Happy Friday

I've been chuckling since this morning mostly. My sisters have both been making me laugh at different intervals in the day, but more than anything I've just been tickled from the inside for no paticular reason. Which is great!

So in honour of my day I ran my errands today in a beautiful black dress and wonderful, but comfortable and sensible high heels. Oh and lipstick. It makes everything even more awesome right?!

Also it's starting to seem like Friday is my day for cooking up a storm. Last week Friday I did it and tonight as well, I'm roasting a chicken, (those who know me, know it's one of my fave things to do, even though I don't like chicken.) Also making pork burgers with a wonderful combination of sage and rosemary and freshly grated nutmeg(love this).

Have a great weekend you buttons.

We have 10 days to go until our fair, so please buy tickets for Rock-A-Baby

 My reading list wishlist, now inlcudes How to be Parisian... Having lived there, I already feel une peu titi Parisienne, but a little refresher never hurt.

Have a glorious weekend

Be Brave

When I finally did a headstand in a moment of angst in my teeny tiny room in Paris, after many years of doing yoga and not doing headstands. I messaged my yoga teacher back in SA to tell her the incredible news that my body literally went into a headstand and she simple said to me you needed extra courage. Headstands give you courage she said. Well well..

What gives you courage?

Go out there and be bold!

A line popped into my head the other night before I fell asleep, "We think we have time." I can't remember who said or where I read it, but it popped into my mind.  We do think we have time hey. 

My most precious little twin nephews turned 7 today. I remember coming back from Paris on the monring of the 16th, it was a Sunday. That flight on the Saturday before was unmissable! They were born on a Monday my precious little facelets, two beautiful little boys, little womb-mates and as it turs out life mates. Great way to start that week and frankly great start of our lives again with them in it. Now they are 7! With twins every things seems faster, because the pace doubles, but then again, so does the joy!

I've really been thinking about time lately. I think it was on Sunday when I was getting dressed to head to a meeting and as I put on my dress, I smiled and I said to myself, that you will never be as young as you are now. 

Make the most of the time you have. Spend it with those you love, you little button boos!

You are so much more amazing than you think you are. Use your time to Shine!

Sunlight on my eyelashes

I'm sitting at my desk as the lovely South African streams through my window and shines on my face. How lucky am I?!

I could be anywhere, but I'm here. Right now, right here. This is beautiful.

Go big and bold!
It's that awesome time of a week that just flew by! Yikes!! Also just 2 more weeks until we launch our Baby fair with flair! Eeek!! It's around the little baby corner! So excited! Come through you beauties.

I'm devoting this weekend to some ME time. I asked myself a very serious question the other day, who takes care of Me? I often give time and energy to those I love and ever so happily, but I realised also that I am exhausted and depleted. Tired of keeping it together and keeping myself sorted and taken care of on my own. I have my darling bestie who sends me the most beautiful messages and even she doesn't know how much meeting her and her random texts asking checking in on me, save my life in so many ways. I am a lucky girl. As I wrote in my journal last week, Love saved my life.

Have a beautiful weekend you gorgeous bloglets.

Here is a little reading list for the weekend:

Loved this week's post on Kimmy and Bear
Being a girl with a beautiful bigger bottom, this Vogue article, really annoyed me. Bigger bums are NOT a new era!!
These affirmations are straight off the #NYFW runway!

Still in my skin

I knocked my knee yesterday. Usually we just knock ourselves, hold the throbbing areafor a momet and then move on. Well at least that's what I do. Yesterday morning, I knocked my knee, in clearly a really terrible spot. The pain was awful. I have an exceptionally high pain threshold, but this really got me, the pain made me nauseous. Well the knee swelled up and the pain multiplied! Goodness me!

So today, my sore knee meant, that I moved very little today. Well I chose to move very little. I sat in front of my computer and worked! Had a lot of tea and took it as easy as possible.

I realised that I needed to take good care of myself, something I've grossly neglected for a long long time.

It was good to be still and be in my skin for a change. Quiet and occupied.

Queen of Queens

Serena won her 18th Grand Slam title on Sunday night, winning the US Open. How amazing is that? She's back people and in better form that ever it seems.

Strong, smart, athletic, fit, fabulous and sexy as heck!

I love tennis, because it is such a mental game. When your mind gets out of sync your serve and your game goes with it! Eek!

Young Serena in Vogue! Yes she did!

This woman is AMAZING! That is all.

Go Serena! For me you're the Queen of sport gosh darn it! Go on with your great self!

She said it!
