We tried to get a view of this wonderful little desert oasis during the day when there was nobody on the dunes but the sand was SO HOT that Oli's shoes melted and my feet were burning so much that I had to run to a tree for safety 😂🔥
Where is the hottest place you've ever been? 🌍

Let’s talk New Year Resolutions... I read interesting statistics this morning that share over 80% of resolutions fail within the first 30 days 😱 DONT LET THIS BE YOU!
How to create a higher success rate?
That’s it! Get clear on what you’re looking to make improvements in and act ahead of time.
Remember time is just a construct, what if you started now on the changes you wanted to make and by January 1st you were already achieving your resolution?
HUGE!! Check out the top 10 resolutions I found from this past year
1. Exercise more
2. Eat healthier
3. Save money
4. Lose weight
5. Reduce stress
6. Stick to a budget
7. Get more sleep
8. Spend more time with family
9. Learn a new skill
10. Travel more
Do any of those match up with things you want?
If so, let’s chat. I can assist guidance in all 10 areas

Maybe it's a coincidence that I picked a quote about wine for today's featured post from @natashalemley, maybe not. 😁
Anyway, Natasha lives in South Africa and you should really make sure to follow her, otherwise you'll miss all her wonderful pictures of South African nature, like this one of the Transkei! 😊
🤔 For some reason, most 🖼 photos I’d come across from 🇺🇸 Boston’s 🏛 Public Library were from the main 📖 reading room.
But there was 🌸 beauty all around the building!
Sundays are family day in our house. Whether it’s church and brunch, board games and movies, or a family hike followed by a good home cooked dinner, Sunday is the day we reconnect after a week of craziness. ⠀
Its our first cold Christmas here in London, we are enjoying seeing our 4 year old experience new things in this climate. He was so excited to see his first frozen leaf, its been a huge conversation around temperatures going below zero, how it happens, what it will feel like and also how we even have to dress differently. It was a fun morning walk to school picking up those icy leaves
When you feel like you’re flying even though your boots are firmly on the ground. That’s why I adventure.

I can't get enough Polish food, and it shows when I get all the leftovers on the food tour! These are pierogi, loosely defined as Polish dumplings, and oh so delicious! We had over half a dozen Polish specialties on our tour, and we still barely scratched the surface of the local cuisine. I can't recommend a food tour enough when visiting a new city, especially in Poland! #polishcuisine#FoodTour#kraków
“When we let our light shine we give others permission to do the same.” Four years ago I challenged myself to my first Bikini Comp. I wasn’t “stage” ready, per my coach, and I probably should have pushed my show out. This was not why I did it. It was me vs me. I was doing this for me. During this 4 month prep I revamped my whole business, had to release some relationships, and suffered a huge loss in my family but I didn’t let that stop me.
When it comes down to it, life happens. Believe me I know. What are you waiting for?
If you want to make a health change, do it.
If you want to run, do it.
If you want to start a home base business, do it.
If you want to take a vacation do it.
If you want to fall in love, do it.
You truly can accomplish anything once you say YES.
I thought we were stealthily observing this guy from the ridge above the gully, but apparently we weren’t ninja enough. He was interested in us, but certainly didn’t seem concerned by our presence. He continued across the gully and into the forest on the other side. Bonus: He had broken trail along the route we were taking so our trip out was a little easier. (Also: Anybody know how to tell if this is a male or female?)

In case you don’t watch stories, which can get very overwhelming for me, I did a thing this weekend. Yep, I finally got my mini store up.
I’m only set up for US commerce for now, but if you’re somewhere else let me know and I’ll figure something out 🌸
After several featured posts this week I'll continue with my picture series from my US trip in 2015. On our way from Los Angeles to San Francisco Big Sur definitely was one of the biggest highlights! 😍
I feel like I’ve spent most of 🗓 November between 🏴 England and 🇳🇿 New Zealand. And so does my body, as it’s currently struggling to stay 🦉 asleep while in a 🛌 bed in London at ⏰ 4am!
I hope 🗓 December 🎄 will end up being more 🧳 adventurous and less 😴 jetlagged! But the latter is as likely as me owning a 🇵🇱 polish 🏰 palace in the outskirts of Warsaw... 🛏 💭 👑 ——————————————————————

Totally worth the hike up to the top and asking our guide to take us right to the very top for this incredible view of Mount Agung at sunrise ✨
I would highly recommend adding this to your itinerary if it’s not already on there ✨
It looks like I finally found a person who likes winter as much as I do. 😁 Anyway, it's time for a few promotion days - and I'll start with this beautiful picture from @ginger__cinnamon!
You should really make sure to follow Alessandra and check out her gallery for more hidden gems in Europe and beyond! 😊 She has visited 37 (!) countries (+ Puerto Rico and Palestine, which aren't official countries ☝️😌) and it's a real treat to see her amazing pictures from all the special places she has been to. 🤩
So it’s Thanksgiving week and you know what that means...Lots of amazing treats and enjoying holiday foods with family and friends— the best, really! I know for me, I'll be eating stuff I only really eat this time of year.
And who doesn’t feel stuffed and groggy afterwards? Your jeans don’t zip and you are bloated and reaching for your stretchiest yoga pants — right? Keep that rolling on through Christmas and New Year, and you’ve probably put on more than 10 pounds!! That’s a typical weight gain during the holidays for most people.
But don’t worry— we got you! Start with my group on Monday, December 2nd, rocking out this amazing superfood system together that will have you back in your favorite jeans in no time.
The best part? You get to go to all the season’s parties and enjoy holiday indulgences and STILL roll up on New Years nice and lean and feeling amazing! It’s the smartest way to enjoy the season!
There’s so much support! All the coaching is free and you won’t believe how different you feel in just a couple weeks.
Who’s in for crushing their December and getting a total jump on New Year goals? 🙋♀️
It was my 1️⃣6️⃣th visit to 🇲🇹 Malta and I was with a 👫 friend. And it was 🥵 hotter than I’d anticipated. So, I did less 📝 things than usual and took less 📷 photos than I’m used to.
But this 🏘 street in Birgu was 🌸 cute. And I’m happy I got to revisit this historical neighbourhood after 7️⃣ years. It’s changed quite a bit!
You may have seen basalt rock formations in 🖼 photos from 🇮🇸 Iceland, 🇯🇵 Japan, 🇺🇸 California or 🇮🇪 Ireland, but they’re usually vertical.
At 🇮🇸 Iceland’s Reynisfjara Black Sand 🏖 Beach, I discovered their horizontal version! It reminded me of a stack of 🌳 logs!
Do you agree or does it remind you of something else❓I’m curious to hear! 🤔
I’m usually a behind the camera person. If you ever wanted to know more about me, my work, the universe, the meaning of life, okay we don’t get that deep. But I did an interview! There’s even an actual picture of me! The link is also in the bio if you’re interested.
