Oh bop, fashion!

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

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”

Sweet as

Kia ora. I just had the best start to the year. A wee trip over the ditch to NZ for a wedding (Em and Jez) and a road trip around the North Island (with Liz). As well as the usual giggles to be had over their pronunciation of ‘six’ and ‘fish and chips’(fush and chupsContinue reading “Sweet as”

The year in review

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Or so they sing. It’s that time when you look back on your year and think “Damn” or “Dammn girl” or “Damn it Daniel. Back at it again with the white vans”. I saw this thang on Instagram where all good inspirational quotes can be found andContinue reading “The year in review”

This week I’ve been sick. Sick as a dog. Feeling poorly as our British friends would say. Now this seems outrageous to me. I’ve been dedicated to my to-do list of eating well, sleep and exercise and still I’m in a snot-faced, cough-up-a-lung, sinus-balloon-head state. How can I deal with this when I often smuglyContinue reading “Feeling Poorly”

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”
