We all love to kick ass at school or work, burst with energy, creativity and spread good vibes wherever we go, but in all honesty, none of us can go full in without taking a break and leave it all behind sometimes. The world needs to wait and we need to take time for ourselves because we won’t go a long way without it. I always have this itch to get out and wander, I like to keep my free days active – but there are days when I just need to have a day in on my own. A day or a few hours just for myself when I shut the mess in my head – because in the end of the day, it’s all about the simplest things which can change our mood for the better. Here are a few of my tips on how to unwind, de-stress and have the much-needed you-time.
Fascinating, arty and influential. That’s what fashion is to me. I love fashion. I love the process of creating clothes, the art and ideas of minds behind it. As Eva Kruse, the founder of the Sustainable Fashion Summit said: “It makes us love, desire, excite, reject and change. Over and over again.” It’s with us every day and forms a huge, inseparable part of our every day lives. Daily, we wear clothes. They have impact not only on us, how we feel in them or what statement we make, but also on our planet. This impact defines the future of fashion.
That’s why sustainability and fashion are two words which must go together. It’s also the reason why they were discussed earlier this month at the world’s largest event on ethics in this industry in Copenhagen. When I heard of it, I knew I can’t miss it.
I feel like these days are kind of chilled. Not like I’m not busy or anything like that (the opposite, help help!), but since the sun came to Odense, the city where I live and study in Denmark, its vibe has changed. Anyways, every now and then I will do posts called “days like this” where I will share my daily life, new places I discovered in town and thoughts I have in mind.
To give you a picture – Odense is a pretty small town (third largest in Denmark though) and a home to Hans Christian Andersen, the world’s famous author of children’s fairytales (The Ugly Duckling, The Snow Queen or The Girl with the Matches, to name a few). It is a cozy town where life goes slowly. At least this is how I feel after I got back here from China. It is also biking town – I think I even read somewhere it’s one of the best cities in Denmark for bikers.
