I know I’m not alone in feeling like this, but I just can’t relax at home whilst wearing my ‘outdoor clothes’. Whenever I walk in my front door I’m straight up those stairs to get changed into my comfy clothes – the jeans are off and the joggers are on! So, imagine my sheer delight when Pyjama Factory said they would like to send me some fresh new togs to relax in. Could this be my dream collab? Quite possibly.
Bladdy hell, it’s Baltic out there isn’t it? This morning began with bundling myself up in my winter coat and scarf and hiding in the car while Ben scraped thick ice off of all the windows (I could help but… y’know… got a bad leg haven’t I…)
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.
