This was such a good read! I loved the format of it and as cliché as it sounds, it really is quite thought-provoking; it's not another cheesy 'self-help' book. Some of the concepts are difficult to grasp at first, but it's introduced me to new perspectives and I know I'll be re-reading it. One of my fav snippets: 'You perceive other people's happiness as 'my defeat' and that's why you can't celebrate it. However, once one is released from the schema of competition, the need to triumph over someone disappears.' SIDE NOTE: if you're looking for a book sleeve, check out @artisanal_ane as she's got some 🔥designs.
Documenting my travels is important for me, but I don’t spend too much time with my camera as I want to be present in the moment. I'll always take pictures, but I don’t think I’ll continue vlogging my trips. Whilst I enjoy being creative with video, I don’t enjoy how much time it takes compared to photography #CBA 🤷🏾♀️
Nothing beats a good view 🏞️ (except good food)
Halfway through the year and it's been a pretty good year so far!⠀ I took my first trip to Asia #solo, started an exciting new job and I chopped my hair off (which doesn't seem as big as the other two, but trust me, it was 😂)⠀ Here's to the rest of 2019 being productive, progressive and positive 💪🏾
Part two in the #spillthetea series. 🍵 . If you're after a fancier tea experience, head to the Grand Hotel in Nuwara Eliya for some high tea - over 100 types - and interior design inspo. And then take selfies in the toilets because they're posh AF 💅🏾
Let's #spillthetea 🍵 Did you know that green tea, white tea and black tea all come from the same leaf? It's the process that they go through that gives them each a distinct flavour. I went on two tea factory tours in Sri Lanka, so I'm basically a connoisseur now. As an avid tea drinker, learning about the process and tasting various types of teas was one of my highlights of my trip. If you're ever in SL and are a fan of tea, head to the Oak Ray Tea Factory in Nuwara Eliya for some free tasting. Coffee drinkers, mind ya business 😘😘
Happy Monday! Here's to a great week 💪🏾
How many monkeys can you spot? 🤔🤔 🐒🐒
