Oh it's a bangle Christmas!



With my light brown eyes,
 the colour of first quality Greek honey, 
I covet this morning this beautiful bangle. 
Santa, baby, will you write it on the list
Pleeease?

The 5-Step French Girl Workout With Model Caroline de Maigret



In Paris, there is no better gym than the street, no better sport than life itself. And though the French girl “workout” includes all of the same criteria as its American counterparts, it comes with a few minor adjustments, as demonstrated by stylist and model Caroline de Maigret.

Olympic tablescape





I always am on the lookout for trully innovative, inspirational, driven by good taste 
products for the home. 
As the French say:
"Le bon goût donne meilleur goût"
So I covet these plates inspired by Greek Antiquity.
Not your usual "souvenir" and a pride to use in any setting, modern or classical!
A future classic from
Sophia-Enjoy Thinking 
I found it on line at UK based
 BORN

Enjoy your momment of Olympic Glory,
xoxo

Where does your cash go? (FREE tools!)

“Where Attention goes Energy flows;
Where Intention goes Energy flows!”
― James Redfield


Where does my cash go?

With a teen boy at home and two girls in College, I am on a quest to make every euro count and possibly even stretch
to meet my personal needs!

Plus,
with a demanding job where image counts, I need to look AND  feel pulled together. 
This term, I know I won't be renewing my Gym subscription (it didn't work enough to justfy the spending of my hard earned cash)
Walking daily will have to do, 
plus 
I am looking to start dancing again! It's a kind of exercise I enjoy (and do not loath!)
Massages will have to be programmed to one-per-month to help me destress 
and feel good in my skin.

But
I am investing in a good face line, by LANCOME,
probably towards Xmas
(more to come on my quest for cosmetics to fit my 40something skin)

So,

Where do YOUR cash go?

Reading this article
"How to track your income to create more abundance",
by self-made millionaire Denise Duffield-Thomas made me think. Alot.

I understood that I had to THINK differently and ACT differently.
 Denise offers all the tools 

FREE 

So,
to help you put those valuable FREE resources into good use
and come back and leave a comment to share your progress.
 I will!

Monday Visualization: White spaces








I am in that space in between summer and winter. 
Last week I bought some orange and gold pillows that I'm going to show to you soon.
But for now, 
I am dreaming of clean and orderly,
comfort and creativity.

What does your summer/winter transit look like?

30 Day Journal Project -Day 10


Your life is the ultimate work of art.

Today’s Journal Prompts:

I live my life creatively by… taking art dates, writing, experimenting, taking my work forward, challenging myself.
Living my life creatively is brave because… it faces resistance from those who are afraid of me changing, developping, going forward
The creative place that is unique to my experience… is time alone, being in touch with my body, acknowledging my feminine side
I’ve never seen or heard of anyone… regretting living life authentically

(From here)



30 Day Journal Project -Day 9



I believe one has to stop holding back for fear of alienating some imaginary reader or real relative or friend, and come out with personal truth
Lunches are just not good. They take the heart out of the day and the spaciousness from the morning’s work.
I often feel exhausted, but it is not my work that tires (work is a rest); it is the effort of pushing away the lives and needs of others before I can come to the work with any freshness and zest.
May Sarton, Journal of a Solitude

Keeping a journal that is just for you is a sacred act. It creates a sacred place where you can begin telling the truth about what makes you happy, what you love, what turns you on, what you want more of, less of.

Today’s Journal Prompts:

If I dared to be myself, I’m afraid… I might end up lonely, poor, unloved
If I dared to be myself, I’m excited… that I may be happy, fulfilled, accomplished, successful
When I dare to be myself, it’s strange… how others learn to accept me, appreciate and love me
When I dare to be myself, this kind of genius emerges… that propells me forward, finding who i am, who i really am, who i have always been, who i want to be.
