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.⠀

Viking Shakespeare Evening

Hear Ye, Hear Ye, once an evening upon where words and sonnets were played. A Viking Shakespeare Evening, a fair maiden attended.

Ok, I can’t do poetry to save my life. But one evening in the week I went along to a Viking Shakespeare evening, an event that promised to be filled with sonnets and calligraphy; there was also some songs.

Now I have to admit that I use to be a Shakespeare geek, especially when I was younger. Romeo & Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream were something I would read all the time. I would often visit the Globe Theatre to watch a Shakespeare play and shamelessly I have seen Shakespeare in love more time then I should admit. But yes, while girls growing up was swooning over 90210, I was swooning over Romeo & Juliet. And Yes, it was due to Leonardo DiCaprio.

As I was saying, I went along to an evening that was catered to all things Shakespeare. We were served canapés, and we were taught calligraphy and also how to write a sonnet. The event was at the Bull & Gate in Kentish Town, a pub that has a cosy charm about it.

I have always wanted to learn calligraphy as I love the art-form. It makes handwriting looks so elegant, and I feel handwriting itself is kind of a lost art. I don’t know about you, but I can’t remember I have written a handwritten letter using actual ink.

Anyway, we had a calligrapher who was on hands to help us, mater, the skills. Well, some of the other people at the event were able to master calligraphy – me not so much. My handwriting leaves a lot to be desired.

I think for me I’m going have to watch a few YouTube videos and spend a good hour each week practicing before I can show off my calligraphy skills.

We also spent the evening writing a sonnet. If you are not sure what sonnet are, well it a form of poetry where words are to rhyme, and each line needs to be five words. There more to it – but that’s the basic of it.

I was never a big fan of poetry writing, but I did enjoy learning more on sonnet and how it an easy skill to pick up on. I don’t think I will be a world-famous poetry writer anytime soon those.

Overall it was an enjoyable evening that paid tribute to Shakespeare. The only problem was, I was dead-beat, and I was there in body, but my spirit was somewhere else.  I spent the day running all over London like a headless chicken, so I was a little tired by the evening, but I did have a fun time. It satisfied the Shakespeare geekiness in me.
