Something to brighten up your day

"What I do is very individual. This is mine and I enjoy it, so nobody else has to like it. As long as when I look in the mirror, ah! This is me."

- Ilona Rocye Smithkin

She's beautiful, wise and full of youth and color.

At 90 years old, Illona is proving to the world the no matter what your age, your world can be full of color.
"I've just come into my own quite late. I'm a late bloomer. You have no idea how insecure I was... I just didn't believe in myself and now I know who I am." Ilona Royce Smithkin

She's making the most out everything, realising that in life - it's only a matter of time.

Spending her days dancing, singing and surrounding herself with color, Ilona is someone we should all be taking note of.

She has such a passion and love for life that I wish more people could embrace.

Make it your mission this weekend to add a bit of color and positivity into your life :)


  1. I just wanted to say that I think it's great that she has a positive outlook on life - I always try to do the same. I hope that when i'm her age i'm as happy and positive as she is. I'm a firm believer in making the most of life because you never know what can happen.

    I have a small confession, I used to be a goth. A lot of my wardrobe is still dominated by black but there's something about colour which a lot of people overlook. It really does have an effect on your mood and so these days I try and always have something colourful on. Whether it's my many colourful beaded bracelets, bright coloured nails or a pretty patterned scarf, it all helps brighten my day even if i'm feeling a bit down.

    Lovely post, i'll have to watch the video later. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Love this!
    Thanks for such a cheerful and inspiring post :)
