Hooray it’s mid-week already! This week is flying by because Monday was a public holiday in the UK so only a four day week for me before it’s the weekend again. This long weekend I was up in Scotland (near Aberdeen) to experience a real Scottish tradition called the Highland Games. Oh what fun we had! You can see some photos of my Scottish adventure on my Instagram account (@dutchessroz). Anyway just a quick mid-week inspirational post from me today – it is Hump Day after all :)
“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.” Roald Dahl.
I love this quote – I think it’s so important to be passionate! I also thought this quote was appropriate for this week as I am off to see Matilda the musical (based on the famous book by Roald Dahl) tomorrow night. Matilda was one of my favourite books growing up! Hope you all have a Happy Hump Day and may the rest of your week fly by :)
Hello! It’s midweek again so time for some weekly motivation. I stumbled across this quote recently and think it’s so true. I mean, when are you really ever going to be ready for anything – now is as good a time as any! Do you agree? Happy Hump Day!
“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.” – Hugh Laurie
Hello! Boy am I glad it’s hump day/midweek today. Why? Because I am totally counting down the days until the weekend. It’s not because of something specifically amazing I am looking forward to this weekend but more because this week I am on a 5 day juice detox. I know it sounds gruelling, and let me tell you it’s definitely not easy. I am now on day 3 and am still craving foods and am really missing my dinners after a long day at work. But I keep telling myself; Roz don’t quit!
And why did I start this detox? Well for starters, I am a curious creature and I wanted to test my will power to see if this would be something I could do – live of just 4x juices a day for five days. Thats me, the girl that loves her food! Also I’ve read so much about juice diets and it’s supposed to give your body a detox by cleansing you from the inside which should lead to more energy, boost your immune system, fewer digestive issues, make your skin glow and reduce your risk of illness and disease. For more details about the juice programme I am following click here.
Sounds pretty good right? Well I am trying, trying very hard to keep this up. They say the first 2 days are the hardest so let’s hope I am over the hump now. Have you ever tried a juice detox before?
Whatever you need this inspiration for today, remember why you started and don’t quit! Happy Hump Day :)
Hello everyone. It’s that time of the week again. The last week has flown by for me because it was very busy and filled with lots of family and birthday fun. I had an incredible weekend celebrating my 30th birthday with my parents and friends in London. I got super spoiled and I feel very blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life – I am seriously one lucky girl! On Saturday I hosted a BBQ at my house for a group of my close friends (some recipes of the yummy things I prepared to follow) and then afterwards I had a big party upstairs at The Elgin in Maida Vale which made for a brilliant venue! I will remember this great day forever and sadly I didn’t really take as many photos as I wanted to but that’s always the way when you’re having too much fun right? With regards to photos, I love this little poem by Erin Hanson (e.h) from thepoeticunderground.com. So true right? I am definitively a huge photography person and I love recording everything so you can always look back and remember them in more detail.
Here are some of the photos from my 30th birthday celebrations this weekend!
I got my aqua infinity dress on Etsy here! It’s amazing because you can wear it so many ways. I definitely want to get a maxi version of this dress too, because I think that it would be perfect for weddings. Anyway, it was a wonderful weekend but I am looking forward to a few days of peace and quiet now…..hey, don’t judge – I am old now after all ;) Happy Hump Day!
Hello it’s that time of the week again for some mid-week motivation. This week is flying by because I’ve been pretty busy with trying to get organised for the weekend coming up. Because on Saturday I will be celebrating my birthday, and not just any number. Nope it’s a biggie……30! With my birthday coming up felt this quote was rather appropriate haha.
“Breathe, my friend. You are not old, you are young. You are not a mess, you are normal. Extraordinary, perhaps. In the blink of an eye your life will change. And it will continue to change for decades to come. Enjoy it, embrace it… be grateful for the ride. You are not old, you are young. And faith will get you everywhere. Just you wait.” Abby Larson from StyleMePretty
Abby, (now in her 30s) said this, when asked by The Every Girl what she would tell her 23 year old self. And I think it counts for any age really. We need to enjoy the ride, embrace it and keep having faith in yourself! So I am going to keep reminding myself of this while I turn the big 3-0 this weekend. Especially of the I am not old but I am young part that is ;) Happy Hump Day everyone!
