The innocence of a child at play reminds me of how simple life can be and how we should take a step back to take the time to r e l a x and to be thankful for all that we have. I have noticed myself lately being grateful for all the things that I have in my life and most of all my daughters, my step families and their amazing little people. The image below is Miss Ivy, soon to be 3. I had the privilege of looking after her a few weeks ago, here she is playing with my eldest daughter's Fisher Price dollhouse. That dollhouse was purchased over 18 years ago. Little miss remembers this doll house every time she visits. I am thankful that I have kept it.

There are an abundance of family and friend gatherings as 2015 comes to a close. If you are anything like me I like to have a gift on hand to offer my thanks for hosting the event. I will either buy or bake something depending on the place and hosts.

As I sit here patiently waiting for my contract to come through for my new job, I am contemplating where my life is heading as I enter a new phase of my life as well as other facets with my daughters. Miss R working, spending loads of time with her boyfriend and planning a trip to Japan in February. Miss B having her P's, a car and driving herself around everywhere. Last Wednesday we had a major scare as my baby girl had a minor accident which distressed us completely. We have now recovered but still a little tender. Miss B is loving her independence. The time is absolutely right for me to take time and do all that I would like. Time for me!!
Indulge me for a moment with the bare shoulder silhouette perfect for those hot days outdoors. The simple and complete outfit all in one for a stylish summer. The bare shoulder style is super flattering and look fabulous on everyone. I find I feel super confident and feel a little glam wearing an off the shoulder number.

This time of year everyone is looking forward to the christmas break, a month to go and 2016 will be knocking. People tend to be a little overwhelmed at this time of year, with what is on their list to complete all that is ahead, as well crossing of their gift lists, so tensions can be a little higher than normal. It pays to be a little kinder and extra patient to all.
Kindness is something I am very passionate about. It is super easy to be KIND. You never know it but a simple kind gesture can make a person feel better. A kind gesture can go a long way. You never realise the power you have to help make someone feel better by showing a little kindness.

The last week has been quite an emotional rollercoaster for me. Firstly I have a job! YAY! After months and months of searching and going for interviews I have finally been picked and believe it or not I will be working with a brand I know and love so well.
The interview was just like any other interview I was selling myself to the best of my ability and then, right there, int he interview I was told that they would love to hire me. I stated that I have been putting myself out there for so long and I could not believe my ears. After being old no so many times I guess you build a thick skin and just presume that you are not the one. I have always gone in putting my best self forward and hoping and wanting the position I was applying for ........ but I guess, it was meant to be that way as I have gained employment with a company that was my ultimate choice in the retail field. All the paperwork is being processed at the moment and I am literally walking on a cloud, still in disbelief, that I have a job. I will fill you all in with more detail later.
