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.⠀

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.⠀

How to have a relaxing Sunday

Traditionally, Sunday is a day of rest. So that means resting your mind, body and soul before the busy rush of the week. Here how to have a relaxing Sunday.

I’m writing this after just finishing a gruelling training session at the gym, where every muscle in my body is killing me. It feels good for pushing myself, but my goodness I am so sore.

So all I want to do right now is to go back to bed and to relax. Let my poor body recover before I start all over again tomorrow. Hashtag: #poorme.

Anyway as I’m in the mood for relaxing and not doing a lot, I thought I would share with you on how to have a relaxing Sunday. Cause, let be honest. We all need that one day to let ourselves recovered from whatever stresses we were faced with during the week. Whether it an intense gym workout, or being manic at work. I still believe Sunday is traditionally a day of rest. So spend that day relaxing and let your mind, body and soul to recover before going on that treadmills again.

Here are how to have a relaxing Sunday:

Turn off your phone:

(Or at least put it in a drawer.) Spent Sunday without your phone for one day. You will feel better as it gives your eyes a rest from the bright screen. There no need to check on Facebook or Instagram constantly, there really isn’t.

Try not to glare at the screen too much:

This also does relate to my next tips, try to on a Sunday not glare at a screen too much. Give your eyes a rest and stop them getting sore. Spend one day not watching TV, looking at computer screen, and especially not looking at your phone screen.

Listen to white ambient noise/music:

Switch, on Spotify or whatever music streaming service you use – white ambient/noise music. I sometimes listen to the sound of rain and it so peaceful. Just lay back on your sofa (or bed) and take in the noise of the white noise/music.

Do a fun brainless activity:

Something that doesn’t require much brain power. You could paint, write, or even bake some cookies. An activity that will keep you occupied while also relaxes you.

Power Nap:

When I finally had Sunday free to relax on (as previously I would always work on a Sunday!), I would spend the day in bed. I know I’m lucky to have this luxury and can spend the day in bed if I choose. But if you got that one day free and their no one else at home, then go to bed and have a power nap. I always feel more energized after a power nap, what about you?

 

What are your tips on how to have a relaxing Sunday?

    I can’t power nap. I don’t know what it is, but if I sleep for just a brief period I wake up groggy and I am completely off my game. I’m 41 years old and have never been able to do this. Long naps and I can’t sleep at night, so I take walks with my dog :). I definitely love to unplug on Sundays. We do this weekly as well. Absolutely no electronics during meals, including phones. Sunday we try to make it a point to hike and enjoy the outdoors as much as we can. Nature is definitely our relaxation.

    Some ways that I relax include reading the Bible, munching on dark chocolate, and organizing. I did all of these things this weekend. Organizing helps me feel like I have control when uncontrollable things are happening in my life.
