Personality Test

Have you ever taken a personality test?

I found this one, after reading someone's blog, it's called 41 questions.

Here's mine:

Your personality type: "Harmony-seeking Idealist"
Quietly forceful, original and sensitive. Tend to stick to things until they are done. Extremely intuitive about people and concerned for their feelings. Well-developed value systems which they strictly adhere to. Well-respected for their perserverence in doing the right thing. Likely to be individualistic, rather than leading or following.

Careers that could fit you include:
Counselors, clergy, missionaries, teachers, medical doctors, dentists, chiropractors, psychologists, psychiatrists, writers, musicians, artists, psychics, photographers, child care workers, education consultants, librarians, marketeers, scientists, social workers.

How you start your day is a reflection of how the rest of your day will go.

Being Graceful

One of the things I'm passionate about, is women who inspire and have inspired.
To me that includes;

My Mom,

Mother Theresa,

Princess Diana,

Audrey Hepburn,

Princess Grace,

Doris Day,

Jackie Kennedy Onassis and

Taylor Swift

They have all taught me different ways to be graceful. And they are women who have touched others lives.

~And, if I have a daughter, I will share with her, what real beauty is.~

Milk The Pigeon

I have to tell you about a website I recently came across called Milk the Pigeon.

They quote:

“The future belongs to those who believe in their dreams.”
-Eleanor Roosevelt

I couldn't agree more with Eleanor Roosevelt. When someone tells you their dream, don't mock it or question it.

Be excited for them.

Maybe they will prove themselves wrong, maybe right. But don't be a downer, or selfish.

Be happy, and let others dream.

Happy Tuesday to you.

I treated myself to some beautiful sunflowers today. They add extra charm to our kitchen.

In other news,

we found two houses we adore on The Cape to buy, yet they will probably sell before we make our move.

One, had the potential to look like a Father of The Bride home, the other has Cape charm.

Well, one can dream.

Have a happy week!

Show Us Your Life {Bathrooms}

Over at Kelly's Corner today's SUYL topic is bathrooms.

When I moved in with my fiance last year, this powder room was dark, gloomy and a paint disaster. He had attempted several painting techniques, and as a result of them failing left the room incomplete, even the light switch covers were missing.

I was daunted at first, but decided on a much lighter color, a soft yellow to compliment our collection of African memorabilia.

We found this canvas print, with oil paint texture while accessory shopping. It's large scale adds a focal point to the room.

I know I need to dusk, okay!

Here is our medicine cabinet, it also houses extra toilet rolls [respectively] so guests can see them. Also I've found several African print hand towels.

The cabinet was painted brown before I moved in, as was the granite and back splash, we did all the mill work to add some character.

I found this glass vase, It blends in with the background. Sometimes, when guests are over I put a flameless candle inside, so it has a subtle glow.


...and knife.

Here's the view from the hallway and a short, 21 second video.

Excuse my hair, I had it clipped up!!!

Interested to see your bathrooms
