Do you tell yourself you are beautiful?

Do you tell yourself you are beautiful?

Do you ever just look in the mirror and think to yourself “who is that, she is hot?”.

Honestly when I go to bed at night, freshly showered and lotioned with the hint of rose blossom. I feel incredibly beautiful.

That moment when I slide into my sheets and my head touches the pillow is probably the most raw moment of me and yet it’s my best moment.

I am not constrained by looking a certain way, dressing a certain way in order to feel good and confident. I am stripped of all those things and my bare self and yet the happier self is there.

That’s how we should always see ourselves.

That saying beauty is in the eye of the beholder is so true. If you don’t feel it when you look into that mirror, then you have done yourself an injustice.

Because beauty is not about the skin, its not about how others see you, it’s about how you feel about you and how that carries to how you feel about others.

Next time you stand in front of the mirror, don’t compare yourself to others. Look at who you are and what you bring to the world.

Over tall rusty cars in one leap

Do you ever wake up and think ” I wish I could just leap” as far away as possible?

Me right now.

Me this morning and no doubt Monday morning. Right now I’m excited it’s Friday and I can leap out the door and head on home.

It’s been a hard week.

Guess what

Guess what

I got home from work last night and realised something.

On Sunday I was meant to be at an event and completely forgot about it.

It was the launch part for the July edition of Attention magazine. I’m in it!

You see I had forgotten it was already July.

The only reason I remembered was that a colleague at work rang me to ask where a particular spreadsheet was and I remarked with all the others.

In June!

So it was at that moment it dawned on me that I had overlooked the launch party.

If you are interested you will find the magazine here Attention Magazine. Im on page 144 – 160. There are some rudie bits in the magazine so dont get excited. I didn’t pose nude.

Diet!!!

Diet!!!

That damn word. 

Finally, yet again I’ve decided I must diet!!! Summer is nearly here and I’ve been incredibly slack the past few months. 

Winter has a funny way of welcoming you into complacency. I enjoy that warm fuzzy feeling of warmth and food. It’s a lovely feeling. Till you realise maybe you had too many pies!

Everyone I know on SL is doing the same. Diet for summer! 

I think we should all get together and share tips for lean eating.

So here’s mine for the day.

If like me you have a sweet tooth you will know how hard it is to avoid satiating that in a diet, especially in the cold weather as fruit just doesn’t feel right on its own.

Eton mess 

In a bowl place 1 meringue nest broken Handful blueberries, sliced Strawberries and top with Natural low fat yoghurt.

 Then top with more blueberries with a drizzle of honey (yes honey) as you are allowed some sins. Throw sliced banana on top. Job done.

Enjoy! But don’t go crazy with the honey or meringues. It’s all about moderation.

My direction of travel 

My direction of travel 

Sunday morning and laze day! I don’t care who wants to visit, I have no plans to dress up or be doing anything other than the pure laze.

I am one of those people who really needs at least one day a week that has no structure other than the one which is to do absolutely nothing.

I call it my recharge day.

Lately for a number of months my recharge day regularly gets disturbed and I never quite get that time I need to catch up with myself. Today, so far so good.

So far the laze lay in, has been a success as I’m still in bed. No one woke me, the phone hasn’t rung and the doorbell hasn’t dinged. Even the cats have left me alone. I call this right now a miracle.

The only thing that I’m planning today is one of my friends to visit this afternoon and sharing of a cuppa and gossip catch up.

So fingers crossed this Sunday is as I unplanned it.

Isn’t this outfit pretty?

Don’t ask me what I’m doing with the posing animations. But it made me chuckle so I decided not to speak and just kept doing it.

Into the wilderness

Into the wilderness

Something tells me this will be a lovely weekend.

I guess its the fact that its one week before Christmas and that I will be babysitting the most gorgeous little boy for a day while his mom goes and does her lashes business.

I have such adoration for that little guy and now he is walking (well kinda) he is like this little person on a mission. He says some words now and melts my heart when he walks to the cats and shouts CAT!

This outfit is gorgeous and I decided it needed to be in the wilderness, like some magical goddess.
