A little or a lot

Cherish, love and appreciate everything you have got.

For some, their ‘everything’ may be more or less than others, but I think quantifying how much you have defeats the object of being grateful. Being grateful is about appreciating what you’ve got regardless of what it is or how much you obtain.

Obviously, this is can sometimes be hard to do, as we expect our norm to be someone else’s, too- but this isn’t always the case. However, just because someone lives a different way of life doesn’t mean that they’re not happy with it, regardless of what particular value you have placed on it?

Like I said, it’s all about appreciating what you have got, and not comparing it to others.

I know we all complain about what we’ve got sometimes, but this post was just to remind you that your rubbish is someone else’s treasure, and your norm may be someone else’s dream.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Chloe Lloyd

British model, Chloe Lloyd, is the new it-girl across all continents, having been the face of world-renound campaigns for all of our favourite brands, such as Maybelline New York, The Body Shop, and most recently Bic Soleil.

The 22-year-old is an ambassador for Bic, and now agrees that there’s no longer an excuse for not having smooth and silky legs this summer! The campaign is one of her latest business ventures this summer, and agrees the brand is one of the best.

However, before winning a competition at the age of 17, Miss Lloyd never intended being a model. As a child, Chloe always wanted to be an “actress or an artist” and was often scouted by agencies or organisations, but decided to continue her studies at college until she joined Storm Models in 2011 at the age of 19, and began world domination. Ever since then, she’s featured in magazines like Vogue and Elle, whilst travelling the world and spreading her witty personality to those she meets along the way!

Also, Lloyd is currently dating Union J heartthrob Josh Cuthbert, with the pair often spotted around London and at career-related ocassions. The two met at an event last November, with Chloe agreeing it was “love at first sight” once he’d asked for her phone number. Ever since then, Lloyd and Cuthbert have moved in together and have been inseperable, as well as regularly expressing their affection for each other through social media posts on Instagram and Twitter, bringing cuteness to their followers’ timelines.

When asked about her dream holiday destination and who she’s go with, Lloyd states that she’d love to go on a worldwide trip with Josh, but agrees that tropical islands have been her favourite so far, such as the couple’s recent trip to Barbados! However life as a model isn’t always so hectic as many would expect, as to describe her perfect day, Lloyd says “chilling out and going for dinner” would be her top choice.

To keep in shape, Chloe often goes to the gym and takes part in pilate classes. However she’s previously mentioned how the ‘healthy-only’┬álifestyle has never really appealed to her, but agrees that everything in moderation is perfectly fine as chocolate will always be her guilty pleasure!

To make herself one of the most highly respected models of our generation, Lloyd is known to not always feel the need to wear makeup, and instead spreads her natural beauty and prove to women you don’t need product to make yourself feel or look great! However on the ocassion when makeup is required, Lloyd agrees that in the summertime powder is a must-have in order to set foundations and creams to prevent smudging. Plus, to keep herself smelling freshly fragrant, Chloe says that Chanel’s ‘Chance’ is one of her go-to’s all year round!

Overall, Chloe Lloyd is a true inspiration to all men and women of today, through proving that a good attitude, cheeky humour, and motivation is all you need to succeed in the world we live in.

I would also like to thank Chloe for taking the time to answer my questions!

Speak soon. Lx

Positivity

All you can do in life is your best.

Whether that’s in order to benefit someone else or yourself, minimallist or life changing, positivity is positivity and whatever’s started will spread. You just have to be the one to start it.

Isn’t it true though? When your Mum shouts at you again for leaving your dirty plate on the kitchen counter, so you then go to school and snap at your friend because you were in a bad mood. The domino effect involves postivity and negativity.

But that’s because the world is far from perfect. However it’s our job to make it as close to perfection as possible. Life is gift, and we should always try to be the one to start the line of positivity, because we don’t know how far it could spread nor what good it could bring to those most in need.

I believe we all have a purpose in this world, for example, you were meant to compliment your friend’s new hairstyle that one time. This could make them feel good about themselves, for a start, but this could be an infinite change to many more people that you don’t even know exist. Something so small and simple, yet something so big.

This post was just to try to make my change, and spread my little bit of positivity in order to show what great impact everyday things can have on this world. Now I’m not saying negativity can be totally avoided, because it can’t. Like I said, the world we live in isn’t perfect so it will continue. However it’s our duty to do your best to prevent it, and/or, simply do better next time.
