Back to basics

 

I love basics. There, I said it. Yes it’s fun to jazz up my look with great colours and accessories but to me, there’s something exceptional about a well made basic.  A simple black dress, a striped shirt, ballet flats, a crisp white button down blouse, tailored pants. Love it, love it, love it.  I’ve always thought that Audrey Hepburn wore that look well.  Would like to know how you define your style. Is it boho chic, sporty, classic, an eclectic mixture of other styles? Drop a line below and let me know.

Setting goals with grace

So often we jump in feet first with resolutions, I’m going to go down 2 dress sizes before Valentines Day, I’m going to exercise every single day, I’m going to stop that bad habit and never pick it up again. Can I make a suggestion? Instead of saddling yourself with a New Years resolution, how about marrying your goals with grace!

What if you chose 3 things that you would incorporate more of, instead of taking things away. Psychologically, you’d be more inclined to continue doing it. For example, you could choose to start your morning by meditating, praying or saying 3 things you are grateful for. You can choose to go for a walk or get a breath of fresh air on your lunch hour. You could choose to make a list of your action items for the next day, every night before bed. The idea here is to declare a life where you add value to your daily existence. That way, instead of focusing on deprivation, you’ll instead focus on your abundance.

Remember that you are awesome!

You are beautifully and wonderfully made! You are here on this earth for a purpose. You are meant to make your mark, in this moment in time.  I can’t stress enough, what a miracle it is that you are here. So embrace who you are!

Sometimes, we are our worst enemies. We would never talk to our friends the way we talk to ourselves, but this year give yourself a chance to start afresh; start anew. Every time you start to criticize yourself…STOP…and find something positive to say about yourself instead. Before long, you’ll start loving the remarkable, complex person that you are, in a way in a truly significant way.
