Best of 2017

As the sun sets on 2017 and prepares to rise on 2018, come with me on a journey through time and space to see my favourites… I’m Bulletproof, nothing to lose: My previous fixation with wine has shifted to an obsession with coffee. I go to bed dreaming of my morning coffee (I’m not anContinue reading “Best of 2017”

Shift your state

How do you get out of a low mood, shift anger, fling off heaviness and come out the other side feeling better? There are no rainbows without rain but try saying that to someone feeling crappy and don’t be surprised if they hurl a chair in your general direction. Feelings are a part of lifeContinue reading “Shift your state”

Socially Sober

I spent 2 weeks off social media and survived! How did I do it? How did I find it? What have I learnt? What did I miss in the land of the Kardashians and cat videos? As part of my Yvette vs. the world challenges, a dear reader-thanks Melissa-suggested a social media break. At firstContinue reading “Socially Sober”

All in

I’ve been thinking about the advice we are sometimes given by well meaning parents, teachers and members of the general public. ‘Don’t put all your eggs in one basket’, ‘have something to fall back on’, ‘get a balanced education’, ‘don’t rock the boat’. Obviously this is coming from a place of protection and concern andContinue reading “All in”

Yvette vs. the world

I’m going to give myself challenges like I’m a little guinea pig. Things I want to try or do or experience. I’m a scaredy cat though so I doubt there will be anything involving heights or going upside down or spinning around. This may need to be considered on a case by case basis. I’veContinue reading “Yvette vs. the world”

These are a few of my favourite things

Don’t get me wrong, I love raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens as much as the next gal but there are some additions I’d like to make to this song. Here are a few more of my favourite things. British crime dramas with dapper detectives: Sherlock, Midsomer Murders and Broadchurch. Something about the floppyContinue reading “These are a few of my favourite things”

Good Morning Sunshine

If you told me previously I’d be getting up before 5am I would’ve called you a God damn liar! But I am now a bonafide early bird and loving it. The first 45 minutes of how you spend your day have been found to have the biggest impact on the quality of the rest ofContinue reading “Good Morning Sunshine”

Are you there Universe? It’s me…

Are you there Universe? It’s me Margaret but most people call me Yvette. Don’t worry about the boobs, it’s all about the booty now. But seriously, I’ve been patient, I’ve been good, doing my thang but feeling a bit low. How can I keep the vibes high in tricky times? It was so easy toContinue reading “Are you there Universe? It’s me…”

Joy and Abundance

Hi weavers! I hope 2017 is off to an amazing start! I’ve got some exciting things I’m looking forward to this year and thought I’d share them with you. My affirmation for this year is, “I move deliberately towards my greatest joy and abundance”. Do you have a word or affirmation for this year? DailyContinue reading “Joy and Abundance”

Throw everything at it!

I’ve been making changes in my life. Daily meditation and EFT. Soberness. Journalling and dreaming. One of my inspirers, Denise Duffield-Thomas, says about manifesting that, “you might as well throw everything at it” In that spirit this is what I’ve been doing lately. Daily Meditation: Shuffling Gabrielle Bernstein’s meditation albums on Apple Music and doingContinue reading “Throw everything at it!”
