Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

I love my new boots… credit card going into retirement

Ok, so I’m not one of those girls that loves to shop. No really I’m not. I do have certain friends that bring out the shopper in me (you know who you are), but for the most part I can take it or leave it. Except for shoes. Specifically boots. I have an irrational love for boots. I was even thinking about having floating shelves installed in my foyer so that I could feature them a little more. They are art.

Anyway, I’ve been stalking this one pair of boots for a year now… they were over $200 so I decided to admire them form a far. Well Sunday I found them for $45 in the colour I love IN MY SIZE.

So now with recent shopping and Brazil booked and on my credit card… it’s time to retire the card for a bit… until September?

No more shopping (groceries and gas only).
Bag lunches to work.
No more Starbucks (well not 3x Day).
Fun Tammy goes back into hibernation.

We’ll see if I can stick to this?

    Yes I want to see the boots too. Just charge your digital camera to your credit card. What’s a few more hundred dollars?

Three days at a silent retreat might seem terrifying to some, but this introvert loved it. Here are a few reasons why. No tech, after taking a few pictures I surrendered my phone. The need to capture everything that caught my eye was replaced with a hunger to observe everything deeply. Practicing the ancient art of pen writing. I spent time with my thoughts, journaling and doodling them out. Without Google to ask, I spent more time thinking things through, exercising my problem solving skills. I perused the library and rekindled my love for books. I just wish I could find a copy of that book I didn’t finish. The tea station with every imaginable fresh herb 🌿 for bespoke creations. I’m not a foodie, but I do love when food is healthy and so well prepared that I’d choose it over a burger and fries. The evening campfires reminded me of home. And I burned some baggage 🧳 I’m ready for a longer silent stay if anyone has any local suggestions. #silentretreat #bali #retreat #digitaldetoxchallenge
One of the most memorable places I stayed in Bali was north @villageabovetheclouds I woke up, meditated, ate, and practiced yoga with a view of the countryside and rice fields. #ricefields #bali #baliindonesia #sunrise
Singapore you surprised me! My Australian visa didn’t come through in time so I made a last minute switch at the airport to @singapore Such a unique and beautiful country. Clean and safe streets, architecture mixed with nature, and lively cultural pockets around every corner. Highlights for me were little Turkey, India, and Chinatown, and the food! #singapore #travel #nature #gardensbythebay #sentosaisland #singaporesling #longbar
Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
