NOW PLAYING:  Everybody wants to rule the world - Lorde

I was perusing the pages of Inside Out magazine recently when a singular line caught my immediate attention.


August is a month for getting things done.


It really got me thinking. All those plans and ideas that I'd spent many a late night tirelessly penning have been cast aside, abandoned and inert while awaiting my summons. And I've been lingering for what exactly? Now is the time to seize the moment. Because the thing is if you don't do it now then when will you? So with that apologies in advance as I attempt to keep to my word and begin the process of making some huge changes around here. And I'm not just hinting at layouts and design, (yes, yawn again) I'm talking about content and expanding its reaches. Please be patient with me. I'll continue to entertain you faithfully and endeavour to visit your blogs sporadically. Much like I have been these past few weeks anyway. I'll still be around on other social media sites like Instagram: @soniademacedo and Facebook so follow along (if you haven't already) to keep up with my madness. I'm curious though, after reading this yourself are there any plans you made that are still idle or forgotten? Are you going to make August your b*** and get s*** done?

Carpe that f***ing diem.

  6. Yeah, I was going to take my diary out and write down my goals and priorities for the next months. But sometimes you can't control everything. Sometimes it's enough to put the intention out and let the universe take care of the rest.

  8. You are so right - "if we don't do it now, when will
    we?", I also try to change some things at the moment
    and it feels good when you finally get something done. :)

  15. Hi Sonia! You have all my understanding, I think that line works not only in August but in every single momemt we realized it. And you know, you just inspire me. I know whatever you are going to do or reinvent here, will be a success. Hugs Sonia! xo

  16. Yet another gorgeous post full of interesting thoughts my dear! It's so true that we can get caught up in a fog of inactivity during the summer months. We start off in June or July with all of these ambitious plans and goals (I'm going to get this license or finish that book, etc) but after June and July have flown by, we look at August realizing that we have gotten nearly nothing of consequence done! I'm always quite disappointed with myself when that happens, it seems that the adage that loosely says that only busy people get things done is quite true-- you need to be in the right mindset to make time for the things that you need to get done! I will justify my lack of goal-achieving with the fact that I'm presently traveling in Asia. Right now I just finished printing out my tickets for my trip to Hong Kong tomorrow! At least I can check that city off my travel list!

    1. Blah it's so true, those half yearly blues of realising we'd accomplished nothing we originally set out to do. And I suppose we need to be reminded of this from time to time. I'm glad you can mark off a huge part of your own goals for the year though, there's is still much time remaining to complete more still xx

  22. Haha that's a beautiful collage, but I can't really agree with the words unfortunately, even though I'd really like to... In Italy August is a month of endless torture when stores and offices close, people stop answering their phones and emails and nothing, I repeat NOTHING ever gets done... If you mention anything business-related to anyone, all you get is "Let's talk about it in September". Drives me crazy...

    1. Oh no! I've noticed over here when buying furniture they keep telling me anything coming in from Italy has an even longer lead time for delivery since August everything is shut. Can't imagine what it must feel like to live there! xx

  23. I love this post! I love how you're not afraid to tell it exactly how it is. You just motivated me to get things done! I've been becoming a bit complacent lately because I'm "tired" or "lazy" but now I'm excited to achieve my dreams again. Thank you! And yes, CARPE THAT FUCKING DIEM.

  33. Is August a month for getting things done? Hmm... I'd better find more time to get all these clutter in my mind done. I'm really thrilled at what you have in store for us. I've already like your blog for its whiteness, freshness and layout that looks so clean and easy on the eyes. Adore your beautiful photos whether it they are painstakingly selected by you off somewhere else or whether they are taken and edited by you. Everything falls in place so beautifully that I can't imagine what new surprises you have for us.

  34. Such an inspiring post! Looking so forward to see what you have up your sleeve and what you come up with - I'm sure that whatever it is, you'll do it amazingly. Your posts have never ever disappointed me in the past. They always evoke my emotions and inspire me beyond what I can ever even tell you!! I really do hope one day we meet - you seem like such an amazing soul!! A friend I'd love to have in life.

  50. Now that you asked, I'm still working on the website I'm going to launch next year. In there, I'm planning to change the way we do blogging and especially story telling. There are still a lot of things to be done and it's sort of stressing me sometimes but I hope everything will work out. Anyway, if you're curious (and I really like your writing style) you can email me for details alyssa[at]stylevanity[dot]com
