A day in the sun

Fashion,1 March 2019

Since Marbella isn’t that familiar to me, I asked you for help and got many good tips on Instagram. Thank you for that. We decided to Uber up to Rachel’s eco love to hang in the sun, eat healthy and apparently shop glittery trousers as well ;). It was a cute place, although a bit cheesy for my taste but I guess that’s fine every now and then. The whole place is filled with signs of quotes and cute messages and the acai bowls are served individualized with your name written in mangoes. Most importantly, the food was really good, especially the avocado toasts and the lemonade.

We had a really relaxing and nice time and got a well-deserved little break from the hectic work schedule. It was also nice to eat something healthy every now and then in-between over salted restaurant meals. If you’re in Marbella, I can really recommend the cute area, because it felt peaceful and nice. Rachel’s eco love is also located next to Nobu, if you like to go there for dinner or drinks.

And if you love brunch places, I also recommend Hustle n’ flow even though I never had the chance to go myself. Juuli did and loved it, and it looked really nice and a friend of mine warmly recommended it as well.

Now it’s time to kick off the weekend. Have a nice one!

Dear Sofia,

You are good enough and you deserve just as much as everyone else does. Don’t carry so many secrets alone. Talk and most importantly- speak up! However, trust me, you will learn along the way to respect yourself and set your own standards and limits. You will also change a lot, although you’ve already seen the world, been on your own and experienced more than most of your friends.

Your bad patterns will end by accident. You can’t take credit for that! It’s out of your control. This is your changing point when you finally start accepting happiness. You will even make happiness, positivity and goodness your religion and trademark! It was a smart choice you made back then. Thank you.

I have no advice to give you, because every phase you go through will be needed to get right here, but you aren’t done and you never will be. I just hope that you would dare to trust that no asset is better or stronger than the other. It’s what you do with it. You just have to open up your eyes for your own strengths and recognize your weaknesses. Recognition is enough, because you can work on every weakness you have and develop. All you need is the will and you have lots of that even though you think you’re weak.

Bodily “flaws” however, don’t put any energy into those. They will change form, but they will follow you wherever you go year after year. So, don’t give them any attention, but let them live. They make you much more lovable.

And if I may say, some things just don’t flatter you. Don’t judge others, quiet yourself whenever you don’t have something good to say and don’t try to fit in if you have a feeling you don’t.

Eventually, when you finally realize what you want, you will realize you got everything you ever wanted.

With love,
