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. ⠀

When your husband surprised you with a big bouquet of flowers and your first thoughts is - quick let me put on a pretty dress and take a photo of me holding it!⠀
(The only problem with that - you look tired on photos hence me hiding behind this bouquet.)⠀

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. ⠀

Isn’t it time to turn down the Heat?

We all want to see our name in lights, the glamour and the glitter. Fame and fortune is the name of this drug.
I have a daily ritual that I follow every single morning without fail. My alarm radio turns on as I listen out for the show business news. Then as I’m eating my cereal I switch on to the news channel and watch if any headlines show business takes my interest. Logging on to my Hotmail I check through my e-mails and see if I received my daily gossip newsletters. While checking my e-mails I also look at my favorite celebrity blog, On No They Didn’t, I won’t move until I’ve read every post and have caught up to the last time I read it.

Before I’ve even left the house I have been subjected to every media outlets from radio, television and the Internet. It’s like a drug to me, I have to know the ins and outs in the world of celebrity. I should also mention I have celebrity worship syndrome.
I worship these celebrity gods. I want to read about them in Heat magazine, watch their reality show and even want to smell like them by buying their products.
Katie Price is a perfect example in capturing this market and helping fuel the fire. Not a day goes by and we won’t be reading a new article about her, she’s always promoting some new products whether it be a new perfume, horse riding kit or a new book (which is all ghost written of course). There isn’t a week where Katie Price isn’t airing her dirty laundry to the world.
It reminds me when I was younger and I was in the playground shouting “look at me, look at me”, Of course nobody did. The same principal applies here with these celebrities, instead of shouting in a playground, they’re shouting out onto the world stage.
Through modern technology we don’t have to step outside, everything we need is inside – social networks, 24 hours news channels, not to forget smart phone apps. With all this wonderful technology, we may never speak to an actual real person. Through evolution we human beings always spoke face to face, now it only in the last 100 years we don’t have to face anyone. I speak to all my friends via Facebook for example. This could be why I have social anxiety. It also shows what a dangerous medium this could be and how it is re-wiring our brain, making us more subjective to any form of news. This can lead into a dangerous obsession and we start believing these smiling celebrities can see us through our television screen. Fame is a drug that should be regulated, it’s an aspiration drug that’s fed into our subconscious.
A recent study asked schoolchildren from around the world what do they want to be when they grow up? Of course they all want to be rich and famous.
Of course the simple solution would be to turn off the television, disconnect from the Internet and take up a new hobby. We all need to disconnect ourselves and take a blind eye. It’s time to reconnect to reality before it late. Isn’t it time we start turning down the Heat a little?

    What an interesting read! I am luckily one of those who doesn’t care what the celebrities are doing, and rarely watch the showbiz news/pages. I would rather have an extra 30 mins in bed in the morning 🙂 x

    A really different take to the blog posts I usually read! I have to admit I really couldn’t care less about celeb gossip and what they are up to. Most ‘celebs’ nowadays aren’t famous for anything and that really gets on my nerves!

    Fantastic read, I don’t care too much for celebrities and what they are up to, just enjoy them as who they are in the movie x

    I am on my phone a lot but not to read up about celebrities. I think the Internet has changed the way we live etc as information is so readily available for all aspects of our lives. It’s a generational thing that will only keep getting bigger x

  • Oh no I just wrote a big comment but it didn’t post 🙁 I don’t follow gossip or celebrities but I do use my phone way to much! I really need to find a outdoorsy hobby

    Yes, I agree! Most celebrity gossip is just blah, blah, blah. There’s nothing to learn from it. It’s like junk food for the brain!

    I choose celebrity news than any other war and violence news nowadays, not that I’m into any celebrities. We can’t really escape from the technology, it’s part of our modern life, I guess.

    I do agree that we need to disconnect from the internet once in a while as it is addicting. I usually check my phone for emails and social media updates. I am more inclined to read about the news to keep me up to date than those celebrity gossips. Great post and I will definitely check the video.

    This is a really inspiring and beautiful post! I absolutely believe in the importance of disconnecting from technology as real face to face interactions are so wonderfully engaging, educational, and empowering. The documentary looks amazing too. Thanks for sharing!

    You are so right! We have to disconnect from media sometimes. But when we reconnect again, we feel even more overwhelmed than usual

    We all need a little break from social media sometimes. The braver ones completely deactivate and feel more free afterwards. I wish I could do that but I use social media for my work.
