NON VALENTINE, best-bathtub-fashion-editorials-2017_top-bloggers-who-quit-instagram-2017_top-fashion-bloggers-australia-2017_melbourne's-best-fashion-lifestyle-bloggers-2017_top-natural-hair-bloggers_melbourne-australia-2017-3 THE NON VALENTINE ISSUE


The non Valentine issue? Please explain. Guys, no! I don’t hate Valentine or love! OK, let me just get that out there before the Valentine army comes for me with some thorny rose bushes. The thing is I love LOVE so much I don’t think it should be confined to just one day of the year. That being said, I do celebrate Valentine’s day. Sometimes. Just so I can justify eating an abnormal load of chocolate. Mmhhh. Now, don’t you sit there and pretend you don’t know what I am talking about! So yes, I could have gone for something red and Valentine’y for the blog cover this month. Well, now you know why I didn’t.

The real reason though is… I know everyone kind’a tries to sort out their lives earlier on in January with New Years resolutions, etc. I kind of used January to slowly sift things out of my life that I do not feel are adding value or serving me in any way positive. Yes, I have had to make some pretty drastic cuts (sorry, not sorry) in areas you’ll discover as time goes on. I have just gotten to the point where I felt like I had no time to do some other things I really wanted to do. So if it didn’t grow me or add value to my life in any way, it had to go. Simples. Time is precious y’all, and sometimes a girl just has to be brutal to get her power and focus back. Hence why I named this The Spring Cleaning Issue. I know it is not Spring in the UK (or Australia), so my apologies for any confusion. Here’s to a new season where we get back to giving 100% attention to our passions and doing away with life’s un-necessaries.

“I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.” Psalm 32:8
