Wearing sweater vest from Zara, vintage skirt, old long-sleeved top, ASOS wedges and scarf from Hong Kong.

I’m really liking the nude lipstick look. That, and red lipstick. The skirt used to be my mother’s, and when she wore it, it hit a respectable place just above her knee. For me, it’s a mini-skirt. I am ecstatic I fit it at all, actually; half a year a go, I couldn’t fit it, but I lost some weight around my tummy.

I don’t have a lot of rules when it comes to eating, but I try my best not to eat processed foods. Instead of potato chips or cookies, I’ll eat lightly salted mixed nuts for snacks. Instead of instant coffee, I’m brewing my own and making flat whites out of trim milk (got a coffee maker just for that). Instead of…say, soft drink, I go for tea. I try to eat all the essential food groups each day (green leafy vegetables, fruit, carbohydrates, proteins and, if possible, monosaturated fats in the form of avocados or nuts) and I never eat until I’m so full that I feel sick. I also do fifteen minutes of exercise per day, mostly in the form of dancing–which involves cardio and balance. It’s actually not a lot of effort, and I allow mysel to eat junk food in an acceptable amount. I hardly ever eat it these days anyway; I wouldn’t touch Cadbury’s because I’ve spoiled myself on Belgian chocolates and since those are so expensive, I don’t eat too many of them either.
