Last week after pottery class, I bought myself some ice cream before my osteo appt. That’s like 3 self-care things in a row. And here’s the thing, I do struggle with whether I deserve all those things or not, but that’s besides the point. The point is, I had never went out for ice cream by myself before! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sure I’ve eaten ice cream alone on the couch before, but to go to an ice cream shop, but ice cream and eat it alone? Never! I’ve also never taken myself out for dinner before. Here’s the thing. The things we do as self-care, I believe need to come after the belief that you are worthy of care. Not that you need to come first above your partner or your children or your friends all the time. But that yes, me too, I am worthy of care, or time, of rest, of nutrition, of sleep, of respect, of compassion. I am learning, that the better we treat ourselves, the better we actually treat others. Not superficially, but from our hearts. We truly can only love others to the extent that we love ourselves. We can only forgive others to the extent that we forgive ourselves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you take yourself out to restaurants or for ice cream or something else? #tuesdaythoughts #tuesdayramblings #selfcare #selfacceptance #selfcompassion #ldnont #havenscreamery #motherhood #unlearning #beyourownfriend #ldnontdoulas #havenscreamery #selfacceptance #selfcare #motherhood #selfcompassion #tuesdaythoughts #ldnont #unlearning #ldnontdoulas #tuesdayramblings #beyourownfriend
They basically think I’m the best mom there ever was right now because #muffinsforlunch 🍽 also, I couldn’t love this picture more despite how dark it is because it basically looks like nighttime outside today. This captures their personalities PERFECTLY 😆 Carter the sweet, follow the rules, hooray for muffins 🙌🏻 and Benz the ‘let me see how many muffins I can sneak’ mischievous look and I love them both for it. It always blows my mind how they are both my children and how completely different they are from one another. They make my world go round and today I’m just really soaking up this age because I feel like it’s the age I’ll always always always remember them at 😭 it’s the best #tuesdayramblings #tuesdayramblings #muffinsforlunch
Post hols ramble alert 😉⚠️ @emirates upped their game (although not quite...!) on today’s flight home 😅🙌🏻✈️ The first in-flight meal included #Vegan cheese 😍🧀😱 It was all very tasty 😋🍽 Although for the ‘afternoon tea’ I got given a cottage cheese sandwich, which they then swapped for a banana 🤣🍌🤦🏼‍♀️ I alsoooo may have had a large plain Veggie burger McDonalds meal at the airport before flying....so it’s hardly as though I needed it 🙈😬🐷 Anyone else eat as much as humanely possible on the last day of holiday? 😟 I think it’s the fact that a bikini / skimpy outfits are no longer necessary 😂🤷🏼‍♀️ Today I’ve indulged to the max (I came home to a #Vegan falafel @_goodfellaspizza too, which I may add, was equisite) 🍕🌱🙊 After a holiday of food & booze I’m SO ready to get back to normality, including getting back on the #SmartPoints wagon 😩🙏🏻 I’m out for dinner tomorrow night so I know that won’t be on plan... 🤔 However, I’m back to my work routine from tomorrow, so rather than keep putting normality off, I’ll be making sure I get a decent brekky & lunch on the go 🤓🌈 For my own sanity, I’ll be commencing #WednesdayWeighIn next week...Cos quite frankly I just don’t feel like stepping on the scales quite yet ⚖️ I’m only human after all! 💘 Let’s wait until I’ve had opportunity to get some #RainbowFood back in me shall weeeeeee?! 🥑🍆🍅🥝🍓🤪 Whilst I’m a firm believer in drawing a line & starting afresh ASAP, including attending regular weigh ins as it’s often not as bad as it seems, this week, I’m keen to get back on the wagon by focusing on how I feel, as opposed to what I weigh ✨💖 That’s the beauty of @ww.uk, do what works best for your own happiness & wellness 🤗❤️ #TuesdayRamblings #WellnessThatWorks #HolidayBlues #smartpoints #wellnessthatworks #holidayblues #wednesdayweighin #rainbowfood #tuesdayramblings #vegan
Just a casual 😅 and sweaty 😝 post workout selfie! Some of you may have already seen it show up in my stories and I had to think for a long time to actually post this one on my feed, because, just to be honest, I'm still not very comfortable with this kind of photos of well.. Me. Why? I really don't know how to explain that one, so I only give y'all one word: Insecurities 😌 But.. I'm a bit proud of my little tummy 👏🏼 This is what hard work and dedication for a damn long year looks like 💪🏼 The last year has been a wake up call to quit the shit and get fit. When I started this adventure, it was all about "I want to be skinny". Now it's all about "I want to be strong" 😏
After a crazy busy morning of rushing around getting everyone ready for school, going to Carter’s pumpkin patch field trip, then taking Carter to therapy and picking Benz up early from school..both boys are currently napping and I am enjoying a little afternoon pick-me-up in peace (with my new mug in hand thanks to @this.little.wandering) 🙌🏻 I should be tackling some to do’s buuuut I just don’t wanna 😆 Lottie’s crib came in today, and it just feels official now! Everything is starting to come together and that just makes me so excited. Going to spend the afternoon tackling some to do’s and soaking up my boys, then it’s off to Carter’s soccer game, home for baths, then bed. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can. Tuesday’s are so busy for us and I’m all like 😴 #tuesdayramblings #tuesdayramblings
This plate is a perfect metaphor for life right now...a delicious mess 😜 anyone else feel like good stuff suddenly gets thrown at you in the most unexpected ways? 🧐it’s exactly like salsa getting thrown all over some veggies 🤣 . . . But really, it might be a mess...but it could still be amazing 🤗 . . Sautéed green beans & Delicata Squash (leftovers 👏), greens, rotisserie chicken, and @traderjoes salsa 🍅 . . . #tuesdayramblings #fitfoodie #homemade #healthyeats #goodeats #squash #traderjoes #delicata #delicatasquash #eatyourveggies #veggies #fall #flavorsoffall #spinach #healthyplate #greenbeans #chicken #salsa #fresh #sweatpink #fitfluential #wellness #wellbeing #homemade #greenbeans #chicken #sweatpink #fitfoodie #delicata #salsa #traderjoes #spinach #goodeats #delicatasquash #fitfluential #flavorsoffall #tuesdayramblings #squash #wellbeing #healthyeats #veggies #eatyourveggies #fresh #wellness #fall #healthyplate
Forever inspired, by the grace, rhythm and humility with which the Sema is preformed. Different angles allow us to feel different sentiments. In love with this view. An inspiration for new works. . . . . . . . . #tuesdayramblings #artinspiration . #ink #penandink #inkdrawing #art #contemporayart #dervish #interiordesign #frameart #middleeasternart #turkishart #happyplace #islamicart #islamicartgallery #artcollector #doha #instaart #inktober2018 #islamicartgallery #dervish #ink #penandink #interiordesign #happyplace #doha #middleeasternart #inkdrawing #islamicart #turkishart #art #artcollector #contemporayart #artinspiration #tuesdayramblings #inktober2018 #frameart #instaart
I’ve been trying to be intentional this week about taking time for myself and family...giving myself semi normal working hours. I have to do this every now and then to get back on track. The woes of a workaholic I guess? Spending the evenings outside again, walking, playing, and just breathing...makes such a huge difference. Living...happens on the other side of a screen. #life #tuesdayramblings #mentalhealth #happylife #balancedlife #mentalhealth #life #tuesdayramblings #happylife #balancedlife
It’s mid-October and we still have days that feel like summer. I loved the light streaming in this morning whilst I had my coffee. I was inspired by how stark the difference is between light and darkness, and how light reflects upon colour (not sure if I’m making sense). The effect of light on colour or the absence of it reminds me of the effect of heart on the ego. ❤️ . . . . . . #tuesdayramblings #artinspiration . #ink #penandink #inkdrawing #art #contemporayart #dervish #interiordesign #frameart #middleeasternart #turkishart #happyplace #islamicart #islamicartgallery #artcollector #doha #instaart #inktober2018 #islamicartgallery #dervish #ink #penandink #interiordesign #happyplace #doha #middleeasternart #inkdrawing #islamicart #turkishart #art #artcollector #contemporayart #artinspiration #tuesdayramblings #inktober2018 #frameart #instaart
The past few days I've been glued to my computer editing sessions, answering emails, responding to inquiries, scheduling sessions and trying to keep up with this whole social media thing. Business has picked up quite a bit this past month or so and while I'm so thrilled, the temptation is to keep doing more and keep adding more to my plate. Be efficient. Be productive. Be impossibly responsive to every email or message. While this is great, I'm realizing how quickly my family and other personal aspects of my life can be neglected. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trying to find the balance between being "successful" in my business and “present” in my personal life has eluded me because oh man..it is SO easy to get wrapped up in what I "should be" doing according to everybody else in order to be successful. But today I'm taking a break and I'm going to stop and smell the roses. I'm going to tell myself that it's OK if I don't finish that blog post today, immediately respond to every inquiry that slides into my inbox, or to finish editing that gallery right this second. It's ok to take a break from instant gratification and instantly gratifying others to just be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because in the big scheme of things, I really just want to love Jesus and love others through this business of mine as well as in my personal life. I just want to show a little bit more of Him to others by how I love and serve my family, friends, and clients. And what better way to serve them than to be acknowledge their value and to be fully present with them today. #tuesdayramblings (Image I snapped while assisting the amazing @lauraannewatson) . . #weschephotography #weddingphotograher #georgiaweddingphotographer #momboss #girlboss #joyfulcreative #therisingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #atlantaphotographer #georgiaphotographer #southernweddingphotographer #atlantaweddingphotographer #georgiaweddingphotographer #simpleandelegant #hustlingmama #graceoverperfection #bepresent #bepatient #itsoktonotbebusy #atlantaweddingphotographer #georgiaweddingphotographer #graceoverperfection #girlboss #bepatient #simpleandelegant #southernweddingphotographer #itsoktonotbebusy #georgiaphotographer #atlantaphotographer #momboss #weschephotography #communityovercompetition #bepresent #therisingtidesociety #weddingphotograher #joyfulcreative #hustlingmama #tuesdayramblings
After returning from a delicious, fun-filled family holiday, I can’t help but feel a little ‘blue’ despite my excitement for the last few months of 2018! This beautiful autumn sunshine 🍂 is all I need need though, so keep it coming! Do you ever feel a little blue after a holiday? Here’s to friends and family and wishing everyone lived a little closer this time of year. I leave you with a little sneak peek of a beautiful maternity shoot I did recently. #lymeregis #maternityphotography #devonmaternityphotographer #maternity #tuesdaymotivation #tuesdayramblings #postholidayblues #lymeregis #postholidayblues #devonmaternityphotographer #maternity #maternityphotography #tuesdayramblings #tuesdaymotivation
"The most difficult times for many of us are the ones we give ourselves."🌪️ _ I am my own worst enemy. I get inside my head + talk myself around and around until I don't know what up is from down. Circling the drain. Talking myself up, only to come full circle with my doubts + insecurities to bring myself back down. Constantly scanning ahead to the future preparing for anything that may harm me or knock me off balance. Or I get stuck in the past, thinking about how things should have been or could have gone. My mind, in it's best efforts to help protect me from pain or disappointment, is actually the thing creating the suffering. _ Which is why I am so grateful for this practice. It is mine, and mine alone. I step on to my mat, move + breath, no judgements or expectations. To learn + grow. A safe space to be open, to be me. Showing up messy as hell + batshit crazy. Unapologetically. A sanctuary. Home. _ It takes effort + diligence to learn how to be compassionate and patient with ourselves. It's not the sort of thing you get right once + you're forever free of your inner critic. There is no getting it 'right', just the willingness to try, and the desire to be a little bit better than the day before. And when we fail...not beating ourselves up about it and instead offering ourselves even more love + understanding!! _ #takingmyownadvice #practicewhatyoupreach #tuesdayramblings #mindfulness #awareness #meditation #compassion #willing #understanding #forgiveness #selflove #mindfuck #myownworstenemy #myownworstcritic #progressnotperfection #practice #home #downdog #yogastrongstudios #strongandfly #strongbodyandmind #meditation #mindfulness #compassion #home #selflove #willing #awareness #myownworstenemy #practice #mindfuck #forgiveness #strongandfly #understanding #downdog #tuesdayramblings #yogastrongstudios #strongbodyandmind #practicewhatyoupreach #takingmyownadvice #progressnotperfection #myownworstcritic
Consumerism faith has to end. ✨✨✨✨✨ Hear me out. Yes, God loves you wildly and endlessly. Yes He sent His only Son to die for you—little ol’ you—and still would have if it were ONLY you. . ✨However, the entire point is to have a relationship with God. The PERSON of Jesus. Not a one-sided take all. . . ✨Your earthly relationships would die hard and fast if you only spoke and never listened; received and never gave; focused on yourself and never them. . ✨Biblical life application is real, BUT what if we didn’t twist every ure to meet our own needs and learned a little something about the King? ✨✨✨✨✨✨ . . . . . . . . #tbr #selflessfaith #currentlyreading #amreading #coffeeandbooks #faithinspiration #consumerismfaith #booksandcoffee #whattoread #bookish #igbooks #booknerd #booklove #loverofbooks #bibliophile #bookworm #bookqueen #authorsofinstagram #jesusthoughts #septemberreads #cosy #bibletime #aumtumn #tuesdayramblings #booksandcoffee #currentlyreading #septemberreads #booknerd #booklove #selflessfaith #authorsofinstagram #whattoread #bibliophile #coffeeandbooks #bookworm #consumerismfaith #bookqueen #tbr #igbooks #loverofbooks #bibletime #cosy #aumtumn #bookish #faithinspiration #tuesdayramblings #amreading #jesusthoughts

I am insecure. At 42 I still am. #tuesdayramblings I am unable to just have a decor feed because I have too much on my heart to write. I now have young girls following me and if I shed a light to them, then I am doing my job. It is ok to feel insecure. It is what you do with those feelings that can be a positive or negative outcome. I have always been insecure about my scars. I have a lot of them. You can see the one in the middle of my forehead. However, now I look at it as something that no one else has. I have a story behind it and that makes me unique and special. What if we took our insecurities and made them into something special? Something to think about on this fine Tuesday.

It only got up to 85 here today, which is basically winter weather. I was excited to finally get to wear my @poorpitifulpearl shrug again without sweating! (Well, at least in the AC.) • The kids and I hadn’t left the house since Saturday, so we ran to a kids’ consignment shop in town to pick up jeans for Everett (due to aforementioned cold weather). I only found one pair of jeans I liked, but did score a pair or Mini Boden shorts for next summer for $3.50 👌🏼 • My husband just texted that he was leaving work and I was going to ask why he was leaving so early—then I looked at my clock and saw it was 5:40 😳. Where did the day go? And who’s making us dinner?😬 • How do you go to bed before 11 when your spouse is a night owl? This is an ongoing issue for us! Plus I need more sleep than he does (or at least more than he thinks he does)! 😴 • I used Beautycounter’s Resurfacing Peel last night (I use it twice a week) and my skin is SO soft. Like crazy soft. Have I mentioned before how much I love that stuff? 🤔🤯 #tuesdayramblings #itssimplytuesday #tuesdayramblings #itssimplytuesday
A tiny bit overdue. A #throwback on my sketch piece exhibited at Pavilion Mall, Bukit Bintang. A joint collaboration with KLUSK & Pavilion management.
