TGIF

I’m grateful that it’s Friday. I’m looking forward to a big sleep in.a weekend to reenergise my flat batteries.You know you’re pale when the makeup artist who is helping you match your skin tone to foundation announces your shade as…… translucent! That’s right, I don’t have a tone.. I’m see-through.

I’m grateful for warm, snuggley, poncho jackets.. it kept the chill away and looks fabulous (even if I say so myself). I’m also grateful to be awake… it sounds silly but when you’ve struggled to be awake, to go to work, to eat, to breathe through pain.. you begin to appreciate the smallest things in life. Tonight for the first time in eight days I have minimal pain in my gut which means I’m not beyond exhausted (just tired). Yay! On the mend. 

Bossa Nova 

Today I arrived home to a gift I gave myself. I finally tracked down a Bossa Nova dress in a size that fits my bust (ah girl problems!). I really love the personal touch that Kitten D’amour add to their packaging – hand written note.. gift wrapping..stickers.. ribbon.. it’s perfect. Yay! I can’t believe that this little unicorn has found her forever home. 

Confidence 

Today my colleague and I presented two topics at SEPLA (Special Education Conference).. and for the first time in a very long time, I felt confident in myself, happy, and whole. It’s not easy to present in front of a crowd.. but it’s easier when you love your dress! It’s an even sweeter moment when that same dress a few weeks ago was too tight to wear! That sounds shallow.. but it is not. When you are happy and proud of who you are.. you can move mountains. If a dress makes you feel more confident in yourself.. well watch out mountain ranges! I’m so proud of us and grateful for this experience. Thank you Megan 💕 and thank you to our Karonga family for your support x ​

Voodoo! 

I tracked down a unicorn dress this week!!! It’s going to be mine! And I couldn’t be more excited. Just love the colour 😍! Voodoo Kitten collar dress in teal… woohoo! 

Love Me Tender 

Today I wore my ‘love me tender’ cowl dress by Kitten D’amour for the first time… at first I was a little unsure but I received so many compliments. It definitely turned out to be a ‘feel good’ dress. Big confidence booster! I love the lace detail with nude underlay that feels sexy but actually covers everything! ​

Zip me up!

When the dress finally fits! Today I zipped up my Kitten D’amour Bella Señora wiggle! Yay! All those sweaty sessions at @hybrid__training are paying off. I need to lose weight for my health.. doesn’t mean that there aren’t other benefits though! ​
