Happy Valentine's Day ❤️
Valentine's Day is the holiday of Romance. But not everyone is in a romance of LOVE in its active state and ignited tomorrow.
Practicing self love and loving everything and everyone around you I believe will help you stay in a state of love, vibrating healing energy. ❣
This Day is an opportunity to ignite and appreciate an existing relationship with romance and love. The added dose of romance will reset a stronger, passionate and ignited romance.
But for those out there not in a relationship here are my tips I will be practising tomorrow.
I did see and experience something today so I have written an inspired poem, even if it was for a short moment that reminded me of first love and feelings.
Here we go!
Unexpected Love and Connection
My Stomach starts to ache, my head drops and my hands shake
As he draws close to me, I throw myself into a headstand to detract myself from the feeling
My heart beats faster than ever before,
Until I hit the floor,
The butterflies tickle and tease until I can't take it anymore.
I begin to tremble and want to run, as he looks and smiles
I can feel myself blushing,
by looking down I tried to hide my fluster,
I look up and see his face staring at me, I smile softly, fill my water bottle
With his handsome face, and fit strong body,
he gives me a smile and a wink,
So electrifying energy and connection,
I feel that this Prince Charming is for me
This feeling is more than a crush
when I think about him I get sudden rush
Why oh why, I wonder, can't he just be mine?
I wish tomorrow he was.... my valentine....
Nothing Like and old fashion Valentine’s Poem. But what about all those beautiful women out there not in a relationship too. How can you spend Valentine’s Day?
Well I am one of those, single and seeking my dream man, looking to find my life long soul mate.
I remember finding this a few years ago on the Northern Beaches. someone is out there and he is getting closer and closer....
Check out my 5 Tips to spend a beautiful day for Valentine’s.
1. Check out with your friends who is free and fun. Book in a breaky, lunch or movies with your friend, someone you know you can laugh and have fun with.
2. Make my homemade chocolates for a male friend, or elderly person, remember giving something simple or doing something for someone else is what truly gives us a sense of happiness and fulfilment.
3. Pick flowers from your garden or find some wild flowers, make a bunch and tie red ribbon around it. Give them to your children or an elderly person.
4. Send a message of Love and Light out on your social media or send text messages to your family ‘Happy Valentine’s Day, I love you!’
5. Practice affirmations of ‘I love and accept myself just as I are, I am more than enough’

Raw Goji Berry Chocolate Cake
Do you crave chocolate? Cacao powder is full of nutrients. It looks like cocoa but retains all its natural goodness making it a good substitute to eat when you crave chocolate. Serves 4
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup Raw cacao powder
1/2 cup goji berries, plus extra to decorate
1⁄2 cup cranberries, plus extra to decorate
1⁄2 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt
Melt the coconut oil in a pan over gentle heat until liquid. Add the cacao powder and salt and stir through. Add the goji berries and cranberries. Pour into a 61⁄2 x 4 in (17 x 11 cm) container lined with baking paper. Add more berries pushing them into the top for decoration.
Now for the big question, who will be receiving my Valentine's Home made Raw Chocolates and flowers???

A few weeks ago I gazed out the aircraft window coming into land at Dunedin airport . I have done this over and over again for the last 25 years. Some coming back and forward as a New Zealand Hairdressing Judge, NZ Judges committee member, Salon owner, Bikini Fitness competitor, some as the new bride, pregnant woman, new mother , divorced, Single, with my kids as babies & children.
As I gaze out the window again, over the familiar landing scape, into Dunedin Airport, over the mountains, hills and ocean I see bright green lushes of land.
I find myself awakening the smells of the familiarity I know well from growing up in Dunedin as I disembark the plane .
The smell of summer grass that Dad would cut, the sound of lawn mower, the sound of the horses shoes plodding down the dusty roads we rode, the heat of the burning NZ sun on my shoulders riding down the tracks on the horse to the beach and riding the sand dunes with my late friends Karen and Jayne, picking cherries from the orchards and the galloping down the orchards with my friends scaring away the birds, the fresh organic food , the morning frosts and the sound of the crunchy grass, the amazing sunsets behind Saddle Hill from my parents window, the buzz of Dunedin when the All Blacks were in town , the sound of the crowds at Carisbrook. The memories live on.
My love and appreciation I have my country will always be deep, the earthy and humble people, my family my friends I pride. No matter what part of the world you are from "Home" I can imagine awakens these feelings and emotions, when you touch down on your home-land, that triggers many senses in our mind, body and soul.
My recent trip was one I will remember, I had the most special time with my parents and especially my Dad, who is not well at the moment. We had so much time together to muck around in his garden and appreciate what he has worked hard all his life to harvest and create in my childhood background.
It is very special and I am proud to say it is still my Dad's child-hood home he was raised in. My grandfather owned the house and raised the 4 sons and 1 daughter. All alive but one uncle. My dad took over the family home and built my Grandfather the Granny Flat, which we call the 'HUT'
So you can imagine the memories we share on this property, I can still call HOME.
