Girls in pearls

Girls in pearls.

Saturday was a sad day as it was the memorial of a good friend who was such a special person.
.
The dress code was glam and colourful as the lunch party was to celebrate her life.
.
And so it was an orange and pearls day.
.
Everyone turned up wearing wonderfully bright and vibrant colours as she would have liked us to.
.
Life is so short and often so cruelly and abruptly ended, that we should make the most of every day that we are here.

Orange silk shirt from Zara 2017 season.
Versace-esque print pleated silk skirt from Zara Summer 2018 
Pearls from when I was 18 years old.
.
The collection of clothes in my eclectic wardrobe go back years and all get mixed and matched each season in brand new ways. .

#20yearchallenge

Appreciate your life and each day you're here. You never know what tomorrow brings.
.
Be grateful for your good health, your happiness, your family, and your 'inner' beauty whatever age,  body shape or size you are. .
We are all different and unique and that's what makes each and everyone special.
.
My photo was from 20 years ago ( so I must have been maybe in my early 40's as I'm now 64.  This was before filters and apps, but beautifully and flatteringly lit by the photographer. .
I know I didn't appreciate how I looked then and was certainly more critical of myself then than I am now in my old age. .
We all get older and should grow old gracefully or disgracefully if you prefer, whilst being your own person and not caring what others say or how they judge you- especially through social media. .

This video clip was taken of me when the weather was hot and sunny not torrential rain like today which means riding today was cancelled

It's so special horseriding along a beach. It makes you feel happy, blessed and so grateful to be healthy and well and lucky to be able to do such a thing.

As it’s now November I thought it’s a good idea to start thinking about all our Christmas wishes and what we would like to achieve or have in our lives in 2019 both personally and professionally

Apart from hoping Father Christmas will bring me what I have asked for, ...
I like to wake up with daily "gratitudes" for what I have already.
.
When you are grateful and positive I find the Universe often rewards you with more.
.
What do you think and what would you like? .

Sometimes we don’t take time to stop and look around us and appreciate being in the moment

Sometimes we don't take time to stop and look around us and appreciate being in the moment. Most of us are glued to our phones, reading texts, sending emails, checking our social media.
.
So whilst walking @misslucy_lou this sunny morning  I was practicing being mindful, grateful and appreciating the world around me.
.
 I came across this beautifully planted flower bed. So simple but so effective.
.
I thought it was quite magical, ethereal almost like Narnia with the old fashioned lamp post.
.
Perfect garden for a Halloween posting. .

Happiness

Happiness.
.
I help my 121 clients to be the best versions of themselves they can be.  But that doesn't mean they have to look perfect, live a perfect life or have a perfect relationship to be happy.
.
Happiness is a state of mind that is ever changing.  It's defined by the ups and downs in your life that create your happy moments. .
So for your happiness, don't compare and wish that you can achieve/ have what you see on others' Instagram posts. Your own happiness will be from your own life achievements and personal goals however small. .
