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.⠀

Book | The Creative Space Journal

Even the most creative and imaginative people on the planet, do suffer from creativity block. It happens to us all, so this why I’m showing you The Creative Space Journal today.

Welcome back to another edition of, ‘what Anna has found in Sainsbury’s this week’. Gosh, I sounded like a game show host. But another week has gone by and another trip to Sainsbury’s where I pick up something up – say a magazine – and show you all. It wouldn’t be a trip to Sainsbury’s if I didn’t come back and found something to show you.

This week I’m showing you The Creative Space journal which I got free when I bought the latest edition of Breathe magazine. This journal is normally retailed for around £9.99 at selected online stores. So as a tip, if you want to get your hand on a free journal then make sure you look for the Breathe magazine at Sainsbury’s.

What is The Creative Space Journal, not another journal filled with empty pages and lame inspirational quotes? Nope, you are wrong.

The Creative Space Journal contains over 100 tasks, projects, ideas, inspirations, creative sparks and nudges. The tasks and illustrations were all created by the artist, Lucy Irving and it was edited and designed by Ammonite Press. The idea for creating the journal came about through brainstorming sessions with the publisher about little creative tips or catalysts that would help people to bring more creativity, art and mischief to their world.

Now I personally am vaguely familiar with Lucy Irving works, but I can’t think where I see her work before. When I saw the name on the journal, I was pleasantly surprised it was an artist that I have vaguely heard off and was kind of familiar with her works. You see, this works well for me as this journal kind of gave me a familiarity and the knowledge that I found something a little special. But nope, my brain cannot remember where I’ve seen her works before.

It was only when I got home (as you can’t really read in the middle of the frozen foods aisle, can you?) that I got to take a closer look and was able to flick through the pages this was no ordinary journal.

The Creative Space journal I would describe it as a grown-up sophisticated version of the Wreck the Journal series. Unlike the Wreck the Journal where it filled with pointless tasks and not really testing the intelligent or the imagination of it readers, The Creative Space Journal does just that. I feel that The Creative Space Journal make you think a little harder and allow you to develop your own creativity.

It does it by using lovely illustrations and by breaking the books into little ‘emotions’ sections which I think is really clever. This is organized to reflect your headspace and what you are filling at that given time. So if you are angry, then go to the angry section or if you sad then go to the sad section. Do you see? And once there you will find lots of little mini tasks that are aimed at your ‘emotions’ and how it will help your creativity.

As you can see from the photos below you can easily just draw all over it. But my advice wouldn’t and perhaps do it in a separate notebook as I feel it would just ruin this book and look messy.

This book, The Creative Space Journal is aimed at anyone who often lacks the creativity or suffers from huge blocks. Trust me, we all been there. If you are struggling with your writing or with your art, then pick up this book and browse through it many mini tasks. You never know, maybe there might a spark.

I think I have said enough of this book now. If I was you, rush to Sainsbury’s and look for the latest edition of the Breathe magazine for a free copy. Or you can pick it up at Urban Outfitter for £9.99.

Will you be picking up The Creative Space journal?
