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.⠀

Why I’m Scared For The Future

Posted on

While some like to look ahead and imagine what the future will be like. Me, on the other hand, is terrified! Why I’m scared for the future.

It a common theme in this household, the future. While some like to talk about the weather, or perhaps kittens and bunnies. No, we like to talk about the future, and when I say we – really I mean he as in my husband like to talk about the future. And when we do talk about the future, it not about our future. But the future in general. Which I don’t know about you, but it a scary thought.

Take for instance, that one afternoon we went to Kenwood House. There we were in a big open beautiful garden, where the weather was sunny and warm and we could sit in a pretty little café having tea and a cookie.

‘Did you know, that Scientist can now put a human brain into a robot, this is the start of AI’, was the topic of conversation. Before I could go, that nice – my husband elaborated and started really talking into the details. All I could do was bite into my cookie and nodded along pretending I was interested.

The conversation didn’t stop there. Oh no. He went on and on and on all the research papers he read online on AI technology, the future of VR and how one day in the future we would flying car.

We decided to lay on the grass and just basically chill out for the afternoon in the gardens. It didn’t stop his enthusiasm for futuristic plans and how in 20 years’ time the world will look completely different.

He stopped and noticed I was rather engrossed with my phone, ‘aren’t you are excited about the future,’ he asked rather perplex on why I wasn’t really getting into the heat of the debate.

‘Honestly, the future scares me.’ There I said it – it was out in the open. ‘why?’ he asked.

Maybe it because I grew up watching and reading science-fiction. The future is always painted as a dire dystopia, where humans are either slave or on the brink of extinction.

Well, it true isn’t it? That is often the scenario that is shown to us of the future.

Take the Terminator, for example, Judgment Day and nuclear war break out. Then there is V-for Vendetta with a totalitarian government. Also what about Wars of the World and alien tries to kill us all.

Doesn’t that just terrify you?

Well, it does scare me. It the unknown. Not knowing what is happening tomorrow. We can pretty much plot and plan the future – but really we can’t see what is ahead.

Ok sure, we’re brought up to look at the near future and to worry about our own future. But I can’t help but shake the feeling, that planning my future is all well and good; but what if there no world to live in where I can put those plan into action.

As you get older, you worry about money and get told to have a mortgage, live the perfect mundane boring life. Think about life insurance, getting a car and perhaps have children.

I can’t seem to do that as I have to know what it coming. Are we about to be zapped by an alien, will there be a nuclear war?

What is going to happen to you – me and every one of us? Will we all be turned into AI? Will the world that we know it – will still exist in 50-100 years’ time?

My husband turned to me and said very sweetly, ‘whatever happens we still will be together, just maybe as artificial clone’. In the time he answered, I gave him a friendly prod in the rib and laughed at him.

So yes folks, that is why I’m scared for the future. I imagine a doomsday scenario.

If you click here, then this handy calculator lets you know how much your house is worth so you can stay a step ahead of the crowd and plan your future accordingly. Where important financial asset such as your home mortgage, car repayments and even your cat insurance is always in good hand

A future of no doomsday scenario and no unexpected surprise. A future where everything from your cat to your home is planned and thoughts out in a way you have always dreamed off.

Tell me, how do you feel about the future?
