BLUE HAIRED GYPSY

Wednesday, 20 May 2015


Hi loves! What a busy few weeks I've had. M.E Awareness week this year was a huge success and I'd like to thank everyone who watched the video Meg from meg-says and I filmed, which you can watch in my previous blog post, here - M.E awareness week is the busiest and arguably the most important week of the year for me so it means so much that my friends online supported me - you're all the best!

Now that things have calmed down a bit I'll be getting back into posting more regularly, I have loads of style posts, positivity posts and a little secret surprise in the pipeline, so watch this space!

Now, onto the outfit... I bought this two piece in the Boohoo sale back in January and have finally got round to wearing it. I love the layered look and the way it looks when the wind catches it. I wore it with my chunky boots from spylovebuy.com, and went big on the accessories, opting for my favourite floppy hat, vintage bag and gold jewellery for a Gypsy Warrior inspired look.

International M.E Awareness Day

Tuesday, 12 May 2015

Today, May 12th, is International M.E Awareness Day. M.E is an illness I have had for the past four years. An illness which has taken so much from me, almost taken my life, and caused not only me, but my family so much heartache and pain.

My best friend Meg (who also has the illness) and I have filmed a video where we talk about M.E. What it is, who is affected, what happens, our own experiences with it, and how you can help this week. Our biggest aim is to get people talking, to get people thinking and hopefully understanding more. It is such a complex, debilitating, hugely misunderstood condition. I will let the video do the talking but I hope it helps you, weather you are a sufferer of M.E or not. 

For now though, I'd like to wish all of my friends who have M.E a HAPPY AWARENESS DAY!





Find Meg (isn't she just beautiful?) here:

Please share, RT, generally show love, etc etc, it is truly appreciated. If you have any questions, please free to ask us anything, we are both more than happy to answer your questions.

If you have M.E and would like further emotional support, you can visit this website where they have lots of useful tools and information

My bedroom is my favourite place to unwind and relax, which is hugely important for any chronically ill person. I've made my personal space into a place I look forward to spending time in, after all, I do spend a lot of my time there! Meditating and practising mindfulness is a powerful, and very useful skill. Since I have been ill, I have been practising both daily - Doctor's orders, and I have noticed a considerable difference in my overall state of mind. I would even go as far as to say I believe it has had a positive effect on my overall recovery. It is a healing tool.

I'm also a big fan of creating an atmosphere in a room so I fill the room with scented candles, soft lighting and lots of different textures. I wanted a canopy for ages and my Mum kept laughing at me and telling me I would look like a wannabe princess, but look who's laughing now Mum. LOOK HOW DREAMY MY DREAMING SPACE IS!

Six ways to love your body more

Friday, 17 April 2015

Spring is definitely here and I for one am glad to be saying adios to the winter. SUN - COME AT ME!
But, and this is a big but, I am already SO sick of seeing 'bikini body' tips being shared left right and centre. It isn't hot enough to even wear shorts yet and already I am being told how to look good in a bikini.

As a human and as a woman, I understand. It’s okay to want to be attractive (whatever your definition of that may be). If there is something that you don’t like about yourself, it is absolutely your choice to change if it you want to, however you want to. It isn’t my or anyone else’s business. However, I don't think it is right that we are constantly being told what to do and what not to do to look good on the beach or beside the pool. Instead what we should be focusing on is how to feel happier in our skin and to love our bodies, and seeing tips on how to do that instead. So have no fear ladies, I've got you covered.


love your body @ hayleyeszti


Simple ways to love your body more



1. Body Love List
Think of all of the things you love about your body. It could be that juicy derriere you own, those cute dimples at the bottom of your spine, the colour of your skin, or the freckles that look a bit like a smiley face. If you love it - write it. Write down everything you love about your body and when you are on the time of the month, or feel sluggish after eating too much pizza, or have just seen a Victoria Secrets campaign and consequently feel a little less glam, and a little more packet of ham, read your list and remind yourself that YOUR BODY IS AWESOME and you are sexy in your own way, so own it!


2. Celebrate your body
Got a nice pair of boobs? Show them off! Wear things that compliment your figure. In a relationship? Hold hands, have sex, be kissed, all over, and celebrate each and every inch of your gorgeousness! That hotness needs to be celebrated because girl, you are smokin' *sassy girl emoji*


3. Eat something wonderfully nutritious
We all know that saying 'food is fuel' right? Well us girls need our fuel. Treat yourself to something that is going to give you a boost whilst being succulent and tasty at the same time. Your body will feel happier, and that in turn will make you happier. It's a win win situation. Especially if strawberries are involved. Who doesn't like strawberries?

4. Wave goodbye to the scales
You know they are the devil. Why do some stupid numbers matter so much? When those numbers are positive they are great, but when they aren't they may as well be called Regina George, and we have all felt victimised by Regina George before. Scales - be gone, you're more trouble than your worth.


5. Pamper
Go and spend a few hours in your bathroom, who cares if someone needs to use the loo, I'm sure there are bushes outside. Pampering must take full priority for a few hours. Have a hot bubble bath, light some scented candles, paint your nails which ever colour you so please, and hell, why not go full out and whack on some tunes and sing into your hairbrush at the top of your lungs. Naked. Whilst your fake tan dries. This is what life is all about.


6. Laugh
In a gut-busting my abdominal muscles feel like they have been murdered kind of way. It's the second best form of exercise! (For the best refer back to number 2) Laughter is the best. Go and chuckle until you hurt, you little laughaholic you!

My tips for preparing for a stunning summer

Thursday, 9 April 2015

I don’t know about you guys, but I can really smell summer in the air! I truly love this time of year. You can feel everyone around you get happier and more positive as the temperature rises and the days grow longer. If, like me, you are determined to have a happy and beautiful summer this year, here are some of my tips on how to make this happen!


Tip # 1 : Deal with those body bugbears

During summer is when our bodies are at their most exposed; a fact that makes most women collectively panic about this time of year. If you have parts of your body that you are self-conscious about, I would recommend doing what you can to relieve these feelings now. This might involve anything from buffing your cracked heels to booking in for a treatment at a medical spa. Just remember to do it for you though. It’s about making yourself feel beautiful and carefree so you can concentrate on enjoying the summer. It’s not about impressing others.

Tip # 2 : Start creating your summer wardrobe

I think the clothes we wear in summer are the most creative, comfortable, gorgeous, so I am certainly looking forward to getting started on my summer wardrobe. If you are not sure where to start, something I love doing is browsing online fashion mags and blogs to see what’s predicted to be in style. It really inspires me to get creative with my outfits. This summer I can’t wait to indulge in the throwback trend of the year; the seventies! I’m thinking oversized floppy hats, loose shirts, denim shorts and chunky sandals.

Tip # 3 : Have a pamper sesh

What get’s you more in the mood for summer than a good old pamper sesh? We are all guilty of neglecting certain areas of our body over winter. However, in summer, we care a bit more and have more energy to buff and bronze ourselves. So, switch off your phone, get out your pamper kit, run a nice bubble bath and start indulging in a bit of you time.

Tip # 4 : Book an awesome holiday

You just can’t go through the summer without taking a holiday. Everyone needs to take the time to recharge their batteries and let their hair down. And what better time to do it, than when the sun is shining down on us. Even if you only have the budget or time for a staycation, it will be really worth it to get away from it all and enjoy yourself.

Tip # 5 : Stock your fridge with fresh food

Hooray! No more stodgy meals and bloated tummies. Spring is here, summer is just around the corner and this means there are loads of amazing ingredients in season. We can start eating beautiful, healthy salads and colourful fresh fruit now! And in no time we will all be feeling lighter, healthier and more energetic.


I hope this post has got you as excited about summertime as I am. If you have any of your own tips for preparing for a stunning summer, please let me know!

Positivity | Stop judging, start succeeding

Wednesday, 8 April 2015

positivity stop judging start succeeding @ hayleyeszti
Positivity stop judging start succeeding @ hayleyeszti
One of the biggest obstacles of success is letting go of judgement. Judgement simply put is fear, and being right by making others wrong perpetuates a negative cycle that blocks your energy and true potential. It tears you down and hinders your success. It depletes you and everybody around you. 
Acceptance on the other hand is love, it's nurturing. It feeds you. Having compassion for yourself and other people without criticism or judgement creates space for more love, more blessings, and more success.

Success comes to you naturally when you no longer put up resistance and take up an open and positive attitude. As a form of defence many people divert attention from themselves by criticising others, but deep down they are harshly judgemental about themselves.

_________________________________________

Since we are defining success as a living reality here and now, judgement should stop today. Nobody is perfect and instead of focusing on our flaws, we should focus on our unfolding potential. What we are good at is getting better. Everything else can be improved and corrected with the help of others. Difference doesn't have to mean us VS them, or me against the world. Not judging people relieves us of the constant need of comparing ourselves with other people. There is no need for negative comparisons because your path is completely unique. Your middle could be someone else's start, or someone else's end.

No one achieves success through limitation. The secret is to be yourself with the intent of presenting your best self in any situation and if you can do that then you are already winning.



Peace, love & positive vibes
