Bringing some Moroccan chic into your garden


Good morning folks

It’s a grey Monday morning in London but we won’t let that damned out spirits. I’m thinking gardening today on my day off work. I’ve been transported to somewhere exotic with a flavour of Morocco and these imagines just invoked some romantic gestures into my heart.

Dinner should never be boring

Outdoor dining should be enchanting. Lighting, cushions and flowers everywhere. Fine dining at its best with touches of home comforts. Sometimes we don’t appreciate the spaces we are fortunate to have in London. Having a garden is such a privilege in the urban jungle of concrete. Let your garden become your Santuary. Your place away from the hustle and bustle where you can be truly relaxed and enclosed in peace.

Lay down darling….Rest your head, put your feet up with a good read and a glass of Chardnay and enjoy some peace.

I love having some outdoor space it’s my place to run away from the world and the place the kids stay away from as I will ask them to do some gardening and they usually run a mile. So it’s mainly mine shared with two dogs and a couple squirrels. It’s my peace.

The ultimate outdoor waterfall shower

Now I don’t have one of these but it hit the spot! I think this is divine and bringing the indoors, outdoor is just such a wonderful idea if you have the weather for it. Bathing amongst Mother Nature can get better than this in the city. I think this is a wonderfully simple idea but one that can bring such peace and tranquillity to one outdoor space. This is definitely one to explore further.

Whatever you do today make it worthwhile, don’t waste this day, you won’t get another like it again. Do something your future self will thank you for .

Have a great week xoxo

Self Love isn’t Selfish


If you don’t take control over your time and your life, other people with hire you to take care of theirs.

Now let that just resonate in your mind for a moment. Think about that quote and read again if needed. It’s simply talking about ‘Self Love’ and filling your happiness cup.

I’m sure you are totally aware of how essential it is to take care of your mind body and spirit. I won’t lecture you on the pros and cons , but I will say this, work productively and efficiently; look after your well-being, your health is what holds things together. Your mental health being the most important as it shapes everything you think and do.

Stress and overwork will kill you eventually, this is the honest truth.Nothing like a breakdown to show you how strong you need to be to hold things together. But without good mental health that hold can easily slip. Practice self care, take a break from everything once in a while and re-focus. The mind is only as good as its holder. You can’t be successful without a good knowledge of self.

Develop techniques that will bring balance to to hectic days. Pause and take a deep breath before making hasty decisions; write stuff down and tick them off when accomplished and develop a good bedtime routine. Early nights does wonders for the skin, energy levels and focus.

Keep moving. Literally pick yourself up go outside and breathe. Moving around does wonders for focusing the mind whilst inducing endorphins into the body. Exercise to stretch muscles and gain more energy. Don’t stay stagnant all the time get the blood pumping and watch how much better you feel in minutes.

Just remember to take time out for you. You don’t need to explain it; you don’t need to make excuses for doing it but you need your own space in order to keep living a fulfilling and successful life.

Fill your soul with happiness, love and great friendships 🥰

I am really busy…


Well, it’s a lazy Sunday for me and the family. Everyone has isolated themselves into their corners. My son is arguing with fortnite with friends; the daughter is cooped up like a bird in her room and the dogs are snoring after a long walk in one of #londons enchanting woods.

Days really can’t get any better. Sometimes we need days of absolute nothing, ones that happen organically and have no really purpose other than to exist. Some days need to be spent in pure relaxation mode with spontaneous burst of excitement.

I hope you are using this day to re-charge those batteries; let the mind wonder on things at have no financial rewards but spiritual purpose. Be in the company of joyous souls, eat a good meal with loved ones or even alone, enjoy your time. Life shouldn’t always be chaos and hustle, sometimes we just need slippers and a good read.

A Sunday well spent brings a week of contentment

Continue this day in good form, prepare for the week ahead, pack your work bag, sort that killer outfit then sit back and watch an afternoon movie. Use the rest of today to fill your happiness and appreciate every moment.

Live, Love, Life xoxo

For Girls with Warrior Hearts…Perfect words of Love .


“Me and my mother go out for coffee. We are sitting at the table when I ask her, 
‘Do you think it’s possible to wake up one day and realize that you’ve stopped loving the person you spent the last two decades of your life with?’
She stops what she’s doing and she says, ‘It happens. Except it doesn’t happen the way you think it does.’
I take a sip from my coffee mug. 
‘Then how does it happen?’
‘It happens slowly. Just like it takes time to learn love, it takes time to forget it.’
‘How do you forget what you never had?’ She’s looking at me wide eyed now. 
I tell her, ‘If you wake up one day and realize that you have stopped loving, then you never really loved at all. Love doesn’t just become a past, and even for the many times it does, it is always a present too, you know? It’s the kind of thing you always carry around with you.’
I stop talking after that and my mother spills her coffee. Her hands are shaking and in her gaze, I know that she is trying to find the right words to tell me that love is fucked up like that sometimes. That I am right. That it stays, even when it can’t.
‘Whoever it is that you love, is going to be lucky. You’re going to do it right darling, and every single time after the first is going to be better, because when everyone else forgets you’re going to remember.’
She reaches over the table and takes my hands, ‘Love only hurts if you let it, so you might as well wear it like your favorite dress. It’s always going to look beautiful on you. Like maybe love was something made to fit girls with warrior hearts and bravery louder than their mothers, like yours- perfectly.’”

You are not half a person..see your full potential


“Do not love half lovers


Do not entertain half friends 


Do not indulge in works of the half talented


Do not live half a life and do not die a half death
If you choose silence, then be silent


When you speak, do so until you are finished 


Do not silence yourself to say something


And do not speak to be silent
If you accept, then express it bluntly


Do not mask it 
If you refuse then be clear about it 
for an ambiguous refusal 
is but a weak acceptance


Do not accept half a solution


Do not believe half truths


Do not dream half a dream


Do not fantasize about half hopes
 ,Half a drink will not quench your thirst
,Half a meal will not satiate your hunger


Half the way will get you no where


Half an idea will bear you no results


Your other half is not the one you love


It is you in another time yet in the same space


It is you when you are not


Half a life is a life you didn’t live, 
A word you have not said
, A smile you postponed 
,A love you have not had


A friendship you did not know
 

To reach and not arrive
 

Work and not work
 

Attend only to be absent


What makes you a stranger to them closest to you
 and they strangers to you


The half is a mere moment of inability 
but you are able for you are not half a being


You are a whole that exists 
to live a life not half a life.”
