This past year has been incredible for me. Do you want to know one of the main reasons why? I have educated myself. I have educated myself on our planet, on my life and what it can mean in this world, and I have educated myself on what I want from my future and my life. There have been numerous resources I have used to help me on this journey and I wanted to share them with you. And I guess, these resources have changed my life. That sounds super cliché I know, but it’s true. They have allowed me to decide what I want for my future, and I’m using them to help me shape it.
Recently, when at the airport on my way to Sicily, I stumbled into a book shop to discover they had a “half price” sale going on. This to me is very exciting news, so I quickly went to the “personal development” section to get my hands on some life changing books. And that I did. I found Talk Like TED: The 9 Public-Speaking Secrets of the World’s Top Minds, paid and headed to my flight.
I tweeted about whether people would be interested in a post like this and as I got such a positive response, I thought it sounded like a plan! I’ve never gone travelling before, just on family holidays, so this was all new to me! I went to the blogging community to get tips and tricks to prepare me for my 5 weeks in South East Asia, so I thought I’d compile a list of what worked for me!
Welcome back to the new and improved LaLiviLou! I’m so excited to be back and sharing new content with you! I’m sorry it took a little while BUT it’s definitely worth the wait!
I explained super briefly on my Facebook page the reasons why I redesigned LaLiviLou, but I thought I’d go into little bit more detail on here.
I am hating how quickly this trip is going! I swear I just got here and now I’m already half way through my time in South East Asia!!
I hear the weather back home hasn’t been too fabulous, but I hope you’re all enjoying your summer! It’s so incredible humid here, so all a bit sweaty! (Ain’t that lovely!)
Wow I cannot believe my time in Vietnam is over!! I spent two glorious weeks in the beautiful country and I honestly feel so sad to have left!
I’m currently prepping for my overnight train to Chiang Mai from Bangkok, which I have to say I’m strangely looking forward to! I’ve never used an overnight train before so here’s another adventure!
So my time in Hanoi has come to an end and I’m now off to Hue. In fact as I’m writing this I’m currently waiting at my boarding gate because my flight to Hue has been delayed.
I turned 20 last week! I really don’t feel in anyway shape or form feel old enough to be, as my boyfriend has lovingly put it, “half way to 40”. But then I guess does anyone ever really feel their age?
I should also apologise for not posting last week! I was meant to post but I was bad and well just didn’t. So sorry about that!
For those of you that read my post on Minimalism, here’s a little update for you! (If you haven’t read it, it might make sense to first!) I’ve been taking steps to de-clutter my life, I’m proud of the progress I’ve made so be proud of me too! Haha, well you don’t have to be, but here’s what I’ve done in case you’re interested in making some changes yourself! Read More
These last few months I’ve had an unbelievable journey. It started back in April, when I made the decision to up my health game. I’m sure you’ve seen on the blog that I’ve been looking more at my body and how to look after it with food, through my more plant based lifestyle and cutting out dairy. But when looking after your body you need to add physical exercise so that is what I did.
First things first, as of 11:00am today I will have officially finished my second year at university! Crazy! I have a 9am exam so wish me luck!
For my British readers, this is for you. Tomorrow is probably one of the most important days of the year because it is a general election. And for me, it is the first time I am legally old enough to vote in a general election as last time I missed out by a month! I should outline first, this post will have no political position, as in my opinion, that’s up to you to determine, not for me to tell you. So I shall be writing this from as neutral a perspective as possible, keeping my own political views to myself. I’m sure some people reading this should think that I should perhaps speak out about my views, but in my opinion politics is personal to people. You don’t have the right to try and change mine, so I don’t see what right I have to try and change yours.
As a way to escape from the stress that is exam season, I found myself binge watching Netflix. But not rubbish TV shows: documentaries.
It’s been so educational watching and learning new things about the world we live in. After seeing Sarah post on instagram from The Scarlett State about the documentary A Plastic Ocean I decided to give it a go.
