Give a frock Friday

The floor-length silk-chiffon empire line frock designed by Marc Jacobs goes so well with the Martin Margiela graffiti trainers – you know how I love it when stylists pair couture with runners! This image is from “The Long Story” shot by Corinne Day for Vogue UK, June 2002 and was styled by the irrepressible Kate Phelan.

As we settle into the New Year with ease and grace, have you kept to your intentions or resolutions so far? I have committed to 30 Days of Yoga with Adriene to get me back in the swing of my practice. I didn’t really let go of my daily practice over the Christmas break, but I felt it was a good opportunity to encourage myself (and others I hope!) to focus on a daily session with someone else guiding me to keep me headed in the right direction… I am working on keeping my authentic self at the forefront and I believe that showing up on the mat every single day for 30 days will contribute to achieving this goal. I’ll keep you posted! 😉

From the Mat… rules are made to be broken, right?

Lately I’ve been asking myself, am I a bad yogi for not meditating every morning?
Right now life is a little hectic and it is all too easy for my meditation to be forgotten in the morning rush.
I give my night time meditation a lot of dedication, practicing different Pranayama exercises before going deep. It makes for a lovely sleep and pleasant dreams. Much of what I have read about meditation involves a few basic rules, from when and how you should be doing it, to making your own dedicated space for the actual doing. Which all sounds very nice, but there simply isn’t space in my house for that, so each night I grab my cushion, my candle and settle onto a floor rug in a quiet corner of the house.
So my theory is, that if I can’t always make it to my morning meditation, then that’s ok, because I don’t want to end up resenting what I’m doing because I’m not sticking to the “rules”.
I’m curious though, how do you fit meditation into your day?
