I have to ask because clearly, you’ve got this all figured out. Let’s see…the rack for size 30 A, B and C. Bra colours: pink with black spots, leopard prints, monkey prints, candy stripes. And …

I love my teeny tiny bought from Mango shorts. When I wear them, my male friends ask me whom I’m trying to entice? And my husband thinks they are skanky.

RA 12_PP.JPG

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of life” – Eckhart Tolle. Great spiritual teachers always speak about living in the moment and its importance for the human soul. Most of us know this, to a large extent. We understand it makes sense to live in the now, but it is a particularly hard exercise. Who wouldn’t …
