The always fabulous Kate Moss in this gorgeous Gucci pleated silk frock. Photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for Harper’s Bazaar December 1999. She’s rockin’ that beret too by the way. Love it.
As healthy as I am trying to be lately, there is still something that is almost impossible to avoid during the winter months and that is the bloody head cold. I woke up at 1 am this morning with a horrid sore throat, snuffly nose, my head was pounding, you know the drill. My throat started feeling scratchy yesterday afternoon so I dosed myself up on Olive Leaf Extract, vitamin C and I’ve been drinking copious cups of hot lemon, ginger and Manuka honey tea. So far this morning my throat is feeling much better and my sniffles have dried up. I still feel headachy and there is a general feeling of malaise, but all in all I am hoping that if I keep up my arsenal of potions, I may just kick this thing! Part of my recovery plan is to also to spend the day snuggled on the couch with my girls watching Clueless and French Kiss together. It is raining outside after all.
Here’s to a better weekend for all!

Katy Perry looking a little like Jane Russell in that famous shot of her from the 1943 Howard Hughes western classic, The Outlaw. Katy’s red duchess-satin strapless frock is by Zac Posen, worn over a cream Blumarine dress with lace detail. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz for American Vogue July 2013 issue. Make up by Gucci Westman for Revlon, hair by Didier Malige and the fashion editor for this shoot was Tonne Goodman.
Happy Winter Solstice my fellow Southern Hemisphere dwellers!

Frock Friday is back!
Drew Barrymore is divine in this fabulous floral frock by Gucci, photographed by Mario Testino for Vogue US February 2006. I can’t help but think of Drew’s character Little Edie Beale in HBO’s 2006 movie Grey Gardens.
Wishing you all a fantastic weekend 🙂
Jason Schwartzman and Kirsten Dunst on set during the filming of Sofia Coppola’s 2006 film Marie Anoinette. Love this movie. Love these two actors. Love this picture.
Kismet (noun) meaning fate or predetermined, unavoidable destiny.
Have you ever been struck with a knowing that you were in the right place at the right time and that suddenly you knew the answer to something?
This is how I felt the moment I knew that my future path was to empower and educate through yoga and meditation.
You know those people that always knew what they wanted to be when they grew up and they went on to become a doctor, astrophysicist, school teacher, etc and it was everything they thought it was going to be, and they are successful and love their career? Do you know those people? (Frankly, does anyone know anyone that lucky?)
I have never had a job that I’ve loved. Sure I’ve had warm feelings about an occupation that made me think I was in the perfect job for me. Everybody’s had those feelings. I spent most of my 20s and 30s searching high and low for that elusive career, the one I thought I had missed out on by not actively following a designated career path. I fell into depression and discovered yoga and spirituality along the way, so not a total waste of time then right 😉
The funny thing is I have a perplexing need to excel at my work. I will work my ass off to make sure that I am the best at it. I have no idea why I do this, especially considering that I hated most, if not all of my jobs.
So, my question is this. When I do finally become a qualified yoga teacher, will I love it? And more importantly, will I love it enough to kick my own ass in order to be the best at it every single day? I have a feeling that it’s not going to matter. But I wanted to put it out there into the cosmos anyway.
