Smile more

Hey – it’s June already! TO spite the fact that the temperatures are dropping madly and getting up in the dark is the worst torture – I love June. It’s the middle of 2014 and on the 21st it’s the Winter Solstice (also the shortest day of the year) and after that the days start getting longer again – YEAH!.

This June is also extra special as it’s full of epic birthday celebrations – starting with my Mum’s 70th and ending on Alexis’s big 40th – with a couple of other birthdays sprinkled in between. All in all a fabulous month to be happy and grateful – to remember to smile more.

Words to end your week with

As much as I have loved this short week, trying to squeeze five days of work into three really has thrown my work routine out of whack – as a result my “to do” list for today is laughable. Never mind – I will survive, especially if aided by a strong espresso and a healthy chunk of chocolate.

So, to end your week on an enlightened note, here are the wise words of Ernest Hemingway (beautifully illustrated by Lisa Congdon).

Hope your Friday is super productive too.

Happy Monday

I have my moments and last week I spotted this brilliant graphic and it could not have been more true.
Let’s hope this week is a little less tricky!

Happy Monday folks.

Yikes, it has been far too long since my last Wise Words post! To get us back on track for the Weekly Wise Words here are some very pertinent sentiments to refer to daily.

If you, like me, are having a crazy week and can’t seem to find time to pause and breathe, then here is a little mid week motivation to keep your spirits lifted and your heart pointed in the right direction.

I am afraid I cannot find any solid reference as to who’s quote it is and who did the lettering, but it seems so relevant that I simply had to post it. If you know more about its origins then please let me know.

Have a happy and productive Wednesday folks.

Wise Words to start your week with

Can you believe it, the first week of December is here? If you are also feeling overwhelmed with life in general, then this gorgeous wise words typographic reminder, from Colette Creative, will ring true for you.

Remember to stop and take a deep breath – this too shall pass.

Always be yourself

Wow – Thursday has arrived already! Although I love short weeks and the prospect of the weekend being around the corner is very appealing, I can’t help but think that time is flying by way too fast (okay, now I sound like my Gran).

Perhaps John Mayer coined it better: “Stop this train I want to get off and go home again, I can’t take the speed it’s moving in, I know I can’t but honestly won’t someone stop this train”

Anyhow, if you are also feeling a little rushed and out of steam – here are some wise words to keep you on track, and if that doesn’t work, there is a poster with some cats riding bikes to get you going again.

Thanks to the clever WEAREYAWN for the motivation.

Always be yourself

Adventure starts here

It’s a fresh (and freezing) Monday morning here in Cape Town – the beginning of another exciting week. I hope you have a good one – make to the most of it.

I am a sucker for typography and this morning I was inspired by this piece by Zachary Smith. It reminded me so much of our dear friends Desmond and Toni (from DNA Photography).
This one is for you guys, hope you are having a blast enjoying the European Summer. Keep doing what you do so well – you guys rock!

Wise Words to end your week on

The past couple of weeks have been a bit of a roller coaster and I am feeling a little battered and bruised.
Today Gandhi’s words couldn’t be any more true – you must be the change you wish to see in the world.
