Salsa On

Published July 31, 2014 by itsachunglife

I would like to start this post by thanking a certain friend who I appreciate so much for just getting me out of the house for a catch up and a drink.  This is exactly what I needed to remind myself there are positive vibes out there no matter the situation.   Parts of my life which are not ideal right now shouldn’t be casting darkness over invaluable things such as nurturing  the friendships that count, and the progress made on that  self-improvement/self-awareness bandwagon.

So she took me to Cloudland, it’s not Cloud 9 but it comes pretty close on Salsa night Thursdays.  The décor looks luxuriously sophisticated.  There are private booths surrounded by overhanging plants; there’s a waterfall,  and if you look closely butterflies are encased in some of the furnishings.  The crowd polishes up well too, and an extra bonus are the $10 mojito’s and margaritas!

Now back to the crowd, the suited up crowd to be exact and even on the weekends it’d be rare to find the jeans/tshirt attire in there which is what I love about it.  So much that it is starting to be my regular Thursday spot.  I like to use this time as a mid-week catch up with the girlfriends over a few drinks, then we mingle into the d- floor while the white trouser and matching hat man demonstrates the basic salsa moves on stage for about half an hour before moving onto more tricky moves.  For the most part it’s pretty fun I get lost in the moment and feel like I’m in a dance group or something HEEEY!   Hands down one of the best ways to unwind midweek….until someone stands on your foot with their stiletto heel!  OMG so painful I’m still feeling it 2 or 3 weeks later!  But who am I to complain when I too am guilty of doing this.

March and Die

Published April 9, 2014 by itsachunglife

So March turned out to be the shittiest month ever!

But instead of airing this horrid piece of laundry, I will share with you one quote per day that got me though this month.  These are the little bits of treasure which gave me hope, strength and the determination to stop crying and feeling sorry for myself and to realise that with every bad situation; if you search hard enough you will find the good that comes with it.

I am also eternally grateful to have such a great friend who has basically given me Tuesday Therapy sessions (food comas and laughs) to transform and translate my heavy thoughts into nice,  light and fluffy dumplngs 🙂  I hope I can be there for you forever my dear,  and out of all this I am so lucky to have this solid friendship with you!

Friendship’s like this are far, few and priceless!

Lets hope like hell the next few months Cloud 9 comes knocking on my door.

Like where the fuck are you?
