Can you Knope?

While I have never watched an episode of Parks and Recreation (not one), I do enjoy Amy Poehler and her sense of humour a lot.

I too believe in a signature dance move. What's yours?

I can sometimes be quite easily distracted, but it's usually if I have almost zero interest in what I am doing anyway. #truestory Anyhoo, I was reading the wonderful Miss Moss' blog and I happened across her Mid Week distraction.

Great read with many amazing finds, but what I liked most of all were the 8 life lessons from Leslie Knope.

Quite frankly, she just gets it and I don't know how I coped without them. One of my favourite parts is lesson no.7 on friendships. Good girl to girl friendships are true and rare treasures and are to be cherished I agree. This line from Leslie is my absolute fave.

Leslie: “You know my code. Hoes before bros. Ovaries before brovaries. Uteruses before duderuses.” 
Hilarious and true in all its hilarity.

I'm exhausted today from the inside out and I've literally limped through my day so far (it's only just gone lunch time), so this was just what I needed in so many many ways!

Keep going keep going keep going.

while you were sleeping...

So on of my fave blogs posted last year about  what do you do when you're home alone? It just dawned on me this evening as I have really need up to lots of stuff and loving it. My post yoga shower really seemed to give me an extra boost.

So I decided to use it wisely. So I did a load of laundry, then I loaded the dishwasher and switched that on, after tidying the kitchen, I was like, I should get breakfast ready for the rest of the week. Not long to go now with this week anyway. Yeeha! Did that, then I remembered there was a recipe I wanted to try that I saw yesterday. So yes, there I was kneading dough for chapati at this time of the night. Forgot what a great workout it is. I am going out for dinner tomorrow night, but the dough will be well rested when I need it and I'm super excited. I added some toasted flax seed and mustard seed to this recipe. Excited to see what I pair it with.

What do you get up to in this still of night?


Wednesday wonderings

So much on my mind as another month draws to a close. I am tired, but energetic. Lack lustre and inspired, all at once. Just a little bit of juxtapositions all up in here.

In need of inspiration, I've just but these together.

Have a  read of this, about a legend, the man who made Nutella needs to remembered forever! Great business insights.

Nothing like a great congratulatory note, especially from Stephen Hawking himself to Eddie Redmayne on his Oscar win for The Theory of Everything. Do watch this movie by the way!

Then there are these just in case you were wondering what to do with your life...

Don't do it!

Flowers would be nice

Peonies, as beautiful as they are scarce.
I do enjoy me some flowers. Like most things, I'm not for the stock standard ordinary. Over the years and having my own home, I've really grown to love flowers more and more.

I can never buy enough vases, they will always be handy and they are ever so treasured. Whether it's my blue kitchen jug filled with some heather when it's on season or wonderful proteas or other floral treasures I find, I just love walking into my house and having the beautiful delight of flowers around me.

Orchards have always scared me, I must say. They're like the cats of the plant world to me. They need you to pay some attention, but not too much, but I don't know what that is. I'm a nurturer by nature. So with my dear orchard, I just follow instructions on the label. She's still alive.

Something ever so wonderful is receiving flowers from a loved one. EVER so special. I just love seeing what they'll choose.

I must say it's been a while since a beautiful man has bought me flowers. I'm more into "just because you're wonderful" flowers than I'm sorry flowers. The latter scares me a lot. Fortunately I have not often been on the receiving end of those.

Flowers are a celebration. Even when I buy mine almost weekly, it's that beautiful treat to be like, hello lovely, we can't wait to come home with you (how I choose my flowers, they talk to me;) ).

I hope someone buys you pretty flowers. Even if that person is pretty little you.

Best I go fuss over my little orchard for a moment.

Monday mic

So I had to read some pretty terrible and stereotypical and biased and honestly unresearched research the other day and it really got to me. So many thoughts out there about black people and about women that are so far off reality, but are just perpetuated ad nauseum.

Trawling the interwebs, as I do, I came across this wonderful piece on Trend Mic on 12 Women who had the perfect response to sexist questions. These were briliant.

Just something to ponder as we begin the week boys and girls.

Happy Monday.

*does the scissor leg*

Thursday Thinkles

I'm rather over my wardrobe. I mean let me rephrase and stick with some gratitude that in general I love my clothes and my cupboard is sufficiently stocked for any occassion, but I want to tweak my look a little I feel. Maybe it's all part of this shedding process that I feel I'm going through.

Mm... What would Audrey do?
