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).
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.

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
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 →
