Self-Love Photo-A-Day [Results]

reading time: ca. 1 min

The only real failure is the failure to try, and the measure of success is how we cope with the disappointment, as we all must. ~ The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Hello love,
so the month has gone by, and the self love photo a day challenge created by Joanna Soh is over. It's time to show my results... here we go:

1. Selfie
Taken February 9.

2. Relax
Watching some episodes of Avatar: The Legend of Korra. i love watching animation. So relaxing. Although Korra isn't even half as good as my all-time favourite Avatar: The Last Airbender, but oh well... this shows us once again that we should never compare ourselves or anything else with anything or anyone...

3. Motivation
Summer 2013, the best summer so far. My greatest motivation is the feeling of summery lightness, jumping around, running effortlessly, wearing flowy printed dresses instead of chunky coats and boots, and just feeling comfortable in my skin.

4. Body
Outfit of the day: Navy & Stripes.

5. Breakfast
Fresh orange juice and a bowl of raw vegan porridge: mashed ripe bananas, tigernut flour & chopped apples.
