Weekly Gratitude List – Feelings Are Gross

Happy Friday! I hope you’re enjoying your day – I have the day off, and I’m sitting in the sunniest spot of my bedroom, so my weekend’s off to a good start (we’re flying to Auckland later today, so I figured I’d need to take some time off to pack and get a few things sorted before we left).

This Wednesday was our first wedding anniversary (I know this post is late, and I had intended on posting this then, but ended up needing a nap after our hot anniversary dinner – jerk chicken if you were wondering, SO spicy), so this week’s gratitude list isn’t going to be a this awesome thing happened this week kind of post, and will be a feelings are gross, I am incredibly lucky one instead (sorry if I made you want to spew in your mouth).

Instagram Roundup

Happy Sunday! I hope you’re all having a great weekend, I’m a bit bored and a little stressed at the moment, but that’s not really new is it? I’m so happy that it’s a long weekend, but also not, because work has started to get busy again, and short turnarounds for certain jobs is stressing me out. Apparently, I just smile it away though, which is a good thing? I guess?

Anyway, I have decided I’m going to post regular instagram round ups; I’m thinking weekly at this stage, but I’m not sure. My day-to-day life isn’t very exciting and I usually only post between 3 – 5 pictures a week; hardly enough to warrant a weekly feature, but we’ll see.

I’ll also be posting pictures from my instagram feed that I love, because sharing is caring, right? Also, because I follow some pretty awesome people and you should check them out.

But what love got to do with it when I don’t love myself?


I recently came across a blog post I wrote three years ago; it was about how I’d realised that if I wanted to be truly happy I need to love myself (liking myself at that point would have been a good starting point to be honest).

At that point in time, I was filled with so much self doubt, and it seemed like every set back reaffirmed one of the narratives I have played for as long as I can remember:”I’m not good enough”  Continue reading →

“This life is fantastic, It’s easy, It’s hard, It’s intense, It’s young, and on and on and on…”

music monday

Without getting into anything, today was nowhere near as bad as I thought it was going to be. I had been stressing all weekend, and was all up. It’s the first day of a long week, but if today is anything to go by, it won’t be anywhere near as bas as I was expecting.

For this week’s Music Monday, I wanted something that reflected how stressed I had been, and how today has turned out okay. I didn’t want anything cheesy though, as much as I love Pocketful Of Sunshine (mainly because of Emma Stone in Easy A, which I need to watch again) by Natasha Bedingfield, it’s a bit too much sometimes

While going through iTunes earlier, I found a playlist I made called Cheer The Fuck Up! (I think it’s safe to say I was pretty depressed when I made that playlist, and completely over it/myself) and found Life Is Good by DJ Deckstream featuring Mos Def, it’s just what I needed.

And never mind stress
Just do your best
So plain, so sweet and it hit me so deep with all the blues in the news, that’s news that I need

Mid Week Gratitude List

I’m, not gonna lie, coming up with things I’m grateful for this past week has been a bit of a struggle. I’ve been so busy/stressed this past week that I’ve been forgetting to write things down in the notebook, and when I’ve remembered to do it, I’ve forgotten what’s happened.  Continue reading →
