Fear is still (and will always, always be) a liar.

Fear is so silly don’t you think? Well I mean, when we’re affected by it’s sneaky discouragement, illusive intimidation and overwhelming anxiety, okay let’s be honest it feels more ‘in-your-face-dangerous‘ than ‘silly’; but that moment we realise just how pathetic and obviously … Continue reading

Take a Risk.

Welcome to Monday my friends! I wonder what excitement awaits us this week? Awaiting me at the end of this week is a big aeroplane that I will be jumping onto and flying across the other side of the world to see my beautiful friend Miriam get married! 🙂 It’s very exciting. So three of my friends and I are jet-setting across to the UK to stand next to her on her special day (wearing very pretty dresses of course!) We haven’t seen her for two and a half years, so I am picturing our airport reunion to be an ‘extra-squeally-scream-and-hug-fest’… just like a scene out of Love Actually!

So, I’ve been thinking about the second half of this year and what it’s going to hold, and for me personally I’m not quite sure, but I really sense a great expectation for something amazing. What about you? What are you expecting? Something new and fun maybe? What could that new thing be for you? Maybe you’ll step out… Maybe you’ll discover a treasure… Maybe you’ll get a new idea… Maybe you’ll travel… Whatever it is, when was the last time you followed your heart and took a risk? 

So don’t hold back. 

Because YOU, my friend, can do ALL things through him who strengthens you!

I love this. So if you are realizing you need to go out on that limb today, just remember I am cheering you on and I think you are incredible! Go you!

Love Nat xoxo

Friday Fashionista :: { The Statement Jacket }

It’s the quickest way in the history of the world (in my opinion) to dress up jeans and a plain tee… It’s bright and fun and comes in all sorts of colours… And its cropped shape looks just fab over pretty much anything. So basically, (and I’m sure you’ll agree) they should really be considered an “essential item” he he. Anyway, scroll away my friend and enjoy this array of colourful delight! Love Nat xoxo Continue reading

Six little encouragements for you.

Okayyyyy call me crazzzy, but the fact that we are only four months away from summer is just a tad exciting for me! << insert crazy tongue poking out emoticon here >> Alright alright, I know I am jumping the gun a bit here, but think about it… June 21 was four days ago… That’s the shortest day of the year… So guess what that means? Yep that’s right. The days get longer and warmer from here on in. Hello. Woo hoo! 

And just like summer is coming, so are our promises. Yep. Your promises and mine. God promises that “we are the receivers of great and precious promises“, so just as we get excited and know summer is coming, we can rest assured that our great God has everything perfectly planned. He’s working behind the scenes in our situation right now. Just look at the sun in the sky. Every time it sets it’s a confirmation of his goodness. 

So here are six little things to encourage you in whatever season you are in:

1. Write five things you are thankful for today.

Thankfulness shifts atmospheres and gives us new eyes to see.

2. Joyfully look forward to the season ahead.

Expectation releases the miraculous.

3. Don’t be distracted or discouraged in the wait. 

Focus is the key. And God is always really great at helping us with this.

4. Sow seeds for the next season. 

Whether it’s finance, time, acts of service, or love… your seed releases your breakthrough.

5. Expect surprises everyday.

Let’s learn from kids. They are always expecting fun and wonder. 

6. Don’t wait for summer to come to dance… dance in the rain!!

That’s right! It’s time to seize the moment. Carpe diem!

So have a beautiful day my friends. Be encouraged, wherever you go you have the ability to release love and joy, so let’s be extravagant with our giving.

Happy Wednesday 🙂

Love Nat xox

So how many pairs do you have? Flat, high heeled, low heeled, tan, black, coloured, buckled, laced, elasticized… the list goes on. Is it just me or in the past few years has the ankle boot become one of THE most fabulous parts of the wardrobe? Honestly! I don’t know what I did before them? What the heck did I wear every day in winter? Anyway, I’m glad they are here now… and as we are heading into some cooler weather, let’s have a little lookie at some fun ways we can style them. (And even for some of us who miiiiight just be heading to some warmer weather, good news, they work just as well with skirts and shorts!) Happy browsing guys and gals! X Continue reading
