Fresh flowers, warm sun, clean air... spring is all about changes and new beginnings. With that in mind, some purging is called for. Here are 8 things worth trying out all throughout this season for a cleaner life - inside and out!
Clean out your kitchen, go through the cabinets and box up any mismatched old plates, bowls, or silverware – then donate! Check under your bed, remove any leftover items and and dust while you’re at it. Grab all bathroom products and check their expiration dates. Also toss anything that you aren’t loving anymore or is super toxic!
Let go of all the clothing articles you will never wear again - you know you have them. Toss away all the clothes you keep because you think you might someday need them. Keep in mind to only wear things you feel amazing in! Once you do, we guarantee you will never be at a loss for finding something to wear.
Are you happy about where you are at work? Will it lead to something bigger and better in your chosen field? Are you settling in order to remain safely tucked inside of your comfort zone? It's time to ask yourself these questions. Once you have it figured out, then it's time to make the next move and make sure you are progressing with your work life.
Keep your desk minimal. See if your pens work too. You know that junk drawer where all receipts, recipes, and cards go? Recycle anything outdated or irrelevant. Take an hour to organize your workspace - it will be worth it. We promise arranging your desk will help you become more focused at work and keep the creative juices flowing!
Create a workout plan so you will feel stronger and gain more energy. Make a schedule, include something that's actually fun, and give it a go! Experiment with new classes like trampolining or yoga. As well as keeping you in shape and giving you a real sense of achievement, the endorphins boost will help keep stress at bay.
You really are what you eat. Some foods are just too good to say no to. It’s important to make sure you’re getting a balance of nutrients, and a variety of fruit and vegetables will definitely help you out here!
So many of us sleepwalk through life, wondering why we feel so stressed, and frustrated. Could it be because we don't get enough sleep in the first place? It's time to slot in more hours into your slumber - at least 7 hours per day. Mark our words: getting more sleep will clear your head and make you more focused at work and beyond!
Now that the weather’s improving, try to squeeze a little more outdoor time into your days! Spending time in green surroundings is one of the best things you can do for your health, thanks to the healing combination of fresh air, vitamin D – producing sunshine and the de-stressing effect of natural environments.

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.
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."
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.
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!"
