In the Bedroom

Sadly I haven’t been feeling well the last couple of days. As with all things Wintry, all sorts of viral infections have reared their heads and I’ve succumbed. Cue a temperature, sore throat and aching limbs. Now, I know I can be a *little* dramatic on occasion, but yes I don’t do illness well. I want pampering, fuss and love. Heck, I want to be curled up in bed with toasty warm toes. So don’t mind me if I head back to bed. This bedroom scene is just too cozy to ignore x

Good morning my lovelies. Or is it afternoon? Or evening? Who knows. The only thing constant is change and that time moves onward. If you have time today why not check out my gorgeous new outfit at FaMESHed or perhaps discover something new for your home? Then once you’re done, curl up on the sofa with a drink and enjoy ……. calm. Bliss xxx

Lazy Lounge wear

This is definitely my mood today….and probably tomorrow too. Sadly, not the day after as I go back to work after two weeks off 😥 Ahh well, I guess all good things must come to an end, although I could happily take another week off work to relax. Christmas is a busy time as we have a lot of rl birthdays and an anniversary. Yes, it’s lovely to skip the 6am wake ups, but it isn’t a restful time of year. Ok, I need to stop grumbling and enjoy these last two days of freedom! I hope you have a lovely weekend x

Spread some Joy

As we approach Christmas shut down at my rl workplace, it’s fun to start seeing people wind down and get into a festive mood. We have a Christmas tree decorating contest running this week and while my department hasn’t a hope of winning, I had so much fun decorating our tree yesterday. Cue fake dollar bills and chocolate gold coins with our senior manager’s face on it. Yes, I work in a Finance department! I hope you get a chance to spread some joy and receive some too over the next few weeks. It can get hectic, but I also hope there are moments of calm x

The Hot Chocolate Bar

We all have those moments. Sweet tooth moments. I spent most of my working day fantasising about having a big mug of hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows. I was determined to head out and grab one, but no…the weather was too much of a deterrent. Maybe another day.

However, I’ll definitely need something hot to keep me toasty in this little winter outfit. As my mother would say “you’ll freeze your kidneys in that outfit!” But it’s so cute, I can’t resist. Ahhh the benefits of a pixel Winter – I can still expose myself and not feel the cold. But I am now *determined* to get that hot chocolate….and a donut too….or maybe a muffin. Perhaps a cookie. Heck, all of em 😉

Me and My Boys

What can I say? I guess I was in a ‘Festive Gangsta’ mood when I did this photo. It clearly shows that I fail at doing *anything* in a credibly sinister way; even when I’m trying to look rough, I can hear you saying “awww isn’t she cute? coochie coo!” Pfft. Me and my boys are gonna rough you up. Make you eat yellow snow. Generally do nasty stuff, like make you tea without any sugar in it. Because we’re mean….and nasty 😉

Card Games

All card games are games of chance, one way or another. There’s always an element of probability involved as you shuffle and cut the deck. Then you begin to play. You may win. You may lose. You may become frustrated and stop. But, you always play. That’s the key thing. You take that chance. You run that risk of failure to try and succeed. I read a brilliant quote yesterday “be brave enough to fail at something new”. It resonated because failure is a temporary state if you keep trying, but if you don’t try then it becomes permanent. Don’t let that fear control who you are. Play the game. Be brave. Embrace what comes your way and live ❤
