Do you ever just stop sometimes, even if only for a moment and not worry about the future or how you’re going to achieve all your dreams and goals but marvel instead in wonder at what you have achieved so far. No? Me Either. But we should. We really should. I had read a quote the other day – surprise surprise – that went a little like this – “the reason people give up so fast is because they tend to look at how far they have to go instead of how far they’ve gotten”. I am a huge believer in bucket lists, setting goals, having dreams but I also think its so important to remember and be proud of what you have achieved so far as well. Have you had some gorgeous children? Traveled somewhere you’d always wanted to go? Gotten a degree? Swam in a different ocean? Lived a tough life and come out a better person. Well I think you’re amazing, nay, I think you’re extraordinary – be proud, marvel at your own greatness and use it to be even more motivated in the future. Life is about living after all so celebrate what has been and get excited at what is to come. My Monday posts are about 5 things which inspire me currently on Pinterest however and here they are this week.


I have just acquired more coloured jeans – a red pair and a blue pair so I am constantly looking for new style inspiration on how to wear them well and loved this look (I need some coral coloured ones stat)

Hi my names Anna and I love baths. Yup. Love them. I need this bath tub in this bathroom. Big tub + big window = Annas bath bliss
Simple but so true. People won’t always like what you have to say about everything but if you stay true to yourself and you’re not hurting anybody then you’re living as the best original you can be
I am slowly putting together recipes for a high tea fundraiser I am going to host and this little mini pavlova has made the cut – mine don’t look as amazing but one can only try right?
Mr M & I’s loungeroom walls are blank. Terrible I know. The reason being I hadn’t found what I wanted to decorate them with but as of this DIY I have. I’m making words on canvas that suit us & our lives to hang. Love them!
