Trust Yourself

Sometimes there is that feeling you just can't explain.  The one that screams at you from inside telling you if something feels right or wrong, good or bad.  It can be a scary feeling:  one that throws you out of your comfort zone, one that tells you to be truthful to yourself.  You may tell yourself you are being silly and talk yourself out of it.  Never close your mind to your intuition.

I have opened my mind and heart to allowing myself to jump head first for my passions and it has helped me be happy, served me, rewarded me. 

I've made mistakes, like going into business with the wrong type of people:  I should've listened to my gut, but I learned a valuable listen and when the voice screamed so hard to make my way out, I ran through the door.  I did and I'm happier. 

My intuition has led me to where I am today and it's a pretty good life.  Do you want the same?  Image from Told You So.

Interiors: Bicycle on the Wall

Nothing sounds better right now than a breezy afternoon cycle around the neighbourhood, looking at the city in near-rain light and appreciating life and its simple pleasures. 

With commercialised, instant and high speed entertainment becoming a thing of the past, people are searching for quality experiences that slow down life and give them a moment to breathe in the fresh air.  Having a bicycle is becoming trendy for this reason.  Apart from giving one the anytime chance to take a leisurely ride around the block, bicycles are also a bringer of aesthetics to the household.  

Here are some ideas of beautiful ways to hang up your bike!

Bicycles are beautiful, take yours' out of the garage and hang it on a wall. That will be my summer project!

Places: Cape Town Blues

Cape Town is not like any other place.  Every where you look, there is beauty to be seen.  While we all know that this mostly revolves around the picturesque Table Mountain, there are many other breath taking natural and urban features to the mother city.

We visited in August to attend our friends' wedding and had a mini vacation of just under a week touring, eating, meeting friends and soaking up the West Coast. Here are some of my favourite snapshots of the beautiful places we saw, urban and natural.

Cape Town is a beautiful city.  If you visit South Africa, you would be missing out if you didn't go.  Please visit Gauteng as well!  Plenty to see, plenty to love <3

Hope you're having a great week friends!

October Desktop Wallpaper (free download!)

I love Spring, and to be honest, who doesn't?  Flowers, greenery and new life with perfect weather is a wonderful reminder of rejuvenation and a great time to experience change. 

With a bit of Spring cleaning needed for my laptop, I decided to make myself a brand new desktop wallpaper that doubles up as a quick reference calendar.

I used floral elements from Design Cut and combined this with some excellent type and a charcoal grey background.


I hope this adds some brightness and cheer to the rest of your month.

To use the wall paper, save the image above, right click and use as a desktop wallpaper.  There you have it!  Please share with friends if you love it!
