Shivaay Delights…Sharing Super Blogs!

This week I am super excited, meaning I’m more excited than usual lol! I have become an aunt for the second time and saw my little bundle of joy yesterday! You can really forget how small newborn babies are. All other things that seem to matter don’t matter anymore when you’re cuddling this new seedling. Congratulations to my brother and wife. Thank you for another cutie pie!

Now to even more celebration…My Fabulous 4 of the week!

Miss Marzipan…a beautiful and extremely talented cook. She describes herself as “A curious soul + a dash of inspiration, sweetened to taste = the satisfaction of creative DIY!”
“….a sweet-toothed girl (who also loves her veggies!), a grateful mother to a gorgeous toddler and a baby Cupcake (my nickname for her) and a quiet explorer who seeks the creative satisfaction of ‘doing it herself’.

Miss M also not only creates stunning dishes but also touches upon important questions that we would love to understand. A light and balloon feel like blog that just lifts your spirit as soon as you connect! Just brilliant…Enjoy…I know you will!

Pizza Rossa…a simple yet extremely effective and original blog. The cooking and baking is beyond creative. The recipes are absolutely to my liking and out of this world! Rachael has been a vegetarian since her teenage years and now lives in Switzerland. She loves all types of cuisine especially Italian, just like me! There are so many recipes that I wish to post of hers but I will just give you a little feel of what you’re about to enter and see. I know you will return again and again! http://pizzarossa.me/2014/04/21/pina-colada-macarons/

My dear Melissa over @ the enchanting “Glen House”. A blog set up and centered around her stunning home in Ireland. Not only do we get a chance to be invited into her home but we also get to go to her holiday home in Goa, India. Melissa is a gifted baker and cook and I adore her kitchen actually no! I am in love with the whole house! So quaint and picturesque you’ll never want to leave. Thank you Melissa for your ever loving support!

This week I came across an inspiring article by the amazing Heather Blynn! An article about women being their own kind of beautiful. Allowing yourself to be yourself and not comparing to anyone else. Written so well..it truly lifted my spirit that I had to go on to explore the blog even more so, for myself. What I found was a revelation…and has touched my soul! I am yet to read up on more of her enticing posts, come join me! As I start this journey…

Beautiful Butterfly

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough. ~Rabindranath Tagore

When I was a girl I would look out my bedroom window at the caterpillars; I envied them so much. No matter what they were before, no matter what happened to them, they could just hide away and turn into these beautiful creatures that could fly away completely untouched ~ Patch Adams

A Man, A Rake And A Beach

image

When man can make nature more beautiful and stunning than it already is, this has to be shared!  Stunning art works by Andre Amador, knowing that they will not remain and are ever changing with every tide that comes in.

I cannot even describe how I felt when I first saw a glimpse of these mind blowing pictures,  all I know that these are special, very special!

Have a peaceful day and if life gets hectic take your mind to these beaches and explore these visions of sand and the sounds of the sea, they are sure to calm you down

Much love D x
