6th March 2018: I ♥ Change


Dear Diary,

It’s only Tuesday, but what a week it’s been!

It has been officially announced that Job No. 1 (my day job) is changing, and I am gradually moving to a new team, which will hopefully provide more of a challenge (always looking to learn more!).

I’m LOVING FASHION SCHOOL!!! I wish I had taken the plunge sooner! We had our first construction class today, and man, soo many ideas, soo little time. There is something about the act of creating that GIVES ME LIFE…. I am looking forward to seeing what will come of such a short course.

I can’t remember if I already mentioned that I have been offered work experience with a couture fashion designer?! (AKA a couturier). Soo very excited about this! Although I’m yet to start, and don’t have a whole lot of time to fit this in, but we’ll see what comes of it! There is soo much about the industry that can only be picked up by working in it. ESPECIALLY in haute couture, which I am particularly drawn to…

Every day, I can feel the hunger to grow my dream empire grow, and with it, my ideas on how to do it. With each prospect, comes more anxiety about what could go wrong, but I know I just have to do it. I know how much it sucks to just settle, so I just need to get on with it and go all in.

I am still rundown, which is a pain because it’s hard to do yoga without coughing and spluttering so I’ve had to take time out. Sigh. At least I am actually getting better… just slowly.
Stay magical,




Sass & Grind Saturday: You Deserve Success


Business man in suit ready for meeting

There’s a reason they say “fake it ’til you make it”. You may have been grinding your ass for months now, but if there’s a part of you that still doesn’t believe that you deserve the fruits of your efforts, trust me, the world can see it.

This is a problem because the only one who truly knows how hard you’ve worked, how much you’ve given up, is you. So if you don’t think you deserve it, why would anyone else?

Maybe you were told your idea was stupid, maybe you were told that you’d never amount to anything of value to the rest of the world, but it’s all noise, and it’s bullshit. So snap out of it.

If you’ve been busting your ass, continuously pushing yourself out of your comfort zone, tweaking the formula day in and day out, why would you not deserve success? Can you actually tell me why you don’t deserve success? Go on, write it out. Write down why you don’t deserve it, and read it back to yourself. Does that make logical sense to you? Probably not.

So go on and hold your head high, wear that crown, and strut through your day like you’re a Victoria’s Secret supermodel. You are the Queen of your world, or at least you’re about to be, and you’ve EARNED IT.


Then get back to work 😉

Have a fantastic day!






Day 58: 90 Day Commitment Challenge with Danelle Delgado


Day 58 was a good one for my sense of current self, and knowing who I want to become. For those of you who have been reading my blogs or watching my vlogs for a while, you may know that I write my goals down every day. Yesterday I also started writing down what my ideal day looks like.

I started to write down how I would spend my ideal day, because this is really the first big goal that I’m heading towards, the freedom to spend my day doing exactly the way that I choose. This in turn will allow me the freedom and time I need to put full steam into my other larger goals, like funneling more time and money into the not-for-profit groups that I am passionate about, and making music.

I think this is going to be a useful wee addition to my morning goal-writing! It helps me envision the next big achievement ahead!

I hope you’re smashing it today!




Day 33: 90 Day Commitment Challenge with Danelle Delgado


A big day yesterday preparing for my potential work opportunity! Also a small win today, succeeding at a yoga flow that got the better of me last time around… it was definitely still hard-going, but I made it to the end!

 I hope you smashed your goals today!



Day 32: 90 Day Commitment Challenge with Danelle Delgado


Yesterday was one of those days that you know you’ve been planning for, and it all starts becoming real! It started small, with a potential work opportunity coming my way, and ended with a plan of action to tackle everything I need to do next to make it happen!

Here’s to digging deep, and hard work paying off!

I hope you smashed your goals today,





Day 30: 90 Day Commitment Challenge with Danelle Delgado


This morning as I try to write, while being mauled by a furry cuddle monster, I had to pause to reflect on what was the 30th day of the challenge, and a third of the way to the end of this challenge.

There have been unforeseen challenges to overcome, criticisms from others, criticisms from myself, and definitely lessons learned.

Yesterday found out a bit more information about the challenges coming my way, but instead of throwing my hands in the air, giving up, and settling into a life of bitterness, resentment, and compromise at the expense of my dreams, I strapped myself in and got stuck into figuring out how I was going to make it work.

I may feel like I work hard now, and that the road up until this point has been no exception, but strap yourself in Laveena, that sweat just laid the foundation for what is to come.

I hope you’re smashing your goals today!




Day 21: 90 Day Commitment Challenge with Danelle Delgado


Although I am committed to hitting my goals every day, some days are still more productive than others, and yesterday was one of those more productive days!

Although there were a million things to do and they didn’t necessarily come easily, I got my list ticked off, and collapsed into bed last night a little more satisfied than usual.

I’m feeling good about the new challenges coming my way, and although I don’t really know what’s going to happen, I feel I am preparing for them as best as I can, and I will tackle them head on as they come!

I hope you’re smashing your goals today!
