Do you have a perfect hour? I’m more of a morning person 🌞.
I wasn't always that way. In my younger days I could easily sleep until noon 💤🛌🏽, But as I've gotten older and now that I have children, the mornings are the best time for me to have some time to myself and set the tone for my day. A little meditation 🧘🏽♀️, prayer 🙏🏽, and yoga 🤸🏽♀️ andI'm off to a great start. ❇︎
When’s your perfect hour of the day? Why do you love it?

If it costs you your peace, it's too expensive 💕
Give up the things that cause you stress.
Give up the things that keep you up at night.
Cultivate the things that make you actually happy.
Enjoy the moments of peace that get scarcer and scarcer as we get older.
Spend your time wisely, don't funnel all your cash into things that don't make you a richer and more content because of it.
If what makes you happy is doing things that create memories that you'll look back on, do it.
If it costs you your peace, it's too expensive 💕

Que tenga una súper semana, chicas,
w ι т н l o v e,
🎹 I bought myself a present 🎁
Ever since I gave myself a room in the house (it’s my office but it’s soooo much more than that) I’ve been thinking about “me time”.... What does that mean to me? I mean sure, we all love a spa date or a lunch with friends - but these are treats. What actually makes me happy in a deeper, more fulfilled way? Listening to music always has always soothed my soul but I’ve realised over the last few months that I miss making music. Mum will laugh when she reads this, considering the moaning I did during piano lessons, but playing my favourite songs all by myself always let me escape into a special wee world. So I’m going to try to get back in there. I’ve dropped a whole £25 on an 80s relic off Gumtree. Opening the box took me right back to my 7th birthday and my first keyboard, complete with “wake me up before you go go” as the demo tune 🤣 I don’t know what throwback joy awaits - it’s my treat for finishing my mountain of work today. But I’m ridiculously excited about it 😆

Enjoying a few quiet moments before the monkeys wake up 🤫
"Books are made out of books."
- Cormac McCarthy
👆🏼How true is that? My best life happens through this formula:
👉🏼 Reading to inspire new thoughts
👉🏼 Exercise to move them through me
👉🏼 Interpretation (art and writing) to send them out of me.
I didn't read a book for at least 3 years after my son was born, and my mental state reflected it. I felt exhausted, one-tracked, like something was missing. Since July, I've ingested all of these (plus Girl, Wash Your Face by @msrachelhollis
- not pictured because I promptly mailed my mom 😊) and feel inspired beyond measure.
Lest we underestimate the power of books! 📚 What are you reading right now?
Lash naps... 💆🏽♀️the new beauty sleep 💟
My first "miracle morning" is in the 📚 and let me tell you it was AMAZING!
First of all I got to workout with @thesimplethingswd
bright and early (5am) but besides @shaunt
kicking our butts and yelling through the tv it was peaceful😂 The house was quiet, the kiddos were all sleeping and it was just us.
Then I got to shower in peace without my kids coming in and telling me that I needed to get out as they needed privacy in the bathroom😂 while I was already halfway through my shower! It happened to me the other day and Kennedy was dead serious. She wanted me to exit the bathroom mid shower so SHE could have her own privacy. I learned that privacy is no longer a thing when you have kids.🙈 Then...( I am still in shock) I got to drink HOT (ya that's right) HOT coffee and the whole cup while I wrote in my journal, read my book and completed the 6 " life S.A.V.E.R.S" from the book "The Miracle Morning". Now I don't want to get too ahead of myself and say that this was the bee's knees (even though it really was!) BUT a workout, privacy, HOT ☕, silence (meditation) & reading all before my kiddos woke up was golden and worth the 5am wake up call. It truly was a #miraclemorning
Crazy? Maybe to some but I know for all of you that have kids I just blew your mind with all of things that I got to do sans kids before 7am.😂😝 Sound like something you would like to incorporate into your morning routine? Comment below and I'd love to have you join me! We can encourage, support and hold each other accountable! #silenceisgolden #metime #selfcare #5minutejournal #whatareyougratefulfor #accountability #momlife #busymama #momof3soontobe4 #2ndtrimester #2bmindset #mindsetiseverything #likesheownstheplace
Just finished my first workout as a 30 year old!!!! I’m so glad I’m starting 30 as the healthiest version of myself, because a few years ago I was far from that. I was tired most of the time, had barely any strength or endurance & hated working out. When I found a simple plan I could follow for life, I decided I wouldn’t be going back to the way I felt before and I’ve kept that promise to myself for over 2 years now. I’ve stumbled along the way, but kept myself accountable sharing this journey here for almost 2 years. Thanks to those of you who have been here with me since the beginning and those who are new. Thanks for supporting me and cheering me on. Here’s to the next 30 years, feeling happier & healthier than ever. PS: I’d love to show you how simple this is and how you can do it too. See my stories or shoot me a message, I have a special discount for someone today in honor of my birthday!
So my first solo adventure is complete 🙌🏻 I may have chickened out of Croatia but I’m so glad I did! With such beautiful scenery and the most friendly people Downings has been amazing 😍 Highly recommend everyone to do a bit of soloizing at some point in their life. As challenging as this was, it’s been the best thing I’ve ever done and feeling super proud of myself ❤️ #solotravel #soloizing #downings #donegal #thesingingpub #selfcare #metime
Die letzte Woche war echt intensiv und ein paar Sachen, die mir sonst sehr sehr wichtig sind, sind einfach hinten übergefallen. 🤨
Tja, so ist das eben manchmal in Hochzeiten…🚀
Umso mehr genieße ich es, das ab sofort wieder aufzugleisen und viel raus zu gehen. Gestern Abend zum Guincho Beach und heute früh ins Wäldchen, um zu 🧘meditieren und wieder ein wenig aufzutanken. Happy Weekend! ❤
Was machst du heute Schönes?
