hump day


hello life!! It's my favourite person's birthday today. My love of a nephew turns 11 today and I do not know how that happened! I am nowhere near ready! 12 is next, which means teens are around the corner?! How?! Not ready, so I'm just going to enjoy every moment of who he is and the age he is now.

The other day I dreamt I was pregnant with twins. Wonder what that means?! *researches, dreaming of twins*..okay googled it and freaked myself out more! I am NOT pregnant by the way!

This is my week for reading lists it seems. I came across these great reads and had to share them. I find myself at that decision precipe at the beginning of the year already. Rather now I say, so that I can just get on with it from here on out.

Have a read...

Rock out with your tutu out!

Grabbing inspiration from this look. {source}
Hello February. I do love this month, I must be honest! My favourite little person in the world was born in February and I think it has made me love it even more! Also the month where I met my most astoundingly amazing greatest friend ever! She also put me onto the idea, that the year starts out in February in earnest. So HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I remember varsity used to start in Feb as well, which was always exciting back in the day.

I'm particularly keen on this Feb. Today! For so many reasons and none in particular, all at the same time. Grateful to be alive! That is for sure. Feeling a lot  of enthusiasm lately and perhaps it stems from getting an inversion right in yoga this morning the first time round. They usually scare me, those inversions, but I decided fear was not going to stand in my way.

Hope a day of greatness is being had wherever you are!

Here is a wee reading list to start your week off...

A singular shrub  is my spirit house plant..What's yours?
This is how I'll be styling my shirts

ps: I love this year so far. First it starts on a Friday. Then a new month starts on a Monday. 2016, I love how you're so organised ;)

Janvier! Assez! Bye!

The first month of the year is about to bid us adieu! It zipped past hey, but there were moments where time slowed down and the moment was savoured for just a little longer. So special.

Putting this month away. Not keeping too much, this tab is unlikely to stay open. No hard feelings, but I am learning how to let go and be done with things, no straggling, no holding on to hopes that really are esteemedly far fetched!

I'm doing a warm water fast today. I learnt it on a yoga course a few years ago and I really find it beneficial. I have been uncharacteristically overindulgent this month, and by this I realised that there some feelings that I may have eaten in the form of a jelly baby or a most delicious crinkle cut chip! It's amazing how in doing this we realise how unconsciously we can sometimes eat and how much more you have to listen to yourself when not being distracted by food.

I'm looking forward to getting into my kitchen and getting my cooking on this weekend.

Here is my little reading list of things I loved reading this week and some that just made this month, so much lovelier to me.

To accompany a lazy saturday breakfast, I'm thinking zucchini fritters
What do your unsent messages say?
Do you like eating alone? I do
I plan to see this play


Begin as you wish to continue, but always end with an extra flourish, I say!

See you there!

New week! End of the first month of the year is upon already!! I cannot believe it and I love it.

We need a reading list for this week I feel...

Have seeds will brew. I'm going to try this Detox Tea.
Meat free Monday is about to get tastier with this Lentil dish
These seem so app'd to keep us organised
Trying to get a good bedtime  

Let's make today count. Each day at a time. I find I get myself so hectically wound up worrying about what is coming tomorrow, when I have not even got through today.
Trust in TIMING! Have a lot of faith!

Still becoming...

You know I am often so stressed that I don't know what I'm doing with my life and not where I am supposed to be. Then I have the sadly fleeting moments where I get a glimpse of the truth that I am so exactly where I am meant to be. I was listening to something this morning and it really struck me when the lady said, you are "still becoming..."

Isn't that the truth!? Who knows. Our own truth is always in these places inside of us, that we often look into last. Often because we are afraid of something that isn't even scary in the light of ourselves.

Monday morning has been lovely. I need to be off to yoga in a bit. My soul needs it and my body will benefit.

Here are a few wonderful links from the internet of things, that I wanted to share this Monday morning...

Strawberry breakfast cake is what I'd like to bake this week (maybe with raspberries, they're in season here)

Make peace and let go

I just read this somewhere on pinterest of course ;) This has definitely been the week for that. Yesterday it really hit me and today these words really just gave me the vocab for a little bit of what I was feeling.

Make peace and let go. We're so often told to let go, let go! Blah blah. I think the making peace part is so damn important! That is what I needed to do first, make peace. Peace is such a wonderful thing to come by and to indeed make, because really it is an active process,not devoid of one's own involvement.

It is ever so interesting (and strangely peaceful) to come face to face with things that no longer actually reside in you and to recognise that it is peace that you've been missing all along.

I made peace and in doing so, I found that I didn't even want to hold on in the first place. It's kind of funny. I realised in making peace that the letting go bit I'd done yonks ago really, I just had not made my peace on this piece.

Make your peace lovelies and let it in the order that you need.
