If You Can Dream It Blah, Blah, Blah

Good Morning kitty cats! I’m sure if you have ever been on any social media, you will have seen many inspirational quotes about making your dreams a reality. You know the sort of stuff “dream it, do it” “dream big” etc, etc. But how to turn those wishes in reality? The book “The Secret” was a big proponent of putting out positive thoughts to the universe and then the universe would send it back to you, hmmm, I’m not entirely sure. 

I am persuaded by the concept of the wish board, where you pin pictures, quotes or anything that relates to your wishes, I think by doing so you make those wishes more real and then you inevitably take steps to achieve them ( no magic required). Here’s mine…….


So let’s start at the bottom with the rainbow semi circle and go roughly anti clockwise! ….

Wish 1: meditate more, this is a screen shot from the Buddhify app and I need to get back in the habit! It helps me focus and therefore achieve more.

Wish 2: Marks and Spencer’s Hollywood Deco china, just because! It’s the colour of a Laduree shop and therefore belongs in my macaron themed kitchen!

Wish 3: jazzy ankle boots! Now this wish means I will have to lose weight and get on medication that works for my arthritis, so it’s really 3 wishes in one!

Wish 4: Barre fit class, I’m desperate to do one, and again meds will have to change, but who knows if they work I will be buying that tutu.

Wish 5: Gemporia’s bridge rings ( tiny picture) they are a bargain and I would like lots!

Wish 6: Mollie Makes but specifically the cover kit, it is my dream to be the designer of one of those and as soon as I have a suitable design I will be submitting it.

Wish 7: multiple piercing, I want a pretty, teeny extra piercing in my ear.

Wish 8: an old fashioned, velvet button back sofa, this one is from good old Marks and Sparks!

Wish 9: “Meet Etsys Brightest Stars” self explanatory really, I want to be one!

Wish 10: Helen Mirren! No I don’t want to be her, but I would like to grow old in a glamorous way, however more importantly I want to grow old, if you have had cancer you lose your faith in immortality, so I need to get that faith back by taking the very best care of myself.

Writing this post has really focuses my mind and made me realise how much of what I want hinges on me taking care of myself! To that end I undertake to check in on this boards progress in the blog post on 31.12 who knows how far I will get?

Have you got a wish list? I’d love to hear it!

Kisses

This Week I’ve Mainly Been….

Hiya kitty cats! who here remembers the Fast Show? there was that character that used to emerge from his shed all scruffy and say something daft like “this week I have mainly been modelling in Milan”. Well, heres my “this week I have mainly been” …..

I have been wearing Autograph by Marks and Spencer all in one nail varnish……….

It has been an absolute miracle, formulated with argan oil and vitamin E, it is base coat colour and top coat all in one! perfect for straight from work glamour or when the perfect mum invites you for coffee after school run! heres a picture of my nails 3 days in…..

Try and ignore the Arthritic fingers, the nails are just losing a little colour on the edge, but for a dark colour I think its great!

I have also been reading this……..

I was transfixed by the television series and thought I would give it another go after failing to finish it the first time. I’m pleased to say that I’m finding it great the second time around.

I have been enjoying Hyacinths……

The smell that fills the house , their delicate blue colour and its just happy coincidence that these plus my lump of rose quartz are the Pantone colours of the year- Serenity and Rose Quartz.

On the subject of quartz, I’ve also been reading this……….

As conventional medicine is not exactly my friend at the moment, I thought this would be a harmless bit of research. Besides crystals are nice to have around the house!

I have been also deliriously happy with this foundation…….

This is Tarte foundation (no sniggering), not routinely available in the UK I picked this up at QVC, it is marvellous, non drying for my sahara like skin and not aggravating to its Methotrexate sensitivity. Its not cheap, the set above-foundation,concealer and dual brush cost around £30 but you use such a little amount I’m hoping its going to prove economic.

Its my avowed intention to get the sewing machine out this week so wish me luck!

Have a great week
