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.
We Chinese have an idiom – a girl changes eighteen times between childhood and womanhood and that is so true.
With a bat of an eye my sweetie is now 13 years old. She learnt doing make-up on her own, just by watching Youtube. She even knows how to use double eye-lid tape. Isn’t she smart? When I was her age I don’t even know how to do makeup!
She has developed a good fashion sense (since the Mummy also has a good fashion sense) and her own individual style.
She’s able to pull off different styles without losing her individuality.
Today is my 18th Wedding Anniversary, we went Marriott Cafe for a buffet lunch as a mini celebration.
18 years together is no mean fit we had our fair share of fights and arguments. We have been each other’s support as we weather through the storm. We made fond memories, shared good times together, we have a beautiful daughter and a place we call home. I have no regrets, because had I done it differently, I might not have them in my world, and that is not a world in which I would want to exist.
I love onesies! They make dressing up a breeze the only annoying problem is going to the bathroom but it’s definitely worth it – just give myself a few minutes headstart to do the jiggly dance and all is good 🙂
Thank you for reading! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
