The Sunday R&R

Happy Sunday!  How are you this lovely day?  It is a wonderful Sunday and after some late nights this week, it is a day out of the office today to a lakeside walk.

The extra work you will start to see over the coming days and weeks with some tune ups being made to the blog, or as I like to think of it, that the blog has been to the Spa has come out all refreshed.   One of the changes you will have noticed is the navigation at the top, as you can now access all of your favourite categories from the drop down menus, rather than a separate category menu.   It means that you can access your fav topics on the blog more easily.

Keep your eyes peels on more nips and tucks that we will be rolling out shortly.

As part of my own personal development and getting in touch with what energizes me, I have come to realise that being by the sea or lakes, near water in general is something that restores my energy.   It is also one of my favourite places for 1-2-1 intensive coaching sessions, and I will have some news on an upcoming opportunity for this soon.

But for now I will leave you with The Sunday R&R……

Favorite Etsy Finds

We are focusing on rustic inspired weddings in this weeks Favourite Etsy finds.  I love classic romance and elegance, but I also love rustic styling, natural fabrics and textures always really excite me.

The first find is burlap plant wraps which would be fabulous tied around herbs and wild flowers.  Why not source these before you head to France, and then visit the local flower market to collect some local plants to act as your table setting – SHOP HERE>>
