Another Quote & Thoughts on Happiness

In searching for a topic to post about today I came across this quote and thought that we should all live by this!

It's so true. It's about being brave and taking that step even if you don't know what's next or if it will work out. But to me, that's better than staying still, living in fear, wondering what if and ultimately being unhappy.

Your wilderness may be the bush, the big city or just another suburb. But reaching out and just taking hold of your possible future is really the only option.

For me I would rather take a risk and end up poor but happy than life a stagnant, boring, safe life and end up with money but be so unhappy that I can't ever enjoy it.

Some things in life don't have a 'right' answer or a safe option if your happiness is being compromised. Sometimes life puts obstacles or new adventures in your path and you have no choice. So why not embrace the new and unknown and just go for it? Yes, at times you need to have some form of sense …

A busy month has seen me having lots of wonderful big and small adventures. A thought a little recap would hopefully explain my rather spasmodic posting of late!

It's been a busy few weeks! Bring on summer holidays and a few weeks off.


Today's Quote

Saw this quote today and it just summed up how I feel. Hope everyone is off having awesome adventures like I have.

Matching Shoes with your outfit

I have a thing for collecting images of things that catch my eye especially int eh fashion world. I thought it would be fun to match up some of my favourite current looks with some shoes I am loving. (please note that any fashion mistakes are my own)

A pop of neon with 
An over the top ruffle
Review - Elegance with
Louboutin magic

Girly flare teamed with
A pop of sparkles from Milk & Honey Shoes
Review - Understated blue with
Luscious stripes from Milk & Honey Shoes

What do you think? Do I pass fashion school for this week? Would you wear any of these combinations?

Wise words

Saw this on Facebook recently and had to share.
