5 New Years’ Resolutions Every Singles Should Make That Doesn’t Involve Saying #ByeSingleLife
07 Jan 2018IDEASBY SweetEscape

“It’s the new year and you’re still single?”

Girl, if your friend ever says that to you, you need to walk away and find new ones! Because we know, and you know, that being single isn’t about pickiness or unworthiness or selfishness, it’s really about time. So you haven’t met the one? So what? Maybe you just haven’t crossed path yet. And that’s okay!

by Dimitris for SweetEscape in Santorini

Although we hope that you will soon meet the one who will give you all of his heart, there’s really no use to waste a moment feeling sorry for yourself as you wait for him to show up at your doorstep.

Here are 5 things you should be doing instead, in the meantime:

1. Build healthy relationships.

We are social beings whose existence are defined by the relationship we have with other people. We thrive in communities and we are greatly affected by relationships, so much that the right ones will lead us in the right way. As you wait, take a look around. Are you happy with the relationship you have in your life today? Do you think that you would be happy if “the one” emerged from the friendships you currently have?

2. Enhance yourself.

We attract and are attracted by people who share our life values and who do things the way we do. Take a good look at yourself. If you met someone who is just like you, would you be interested? Focus on being great so that you will attract someone just as great.

3. Don’t let yourself go.

Just because you’re single, it doesn’t mean that you can do whatever you want and take yourself for granted. Continue to take good care of yourself. Eat consciously. Work out. Find happiness in the little things life has to offer. Go solo traveling (like her!) or on a getaway with friends (like this group!). Discover new cultures, visit new places, taste your next favorite food! Pick up new habits. Live in the moment, be conscious of your being, and define yourself in ways that make you proud. Whatever you do, take care of yourself, because being single doesn’t mean that you don’t deserve to be happy!

4. Be present for other people.

One thing you should always remember that love is not measure by your relationship status. You can be single and feel loved without being in a committed relationship. Don’t shut yourself from other people. Instead, go be there for them! Be present. Be more involved. Don’t take them for granted. Be an amazing friend and a more amazing daughter/sister/cousin. Show your love everyday to everyone you love and love you back.

5. Stop questioning yourself.

Being single can make you wonder if you’re good enough and if you’re worthy to be loved for someone else. your worth is never defined by your status. Single or taken, you are still loved and wanted. You can still be single and loved and wanted, all at the same time. A committed relationship does not define your worth.

Real Stories from Real Clients: What Makes You Love SweetEscape?
28 Nov 2019STORIESBY SweetEscape

The idea of getting someone professional to take your photos might not appeal to everyone, but here in SweetEscape we firmly believe that once you tried a SweetEscape session, you'd immediately fall in love with it and would want to book more. No, this is not a marketing campaign, it's a fact! Don't believe us? Check out these real stories from our real clients on why they love SweetEscape so much!

1. The First Timer

Our very own Creative Director, Jalu, wasn't really a big fan of being photographed. However, after 8 months of working in SweetEscape and (naturally) getting exposed to SweetEscape's beautiful photos in a lot of beautiful locations around the world, Jalu started to feel that maybe being photographed isn't such a bad idea after all.

So, for his family holiday in Tokyo this year-end, Jalu booked his first-ever session. What impressed him the most is how easy the booking process turned out to be–just through the app. His interesed was piqued even higher when he met the photographer who was very friendly and easy to converse with.

"I also noticed how professional their cameras and gears were! So it made me even more convinced that my photos would turn out to be great!" said Jalu.

by Mizuki for SweetEscape in Tokyo

When Jalu received the photos, he was surprised at how beautiful the photos turned out to be. His wife loved the session and the photos, his young daughter–which he feared wouldn't enjoy the shoot–also absolutely loved it, even he himself looked good in the photos!

"The photographers really know how to find the perfect angle for you, I never thought my photos would turn out these great!" said Jalu. "I absolutely love it, and I'd definitely book more sessions when I travel to other interesting locations in the future."

2. The 'Seasoned' Lovers

Sheena Buraga and her husband Daniel are truly one of the most unique clients SweetEscape had recently. Their 'Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept is really inspiring, and SweetEscape is proud and honoured to be a part of their love journey from the very start when Daniel first proposed to Sheena in Tokyo (spring), to their pre-nup shots in Nami Island (autumn) and Niseko (winter), and finally to their final pre-nup shot in Siargao (summer).

"Between May and June 2018 after the proposal, we started planning for our wedding. At first we thought that the photos in Tokyo would be our proposal / engagement photos, and we wanted to capture another pre-nup photoshoot, not with SweetEscape. But when seeing our proposal photos shot by SweetEscape, everybody said that our pre-nup shoots will look less beautiful compared to the super-beautiful photos of our proposal taken by SweetEscape! Considering this, and since we were travelling to Nami Island, South Korea in the autumn, we decided to create this 'Four Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept with SweetEscape!" said Sheena when asked about what made them keep taking their pre-nup shots with us.

3. The Reporter

TV reporter Najla Hilabi always puts an extra care for her Instagram feed; she wants it to look extra neat and beautiful, and this was her initial reason to use SweetEscape. After knowing about us from an Instagram ad, she decided to book her first session for her trip to Prague.

"I don't know if I'd ever go back to Prague again, so I thought it was important to capture my moments there with a proper photography service," said Najla.

What impressed her was eventhough there were some language barrier with the photographer, the photos still turned out beautiful, and the photographer brought her to the hidden gems of the already enchanting city. This, in addition to the beautiful photos she received afterwards, made her book another session for her recent trip to Tokyo.

"I feel that SweetEscape always maintains their standard of quality. You don't just get your raw photos, you get perfectly curated and professionally edited photos, and this careful production process really makes me love SweetEscape!"
