3 Positives a Day

26 Jul

I was challenged by a friend to participate in the ’3 Positives a Day for 5 Days’ project. With the fast-paced lives we live, we don’t take the many opportunities to stop, smell the roses, and simply enjoy it.

So look around, be positive where you are and what you’ve achieved today, and spread some positivity!

Selfie Smiles All Round

14 Jul

SAY CHEEEEEEEEEESE!!
Strike a pose! Trying something new with a Tamper's Cold BrewSometimes all we need are people who can make us smile! And catching up & smiley selfies taken over the weekend with @PinkLittleBean, Rutland Arm’s Chef Mike and Silversmith’s Chef Lee – weekends were certainly made for days like these!

Being one of those ‘a cup-a-day coffee’ drinkers, and loving the smell of a freshly brewed cup of coffee, and the other day my friend, Clare introduced me to Tamper’s Cold Brew, served black over ice (the guys at Tamper have been brewing, testing, crafting and brewing again!). Some people will find the beverage perfect for a hot and humid day, but I think a dash of sweet condensed milk would compliment a cold brew tastefully! (it has a whopping great flavour. Oh, and it’s pretty potent too! :)

However busy life gets, always make time for a brew!

{Photos by @PinkLittleBean via twitter. Thanks for the selfies, Clare ~ great long arms, indeed!}

TdF 2014 Dahn Sarf (London)

8 Jul

TDF 2014 LondonTDF 2014 LondonTDF 2014 LondonLondon loves a proper cuppa tea!Cheers London for a great first experience of the TdF!Tour de France 2014 arrives in London

Happiness is not a destination. It’s seeing and appreciating the small beautiful things along the way!

What a fantastic afternoon watching the TdF whizz by to the finishing line on the Pall Mall with an incredible crowd. Those incredibly super fit cyclists riding for hours upon end certainly deserve treats & puddings. London certainly had a party whilst saying ‘au revoir’ to the peloton in the way it deserved!

I have loved following and seeing all the epic photos and tweets about this year’s TdF – from departing in North Yorkshire, making a Stage 2 grand finish in Sheffield and a final leg on UK soil to London. It was a wonderful vision of what beautiful cities could be like, if we truly embrace cycling (sports) and take a chance to become a proper ‘living’ city, a place centred around people not just cars and making money.

PLEASE let there be more events like these that bring people, strangers and communities TOGETHER! Cheers London for a great first experience of the TdF! – Missie Cindz x

Ayup Tour de Yorkshire 2014

6 Jul

 Ayup Tour de Yorkshire 2014Ayup Tour de Yorkshire 2014Ayup! Ayup! – Let’s wear a fantastic bright (yellow) T-shirt and enjoy the ride!

Good luck to all my Yorkshire friends back home in Sheffield today who are all enjoying the Tour de Yorkshire celebrations, and especially to the whole TDF Team taking part in the event’s stage two.

Unless you’ve been living in a hole for the past few months, you will know that the Tour De France is well and truly underway in good old Blighty, and not only that, but the Grand Depart was in my home county of Yorkshire and will be passing through my city of Sheffield today. Unfortunately, I’m not in Yorkshire to enjoy the festivities but the event will be passing through my (current) neighbourhood and ending in Central London tomorrow afternoon. I’m getting excited – and where will you be heading to watch it?

Finally, from the news and photos I’ve seen so far of the TDF 2014, I’m stoked to be a Yorkshire lass! Very well done everyone – Cindz x

So in today’s post I hope you enjoy these appropriately colourful Let’s Sail Away iPhone wallpapers I’ve illustrated.

I’ve been trying out a new illustrative, graphic style where I’m going back to basics and stripping back all the design clutter, use of several colours and decorative fuss, and yes, I’m also hinting from this post that it’s time for a HOLIDAY too! :) Apologies if I haven’t catered for your screen size however you could try the ‘stretch to fit screen’ option. Please don’t tile this, it’s not a pattern and will look odd and not very delicious if you do.

The best things in life are free!
