I was disappointed when I got to this beautiful location I had always dreamed of strolling about and grabbing a photo at. I had no idea that it was actually a busy spot. In my head I had imagined it to be a vast garden where you couldn't see anyone for ages (like New Zealand 😂) so when I got there and learned there was a recent ban on taking photos, I respected it and carried on driving through as requested. On my second visit, the main gates were closed and there was a local high school relay team practising for an upcoming competition. Because it was safe and we were allowed to walk through the pedestrian bit as it was after hours, and the team was just there running about, I got this snap. Of me, joining the local Hawaiian high school relay team 😂 Can confirm I am a good addition as all kiwis are experts at running in jandals - facts. 🤙
“At first, I was nervous to tell people my dreams... what would they think? But once I let that go, then everything started happening. My life started happening.” - Ty Dolla Sign Contrary to this quote, I’ve never been afraid to share & most importantly act on my dreams because I’ve been fortunate to have the support of friends & family. However, that’s not the case for everyone. Following a dream is challenging, & even more when surrounded by skeptics. Know this, others will never be as invested in your dreams as you are, so skip the attempts to explain/reason & save that energy for the work it will take to succeed.
This season I choose acceptance and joy over perfection, this allows me to focus in what really matters and enjoy it even more. Let yourself shine and enjoy this season your way!✨🌟😘 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wearing @camilacoelhocollection dress by @revolve ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #revolvearoundtheworld#revolveme#revolveambassador#revolvesocialclub

We’re back at the @ottawa.xmas.market this weekend at the @yourottawalifestyle x @makerhouseco booth! We’ve had an absolute blast at the market from the festive atmosphere and smiles as people stroll along browsing vendors, lights and enjoy some hot drinks! Here’s some FAQs we’ve been asked: Why did you start Ottawa Lifestyle? It’s no secret I am so proud of this city from what I post on @littlemissottawa and I wanted to create gear we could celebrate the city with. I never saw any ‘OTTAWA’ toques on the Rideau Canal, and for a city that does such a great job celebrating winter, I thought this would be the perfect way to start. As soon as I saw the copper-coloured water bottles I knew I had to add them to the line-up. They’ll keep your drink hot or cold for up to 24 hours, perfect for any adventure. Why didn’t you make it Little Miss Ottawa apparel? I want Ottawa Lifestyle to speak of our unique city and something we can all celebrate and be a part of. We collectively make Ottawa what it is ✨ Where can you buy Ottawa Lifestyle? ❄️Online at yourottawalifestyle.com ❄️ Ottawa Christmas Market ❄️ @jimkeayford1 parts department *save on shopping for the second two Why Maker House & Ottawa Lifestyle? It was a match made in heaven! As soon as we met Maker House, everything aligned so quickly for a booth at the Christmas Market! Our love of Ottawa is strong and we couldn’t imagine a better partner for the booth! Maker House celebrates Canadian Makers and carries some incredible items! How long have you been around? I’ve been blogging as @littlemissottawa for over 5 years but Ottawa Lifestyle was launched 2 months ago. I had the idea for years but it took a long time to source high quality materials. We want to make sure they last for your adventure. They’re also printed in Canada. Is your toque warm? Sure is 🙌 tested to beat our Canadian winters!
Don't worry, be happy. ✨ Na het vertrek van @riannevanberkum ben ik gebleven in Hoi An, heb ik een fiets gehuurd en ben ik gaan fietsen. Het zat niet mee, want het was continue aan het regenen (poncho vergeten), mijn fiets viel bovenop mij, de fiets liep daardoor aan en heb mij op het strand laten verleiden om een armbandje te kopen voor 5 euro, die ik overigens alweer kwijt ben. Daarnaast ben ik van een private room, naar een shared dorm verhuisd en slaap ik met twee ontzettend aardige Duitse meiden van 18 jaar. Tot slot ben ik gezellig een drankje gaan drinken met een super leuk stel uit Nederland, die we ontmoet hebben in Sapa. Toch merk ik aan alles dat ik eigenlijk gewoon alleen wil zijn en dat ik al overprikkeld raak als er iemand tegen mij praat, maar aan de andere kant voel ik de druk om te socializen en om out of my comfort zone te treden, omdat alleen zijn ook zo alleen is en het toch best gezellig is. // #adventuresbyvangeel#issuesbyvangeel

“There’s an art to the balance of building up to an experience and jumping into it head first.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I wrote this in my notes while traveling through Asia. Reading it back more than a year later, it hits on an obstacle I’ve noticed often in others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Both are a way of creating impact and action in your life... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But for some, it can be terrifying/intimidating/impossible to jump right into the deep end. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let me just start off by saying...the great things about solo traveling is it’s exactly whatever you want it to be: fast, slow, cultural, adventurous, domestic, abroad...it’s all up to you. And if you want to build up rather than jumping right in, then that’s what you should do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No matter what you choose, the key to solo traveling (and really everything in life) boils down to one main thing... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ACTION! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Big, medium, small. Doesn’t matter. Just as long as there is action. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✅ Save this post for later ✅ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Use these limiting belief transformations to unstick yourself the next time you have trouble creating action: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨ It’s too overwhelming to _________ —> How can I break _________ down into baby steps? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨ I can’t _________ because I’m not ready enough —> what is the smallest action I can do towards _________ to make myself feel more prepared? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨ I don’t know how to _________ —> I don’t know how to _________ YET, but what can I learn now in order to do it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Still unsure exactly how to create action in your life towards solo travel? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Click 🔗link in bio🔗 for a free 20 minute call with me where we’ll discuss how to get you there and leave you wanting to
