Day 1 of 2015

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful evening last and relaxing day today. I spent the morning reading in bed while it was raining, and as soon as the sun came out I quickly put my bikini on and spent the afternoon tanning and swimming. Today was a wonderful start to my 2015!

There have been quite a few pics posted online that do a good job of summing up how everyone’s feeling about 2014 and 2015. So much has changed since this time last year and even though I wasn’t always sure why things played out the way they did, I am grateful to be alive, healthy, breathing, and stronger than before.

These are some of the posts that I really liked:

I love inspirational quotes, and often sit for ages going through the ones on Pinterest. These ones really inspired me for this brand-new year:

As for resolutions, I never stick to them for the full year. So for 2015, my aim is to continue to improve my fitness, eat clean, and make more time to do the things I love.

Wishing you all of the best for the year ahead!

Back online

I am happy to announce that I am finally back online after being disconnected for a week. Annoying thieves stole the phone cables in our area which meant that I came home last Tuesday to a dead landline and zero Internet connection. Our landline was finally reconnected on Friday only for us to discover that they had connected another house’s landline number to our house. After my sibling sat on hold numerous times trying to sort things out we finally are connected once again and I have Internet. I no longer feel cut off from the rest of the world! Yippeee! Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead and hopefully it will fly by.


on Being Plum…

While walking through Topshop in Sandton City the other night, a friend of mine gave me some very wise advice and told me to start writing a blog. Starting my own blog is something I’ve wanted to do for such a long time and I just never seem to get round to it. So as I sit here on my couch, in front of the heater, I’ve set up a wordpress account and this is the beginning of Being Plum.
