Things I've enjoyed this week and what it is to be beautiful

Hiya :)

Here's a little round up of things I've enjoyed on the net, since that's where I spend a lot of my time!

A post I enjoyed on the web yesterday was this one by The London Lipgloss, which is about the OPI Vintage Minnie Mouse collection, which is a set of gorgeous pink and red polishes, including a polish with pink foil heart shapes in it. Oh, just go look. So cute! A couple of those polishes will go on my never-ending wish list.
Last, but not least - another thing I've been enjoying a huge amount is Vashti Whitfield's blog. If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll know the death of actor Andy Whitfield (star of Spartacus: Blood and Sand) hit me hard, as he was so talented and had a whole life ahead of him. Vashti is Andy's inspiring, open and beautiful wife. I sat and read all of her blog entries in one morning recently, and while doing so I realised what it means to be beautiful.

To me, being a beautiful woman is simply putting in more than you take out of life.

Vashti is definitely one of those people, and she has inspired me to want to give more than I take. She shares her experiences, her Instagram feed, and parts of her life with her two children. Although she's been through an experience most of us dread above all else - the loss of our life partner - she is incredibly positive and I find reading her blog an immensely emotional experience. There are both sad and happy tears from me as I read her words. When you are beautiful on the inside like Vashti, it really does radiate out.

Here is one of Vashti's pearls of wisdom:

Focus on what you want and not what you are afraid of and the rest will follow.


If you find yourself having a crap day, week, month, life…it may be time to shift your focus and put some thought into how you want your life or even the next hour to take shape. It can take a bit of effort fighting the inner voice, the one that says it is too hard, or that it won’t work, or that it is somebody else’s fault etc…but if you just start by spending 5 minutes focusing on what you want, writing it down and actually committing to relentlessly making it happen, the obvious actions will then follow and those good old laws of attraction will start working their magic!

And this I've just seen on Vashti's Twitter:

If you never put it out there or ask for what you want, how will it know where to find you?

Vashti is a real inspiration to me. I hope she knows how special she is.

Who inspires you, and why? Feel free to leave your favourite quote.
