Isn't this just the most beautiful reminder ever .... 

'refuse to be average let your heart soar as it will - aw tozer'

This couldn't be truer than true today. I have this quote printed and stuck on a cork board next to my desk at one of the offices I work at... sometimes I forget it's even there. But this morning it just caught my eye again ... a reminder that we are anything but average; don't ever allow anyone or any situation make you feel any less 

After all .... You are extraordinary, you are made of stardust and the whole universe trembles at the sight of your delightful gaze...

This enlarged on canvas for my bedroom - good idea!

Just been absolute swooning over the website of the Indie Home Collective - an interiors and lifestyle concept store in Aukland - and oh my they just sound like such beautiful kind warm people!

No wonder all the imagery is beautifully styled and inspiring - effortlessly so indeed.  One rainy day when I finally make it over to NZ - and to be honest its not quite yet on the list, but it's soon to be - this place will be first stop... and oh my they're hiring!

I'm in love with this recycled jersey lampshade by AY Illuminate - yours for a mere 995 NZD
So head on over to their online shop or blog... but be sure to have a pot of tea and your bank card at the ready... I resisted thank heavens!

Happy Chinese New Year.... even if I'm just on the edge of still being within timings

Year of the Monkey

I would like to live this year without thinking of it as another year, but just living each day - as the only day that will ever count

Its a good habit off course to have goals and to make plans - yes, but to continuously live in that future dream can sometimes distort the realities we are creating in the here and now

More action and more dreams will come true

Cause its up to me and its up to you to go off and take that first step, make that leap of faith - grab each and every opportunity with all you have and make life happen!

Yay - and on that note, wishing you dreams that will start manifesting into your realities
Healthy lives and healthy minds and my any unwellness just keep moving along when they stop at your door
Friendships, love and yes always leave a trail of glittery sparkle wherever you go
Cause you're made of magic and stardust and have the whole universe in the stare of your eye....

Now this is one beautifully inspiring loungey bohemian space - just dreaming about laying there reading a book or chatting to some friends or just the act of being, not doing, not wanting, just contentment and being - that has inspired me and lifted my oh so dreary spirits today

Love the daybed
Love the exposed brick walls
Love the rugs
LOVE all the plants
Did I say I love the daybed?

Love it all

Full blog post and more pics to follow in the coming weeks
