Red Hot Mamma

Nov 25, 2013

Are you a RED girl?

The thing is I am not.

The "reddest" I get is with
lipstick and nail polish

However, when the month of December
comes along, I start channeling
"Mrs Claus".

I suddenly want everything red,
even if it's to only wear for 1 month
of the year

This would be my perfect Christmas Day
What do you think?

red, black jewelry, stacking bangles

So do you wear red?
Only at Christmas?
All year round?

What about red lipstick?
Too va-voom?

Would love to hear from you

Romantic Lace

Nov 18, 2013

Hello Lovelies.

Well today's blog is all about the wonderfulness
of lace;a fabric which has been
known to exist from as far back as 
the 16th Century

black lace, lace top

Venice became one of  the most important 
trading centres of lace

Lace mantillas can still be seen being
worn in Catholic churches around the world.

In Spain it is still a common sight to see
women wearing black mantillas on Good Friday.
I am always amazed by the sight of the most
glamorous women walking to church on this day.

ELENA Pendant
Our Elena  pendant featuring Chantilly lace from 
the oldest lace-making house in Northern France; 
the same lace-making house used for the lace in Kate Middleton's 
wedding dress!
Also listed in Vogues "must-have" list 
There is also a heart version of this pendant

lace cuffs

Again like our pendant above, the cuff features Chantilly lace from 
the oldest lace-making house in Northern France; 
the same lace-making house used for the lace in Kate Middletons 
wedding dress!
Also listed in Vogues "must-have" list 

Whilst writing this post I realized
I don't actually own any lace clothing :-(

So are you a "lacey-lady"?
Do you love wearing lace?
Do you only wear it for special occasions/evening wear?

Would love to hear your thought as always

Time to Re-boot

Nov 8, 2013

Here's the thing Lovelies.

Things are taking off in my business
in a way I have been dreaming of 
(and planning for) for some time.

Plans are coming together.
Visualizations are
coming to fruition.

The stream called "momentum" is 
starting to flow quicker.

Ideas that have been simmering for
some time are coming to the boil.

But  guess what?
 I am shying away from everything.

It's ludicrous. It just doesn't
make sense.

I am subconsciously
stalling the process!!

People who know me know I 
am a goals-oriented "ninja".

And yet I am letting things slip.

I start working on my to-do list and
I happily get hijacked my Pinterest,
or YouTube or even doing my
taxes (that's a sure sign something
is wrong and that medication may
be required ;-)

I am not finishing anything.

I looked at my bedside table where I have
7 new books; all non-fiction.
I have got no further than chapter 5 in any of them.

And when I walked into my little study there is a box 
of new books that I just keep piling up; touching, smelling
caressing and putting back onto the pile that is now their home.

If you even asked me what I read last night
I wouldn't even be able to tell you, because whilst
reading I am thinking about all the things I 
"should" have done that day and didn't.
So I have to go back and re-read each chapter
(or should I start fretting about Alzheimers now?)

OK, I'll just add that worry to my list?

If I watch something on TV I literally "lose the
plot" because my mind goes off somewhere else
and invites me along for the ride.

It's a strange place to be as I have never been
so "flaky" before.

Am I afraid of failure?
If I don't move forward in the 
way  I am now being called too,
I can't fail. I can only stagnate.
But that's not the same……is it?

Or am I afraid of playing a bigger game
(something that has never frightened me before).
If I start playing bigger I will have to step
out from behind my computer, out of my sweats
and become more the face of my business; I
subconsciously don't want to do this.
I love the air of anonymity I get from
having an on-line business.

 I just know I have no head-space left
for anything.
I can't even make a simple decision
like what to have for breakfast!

 So this weekend I am going to do 
my version of vegetating

I am sure I would play better if I had these

I am going to have my golf lesson.
Anyone who knows
me knows I so do not fit the image of a 
golf player. 

However it was either become 
a golf-widow when I moved 
to a home in Spain on a golf-course,
or join the party

I am going to do yoga.

Watch TV for no reason but
just because I want too.

Remove all reading material
from my bedroom






And call my neglected friends.

I think it may take longer than
this weekend to "re-boot"
but it's a start.

Hubs has said even if my website
combusts I am not to do a thing about
it until Monday (a bit harsh I thought ;-)

ring, silver, gold, jewelry, winter jewelry

What are your plans this weekend?

Would love to hear how 
you maintain your head-space?
