Friday Fashionista :: { The Maxi Skirt }

Hey guys happy happy weekend! How has this week been for you? I can't believe it's December on Sunday... that's just a bit exciting I think. Have you started your Christmas shopping? I have decided I am more of a "shop around and wait til something jumps out at me" kind of shopper, rather than a "make a list and search and search for that specific thing". That way it's more spontaneous... and when I see something I think someone will love, I just grab it. That happened with a gift  for my niece yesterday afternoon. I was just casually shopping, then I saw something she told me she reeeeeeally wanted a few months ago... immediately I smiled, went into the store and got it. Now I can't wait to give it to her! Ahhh, I love giving gifts like that. It's so fun! :) It made me think, that's what God's like with us... he knows exactly what gifts we love and what makes our hearts happy, then he can't waittttt to give them to us. :):) So onto today's Friday Fashionista... it's inspired by a friend of mine's idea, which I have tweaked it slightly. :) So here we are today with the maxi. Whether it's paired with sparkles, a grey marle tee, a cute singlet or a cropped jacket, the maxi skirt is a fab addition to the wardrobe. Enjoy my friends! :) x

Pretty fun hey! Makes me want to go shopping :):) What are you up to this weekend? Tomorrow I might go to the Spring Hill Peony Farm in Kyneton. I'm off to the National Gallery this afternoon with my mum and my two aunties... I can't wait, I just love that place. Then perhaps some more Christmas shopping he he............ 

Whatever you are up to, have fun!

Wake with joy.

Thankfulness shifts things. Have you ever had a day where you're feeling sorry for yourself? Maybe you're sulking with your very best pout, (I'm sure none of you reading this blog have ever felt like that, he he...) then suddenly, something captures your attention. It might be something small; like tiny, pretty pink wildflowers poking out of the concrete on the side of the road, or a baby's giggle, or perhaps it might be a elderly gentleman you've helped in the supermarket. Whatever's happening, begin to thank God for it, let loose, and wait for that joy to come.
There is ALWAYS something we can be thankful for. :) Just stop, even now. Have a look around you. Have a think. Imagine not being able to see? Or hear, or walk, or live. It's almost unfathomable. We have SO much to be grateful for. What if, over the next few weeks, we purposed in our hearts to wake up each morning, and even before we open our eyes, to be thankful, and position ourselves for the day. All it takes from you is eight little words.
It's true! And what a great time of year to release our joy. Even when sometimes we might feel like we've misplaced our joy, it's not a surprise to him. He's always got more for us! "In His presence there is fullness of joy".
God is trying to get your attention today. He's got surprises for you! Will you receive them? Imagine you've prepared a gift for someone, and you're waiting excitedly for them to arrive so you can give it to them... well this is what our heavenly dad has done for us today! 
So start the day afresh now: close your eyes, 
think of something you can be thankful for... and wake with JOY.

love nat xox
