Last week I was heartbroken and weary and stressed to the max.
What a week it was. The last few weeks to be honest.
But this week here… this week is different!!
This week I’m different!
This week I’m excited!
This week I’m feeling energised and free!
So this is the week..this week I’m moving forward!
♥ Being a single mum isn’t easy, but I refuse to let it get me down. It won’t always be easy, but it certainly won’t always be difficult either. All my worries and fears I need to let go of. Starting NOW. Life is too short to be stressed and unhappy. I have a beautiful daughter and we have a bright future ahead. She reminds me of that on a daily basis.♥
Starting this week I will take it day by day and live the life I love.
I will tell myself every day that I am beautifully and wonderfully made.
This week here… this week is the start of greater things to come.
So, as I glance at my calendar, I mentally take note, and maybe freak out just a teensy bit at the realization that Cup Match is next fattin week! Time surely waits for no man. One of the biggest holidays in Bermuda is almost here.
Cup Match aka Emancipation Day and Somers’ Day is July 28th and 29th this year. It’s two glorious days of cricket, beaching, good food and of course music, rum and let’s not forget a lil Crown n Anchor action happening. Here’s something useful to note, Cup Match is always on a Thursday and Friday. That’s a nice long weekend for you. You can’t go wrong. If you want to visit, just fly in the Wednesday evening and fly out on the Monday. Bang!
Now, I normally attend both days and I’m also one of those people (It’s a lot of us. I’m just sayin…) that like to get something new for the second day. Now, I only went back to work in May and I now have my daughter, so clearly I’m on that mommy budget or my #SaveAndSlay budget as I like to call it. Just because I have to watch my coins though doesn’t mean I can’t slay it up a bit. I also missed the last 2 Cup Matches as I was in London, England so you know I’m trying to do it up just a bit.
So all that being said, I’ve decided for Day 1, I won’t be ordering anything online. I will be buying my outfit from either the thrift stores and/or tourist shops. They have some nice things in the tourist shops. Don’t sleep on them, real talk. I’ll be going to the Barn of course and I’ll probably stop by Orange Bay and the Upstairs Closet. I had popped into Flying Colours and Davison’s on my lunch break the other day and listen…. Davison’s will definitely be seeing me from time to time.
Now… As for Day 2…. You’re going to have to wait and see! I actually gave a sneak peek on my Snapchat the other day, so follow me on there – Milahstarr. Again, I won’t be ordering anything online, so make sure you follow me on social media to see what I come up with!! I’m really excited about this actually and will do a quick reveal early on the second day.
