It's a wrap!

From here

Let's call it on this week wonderful people! If you're in Joburg, actually most parts in SA this weekend, wrap up warm, it sure is chilly out! I'm kinda excited, because it means I can wear my coats and pom pom hat, just a few more times before my birthday month kicks in next week. Yay!!

I'm so glad I randomly went book shopping yesterday (a much needed little treat), this is how I travel on a budget. So glad I have books to read, because staying in this weekend will be so much more of a pleasure.

Have a glorious weekend you beauties.

Stay warm.


Don't you forget it!

Perfect to wrap myself up in this in this windy weather. From here
I got out of my car earlier and it had got so windy all of a sudden, the wind made me stumble a little. Now who doesn't want to travel with the wind a little, even slightly.

If you've seen the movie Chocolat, you will know that Le Mistral makes the main character want to pack up and move. Not great to be her daughter poor thing. Nomadic life is not for everyone.

Do winds bring change though? Do you believe that?

I got a surprise call from one of my greatest loves this morning. You know when a call comes just at the right time, a gift from the Universe to soothe your soul, a palliative for sure. Some call it serendipty I guess. Love is a wonderful thing. Besides anything else, it takes something as simple as a call to remind you how much you are loved and how much you love. A great little reminder.
Also reminds me of that Jamie Foxx song, Love brings change.

I think we all have our own little story and there are areas that we need winds of change to perhaps blow through. Having done yoga for over a decade, oxygen is key and breathing.

Take a deep breath and be awesome.

Tuesday thought

So life hasn't been showing up as expected lately, but that really isn't life's job is it. I have to rise up and go where I want to go. At least go meet life. So loved this pic when I saw it.

New moon about. Set some great new intentions people and may they all come abundantly true.

Leaving or staying?

That's my question to the weather and seasons right now. Please pick something and stick to it!

How I'll dress for this weather..
 Oscar Wilde said to speak of the weather is so dul, but I find the weather these past few weeks has really been a case of pathetic fallacy in many ways.

The weekend is upon us. My throat is sore, so I will be nursing myself this weekend and getting some much neeeded rest. Feel like I've just been in hyper drive this week. It's been a taxing week. I am rather drained, but I think I feel my energy picking up a little.

I made this potage for dinner this evening. Quick, simple, so tasty and nutritious. I'm excited. Ooh my kitchen keeps me happy and sane.

Have an awesome weekend you beauties.

Jamming in my Jammies

Well sleep decided to evade me last night, but insomnia...oh wow that little sun of a gun, just never seems to forget my address.

So this blog post is an ode to the sleep I have not got (waves goodbye sadly).

From here

Isn't great sleep wear an unsung luxury. I balk at the idea of sleeping in a t-shirt, except if it's your love's t-shirt and if they're not there, you get to feel like they're with you.

Trawling the interwebs, I came across this cool article on great pjs. A shower, brushed teeth, great bedside table assortment and a book, fresh white linen and great pyjamas, magic! An everyday luxury!

Have a look at some of these finds:

Donna Karan keeps it simple for summer
For lounging around the morning after the wedding night before perhaps?! From here
A little, fun print perhaps?
Vintage J.Crew will always do!

I hope...

F. Scott Fitzgerald has long since had some literary gems for me, but when I discovered this, it just spoke to me.

"I hope you {all} live a life you're proud of."
