Your Destiny Reading…

In Daily Chronicles on October 27, 2015 at 12:32 pm


Daily Read, T.D. Jakes, #tdjakes, #inspiration, inspiration,  destiny

I simply love books which inspire and motivate.  I’m on a major spiritual journey, and I’m absorbing as much as I can in order to succeed on my path to greatness.  I must be able to help others as well as myself.  Growing and becoming the best woman I can be is a constant and daily goal, I must strive for and be better than I was yesterday.  My current daily read is Destiny Daily Readings, inspirations for Your life’s Journey by T.D. Jakes.

This little gem is a companion to Bishop Jakes new book Destiny, which I will start reading soon.  It’s a book of affirmations, meditations and scripture with suggested action steps on fulfilling your God-given role day by day. It’s definitely food for thought.  If you’re on a spiritual journey like I am, this book is for you. Purchase yours here.

Happy reading.


It’s A New Dawn, It’s A New Day…

Sika Dress and Me

Hi Darlings, I thought I’d post an update to let you know how I’m doing on my self reflecting hiatus {and also show off my fabulous Sika dress}.  I’m FANTASTIC!!! It’s been a challenging couple of months in my personal life, and that’s why I decided to put my blog on hiatus until the dust cleared.  I’m happy to say 90% of the dust has settled into sparkling fairy dust, and my creativity is bouncing back with a force and passion, I’ve never seen before. It’s amazing how so much light can come out of a dark place.

♥Stay Strong♥

There comes a time in all of our lives when things look really bleak, but I’m here to tell you that if you just hold on, don’t give up and try your utmost to keep those negative thoughts at bay, you will come through {read “The Secret“}.  Try your best to have some sense of normalcy, don’t throw yourself into a pit of depression, there’s nothing for you down there.  Remember there are lessons to be learned through every life experience, especially the bad, and I’ve been blessed to have learned quite a few these past months.  As far as I’m concerned it’s though God’s grace that I have come through my own predicament, a place I’ve never been before, and hope I never experience again.  The most important thing is, I’ve learned so much more about myself, I’ve learned what’s really important.  These new tools will guide me on my new path for the rest of my life’s journey.

♥Never Give Up♥

I’m choosing not to disclose what I’ve been through on my blog, because my blog is a happy place, and some things really are just personal. I also realize there are others, going through so much more than I did, so it’s important to me to try to inspire at least one person to Never Ever Give Up… Ever!

For those of you who read the bible, read Psalm 121 daily, believe me it’s very powerful; for those who know this Psalm, you know what I mean.

♥Exciting New Things♥

As I’ve mentioned before, in the coming months, there will be lots of exciting and lovely new things coming to my blog and my company; I’d love for you to stay tuned, and continue on this fabulous journey with me! In the meantime, I will continue my hiatus, with short bursts of inspiration until September.  Namaste♥

Silent Night…

Merry Christmas 2

Merry Christmas Dahhlings; especially to my UK family, and also to my new WordPress, Facebook, Blog Trends and Twitter families; I wish you all a fabulous and glorious holiday season.

May the season find you healthy, in good spirits and prosperous.  May 2013 be the most fabulous year yet! God Bless!

Christmas isn’t Christmas for me, until I’ve heard Silent Night {Stille Nacht}.  For me, it’s one of the most beautiful and moving Christmas carols ever.  Composed by Franz Xaver Gruber and lyrics written by Father Joseph Mohr.  Here’s one of the versions I love, sung by Mariah Carey, who in my opinion, sings it beautifully.

Stepping Out In Faith…

In Daily Musings on June 7, 2012 at 12:54 pm


1 year ago today, I left a high paying job of 8 years to step out in faith, and follow my own path.  Sometimes you have to take a risk, risk can be good!  It’s important to calculate your risks as best as you can; more importantly, put your faith in God, he will never steer you wrong.  A good paying job does not instantly mean happiness, I found that out the hard way.  A high paying job does not guarantee you good health, good relationships or  good associates, I found that out too. 

There’s nothing wrong with working for corporate America, corporate UK or wherever you are in the world, just make sure you are in that job for the right reasons and not just to get a cheque.  I choose to work for myself.  I’m an Aquarian, I am creative, I need to just be… Me!

In the last 12 months I have not looked back.  Instead, I started my blog, stepped up my crochet business, opened my Etsy store, figured out Twitter, taken on contract work; made fantastic friends on Instagram (and Twitter), and more importantly I became one happy, over the moon, high-heeled strutting, loving her life, vintage wearing woman! It’s been an amazing journey.  Believe me, I haven’t really started yet! There’s so much more to come!

There are those who rooted for me every step of the way, and from the bottom of my heart, I truly thank you. You’ve helped to make this journey what it is.

Be you… Always!

Love & light.

3 Months Ago…

In Daily Musings on April 5, 2012 at 10:48 am


On January 5, 2012, I started my blog… Blogging is something I’ve wanted to do for years, but the timing wasn’t right.  I had many lessons to learn beforehand.   I’m a ceative person and I could only give 100% or none at all.  After many personal difficulties and uncertainties, I have risen like the stately phoenix through the ashes and am now spreading my beautiful wings.  The few who know me personally, know exactly why I say that.  To have gone through and come out the other side of my personal trials, only God Himself has caused me to be here today. 

I want to thank the people who truly stuck by me, listening to me through my tears, anger and everything in between; who encouraged me and told me I would rise.  I could not have done it without you. 

I want to thank those who did not have my best interests at heart, because of you, I learned so much and came out even stronger, again, thank you… Mwah.  After going through the worst, I am able to see the positive and beauty in life and truly embrace it.  Every single day counts!!! As one of my personal tag lines says: Embrace Yourself!

The intention of my blog, is to Uplift, Embrace, Entertain, Educate and Shop (can’t forget shopping!) with style and grace, and hopefully bring sparkling rays of sunshine to your day. Sharing exciting and noteworthy items with you daily is my goal.  This is a place where you’ll always be able to walk away with a little something. It’s about the sisterhood of women, black, white, pink or green, moving forward in their heels or flats; like the divas that you truly are.

Every day at 1pm this quote pops up on my iPhone/iPad: I am bountiful, I am blissful, I am beautiful –  Tell yourself that every day! I have a series of motivational quotes starting at 6 a.m. which pop up throughout the day to remind me of how blessed I am.

I also want to thank my new blog family, experienced and new, especially @thelookbookphilosophy and @beautypulselondon who embraced me early on.  Also thanks to my Instagram and Facebook friends for stopping by daily and supporting me, all of you always giving me words of encouragement.  I can’t thank you all enough for your likes, shares, and comments.  This blog is as much yours as it is mine, that’s why I try to make it as interactive as possible.

Please try to remember, no matter how bad things get… you will come through, you will rise to go unto bigger and better things… I did!

Have God in your life, through Him, all things are possible!!

Much love & light!



Run The Day…

Practice The Power of Positive Thinking

I thought I’d give you a little treat since its hump day and send you a second post.  There is a spiritual and uplifting blog that I follow daily titledPositive Thoughts”.   I follow them via Facebook and Twitter.  If you’re looking for a positive lift each day, this is the place to go.  I love it;  it’s one of the first things I read to help me through my day.  Today I found this little gem of a poem, which I copied from their Facebook page.  Life really can be this simple.

Happy Hump Day!

Refuse to be unhappy; be cheerful instead.

Refuse to let your troubles multiply; just take them one by one.

Refuse to complain about things; learn to improve your surroundings

and create your world the way you believe it should be.

Refuse to dwell on the mistakes or disappointments

that are sometimes a part of life;

instead learn how you can make things better.

Be optimistic.

Be energetic and positive about the things you do,

and always hope for the best.

Believe in yourself at all times and in all aspects of your life.

Before you know it , those wonderful dreams

you have believed in all your life will come true,

and your life will be the happy and successful life

that it was meant to be.
