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 Survive Christmas without being Scrooged

Scrooged is a 1988 film where Bill Murray is in a modern-day Christmas Carol. Here how it is possible to survive Christmas without being Scrooged.

Ok, I’m sure you know the tale of the Christmas Carol, where three ghosts visit Scrooge on Christmas Eve. But have you guys ever watched the modern day version of Scrooged, starring Bill Murray?

(I say modern day; the film is now over 30 years old!)

It the classic tale of the Christmas Carol where Scrooge is now a powerful TV executive and the ghosts now take the form of a taxi driver, a drunk fairy and off course the Grim Reaper with a TV screen as a head.

Well, I recently re-watched the film, and it got me thinking on how you and I can survive Christmas without being Scrooged. What I mean by this – how you can survive Christmas without being an old humbug like Scrooge. Someone who is miserable, bossy and selfish.

Here how it is possible to survive Christmas without being Scrooged.

Analyse the Ghost of Christmas Past:

So what made you this raging humbug Scrooge? Well to answer that you will need to look at the ghost of Christmas past.

In the film Scrooged, we saw Scrooge became addicted to TV after family separation. He also turns away the love of his life.

What can we learn about this? Well firstly, don’t find solace with TV, it won’t do you any good. Secondly, it never a good idea to turn away the love of your life.

Moral of the story, turn off the blasted TV set and spend time with people you love. When a problem arises, don’t try to hide away, try to find a solution.

Be present with the ghost of Christmas present:

When we meet Scrooge, he’s a top TV executive and very much wrapped up in his work. Have no time for friends or family; he just doesn’t care about anything apart from his TV work.

What can we learn about this? Well, work is everything in life for a starter. So don’t become too involved and wrapped up in it. There more to life than work.

Moral of the story, live a little. Work is just one tiny aspect of our life; it isn’t everything.

Be wary of the Ghost of Christmas Future:

The ghost of Christmas future is a grim reaper with a TV box as a head. That tells you everything you need to know about this ghost.

We see Scrooge attend his funeral with only one visitor attending, and we also see the love of his life becoming a female version of himself (a scrooge).

Remember with the ghost of Christmas future; this is where you are heading – to do you want to end up like this?

I don’t mean being visited by a grim reaper, I mean end up all lonely and eaten up with inner rage and sadness.

Moral of the story, think where you are now and is this the direction you want to take? It not too late to change the future.

Overall:

Look into your past and analyse why you are the way you are, well you might not be able to change the past, you can start with the present and lead into the future.

Don’t throw away the love of your life or find solace in a TV box set and also think to yourself, do you really want to be Scrooged this Christmas? Look at your past, present and future and this how you can survive Christmas without being Scrooged.
