THINKING ABOUT MY FRIENDS

During this week I am happy to say that I am keeping one of my goals I gave to myself, have real contact with friends and I'm having it, I am seriously craving for shopping but the truth is that I don't really need new clothes and I decided to wait June to buy a jacket for wedding ( yep I've decided which dress to wear and it isn't new I bougt it 2.5 years ago and wore it three or four times)....

I'm studying and reading a lot, doing a lot of personal accountancy and I am seriously hating to put my parent's financial documents in order, honestly I don't like this time of the year when you must to be organized for Taxes declaration, but the positive thing is that usually we will have some tax refunds so this is a good reason to keep financial documents in order....
I felt in love with several things, most are damn expensive and honestly I don't have space for them so I am only doing pics and put all of them into a folder, so I'm planning a perfect inte…

ELISA D'OSPINA BOOK: A CURVY LIFE

If I must to say who could be my style icon, I can easily reply Elisa D'ospina, why? Because she is a real beauty, she is a giant but not like skinny models that you see on tons of runway and fashion magazine, the same that you watch from your childhood dreaming a day to enter in this fairy world-and in the book you'll discover that it isn't so fairy-, she is curvy with real curves and she is beautiful!!!
When I was a child I was bigger respect other, I felt different a lot of nickname (some cruels) from other kids helped me to build a protection wall, now I love myself and my body and not Elisa don't say that obese is good because it is dangerous for healt how is dangerous be too skinny, so if you are a girl with curves learn to love them...

During this week I spent several hours studying, meeting friends, doing job interview and into burocracy office...loooooooooooooooooong time waiting to ask more information and some infos gav me right direction, the cost to be a sort of self employed are too high for me in this time of my life, so my choiche in this moment is to keep my works and maybe find another couple of side hustle jobs-that in this moment are helping a lot with my savings.
Money don't buy happiness but honestly in those cases you think that if you'd have a determinated amount you can do a lot of things, in the reality I am still working on my savings and honestly my first important financial goal to achieve is to have save for a home deposit.
I did a long list of pros and cons and for the moment cons are a lot higher than pros, but I am quiet happy because if in the interview I had another view, during first day I noticed that there are weird and strange things, plus also if I am going to became a licensed…
