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.
Came home to a lovely surprise specially done up by my hubby and my gal, really melts my heart. Isn’t it romantic? A trail of purple colored rose petals strewn on the floor leading to my present and a bouquet of my favourite flowers!
Later that night, I had another surprise! Wasn’t expecting anyone to come knocking at my door thats for sure and when I answered the door my Besties greeted me with a bouquet of sunflowers & a specially ordered Lychee Martini Cake – the cake is from Pine Garden’s Cake – simply yummilicious…hic!
Birthdays are incomplete without the ones who love & care for you. I am truly blessed having a loving family and friends for making my birthday so memorable…
Thanks for reading and letting me share my joy with you all!
