Lifestyle | How I Spend My Lazy Summer Days.

Oh, lazy summer days I waited for you with yearn. Since you came I want to spend my summertime with joy and laziness, hello life! You can imagine my feeling when you finish your college semester, or you go to your well-deserved holiday after months of hard work. My pre vacay days (Morocco here I come!) started and I want to share with you Loves how I spend my lazy summer days.

The most important thing I do is adjusting my night’s rest. During my studies I sleep sometimes just for three or four hours for days. Especially the days when I’m busy writing reports and learn for my exams. Those days are horrible, because at the end I’m feeling it in body and mind. I’ll be less energetic and cranky during my day. So, I’m trying to get at least six to eight hours sleep during my pre vacay days. When I wake up I feel so rested that I feel truly flourished and I will enjoy my day.

My semester is over so, I have more time to read other things than my study books. I like to read true crime stories like Judas from Astrid Holleeder or short poems/stories like Milk & Honey from Rupi Kaur. Either I want to wander in a true story, a short one where I can catch some feelings or flip senseless trough magazines.

What I also do is pampering myself. It can be easy as doing my makeup, fixing my hair or take a hot shower and moisture my body with a moisturizing body lotion. These simple things are to me like a quick confident boost, I feel self-confidence and energetic and ready to rock my day.

Obviously, Netflix belongs into my lazy summer days. Watching episodes, a whole season and feeling empty when I’m finished it, is just rooted in my daily work. I confess: Netflix is like a drug. I get easily hooked when I show is so good!

What are your summer lazy day moments Loves?

Fashion | Let’s Go To The Beach!

During summer I feel that the sky is the limit. I feel more energetic, confident and my skin glows. The weather is getting hotter, I’m getting active and love is in the air. I wish I could have summer all year around! Summer wouldn’t be summer if you plan at least one trip to the beach to enjoy your leisure. So, dream with me about going to the beach Loves!

I’m going to the beach and I’m taking with me without a doubt a good fitting swimwear. My tankini did his job, I’m in love! Of course, it should be blue it’s my favourite colour and I like the combination of a tank top with a bikini slip a lot. It adds flair onto your beach day outfit when you wrap a scarf around your hips. The tank top fits perfectly on my pear-shaped body and the bikini slip fits just right on my bum. Hunkemöller is such a paradise when it comes to swimwear, with their diversity of it you’ll find your dream piece. Super model Doutzen Kroes launched her swimwear collection and they are stunning. Don’t even let me write about the accessories they have: heaven!

Sun equals fun and sunscreen, it is so important to use a SPF protection. Sunburn is the downside of a beach day. So, don’t let it ruin your day! When the day comes to an end you feel like you don’t want to go home and you’re in need of a quick refreshment, is a water bottle spray a true holy grail. Perfect for those stuffy nights. Beach day equals also less is more, no makeup because of the natural glow you’ll getting, flip flops and sunglasses to enjoy nature (read: checking out sun kissed six packs).

Share with me your perfect beach day Loves!

Lifestyle | My Goals For 2016.

IMG_3036

Goals: wishes that everyone wants to become true, you just have to work hard for it.

To be honest Loves, making goals gives me a feeling of pressure. I question myself if I could make it and if I don’t I’ll feel that I have failed. This is the reason why I rather live by the day. As I’m getting older I have learned that if you want something you have to work hard for it so I have to bite the bullet.

When you want to set goals for yourself you have to aim for what is possible for you to handle otherwise you will fail. This is something that I have to keep in the back of my mind; be realistic.

Let me start first with my blog goals.

1) Write more on saidachahid.com.

It has to be said. I have to make time for my blog to enjoy more of it. Sometimes I feel that I get sloppy. This is crazy because I love to write! I’m going to work forward on my blogposts to publish them more on my blog.

2) Collaborate with others and companies.

2015 was a good year when it comes to collaborations! I loved every bit of it and in 2016 I want to lay my focus more on it. It is an amazing feeling when you get to know new people and brands all over the whole world. Let’s keep this feeling!

3) Go to events.

Interaction is important for bloggers and going to events is a perfect way to build a network. As a blogger I get invited once in a while for events and this is to me the cherries of a pie. So, ‘’let’s get fat!’’

4) Lift up my social media.

I’m very happy with the support I get from my Loves! To give something back I want to interact more on it then I already do. Because why not? It is free!

5) Buy a new camera.

I want to take my blog to a higher level and the same goes with my pictures. The camera I use is perfect for product pictures but lets me quite down when it comes to making pictures for outfits. This has to change so I better start with saving!

Here comes my personal goals and let me warn you Loves; it’s quite cliché.

1) Focus more on my faith and believes.

I’m a Muslim. A proud one. I want to live more by the rules of the holy Quran. 2014 and 2015 was very intense years for me a lot happened and I have to close chapters to forgive. Having resentments makes you feel so sad! It is just not worth my energy. I was mad at people for a long time and now it is time to let it go and move on!

2) My education!

This goal deserves an exclamation mark! I have to work hard for my diploma. Years before my current education I didn’t know what to do nor did I know what I want. It frustrated me so much and because of it lost many opportunities to get a diploma. This has to change; like ASAP! As a wallflower I finally found the education that suits me perfectly! Namely: Media, Information & Communication (MIC). You’ll get trained to be an all-round media professional and as a blogger this is right up my alley!

3) Read more.

When I was younger I devoured books! From romans to biographies to true stories. I used to love to imagine myself in the world of the book characters. Such a great feeling!

4) Enjoy the beauty of life.

I’m an over thinker and sometimes for no reason at all. I have to remind myself to take a moment to breathe and enjoy the simple things of life like a sunset or a wind blow through my hair.

5) Give negativity no chance.

Negative things or people can control my mood. It shouldn’t be. Sometimes it’s better for me to have a ‘’frozen moment’’ and scream LET IT GOOOOO! LET IT GO! It already feels good hihi…Try it!

6) Get healthy.

I have primary lactose intolerance. It is caused by insufficient production of the enzyme lactase. Basically I cannot tolerate products that contain milk/milk sugars. I have to chance my diet which I’m glad it is perfect maintainable! Not only I want work on my nutrition but I want to work out more. Indeed!

7) Get my driver license.

26 years old and I still don’t have it. It is just a shame. No comments.

8) Don’t spend money on rubbish.

Believe it or not I even have a ‘’No buy list”! Crazy right? Do I even need to say more…?

9) Save money.

Read goal five.

10) Make my 2016 goals count.

No words needed.

Lifestyle | A Letter To My Future Husband.

IMG_1738

Dear future husband…

Don’t worry, I’m not going Meghan Trainor on you. In fact I am a very simple girl. But there are some things you need to know about me…

I’m not going to tell you what marriage is about, you probably already know. I know this because when I let you in my life, you already pass this condition.

To make it work between us, let me tell you the simple things that makes me happy…Oh no, I’m not being selfish because when I feel loved by you, I can make you feel loved too.

I don’t need diamonds nor do I need gold, instead of giving me something expensive give me your emotional bond because that has more value. I don’t need to hear the words that makes me happy or you think that satisfy me. Instead of saying; show me. I don’t need grand gestures to make me feel loved. Instead remember the little things that I love and that you love. Like my favourite colour, book, movie, meal and my smile. Remember the smile you gave me because you said something that I only would understand. Remember the smile I gave you because I said something that made you happy or I did something you love. Remember me when you wear your favourite blouse that I ironed for you. Remember me when I remembered you about the appointment you have to attend. Remember me when you are at your work and you eat your lunch I made for you with love. Remember the conversations we are going to have about everything, remember the peaceful silence we are going to have because a glance at each other is more than enough. Remember the things you fell in love with just by looking into my eyes. And I will remember the things I fell in love with just by looking into your eyes.

I truly understand that marriage is not a fairy tale. We all have our flaws and I accept every one you have. It is perfectly fine to have some time alone to clear your mind from daily routines and even your thoughts but please don’t forget to share it with me. Whenever we cannot stand each other, promise me we find a solution or clear it out before we go to bed. Whenever I forgot something remember me. Whenever I did something wrong or said something wrong, instead of being judgemental teach me and I shall learn. Whenever you did something wrong or said something wrong, accept my words about it because I’m not your foe.

I’m not telling you how to be a good man because when I let you in my life I already trust that you are. I am grateful towards your mother for this because she raised you as a one.

These simple things I value; commitment, trust, loyalty, communication, patience, love and most of all faith. I believe when this is good between us, I don’t need to worry about our legacy.

If you can give me this, I promise you I’ll treasure you with all my heart.

With Love,

Your future wife.
