Thursday thoughts

I've been having trouble sleeping lately. I think I'm just going to say that I'm adjusting. My body and mind just need to adjest to all this adjusting and then perhaps I could adjust my current resting settings too. New job, new routine, varsity is all kinds of painful, ineffective torture at the moment which has got me in all sorts of internal hysterics, because who be it for me to be outwardly hysterically!

All in all, I'm taking strain. Funny (def not the haha kind) I'm having that "light at the end of the tunnel" feeling though which is pretty awesome. Feeling awesome however, not been high on my happy radar at the moment. maybe it's hectic hormones or something, but feel a little or maybe a lottle down in the dumpsies!

So borrowing this motto for my day, starting today. Needing a lot more sleep, which I will be taking! Getting some more exercise in, which will help with the sleep, moreover the AWESOME.

Here's to that! Being awesome!

That's an order to us all, to wake up and BE AWESOME!

Top of the morning...

Mornings are my favourite time of the day! It goes without saying. The air is fresher, day is brighter, crisp, clear air, minds, heart,that angst, anticipation and gratitude to get to start again.

The air is heavy with hope, belief and faith in the morning. Though some mornings, I am the first to admit, it's just HEAVY!Skip the hope, skip the faith, skip everything and just bring on the duvet!Cover me, I'm NOT going in!

I'm not a night owl I have to admit. I generally love mornings, but these days mornings are just getting harder to find my usual enthusiasm or "Hamas" as they say in arabic. New job, new schedule and that old enemy pro to the crastination seems to be rearing it's not so pretty head. Perhaps I need to adjust to the new routine, um maybe I should set up a new routine first.

I find that my mornings really do set the tone for the rest of my day. The less rushed and frenetic the better.
It takes a lot of this.

The next few mornings will be spent prepping, stressing and writing exams. Yikes!

I read this article this morning, thanks to Linkedin. It's titled What most successful people do before breakfast. It really got me thinking, I am wasting a lot of precious time before breakfast and I have a lot to do and a lot more I would like to do and get done. So time to take back my mornings!

Wishing you a glorious weekend filled with lovely, lazy, languid morning rituals, but spare a thought for how you can make your mornings work for you!

The only way to get things done and form great new habits!

Here's to top mornings! xx

Monday Musings

This is definitely what I need to hear today. Lately, in fact. This will be my life. I've been feeling, in part, a bit doldrummy (not fully down, but not super amped about certain things.) This really resonated with me. Thank you Bailey for pinning this.

Really a great way to live life and I'm going to start right now today. Want to see maybe there is something small I can do in my house.The truth though is this extends far beyond the tangible, but rather into EVERYTHING I do.

Interesting story, Elsie De Wolfe, who said this, according to The New Yorker, she is credited to have invented interior design as a profession.

That has prompted me to really think about sorting out my home office. Here are some of my thoughts below.
Dream Space 1.

Yes.Like this too.not sure it would work.

LOVING the colour.

I think I may have inappropriate dreams about this desk. BEAUTIFUL.

Here's to making our lives beautiful!

The Champ

So my friend Maxie and I were discussing the many merits of a petit sac par Longchamp, as we proudly rushed out of lunch time yoga. While I think my frame is far too large to go for most things of a petit varietal, being the bag lover that I am, I lamented that I do not in fact own a classic, plain, Longchamp sac. Woe be tide!! How did this happen?!

A little fun for the summer...

So I thought I'd just write a post as an ode to this classic of a bag lady in the know. My dearest Bailey, classic as she is kind, was looking gorgeous as we caught up for a quick juice on Saturday, classic Lonchamp, sac en noir in hand!

Just what get up and go, busy girls like us need. Everyday glam a la Longchamp !

Start with a classic!
