Balmain x H&M

   The Balmain x H&M collection is said to be "clothing for the next generation". It is a truly impressive collection combining quite a few styles; some of the pieces are very classy yet they have an element of chique to them whereas other would classify as glamorous. The combination of different styles makes the clothing easy to style and some of the pieces would accompany any basic piece possessed by most.

  The campaign itself was found to be quite impressive, featuring Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Olivier Rounsteig. The hi-tech and nearly robotic style of the campaign is symbolic of the term " next generation" which will, according to many, will be dominated by technology. Not only that, but it tend to be that in the future ,when everything will be computerised, an individual will need something unique and rather unusual to stand out and be able to make a statement, which is exactly what the collection is offering us.

How to be happier/more optimistic

    The modern world makes many of, particularly teenagers, feel overwhelmed encouraging quite a few of us to walk down the path of depression. Sometimes you can can walk so far down you end up in a dark place you have no idea how to leave yet it scares you. Do you ever feel like there is nothing to look forward to and all your friends can offer you is misunderstanding and phrases like " why are you so sad ?", "Maybe it's the time to change..." and so on? If yes then carry on reading and you will certainly be helped in one way or another.

  The real question you should be asking is how do I look for the positive things if my day was really bad? How can one be an optimist when it seems pretty much impossible? What is the point of being happy all the time ? Ha, here comes the law of attraction " you receive what visualise", thus if you're constantly negative you will make your life even more negative and fall down the ladder, which is not the greatest thing. So,how can you lighten yourself up and become more positive ?

1. Sit down and think about what bothers you

Sometimes there can be so much happening you aren't even sure what it is that bothers you thus it is incredibly beneficial to consider all of the occurrences to come to a reasonable conclusion. It can, however, be challenging to organise your thoughts and arrive to a logical conclusion so if that's the case for you then take a pen and a piece of paper and outline everything; once you make everything visual it can be much easier to get your life together. I, personally, found it incredibly beneficial to keep a small diary when I was going through an emotionally-tough time in my life, where I recorded all of my thoughts and feelings and I can assure although it does require some time and effort it can help you figure out what it is that you find overwhelming allowing you to then eliminate it.

2. Music

Good music can make you feel better. If you are upset and you listen to sad songs you will certainly feel even worse- the lyrics will remind you of events, people and so on and you will end up over thinking events and individuals making a situation seem even more dramatic than it is. When you are feeling down what you don't want to do is hold on to an event which made your day bad but you should try to move on instead. Listen to something positive or calming( indie music tends to be great for this purpose since it's pretty relaxing).

3. "Do what you love, love what you do" 

When you are feeling unhappy do something which you enjoy - this can vary from drawing to going out for a jog since all of us are diverse and enjoy different things. Take your mind off the things which make you feel sad or stressed and dedicate some of the time to an activity you love. You will most certainly feel better afterwards.

4. Find someone to speak to

When I was going through a very tough time in my life I found this to be the hardest to do as it can frequently be extremely difficult to find an individual to open up to. It is important the the person understands you and attentively listens to you as it can impact you both positively and negatively. Go and speak to someone you trust and hopefully they will advise you on how to act in relation to an issue but if not at least you will let all your negativity out. The worst thing you can do is keep everything to yourself since all of your emotions will collect and one day the little ball of negativity can "burst" and you might even lose self control.

5. "Fake it till you make it"

I remember scrolling down tumblr and then I was exposed to this quote. Even if you are not sure what is currently happening in your life and all you're feeling is negativity try to smile. Yes, horrible things happen to all of us but it's important to smile through the toughest times in your life and keep going, The term "forced smile" might sound negative and many would classify that as "being fake" but for some of us that is the only way to escape all of the problems we are exposed to.

Happiness is not a constant but is rather a variable dependent on a number of factors. You can feel incredible one day and feel absolutely awful the next day but just remember that you aren't alone. You might not have anyone to talk to the moment you need them but try to overcome the difficulty yourself and you will be thankful and feel stronger. 

In case any of you guys are having any problems I would only be happy to help since I do know what it is like to feel pessimistic and practically depressed. In case you do need someone to speak to feel free to contact me at
