Planning To Procrastinate

May 28, 2017

It seems like an oxymoron doesn’t it? But I swear I actually make a plan to do something in advance, knowing full well that I am most likely going to procrastinate like a BOSS once the time arrives to follow through with it. And I do feel like procrastination is different to laziness somehow? (that’s the excuse I’m going with anyway) I wouldn’t necessarily classify myself as a lazy person, but more like a distracted person (haha I guarantee when my husband…

The Hamster Wheel

January 28, 2017

Monotony Definition: a lack of variety and interest; tedious repetition and routine. ‘You can become resigned to the monotony of captivity’ Some of us thrive off it, yet others cringe at the thought. Some day’s for me, the sheer volume of everyday chores I find myself tangled up in is enough to send me to the looney bin. The image that pops into mind is one of myself as a flat out little hamster. Running full speed ahead on my wheel, not realising that really,…

Is That Really Your Story?

January 7, 2017

The Social Media Highlight Reel The morning sun streaming in through our window, fresh hot coffee in hand, hearing our beautiful baby daughter chatting away to her toys – I am thankful. I am grateful. I am present. Yet amongst it all, a thought pops into my head… This would be a great Instagram moment. Immediately I am removed from my content moment of quiet, finding myself reach for my iPhone in attempt to capture the moment for my next post to…

May 2, 2016

There are a few everyday items that I have struggled to find a brand or version I like – but fret no more! I have found them! (until I find the next version… am I right?) Whether it’s the right dress for the right occasion, the perfect pair of shoes to match your extensively planned outfit or a…

A Great Start

April 2, 2016

What does your week look like? Do you ever find yourself beginning a week lacking all positivity, motivation & stability? (YES!) Well, I know exactly how you feel. As a dancer most of my life, I learnt the motto ‘It’s 100% or 0%’ (can be a good & bad principle). We were taught that you give your all, EVERY time! Whether you’re stepping onto a stage for a performance or into a classroom for rehearsal, you need to give it all you’ve got. When I think about…
