4 days to Christmas!

4 days to Christmas!
Category: lifestyle

Can't believe it's only 4 days before Christmas day! Christmas time has always been my favourite time of the year, although admittedly these days it's somewhat a teeny weeny less special than it used to be back when I was a kid. Not that I'm old now, mind you :) It's probably due to the fact that after 29 Christmases on planet earth, it's not that exclusive and memorable as the 1st, 2nd or 3rd time. Or that maybe we've surrounded ourselves with way too many

What's in my make up bag?

What's in my make up bag?
Category: lifestyle

I'm sure that there are a lot of you who are familiar with those "What's in my bag?" videos on you tube (if not, that's something you might be interested in so maybe check some out?). Since my hand bag now contains a new cosmetics bag which I got recently, I decided I'd just let you have a peek at the contents of my make-up bag. Bear in my mind that I carry out this with me everywhere daily, so it only contains the minimum of products :P

Chit-chat post following yesterday
Category: lifestyle

Morning people!! It's Thursday, meaning weekend is so close, meaning Dorianne is one happy bunny looking forward to some home-related errands on Saturday. Hubby and I have been meaning to start working on making our home more of a haven for quite some time now, and now that we've looked into some designs and home decor, we're just going to go ahead and START with our mini-project :D

Christmas Gift Guide for HER!

Christmas Gift Guide for HER!
Category: lifestyle

In less than a month it's Christmas time; mistletoe and wine...and pressies, for her!! :D 'HER' being your friend, girlfriend, wife and/or colleague who's always going on about how she's run out of hand cream or one who could do with a Ponsietta on her desk to brighten the otherwise dull office. So here are some items I picked up; see whether you love them as much as I do and maybe treat her to one of them; we all know how Christmas is a time for

EARN it or simply PAY for it?

EARN it or simply PAY for it?
Category: lifestyle

These past two weeks I've been so over the moon to witness and be part of some great shows and events (Moda Malta 2014, Coccinelle celebrating 1 year in MaltaPink Fashion Show) that my lifestyle posts were momentarily put on the back-burner. An incident which took place yesterday, however, was just the inspiration I needed

Fancy a cuddle?

Fancy a cuddle?
Category: lifestyle

This morning, whilst driving to work, hubby and I pulled over to stop and admire a huge rainbow which was reviving the otherwise dull grey sky. Rainbows have always played a funny part in our relationship; in the early days when we started going out we used to 'send' rainbows to each other via texts and emails to make each other feel better if one of us happened to be feeling a bit down. That is why my spirits are lifted each time I see a rainbow, that is

Stupid snobs

Stupid snobs
Category: lifestyle

I fastened my seat belt and mentally prepared myself for the upcoming 2 hour+ flight to Rome. The novel I had just bought from the bookshop at the airport was sitting on my lap and with my phone and headphones already at hand I was ultra keen to get the flight over and done with (yeah, flying makes me uncomfy!). But as soon as I was about to switch my phone to 'flight mode' and open my book, the voice of the lady behind me caught my attention.

And I'm back...well, sort of

And I'm back...well, sort of
Category: lifestyle

It's been almost three weeks since I last blogged - shame on you Dorianne! 

It's not that I didn't have anything to share (blabbing, ranting and sharing have never really been a weak point of mine) or that I didn't have time to write. In fact I could have blogged in the evenings whilst I was away for a workshop abroad or sometime during the weekend. But somehow I just didn't get to sit at my desk and type away.

'I'm smiling but I'm dying trying not to drag my feet'

'I'm smiling but I'm dying trying not to drag my feet'
Category: lifestyle

Yesterday I was going through some old journals and I came across this brief account I had written some years ago. I just thought I'd share...

 

"I’m starting to love driving to the beach at night and staying there for some 2 hours, on my own. I’m starting to enjoy staying there for hours again and it scares the shit out of me. I’m anxious again but once here everything feels perfect.

Achoo!

Achoo!
Category: lifestyle

I'm slightly sick...again! This summer has, in fact, heard me complain about this a number of times and it's always the same story. Each time it starts with a headache and/or sore throat and I pretend I'm not feeling any discomfort. Then, once the pain/discomfort increases I resort to in-house/natural remedies: I make myself some honey, I drink lots of water and warm beverages, I try to sniff a mixture of salted water... Most of the time, none of this works out

Live Happy. Try.

Category: lifestyle

Been through a couple of rough days but who doesn't every now and then? I'm doing better now, I'm smiling non-stop again and I don't feel that lonely anymore. Probably the talking-it-out bit was what made it feel better and easier; boy, my friends are so supportive - love them to bits! All it needed was a smile, a nod, a listening ear, a hug and as soon as I spoke out I got lots of those and everything just felt lighter. They made me feel braver, they made me

Quelqu'un M'a Dit

Quelqu'un M'a Dit
Category: lifestyle

I usually don't mind Mondays, but today's feels somewhat crappy. I wonder "Is it the weather? Is it the workload? Is it me? Is it the fact that I forgot to put sweets in my lunchbox this morning?" Mehhhhh....

 

So I close my eyes and find something to look forward to. It comes difficult, so I shut my eyes even harder and breathe in and out. I'm sure there's something grand out there

Summer Lovin' Tag Post. And you might be tagged ;)

Category: lifestyle

Last week I was tagged by classy Mariel in a Summer Lovin’ Tag Post and I was thrilled to say the least – I love these tag posts so much, I get so excited each time I’m tagged!! I only found time to answer during the weekend but as soon as I went through the tag post (which must have been Tuesday or Wednesday) I started forming the replies in my head. Yep, tag posts do that to me! :D

She is back!

She is back!
Category: lifestyle

I've been away from this space I've grown so fond of for too long, way longer than I would have liked/expected. Almost four weeks away from posting my thoughts and rants, sharing snaps of trends which I'd be either loving or which make me cringe, letting it all out. Yeah, blogging has become greatly significant to me, and I've missed it so much these past weeks. Yet, each time I start to feel guilty about this lengthy blogging break of mine, I try to remind

Cranky

Cranky
Category: lifestyle

You've probably realised that I've been having one heck of a week and these past three days, rather than posting the positive inspirational quotes I love surrounding myself with, I'm leaning towards one grumpy and cranky attitude :/
