jandarini Can you believe we're already nearly halfway through the month?! Madness! Tell you what though, I'm really loving the #radicalselflovejuly challenge so far. It's really making me dig deep and be creative, plus I'm discovering tons of new fab people - what's not to love? ️ Today's prompt was a classic What's In Your Bag! I generally always carry my huge wallet, far too much make up, a cute mirror, my diary and business card and heart-shaped #sunglasses. Such a girly girl! #me #accessories #marcjacob #fashion 3h

jandarini I love this photo because it looks like my little #radicalselflove heart is glowing! ️Today's #radicalselflovejuly prompt was all about our RSL bible. Now, the reason why I haven't shown the inside is because... I haven't started it yet! Terrible, I know, but it's my big project for the rest of the month! In the mean time... Isn't jt just fabulously #pink? 1d
  •   reinafleet I'm just starting mine as well. :) I picked up Gala Darling's radical self love bible course as an early birthday present for myself and it's gotten me excited to get going on it. What you have looks great though. :) 1d

jandarini Today's #radicalselflovejuly prompt (already Day 10, can you believe it?!) was a good old-fashioned #TBT! This was me at age 4, I believe. My mother was clearly very fond of tartan! #me 2d

jandarini I'm repurposing this ice-cream photo from Easter in the south of France to illustrate Day 9 of #radicalselflovejuly: the ultimate #radicalselflove meal! It's no secret: I've always had a terrible sweet tooth, inhaling cakes, candy and so on by the truck load! It used to be a bit of the problem, as I would regularly binge on these foods; however, with time and plenty of #selflove, I've come to a place where I can enjoy these delicious morsels without guilt, and with the appreciation they deserve. I am so proud of myself for getting this far and changing my mindset so much! Radical self love to the MAX! #me 3d

jandarini Oh no, looks like I completely forgot to log the first kilometres of my #marathonmonth challenge with @jostrunning! Last month, I decided to pull myself together and challenged myself to run the equivalent of a full #marathon over the course of the month of July. That's 42,195km, also known as a hell of a lot more than I usually do!

I really wanted to push myself because I've been finding myself slacking off lately. No more: I'm doing #dryjuly, #radicalselflovejuly AND this marathon challenge - it's going to be an epic month! Wish me luck, or better yet, JOIN ME! :D #running

jandarini Well, I never said that I could draw. But this self-portrait for Day 8 of #radicalselflovejuly is pretty representative, wouldn't you say? #me #selflove 4d

jandarini Truer words have never been spoken! I'm a big, BIG believer in the #positivity cause and, if or when it comes to it and you're feeling crap and generally miserable, faking it until you make it. There's nothing wrong with that: sometimes, we just need a little nudge to be able to see the beauty in the world!

So, next time you feel overwhelmed by negative thoughts, turn it around: counter a negative thought with a positive one. Don't worry if it doesn't feel natural at first - with time, it will! And it's so, so worth it.

jandarini Day 7 of @galadarling's fabulous #radicalselflovejuly challenge involved introducing you all to my favourite book! ️ Man, this was hard. #Reading has always been a great love of mine: as a child, whenever my parents took me to an event (which was OFTEN), I always, ALWAYS had a book in my hand. I am utterly convinced that reading has shaped me, in so many ways. As a result, it was very difficult for me to choose just one book - so in choose to introduce you to ONE of my favourites!
#IsabelAllende is, in my opinion, one of the greatest storytellers of our time. I've devoured ALL of her books but this one really takes the ticket. It is incredibly beautifully written, the characters have amazing depth and the plot, which spans decades, is sweeping, epic and engrossing. If you haven't read this #book, allow me to suggest that you do. Fast! It's incredible. You won't regret it.

jandarini Today's #radicalselflovejuly challenge was to show our best feature. Not the easiest prompt in the world - how on earth are we supposed to choose?! All kidding aside, I think this pic represents three of my best features (yes, I'm clearly a rebel at heart!): my wild, fluffy hair; my fun-loving, exuberant personality and last but not least, my flair for jewellery (I mean COME ON, that necklace is ace!). Happy Sunday, everyone! #selflove #me 6d

jandarini Today's #radicalselflovejuly challenge was to show what our ideal #selflove date would look like. To me, #cooking either for myself or for the ones I love is the ULTIMATE self-love activity! On the one hand, it soothes me, allows me to express my creativity and awakens my curiosity; on the other, giving joy and pleasure to my tribe gives ME joy and pleasure. Cooking, for me, is the ultimate expression of love. I infuse my dishes with #love and enjoy it so very much. How could it not be a #radicalselflove activity? 1w

Have you ever heard of #mindfuleating? I bet you have: in our time and age, our relationship with food has taken a turn for the worse, and mindful eating has been hailed as a way to counter this. I decided to test the concept by challenging myself to a week of mindful dining! Read all about it on the blog!
