Shibori give me moreeee...

4 comments

Dickhead title but man could I be addicted.. I bought my gorgeous girlfriend and business partner Kate an experience for her B Day and of course experiences are not much unless shared so got myself a ticket too..

We went to the workshop at The School by Joanna Fowles I have always wanted to go to a workshop there and this was the first time I have treated myself to one.. Oh boy did it deliver. Not only do you get to be hands on but the people you are there with are equally as excited as yourself and so much fun to be around..






I have more little bits to show you but will do that at a later date.. we dyed leather, silk and even my duvet cover so I will share those once made into cushions and on my bed etc :)

Kate and I have decided from this point forwards all gifts must be experiences shared ones if possible but experiences either way.. and no not spa stuff but learning and growing ones.

What do you give your besties for their B days? Have you been to The School?

Loyalty..

29 comments

There is something that possibly ranks higher than love for me and that is loyalty.. true loyalty is born from an unconditional love, a connection that has you want to ride out any ups and downs that life chucks at you to ensure that person stays in your life and is the happiest you can make them given any circumstance.

I am a fiercely loyal person. I take attacks on my friends to heart like they were my own. When my friends are upset I stress about them and when they are just not right I worry about them until I see them smile again.

I would drop anything and go anywhere for a friend in need and I am lucky enough to have a husband that gets that and would do just the same.

I wrote a post a while back about how it is ok to loose friend ships and I still stand by the fact that it is but I do think that if the friendship was true that you would want to fight for it, you would want to work through it and pop out the other side stronger.

It was my birthday this week and there were a few well wishes missing since last year due to lost connections. It could have made me sad but it didn't. I feel so lucky to have had the ones that were not loyal enough to fight fall by the way side leaving me with the quality people to surround myself with.

I always have an amazing reflective day on big occasions as they are yearly and you can really look back at where you were 12 months before and compare. I choose to always find the good in the year and lets just leave the shitty past bits as in the past.. 'cos they are shit so no need to take them forward into the future huh?!

Are you a loyal friend? Has it stung you? Do you reflect much?

The people that make you want to be a better person....

The other day I was over on Kontent Blog sharing my favourite link right now and this was it...

Tessa White Chooses Her Favourite Link

This is the instagram account of Mark Bustos, a hairdresser to the stars who works 6 days a week and then on Sundays goes out to the streets and offers homeless people a haircut. He simply says to each person,‘I want to do something nice for you today’.

His feed reminds me of H.O.N.Y but I find it even more uplifting, as the responses from those that he touches are always positive and his haircuts are amazing; they truly transform the person and I have no doubt it works as much on the inside as it does on the outer. 

Who would ever guess this guy was homeless?'

What will you do today to make someone feel special?
