“There is a shade of red for every woman”, Audrey Hepburn ❤️. Good afternoon! A late start for us today because Zack and I stayed up until 5am just talking 🙈. I love nights like those so much and there’s no one I’d rather have them with but I’m a bit tired today! #igersleicester
Prickly but cute 🌵✨👋🏽 • •
Made my lil plant baby from @plantshopyyc a new planter a little while back, and had to snap a photo with this boho Amazonite stunner!
Zoom to check out that bubbly texture on the ring 🤤😍.
Guys this is my lucky scarf, I wore it 6yrs ago when I went to my interview with suncorp, I wore it on my first day, and I wore it 3yrs ago when I went back to work after having Amelia and Imogen.
I dont put a lot of stock in superstition, BUT today I wore my green scarf, and I had the best day! One chapter ends and another begins👑
Maybe its mind set, maybe this scarf is LUCKY🍀 Who knows!! Who else has a lucky something lucky they carry with them on important days, or says a special prayer before a big event?
There are so many different aspects to running your own business. Sitting down to weave all the aspects of my client’s dreams and desires into their perfect piece of jewellery is one my favourite parts of the job. Each brief is different, each piece designed especially to suit the style, personality and essence of each client. Personal, timeless and uniquely, beautifully you.

Um.... yes please!! Boundaries are everything and I am getting waaayyy better at this. It’s all learning.
My phone stays on silent, I rarely take a call unless it has been scheduled, and I control my day - rather than being a slave to my phone.
You’re the only one who can put boundaries in place - no one is going to do it for you.
And I believe the sooner the better
We have a few spots left for our Spiritual Healing workshop on Sunday with @iamellesteele. The details are in stories. Check them out and get in touch if you would like to join us. We would love to see you ✨
When you use photos on your website, your social media or your ads, your message needs to be reflected in your images.
One way to do that is with the details in your photos.
The things you love, find interesting or funny, or are inspired by, are all a part of who you are.
Infuse your vibe into every little nook of your visual brand.
I bet I am not the only one who always has another task to check on a long to-do list, another email to send and one to respond to, flat to clean, bill to pay, invoice to send out and make that long lasting call to my grandma, that I so often forget to do.
We are constantly bombarded by the “go, go, go culture”, by inspirational quotes sent to us by people we follow. “Work hard, be productive, you will rest when you die …”.
I stopped playing this game two years ago. It was the last chance before I would get seriously hit health wise. Every now and then I find myself in the same old loop, when I need to take drastic actions. I am in this period now.
The last two months have been hectic to say the least. Some of it was my own doing, some was the result of what was happening (and is still happening) to people I hold closest to my heart. And IT SUCKS big time.
At times like these it’s so much more important to reconnect with myself, leave the crazy day-to-day madness and take a big breath. I try to do that every day, sometime successfully, sometime not so much. And I live for weekends away from computer and emails and to-do lists. There will always be things left to do, but there is always tomorrow or next Tuesday after the holiday weekend. And that’s important to know. .
So where are you off to this weekend? 💦
💖🦕💖 #OrbitTheDragon 's crochet along starts TOMORROW!!!! Click the link in my profile to join in and make your own magical baby dragon!
Part 1 of the pattern will be released at midnight SAST (South African time) on my website - that's in about 12 hours from now.
Are you ready? 🤗
Suffering and frustration come from our difficulty in facing the basic fact of life that everything around us is impermanent and transitory. Rich or poor, average or gifted, all life is subjected to the following: the trauma of birth, the pathology of sickness, the fear of physical and mental degeneration, the phobia of death, karmically to be tied to what one distastes, or to be separated from what one loves. "All things must arise and pass away." .
The cause of suffering and frustration occurs because out of ignorance, we divide the perceived world into individual and separate things. The desire to pull apart from the rest of life and seek fulfillment for the separated self, at the expense of all other forms of life, causes suffering to the whole, as Life is One Being. Our duty to our brothers and sisters is to understand them as extensions, other aspects of ourselves, as fellow facets of the same reality.
3. Suffering and Frustration Can Be Ended
If the cause of life’s suffering is those inclinations which tend to continue or increase separativeness, in fact all forms of selfish craving, then its cure lies in the overcoming of such cravings. If we can be released from the narrow limits of self-interest into the vast expanse of universal life, we will be free of our torment.
The overcoming of desire is through substitution of the personal wants with divine inclinations.
4. The Eightfold Path to Enlightenment
The way out of our captivity is through the Eightfold Path to Enlightenment:
Right Understanding leads to Wisdom
Right Aspiration leads to Divine Inclination
Right Speech leads to Truth and Understanding
Right Behavior leads to Goodwill
Right Livelihood leads to Sharing
Right Effort leads to Highest Outcome
Right Mindfulness leads to Purposeful Living
Right Absorbtion leads to Unity
In these simple words Buddha teaches us to shine our light, and find peace. . .
