TAKING STOCK #2 - New Year Edition

03 January 2015

Making : New Years Resolutions list (day 3 into the New Year, whatevs)

Cooking : nothing because I've been cooking over the holidays and this weekend is my much awaited kitchen break. I am not sure how is that going to be possible though with the ze Toddler but it's free to dream isn't it?

Drinking : A strong Cappuccino

Reading: The Woman who Stole my Life by Marian Keyes. This author is really funny. I can't stop laughing because I hear myself in the all the one-liners she wrote in this book.

Wanting: Another baby. OK, I've said it.

Looking: forward to another holiday. I am not sure when but I am already looking forward to it.

Playing: as a "Minimalist" in my wardrobe organisation project. I'm culling all the skinny clothes and all the pre-mummy dresses because let's face it, deep-V dresses are not for my boobies anymore. My girls lost the plot. They've succumbed to gravity.

Wasting: time worrying about nothing (as always)

Sewing: nothing because my other sewing project failed due to time management. I will get there.

Wishing: for happiness and peace between my extended families.

Enjoying: Co-sleeping so much even though I get kicked, slapped and headbutted. ze Toddler is growing so fast and soon he won't like my cuddles and kisses but for now I take what I can get.

Waiting: patiently for a miracle.

Liking: the idea of shopping for a new purse. I found what I like but I couldn't fork out that price tag so I am looking for another designer/brand. Wish me luck!

Wondering: If I'll finish T25 this time around. I should finish T25 this time around. No more excuses.

Loving: the family time we're having right now.

Hoping: for baby. There I've said it again.

Marvelling: at how ze Toddler speaks words now and putting phrases together. He's so clever but then again I am his mum.

Needing: a brow makeover so bad.

Smelling: Chloe perfume

Wearing: PJs

Following: the blogsteps of my favourite bloggers - be funny and entertaining (I try though).

Noticing: new freckles on my cheeks. Age or sun spots - I hate it. I am no Lucy Liu after all.

Knowing: I have my family and friends makes me feel very lucky.

Thinking: of how to make our back garden look more cozy and pretty. I want a food tray as a centrepiece but I want it glossy white. Is that hard to find? It is.

Feeling: sad. Sad about my dad.

Bookmarking: a lot of cupcake recipes so when I finally get my standalone mixer I will create all these cupcakes.

Opening: old photo albums and seeing my parents and how happy they were together makes me smile.

Giggling: at my current obsession of smelling my underarm first thing in the morning.

Feeling: hopeful that 2015 will bring more blessings, happiness, money and maybe a baby or babies if we're that lucky.

Other things in my resolutions list (related to my blog):

1. Buy less crap and more key pieces when it comes to clothes.

2. Drink more water and try lemon water in room temperature instead of ice-cold. I can do this.

3. Strictly apply eye cream every day and night.

4. Find a good skin care routine and stick to it for a year.

5. Blog regularly and maybe enrol in some creative writing courses to improve my writing skills.

Once again, I hope you had a lovely time during the holidays and may all your resolutions be fulfilled this year!

Much love to all xx
