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 Sunday is a day of rest for me

I love spending that one day a week doing nothing and relaxing. This is why Sunday is a day of rest for me.

Can you blame me? Sunday traditionally has always been known as a day of rest. The one day where you do nothing and just relax.

Growing up I remember Sunday for me was always ‘roast dinner’ day, the whole house would smell of the roast dinner being cooked. I would sit at the kitchen breakfast bar in the morning helping my mum peeled the potatoes and stirring the Yorkshire pudding butter mixtures. Then I would just watch my mum cooking it all and taking in all the delicious aroma.

After the roast dinner being cooked and eaten, I would be nagged to do my homework so I would do that while watching cartoons.

That was my Sunday while growing up. As I got older I soon moved my day of relaxing to Monday as I then started working on Sunday. I hated working Sunday but the incentive of Sunday premium pay was too good to turn down.

As soon as I left that job and went self-employed, it felt so good to have my Sunday free again. I might not now wake up with the smell of roast dinner, but that doesn’t really matter so much as I subsequently now get roast dinner every other weekend when I visit my parents.

I suppose I could always do my own roast dinner, but I tend to do baking instead or stick to oven foods that required no effort what so ever. Like I said, Sunday is a day of rest for me.

Sunday is also when I get the place to myself, Richard is usually out working so it a day of peace for me. So I spend the day in my pjammy and settle down to watch something on Netflix or Amazon Prime. I try to get away from the computer (but sometimes the pull is too strong!), unchained myself from the desk. I also like to read. I also often would visit my parents and even when I’m there, I just tend to chill out and listen to some music.

This is why Sunday is a day of rest for me, the chance to chill out and get myself ready for the week. I’m not a religious person but growing up I would hear how God made the 7th day of the week a day of relaxing. Somehow I think many people seem to have forgotten that notion and still run around like a headless chicken. There’s no need to, slow down and chill out. Spend that one day to look after yourself.

So how do you spend your Sunday? Are you still rushing around or spending the day taking it easy?

    I like a long lie on a Sunday. I sometimes go to my allotment, have a pamper day, read books or catch up on telly (oh and am always online!) x

    I used to make a Sunday a day of rest but then I had children… and it got hard to truly rest! We are working on it though. I love your wonderful memory of your mom cooking a roast on Sunday – I hope to start a tradition like that so my children will have similar wonderful memories 😉

    It’s Sunday afternoon. We talked, laughed and dined together with our families. I spent the day with my best friend. Now I’m preparing for a home church, and in the evening I’ll sneak in beside my husband and look at some nice movie together. Sunday is my day for dear people and relaxation.

    It’s so important to take a day off to relax and recharge. Being a Girl Boss is hard work!

    Taking time to rest and relax is so important. Our schedules are so stuffed and full to the brim. Making the conscience effort to rest is key to being successful in other areas of life.

    Sunday is usually a day which I spend with the family. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Similarly working all 7 days a week and not relaxing would make you feel fatigued. besides, you need to give your family some quality time to enjoy
