Inspire Me Monday

Today was a both a good and difficult day… a little of the Monday Blues for sure. Today is as good a day as ever to post up what is inspiring and motivating the start to the week…

I would love to be brave enough and colour my hair this tone one day! One item listed on my Bucket List is to lighten my hair to a kind of blonde, a light caramel/honey such as this would be fantastic!

 
 
Love Thy Body
I find Beyonce so inspiring! She is a strong, talented and inspirational woman. A fantastic role model for women and well as younger girls. Especially as she is curvy, a real size who looks fantastic and shines confidence! One of the most beautiful people… ever…

A stunning pair of shoes makes me smile. I love looking at the design and thinking of the craftmanship that went into making them. These ankle boots with bows are just adorable! Love the blush colour, they are called Caroline and are available from Sole Society
 
 
Look At Me Eyes…
I absolutely love this beauty look – it has a very classic vibe with a fresh, modern twist. Great idea to contrast the black cat-eye liner with a splash of gold glitter. Make it your own -attempt a different colour! I am excited to try this! Perfect for girls’ nights out, dates and events such as weddings

Life is all about the journey. Every single step you take, person you meet, conversation you have, place you go and action you do plays a part in getting you to the person you will be. Creates your story, when we are young we all just want to grow up. But why? We should not rush to the end, enjoy the journey, create a memorable story. Make your life, your story, your very own legacy. The highs, the lows, the greatest and most exciting moments of your life, the challenges and struggles all play a significant part in how you will be remembered. So open the book, grab the pen and start LIVING.
 
 
Hope something on this list inspires you… maybe you have your own. What is inspiring your start to the week? Happy end to the Monday. Sarah/Kooklah Xo

style icons

I have two main style icons- Audrey Hepburn and Drew Barrymore. They both portray confidence in what they wear and aren’t afraid to take risks with their fashion.

Audrey inspires me because her sense of style was feminine yet practical. She wore hats, pants, detailed beautiful dresses. And of course, made the LBD an iconic piece of clothing, becoming a must have in every girl’s wardrobe. I have atleast five. She also dressed for her shape, in clothes that suited her features which inspires me to no end to dress to suit my individual style and comfort. Plus the lady could wear a hat well, enough said.

Drew inspires me by the way she dresses in many different styles. In the blink of an eye she can go from edgy rock chick to floaty dreamy girly girl clothing. Her clothing choices are always quirky showing alittle bit of her personality. Mostly whatever she wears you can tell she believes it and loves the clothes. She also isn’t afraid to experiment and mix styles- something I also love to do. She is very curvy, which as someone who is also curvy, I find it inspiring that she celebrates her curves with her fashion choices instead of hiding it. In a society where there is sometimes pressure to be thin I am thankful for an icon like Drew, as she said “God gave me working arms and legs, why should I complain about my curves and my body”.
