#MondayManicure The Sky’s my Limit Mustang Blue

Honestly didn’t look at the name of this polish until after painting my nails, but it’s apt as after today’s Monday morning motivation I’m doing as I promised and making a start to big plans and changes for my businesses.

Anyhow…NAILS!! How devine is this shimmering blue, it’s called Sky’s the Limit and is part of a limited edition Mustang collection created with OPI.

I keep smiling at my nails as I type, I picked this colour today not because it goes with my outfit (it doesn’t I’m wearing pink polka dots!) but I was doing some blog photos using my HUGE nails polish collection (for something fun coming up later today) and this was just one of the many I havent worn yet.

What do you think? What colour are you rocking on this fine Monday morning?

Monday Motivation, Little Steps

Afternoon all wanting to share some inspiration and motivation with you all I found this quote from Commemtsmeme searching Google and I find it so apt at the moment.

image

Everything I have achieved so far running my beauty room, having my articles featured in Kent Women in business magazine, being recognised and awarded for being a mumpreneur and beauty professional through awards and even being a mum it’s all been achieved and made possible in little steps, don’t get me wrong I may be like an octopus taking 8 little steps with various projects but I’m passionate, it works!

image

Anyway my very little achievement in the scheme of things comes in relation to my blog, I’ve done a 100 posts and got 200 likes I know statistically it’s crap, but at the moment I’m not sure how successful I will become but these little markers remind me I’m heading the right way, it’s like a well done for something I already enjoy so much and reminds me I’m taking little steps for big achievements (hopefully, maybe one day!) 💄

Monday Morning Motivation from Marilyn Monroe x

I remember studying Marilyn Monroe for media studies, we had to analyse Diamonds are a Girls Best friend over and over!  I think that’s when my curiosity, love and admiration for Marilyn began, although I can never watch that song without picking it’s meaning and connotations to pieces.

Well today’s her birthday and so I spent my morning cuppa flicking through the pages of Marilyn Rembered and smiling.

She remains featured on my dream boards today and this morning I’m sharing one of the quotes I love that resonates with me most…

Have a fabulous Monday may all your wishes come true!

Monday Motivation on Tuesday. Why I’m inspired by this extreme 6 year old!

Morning so I missed Monday motivation yesterday my 8 week old got chicken pox and kind of needed me a little bit more, his ok and like his older brother just a few weeks ago has so far remained happy and smiling through the spots.
Finley (my 6 year old) is on school hols at mo, I’m going to share with you why he is my Monday motivation story.

20140415-093816.jpg
My little boy Finley is adorable, polite, funny and extremely energetic. He doesn’t excel in curricular activities but he has a passion for trying and he will try his hardest and that’s where I have so much admiration for him, he also has a passion for extreme sports.

His grown up around motocross, bmx, skateboards and freestyle. He was in DirtBikeRider Magazine at just a couple of months old. He watches extreme sports channel as much as he does kids tv. He thinks Chris Birch, one of the top uk freestyle motocross riders is his friend because he talks to him every time he sees him at local demonstrations. He asked for a wheelchair after talking to wheelz and watching him backflip at the Nitro Circus Show in London. He done a school assembly on Travis Pastrana as a person he admires. I think you kinda get his love and passion. His currently telling everyone and riding high on the fact that Twitch retweeted a picture of him out the woods, yesterday. He watches twitch loads on YouTube and wants to be just like him, he thinks his twitch etnies make him daring and extra cool doing jumps!

20140415-101814.jpg
He currently doesn’t have a mx bike because he bent it going to fast over jumps (despite being told not too!) so his been concentrating on bmx. He spent the last two days out the woods with his gorgeous dad digging and building jumps, riding them too. His really pushing himself, yesterday he came back with a groin injury from handlebars, a shin injury from pedals and a busted lip where the one tooth he has got went through it! But the motivation he had didn’t deter him, don’t get me wrong the bottom lip dropped, but he couldn’t wait to tell me the ways he had succeeded and the jumps he had ridden.

He also asked his dad to take his friend out there, that’s one amazing thing extreme sports have taught him the importance of a team, a crew, a family. His already said his crew will include all extreme sports not just bikes, he wants to include all his friends, his currently working on his first video!

So I have waffled on and on, and on some more but in just 2 days I realised so much my 6 year old does inspires me:
• A Passion for trying
• A Passion to succeed (whilst loving his hugely competitive!!)
• A belief that no one is too big or too celebrity to be his friend, he sees everyone as a person and a friend no limits.
• Motivation, Determination and Belief make him get up after every fall.
• Sharing all that excites him and that he loves with others makes him even happier.
• his advice to anyone starting is “practise, get a crew, stay healthy” …. Even a 6 year old knows u have to look after no.1 to inspire, motivate and support others

So go enjoy your week like a 6 year old, be passionate in your beliefs, have fun, smile, share it with people who matter, reach out to someone you admire, and most importantly get back up with a smile from each little trip or hiccup!

Monday Motivation apparently we should all be Blue!

Apparently we are into our second blue Monday of the year ALREADY!

Like the media doesn’t already fill us with enough doom and gloom did we really need to wake up this morning preparing ourselves to feel blue when the possibilities of the day haven’t even unfolded! Why is it blue??

Granted I’m 3/4 of the way into the month and can’t wait for pay day, and this morning I had to de-ice the inside of my widescreen (seriously!), and a mess up on the accountants side meant me spending the morning doing figures and paperwork. So What?? We still have yummy food on our plates everyday, I have a de-icer tool thingy so my hands don’t get cold and I don’t break anymore cd cases, plus finley found it hilarious that i was making it “snow” in the car and on the plus side of the accounts I got to drink hot chocolate on the sofa.

My point is, it is what we make it. Some days I would of woke up at today’s events and cried like a baby because some days that’s just easier but the reality is we decided if we are blue or not and we decide how we accept each daily challenge thrown at us and I try my best to face them in the happiest way possible, after all only I decide how I want to feel.

With special thanks to my wonderful upline in Arbonne & my friend Pamela Ibanez for sharing this picture, she always finds our team the perfect motivation to share and she has an awe about her that just gives off incredible positivity, she really does ROCK!

So Smile, take 5 and reconnect, it’s only blue Monday if we let it happen 😉
