Friday Inspiration

Last night, the husband and I celebrated 9 years of marriage (13 years together) with a casual dinner. We laughed, bantered and welled up as we reminisced upon our time together.
We love being our own people, but even more, we love how much better we are as a couple…

So, what’s got me ticking today?

1. Kylie… this look is on fire!

2. The home of late Italian Vogue editor Franca Sozzani

If there has been one thing I’ve learnt over the last few months, it’s that resilience is not about how strong you are, but rather your ability to break things down to bite size pieces – really taking things day by day, and not getting caught up in the feelings of today or the ‘what ifs’ of tomorrow.

If I’m completely honest, I’m one of those panicky people. I do it on the inside, questioning everything and anything – often thinking of the worst case scenario just so I can “prepare”myself. It’s not the healthiest approach, but I’ve slowly learnt to just deal with the facts of today and talk about my frustrations and fears. It’s unbelievable how such a little change in mindset (focusing on facts) can ultimately change the outcome of your performance and longterm health.

Okay, back to what’s got me ticking today,

1. Effortless femininity…

2. Eucalyptus used with shades of grey and white…

3. This Bracelet


4. Sweet Potato Gnocchi!

5. Listening to Be About You by Winston Surfshirt – Such a tune!

Sometimes in life you come to a cross road, and you don’t necessarily have the choice or option to choose your path. It’s at these times, you have to trust that whatever is coming your way has a reason or purpose. Sometimes there is a greater plan – you just might not be able to see what it is at that moment.

Today is one of those days for me…and surprisingly, I’m calm and hopeful. I put this down to the amazing people I have in my life.

Okay, enough with the cryptic messages. What’s got me ticking today?

1. Stella’s shoes….

2. The fringe factor at Missoni Resort ’17

3. Books & Art…

4. Nude and baby blue nails…

5. Listening to What I might Do – Ben Pearce. This one definitely gets me moving …

This morning started early and as such, got me thinking about productivity vs being busy for the sake of being busy.

I came to the conclusion that I fall into the ‘busy’ trap for two major reasons 1. I say yes to too many things and 2. Because others don’t have the same regard for my time, as they do their own. I think this is one of those problems that require a little more time to digest…

So, what’s got me ticking today?

1. Denim Shorts – on the search for a new pair…

2. This Tee…

I wouldn’t say I’ve been a grinch this silly season, but I’ve certainly been very slow to embrace the Christmas spirit. No tree, no decorations and no Christmas cards were sent out this year; I’m lucky to have even finalised my shopping!

But now that businesses have started to shut (namely all my trades) and work has finished for the year, I find myself ready to sing those silly tunes and share every minute eating, drinking and laughing with those that mean the world to me.

The Christmas tradition I look forward to most? Heading to midnight mass with the family, singing carols at the top of our lungs and then heading to my childhood home, where we share gifts and start our festive feasting.

Okay, so what’s got me ticking this Friday?

1. The cutest of gifts – this succulent garden from flower power

2. These silver Arc Earrings by Holly Ryan

3. These Books! (There are more including Movies, Literature etc) They take “big idea” and explain them simply…

4. Layering, which I haven’t done in a while…

5. Listing to ‘All I Want For Christmas’ Carpool Karaoke version

6. Words of the week & what I hope for;

Merry Christmas beautiful people…Thank you for your ongoing support & see you in the New Year! x A
