Oh bop, fashion!

You need to just stop
Like can you just not step on my gown?
You need to calm down

Trust your intuition

Have you ever had a feeling that something good or bad was going to happen? Like, you thought about taking the back streets home and then had a sick feeling in your stomach and thought ‘no’ for no apparent reason and found out later there was a crash in that street. Or you meet someoneContinue reading “Trust your intuition”

Law of Attraction

Everything is a vibration, like attracts like, energy out equals energy in. These are ways that the law of attraction has been described. It’s a woo woo one today guys! It can be hard when you want something, not to focus on the lack of it but this is what we must do to attractContinue reading “Law of Attraction”

I do it in on the daily

Over the holidays-hurrah! Rare teacher perk-I followed a ‘magic’ formula for things to do each day that have a positive impact on mind, body and spirit. Behold M-M-W-G-F. A not so catchy acronym for: Move-Meditate-Write-Gratitude-Fun. I did these things on the daily and loved every minute of it and I’d do it again I tellsContinue reading “I do it in on the daily”

Do less

Everyone’s so busy these days. Busy busy busy! It’s the standard reply you hear from everyone you ask, “what are you up to?” “I’m busy”. It’s like a cult. A cult of the busy; dashing between appointments, carrying a baby and a briefcase (if Hollywood movies are anything to go by), sipping coconut lattes outContinue reading “Do less”

Fresh Eyes

I had some Sydney friends, Dave and Caz, in town over the holidays. In the same way that I was enamoured of NZ when I was there, they were taken with Melbourne. Seeing my home town fresh through their eyes reminded me of all the ways Melbourne is great and the beauty of the everyday.Continue reading “Fresh Eyes”

Happy 1st Birthday!

It’s been 1 whole year since I began my blogging journey, shamelessly sharing 34 posts about everything and anything that takes my fancy; self-help, silliness, sobriety, shyness, minimalism, mindfulness, woo woo stuff and 90’s nostalgia. Thanks friend for liking and commenting and sharing and reading. I really truly appreciate it and am sending good vibes,Continue reading “Happy 1st Birthday!”

Yvette vs. world: Spring edition

It’s that time again, spring is springing. Jasmine fills the nostrils, blossoms bloom, baby birdies chirp and the sun comes out (in between rain and gale-force winds if you’re in Melbourne). A perfect time to reflect, renew and try some new things on my quest to being the best version of Vettie I can be.Continue reading “Yvette vs. world: Spring edition”

Is this an act of self-love?

Self-love doesn’t come naturally to most of us but until you can accept and care for and yes, even love yourself, you won’t be able to share your love and joy with your loved ones and unsuspecting members of the public. But what does self-love look like and how can we achieve it? Perhaps itContinue reading “Is this an act of self-love?”

I saw the sign

I see 11’s everywhere. In your dreams? No, just walking around like regular numbers. I check my phone at 11 past each hour. Never seem to miss an 11.11 or a 1.11. I see 111 likes on a Facebook post or in the books in the Kindergarten library. It’s like magic (except for the KinderContinue reading “I saw the sign”
