Fffriday


Chocolate everything... {source}

My people in Paris and NYC, are all complaining about the heat! Silly, ungrateful people you!! Come here! We are all holding our bodies tight indoors, because Jo-boogy is now holding onto winter and its icy icy bite!

Much of what I will be doing today will involve the great indoors! Which is wonderful for my work! Funny though, I find I'm so productive in summer really where the sunshine just spurs me on. Winter when I'm frozen, full range of motion is really restricted.

Anyhoo, no complaints. I like this season, because when summer comes, I enjoy it SO much more.

A weekend of indoor time is planned that is for sure. As little of the elements as possible.

What about you?


I really want to bake these (but I need to translate the recipe first)
Singapore is often perfect  
Home made bread 3 words I sure do enjoy
All about nifty storage ideas...saw these yesterday and me needs them
MUST READ: Family Album and reading list (Kimmy & Bear)
Running on my mind
Don't bug boo

Believe

My bestie pinned this. She knows just what I need to see, even when I haven't seen her.
It is also so interesting that Frank Sinatra's "My Way", just came over the speakers as I type this post. Does everything line up? Perhaps yes.

More and more, I do believe that we are definitely a lot of what we tell ourselves repeatedly. Take heed of your mental soundtrack beauties.

I really love this. It is so important. I need to watch what I say about myself and over time I am becoming more conscious of this. Wonderful things only.

Love and light into all those parts of ourselves where the light doesn't shine so bright.

Vous me manques




Aujourd'hui je vous voyez Paris. Parce que vous me manques trop ces jours là!

I am lucky to get to speak one of my favourite languages often. Just yesterday I was helping my mother with her French homework. I do miss teaching French. There is a teacher inside of me, that's clearly just dying to get out. Maybe soon, I'll be letting her out to roam free. Bah oui ;)

There is something I have with the love of this city. Le roi, Francois I, has it so right, it surely is a world.

I need to go see my world soon! That's the thing about love, when your heart connects with something, the connection remains despite distances and the odd lovers' quarrell.

Paris, vous me manques. Je reviens tout suit chéri. 

Gros bisous

Aah the start of a new week. Got to love it. Loads to do, but slowly just pacing my way through the list. Oh wait! Let me write my list. hihi! I do happen to do that, write a to-do list post facto and include stuff I've already done. I just need some positive affirmation okay :)

Have a great week.

Just picked up some reads off the internet...

weekend winning

Hang out with your faves this weekend. {source}
Hello Friday!! You are beautiful! So is everything that comes with you and the days that come after too.

This is such a special weekend. My best friend in the world's babes turn 2 on Sunday. I am so sad and thrilled and teary and amazed and nostalgic and confused as to where did the time go, and wondering constantly how can they be so inexplicably beautiful and amazing and how it's possible for my heart to hold such love for two of the most perfect beings without bursting. My friend is such an amazing Mama and the honour of watching her be everything I expected of her and beyond my wildest imaginings of an amazing Mama. I guess she has a great blueprint, she's been raised by an amazing Mama herself. 2 is such a special age, but these wonderful little big beings and even biggers hearts amaze me and fill my heart with ceaseless joy and make me constantly want to burst into the happiest flurry of tears. Babes make birthdays mean so much more!

I wish you all a weekend that is filled with many things that fill your heart and soul with wonder. May you be amazed. May you kiss, may you hug, may you laugh out loud, may you hear a thousand words from just one look. May you be love.

xx

ps: I'm jamming to these here tunes. Have a listen.

Weighing in...

Today I've had some RIDICULOUS comments from guys. From a passive aggressive client to dealing with some insane ignorance from a guy who said that this girl he likes acts like a man and he doesn't want to be the girl by telling her how he feels! Please excuse me what is this nonsense that I am hearing! PLEASE come correct! This ignorance and there is really no word for this crudder, will NOT be tolerated!

Come correct.Please learn that expressing your feelings is neither feminine or masculine, it is mature and open!!

I was doing some reading, as I do and I came across this articles that caught my eye...

Let's please focus on what's important.

Education is everywhere and in every aspect of our lives.
Learn!

Have a happy, fulfilling week.

Do something spectacular every day! You be the judge of that!

Weekend vibes


Aah, happy weekend lovelies. This weekend rolled in rather swiftly. No complaints from here. So much to do and cram into these few 48 hours essentially.

I'm off to celebrate Eid with some of my fave peopme in my family shortly. What to wear is obviously whirring through my head at the moment, because my cousins ALWAYS bring it fiercely.

My bestie is enjoying her cousin's wedding in the bush with her babes. Such a sunny treat.

I have some work to do and in the interest of no procrastination I also will get my assignments done this weekend too.

Oh and work! There is ALWAYS work! Eek.

"Tell the truth even when your voice shakes."  This really resonanted with me today. Tell the truth, tell your truth, firstly to yourself and then it will be easier.

I met a guy last week. It was so good to realise, he's not for me. Yes he's cute, but he is so filled with self doubt, self flagellation and just some not so latent damaged/damaging self stuff, that I saw how so NOT good this would be for me. Well done me, because this would have really have fed my previously unhealed need to fix people.It's not nurture I have to tell myself, it isn't, it's just hard hard work that is ceaseless, bottomless, so deeply draining, unfulfilling and unhealthy. We cannot fix anyone. Each fix one-self. So good to remember that, "a lot of people aren't looking for love, they're looking for help." Know the difference.

So well done to me for learning my lessons! One day at a time. Not all days and weeks can be this clear, but we press on enthusiastically.

Just breathe. Just be.

Notes from plants...


Nature has got it sorted. We should take more notes for sure. I take notes. My bestie is off to her fave place, the bush with her babes for a wedding. I love the bush. Nature at its finest and also little babes in the bush, I mean life!

Plants and greenery as much as possible in my space and all spaces I go to are essential for me.  I like to keep my oxygen where I can see it.

I just love how plants are so different and they seem to rejoice in their beauty. While we may want to group them as all green, the shades vary so vastly and are all so beautiful, I wish I could take it all in.

I also realised, that there is so much we simply overlook in learning from nature. Plants take in yucky, carbon dioxide and process it to do what? Produce life giving oxygen back into nature.

Please use that analogy for life. There is so much yucky stuff that abounds and comes into our space, don't absorb it, just use it as a facilitator or catalyst for the process of making yourself great and contributing positively to yourself and your surroundings. Be your own kind of oxygen.

Oh and please don't forget to breathe. Reach towards the light to. Plants have that stuff on lock. Oh and we'll discuss their rootedness, another time, but you can think about that so long.

Breathe.

Number 10

I am my biggest nemesis to progress. If there is one tendency I would like to throw away and not even give up, it would be this awful tendency to procrastinate.

Yike!!

It really is a bother.

Now is best!

Weekend

I plan to rest! That's for sure! I need to take some time out! Life has been full this week. I'm super grateful that Friday is here though. 

No pictures please ;) {source}


I wish I could just go straight home and hit my sofa after spending the best part of my weeks, spending time with my bestie and her beautiful little twin babes. It's not crazy to be this crazy about two little people...They are are so beautiful and precious. My heart is so full of them and when I see them, it fills up even more. How lucky am I to have a bestie who lets me share in the most precious of moments with her most beautiful babes.

I've been up for a long time already... I technically have had very little sleep, but I do feel rested strangely enough. Let's see how I feel by 9am. I love mornings though, because it really is here at these times, just after 4:30am, where my mind is whirring on and I feel I can do anything, where I am invincible and in these moments I really do feel, that I "we are infinte."

I hope your Friday is fantastic. Mine is already and can only get better. Then onto the weekend... Yay!! 

Here's my reading list for us this weekend...

Right now, I'm busy invoicing some clients like ...
These street style stars, I definitely like most looks from almost all of them
I'm looking forward to this week's Family Album & Reading List from Kimmy & Bear  
Selfies in the Main House, wonder if the Queen is next
Ben and Jen...sad and true
Happy 4th of July weekend US
I'm always up for some good advice
  

Sunshine and warm cuddles to those in the Southern Hemisphere feeling the chill. 

Have a  great weekend everybody

xx

The right means...

Spending our time doing the most inane tasks, some of us call that our jobs. Don't do that to yourselves people. Find something in your work that you do to earn a living that makes you glad to do it everyday. We spend a lot of moments of our lives doing this stuff everyday. Oh and make sure that you get paid enough to take the most of the spectacular adventures that you go on when you're not at your desk, computer, behind the wheel of a 16 wheeler, there is a lot we can do.

Oh and remember to sit up straight, open up your heart centre, and BREATHE.
