As Couture fashion week is commencing currently in Paris it's got me thinking about why such beauty, such drama and indulgence is necessary, both for the world of fashion and for our own lives. You see, for me, a life without magic, a life without fantasy, is a very sad place indeed. Reality at times can be quite hard work for all of us, most homes, relationships, businesses require at least a little of the stuff we don't feel like doing. So the fun bits, the dreamy parts, the visionary parts are in my opinion so worth focusing on, so this for me is what is so amazing about the sheer existence of couture and how this mindset can influence our own lives.

Whilst doing my first row of the year and well first for a few months, I found myself thinking about all the things I would like to achieve, both for myself and my family. You see, I have this innate desire to live a truly abundant life where I can live in beautiful places, eat high quality food and generally live what I feel is a high vibration life. A life which makes me feel true alive and on fire. Yet when I truly begin to explore this for myself and how I'm going to continue achieving this in an authentic way, it's interesting what feelings come up for me and I'm certain I’m not alone with this. So this is what I think….

I'm a snake and snakes love to shed their skins and start again so the new year feels good, new beginnings and new plans bring a feeling of renewed energy. Yet I'm getting a strong sense of how important it is not to throw the baby out with the bath water. This was one of my mother's mantras to me when as growing up as I would leap from one exiting adventure to the next. As I’ve grown older, and a little more sensible and I hope wiser, I now really understand this. You see, it's important we put time aside to stay still and value the roads we have travelled before we try and run ahead on to the next plans. Why is this important? Well this is what I think……
