A lovely lady got in contact with me after I was recommend to her by some magical fairies! We can’t work out who or how or when but lucky me as I had some fun with swiss meringue buttercream which is a firm fave. So the brief - “ a blue cake for a drummer who likes biscuits”. What we have here is a 7 inch tall choc sponge cake filled with Oreo Swiss meringue buttercream and extra layering of Oreo crumb dress with a little 30th sparkle and some yummy biscuits. All this needs now is a cup of tea! #cakefordrummer#bakestoyourdoor#northlondonbaker#swissmeringuebuttercream#keeptrying#oreo#oreobuttercream#birthdaycake
Flex Friday... 💪🏻🤓👊🏻
I will always want bigger arms, but at least I’m trying. Had a month not training them directly, but decided I’m going to switch back.
So now I’m training them with high volume, frequently and adding in supersets; hoping it will force a little growth.
I try to change my workouts up every couple of weeks... train the same... remain the same... 🤞🏻🤓💥
#RealReel ... I don’t feel very strong and I definitely don’t feel loved. Not at all. The opposite in fact. At times, I’m barely functioning. I question the simplest things like, if I even have a place in this world anymore. So much of what I love has been stripped away from me either by death or plain old life :: By nothing other than God’s grace, mercy and bold voice telling me to “KEEP GOING!” I’m still here. Still fighting :: Jesus, I know You are close. So close. I wish I could see You. Talk to You. I wish I had answers I will never have .... but I never have to question Your love because it’s unconditional. Stay close, Jesus. I need You more than anyone could ever imagine. The days are so long and hard right now. They are also very lonely. I’m fighting to just keep going. I promise to fight as long as I can. I need You though. It’s been so long since I saw a rainbow, I pray for one of those soon :: Some people can be a lot to handle. I’m one of those people, but if you’re reading this, I ask you not to give up on a friend even if they are at their most unloveable. You may not even like them that much in their current state. It probably means they need you more than ever :: I pray one day I feel strong again. I pray one day I feel loved again. I pray one day I’ll get my life back. Until then, I’ll just keep fighting and try to remember the blessings over the confusion 🌟 #keepfighting#dontgiveup#mentalhealthawareness#depression#anxiety#heartbreak#loss#griefjourney#lifejourney#experiences#strength#prayer#hope#love#rainbows#shootingstars#lendahand#positiveaffirmations#stayfocused#grace#mercy#faith#justkeepswimming#keeptrying
✨ I had to remind myself that it’s okay to make mistakes, to not understand something, to completely fall flat on your face in failure
I thought about when my kids were learning how to walk. When they fell, I didn’t tear them down for falling over, I clapped and celebrated that they stood up! They tried! And they took a step forward! Yay! I encouraged them to try and keep trying
So I had to extend myself the same courtesy. It’s okay if I’m not perfect, I’m trying and learning, that’s the goal. And it’s okay if you aren’t perfect either! .
I’m trying to increase my output. I need to read more, write more, and teach more. I want to profoundly impact people’s lives for the better, but it starts with one small step, then another, then another. Prolific leads to profound. #keeptrying#entrepreneur#bebettereveryday
Ok instagram, this is me. First picture, no pose, lopsided ponytail, hair that hasn’t been washed in a few days, nursing bra straps out, armpit boobs and blotchy skin. I’m not the most instagram-able person nor is my house, but I don’t care. I do my best to give myself basic care (clean clothes, smell nice) give my kids the same (full bellies, clean clothes, smiles). I’m not up on fashion or make up but I like to play with styles and enjoy putting on make up. I’m not a trendsetter or influencer but I like to hear from those I’ve inspired. Social media doesn’t have to be a hunting ground for bullies. Sometimes we just want to see others like us, just trying to keep our heads above water while making the most of life. I hope someone, somewhere will read this and breath a sigh of relief. It’s not a competition on who is most tired or who can’t “Adult” most, just do your thing and share the kindness people. C’mon. Our kids are going to rule the world soon, not sure about you but I don’t want to be told what to do when I’m old by a bunch of assholes. #bekind#beexcellenttoeachother#instagram#mom#momlife#influencer#inspired#justbereal#notacompetition#wearealltired#momoffour#nofilter#reallife#nomoney#dothebest#keeptrying#makethemsmile#memories#longpost
