One of the things that became abundantly clear to me this year is that the most important things you can have (aside from a loving family) is a home that you truly love and feel comfortable and safe in.
With many of life's distractions taken away - travel, the freedom to visit friends and family, social gatherings and even shopping... which I hasten to add is my ultimate downtime hobby. Our homes are now more than ever before the centre of everything!
One of the things that has helped me personally to get through this very strange and unpredictable year has been self care and investing in my wellbeing both physically and mentally. This has meant lots of long walks... in the lockdown months that permitted and lots of home spas and pamper days.
It's fair to say the Coronavirus pandemic has been life-changing. Nobody thought the economy could be closed down like it was, and so many people would be affected. The disruption to our lives has been difficult but also necessary. We have had to adapt quite significantly. Some of the changes, though necessary, have also been positive and will probably continue long after the crisis ends.
Sundays were made for luxuriation and indulgence with the one you love (that can and should be yourself) and if there is another you love... well that's just the icing on the cake isn't it!
Speaking of cake, the Hub's and I spend this Sunday doing all of the relaxing things we love. Gardening, sunbathing and eating cake.
I realised that I haven't shared any of our guest rooms on my blog and what good a time as any to share them than while we are in lock down and I have some time to photograph them!
I mentioned in my previous post that I'd been spending most of my time during lock down cleaning, tiding and re organising our villa as it seems most of you guys are too. Seeing people posting on social media about how they are investing in their homes has been really inspiring to me.
If you keep up with me on Instagram, you'll know that like most of you, I've spent my days during these crazy times of lock down pulling our home apart and putting it back together again.
Everybody wants to be confident, but not a lot of people really know where confidence comes from. True confidence is what you want to go for, and that is a much rarer breed to find than its common twin - bravado. The thing about bravado is that it very often comes hand in hand with low self-esteem but high self-regard, and that is a recipe for failure. What you want to develop is a genuine inner confidence which you can feel within you as a store of energy, and from which you can act with assurance and directness. There are a few certain things you can do to improve that internal store of confident energy.
I thought id share some photos of last years Easter celebrations. The weather was so perfect that we decided to host our friends by the pool which coincidentally, totally matched my colour theme... happy accident! ! Its so lovely to be by water don't you think?
Part of the fun of special events for me is the planning and the preparation. The lead up to the events is often more exciting than the actual event. Easter for me is one of my favourite holidays to plan for
