When a Loaded Word (c**t) is Flung in Your Direction…

Today started off as any other day. I sent out my CV to potential job opportunities (I was made redundant), had lunch and then decided to do my daily walk around town.  It would always end at my local Waitrose (grocery store chain in the UK) where I would pick up a few necessities and then make my way to Costa Coffee where I would splurge and get my decaf peach iced tea. Yes, that is what I call splurging at the moment. This has been my routine, my world, for the last 2 months. A simple one. But today was not like any other day, today was the day I was called an uneducated C**t in an upscale grocery store.

Monday Motivation: Optimism

Positivity, Monday Motivation

Ok my little pandas, this Monday motivation is brought to you by the word, optimism.

Last night, I was super bummed that the weekend had gone by so quick again. It’s like I let out an exhale on Friday and before the next inhale, it somehow magically turned into Sunday night. Isn’t that always the case? This quickness makes me feel like I’m not cramming enough in to my days. Like I’m not being productive enough. And then, just like that, my mood wavers to the rockier side of the seas, which in turn makes me get a little doubtful with myself. Negativity eventually swoops in and I find myself wishing certain things in my life had turned out differently. I’m not ashamed to admit that I mope on certain occasions. In fact, I used to really mope hard. A hardcore moper. Is there even such a thing?

Weekend Photo Journal: Ain’t Nothing Like The 1950’s

Elizabeth Taylor

Pandas I often feel very strongly about the fact that I was born in the wrong era. Well, I’m torn to tell you the truth. From the one hand I really do love technology but from the other, I think I could give that up tomorrow if they invented a time machine so I could transport myself back to the 1950’s.

Sometimes Life May Get You Down, But…

How many of us have been here?! I’m pretty sure lots and lots of us. Here’s the thing, we can’t let life get to us. It’s too much stress and we all know that stress is not the best companion.’

Weekend Photo Journal: Hooray For Houndstooth

Houndstooth

Okay Pandas, this week I have been lusting over Houndstooth. There’s just something about the pattern, not to mention the cosy thickness of it. It’s so chic for winter that I want to shout it from the rooftops. Now I know over-using this pattern can scream houndstooth road kill. But splashes of it here and there, will always be a YES moment.

Weekend Photo Journal: Envious of Ms. Emerald Green

Emerald Envy

 

In this weekend’s photo journal I have decided to stick to another royal, rich, decadent colour of deliciousness. And that my panda buddies, is the beautiful Emerald Green. Isn’t it just a divine, sumptuous, opulent,  and exquisite colour? It should have been the colour of the Gods. If Zeus was still around I’m pretty sure he would have draped all of mount Olympus and the Parthenon with trinkets, trimmings and adornments of this sexy commanding colour.

People, Love and Materialism

words of wisdom

Ain’t the above so true my Pandas? I read it and was like YEAH! most people have lost sight of the important things in life. Why is that? I do know one thing though, a lot of us are starting to become collectors of things. It’s like the more we have, the more we are accepted and liked by society, or so we think. What the hell ever happened to love and being loved solely on who you are as a person? I think we look at all these “celebrities” on the cover of magazines and/or social media and for some reason people are breaking their backs trying to acquire a similar lifestyle. It’s not possible people. The average Joe does not make millions. The really sad thing is, that I know of people who wasted all their money on a high end Porsche or Ferrari, yet live in a fucking shit hole. You know why? Because they want to be on the streets showing the image of wealth off. Through their eyes, material possessions mean more. And if they knew someone who had even more, they would probably use them to acquire the same amount of things. It’s just one big greed-fest. I mean it might as well say, ‘love thy neighbour’s car’ in the ten commandments.
