Not an ordinary morning coffee 💛
I was okay waking up at 6 to enjoy mornings like this one. If you are really passionate about something and happy about your life, you won’t hate Mondays, you won’t hate waking up early. And that is something I have to work on. To be this happy and energetic when I am at home and when it is raining, when it’s grey outside. Life is pretty amazing. And the right mindset makes all the difference. 💛
Who wouldn't want views like this? Is backpacking in California on your bucket list? 🌎😎
It blew my mind when I realized that every lake we visited (which was several!) in Banff was stunning beyond belief. It left me questioning how on earth it’s possible that every single spot here is picture perfect?! Visiting Banff is a must! So tell me...where have YOU traveled to that you constantly found yourself in awe of and you’ve confidently recommended it to others?

It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year 😇
As much as I love my summer, I will always have a special place in my heart for Christmas. And it is SO close 😄 This week my country Latvia will be celebrating it’s 100 years! 🇱🇻And then - let the Christmas countdown begin haha 🎄
The literal meaning of come rain, or come shine!🌧☔️
After all ,a little rain (or a huge storm in this case) never killed no body... or maybe it did.. hmm ok, let’s rephrase ... it didn’t stop us from enjoying Bich Dong Temple
Do you stay indoors, and relax when it’s rainy? Or are you a come rain, or come shine adventurer?
I was so happy we didn’t let rain stop us from visiting this temple. To put it in Victoria’s words, the inside of this place looked like Jurassic Park!
We couldn’t have asked for a better good bye to Ninh Binh, the rain highlighted the beauty of the nature around us, and the calming sound of the raindrops made this place feel like something out of this world. Truly an experience I will always keep in my heart

Hola gente linda! Díganme ustedes se quedan adentro, disfrutando de una película y comida, o salen a buscar aventuras ya sea sol o lluvia?
Uno de los templos más hermosos que visitamos en Vietnam fue casualmente ese, llovía torrencialmente pero no dejamos que la lluvia nos espante. Dijimos vamos, y así fue! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Al llegar al templo quedamos con la boca abierta de la belleza alrededor nuestro, la lluvia hacía que el lugar se vea aún más hermoso, y el sonido de las gotas al caer nos hizo sentir como si estuviésemos afuera de este mundo. Increíble es poco!! Definitivamente una aventura que llevaré en mi corazón siempre ❤️

Дорогие мои, а давайте иногда выпадать из социальной матрицы. Или даже не иногда, а почаще.
Ведь у каждого свои собственные #идеалы
красоты, свои правила жизни и даже собственное течение времени.
Бывает просто необходимо остановиться, перестать вечно куда-то спешить, меньше думать, больше чувствовать и, наконец, послушать себя… Услышать своё тело, чувства, а там и свою душу...
Понять, что она – штучный товар. Да и вообще не товар… И здесь можно, что угодно: СВОИ каноны, свои радости и, конечно же, своё личное #время
А всё, что приносит радость - имеет право на вход без очереди.😉

Wandering the streets of Hanoi 🌎where has backpacking taken you this year? 📸 @mila2501
It’s hard not to get inspired living in a city that gives you every day gems like this 😍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But how do you turn inspiration into action? That’s something I’ve always struggled with! 😭 So I’m reaching out to you guys for some help because I’ve got a lot of ideas I’d like to turn into reality but, alas, where do I start?
Kathe Wohlfahrt shop is a mandatory stop for all the Christmas lovers.
The one in Rothenburg is huge and will leave you speechless.
I'm so excited for the Christmas markets and I can't wait especially for the ones in Heidelberg🎄
High on life. High in this city. 156 metres to be exact.
Is there anything better than feeling beautiful inside and out?
Three things that I learned about myself in Tallinn
1. I could happily wander these medieval cobbled streets forever
2. I’m the pinball queen!
3. Who needs google maps when you have @mister_lavin
My dad used to always take pride in telling people that Nicola will never get lost she has such a good sense of direction but I’ve managed to find a boy with an even better one! He navigated those cobbled streets like a pro and found hidden rooftop views like this one for me
What about you? Do you have a good sense of direction or is it google maps all the way?

Love the body you are in!
I used to be very sporty. I swam for my county in the UK and had the opportunity to swim with the olympic team down in Bath with @markfosterswim
a few times.
I am also a black belt in Karate and trained everyday to obtain my black belt. I used to have figure that most girls would dream of.
I gave it all up around 18 years old when I was introduced to alcohol and partying and sport was no longer on my radar.
My body then took an absolute beating. My weight went up and down like a yoyo and has done ever since. I now have stretch marks, cellulite, I am technically classed as over weight and if you looked at me you would never have thought I was sporty at all.
I will admit I hated Karate but if I could turn back time I never would have given up swimming.
For a long time I've hated my body, especially after giving birth to my daughter. I struggle with self confidence all the time. My husband tells me all the time to love the body I am in.
I am not dying, I have all my limbs, i can walk, run and hold my baby. Be grateful! That's what's important!
Love what you have! #maidenheadmarlins #highwycombeswimmingclub
Life was meant for good friends and great adventures.🏖✈🌏
Last year on this day, I walked into my job of 6 years and a few minutes later I walked out unemployed. Nobody wants to get laid off, especially when you have a family to provide for. Unless you’ve been through something similar you can’t begin to understand the grief & trauma that comes from someone else making a life-altering decision for you without your consent. I wasn’t allowed to say goodbye to any of my coworkers or even clean out my desk. Many co-workers never reached out to see how I was and I felt betrayed by a lot of people I thought were friends. I also happen to live next to my old work so seeing my previous workplace became a constant negative reminder of my situation every time I left the house. In the days, weeks, and months that followed I went down a really dark road. ◾️Going from being a full-time working mom to a “stay-at-home” mom was a change I wasn’t prepared for. I wasn’t prepared for how lonely it would be and how much work it really is! 😬 I’ve never really struggled with anxiety or depression but these feelings emerged now as regular emotions that filled my day. ◾️I’m still working through a lot of these feelings but this experience is important for me to share because this is my WHY. This is why I share these bright, colorful things on my Instagram. This experience is the reason I sought them out in the first place. ❤️ Because sometimes life is really dark. Sometimes you feel like you don’t have anything to look forward to and that things will never get better.
These colorful walls represent my desire to find the positive things in life. I’ve learned this past year that some parts of your life will require you to actively seek out happiness, and that you should seek out and create happy moments with all the energy you have! There are ALWAYS colorful things in life if we choose to look for them. ❤️💙💛💚💜🧡💗

• and some days all the motivation is just there
Good morning world - and I’m up bright and early (for a change) and off to the gym. You thought I was going to say I’m off to have cake 🍰 didn’t you?! 😜 No no, I really am off to the gym 😬 ~
So in order to keep myself motivated this morning and give you some too (even if it isn’t morning where you are - maybe it will help you kickstart your morning once you’re up) - here’s a quote that will make you fly out of bed ~
1. “Either you run the day or the day runs you” ~
And okaaay I’m a sucker for quotes - so here’s one more just in case ~
2. “The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do”
Which one do you find more motivating? 1 or 2? • 💖💖💖

On this rainy day I’m going through my Bali photos, and, ohhh how much I miss this magical island. It feels like only yesterday I was chasing waterfalls, sunsets, breathing in the wild jungle air. It was a dream of mine to see the beauty of Bali with my own eyes. And I am so glad it came true. I want to go back. So much. ❤️
Just look at Tallinn all lit up like a Christmas tree. I could happily wander these cobble stone streets forever! I have found my happy place.
Hands up if you want to visit Estonia now ✋
Thank you @visitestonia
for inviting me to this magical place! Heads up I’m never leaving! And thank you @mister_lavin
for capturing this wonderful candid shot with your @huaweimobile
you don’t need expensive cameras to go out there and start taking great pictures guys.

Happy bath day 🦆🛁💕
My brother buys me lush pretty much every occasion and I LOVE it! 😍
We both read this as ‘birthday’, it was only when my brothers girlfriend said, oh it says bath day that we realised. Even the happy bath day banner smells of lush scents which is incredible 🙌🏼 Some bits in here I’d never tried before too, so I’m excited. Part of me hates using them though, because when they’re gone I’m sad 😂
People take different roads seeking fulfilment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost.
If I've learnt anything this year, everyone has there own blueprint in life .Respect their choices, because that's their life and not yours.
Just forcus on you and good things will come your way.💭💚🌴
Better to see something once, than hear about it a thousand times.💫🍃👌
