Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

I must admit that I...

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

If I were to describe...

* Stare at the computer screen completely blank, not sure what write*. Pretty summed up my week really - a blank space. Yup got writer block. ⠀

10 Things That Made Me Blissfully Happy This Week

Posted on

I was thinking about making a list while doing my early morning swim and it was kind of fun thinking about what made me smile this week. So let me share with you 10 things that made me blissfully happy this week.

Taking up Swimming again

Oh my god, the pure bliss of taking up swimming. I haven’t been swimming for about 4 years now, and it feels so good to be in the water again. Ok, I will admit I’m not a water baby or anything, and I still swim with a float. But just having the luxury of floating around in water is just heaven. Now I’m not the most confident swimmer, and yes, I still use a float, and I will freak out if my feet can’t touch the bottom of the pool – but I don’t let all those things stop me.

This freaky warm February weather

The last week of February, the weather turned up a notch, and it felt more like May than February. It was nice, but I found it so freaky weird. I suddenly found myself stumbling around trying to find spring clothes to wear.

Losing 3LBS of weight

Oh yeah! Discovering that I lost 3lbs of weight in one week is a real fist-pumping moment. All your hard work from the week is paying off and that less weight you need to worry about. Slowly but steady I’m getting there. Before you know it, I will be supermodel ready. Ha yeah right.

Starting a secret SW diary gram

Well, it no longer a secret I suppose. But I have set up a Slimming World diary Instagram to help me with my weight loss progress. However, it is private, and I’m not letting people in. But if I’m honest, it just filled with slimming world foods and tips.

Unplugging the block in my brain

I had writer block – along with blogger block, and for weeks it felt like there was a massive plug in my brain. I would stare at the computer screen and stare at it blankly waiting for something to come in my mind – and usually nope nothing. So I had no idea why I had this block, but hopefully, it is now unplugged, and I can carry on as usual.

Visiting HMS Belfast along London Bridge

I have walked past HMS Belfast a hundred time, but never realise that I could go on board and visit it. This is an old WWII cruiser that was used by the royal navy. It was interesting to walk around, and you realise how cramp it must have been onboard during wartime. So yeah, if you are looking for new things to see in London – then I recommend HMS Belfast.

Walking along the Southbank

As it was a beautiful day and we have freaky February weather, we decided to walk from London Bridge to Waterloo – which is a longer walk than it looks on the map let me tell you. But we discovered new things that we never noticed before. If you want a good walk, then walk along the Southbank.

Happy we out of winter and it now spring

Despite the freaky weather, I am now glad that winter is over and spring is here. Warmer weather and finally a chance to do more things outside. We both said that we want to visit and go out to more places this year.

Watching Fawlty Tower

So freaking funny. This never fails to put a smile on my face. You know the jokes so well, yet it still makes you laugh. A pure brilliant comedy that never gets old.  Manuel.

Baking brownie

I know this isn’t going to help me with my weight loss – but how could I not bake some brownie. Yeah, I used one of those ready-made easy baking kits, but it does save time and washing up.

Those were the 10 things that made me blissfully happy this week. What things made you happy in the past week?
