I look different now. The person I see in the mirror, looking back at me with curious eyes, isn’t the same person I’ve seen for the majority of my life. It’s still her inside, but to the eye she’s changed. She’s bigger, with a curve to her stomach, dimples in her arms, lines on her thighs, and a wobble where before she was smooth and sculpted. I look different now.
It’s been pretty bloomin’ humid out there recently hasn’t it? When our British summer time decides to bless us with its presence, it usually does so with a heavy helping of mugginess too, meaning the entire population of the country becomes slightly sticky to the touch, wandering around helplessly seeking even the slightest breeze. Is it just me or does anyone else find the heat here much more stifling than abroad?
“Ethical” – it’s the buzz word of the moment, isn’t it? In the past few years you’ll have been hard pushed to miss the awakening of society as a whole as we realise we have been living without care for too long, impacting both this planet of ours and those who live upon it. And with fast fashion being churned out on our High Streets, it makes a pleasant change to find a brand who are working hard to level the playing field and make a difference – step in Sacet, offering high quality jewellery with a conscience.
In just a few weeks time I will be heading off on my holidays and I’ll be honest with you, I CANNOT WAIT. Although I’m not allowed to sit in the sun anymore (thanks Cancer!) I can’t wait to be in the warmth, listening to the weird cricket-insect things buzzing away in the trees, and feeling myself completely, well and truly, relax. View Post
Shoes have always been a weakness of mine. The old version of me would spend inordinate amounts of money on footwear that – in some cases, ashamedly – I only wore once or twice. I was reckless with money (hence getting into crippling debt) but, my word, did my feet look good when I hit the town!
