I feel like I could say this at the end of almost every week but this past week, in particular has just flown by so fast!  There is so much happening both in my personal life and at my work that is keeping me focused and busy!  Whilst there’s been a few tough moments, I’ve been throwing myself 100% into my work and the rewards are showing!  On Friday evening, I successfully hosted my very first drinks party which was less stressful than expected.  Having the company CEO come up and shake hands and thank me for putting it together made the night totally worth it!  That being said, I couldn’t have done it without the incredible support of two wonderful ladies that I get to work with on a daily basis.

As mentioned in my last Weekend Musings post, my work has moved into the city and I’ve completely surprised myself by really loving the buzz that city life brings.  I’m a die-hard country girl at heart, so working in the city everyday wasn’t my cup of tea (so I thought!) but so far its been fun and challenging.  I’m loving the amazing selection of cafe’s and restaurants that our city has to offer!  If you are a reader from Melbourne or you’ve visited Melbourne and know a great cafe or restaurant, I’d love it hear it in the comments below!

I hope you all have successful week ahead!  As usual, here’s a round-up of things I’ve been loving of late…

LIVING ABUNDANTLY |  I found myself nodding “YES!” to every line in this article by Hillary Barnett and couldn’t wait to share it with you: How to Live an Abundant Life.  Lately, I’ve been making a conscious effort to re-train my thoughts to see circumstances (however unfortunate or unplanned they may be) in a positive light and I’ve been putting into practice some of Hillary’s ways to practice awareness in my daily routine.

YOGA | No joke, I’ve been under a ton of stress of late so the first thing I turned to was yoga.  I’ve been a huge fan of Yoga with Adrianne for ages but this tutorial in particular has been so helpful in helping me practice mindfulness and slow my mind down at the end of a long day.

HIS STYLE | I’m totally digging this preppy, summer look right here (and here) with a bonus shop-able link below!. Now all I have to do is find a guy who I can dress like this, right?!
