It's always time for tea

Tea Time Topic: Anxiety

Go make yourself a cup of your favourite hot brew and sit back while I chat away. In this video I’m going to open up and tell you about my lifelong experience with anxiety, how it manifests for me, what I do to deal with it… And I’m answering some of the questions you guys sent me through Instagram. Enjoy and please feel free to leave a comment if you need to get something off your chest!

Saying Yes

A few days after new year’s, after I’d published all my “resolutions and goals” posts, I made one more new year’s resolution. The biggest one of all, in hindsight. The most life-changing one, in any case. I decided to stop saying no and start saying yes.

I always come across these posts about learning to stand up for yourself and saying no. Well, me being the anxious pessimist I am, I’m very, very good at saying no. I’d say I’m somewhat of an expert. When something scares me, feels like it’ll take too much time, involves meeting new people, doesn’t feel right, or is simply too new, my first reaction will be “no”. Always has been.

Headed To Austria | Loepsie’s Life

Hello my lovely readers, wishing you a happy Monday all the way from sunny & snowy Austria! This past week has been all about finishing everything up before I leave on my 10-day skiing vacation. Let’s take a look at all the photos on my phone from last week!

I ordered this adorable phone case online to take with me on vacation. I don’t like to carry my whole wallet full of loyalty & membership cards with me that are useless abroad, so I decided to get myself one of those phone cases that have slots for a few cards. This way my phone will be protected when I bring it on the slopes, and I’ll have somewhere to put my important cards. Win-win! Plus, I think it looks really cute. And it was super inexpensive.

My Fjällräven Re-Kånken Backpack

A few weeks back, I saw a blogpost by a Dutch blogger showcasing her new backpack. The second I saw it, I fell in love. I’d been on the lookout for a new backpack for a while and this one had everything I was looking for. It was elegant, simple, the perfect size and shape, and environmentally friendly. It was the Fjällräven Re-Kånken. Lucky for me this was just a few weeks before my birthday, and my parents were sweet enough to gift it to me as a birthday present. Meet my new backpack!
