Beautiful Mountains

Happy Thursday!

I decided to stay longer in Austria to spend some more time with my family. Yesterday was the first beautiful and sunny day. It was the perfect time to enjoy the beautiful mountains.

I don’t have any skiing clothes – and no snow gear since I live in LA. So I raided my mom’s closet for today. But I did get inspired to get my own again and I put together a look book for you. Here are some super cute items I am already obsessing over.

Winter is coming to an end and today is the first day of spring. This is a great time to get a steal for the next winter and snow season.

Happy New Year 2019

Happy New Year 2019

I spent the last day in 2018 in Santa Monica at the beach. It was the perfect setting and I just wanted to share this special moment with you. Feeling happy and alive and ready for the new year.

Generally New Year’s resolutions are not my thing. I usually do not wait for a certain date to change something in my life. I work on myself daily. Everything I do is a byproduct of my daily thoughts and habits. My plans evolve on that same daily basis. It is a constant process of development and I doubt it can happen over night by declaring a New Year’s resolution.

But this time is a great opportunity to look at a whole year of development. You can reevaluate some things or chose to develop certain thoughts and directions. If you want to grow, you have to raise your standards. We all have big dreams. But we have to double check if our behaviors and thoughts line up with that big picture in our minds. Otherwise we might have to reevaluate our big plans. And carefully think if we are really ready to do what it takes to get there.

You are a product of your thoughts and your closest environment. To change anything you need to start there…..

I wish you a Happy, Healthy, Mindful and successful New Year. Thank you so much to all of you who follow my blog. I can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store.

Let’s do this!

Cozy for the Holidays

Sweater: ShopBabetteBrown; Coffee Cup: JOCO Cup

Merry Christmas to all of you,

I decided to switch off for the last few days and get cozy for the holidays. It has been a whirlwind of a year. I needed some rest and let my thoughts flow free for a little while. 2018 flew by fast, I got a lot accomplished and also felt I learned a lot about myself.

Next month I am celebrating my first anniversary of my online store ShopBabetteBrown. I loved the journey so far and all I did was taking baby steps… (hey – I figured out how to create a store website…). Most remarkable moment was my first T-Shirt launch last July. Actually I did not get to do the launch. Those T – shirts were gone before I got to it… it was amazing. My most memorable moments were my first excited trips to the post office (that excitement wore off quickly). And definitely all your kind and sweet messages and pictures of you wearing your new items.

With CandiedViolets I am soon celebrating the second anniversary. I fell in love with blogging and writing and all the creativity and photography that goes with it. Most of the pictures I actually take myself. I love fashion and I love putting my little spin on it. Just the process of it inspired me greatly and affected so many aspects of my life. I learned so much in many different ways of doing business. And I am grateful I got to collaborate with some fabulous companies. I am full of ideas and looking forward to 2019.

My biggest love in my life always was and always will be dance. I am so happy about all these fabulous opportunities I got this year. From teaching and running my studio to coaching and choreographing to being a part of some of the top events in the USA. I have so much to be grateful for.

I definitely kicked one bad habit in 2018 – that is fear. It is our biggest procrastinator and spoiler of happiness and success. I consciously worked on myself to focus and channel my thoughts and to take a deep breath and doing it anyway…. Anxiety – I don’t have time for you – I have goals to slay…. 😉

Thank you so much for visiting me here, it really means a lot.
