Hey, its ok

…to shove it in your closet and consider your place cleaned.

….to take every single personal day, holiday and sick day that you are entitled to.

….to discover all your new music courtesy of “The Hills”

…to secretly hope that your exes consider you the one that got away….

….to find the word “panties” totally creepy.

…to consider riding a swing a form of cardio

…to correct people who mispronounce your name.

…to push your sunglasses up on your head and consider it a hairstyle

…to act all “candid” when someone pulls out a camera.

…to think the fireworks were a wee bit excessive. Ooh, ahh, how many small countries could that have fed?

…to ask for chicken on your vegie burger

…to not change out of your pajamas

…and its ok to be ok with the things that are ok. Life is what it is and its too short to not be the real you.


Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, although given that it is only 11:29pm on Wednesday night, I am a tad early. I like the concept of thanksgiving, maybe even more than Christmas. I think it is important to take a step back sometimes and realise just what you have and be thankful for it.
I am thankful for-

1. My family.
2. My friends.
3. My vintage Chanel bag
4. Suitcases on wheels
5. That I have found someone 15cm taller than me, allowing me the option of heels
6. Mixed CD’s
7. My passport
8. Shelly
9. Rice pudding
10. Diet coke with lime
11. Card games.
12. 2 arms, 2 legs, 10 fingers and 10 toes
13. Skype
14. The post office
15. That I am slowly learning not to stress the small stuff.
16. That the sun will still rise tomorrow
17. That life is what you make of it.
18. Morning emails.
19. My Revlon eyebrow pencil
20. Black&white photographs.
21. That I am the only person who has the ability to be me and do it well.

The list could go on and on…

What are you thankful for?



L Train.

Confused tourist: Excuse me, I want to take the red line.
Confused New Yorker: You needed to get off at the last stop.
Confused tourist: No, I got on at last stop. Want to take the red train.
Confused New Yorker: Yes, you needed to get off at the last stop.
Confused tourist: But I’m not going to that stop.
Confused New Yorker: No, you aren’t.
Confused tourist: How do I get on red line?
Confused New Yorker: Help me!

10 things I learnt this week

1. Apparently I snore… (words that every woman loves to hear)
2. GHD’s are way better than other flat irons.
3. Carbs are way essential to a good life.
4. Travelling is good for the soul.
5. Travelling with a good friend is even better.
6. An afternoon nap can save the day.
7. A positive attitude brings positive things to you.
8. M.A.S.H is still a good TV show.
9. I’m definitely a winter girl. For me, there is something inspiring and soul searching about cold, gloomy, rainy weather.
10. When you are truly, freely unashamed to be yourself, you give permission for others to be who they are. Let your freak flag fly people!

Happy Friday

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
