Hello lovely people! It's past 10pm here but I was so inspired when an email from the beautiful Alex Beadon dropped into my mail box that I just had to join in with the Feel Good Blogging Challenge. Oh Yes! That means that I will be blogging every day for seven days so get ready to be inspired and who knows, maybe you might learn a little bit more about me.
Who am I?
My actual name is Jayne Antins and my middle name is Rebecca... hence Jayne Becca was born! I am originally from Cumbria in the north west of England and I grew up right next to the beach. That's right, I am a beach bum at heart! I am currently living in Bristol and I love this city, it is so vibrant and there is always something fun going on. I love to read and I am really into self-help style books and spirituality at the moment. I also have a guilty pleasure in that I love watching US teen dramas, my current favourite is Pretty Little Liars. I just love getting lost in that world for an hour! I am a yoga teacher and I have a huge passion for health, fitness and helping brighten other peoples days :)
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging back in 2012 and I originally started this blog as a beauty blog. I love watching beauty bloggers on YouTube and reading beauty blogs so I figured why not give it a go myself? I found it to be a great creative outlet for myself as I was working at a pretty uninspiring office job at the time. As the months went on I found myself blogging more and more about my own personal fitness journey, health and wellness which is the direction this blog is now taking me in.
Who is your blog for?
My blog is for anyone and everyone who wants to find happiness and become comfortable in their own skin. I have been there with the negative self talk and body image distortion. In this vast world of social media it is so easy to be sucked into a world where we are comparing ourselves to other people on a daily basis. I wish to inspire people to be happy just as they are and to know that they are enough. I also wish to share my own tips on following a healthy lifestyle, share my passion for yoga and maybe inspire someone to follow their own dreams as I have.
What's something you have been working on lately that you are really proud of?
My yoga teaching certification and journey into living my dream and teaching yoga full time. If you read my blog on a regular basis you will know a little bit about my journey into becoming a yoga teacher. It has been scary, at times I have been unsure of my path but with the help of the universe nudging me along my way I am reaching for the stars!
What's the ONE message that you hope people take away from your blog?
To shine your light. To not be afraid of whatever it is you are afraid of. You can take that step into living a healthy lifestyle full of balance (because everyone needs a cupcake once in a while!).
Love & light until tomorrow!
