Bank Holiday in Kent

Blessings of summer give feelings of gratitude as Harley and I sit in the sun with my edits. A beautiful day with the pond fountain, audible droplets falling, comfy cushions and a laptop ready for edits as we head for the last push on the dissertation appendices. 
Life has not felt so incredible in so long and I’m soaking every second like a sponge. 

Taking moments out over the bank holiday weekend to enjoy countryside walks and fantastic company, my smile broadens ever wider with gratitude. 

Taking in the beauty of Kent was more than welcome as the stunning weather gave a feel of content coupled with an unusual feeling of incredible worth. 

My creative process helped massively by the positivity of loving living my absolute best life.

Wanderlust is back! The Sinai Desert

We have active wanderlust and I couldn’t be more excited for the upcoming trips. Since my last account was hacked, I’m going to be reposting some of my favourite photos from my best trips on my instagram page. 💕

The Sinai desert was full of wonder as underfoot the moon like appearance gave us an unfamiliar feeling. As the sun set and the stars graced us with their genuine mind blowing show, we gazed open mouthed at a sight never before acknowledged in such a way. 💫 This place felt magical and mystery filled the air as much as the coldness did during the transition from day to night. 🌓 We made bread and danced around the fire while drinking sweet hibiscus tea from an aluminium kettle 🌺 Memories like these are timeless.

Chase that dream! They do come true!

Every week, on Mondays, on my Youtube channel I talk about the law of attraction and chasing the dream. People love this little bit of confirmation and approval to go ahead and dream big!

Today, I was up and out early to write more of my dissertation.  I am completely loving my uni life in my post grad days and being the full time writer is the dream come true.  Although it has been a long time in the making.  As I grabbed my car keys and ruck sack containing all that was needed for a day of writing,  I opened the door and felt the warm summer air hit my face, breathing in the scent of the flowers which are blooming on my palm tree. Feeling very thankful for this beautiful day and realising how lucky I am to be going to work in blue denim shorts and converse, comfy and 'me'.  

Wearing what I like to work

The office this morning. 

The laptop lifestyle

Very blessed to be able to head to the local coffee shop to get my head down and write, my feet took me on a mini journey to view the yachts and the clouds on this incredible day before editing a Youtube video, writing a blog post and cracking on with writing my dissertation about life.  The past I will write today sees me describing a time of homelessness and poverty during pregnancy following IVF.  Yes, that was me.  My life is unrecognisable and of course it has been a long time in the making, taking a lot of grafting but here I am now completely living the dream.  

If I can; you can.

Chivalry is not dead!

My fiction writing sees a female protagonist who is strong, independent and doesn't suffer fools gladly.

Yet, she is a girl who embraces her femininity much to mens confusion.  And she believes in chivalry.

This is often the description I use to highlight the 'feel' of my stories.  Often, of course, such a protagonist filters through into my life writing. Does she sound like anyone you might think is familiar?  Possibly someone who frequents this page perhaps.

Early this morning I woke with sleepy eyes, yet feeling wide awake and unable to return to my dream state, so I decided to get up and start the day.  Walking Harley, my thoughts turned to this blog and the infrequency of my writing.  I sense the blog is a great place to begin before I start on my work in progress.

So here I am.

It was too early for Starbucks on this Sunday and so I decided to take myself on a walk around the marina.  Yes, there was the perfect parking space thanks to the Law of Attraction and I went to walk through the light green door up the staircase to the marina.  A man was quickly coming out from the stairs after his gym session and flew through the door, dropping it behind him.
"Oh..." he said quietly as he turned on his heels.  He actually went back on his steps to hold the door open for me! I was more than impressed.  It wasn't like I was dressed much like a lady particularly, gym shoes, leggings and a pink lee cooper t shirt, but this gentleman really showed me for sure that Chivalry isn't dead!

Do you love chivalrous men?
Are you a gent yourself?

Reach out, let me know.
