Food for Thought

I wanted to share this poem below with you, because it signifies a new realm that I, and many of us are stepping into. I hope you get something from the words below.

The Awakening

A time comes in your life when you finally get it. When, in the midst of all your fears and insanity, you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out… ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying and blaming and struggling to hold on. Then, like a child quieting down after a tantrum, you blink back your tears and begin to look at the world through new eyes.

This is your awakening.

You realize it’s time to stop hoping and waiting for something to change, or for happiness, safety and security to magically appear over the next horizon.

You realize that in the real world there aren’t always fairy tale endings, and that any guarantee of “happily ever after” must begin with you… and in the process a sense of serenity is born of acceptance.

You awaken to the fact that you are not perfect and that not everyone will always love, appreciate or approve of who or what you are… and that’s OK. They are entitled to their own views and opinions.
You learn the importance of loving and championing yourself… and in the process a sense of new found confidence is born of self-approval.

You stop complaining and blaming other people for the things they did to you – or didn’t do for you – and you learn that the only thing you can really count on is the unexpected.

You learn that people don’t always say what they mean or mean what they say and that not everyone will always be there for you and everything isn’t always about you.

So, you learn to stand on your own and to take care of yourself… and in the process a sense of safety and security is born of self-reliance.

We as the human race naturally always want to feel like we are progressing, educating yourself is one way to keep your self challenged and moving forward constantly.

Juicy Jewellery | Earrings with edge!

Available at Net-A-Porter | £3,150

If your anything like me, you like style with a bit of edge. But don't necessarily want it permanently much like the false transfer tattoo trend...this is the earring for you! (and me!) 

I was shocked when I saw my little sister had pierced her upper lobe but often think this piercing looks quite nice when a tiny diamond stud is involved. 

Now, I don't have to pierce my ear to get the look! Thanks to Yvonne Leon graduate of Fashion school ESMOD, we have the solution in this 18 karat gold diamond creation.

Master your mind | An introduction

So, the Master your mind series is here...kind of. 

This is the 'initial introduction' to what I hope will be a journey whereby you and I grow, improve, achieve and acquire more. I talk a little about some of things I've done to get into a more elevated state of mind and suggest simple ways on how you can make a start on a successful climb to a better you. 

I would love to hear your feedback and thoughts.  

Lots of love,

Juicy jewellery | The Stephen Webster cuff

Stephen Webster Thorn stem, 18k rose gold cuff | £10,000 
Available at Net-A-Porter

Life works in weird ways...

Life works in weird ways. 

It teaches you lessons, it moulds you, it strengthens you. 

It puts you in a position that allows you to help others, to be more, do more and give more. 

The struggle, bad times and frustration teach you patience and birth humility. 

Your perseverance means, regardless, nothing will stand in the way of your success. 

If you need tools, you'll come across them exactly when you need them. 

The right books, the right people and the right opportunities. 

Once self-discipline is birthed, through the above...

Nothing is able to stand in your way. 

How can any voice tell you your a failure, if you strive for (and achieve) excellence in every area. 

That voice is an illusion by the way. 

You were an egg. A minuscule egg. The fact that you are alive today, a fully working human...that in itself is proof you have won. 

You are allowed the best of everything, the best that life has to offer. 

But you'll have tests. Its up to you to overcome those tests. 

Also its up to you to display resistance to anything negative that may want to latch onto you along the way...whether it be defeat, sadness, depression, bitterness, jealousy or anger. 

Thats the plan of the devil, even if you keep persevering, he will desperately try to get something, something negative to latch on to you. 

But never lose your spirit. Never lose your faith or your smile. 

Your joy and peace are waiting eagerly for you to claim them.

Decide that no matter what you come across, no matter how many trials you may face or times you my fail or feel that you weren't as good as you used to be or as good as you could be...

Tell yourself....

You're a Winner. A Conquerer. A King. A Queen. 
A Strong, beautiful, amazing, powerful, fearless, loving, patient and self disciplined individual who will stop at nothing, not one thing to claim all that God has set before you. 

Yours sincerely,

Trendspotting vs Bag Beauty | Chloe Drew Bag

As soon as I laid eyes on this bag, I knew it was mine (in my head), I knew it would be a hit and quite frankly it was beautiful. Small, cute and sleek. Not like many of the side bags I'd seen out and about. This Chloe bag actually made me consider the notion of a 'side bag' as I'm more of a clutch or handbag girl...there is no in between, you know?

So this an exception, and it looks amazing alongside stacked jewels and clean cut clothes. 

Available at Liberty and other popular luxury retailers!
