Awkward Pause...



So there you have it.... this is where I've been. Behind the scene, making MRS magic + whilst drinking my weight in GIN! So I beg you not to fret, or coax another worry wrinkle! For when the newly transformed MRS rises like a phoenix, she'll do so with an extra special twinkle. Sit tight, yet stay vigilant. For once we relaunch, this baby's gonna be down right MAGNIFICENT!




Where is MRS LILIEN???



Like a flash of lightning, the MRS has disappeared without a trace! She straight up went MIA as if she rocketed herself into outer space. Perhaps she's in an exotic + remote location - or even juicier... amidst a witness protection relocation?! No no no... that's far too crafted, a tad far flung and just a bit too sci-fi. My comforting guess is she's irresponsibly leisuring off duty in a remote location sans the proper wifi. What ever the case, you KNOW there'll be an epic story to follow. Lets keep our manicured fingers crossed that her fate won't result into a hard pill to swallow. We must, however, dig deep and grasp hold of our resolve. For our beloved MRS wouldn't dare leave us in the lurch, forced to question, agonize + starve. We've reason to believe she's diligently collaborating with the higher powers; the vibrations we're picking up are like that of intergalactic star showers! Secret intelligence aside, one thing remains allegiant and true - nary a pillar of her highly regarded stature would guide us a stew.

I urge you all to keep your eyes peeled and your ears piqued. For every lead reported guides us further away from succumbing to her ladyship's status becoming obsolete. Should you stumble upon a tip of her whereabouts, or even a hearsay of her status - please leave your comments below, and we'll have our dispatcher on duty reach out, her name is Gladys. 

In any case let's keep a strong willed assumption, that MRS LILIEN will rise like a reincarnated phoenix, and not succumb to our own dark thoughts of self destruction.

As mentioned before, Gladys will be your steadfast MRS correspondent - she'll be recording your input, fielding your questions and reporting them directly to our investigative MRS department. Stay tuned in while our search abides - For if we know anything of our MRS, it is that to each occasion, she will always rise.




MRS. Coastal Living

Vintage La Barron Fibrella Pool Loungers (I own one in yellow, you should be jealous!) / The Happiness Planner / Kopari Coconut Oil / Frends Headphones / Tombo PlayColor2 Pens (they are next level + I swear by them, but whatever.) / Olivine Atillier SHE BLONGS THERE Perfume Oil / Sakara Life Beauty Water Cocktail Mix Kit / Karen Walker Beach Towel / THE RODIN LIP BALM RING (best thing ever!)

To anyone who cares or even reads my rants... FORGIVE my absence! I've been doing my fair share of LOUNGING and trying to seek my balance. Isn't that the constant struggle?! A work-from-home, island-hopping mama of 3 whilst movin-n-shakin' is one heck of a juggle. But here's the real deal: finding the balance + your happy is truly what's important. For it is when we slip that everything goes to sh*t + you experience the inevitable COME TO JESUS MOMENT. Lets face it, there are only so many times we can pull the alarm. So it's just best to take "adult" timeouts and forego the longterm harm. When I find myself slipping, overdoing, double dipping + over-sipping I know that's my cue. Like an innocent tap on the shoulder, I stand up, walk away and know just what to do. I simply state to those in earshot (and to those in the know) "I'm off to Lounge..." I gather my goodies + temporarily dismount. I'm a lucky lady to have a support system that allows, supports + encourages my wellbeing. It's probably due to their own innate health, experience, along with seeing + believing. 

I'll tell you what, as a strong, confident woman who struggles with my mental health - finding what works for you + sticking to it is the very best gift you can give yourself! Struggle is real, and depending on where you are at, she can make frequent visits. The best you can do is to be prepared + forgiving with your limits. Know when to throw in your towel and call it a game because when you keep your cool you remain the same sane dame sans the shame!!
