Little Affairs #07

Bye September and hello October ! The weather in Riga coddles us with warm days most of time and gives a bit of spring syndrome - when I just want to go out and feel the sun and wind and walk around, only this time instead of stepping on fresh, green grass, I wish to run among colourful autumn leaves. This week went on working note mostly but little things are the ones that give a real taste to our mood and perception of life - a talk with a friend after long day, new song on a playlist or just a piece of favourite dark chocolate.

This week was all about :

October brought colours and started "Golden Fall". All shades of red and yellow surround us wherever we go and just make me wanna smile to the beauty of nature !

Last Bits of Paris Fashion Week - my favourite of all fashion month. Paris has its charm and it is seen in fashion too. So excited to see what local designers will bring for Riga Fashion Week in the end of October !

Work, work, work and even more of it. Even when you are doing what you like, body and mind has its limits and overworking never gets to better results ! Still learning how to balance work and relaxation.

Healthy choices even in evenings, even being tired and even on the go. Bye-bye old me, craving buns after an exhausting workday. Walking by bakery section in fast pace right to a salad bar ! Green leaves, chicken and olive oil - keeping it simple and healthy ! Yesterday I also tried the water enriched with vitamins and minerals which really powered me up !

The Power of Now emphasises how crucial is living in present, concentrating on current moment and leaving past and future where they should be. My challenge is to stop checking Instagram every half hour and immediately responding to all FB messages as this is more disturbing than helpful. No multitasking and multithinking (and multi-tabbing !! I will wait those 2 seconds while page is loading !!). Concentrating on one task, getting it done and moving to next one. I will work like this. Calm mind is happy mind.

Sweet Surprise from Stranger - amazingly delicious tartlet with raspberries and white chocolate. Unknown girl, if you need to borrow something once again, I am here for you ! Thank you for sweetening my weekend :) 

Bailando - every morning the song pops on radio (and it does every morning !), I jump up and start dancing, even in middle of breakfast. Little extra morning cardio, huh ? 

Have a happy Sunday, dear Friends ! Enjoy autumn and see you next week (spoiler alert : beauty posts coming !) !
