This is a post I wrote back in May.  It’s very timely for me at the moment and I hope it is for you too.  It’s just a gentle reminder that we must always take care of ourselve.

“Life Is A Song Worth Singing” This is the title from one of my favourite Teddy Pendergrass albums.  Life truly is worth singing! 

Happy Sunday to you… Mwah 🙂

It’s Friday!!!! Time to kick up your heels, and celebrate the weekend.

Here are a 10 things you should do for yourself this weekend.  Pick a few or better yet do them all. You’ve got 2 days!!

  1. Buy yourself some flowers or an orchid plant
  2. Treat yourself to a mani/pedi and if it’s not in the budget do it yourself.
  3. Give yourself a facial, your skin will love you for it. (click link for homemade recipe)
  4. Treat yourself to a quality glass of wine or better yet champagne and if you don’t drink pour some sparkling cider in your best champagne flute and toast yourself for being such a fantastic person.
  5. Go to Barnes & Noble or any bookstore and treat yourself to a good book; here’s one for you, Roots of Style” by Isabel Toledo
  6. Take a walk.  Just walk around the neighbourhood.  2 things will happen here; (a) you’ll get some exercise and (b) you may just notice something you never noticed before.  If you live in a boring neighbourhood, drive/walk somewhere, where there’s scenery and walk there (no excuses).
  7. Buy or download the Anthony Hamilton cd “Back to Love” you’ll be glad you did.
  8. Buy or download the new Estelle cd, “All of Me“, you’ll be glad you did that too.
  9. Instead of having breakfast at home on Sunday, get dressed, find somewhere cute and go out for brunch, let someone else cook for a change
  10. Sunday night take a luxurious bubble bath, with your glass of champagne/sparkling cider, and the book you bought, then relax and think about how wonderful you are, and how much you’re looking forward to the brilliant and blessed week ahead of you.

Have a fabulous weekend Chicas!

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!

Mwah!!
