Can you remember the last time someone bought you flowers and how it made you feel? I bet a lot of women can remember the first time they ever received them. For me, there is nothing that says love, appreciation, congratulations, romance, condolences or thoughtfulness like flowers.
Let me start this blog post by saying that we have ALL made mistakes. Some of them are catastrophic mistakes (like the time I decided to cut my own fringe in Singapore), and others are minor misdemeanours (like wearing matching overalls to the shopping centre with your best friend). Either way, when I look back over the years of my life in terms of fashion revolutions, there are some epic face-palm moments.
The last time I put a recipe post up on the blog, it went over a treat, so I thought I might make it a more regular thing. Be prepared though- if you are watching this space waiting for dinner ideas or lunch inspiration, you’re going to be disappointed. I have a massive sweet tooth, so when I get busy in the kitchen it’s usually for desserts.
I’d like to think that my friend Bethany and I are pretty prolific Instagram stalkers. She’s that one friend that is constantly tagging me in or sending pictures of hilarious and relatable or memes, or photos that are, as someone ten years younger than me might say, “goals”.
I’m always up for something new and different. It’s easy to get complacent in your day-to-day routine, to keep doing the things you always do and limiting your experiences to what is easy and convenient. A few weekends ago Chelsey and I attended an event that was so different from my average Saturday night, and I’m still reminiscing about it.
I’m not afraid of hard work, and when I’m teaching ballet Monday-Saturday I live and breathe it. But when Sunday rolls around, I jump at the chance to go places and do things I love with my friends. I think I’d go crazy without that.
“La Roseraie” is French for “The Rose Garden”, which is where I was yesterday. It was an incredibly special day for me, and something that was on my own personal bucket-list. I can honestly say that yesterday goes down in history as one of my top five favourite days ever.
