It’s been a hot minute

Okay, so it’s been a while since I’ve written anything.

And with good reason!

I’ve been busy! While running my business I moved house, fell into a pit of anxiety and depression, got out of the pit, made new friends, started looking after my physical health and did a WHOLE LOTTA knitting throughout.

Wait…what?

The house move was a little bit stressful. I thought I was doing a good job of holding it together but I fell apart.

It took a toll on me but it opened me up to look at what I needed to work on: self respect and self worth.

You know, small things to work on…😬

Fast forward to today and I’m feeling good. There are still some anxious days but much better than before.

Baby steps but I’m on my way.

I’ve met some amazing people this year and involved in some great events as a stall holder for Ratts, Tatts n’ Pinups organized by Kingpin Kuztums. Our last event for the year will be on New Years Eve. Details here

I finally looked after an old knee injury which involved a bit of rehabilitation with a physiotherapist.

Which led to another, older injury in my foot being tended to.

Things are much better after much intensive treatment. I also discovered I do not like acupuncture. It’s not the needles but the sensation in the muscles once the needles are removed that I dislike!

I’ve recently started training at a boxing gym. It’s been 15 years since I last trained with weights and boxing. My god have I missed it!! I’ve missed endorphins!! Endorphins are so good!! Wheeeeeeeeeee!!

I have eased into it because of the previous injuries but I feel like I’m at home when I’m pumping iron or punching a heavy bag! 💪🏼

Leg day? The 3 days after my first session I was wrecked. Couldn’t move without wincing 😖 y’all know what I mean!

I’ve picked up a knitting job! I’m a professional knitter now! So when I’m not working my business, I’m getting paid to knit! I’ve also worked on a number of commissions, a gift, and my never ending shawl in between because I don’t stop!

So what about my business here?

2 years in and I still love what I do. Wouldn’t change it for anything.

Helping women bring out their best self? Such an amazing feeling.

I want to thank all my supporters this year, you help me carry on and keep the passion alive.

I wish everyone the best for Christmas and may 2020 be your best year yet!

The real thing

*stretches hands*

I’ve been knocking out knitting projects left and right between coffees. And I drink a lot of coffee!

My in-laws are the recipients of these squishy socks.

Back to my first sweater for myself before I knock out another present.

🎶 Regrets, I’ve had a few

But then again, too few to mention🎶

Well this one is about how I didn’t take a before pic of my eyelashes before starting the LashSense VolumeIntense mascara. FOOL! 🤦🏻‍♀️

If you didn’t already know, this mascara is the real deal:

▪️Waterproof

▪️Tear proof

▪️Sweat proof

▪️Transfer proof

▪️Thickens lashes

▪️Lengthens lashes

No panda eyes here (no offense to pandas 🐼).

And the non waterproof mascara is humidity resistant 😅

Oh! and throw away your lash curler! Because this product curls your lashes for you 😱😱😱

Though best of all is that your lashes will grow 46% in 4 weeks…wait…what?!

Yes. And I can absolutely attest to that. The ingredients in the mascara will grow your lashes.

Hands down this is the best mascara I have ever used. And I’ve used other high end mascaras with bold claims without naming names 😳

And this is why I’ll never forget to take a before pic ever again.
