My Beautiful World

Colour inspiration

Just because I post pretty pictures, doesn’t mean that my life is perfect.


My appproach to my life is a choice. I choose to see the beauty in everything. It doesn’t make me lucky and it isn’t always perfect, but it sure beats wallowing in the negativity that we are purposefully exposed to. The more pretty pictures I post, the more people tell me how lucky I am that my life seems so perfect. There’s no such thing as the perfect life, but there’s definitely a thing called the perfect choice.


How do you keep the masses from questioning your dodgy actions? 

You keep them stupid, hungry, cold and in debilitating debt. That way they will just be trying to survive, they will never have time or capacity to question or see the beauty in anything.

How do you not become one of those masses? 

You make a very conscious choice to choose a different life. You enlighten yourself any way you can. Don’t assume that you have to pay for everything, you don’t, you live in the smartest world, with access to things called Google and YouTube, that can teach you anything you want to know, for free. Don’t tell me it’s not free because you need data, there’s free wi-fi, you may just have to choose to look a little harder for it. 


How do you shift your thinking from shame poor me to Yay me?

You stop listening to fake negative news, that’s a logical choice. You choose to search out the beauty that we are surrounded by, and hardly ever see, because you’re so busy obsessing about situations you cannot ever change. You hold a thing in your hand every single day that enables you to capture so much beauty. Go to the camera in your phone, focus on something beautiful and capture it, and then share it and make somebody happy, because you made a choice to share beauty and not ugly! You don’t have to be a photographer, you just have to be committed to seeing the beauty that is everywhere, and that has been gifted to us for free. You’re surrounded by it, you just have to start seeing it.


And when you start experiencing the feeling of satisfaction, because you put something beautiful out into the world, then you will understand the difference between being lucky and being the navigator of your own destiny.
It’s always a choice 💜

A photographer I’m not, but a lover of beautiful things I definitely am.

I signed up to do an iPhone photography course, to learn how to get the maximum benefit out of my iPhone 6S+. To say I’m blown away by what what I’ve learnt in the last two months, would really be an understatement, but more importantly I wanted to share the incredible outlet it’s given me.

Overseeing the running of Hayley Joy production where we manufacture all the various collections for Hayley Joy retail, and overseeing the running of Hayley Joy retail is extremely demanding. I’m the Boss, so you all know what that means, long hours and loads of pressure.
Since I started taking photos of anything that moves and everything that is pretty, I cannot believe the difference it’s made to my temperament. I have discovered macro photography which requires me to zoom in on a subject and really, really concentrate.

My big problem is, that whatever I do, my mind finds a way to go back to work, as there is always such exciting stuff going on, but I also know that I have to have a break, and discovering the wonders of photography on my phone, has given me a diversion that is inspiring me on new levels, and that is in turn, calming me down and unleashing wonderful new creativity. It’s also getting me outside more, and away from all my devices, besides my phone of course, but that is now being used primarily for taking beautiful photos.

I’m always on the hunt for great subject matter for my mood and style boards. I’m spending lots of time in my own garden and I am continuously blown away by the colours in nature. I have been watch a group of Aloes that have begun flowering, and I am in awe of their beauty. I have fallen in love with Macro photography and especially taking close up photos of Bees, so I share these photos of our very special food providers, and their food, with love.

❤️ Hayley
