graduation message from tita dolly


shoreditch house green machine


Blackmill – ohhhh I love that I found you today!! So beautiful I took 20 minutes out of my day to just listen, lie in bed and just… be… Mmmm grateful!! =) / Tita Dolly, yesterday I found a book on Indian Wisdom that my mom gave me when I graduated. Today, I found this book from you. And this time I actually read the whole thing from beginning to end… My favourite? “If you want change, begin it. If you want love, give it. If you want hope, embody it. Start immediately and do it flamboyantly. Once you’ve begun, don’t turn back. Change and growth can be painful and challenging at times, but as Lauren Bond said, ‘Every flower has to go through a lot of dirt.’ Life is about choices, growth and taking chances. It is about pushing through and moving forward. It is about loving courageously and not holding back. It is about finding a brighter, better way. You owe it to yourself and to the world to make the most out of the stuff that’s in you. Bloom into your incredibly, gloriously, brilliantly beautiful self. The world is waiting…” This was the passage on the very first page and is the reason I dropped what I was doing to sit on the floor this afternoon and just read the whole thing. If you are reading this, I wanted you to know that this put a smile on my face and lit a candle in my heart. And I’m glad it took me this long to find this book again, because it couldn’t have come at a better time. Thank you and with love always, I hope you are well… – krissa x / The Owl and Pussycat – cute little pub and great place to start the evening for some #futureplanning. Thanks for the drinks MS! (Even if I did get them wrong!!) / Kat, thanks so much for taking the time out tonight to have a chat. Know you’ve had a long day! But much appreciated! =) / These Green Machine smoothies at Shoreditch House… Oh my YUM! / Tonight, Kat tried to trick me into putting tampons into the fridge. I… yea. I dunno. I’m… grateful? =P yea, nice one FUNNY GUY! x

mo farah the cube

The formula for a perfect, balanced, chilled-out Saturday is pretty simple: Embrace the summer monsoon with this Gange-a-Midi track. / Practice 90 mins of yoga with Jessica, followed by 90 mins of Thai massage basics with Rob and Casi. / Purchase 1 serving of cold, refrigerated Vita Coco and thank god you finally love coconut water and thus, feel normal. / Come up to the Stricklands, home away from home away from home… / Show Gracie some tricks of the trade… I have to say, it is friggin awesome and inspiring seeing a 7-yr-old do half of the Dharma II stuff I would normally teach in class! Crow to headstand included! Honestly, if I’d started this young… … I would’ve probably been taken off the planet by now. / Witnessing Mo Farah beat The Cube… WITH 6 LIVES LEFT! What a legend. Really, truly, made of gold! / Master Sun said: ‘Know the enemy, Know yourself, And victory Is never in doubt, Not in a hundred battles.’ He who knows self But not the enemy Will suffer one defeat For every victory. He who knows Neither self Nor enemy Will fail In every battle. – #futureplanning – comp analysis. Status: complete. Sweet. =)

Grateful for the moment Boris took a break from our meeting to show me this video of Marquese Scott dancing (though I would say ‘dancing’ is such an understatement in this case!) to this Dubstep remix of ‘Pumped up kicks’. There are a few moments in life that have the ability to make your jaw literally drop open. This is one of those occasions. Definitely a must see! (You can close your mouth now, Krissa!) / Proud – one of the coolest venues for a night out I have been to in a long time. I love, love, love the stable setting they’ve retained. Awesome. Grateful. Sweet! / Today, I stole down to Lillywhites to pick up some yoga mats and blocks for my second teaching session tomorrow. Grateful for the discounts!! 😉 =)

Day 201: Animals Talking In All Caps, Rick Astley, Van Damme Dubstep and Boyce Avenue!

boyce avenue

Clearly Comedy Friday. (Edit: I meant Comedy Thursday! You can tell I was tired when I wrote this!) Here are the things I’m grateful for today: 1) Animals Talking in All Caps – cutest, funniest blog ever. Word! / Rick Astley! – Somehow you found it into my life twice today. Just don’t give up do ya? =p Oh, you gotta love that cheese! / Boyce Avenue – acoustic band of the day! Here are some of my fave covers by them: ‘We Found Love’ by Rihanna. Wait til the percussion kicks in at 00:01:04. Oh lord I’m in love! / ‘Someone like you’ by Adele. Nowhere near as good as the original. But this song will always be untouchable, and sacred anyway. I appreciate his efforts all the same. Now to put this track away and in a box at the back of the cupboards for a while! / ‘If I am’ by Nine Days. Just because I haven’t heard this in so long! =) / ‘For the first time’ by The Script. Because this is fresh in mind as I was already listening to it on the way home =) / ‘Fix You’ by Coldplay – Again, never will beat the original. But the magical drop at 00:02:35 got me. What can I say. I’m a sucker for the hooks! / Now when you see a video clip of Van Damme krumping to Dubstep… you have got to be grateful and appreciative for witnessing that moment. Great, now I’m all inspired for the weekend! =)

Day 197: Jakwob, Jak dub, Reggae wub, Bob wub, Emo wub, Jo dub, Step wub, Wub wub… DJ Fresh, LIVE!

Jakwob, Jak dub, Reggae wub, Bob wub, Emo wub, Jo dub, Step wub, Wub wub… So many variations of dubstep inspired by tonight’s acts at the Garage. But ultimately one conclusion: I ❤ (wub) dub. / So grateful for HMV hosting Next Big Thing tonight. Seeing DJ Fresh LIVE was so much fun. And probably unbeknownst to the company around me, more meaningful than I let on. You see, Louder was the song I blogged about a good 6 months ago. This song got me out of bed and strapping on my running shoes to, quite literally, run my heart out in DB. To hear this and Hypercaine LIVE, 6 months on… and to hear Louder played acoustically so you could actually pay attention to the lyrics… Well, it was perfect in every way =) Faster. Louder. Stronger. Better. Thankful. Grateful. Appreciative. x / Happy Birthday Dom Dom! / Anna, Bryony – awesome class as always. Actually, probably more fun… and funnier than usual today. =) x
