A Woman Should…

Came across this on Facebook and had to share. Feeling the #girlpower #girlboss vibes today!! 

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….
Enough money within her control to move out…
And rent a place of her own
even if she never wants to
or needs to… 
Something perfect to wear if the employer
or date of her dreams wants to See Her in an hour… 

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …
A youth she’s content to leave behind….
A past juicy enough that she’s looking forward to
retelling it in her Old Age….

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE .
A set of screwdrivers,
a cordless drill, and a black lace bra…
One friend who always makes her laugh…
And one Who lets her cry…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….
A good piece of furniture not previously owned
by anyone else in her Family…
Eight matching plates,
wine glasses with stems,
And a recipe for a meal that will make
her guests feel Honored…
A feeling of control over her destiny…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
How to fall in love without losing herself..
HOW TO QUIT A JOB,
BREAK UP WITH A LOVER,
AND CONFRONT A FRIEND WITHOUT
RUINING THE FRIENDSHIP…
When to try harder…
And WHEN TO WALK AWAY…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
That she can’t change the length of her calves,
The width of her hips,
or the nature of her parents..
That her childhood may not have been perfect…
But it’s over…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
What she would and wouldn’t do for love or more…
How to live alone…
Even if she doesn’t like it…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
Whom she can trust,
Whom she can’t,
And why she shouldn’t take it personally…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
Where to go…
Be it to her best friend’s kitchen table…
Or a charming inn in the woods…
When her soul needs soothing…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
What she can and can’t accomplish in a day…
A month…
And a year…

A non-dancer who loves dance

To start this post off, here is a little background. I have always loved music, the theatre, dancing… the lot! But I am literally awful at every single one. Now, if you are going to say surely not you have just not found the song or dance… yes I have. I am awful. But I’m completely fine with that, I’ve embraced it!

What I am good at being –  is being the audience.

No one will cheer louder for you, appreciate the hours behind the scenes and after when your at home icing your knees or dipping into a hot bath to help the muscle pain, not a soul will cry and laugh as loud as I do when you perform. Watching people dance and preform transforms me. It controls my emotions, transforming me to a different place, leaving me breathless and has left me walking out a building feeling like I have been in a wonderful, dream.

This post stems from one of my jobs. I work in a dance school (obviously not teaching!!). I get to see the teachers, the students and even us little admin people daily. I see all the work we put in together as a team is next to no other. The strength, the stress and the days were we are all on the floor laughing. I love my job so much because I get to be apart of the dance world with two left feet. And the dancers embrace me! They love when I come to class because I try my hardest and they love my effort. This is what dance is all about for me. Embracing each other and transforming the viewer to a different destination before the lights go down.

Over the weekend I have been very busy working, and half my time was dedicated to the School I work in, which was holding our end of term 10th year anniversary dance recitals. The team preformed and held 10 shows over the weekend with over 300 students. I am literally still giddy from it. You would think I teach the students myself I get so proud and emotional! I cannot put into words how proud I am of the team and students. I am so lucky to be surrounded by so much creativity.

To all the performers, dancers out there – thank you. To all the audiences – keep cheering!!

Chia seed loving 

Currently stuck behind a desk planning a dance recital for work and I have this with me as one of my snacks! Water with chia seeds added to it. I’m loving it! Added protein and I don’t know if it’s a mind over matter thing but I don’t have cravings as much as I usually do at this time! Winning! 👌🏽💦



Garden time

I don’t start work until this afternoon so I’m currently sitting in my back garden, with my dogs, my newest book I have just started and a huge green smoothie as I feel a summer cold coming on and a normal size smoothie wasn’t going to cut it!

My smoothie contains a huge amount of spinach, 2 bananas, some strawberries with water and protein worlds vanilla slender blend protein powder. Tastes delicious. 

I’m on chapter 3 of my book, Dark Places by Gillian Flynn and I think it’s going to be a goodie! 


That’s my dog Clyde making an appearance also 🐶 
Happy Wednesday! 

Smoothie prep…

So I have been thinking about doing something similar like this for a while to reduce food wastage, then the other day I seen this on Facebook and decided I was going to do it!

Prepping your smoothie contents and freezing it. When you want to use it you can just add a liquid or yoghurt for example and you should be good to go!

After an Aqua Fit class tonight, my friend and I went to asda to stalk up on some healthy goodies before coming home and getting to work.

The above is some of the items I put in my freezer bags. Not every bag got all items which I like as it give a little variety but the base of each bag was the kale, spinach, chia seeds and crushed almonds. The yoghurt didn’t go in any bags but I will be using it tomorrow morning for my smoothie. I also decided to open a tin of pineapple (I drained the syrup and rinsed with water, not the healthiest option I know!).

  

Overhead are some of my finished products and a view of how messy I am when it comes to these things!! I’m excited to see if it works well, I’ve left one out tonight for tomorrow but Wednesday will be the first time I try it out from frozen. I would love to hear if anyone’s tried this and what their verdict/tips are on it!

For now, it’s bed time. Goodnight!
