So something (somewhat) different on the blog today! Rather than writing about my normal stuff I have something a little more personal, and a little more localised. Now what I mean by this is that this post, although anyone can read it, is specifically aimed at those in Cardiff and Cardiff University.
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.
