Autumn Love Letter

Dear Autumn,

I feel like we need to have a chat! You’re giving me mixed signals.

You’re not consistent. I’d like to know where I stand. When we go out, I don’t know how to be with you…

You’re blowing hot and cold….

I get excited when I see you shining , I get so excited and all dressed up for you and then usually by the end of the day, you just switch and turn cold on me, it often catches me off guard. Like yesterday for example, you were so bright and chirpy, I loved it!

Today you’re so miserable and moody… Autumn, I can’t even lie… I think about Summer alot, we had a better connection. πŸ˜” πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ‚.

This was actually a post from my Instagram earlier this week and I thought it would be nice to also share with my fellow blog family.

My relationship with Autumn is such that I often begin to feel the winter blues as soon as we encroach October/ November. I think I’m one of those people who suffers from ‘ sad ‘Season Affective Disorder’.

I think Autumn is beautiful, the colours of the leaves, and conkers and the sun peaking through the shedding trees really makes you stop and appreciate nature and makes you realise that absolutely everything in life goes through a period of transition and a season of change, just like we do ourselves, physically and mentally.

Stay tuned for my next post on ‘Fighting the Winter Blues.’

Remember you can also catch me on

10 Steps to Motivation!

“You cannot act like Flip Flops and expect to be treated like Louboutins.” πŸ‘ 

Sorry, we’re just not having it!

Man!!! I love this quote!

….But isn’t it just sooooo true!

You can’t put in 1% effort and expect 100% outcome and this is with everything in life.

We all have can’t be bothered days but everyday we choose not to be bothered it will not push a better tomorrow.

The more you push in today, the further you’ll get, in tomorrow! -Mummanopoly

(Did I hear preach girl!) – Thank you!

Hustle today for a better tomorrow, you’ll thank yourself for it!

As a busy mum it’s ridiculously easy to forget about yourself and your ambitions or goals.

By the time everything’s done…. (let me not bring out the list of things to do) work, cooking, cleaning, kids activities, homework, shopping, laundry…errr excuse me πŸ‘‹πŸΎ and where is time for me?

Uh huh, precisely, a conscious effort to stay motivated is so so so important!… Otherwise you’ll be chilling in your flip flops whilst everyone walks past you in their Louboutins. Okay OK! That was a dry joke but you get the gist right…

Have a look at some of the things below which keep me motivated.

10 Steps to Motivate Yourself!
