I’ve posted this quote to help you kick those Monday morning blues.

It makes a significant difference when you can start your work week off with the right attitude in mind.

Watch out world, here we come:-)



Advertisements Incomplete

I have been running so sweaty my whole life
Urgent for a finish line
And I have been missing the rapture this whole time of being forever incomplete
Ever unfolding
Ever expanding
Ever adventurous
And torturous
And never done
– Alanis Morisette (lyrics from her song, Incomplete)


I’ve been kicking it old school lately by busting out some old CD’s.  I came across Alanis Morisette’s 2008 album “Flavors of Entanglement”.  I can remember buying this album just before a past boyfriend and I parted ways and this album helped me gain empowerment and strength during that time.  Alanis’ whole album goes through the journey of moving on from a relationship (I believe the album was written about her break up from Ryan Reynolds).

The songs are raw and real – she sings about plenty of heavy negative stuff as well as finding your feet again and new-found happiness.

The final song on the album is called “Incomplete” and it’s full of insightful and optimistic messages. 

You may be getting over a breakup, frustrated at not getting that job promotion you deserved, or in just some sort of rut, and hopefully this song can remind you to look at the bigger picture of the issue at hand.

I’ve found a beautiful acoustic version of Alanis performing it…

There are other ways for a lady to show a hint of sexiness and seductiveness with her outfit other than busting out the twins in a low cut dress and & push up bra or exposing the midriff (for me, its just showing off my food belly hehe).

BABY GOT BACK – and I don’t mean your derriére like Sir Mix A Lot is referring to.  Showing off a bit of back is so underrated.  The right backless top or dress could show off those sexy traps that you’ve been working so hard on in Pilates.

A sheer back blouse or a deep drop back dress can really go a long way in tastefully displaying a woman’s beautiful figure.

Here are some of my favourite examples below…

So next time you want to add some spice to your outfit for date night, try to go for the backless loveliness look.

I came across this quote today and thought I’d share it with you all.  True wise words that we should all use to self-evaluate from time to time.

If you are struggling with something from the past, a couple thoughts to add to this are listen to your heart, as it will tell you what the right path is.  Once you take those first steps remember that you can go at your own pace… stroll, walk, jog or run, as long as you are moving forward you will get to where you want to be.
