I thought today’s post would be a little more lifestyle than my usual posts as I feel like giving a little life update and letting you know what has been going on in the world of Samio.
Yesterday I turned a year older and celebrated my Birthday. Another year has flown by and now I’m starting to sound like a old timer when I speak, as you’ll often hear me saying things like ‘when I was younger’ or ‘time goes by so quickly’. I’m still in my twenties and not one of these people who dramatises my age by saying ‘I’m getting old’, each year that passes but I’ve just noticed that I’m more aware of time these days. How I spend my time and who I spend it with, is something I consider a lot more now than I did when I was much younger. I’ve realised how precious time is and how quickly it really does go by, so I try to embrace my experiences much more, appreciate the positive people in my life and make the most of everything the best I can.
One thing I did decide to do for my Birthday this year is actually celebrate it. Last year I did not and although I wasn’t bothered as I was busy with work, this year I decided to make some plans… On Saturday my boyfriend Damien, took me for Champagne afternoon tea at Opus One at the Radisson hotel in Manchester and that evening we met up with friends for drinks and had a great day/night. This coming Saturday I plan on being slightly less civilised, as I’m heading out for a meal with some of my girlfriends and then we are going out after to party, which should be great fun.
I’m also super excited as next weekend I’m flying to Hamburg to visit my dear friend Tara who’s over there from L.A. We met whilst living in our model flat together in Barcelona last year and since then we’ve constantly kept in touch and even met up in London (along with our other friend Natalia) last December. This time I’m going to her, as she’s over in Germany for the month modelling, so I knew I had to arrange the trip to see her before she jets back to L.A. I cannot wait to explore the city with her, as although I’ve been to Germany before, it will be my first time in Hamburg.
Aside from that and the odd trips down to London for castings and what not, my life is currently being taken up with D.I.Y. For those of you who regularly read my blog, you may know that my boyfriend and I recently bought a house together. We’ve taken on quite a bit of a project, as we are doing it up from scratch. So far I’m actually enjoying getting stuck in (although some tasks can be tedious). I can’t wait to see the progression and see what we make out of our new home. It’s hard work yet exciting all at the same time.
Due to our constant late evenings of partaking in home improvements, our diet has become exceptionally shocking. We keep biscuits and chocolate at the house to keep up moral whilst working, which I have to say does help but for someone who does not usually eat that much chocolate, I have been consuming a lot! The bad thing is, I’m noticing it in my skin and after having a break out, I’ve decided it’s time for a bodily system reboot (after this weekend’s celebrations of course). I managed to get back to the gym for the first time in a around two months yesterday and I instantly felt better for it. Now I’m ready to get back to eating well again and now that the weather is nice, walking more too.
And ahhh, the weather. The sun is making me super happy right now, even if I am about to spend my afternoon indoors steaming wallpaper, the sun shining through the window always makes me feel happier.
