We often sacrifice self-care because we are too busy trying to save everyone else. Sometimes we just need to be selfish and love ourselves more. For when we care and love ourselves, we are better able to care for and love others.
To feel better about yourself, learn a new skill. There’s reason to believe that engaging in a project can put you in a meditation state. Finishing the project, or mastering a mini skill, boosts one’s confidence.
I did just that – took the day off and attended a X’mas Wreath Workshop hosted by A Sassy Florist with a girlfriend.
Mia, owner of A Sassy Florist and mummy to Apple Juice (that’s the adorable shiba who loves belly rubs and head massages). This is her first time hosting wreath making workshops and it has been a sold out success. I was glad we manage to get a spot. Mia makes beautiful hand bouquets/arrangements – Omakase style or some would say avant-garde.
Mia makes wreath making look so easy but it’s not it took us two hours to make a wreath. Mia was very good at teaching us the basics, encouraging us to let our creativity run its course. She was very patient with us, guiding and helping us along the way.
I’m in love with my final wreath – it looks professionally done and very expensive – full to the brim with foliage (pine, fir, spruce, eucalyptus) and elements (deco of acorn, cotton, cinnamon).
We both had loads of fun making our X’mas wreath and playing with Apple Juice! A wonderful experience that I would highly recommend.
Birthdays gives us the opportunities to stop and appreciate all the beautiful things we have been blessed with. I believe every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start a new!
For starters I changed my hairstyle from a bob to pixie (yes I hesitated a while before taking this ‘huge’ step to cut it all off).
RxR Magazine made me realise I have the power to really influence and help ladies on a more personal basis through image consultancy.I have a vision of making ‘shenwendys.wordpress.com’ a brand name for image for any women, any age at any stage of their lives. Being a mummy myself I too fell into a mundane rut before becoming who I am today. I want to inspire the mummies out there, guide them back into society remind them its important to look and feel good about yourself and they shouldn’t neglect themselves after having kids. RxR Magazine will continue, its just that ‘shenwendys.wordpress.com’ is my channel to connect more personally with my readers.
