SHAME ON ME

7:45 AM. The only numbers I saw on my flashing phone while the standard ‘opening’ alarm sound was playing. Very loud I must say. Without a doubt I hit snooze. Shame on me. Is this a example of a calm morning? Surprisingly, it actually was. An hour later I was dressed in my bright red Adidas vest, black Vic’s Secret yoga pants, a white Moncler beanie and my brand new neon Nike’s. A fueled up me was ready for her first run of 2015. The last time I went outside for a run was in the early seasons of 2014. (Again, shame on me.) But I can say that I successfully completed this run and I can not wait for my next one.

And not more than two sunny hours later, I found myself shooting this outfit on a beautiful industry terrain. Is it cliche if I say that I have always been a fan of that “I’m a business woman but I wear sneakers look”? I hope not, because regardless of that I am still going to say it. I never wear such bright colors but I made an exception for these bad boys. While debating over two, both equally beautiful, kicks the brightest ones made the cut.

Next Sunday I will prep myself for another run, and no, this time I won’t fool myself again. No snooze, whatsoever. And by next Sunday I do not mean the first Sunday of 2016. I can’t fool myself again.

OH, MARTIAN

Oh Martian, I think I fell in love with you. If there is one thing that I don’t seem to be able to get enough from, it will be watches. No doubts. This year started of right, I can proudly call myself an official brand ambassador for Martian Watches. A couple of days ago I got my first Notifier Watch in the mail which means that this is the start of my first season working together with a genuinely wonderful team. Not more than a week later I found myself shooting the first look with my watch. With an accessory like this, you have to let it play the star in your outfit.

When I carefully studied the box, I found out that the Notifier connect with your iPhone or Android and with bluetooth turned out, you receive notifications from almost every app. I couldn’t be more excited. This was my first time trying out a Smart Watch, and I can tell you that I’m hooked. Let me warn you that you can expect a ridiculous amount of closeups from me and this watch, this statement also applies for my next look. I did an interview with Martian awhile ago, have you already read it? If not, no worries. I got you. In this article I discuss my style and tech tips and my thoughts on smart watches taking over the future.

MARTIANxCHARESA will be to be continued. (Yes, I indeed got this from Miss Margaret Zhang)

ANGIE, ANGIE

I need my daily dozen of Angelina Jolie and this is where I found myself watching Mr and Mrs.Smith on a Thursday night. I even swore to my mom that I would only buy a magazine if they had Angie on the cover. I jest.
But I was (kind off) serious about the daily dozen part. Have you already watched Jolie’s Humanitarian Award speech? If not, you should. Her spoken words are truly inspiring and moving. I’ve hit the play button numerous of times on that video. Looking up a link for you was a good enough excuse for me to watch that four minute video full of captivating words again. If you have any spare time left, click here and let Angelina’s words inspire you.

The part that I admire the most is when she says “I have never understood why some people are lucky enough to be born with the chance that I had to have this path in life. And why across the world, there is a woman just like me, with the same abilities, and the same desires, same work ethic and love for her family, who would most likely make better films and better speeches, only she sits in a refugee camp.” Her mother told her once, “Nothing would mean anything if I didn’t live a life of use to others.” Angelina adds “I will do as my mother asked, and I will do the best I can with this life, to be of use.”

Angelina knows privilege and can acknowledge that not everyone is as fortunate as she and others are. I agree with everything she says, life can be very unfair. If you have a roof above your head, food in your kitchen cabinet, clothes on your back  you are richer than 75 percent of the world. If you have money in the bank or in your pockets, you belong to the top 80% of the worlds wealthiest. If there is one thing you should take away from my post today, it’s that you should feel blessed if you have all of those things. Think about this, the majority of the worlds population is extremely fortunate but most still aren’t.

It is never to late to acknowledge how blessed you are. Start now.
