Monday Motivation

So I just woke up on Sunday to the news that my fellow Kenyan Joyciline Jepkosgei had broken the half marathon record and 3 other records along the way! Meanwhile, I was just trying to motivate myself to make some lunch having had a lazy walk around a nature reserve!

Find of the week - Ana Bossa

I am in love with the creative detail in this Mont Blanc video Magic of Craft from Christmas last year. I googled around to find out that one of the artists behind it is Ana Bossa. I loved this video and I hope my fellow creatives will too!

Under the sea - Jewelry

Here is a fresh handmade selection for you and it is all inspired by nature and the sea!

 1. Mood board of the day - Under the sea

Well to start the selection, I have not your grandma's pearls! They are layered and linked uniquely to make something altogether more exquisite, from Toosis. The whale tail bracelet has been one of my absolute faves from , it is simple and understated, but so very chic. The last of the selection is strictly not speaking from under the sea but it reminds me of sea stones and is so beautifully crafted by

2. Thought of the day - People rarely change

This is a rare pearl of advice from my own mother. She said in general the personality that a person has at the age of 21 very rarely changes. This is about character rather than actions.

Character - For example if a person has a tendency to make snap decisions at 21, they will probably be doing the same at 31. If a person has a tendency to not put in their best effort at 21, they will probably be skating through life at 31.

Not character - If a person is drinking and partying hard at 21 (which is more of a societal behaviour), they may not necessarily do it at 31.

The key to not getting trapped at 21 is to be the adaptable person who is willing to listen to reason and most importantly be willing to change your mind when persuasive evidence is presented to you.
