Let love conquer the darkness. Or at least give it a giant punch in the face.

Writing this, I am listening to a song on repeat.  It came up on my playlist and threw me in to a maelstrom of emotions, and once again writing some random thoughts down seems to be the only thing that might help me make some sense of this frenzy of feelings. I have written before… Continue reading Let love conquer the darkness. Or at least give it a giant punch in the face.

Friday music research findings – Country has it goin’ on

It’s been a country music on Spotify kind of day here.  I’d pity my colleagues if I didn’t believe that they secretly enjoy it too.  They didn’t complain, so I’m making some assumptions and running with them. Who doesn’t love kickin’ it up on the tailgate, anyway?  (I’m not 100% sure what that actually means but I’m… Continue reading Friday music research findings – Country has it goin’ on

Sunday thankfulness

Happy Sunday, lovelies!

It’s been a good weekend.

Things I am thankful for this sunny Sunday:

  • The first tiny tomato on my tiny tomato plant!  I’m growing an actual vegetable!  Or rather, a fruit.  But still, it’s growing.  I’ll take the win. You’ve got to look closely, but it’s there.Tomato!
  • ABBA playing randomly on the radio.
  • An early night to come before a mad week.
  • An afternoon with some of my best girls on a long-overdue catch-up. There were bubbles, and cheeses.  And Russian fudge.
  • Clean laundry.
  • Not one but two outings with one of my soul sisters, always good for the spirit.
  • Craft markets with insanely talented artists and vendors.
  • A-Team reruns

Here’s to a good week!  Hope you’ve had a great weekend x

Lyrics and tunes and beats, oh my!

It’s been a week of heated arguments and fiercely defended opinions.  Scathing comments have been thrown around like confetti and outright umbrage has been taken, with no thought for the consequences.  Passions have run high and friendships have been tested. What could possibly have prompted such highly charged tension, you may be asking (if you’re… Continue reading Lyrics and tunes and beats, oh my!

The foibles of unruly follicles

“I think that the most important thing a woman can have – next to talent, of course – is her hairdresser.” ― Joan Crawford Curly hair.  It’s a challenge. Granted, not a challenge in the biggest sense.  It’s not like the Greek financial situation, or ending world hunger.  It’s not running a marathon, or starting… Continue reading The foibles of unruly follicles

Bringing sexy back, one morning at a time…

Sometimes, when we’re not paying attention, sexy goes AWOL.  It sneaks away so quietly in the everyday rush of life, and it can take a random prompt to go looking for it again. It’s something that I was recently reminded of in an interesting conversation with a very inspirational friend.  This illuminating discussion started with a bold statement.… Continue reading Bringing sexy back, one morning at a time…
