So nice to e-meet you! I’m Jayde, an Aussie living in Switzerland (often seen riding my pink bike past our local castle) and on a journey to live a more meaningful, happy and successful life.
As someone who used to put happiness and success down to luck, I would let life happen to me. But over the past three years I’ve discovered there was absolutely no truth to this belief. I’ve found the key to unlocking the life I once only ever dreamed of – MINDSET. Now my passion is to share what I’ve learnt so that you can uncover your own purpose and build a life of happiness and success around it too.
I like people who get excited about the change of seasons, the sound of the ocean, watching a sunset, the smell of rain and starry nights.
I believe that true happiness does not need to be found. We already have it surrounding us in the small everyday things and moments. Pink sunrises, birds chirping, fresh coffee and cuddly blankets. The things that are there for everyone.
Here in my little corner of the internet you’ll find me sharing my daily passions like travel, capsule wardrobes and any flowery goodness I can get my hands on as well as mindset tips for a happier more successful life.
I have always longed to create something beautiful which embodies my love for focusing on the everyday magic around me. Something that would allow me to share my journey and inspire others.
Having grown up and lived in Australia for most my life, at the end of 2016 when my husband was offered a job in Switzerland we both jumped at the opportunity. We knew that it would be the adventure of a lifetime for both of us. So we sold our house and cars, stored the essentials and farewelled our family and friends. I left my corporate career in graphic design and marketing to realise my dream of turning my Instagram account @jayde_archives into a blog.
I spent our first year abroad finding my feet, trying to figure out exactly what my blog was about and fighting so many moments of self-doubt. I couldn’t even tell you how many evening Jase spent trying to pep me up and encourage me to keep going (he’s a gem that guy). And finally, after what felt like an eternity of trying to make things work, during our second year something clicked for me. And that thing was that success doesn’t come down to luck, I was in control of how successful I could be. I started understanding how important mindset is to every facet of my life. The more I understood and practiced the more my business began to grow.
Now as I sit here at the beginning of our third year in Switzerland I am full of purpose and so excited for the things I have planned for Jayde Archives. I can’t wait to share everything I have learnt so that you too can craft a life for yourself that brings you joy every single day.
