You’ve probably heard a million times how important self love really is. And I think it’s more than just a new cheesy trend. The phrase ”Love yourself first” is so much more than just an Instagram caption, a quote, written in a nice font. It’s the most important step you have to take on your path to a fulfilling life and it’s both easy and hard to achieve. But when you do, there’s no more settling for something or someone. There’s a lot of working on yourself, finding out what makes you happy and what doesn’t, what makes you productive and what makes you feel lazy. You start reaching for you dreams, regardless of other’s expectations and you are surround yourself by people, who will encourage you, help you, believe in you. There’s no more thinking about how you should look. Instead of that, you focus on how you want to look – inside and outside, and you don’t care about the ideals in magazines and social media. You see yourself as a whole.
The path to self love is the one that never ends. You might have some wrong turns, some steps backs, some stops. Just keep going :).

There are places that look magical even on a cold, cloudy winter day, such as Zelenci. That perfect emerald green colour charms everyone, regardless of the weather and is taking over Instagram :). You don’t have to walk far to get to them – it depends on the parking spot, so the walk can take 10-15 minutes or 1 hour. It’s a place to see, where you can enjoy in the beautiful sights and relax. It’s a place you have to visit, if you are near Kranjska Gora, and you won’t spend the whole day walking there, so you’ll have plenty of time to visit other sights nearby (such as Lake Jasna) and possibly risk seeing TOO MANY beautiful places in one day. It may sound cheesy, but Zelenci and so many sights nearby are a true winter wonderland. Even though I can’t wait for spring and warmer temperatures, I just love sights like this.

Chocolate soufflé – the one dessert I always wanted to try out, but heard so many times how hard it is to bake it. I didn’t want to fail and end up spending one hour to clean the oven :D. Well, I made the notorious chocolate soufflé for the third time yesterday. I’m definitely not a soufflé professional, but now I have a simple recipe. Yes, I failed once, when I was trying to get the perfect amount of ingredients for two or a small group of friends 😀 But now, I have a simple recipe, inspired by the one on this page (and probably many other recipes I found while searching for the easiest one:)). My version is for 2-3 people (or just for one, depending on how hungry you are:)). And it’s really simple, no special ingredients, the hardest part is separating egg whites and yolks :). All you need is:
75g of dark chocolate
50g of butter
50g of caster sugar
40g of flour

One more post full of beautiful photos by Hristina Trajkoska. This time, I’m wearing my ballet shoes, so it won’t be a classical outfit post, but more of a ”thank you” post, dedicated to all those years of dancing. I’ve never really been good at most of the sports – I liked them, I just wasn’t s good as I wanted to be…I was never the athletic type I guess:). With dancing, it was so different – I loved it, I understood it, I was also quite good at it. So it was a sport that’s stayed me through all the years, it’s been the escape during the exams, it’s been the thing that makes a bad day good. My relationship to sports changed in the last years, as there was no pressure – I didn’t worry about the bad grade at volleyball, I didn’t feel pressured to run a kilometer in a few minutes. I just started doing the things I liked and I found out why was dancing so important to me – I never felt the pressure, I just did it. When I started, there were no grades, and when the time for the competitions and performances came, I didn’t care. I loved it. There were some nervous feelings, but they couldn’t stop me from doing what I love. I haven’t thought of dancing professionally since I was ten, but it’s more than a hobby. It’s just who I am.

Since it’s Valentine’s day tomorrow, I decided to design a simple Valentine’s day card with a cute quote you can give to anyone you love – your boyfriend/girlfriend, best friends, family… A cute last minute gift :). You can download it here for free, as a small thank you for all the love, nice comments, everything that motivates me to keep writing and sharing my thoughts with you 🙂

Even a cold grey day can be magical, with a help of great photographer, photogenic animals and a botanic garden. I wanted to do some photos with this sweater for a while, it’s probably one of my favourite ones. Once again, the second hand sweaters seem to fit me the best :).

For a person, who has performed on stage many times in her life, I often feel nervous before stepping on the stage. Like really nervous, even though I have a background in dancing. The biggest problem for me is talking – even when I have a presentation at college in front of 5 people, I feel more nervous than when I dance in front of a full theater. I think that’s because I’m not used to situations like that and I become really aware of my voice in that moment (which sometimes leads to a shaky voice and too much concentration on the structure of the sentences, which were perfectly fine in the beginning:)). New situations also make me feel nervous. At the beginning of the year, I had my first solo performance in Mademoiselle pole dance studio, and even though the show was opened only for the dancers and almost all of us were performing in groups that night, I hadn’t felt so nervous in a while. But on the other hand, it was something I wanted to do ever since I started pole dancing, and it the end, it didn’t turned out the way I wanted to, but it still turned out good and I got a lot of compliments…so all in all, I was happy I decided to perform and will do more of similar things in the future:).
I decided to write about the stage fright and that nervous feeling because I’ve been stepping out of my comfort zone a lot lately. Life doesn’t last forever and there’s so much things I want to experience…so I faced my nervous side with a question: What’s the worse that could happen?
