Yellow with Hues of Blue

"When you find someone loyal....hold on to them because such people are hard to find."
















Hi dolls and gents, hope you are having a blessed week... I know I have been M.I.A, I have been so busy settling into my new job. I cant lie. London has been so grey and cold, I was hit with the flu and been feeling so bugged down and run down for the past two weeks. But am getting better, I spent today in a steam room and sauna just in an attempt to open up my airway and also my skin pores. I have been so stressed so it was good stress relief. I have also been doing a lot of  boxing sessions after work. I bought these cute pink boxing gloves and trust me boxing is my new favorite thing to do. Its fun!

Anyway enough of the stories, lets talk about this outfit huntayyys! So Leona Lewis always seems to have these BOMB dot COM pencil skirt and small crop top combinations. And one thing she always does is throw in a pop of colour. I love the mix of blue and yellow....like who would have ever thought those two colours would look smashing together. By the way I have new hair! I have mixed feelings about the ombre effect at the bottom, I may get my hair done in all black , what you think>>>

THE RAT RACE-





I just finished reading "Rich Dad poor dad" by Robert Kiyosaki and it really had me thinking of the cycle of my life. The book is the story of the  author who has two fathers: the first was his biological father – the poor dad - and the other was the father of his childhood best friend, Mike – the rich dad. Both fathers taught the author how to achieve success but with very disparate approaches. 
The author compares his poor dad to those people who are perpetually scampering in the Rat Race, helplessly trapped in a vicious cycle of needing more but never able to satisfy their dreams for wealth because of one glaring lack: financial literacy. They spend so much time in school learning about the problems of the world, but have not acquired any valuable lessons about money, simply because it is never taught in school. His rich dad, by contrast, represents the independently wealthy core of society who deliberately takes advantage of the power of corporations and their personal knowledge of tax and accounting (or that of their financial advisers) which they manipulate to their advantage.
The phrase "Rat race" kept popping up and I thought to myself what exactly is the rat race...  Curious as to its origins, I did a quick Google search, and low and behold, “Rat Race” has its own Wikipedia page. I found this definition, “A rat race is an endless, self-defeating, or pointless pursuit. It conjures up the image of the futile efforts of a lab rat trying to escape while running around a maze or in a wheel. In an analogy to the modern city, many rats in a single maze expend a lot of effort running around, but ultimately achieve nothing (meaningful) either collectively or individually.  Here are five ideas about making sure you run in a different race, one worth running.
1. Don’t be a rat, be a person – We become rats by choice.  Society, friends, and even loved ones, can all unwittingly encourage us to enter the wrong race.  You don’t have to do it.  Enter the race you’re designed to run, not one that will fail to bring out the best in you and won’t satisfy your soul, even if you come in first.  As Lilly Tomlin has said, “The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you’re still a rat.”

2. Forget the cheese, go for significance – What strikes me as most important about this Wikipedia definition is the phrase “achieve nothing meaningful.”  It’s generally not the amount of effort we expend or the pace at which we run that causes us to feel that we’re wasting our life, it’s a lack of connection to a higher purpose.  Rats will work pretty hard for a piece of cheese.  Maybe a piece of cheese will satisfy a rat, but as a human being we need more to find a meaningful life.  Paychecks, accolades, awards, or the recognition of others are nice, but won’t satisfy the soul.  To find significance we must play a bigger game and run the race that God has for us.  Learn to surrender to your calling and you can go for the gold of meaning and purpose.  Forget running through the maze-of-life for cheesy rewards that really don’t matter very much.

3. Slow down in order to win the race – Turn the hamster wheel faster than anyone else and all you’ll do is turn the hamster wheel faster than anyone else.  So what?  Regardless of the race you choose to enter, getting too busy to enjoy the journey, or to ask, “what is this teaching me?” ensures that you’ll not win the race called a “joyful life journey.”

4. To win, help others win – If a satisfied soul and a joyful life is the prize that you’re after, you’ll never get it by beating others to the end of the maze.  The good race, the race that brings meaning and fulfillment to our lives isn’t a contest against others.  It’s a contest for others.  Only by using your gifts and talents in the service of others can you win a life that brings lasting fulfillment.

5. Lead others to a higher purpose – We’re all leaders in some way: with our children, our neighbors, at work, or self-leadership.  When you lead, call those you lead to a higher purpose and you’ll bring out the best in yourself and others.  Treat them like rats and they’ll act like rats.  People are much more than simple stimulus/response creatures who can be taught to solve the maze if they get a little reward at the end.  This approach may work for a while, but the rewards won’t keep them happy for long and you’ll not just be in a rat race yourself, you’ll be the head rat.  Lead with higher purpose in mind and watch the difference it makes.


DO NOT BE A RAT .........BE A PERSON!!!

THANKS FOR READING DOLLS AND GENTS...

HANDMADE ZARA CAMEL COAT ..Baby Am So Cold.


You can spend minutes, hours ,days,weeks,months or even years  over analyzing a situation,trying to put the pieces back together, wondering what could have been,justifying what could have happened..or you can just leave those pieces on the floor and move on. Dont look back at what you have lost, move on because life is not meant to be traveled backwards.

Hi dolls and gents! So its been freezing outside and these days I dress weather appropriate, I have no time to be getting ill etc. Its good to have a good winter coat that you can wear to keep warm. I have a couple coats but they are either black or the color you see in this post (Camel) because those two colors go with anything and everything. This coat has been my go to coat, not everyone's favourite but it sort of  reminds  me of  the 'morning gown'  I wear when I hop out of the shower or when am chilling in my room at night haha! Its just a classy way to have an excuse to wear a bath robe looking gown in outside everyday life. Its Bomb dot com, comfortable, it has a nice feel to it. I would say its a MUST HAVE! Unfortunately it seems to be sold out from Zara but I have put some links to some similar looking ones that you can get.

Thanks for tuning in dolls and gents.
