shows, like whoa!
Just go and leave me alone!
Real talk, real life, good love, goodnight,
With a smile that's my home!
That's my home, no...

No, no, no, no, no...

Don't lose who you are in the blur of the stars!
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay...
Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart.
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are!
Yeah yeah yeah
