I don’t care what anyone says, but black is the new black. It is irreplaceably the most classic, the most timeless, and the most chic of all colors (can I even call it that?). It’s what you throw on when you’re having any doubts about anything at all! If you’re having a bad hair day – High ponytail, all black. If you’re feeling a little rounder around the edges – black from head to toe. If you simply have no idea what to wear but still want to look crisp and well put together?

We’ve all had THAT moment…

We’ve all had THAT moment…

You know the one… it’s 2:30am, you’re doing your levelled best to get just a little bit of sleep, but your Everest-sized to-do list is haunting you.  Forget about counting sheep- you’re too busy counting how many things you have to do vs. just how little time you have to do it in.

But not just that.  Handle it, start to finish, without me having to worry about it getting done.  And, not just done, but Done with a capital D, to the level (or better?) that I would myself.

Even more (was I dreaming?)- it would get done, to the highest quality and attention to detail, and we’re having a laugh all the while that it’s happening?!? Continue reading “We’ve all had THAT moment…”
