Designing ‘Custom’ Garters…

Designing Garters - DiamondGirl

This is a huge step for me, one that I feel I’ve made very early on in my business career. Maybe this is what sets me apart? Honestly though… I haven’t really thought too deeply about it…I just wanted to see if I could do it.

Coffee Table Book no.2…

Pia Jane Bijkerk’s gorgeous book My Heart Wanders is my Friday coffee table book this week.
 It is ‘A Celebration of taking risks, letting go and making a home wherever you are’. It is full of stunning styling and photography, and beautiful and inspiring narrative. I find it is a book to dip into as most coffee table books are but this is one I come back to more than any other at the moment…

I feel I can relate to her and the experiences she has had, in some small way resonate within my own heart. Pia writes of her heart wandering…”I am more than inspired, I am overwhelmed with desire to be back in Europe. I felt so at home there – a feeling I had forgotten until I walked those time layered avenues. In Paris, I felt like the whole city welcomed me with open arms, and my passion, drive and desires were free to just be.”
My own trip to Paris this year filled my heart with desire and longing, it is such a wonderful city, I love how it inspires and lifts your spirit and fills your soul. I love travelling and especially love cities, I must visit Barcelona again soon it’s been too long since my boots walked las ramblas…well that will be a post for another time.
Enjoy your weekend,
I’m off to enjoy the sparkle and magic that is… Disney on Ice!

It’s funny how you can start something with an abundance of enthusiasm but find those little bits of real life take away more and more time.

creativity…losing the fear

I often do my best ‘thinking’ when I’m doing something that requires very little thought…sweeping the floors, or relaxing when taking a hot shower. It is those few minutes of time alone, where I can let my mind drift from the mundane everydayness to daydream and ponder. This is when I find my natural creativity flows, however there is something that often stops me in my tracks…fear…
