What I am dreaming of in 2018


The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. …

So, it’s a New Year. It is 2018 and I am ready to rock! Bring out the planners. Create a fresh new vision! Build my future and further business/work/blogger prospects.

Before I tell you my favourite books or quotes of the year, I want to reflect on the year ahead. I want to broaden my writing prospects. Study more. Read more. Have more “quiet times”. Be more community involved. Join a church. I have just started attending KingdomCity in Wangara here in Western Australia with the senior pastors, Mark and Jemima Varughese. Their vision is “connecting, equipping and empowering people to bring the reality of God to their world.”

But I just want to further my education goals and reach higher. Aim higher. Get more and better fast tracked results health wise, financial wise or any goal-oriented points I put myself into.

My dream.

One word.

London.

Full stop.

I am enjoying the peace and quiet in Landsdale to reflect on what I personally want and strive to do. I have done the Reverse Bucket List last year. Tick!

I have set goals.

I want to be creative in my ideas.

But now is my time to put things into action and for once, use my decision-making skills and learn the decision-making process.

I have set goals and tasks, which I could share with you, but all I am thinking is, the “refresh” button. I want to start all over again, renew my thoughts, clear my mind, do it with a clean slate.

I am a goal oriented girl, and constantly talk about goals whether they’re long or short! My full dreams and aspirations and all the things I want to achieve. I am a very creative type, so doing things to create a program and become creative in everything I do would definitely help. I would love to create a platform for women to gain confidence in themselves. Starting a finishing school in Perth would also be a huge ambition/dream. I am ready!

Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible. …

So, I am pulling out “Your Beautiful Business” Book by Emma Franklin Belle and going to re-read this short inspirational book to see if I can turn my dreams of this blog into a business.

Emma Franklin Bell is the founder of The Beautiful Business Academy (The BBA). The BBA is an entrepreneurial academy for creative women who want to accelerate the growth of their businesses and successfully build their brands.

Your Beautiful Business Book inspires you to leap into your business and build something that is soulful, purposeful and profitable!

Next up, I will go through the book step by step about decluttering and building a stand out clear vision for my business. Bring on 2018 with some new fresh ideas and a heart full of many desires. I will be working on a book review of this book in my next blog post.

Any tips?

Have you started a business?

What are your goals for 2018?

Have you got any writing goals?

Any travel goals?

Also, what do you think of me starting a Finishing School in Perth for young ladies? Please comment below your thoughts. I would LOVE to hear from you!

Set your goals high, and don’t stop till you get there.

P.S. I will add my favourite books of the year and do more Book Reviews this year along with some different self-help quotes in a new blog post.

Also, don’t forget to check out Emma’s website and claim your FREE copy of her book!

“ENJOY” BY TRILLIA NEWBELL – REVIEW as featured on Taylor Magazine


 

 

The following article I did is featured on Taylor Magazine, an online London magazine that is a minimalistic guide to life, which is “Taylored for you”. From articles that speak about the matters of the heart, celebrity interviews, Life, conversations, culture, and they also include favourite books! Which is the category that I chose! According to their About page, Taylor was born out of the need to have something that combines EVERYTHING that consumes our world. Something that is taylored specifically for you.

Here is the link to “Enjoy” by Trillia Newbell – Review on Taylor Magazine, and I have put the article up so you can read it on my blog. I also did an article on “Feminism” on Taylor Magazines website, which you can find HERE. It is probably one of my best work, ever!

ENJOY BOOK

I am currently reading a book called “Enjoy – Finding the freedom to delight in God’s good gifts” by Trillia Newbell. I received this book from ‘Blogging for books’. I have done two book reviews so far, “How to own it” by Sallie Krawcheck, and “The Women of Easter” by Liz Curtis Higgs. I thoroughly enjoyed writing these, and have been looking forward to doing a different book. “Enjoy” is a faith-filled illustrative, scriptural based book on experiencing the fullness of life, and truly learning how to enjoy life in general. They cover the basis with scripture such as 1 Thessalonians that says to “rejoice always”.

They also reveal that joy is a fruit of the spirit – something that is developed and nurtured within us. I was a little unsure of doing a review on a Christian book, because some people aren’t religious, and it caters to people who believe in the Holy Bible. I was brought up in a Christian home, so I find this kind of reading therapeutic for me personally. I like how they talk about gifts, gifts He intends for our enjoyment. We have been given gifts in life. For example, I am truly learning the gift of writing. Growing up, I did love my books, and relished in an Enid Blyton story, but I honestly never thought I would create my own website, and write personal stories on my blog. This happened during my late twenties, when living in a small country town called Merredin, so it became a creative outlet for me to break out, and just write.

We can experience the fullness of enjoyment as we use our gifts daily. We can and should ‘enjoy, delight and rejoice’!

EnjoyMeme_02

Have you struggled with enjoying things in life, such as gardening, or just sitting down in your lounge and reading a good novel, or listening to classical music?

Sometimes we feel confused about the significance and purpose of leisure, but it is really quite simple. Turn on the radio, and dance your heart out, or sing to your hearts content. It is with learning to enjoy, recognize and appreciating things like leisure that you learn to see more clearly, and more passionately.

I particularly like how they say in the first chapter that there must be purpose in order for us to make sense of the world, and that we can easily fall into the snare of discontentment. It would make life hard to live if you are not feeling content with yourself. Life was created for us to enjoy, so, do things for yourself that would truly make you feel a sense of joy.

Through this book you can gain a deeper understanding of what it means to delight in good things, and to simply, enjoy your life. I also like how they created an “Enjoy Project” as a tool where there is a list of suggestions at the end of each chapter, and you can decide which suggestions you would like to do, such as journalling and you can write down if it was effective or enjoyable. For example, they put ‘start a blog series’, when I started blogging I felt a sense of joy and achievement from typing and it was out of pure joy that I started doing it.

If you do something similar to this, or just writing anything down in a journal, you will feel challenged, encouraged and inspired. We are not called to do life on our own, we are created to also work together and have relationships where we can sit down and talk to one another sharing our goals and dreams and aspirations for the future. That is one of the best things you could ever do, is get with people and talk about what you want to do with your life, and then truly embrace your god given talents. Our goal can also be to learn what it truly means to enjoy. Maybe create a random encouragement card to someone that you admire – investing in other people is worthwhile.

I love how at the end of every chapter there is a section/list on what you can do to create that joy, for example, scheduling a coffee date with a friend, making a meal for someone, or making certain lists. And each chapter starts out with an inspirational quote, which is pleasant to start off with.

I particularly liked Chapter Nine, which is called “The Art of Life” opening up with the sentence, “It’s interesting how something can be so central to your everyday life and then gradually fade away”. I have had this in the area of friendship specifically, and also when playing an instrument. My life was focused on piano playing for about eight years, but over the past few years I have forgotten what its like to sit down, and let my fingers tap away with such joy in my heart, and I miss those days. Sometimes life gets in the way of enjoyment and it is important for us to delight in everything that we do. If certain obstacles prevent us from fulfilling our dreams it is easy to fall into the trap of self-pity, we need to put our hope into pursuing and cultivating a great life for ourselves. This chapter really stood out to me because it’s so easy to get lost along the way that you forget to truly enjoy life.

You can delight in a variety of things, and I particularly liked that chapter because it talks about the arts. I delight in painting and music, and theatre, so it really stood out to me.

EnjoyMeme_01

 

Last, but not least, the last chapter called “Everlasting Enjoyment” focuses on the spiritual side of things, delighting in not only the here and now, but looking forward to the future, and it talks about faith and hope. To be truly complete, you must have hope. I particularly like how they use scripture such as Romans 5:35 how it says that ‘suffering produces endurance, endurance produces character, and character produces hope’, and especially it ends with a C. S. Lewis quote: “For the present is the point at which time touches eternity.

So, I hope that even if you don’t read this book, that you have learnt something to truly learn to enjoy your life by doing things that you love.

“Enjoy!”

“Old English” poems


Most old english pieces of literature and manuscript origins, authorship and early history are quite unknown. I particularly liked and picked up an “old English poetry” book from Scarborough library that I am absolutely loving. Sometimes I feel like it is a bit more eloquent than I could ever be! But my interest in English Literature is widening, and I especially like poems that have a biblical sense to it.

This book is made up of different ‘books’, for example, there is the Vercelli book, and the Exeter book, which has meaning behind the words.

It is a broad view of Anthology of British Literature, and there is a complete range of lyrics that I decided to pick ones I like and share them with you.

I want to be a Woman of Easter!!!


I have been eagerly writing today and taking down notes from reading “The Women of Easter” by Liz Curtis Higgs. I have collected my thoughts together, and have thoroughly relished in achieving this. It has been a while since I have fully read an entire book in just ONE day!!!! I felt so successful, and felt like I have achieved something for the day, which keeps me feeling truly content.

What I am going to do is set it out by each chapter so that you can get an idea and outline of the book.

So, let’s get started! Continue reading “I want to be a Woman of Easter!!!”

Fortnum & Mason Favourites


fortnum-and-mason

 

I have come across a few favourites……. Well, ALOT actually……

I couldn’t help myself but google Fortnum and Mason today. It has been a dream the past couple of years to visit London, and enjoy a high-tea there. It is on my LIST! I haven’t visited London just yet, but I know that I will get there one day! There is something about that place, coffee shops, museums, art galleries, bookshops, and so much MORE!!!! I enjoy watching “Ladies of London” every now and then too.

Find here a number of items I found on F&M’s website – ROYAL COLLECTION

I am in LOVE with this pink mug, Halycon Days Her Majesty The Queens 90th Birthday Mug in Pink

QUEENS 90th PINK MUG

Halycon Days is a London brand. It is an English fine bone china mug that is finished with an intricate trellis design. Featuring a wreath of golden flourishes that frames the inscription ‘In Celebration of the 90th Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, 21st April 2016’, this mug makes a wonderful addition to any home.

I am LOVING the GIFT section. They have a WIDE range of Bath and Body, Skincare, Handbags and purses, fragrances, jewellery, scarfs, flowers, tea, china and silverware, and hampers! There is so much to shop!!!!

There are TWO kinds of tea that I want to buy.

Queen Anne Blend Tea

Created in 1907, this popular blend is named after the monarch who was on the throne in the year that Fortnum & Mason actually began. The smooth blend of carefully selected TGFOP Assam and Ceylon FBOP teas produces a strong, smooth tea that is refreshing at any time of day.

QUEEN ANNE BLEND TEA

 

Royal Blend Tea

This luxury tea is classic. It has ceylon and assam. It was actually first blended for King Edward VII in the summer of 1902, Royal Blend has been popular ever since for its smooth, almost honey-like flavour.

ROYAL BLEND TEA

There is also a tea towel that I absolutely ADORE!

It is ‘Her Majesty The Queens 90th Birthday Tea Towel

This beautifully designed tea towel commemorates The Queen’s 90th in true royal fashion. Made in the UK from 100% cotton, this tea towel is finished in royal blue and features an inscription celebrating the UK’s longest reigning monarch.

QUEENS 90th TOWEL

and of course, I want to get a bag that represents……

F&M BAG

They even have a lunch box you can buy!!!!

So that’s just a few to add to my ever-growing list on what to buy. I think that when I DO get to London, I will probably need just about ten grand!!!!

Harrods and Selfridges here I come!!!! World-class shopping is EVERYTHING.

Harrods has Chanel Cosmetics such as the Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base. The velvety finish of this light cream-gel bronzer leaves your skin with a beautiful sun-bathed look. Wear it on its own, or for a hint of outdoors radiance, over or under your favourite CHANEL foundation.

LIFE


One thing I have been thinking about today is that – “Life is so very precious”. We can be here one moment and then gone the next. I lost a best friend when I was about 12-13 years of age to a car accident, and it was the worst feeling I had ever been through….. I cried for days, and had a lump in my throat for the whole duration from being in such an emotional state. I also lost my granny around the same year as well. So I understand how precious life can really be. 

Sometimes we can be sooo caught up with “life” that we don’t even ‘experience’ life!!!!!

What does LIFE mean to you?


Is it about the car you drive? The clothes you wear?

Your education? Qualifications? Work?

Is it about how much money you earn?

We can sometimes get so caught up in the physical that we don’t look at the spiritual. 

You say, what does that mean? 

I mean, stop worrying about what you look like, or how you sound and start spreading some love to the people around you.

Love?

It doesn’t have to be the kissy poo-poo kind of affection, it can mean you can just start smiling kindly to people you walk past down the street, or bake a cake for your neighbour. You may have just made their day! – you never know!!!! Or buy some flowers randomly for a close friend! People love it when you are thoughtful, and especially kind. Kindness definitely goes a long way and is a beautiful trait to have.


If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I recently hand wrote a bible scripture.

“Clothe yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience”


This is one of my favourite scriptures, and I think it is vital to hold these qualities if you want a peaceful heart. Maybe start reading the New King James Bible, and get together some Proverbs that you like, and write them on some pretty cards. Or use them for scrapbooking or card-making projects!

I also like this quote:

“Live each day, as it is a precious gift, because it is.”

I think we need a fresh new perspective daily on life, and we need to pull ourselves together and make an effort when it comes to friendships and relationships. 

Also, Passion is a key ingredient to the study and practice of life. 

💕

Elle Woods, (Legally Blonde) 

It is with passion, courage of conviction, strong sense of self that we take our next steps into the world. 

Have faith in people, and most importantly have faith in yourself. 

Have a look at this TO DO LIST! I ❤️ it!!!!


Maybe you can step back and have a look at your own life and write your OWN to do list!!! There are so many things we can change inwardly AND outwardly. When we write things down we have a clear note of what we need to do to live greatly. 

I don’t know about you, but I want to do AMAZING things with my life!!!!! And live a hopeful, fulfilled, inspirational life. 

What things can you do to succeed this? 


So, think about what you can do to live a life of fulfilment. I think that if you have a life filled with love then you are definitely on the road to success. 

Think this weekend about what things exactly you can do to love others, and share things with friends. There are a ton of things you can do to live a life of purpose.

I don’t just have a dream. I have a VISION and a purpose!!!

The word “vision” is profound, as without a vision there is no purpose and things don’t succeed as well. Have a vision with anything you do in life. For example, I have a vision for my blog.

“To create a platform for ladies to find inspiration and pull thoughts, ideas and advice together whether it’s beauty, fashion or reading.”

 I may have more than one! 

To me, vision is a BIG thing and I hope you find a vision for your life, business or work. 


Create a VISION BOARD

PUT THOUGHTS, JOURNALS AND QUOTES ALL IN ONE


It will keep you inspired with your work, business, blog, writing, or whatever you do!!! 

So venture out and write down everything on a A3 peice of paper and visualise everything and write down your accomplishments. It will get you started,….. With LIFE!!!

Some tips on Staying positive at work


hard-work-quote-7

1. Keep learning

Just because you are not at high school anymore, doesn’t mean that you have to stop learning. Learning is the key role to fill your position and On-the-job education is the best way to build up your resume. You need to “learn on the job” to get as much experience out of it, and focus on educating yourself in the long run. For example, even though I am not working I have been borrowing books at the library about London to keep me occupied. I am studying something out of passion.

let-success-be-your-noise-frank-ocean-quotes-sayings-pictures

2. Teach others what you know – I don’t know about most people, but I get joy from helping others with things that I know. For example, I worked in administration, and would know how to do things an accountant or lawyer might not even know!! Even if someone is higher up in a company, there are little things they might not even know!!!! I am currently volunteering at the local christian bookshop, and an elderly lady that worked there did not even know how to use a magnet book mark!!!

work-large-part-of-your-life-steve-jobs-quotes-sayings-pictures

Doing things like this would keep me happy in a company for sure!!! When you know something, it keeps you happy.

success-quote-pinterest

 

I decided to share this as it was a discussion post that I put up on my Library Studies course. I figured it could help those trying to work in an environment of positivity at work… and it is nice to share my thoughts on something that people want to know as well.

The main thing is to keep happy! Even if it is hard, try and have an attitude that people strive for! Being happy is a successful thing in itself, and is the most important thing in life!

Well, I hope those two points have helped someone at least. I just wanted to share what my thoughts were on the subject.

Now, back to “Writing a job application” process on my ‘Guide to responding to selection criteria’! I am very excited to be doing this course……… It has been keeping me on my toes and busier than ever, thank goodness! I missed having a busy life! haha!

Dare to dream


How many “I wishes” do you have? This is my list…

I wish I could read Italian and French.
I wish I could speak like a really classy woman
I wish I could be a MORE proficient writer!
I wish I could sew and design my own brand of clothes.
I wish I could do my own hairstyles
I wish I had a toned lean killer body
I wish I had a clean, massive, expensive wardrobe

Does any of this sound familiar to you? Everybody wants some sort of words of wisdom to keep them going in life. If you can stay inspired and focus on living and achieving your goals, then whatever goals you have, they can become bigger over time, as you set out to persist and achieve more. We all have dreams, and I have been a big dreamer growing up. I have been the “reach for the stars” kind of girl. Dreams and imagination play a big part from a young age. I dreamt for the “Mary Poppins” and “Disney Princess” life when I was little, and it is probably still in me because what you fantasise as a child can still play out as you grow older! But I do have different dreams as an adult. What are your dreams?

I love this quote:

Elegance, How to be a lady, Lady

How to be a lady


Classic Lady Wide Desktop Background

As I have said before in my “About” page, I have done an elegance course in Etiquette, & Self-Manner. It is important for most women to learn how to conduct themselves in a graceful manner and obtain qualities of self-assurance, and self-confidence. I recently bought two books that have helped me gain confidence no matter what the situation is. If you would like to buy material on being a lady I recommend “A guide to Elegance” by Genevieve Antoine Dariaux, and “How to be a lady” by Candace Simpson-Giles. They are my “go-to” and “how-to” books on living with an elegant style. Information on elegance is endless, but sometimes you have to pay to do a course and the information I can give is totally free. I have written down notes from the course that I did, and the books I have listed are also on my Instagram page. The purpose of an etiquette course is to teach young women to conduct themselves in dignity, character and poise. I even learnt this from watching a “Barbie” movie!!!

I am going to start with the “Mindset of a lady”

Firstly, I would like to say that “a woman becomes a lady through training, self-awareness, and a lot of love”.

The beauty of becoming a lady is a timeless thing. Much is to be learnt, and when it comes to training I think the best thing to do is look up on elocution tutorials on YouTube. I came across quite a few lessons, and they teach you how to speak well, and how to present yourself in a proper way. A great film to watch is “My fair Lady” with Audrey Hepburn. It is amazing to see the change in presentation and speech so dramatically.

AUDREY HEPBURN

A lady is someone who has found the true essence of what it is to be a woman. My favourite website is http://www.elegantwoman.org. There are HEAPS of articles on elegance, how to be lovely, etc and they have the right information you need. They also do courses, if that’s what you want to do.

Your opinions and experiences affect all that you do. How you accept life comes across in your attitude, and the mind of a lady will show.

Consider this, a lady embraces the truth of WHO she is and lives her life with strength and conviction in the knowledge that a lady is a magnificent being of charm, beauty and class.

A lady defines what is sensitive, delicate, kind, beautiful and cultured.

CLASSIC LADY 2

Being in tune with beauty does not mean being weak and ineffectual. True beauty comes from within, and what’s in your heart will always show to others.

Just as a diamond reflects such sparkle and beauty, yet is one of the hardest stones, equally a lady can exude feminine beauty whilst remaining strong. The best and my most favourite TV show that exemplifies “ladies” is the much loved series, Downton Abbey. Watch this, as it will help you talk like a lady.

Downton-Abbey-6_gl_2feb12_b_426x639

The way that a lady thinks and feels about herself is crucial. It always comes across in conversation, and I have understood this from experience. If you have a positive attitude and mindset, it will radiate and come across in your personality, and people LOVE that!!!! Read books by Georgette Heyer, Julie Klassen or Stephanie Laurens. It will help you widen your vocabulary.

Your love and care for yourself radiates outwards to all those that you come into contact with.

“Know yourself, and love yourself” are indeed important mantras for every lady.

Ask yourself:

Why do you WANT to be a lady?

Have you ever felt less than a lady?

Also, what aspects of being a lady are important to you?

Classy-lady-quote-of-the-day

If you want to do a course, I recommend Etiquette and Co, They do a two day refinement package, and I am pretty sure they are held in Sydney. If you live in Melbourne, go to Tanya Powell Modelling Agency. They are great, and such friendly people.

Also, Go to How to be a classy lady article to improve yourself in personal grooming and dressing well. It has great highlights on improving posture, hygiene and dressing elegantly.
