This time of year is definitely soul cleansing for me, a simple walk around a dewdrop covered suburb with the sunlight dancing through the auburn leaves just forces me to take a deep breath and be thankful for everything i have around me. It also makes me want to jump in puddles, pull out my vintage blouses and dust off the gloves too! Absolute bliss.
I have been in full swing prepping for my workshop this Sunday, if you have haven’t had the chance to book yourself in i still have a few spots with your name written all over it. Follow THIS link to book! We will be mastering the art of pin curling, french rolls and even delving into 40’s style Queue curls too!
I have a full night of lindy hop planned as well as copius amounts of hot chocolate and a charleston dance peformance tomorrow! Its going to be a big weekend!
A small snippet of what life has been like lately (through my iphone lens)…filled with small adventures around my city in the small amount of time i have had free from dancing, eating Macarons like a fiend & if you havent discovered Cronuts yet…get on to it! Imagine a Doughnut and a Croissant having a baby (your welcome) and catching up on a bit of reading! I feel like i am managing the work/play/rest ratio pretty well lately, when i feel like i dont have any spare time to cram anything in..then bam..i have a random afternoon free to loiter around my apartment in warm socks reading my novels! I think thats all i could ever ask for in life really…a good balance of things that inspire me and keep me happy injected with moments of adult things like work and paying bills! Xx
