Negative People..

“If you propose to speak ask yourself, is it necessary, is it kind?”

Someone close to me encountered an extremely hateful and negative person and it just reminded me to self reflect.. 

Am I speaking out of love, what message am I portraying? 
It’s inevitable to come across an “angry person”  however if we remind ourselves that their anger is a direct reflection of themselves in that moment we realise that we don’t need to react or entertain their emotions, that is their inner peace not ours.

I think it’s important to always remain calm in a heated situation, people that raise their voice in anger are looking for a reaction, they want to argue with you and they want to dumb you down to their level.. 

don’t give in to them, remember who you are, take a breath and stay in your light ❤️🌹

Back to business

Well, I’m back from my two week adventure in Spain with my mamma. 

 I can honestly say this has been the best two weeks of my life.. getting to spend quality time searching for shells on the beach to booking a gorgeous hotel and travelling to Benidorm for the night, wow Words can’t explain what a beautiful time it was. 

It’s the little moments that mean the most in life, I find that we can get so caught up and busy in the day to day that before we know it time has flown by and we wish we had those moments to relive.. I can still see my beautiful mother now walking to put her toes in the water, looking back and smiling at me and these are moments I will cherish for as long as I live. 

Now that I’m back in England, it’s time to focus on my goals. Time to push harder than ever before and to keep moving forward. Life is so beautiful, I am blessed ❤️ 

Be Mindful

As I was waiting for my bus to come a very sweet & kind elderly lady stood next to me and we began chatting.

She had missed her bus by 5 minutes so rather than wait another hour she decided to catch the one I was on.. I could tell she just wanted a friend to speak too so I stood and listened to her story.

I learned that 2 years ago, she had a severe stroke which had clearly effected her left side, she usually has someone with her to accompany her on her journeys But she didn’t have anyone today. I could tell she was a little shaken up by the sweat on her forehead and by the way she spoke.. so I asked her if she felt OK?

I learned that as she was trying to get to her tram in time so she could catch the earlier bus she was walking down the street & someone bumped into her quite abruptly..because of this, she needed to sit down and compose herself as she was extremely distraught by this person. This person was the the reason she missed her normal bus home which left her confused and uncomfortable. The sad part is that this person didn’t even apologise to her or take the time to make sure that she was OK before he ran off..

I stood and listened to this woman for about 20 minutes and then accompanied her onto the bus offering to help her carry her shopping then ensured she would be OK before I hugged her and we parted ways..

Moral of the story here is this; don’t be so consumed by your busy life that you don’t respect and care for those around you!!! It costs NOTHING to be kind & a simple two minutes taken out of your day to help someone can be the difference between them making it home safely versus them lost and confused about where to go..

We NEED to respect and be kind to all of those around us, ESPECIALLY our elders.. they need our love more than we realise.

Hard Work Pays Off

IMG_6445.JPG

I Had a conversation with someone today in which we spoke about our goals and how to be successful..this person was adamant that hard work doesn’t ALWAYS  pay off in the end. They told me that some people work themselves to the bone for years and it just never seems to pay off..

Its simple you guys, I responded by telling them that the reason it didn’t pay off was because they had no purpose, they continued to do the same thing over and over again expecting different results & they never saw success because they were comfortable consistently being average.

There are people in this world that work for years within a company but they never progress and they stay at the same level.. I genuinely cannot comprehend why anyone would want to settle and accept average. It’s so important to continue to grow in whatever field that you’re in and be the best at what you do! I understand not everyone has the same mentality as I do but why go through the motions and be like everyone else in this world?

Know WHY you do what you do & exactly what you want to achieve.. Don’t get stuck in the same routine leading to no where.

Bold, Beautiful Biba

If you love what you do you’ll never work a day in your life.. this is so true. I currently work for House Of Fraser, in Manchester as a Brand Specialist for Biba.I’m so inspired by my brand every single day and it’s an absolute privilege to work with such a beautiful brand.

Stars such as The Beatles, David Bowie, Cher, Mick Jagger & Twiggy have all gotten behind Biba and the 60’s brand is BACK & better than ever.

The history alone is inspiring as Biba was the first department store to open in London post World War 2..

Finally, I’m humbled each day getting to work and be surrounded by like minded individuals and I find inspiration in each person I speak with.. we need to keep ourselves growing and learning to take our selves to our fullest potential and it’s important to keep your vision and focus strong,  I’m so excited for this fashion journey ❤

Strength on dark days

IMG_6192

Some days will be easier than others, some days thoughts of our past arise & we need to accept, acknowledge and realise that it’s ok.

I think it’s important to let yourself feel  not only the good emotions but the bad in order for us that heal, also.. Instead of pushing away the pain of the past or hiding away from the struggle, let yourself be upset, let yourself cry and get angry if you must HOWEVER do NOT unpack and live there.

If we are in a constant state of feeling sorry for ourselves all we are doing is distracting from our progress of our future goals & aspirations.

My final thought is this, it is imperative to acknowledge our emotions however make sure to control them. Keep your head held high my friend and remember how far you’ve come and have to go! You are a warrior and nothing can break you.

Accept what is, let go of what was & have faith in what will be.
