Day 1820 - Natural Hay Fever Prevention

Eat honey!

Do you get hay fever? Before hay fever season hits try eating honey made by bees in your local area.  What happens is that the bee pollen found in honey can desensitise your body to other pollens.  So increasing your honey intake should reduce hay fever symptoms significantly.

Day 1818 - Wake up naturally

Are you waking up tired and grumpy?

Try sleeping with the blinds open.  Our bodies wake more peacefully to natures rising sun. The sun sends a signal to the brain to slow its production of melatonin and bump up the production of adrenaline which signals that it's time to wake up.  The waking up process is more gradual and peaceful than the jolt of the alarm clock. For the best effects be sure to go to bed at a reasonable hour so that you're still getting the recommended 7-8 hours sleep.

Day 1817 - Beach Picnic

I could get used to this springtime at the beach stuff!

My inner Goldie Locks is telling me that spring time at the beach is just perfect. Not too hot.  Not too cold.  It's just right.  Wonderful time of year for a beach side picnic.

There are a lot of things going on in our lives right now.  So many things that could break a person.  It's during these times more than ever that gratitude is essential.

Day 1814 - It's the little things

Don't you love it when shops give you that little bit extra?

I ordered a dress recently from Gwynnie's Emporium here in Canberra.  The lovely Chastina ("Gwynnie") delivered the dress to my door this week and I was delighted by the extra care she had taken with my package.  It was wrapped in tissue paper, with a bow, and a lovely Gwynnie's card, plus it came in a Gwynnie's branded carry bag.  The whole thing just made me feel special.  Now this is not a $500 dress. Nor is it a $100 dress.  The dress only cost me $59 but yet she still made me feel like a million bucks.  Sometimes it's the little things that make all the difference.

Day 1812 - Maleficent #DFFMaleficent

Interesting fact: The name Maleficent is a derivative of the Latin word maleficentia which means "evil doing".

It certainly looks "evil doing"! 

Who's seen Maleficent?  I personally haven't seen it yet, but it looks downright bloody scary! Disney has a habit of creating flicks that challenge all the senses.  Whether they be the big movie productions or the animated versions, there's usually something in there that brings out the evil in the world before it turns it back into a world of magic and wonder.

Yesterday was awesome. That's all I can say.  Yesterday we hosted a fashion show that raised money for Ovarian Cancer Research and it was a success!! It was a great day. So today I am going to bask in that awesome that was yesterday and just be a mum and a housewife for a day.  Sure ... I have a shitload of Cheer Chick Charlie and Achieve Beyond work to get done. And there is so much more awesome to create. But not today. Today is my mindless Monday ...
