My Amazing Valentina!

A Beautiful Mug I had my eyes one for a while now and delicious Strawberry and Aloe Tea!

A Beautiful Mug I had my eyes on for a while now and delicious Strawberry and Aloe Tea!

Just look at this beautiful gift my dear friend Valentina sent me today! I have severe bronchitis and have to stay home this week but Valentina made sure my roommate brought me back this thoughtful gift. The gift itself is beautiful of course but for me is all about the thought behind the gift and knowing how thoughtful Valentina is I know all the amazing thoughts she put into it! Thank you so much for making my day EXTRA EXTRA BRIGHT! I am still smiling from ear to ear as I write this. My heart melts completely to know that I have such caring and amazing friends in my life.

Valentina!

Valentina!

The day I took this picture I started to think of a post I needed to write about Valentina because of all we have shared in such a short period of time of knowing each other, I just knew I have to dedicate a whole post to her. Because she inspires me in so many ways that she may never even know. Valentina is my partner of coffee-shops and dream crimes!

The Universe is funny, clever and knows exactly what to do with your life because interestingly enough Valentina and I happen to have the same shift at work which is the reason why our friendship has grown to a friendship I know will last a lifetime! This is how we started to go enjoy some fun and dreamy chats after work over an awesome cup of tea, coffee, and of course our favorite Chia Latte from Urban House!

We do not solve world problems over our cups of tea and coffee but having a loyal friend when you live far away from home who is there to listened to you unconditionally is very special and creates a bond very hard to break.

Meeting Valentina and all the incredible friends I have made since moving to Slovakia is one of the main reasons I would NEVER regret my decision of coming here. Today I also received other lovely texts from my friends from work to check up on my health status, so sweet! :)

But anyway I am just beyond Thankful with the Universe for putting such amazing people in my path. Thank you Valentina for your constant inspiration on everything from life to travel, to being courageous, daring me to dream bigger, our love for Art and Creativity, and all you do for those around you! You are a truly Amazing and Inspirational friend! :)

Lastly a song of course!

2014! Definitely A Great Year!

2014 Best Moments2014 – A very exciting year for me as I opened myself to so many opportunities, the power of saying “Yes” is incredible.

But of course not all was rainbows, unicorns, and butterflies in 2014 but for the most part it turnout to be a GREAT year.

I started to plan more how I could quit my job and go on a “Self-Searching Adventure”. This adventure didn’t happened quite as I planned or expected it but still I am happy how it turned out!

May 9th was my last day at my job, it was a great feeling leaving this job, the job wasn’t even bad but I was just not thriving in it and was feeling like my life had little purpose with this job. I urge you to plan ways on how to change your current job if you feel like I felt, it is not a good feeling and I don’t wish it on anyone.

May 16th – One of my best friends Katinka came to visit me in Boston for 2 weeks! We had a very nice and relaxing time hanging out in Boston, Connecticut, and NYC! And it felt amazing to really feel Free and Alive in a very long time also to spend some quality time with my bestie!

May 30th – I headed to Dominican Republic! Right after Katinka left I started to feel a extreme urge to visit my roots and to see my grandparents so I went very crazy and booked a flight right on the spot! My God I can not express how thankful and grateful I feel to have gone back to DR. I didn’t know how much I needed to go back to my country but I was overwhelm with happiness just been back and seeing my people, seriously there were times I felt like crying of pure happiness, it was that magical.

June 8th – I return to Boston, it was a very short trip and wish I planned to stay longer in DR but I was waiting on news of another opportunity and didn’t know if I could stay too long.

After coming back I realized how fast money was running out and even though I still had some left I still was not working and when you are not working managing your money for traveling and fun is not the easiest so I had to take a reality check and decided to babysit for a few weeks while I waited for my next opportunity.  This 3 weeks taught me a lot and I think in a way they even prepared for what came later on.

July 18th – I went to NYC once again but this time it was not about a vacation, it was to take the time to spend sometime with my Aunt Ramo who is like a second Mother to me. I realize how crazy it is that we don’t take time to spend with our love ones on a regular bases that it takes feeling free of everything to finally take the time to look around and say “Wow, why had I not contacted that someone I love so dearly sooner?”, I think it has to do with being stressed, overworked, and not filling fulfill in life. I had days were all I wanted to do was return home eat something fast and just sleep or watch a tv show until I did the same thing allover the next day, definitely not the best way to live your life as life is meant to be lived!

July 23rd I returned back home and this time I booked my ticket for my opportunity to move and work in Europe, Slovakia to be exact! You can read about that here

July 31st – I got on a plane to my new life. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity I’m living right now to work and live in a different country. To finally feel more alive and with more purpose at work but most of all to finally feel like I am really learning to work to live and not live to work

But I do have to say the even though I am working more to live I still quite like my job, now I work as a teacher in a Kindergarten and I really have come to love my children, to thrive in making new activities for my classes, and just overall been surrounded by nice and like minded people. Of course though that work will always be work and I too have my days were I wake up and simply wish I could spend my time another way but working is part of life. Not sure if there is a job where I will feel 110 percent happy all the time but if there is such job I’m looking forward to it! For now, I’m right where I need to be.

In 2014 I also got to see other magical places such as:

  • Liptov and Banská Štiavnica, Slovakia
  • Budapest, Hungary
  • Vienna, Austria
  • Brussels, Belgium
  • The Hague & Amsterdam, Holland
  • Bled, Slovenia

And lastly celebrated the end of 2014 – New Years Eve watching the Fireworks by the Danube in Bratislava.

This year I also met someone, someone who maybe one day I will write about here on the blog but for now is just someone who in Frida Kahlo’s words looks at me like I may be magic! ;)

This is also the year the I have traveled the most, I was in 8 countries this year! And I am more than grateful for all the travel opportunities and can’t not wait to see where I will go in 2015!

Somehow it felt like most the things that happened to me in 2014 were already planned out for me… as Paulo Coelho would say “It’s written.”

Now of course some of my favorite pictures of 2014!

My True Blood … ABC Drink

Image

Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 9.35.20 PMMy TrueBlood… ABC smoothie a Great Little Detoxifier!

1 Apple
1 Beet
1 Carrot
If you Wish add Lemon, Blend… At last Drink Up & Enjoy!

Let’s get a bit personal… about 1 year ago I was having very bad problems in regards to my period. I simply was not getting my period, around the same time I was also having a lot of back pain and funny enough due to the back pain is how I stumbled upon this little magical juice!

A holistic/masseuse and simply amazing woman who I visit for a massage told me to try “ABC juice” because she was not only giving me a massage but she was also genuinely interested in learning about my health and she suggest this juice.

I kid you not, after FOUR straight months of NOT getting my period and before that getting my period very irregularly I got my period that same week of making this juice. After that miracle I wholeheartedly believe in the magic of this juice and still make it every now and then.

These are some of the benefits she told me about the ABC Juice:

  • Helps with Period
  • Helps to better Skin quality and Acne Problems
  • Helps your digestive system
  • Cleanses you liver, pancreas, and kidney
  • Cleanses your body of toxins
  • Can seriously help you after a Hangover* ;)

*If you are wondering about the taste I seriously don’t mind it, specially if you put extra pieces of apple but is not necessary and is my period regular now, YES! :)

Polévka z červené řepy = Beetroot Soup!

The first soup I tried in Slovakia was Beetroot soup! It was super delicious and quite interesting as it was my first time trying it and I had never even heard of Beetroot Soup. Beetroot is said to have tons of benefits therefore this soup plus the juice will probably do magic to the human body!

If you try these please let me know in the comments! I hope it helps you as much as it has helped me.

Lastly, songs of the moment, the videos are pretty cool, interesting and Wow the “Take Me to Church” Video is just WOW incredible and sad, and mesmerizing all at once. After such video I can help to Wish that one day we will be able to accept everyone for what they are just simply human beings without all the stupid labels that are so unnecessary and only bring hatred to this world.

Kwabs – Walk

Hozier – Take Me To Church

Enjoy! :)

Spice Up Your Black Skinny Jeans or Plain Tops!

tumblr_mlzv0gGGuA1sp26bho1_1280A little while ago my cousin asked me what she could wear to look thinner… There are some tricks to looking trimmer but at the end of the day I think is how you wear it not what you wear… I say this because I can see the prettiest girl with the best outfit yet if her persona or aura seems condescending it completely ruins her look for me. But if you are dress nice and have a beautiful smile that really charms me or wearing rags as long as your aura is radiant you will shine! There is something about a genuine smile that is just priceless no matter what you are wearing, if you have a smile on your face I guarantee that you are bound to charm others.

But a trick or two that I think will help is wearing black or more neutral colors and very little patterns, and less funky clothing. Though don’t forget to have fun, it is your life after all so be happy and comfortable with what you choose to wear. Adding more extravagant accessory is always best and will still give you the super cool edge on your outfit. For example I prefer to wear a shoe or bag or even scarf the will be more out there and just keep my clothes on the simple side.

Here is an example of how I would spice up a simple black or white T-shirt:

FullSizeRenderThese are just some simple ideas to have fun with and get inspiration from, hope you enjoy them! :)

Sometimes Life Feels Just Like a Song…

Home-Im-a-phoenix-in-theI always find myself relating my life to the music I listen to, it is so easy for me to see a part of my life in the lines of a song or even in the mood of the melody. This song is definitely a certain mood I’m in at the moment so I thought it would be nice to save it as a memory because after all a blog is sort of a digital diary of someone’s life and what they felt in that exact moment. ‘Home’ for me has change so many times in my life  that it makes me relate to this song even more, specially now as I live once again in another place that I get to call home though this one is different as it was my decision and not my parents or the circumstances around my life in the moment. ‘Home’ is always going to be for me how my heart feels, the level of happiness I feel inside. The location doesn’t really seem to matter but what always seems to matter most is the people we surround ourselves with in each new place.

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset*I took this picture last year & decided to write this on it as it fits with the mood of the songs I listed below.

Songs of the moment:

Gabrielle Aplin – Home

Gabrielle Aplin – Please Don’t Say You Love Me

Tom Odell – Another Love

Matt Corby Brother – Brother

For me is also intriguing to see or read what the artist had to say about the lyrics. Gabrielle explained the lyrics to each of her songs on her English Rain album on a blog post. This is the explanation of Home:

I’ve definitely written about Home before. I had the chorus for about a year before I finished the song. I wrote it when I moved to London two years ago. It’s about realising where home is for you. For me it wasn’t the house I was in but the people I was with.

Inspo Quotes1*Some Images are mine others I collected from Google.

Enjoy Your Sunday,

Dani :)

 

I Lived…

Processed with Moldiv

I just finished balling my eyes out to this amazing video and song… This has been the song of the year for me, I am completely in love with this song actually I have been in love with this song for a long long time now but tonight I watched the video for the first time and just before I watched it I said to myself “Video, please don’t disappoint me.” I said this because I absolutely LOVE when videos actually happen to match or go with the lyrics of the song. Call me OCD but seriously is such a shame to hear a wonderful song and then go watch the video and think WTF did I just watch. A song is already such an emotional thing therefore for me the visual part is significantly as important as the song. But I have to say this video did not disappoint me at all, in fact I love it! Loved it so much I even cried, I cried because seriously me and so many others complain daily for such little ridiculous things but here is someone who really has suffer and is still embracing every minute of his life, that’s inspirational.

I won’t stop complaining just from simply watching this video, complaining is a part of being human but watching something like this just reminds me of how blessed I am, and how much I often take for granted. This year has been super interesting and full of emotions for me maybe this is why this song touches me so much but I just wanted to share with anyone who may be having a bad day or simply just because is a magnificent song and everyone ought to hear it at least once. Thank you Universe for all that I have, all that I have lived, I wouldn’t change anything in my life. Life is beautiful even with is obstacles, as I like to say “Life is not about a Perfect Ending but Perfect Moments that make life worth it.”

.

A comment I liked from a Youtuber under this video:

Screen Shot 2014-12-01 at 8.24.13 PMThank you One Republic for creating an spectacular song that really touched me even before watching the video which is just as amazing!

Hope you enjoy it as much as me and that at the end of your life you can say “I LIVED!”

Na Zdravie to New Beginnings!

Drum Roll please!!!! ta ta ta taddadat t ta ta a da tt taaa… I have left the States and I am currently living in Europe, Slovakia to be exact!!!

It has been 31 days since my best friend Loh and I arrived in what is to be our new home for 1 year or perhaps 2! This is the BIG Change I hinted on a previous post, since April of this year Loh told me about the opportunity to work in Slovakia teaching in a private Kindergarten and I figured why not let’s apply! But I have to say the Life is quite funny because I was planning to quit my job and travel to Norway to “find myself” very cliche of me but I felt lost/numb/and lifeless ever since graduating college and Norway seem so breathtakingly beautiful plus I felt in love with the images of this magic new land and even with the language, I was so seriously set on going there that I was learning Norwegian on my own and funny enough I found a man who offer to teach me, such a strange sign that Norway was where I was meant to go. But instead of Norway I ended up in Slovakia, a country that I knew was in Europe but seriously that’s all I knew about it and a country I had never dreamed of visiting. It is quite interesting and peculiar the way life works, I really do believe the some things or maybe everything is already written for us but sometimes we alter what is written if we don’t follow the signs. I really thought all signs were leading me to Norway but I have no idea why end up in Nitra, Slovakia though I do feel very strong about the fact that I am exactly were I am meant to be right now in my life and perhaps one day I will reach Norway but for now I am exactly where I need to be. I am living “my own personal legend” as Paulo Coelho would say in “The Alchemist.”

BTW I recently read “The Alchemist for the first time and I am angry I did not read it earlier on in life but again maybe now is when I needed it most so perhaps it is the perfect timing for me to have read it, and I strongly recommend you to read it if you haven’t already because it is magnificent!

Back to Slovakia and our work… Well so far the program hasn’t been fully organized but I figured this would happen as Europeans just seem more relax about everything and even though I don’t love uncertainty it is refreshing to be in a country where people work to live rather than live to work, that is my favorite thing about all the European countries I have visited that I have noticed.

As for me so far I am beyond happy with my decision to come here even though I have had my little struggles here and there, and I miss my family like crazy I just feel way way happier about my life right at this moment. In USA after graduating college I was feeling quite numbed and now I feel alive again, I feel like blood actually runs through my veins and that is what life is about for me. To feel alive at all times because it is not enough to breathe everyday you got to feel it in your veins.

But enough with the lecture, I will talk through pictures now as I have tons LITERALLY tons!

Over 1 Month…

Blog is been so sooo long… I have to say it has been a mixture of procrastination, lots of things going on, and of course me judging myself extra hard on whatever I put on the blog which makes it harder to just whip up something quickly and hitting the “Publish” button…

But anywho here is a bit of what has been going on:

I quit my job! – It was planned, I didn’t just go Bananas and quit, I had been saving some money just so I could quit, travel a bit, and just simply enjoy myself for a little bit.

One of my Best Friends, Katinka came to visit me from Germany!!! We spend 2 weeks together! I’m so happy she came, and I am so thankful to have a best friend like Katinka in my life! I can’t wait to see her again soon hopefully!!! And at some point I will write a bit about what we did in our 2 weeks of vaca!

After Katinka left, I decided to finally make my way to my country Dominican Republic!!! God, I am so Thankful for my little time in my country! More on that coming next…

Lastly, my little cousin’s graduation from College!!! Gosh I am so PROUD of her!!!! Caro, is more than a little sister to me, I gladly give my life for her without even thinking it, I got so much love for my little rat and to see her graduate from college is just unbelievable! Beyond happy for her accomplishments!!!

It’s been over 1 month, can’t believe how fast time has pass!

The Highlight of the Over 1 Month Hiatus!

Quotes from Roberto Shinyashiki.

*I like to take little walks during my lunch break and today I made it my mission to cheer me up by capturing some pictures of nature specially as just last week all trees were completely bare, now look at the magic that has bloomed! Great way to recharge the batteries is to take a little walk whenever possible, it does wonders for the mind.

Comfy Working Outfits

tumblr_n4pe9pRLBM1sp26bho1_1280

When I first started working in an office/extra professional environment I struggled to dress comfortable because I will usually wear button up shirts and blazers, while you will look sharp wearing those things for me it just didn’t seem to work because I was feeling uncomfortable and stiff all the time. So gradually I just started to switch up my button ups for cardigans and comfy sweaters, I still look nice and sharp without sacrificing my comfort.

This is for anyone who is struggling on what is appropriate to wear to a more professional work environment.
My favorite dressy pants are from American Eagle and Walmart so don’t think you have to sacrifice your wallet to look nice at work either. It can be done gradually by shopping for 1 or a few items at a time and then of course just rotate your outfits, there is no need to have tons of clothes to look nice. Most of my cardigans I bought for under $20 so again be creative and look around! Also I’m usually freezing at work all the time so I always bring a large scarf, my favorite right now is a scarf from Zara Men section.
Hope this helps anyone who is looking for what to wear to work! Feel Free to ask me anything if you are interested in more info!
*In case you are wondering, I use a website called Polyvore to make the little style collages like the one in this post and the other Travel Post I did before.
Have a lovely Monday Friends!
Kisses, Dani :)
