Merry Christmas!!

Just wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and hope that amongst all the festivities you remember the most important reason for Christmas, Jesus Christ. Thank you for coming to earth to be our Saviour and die on the cross for our sins. We can't think of the manger without thinking about the cross. They go together.

Peace and love to all you this Christmas.

My new favourite thing! Pilates! I'm a beginner and went to my first class on Friday! I think I may be hooked. I'm going to my second class at 12pm today. It seemed so effortless at first but then my poor tummy muscles were in spasm the whole week-end!! I couldn't even laugh properly.

But yes, I am going back! call me a sucker for punishment or whatever.

Anyone else out there do Pilates? I'd love some tips!

Christmas is Coming!

This year I've found it a bit a harder to get into the Christmas spirit! I think the recession vibes have given us all a bit of a knock down this year, but also an opportunity to get more creative and see what gifts we can come up with on a tight budget! I think we should all start using our talents and make some stuff this year!

I'm definitely gonna start researching some things to make cheaply from home that will also make great gifts!

Please leave me a comment if you have any ideas!

5 Things on my current Fabulista:
1. Smashbox cosmetics (love their stuff esp. the primer and tinted moisturiser)
2. Short shorts (have never worn these in my life! Just bought one at Meltz the w-end!)
3. The idea of getting a small tattoo (still debating what and where...I have some ideas)
4. Ipanema sandals (again for the 2nd year in a row! sooo comfy)
5. Purple nailpolish by Essie (did I mention my fav colour is purple!)

Let me know whats on your Fabulista!

3 weeks to 10k!

Ok, so I'm starting to freak out a little! Its less than 3 weeks to the darn 10k that I went and committed myself to!! I had a little meltdown last night where I wanted to quit, but a friend of mine called me and gave me a 'swift kick in the butt' figuratively. So, I got my butt into gear and went run/walking 5km on a treadmill this morning! I nearly DIED! What am I trying to run 10k's for I ask myself?? Madness I tell you!

But, my over-achiever personality will not let me quit, so I will continue to train for the 10, even though I'm not sure I'm gonna make it and just do the best I can!

Felt like posting another pic of the wedding, just because it makes me smile.
