Being at home has it pros and cons.
Pro: I'm now my own boss. Sweet.
Con: Hmm I don't pay myself very much. Ok it's zero at the moment so that's not so great.
Pro: I get to dress comfy everyday, because my commute to the office is only next door.
Con: Today I actually started my day still in my PJs. Don't want to make this a habit so I only checked a couple of quick emails and then went to get dressed.
Pros: I get to spend more time with my pups.
Con: My co-workers (aka pups) can be pains in the you know what. Always wanting to play when I need to work, but they do up my staff at Effortless Style Interiors to 3!
Pro: I can come and go as I like. If I want I can go get some fresh air, run errands, shop etc
Con: I'm trying to keep my work the schedule the same and stay in my office 9-5, which means I don't really take advantage of coming and going as I please and I'm never done at 5. I had been feeling a bit uninspired this week with my lack of communications with the outside world, but that changed yesterday.
I took advantage of my latest pro and decided to take a break yesterday and went off with my MIL for a spa appointment and lunch date. Don't worry I wasn't out spending lots of $$$$. My MIL was able to purchases these packages from promo company smart circle She only paid 39.99 per card that came with 4 spa treatments! What a treat. I went in for a massage and she got a facial. She got us each our own card so I still get to treat myself to 3 additional services!
After the spa we headed a couple of doors down were we had lunch at, Besito The food was delish, but what stopped me in my tracks and totally inspired me was the artwork that filled the restaurant.
There were amazing prints of photographs by Roberto Dutesco(His brother owns the restaurant). The pictures were part of a series he shot called, The Wild Horses of Sable Island.
Here is a peek at what I saw:
Here are some shots of his works hung up:
All of the above images are from Dutesco Art
In the past I had never really been bitten by the equestrian kick, but lately as I've been studying design more I've really started to love it. I knew I was smitten when Michelle posted about her latest endeavour with photographer, Patrick Cline called Lonny.
Here are two of my favorites from Lonny:
What's with the Long Face
Ah they are all so beautiful! Hopefully one day soon I'll be able to have an excuse to purchase a print for either myself or a client.
It was nice to get outdoors and explore. I need to remind myself to take some productive breaks and not go veg in front of the TV, but go out and experience things.
