Just Be Happy…

It’s been a hectic and extremely demanding last couple of weeks {my blog post about the Pink concert two weeks ago is still in draft!}.  I hope you had a beautiful and blessed Thanksgiving day, and since you’re probably completely stuffed from all that food, you’re now detoxing until Christmas, where we’ll do it all over again!

I was talking to a girl friend of mine, and she introduced me to the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, which is from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. My friend has been listening to this song to start and end her day and swears it keeps her in a good mood.  I have to say when I first heard it, I repeated it about 4 or 5 times, there is just something so catchy and “happy” about it, it makes you want to dance around the house like I did when I heard it.  Plus it doesn’t hurt, that I think Pharrell’s quite handsome to boot!

So if you’re feeling a little low, here’s Pharrell’s Happy to perk you up!

An Inspirational Moment…

In Daily Musings on November 19, 2013 at 10:17 am

Good morning Darlings! I’ve posted this quote before, but I found it fitting to re-post today.

successful

Never allow anyone, to try to remove your crown and throw you off your throne.  YOU ARE QUEEN

I’m sharing this link to an inspirational quote, posted by Joyce Meyer this morning, which was shared by a good friend today.  It was the second timely quote my friend shared with me just this morning; both quotes were so on point, they inspired me to write this post.  It’s amazing how timely certain messages come into your life.  Thank you Ms. J.

Maylana’s message: Be inspired by the bricks that may be thrown at you, continue building your firm foundation, and remember….  Stand your ground and have absolute Faith!

Have an Amazing, Fabulous and Truly Blessed Day!

Hi Darlings! This was originally written as yesterday’s post, but we had to celebrate Ms. Celia Cruz’s birthday. I hope you had a wonderful weekend, I know I did.  I got so much done, I feel the weekend went by a little too quickly!  Give thanks for this glorious new week, because it signifies new beginnings; which brings you one step closer to fulfilling all of your dreams, and accomplishing your goals.

On a different note, did anyone see the TLC movie last night? I didn’t as I did not get in until very late.  I have heard, through friends, and social media, that it was a pretty good docudrama {though there were also the usual criticisms}, which stayed true to the essence of TLC’s biography.  I’ll have to try to catch it on Video on Demand.  What are your thoughts on the movie?

Enjoy your week, stay fabulous, stay chic, and remember…

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♥

Monday Love…

In Daily Musings on July 15, 2013 at 10:13 am

 

Happy Monday

Hi Darlings! Aren’t you happy that Monday is here again?  It’s a new week to start over, complete what you started last week, to begin anew.  Don’t look at Monday as a downer, look at it as a bright and shiny new beginning.

The above photograph was taken by me, of the much underrated Carnation. The Carnation is inexpensive and easy to come by, and is mocked for her cheapness.  But one thing about this beautiful flower, is she’s more hearty than the other more expensive flora we like to buy {you can easily get 10 or more days out of her}, available year round, and comes in an array of colours, which compliments any décor.  Just because she’s cheap, doesn’t mean she’s not beautiful♥

Boss Friday…

Boss

Hi Darlings, Happy Friday!  This week has seemed exceptionally long to me, but I think it’s because of the short week last week, which also seemed long.

This quote really inspired me today, and as I quoted on my Facebook page,”My crown is straightened! It’s Boss Friday!” because this is how I truly feel today.   I hope your gorgeous crown is  straightened too, stand tall Darlings.

Today is a bit of a dreary day, with lots of rain, due to the hurricane coming up from down south, but it’s needed, so no complaints here.  Below is my 2nd creation, using my Bazaart app, I need to start naming my pieces, just in case they make me famous. 🙂

Bazaart 2 - edit

I’d love to wish you a Fabulous and Beautiful weekend, get lots done, and make whatever you do count!

Hi Dahhlings… Here we are again, another Monday, even though it’s trying to snow here, it’s still a beautiful day.  I’m feeling so much better after my sluggish week last week; my body has finally caught up to the Daylight Savings Time change 🙂

I had a great weekend; I created a couple of my flower hats in spring/easter colours, as well as sorting and organizing myself, both mentally and physically.  It was a recalibration of sorts!  I’m still reading “The Secret” which has been a fantastic source of inspiration for me.  As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, this is my second time reading it, which has been much more fulfilling then the first time around.  I’m coming to the end and I plan to re-read it all over again!

 

Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type

Last week I received my copy of Eat Right 4 Your Type, a book which was first published in 1997 by Dr. Peter J.D’Adamo.  The premise of the book is that due to our individual blood types, there are certain foods which are not conducive to our overall health and well-being.

My sister has been on this lifestyle food plan for approximately 6 years, and it truly has done wonders for her, she is testament to me, that it actually works.

The book explains the reasons why certain foods are not good for us, and guides you through the process of eliminating them.  to learn more, click here.  I’ll keep you up to date on my progress.  Click on the image or red link above to be taken to the Amazon website to order yours.

Have yourselves a Creative, Positive and Amazing week!

A Very Chilly Wednesday…

It is truly a chilly day here in Washington, DC, but the sun is shining brightly, and all is right with the world.  I hope you’re having an amazing day and that your day is being productive and successful.  My posts have been a little sparse lately because I’ve got so much on my plate, but I promise to start getting my thrice weekly posts back on track.

Calvin Klein Boots 2013

Speaking of chilly weather, I’m in love with these Calvin Klein boots from his A/W 2013 collection.  These are the boots to wear when you’re not in the mood for your 4″ wonders, and need to move about town quickly! I love the square-toed platform and 2″ stacked heel.  These are a pair to watch.

Well Dahhlings, we’re half way through this short week, be good to yourselves and stay inspired.  Here’s a quote for your day, “To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong” ~ Joseph Chilton Pearce.  I’ll see you soon.
