Blue Monday they say? More like Golden Monday! . What a beaut weekend! I'm not naturally a Winter lover, but you know what- sunny days are usually clearer, crisper and more awe-inspiring than their Summer compatriots. Whatever the difference - I love them! 😍. . I discovered some new sunny day places this weekend in the borders of Beds & Bucks. Where are your favourite places to visit on a sunny winter day? . 📷 by @collabcreativeuk /@mbishopphotography
Have you heard that Tring has a new Yoga and Pole studio? Yes, friends that is the type where you do some slidy dancing around/ along a pole (as opposed to the blokes in funny clothes with sticks and bells...although we do like that type round these parts too.). . Pretty cool eh? Check out the gorgeous Zara @nevaeh_pole_and_yoga in her beautiful new zen-like home in the Akeman business park. Her brand new space is tranquil home to yoga, pole, soon kids classes also and boxing and no doubt much more. . Welcome to Tring Zara! And I'm totally booking in for class soon so get in quick if you want to see me do something slidy and embarrassing 🤪.
Anyone else looking at 2020 like one big adventure? Ok, ok, I know there'll be work, things will get busy and at times difficult... but mostly right now, I feel excited! I wonder who we'll meet this year, what places we'll go to, what experiences we'll have...I'm starting a list! And of course there's plenty of trusty favourites to return to! . We just can't wait to share with you our travels from the Three Counties, it's amazing people and businesses with you! . What's on your must-see/ must-try list this year? Who would you like to hear from?
How was your weekend? And hands up who's doing Dry January out there? It's not one for me...I prefer to saunter timidly into the New Year, without making too many major changes in the hope that if I keep my head down I'll be able to stay out of trouble! 😆 That said, I'm definitely ready for a generally healthier lifestyle and have been glad to keep the hard stuff for the weekends, cut back on caffeine, loose the every day chocolate and when it's a sunny day like today, I want to grab some fresh air and embrace our beautiful outdoors more. I mean just look at this! 😍 This is why I love winter...that gentle low lying sun is just so atmospheric and feels almost magical. It's like year loading - good things are coming. Yep I believe it it too. ✨ . Thank you so much to @goexplorechilterns for sharing this gorgeous shot and reminding us to get out to Wendover Woods more often. We have so many staggering outdoor spaces to enjoy, we really are spoilt for choice.
Who's been needing all the coffees this week? 🙋♀️. I kind of have a perma-headache from all the withdrawal of caffeine/ alcohol/ chocolate 😬. Definitely time for healthy start! . If you want to see some proper jumping in 2020 enthusiasm (I wish I had that energy, this week) check out @helloruthuk today, who's doing some fun stuff with video. . Now what's everyone doing this weekend? If you want to get creative , check out @leila_ward_designs who's running art classes for the next few months - details on our website Events page. Have a lovely weekend all! . 📷 by @mbishopphotography/ @collabcreativeuk
Some things change, and some things stay the same. 🖤 . It's good to be back! What are you all looking forward to in 2020? . 📷 by @mbishopphotography / @collabcreativeuk
I may have left it a little late to say Happy New Year 🙈, but I'm not going to let that stop me now wishing you all well for 2020! 🖤 . I hope you all enjoyed some time off with friends or family and can walk into the New Year with some rested energy. This has been my longest break from Social Media yet and have been grateful for the time to invest in family, home, rest... and also some business planning. . 2020 brings with it, (slightly scary) excitement and opportunity as it will be my first year running the blog as a full time freelancer. We have been busy strategizing, planning and refocusing our business over the last few months to make it more efficient, and more focused for our followers and members. More about that soon! . I don't believe in New Year's resolutions, but I do believe in the power of reflection and refocusing your work or life to aim for where you'd really like to be. Who's making some changes in 2020? Big or small to life or business? Share your goals, we'd love to hear! 🌟😊
MERRY XMAS! To all our followers, members, workshop, meet-up & social attendees, all the businesses we've collaborated with and all the venues that have hosted us. We appreciate you all and everything you do to help keep this community great 🙏. . We are logging off now for some much needed rest and family time but also some time to refocus and plan. Changes are coming and we look forward to rolling them out to you in the New Year.⭐ . Wishing you all the very best of times this Xmas and a happy and prosperous 2020. Katy & Matt x 🖤
