Even though it’s the beginning of March, life feels like spring. The sun is out, and everything seems to be falling into place. Patience is a skill I learned in my early twenties, beginning my anorexia recovery. Before I always used to be very impulsive, wanting things done right away or not at all, but that changed.
''And don't spend your time lookin' around
For something you want that can't be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin' about it
I'll tell you something true
The bare necessities of life will come to you''
This is my favorite verse from the song 'Bare necessities' from The Jungle Book (1994). Watch some old Disney cartoons this weekend guys. It'll do you good (: Here are some of my favorites:
The Jungle Book (1994)
Sleeping Beauty (1959)
The Aristocats (1970)
The Lion King (1994)
My weekend is definitely filled with sunny days strolling thorugh the city & cozy evenings watching movies. If anything, these animated films have taught me to enjoy life, and stop taking everything so seriously.
The bare necessities of life will come to you.
This February marked 4 years of ninastanic.com, and I haven’t even managed to make a ‘happy birthday’ post! I am so happy and proud I’m keeping my blog alive. But I am also just a tiny bit sad, because I don’t manage to write & create more posts! The past year has been crazy, but I really feel I want to truly make something out of ninastanic.com now. I feel inspired by all the posts I’ve created in the past, seeing how much I’ve grown as a person (and as a blogger).
Getting married, starting my own business, growing my pilates practice, studying TA, attending more and more seminars and courses to expand more knowledge, buying a new car, publishing a book, and so on and so fourth – that’s what has been keeping me busy in the past year.
I feel energized and motivated to continue at this pace, adding more blogging & vlogging. I think my life is pretty interesting, and I thought why not share more of it with you?
So this year I started off creating a lot of YT vidoes, and I’m enjoying that so much. Now all I have to do is add more blog posts about stuff I love! Being able to slowly form a community of super cool people brings me so much joy. I am not here to show you who you need to be (like), I am here to show you to be yourself, and yourself only. Let’s continue to keep it real in 2019!
WHAT BLOGGING FOR ROUR YEARS HAS TAUGHT ME:
So happy birthday ninastanic.com, and thank you for all the love!
Hey my darlings!
So the beginning of 2019 has been super intense for me! I am sticking to my resolution (and am loving it, by the way – I’ll tell you more later). In the first two weeks I was sick, both Žiga and I caught the flu. But still, we tried to work as much as possible! I am super sad I didn’t get to film any YT videos though.. I think we just need to get used to this new crazy tempo :D
This year I have so many goals. But for now, I can tell you that I applied for a nutritionist license education! I am so happy to expand my knowledge regarding fitness & health. Soon I will be offering a new service, and that is online pilates wellness coaching, which will include a individual training program & meal plan! There won’t be any issues regarding when and where to exercise – YOU DECIDE! We will be able to track your progress online, precisely calculate your achievements and predict your future ones. Together we will set your goals & milestones, and find the fastest and most effective way to achieve them. WE’LL BE KILLING IT IN 2019!
In the other half of the year I plan on expanding my movement knowledge even further, applying for a personal fitness trainer education, so we can also hit the gym together & kill it there! In the meantime I am studying transactional analysis, and focusing on growing as a future therapist. I’m literally so exited to see where life takes me!
So. Now to the NY resolution update.
26 days of no sugar has brought me so much joy. I feel so good, and so much more creative! As if sugar was holding me back in literally every aspect of my life. I’ve had no real cravings so far, and I don’t expect them anytime soon. Right now I’m just enjoying life as it is, hitting the gym a lot, and teaching my pilates classes.
I’ve found quite some cool food swaps (I’ll tell you all about that in a separate post in the upcoming week), and now I think I’m slowly starting to see results on my body. It’s too early to say anything (oh my god, I am writing this post on my couch with my cat sitting beside me & she just farted and I almost fainted because of it lol idk why I told you this), anyway – it’s too early to say anything, but I really feel quitting sugar was one of the best choices I made in my life. I hope I can tell you more soon! (:
So to wrap it up: joy and happiness are coming my way. I’ll make sure to send some to you, too! We’re taking a lot of mini trips lately, and yesterday we were at Rakitna. We witnessed probably the most beautiful light I ever saw, we just caught the golden hour! Of course I asked Žiga to take some photos, & I edited them with my presets (SHOP VIA INSTAGRAM DM).
Talk soon guys, stay cool!
Hey my darlings!
Today we woke up early, hopped in the car, and drove to the frozen lake Jasna. What a magical morning! Žiga had to film something, and asked him to take a few photos of me so I could show you how my presets look like on some more photos. You can see the before / after photos on my Instagram highlight 'Presets'.
In case you missed it:
I created two presets for you! They're called Matcha and Aqua Latte, and you can order them via my Instagram DM (pack price: 10eur).
So this morning was super fun, but now we both have work to do. And I also have to stop by the post office, not only to ship your Tsuki and book orders, but also to pay a fine I got for speedng last week :D Nothing serious, I was driving on a straight road on a Sunday (no schools or houses around), and I drove 60 instead on 50km/h. It was my mistake, but guys come on, go terrorize people who actually commit crimes or serious driving 'mistakes'.
Anyway, I learned my lession :D
Stay cool guys, talk soon!
Today we visited Bled in the morning. We hopped in the car immediately after the washing mashine mechanic guy left (yes, our washing mashine broke down last week!). The guy that came to fix it was super nice, and he worked very fast. Fast enough we could go to Bled! I was so excited, because I really needed a couple hours of 'us time'.
When we arrived we soon realized the both of us were not dressed properly. Not even close. It was -6, I really don't know what we were thinking haha! Anyway, we still decided to take a walk around the lake and snap a few photos. Even though it was so beautiful it might not have been the best idea, because we were both way to cold! Fingers crossed pneumonia doesn't say hi!
When we (finally) escaped the cold (don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed the walk, it just felt like walking the arctic circle naked), we decided to get pizza for lunch. Best. Idea. Ever.
On our way back we stopped at a tattoo studio, but I'll tell you more about that soon (yes, you're probably thinking the right thing). Now we're at home doing all the work we should have done in the morning. Deadlines don't scare us.
The oldest pair of shoes & jeans (I don't even remember where I got them), a Levi's belt, a ZARA coat, a Massimo Dutti blazer, a Intimissimi turtleneck, Marjeta Grošelj bag, Dior sunnies, and a GAP scarf.
