Do you like you?

Hello! I am back in London after an amazing holiday in Turkey. I’ll share some photos from my trip on the blog soon, but I definitely recommend adding Turkey to your holiday wish-list if you’ve never been before. It was a bit of a shock to the system to be back at work yesterday but luckily it’s hump day again already today so not long to go until the weekend. This week’s motivational message is all about loving your natural beauty inspired by Colbie Caillat!

All women becomelike their mothers.That 5 680x1020 Do you like you?

“Wait a second, Why should you care, what they think of you.
When you’re all alone, by yourself, do you like you? Do you like you?”

These quotes are from Colbie’s new single called ‘Try’. It’s a beautiful song about loving yourself and the video which sees her strip down to a makeup-free face, has hit more than 15 million views and counting. Colbie Caillat: “Women have been going through this daily struggle of covering up what we really look like for years now, with makeup, Photoshop, or feeling the need to wear less clothing to be sexy. God forbid we look normal and human ;)” Check out the inspiring video below!

I’m just loving this song at the moment and think she’s setting a great example for girls and women all over the world. As said recently by Colbie “we are not alone in our insecurities” and remember that you don’t have to change a single thing! Happy Hump Day everyone :)

Escape life?

Hello or I should say ‘Merhaba’ from Turkey! I arrived in Turkey very late Sunday night and the last few days have been soaking up the sun and relaxing in the town of Bozburun with one of my best friends. Bozburun is a very quiet fisherman’s town near Marmaris on the Aegean Coast. It’s actually very nice to be in a quiet place for a bit to just relax and focus on not doing much at all. We’ve been sunbathing, swimming, reading, going out on the water & eating, and it feels wonderful to escape the hustle and bustle of London for a bit. Came across this quote the other day and thought it was appropriate for today’s midweek message!

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us!”

I actually took this photo today on my iPhone while out on a boat trip! Incredibly beautiful blue water right? For more photos of my holiday follow me on Instagram @dutchessroz. I hope you all have a Happy Hump Day. Today we will be heading to Datca and then after that off to Bodrum for a few nights of luxury. Oh isn’t holiday bliss? :)

What do you want?

The million dollar in life is – what do you want? Because life is what you make it and you can have anything you want if you work hard enough – right? So then only thing you have to do is to figure out WHAT it is you want and then going from point A to point B to get it. Simple, right?  WRONG!

50e9ec9afd8c310979db693341155388 What do you want?

“I am almost never sure about what I want but I am always sure about what I don’t want.”

Life is about the journey, the biggest and most important part of your journey is finding out what the world has to offer and determining if what is offered is what you will accept. Don’t limit yourself. Sometimes it is easier to find out what it is you DON’T want, so that you can begin the voyage of finding out what it is that you DO want. I think it’s important to evaluate your experiences and remember that what works for someone else might not work for you. IT’S OKAY; go to the next option (trust me, there are many) and be patient and realistic about your expectations.

Remember, life is a journey and journeys are not meant to be quick and easy. They are meant to be traveled. Happy Hump Day everyone :)

The choice is yours

Hello, it’s that time of the week again for some mid-week inspiration. Love this quote about the way to look at life. To think positive, to focus on what you want and to trust to process. Life doesn’t have to be hard, the choice is yours!

True right? Happy Hump Day everyone! I am actually very excited about today because I am going to Wimbledon for the day with two friends. It’s been on my to-do list ever since I moved to London and after 4 years I have still not managed to tick that box. So I thought, enough is enough – I need to go. So I’ve taken the day off work and we are going to line up very early to try and get into the grounds to soak up the atmosphere, watch some tennis and of course eat some strawberries and cream! Oeh and maybe some Pimm’s in the (hopefully) sunshine. Follow me on instagram here to see how we get on at Wimbledon today :)

Let it go!

Buongiorno from Italy! After 5 great days in beautiful Tuscany, today, I am leaving this paradise again to head home to the Netherlands for a few days for a special family occasion. I will post some photos from my trip on the blog soon, but for now just a quick midweek inspirational message. Not only have the last few days been super relaxing, I’ve explored some wonderful towns and eaten loads of delicous food, but it’s also been great to be away from everything to have space and time to think. Like about what really matters in life, and how sometimes it is important to just let it go and focus on the future.

Hope you’re all having a great week and wishing you a happy hump day! Ciao x
