This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀
This butterfly picture was at London Zoo. ⠀

This Insane Summer Heat

The summer heat has been in full force this week. I’m not here to complain about it – just to say that it has been insanely hot!

Well, ok maybe I am going to complain about it – just a little. Cause it has been freakin’ hot! And from reading on Twitter, Facebook and various blogs, it seems other people from across the globe has been suffering with the heat – so it not just us UK folks.

But yeah people – this summer heat. The summer sun came out in full force and my god what a powerful force it is.  I keep feeling like there no escaping this summer heat, it feels like an invisible smoke where it covered every nook and cranny, every corner and the air. The heated air filled up your lunges and making you feel you cannot breathe, almost (not quite don’t want to over dramatic!) suffocating.

I have to be honest here and say that I was completely unprepared for it. At the weekend it was my niece birthday and we all went to Chessington World of adventure, it’s a theme park just outside of London. A perfect place for kids. Before hand as we were making arrangements we were told it was going to be hot – but naively I thought, c’mon it can’t be that hot.

OH MY GOD! Was I wrong and was a complete fool – yeah feel free to call me the fool. Smack me on the head and tell me I’m an idiot. However, I did very cleverly put on my playsuit so my attire was perfect for the hot weather – but my skin wasn’t. I was burnt from head to toe and came very close to having sun poisoning…yeah that was fun.

I know you’re going to tell me, that will teach you and I was a complete fool. But until recently, well growing up – the sun never affected my skin. During a hot day when I was younger I never got burnt. Weird right? I always attributed it to me drinking so much water that the sun would just bounced off my skin.

Because of that I never really had to worry too much of sun cream. Well that all changed now, I’m older and my skin isn’t what It used to be folks, so yeah I will be need sun cream for now own.

What also I think made it worse, was that I was at the theme park all day long – near enough 8 hours outside in the sun. Ouch.

I’m ok, my shoulder is sore and I’m not the only one who got burnt – Richard got burnt as well.

So if there one thing you can take away from reading this, protect your skin at all cost!

Since the weekend I have been hibernating in an air condition Costa with a refreshing frappe. My brain has also seemed to have died in this heat, so if you have messaged, emailed me or gave me a high five – sorry I will get back to you when I can breathe and has cooled down.

Oh before I go, I must tell you one more unusual ways to cool down in this summer heat. This is a good tip I got from my mum -so mum if you are reading this – cheers.

Get a bowl and fill it up with ice, then simple put it in front of the fan. And if done correctly, the fan should be blowing around cool air.

Such a simple thing to do. It has been working a treat for me.

Anyway, how have you been coping in the summer heat?

What do you think?

    Ahah yeah I feel you. It’s crazy hot here too. I’m going insane as I sleep very little when temperatures are so high. Right about now I’m close to walking zombie mode.

    Ugh…I absolutely hate the sun. I have always burnt easily and now my kids do and we live in Florida, the “Sunshine State”. Our 16 year old has vitiligo so we try to avoid the sun for her and sunscreen is a MUST for all of us. I’ve had sun poisoning before and my face swelled up…not fun!

    This past weekend we rented a beach house and no matter how strict I was about sunscreen, the 10 & 12 year old got their first really bad sunburn, blisters and all. I feel so horrible but we kept applying sunscreen.

    You NEED sunscreen, not just for preventing sunburn but for blocking out the bad rays that lead to cancer. I have too many close people to me battling with skin cancer here in Florida.

    Thanks for your suggestions with ways to cope with the summer heat. Will you take it personally if I say I won’t be following your advice? Right now, here in South Africa, we could do with just a little of that summer heat you’re talking about. It’s frikkin freezing today! Interview with a Protagonist and his author.

    It’s even hot in the UK? Wow. The west coast of the U.S. is going through a drastic heat wave right now. It’s so hot that planes can only fly in the early morning or late evening. They’re not putting people or planes out on the tarmac in the afternoon heat. It’s unbearable.

    I hate it! I also live in London and yesterday my car read it was 38 that is insane, I live in a flat and it feels like a sauna 🙁 thankfully today is a fair bit cooler than yesterday and I see its going to cool off over the weekend too….horray! A few of my friends say they are loving the heat I only wish I could too as we all know it will cool down and then boil again…
    Im am going to try the ice in front of the fan I read about that before.
    Im seriously thinking of saving to have air con installed as we seem to be getting the same weather now as Spain, Greece etc and they all have air con in apartments.
