Guess who's back?!
Long time no speak eh?! Sorry it's been like a month since i posted on here but my health took a couple steps backwards, my Youtube got crazy again and so sadly it became harder and harder to shoot stuff for the old bloggy blog. But I'm back!
This was a bit of a biggie too. I went out onto a pretty busy street and shot this all by myself. Since i've been unwell my boyf has helped me with all of my blog shoots just because I really struggle to carry everything I need and walk too far and yeah its just complicated but today I did it! And I'm actually super proud of myself for it because I reeeealllyyyy didnt want to. lol. Like I did want to but I was scared I wouldnt be able to. But look at me all independent and capable.
Fun fact: I ordered this suit 3 times!!!! Firstly, it came and was way too big. Then it came and the sizes were wrong and 3rd time lucky I finally had my suit of dreams and let me tell you, this baby is versatile! I love wearing the trousers with jumpers or shirts and the jacket with jeans and skirts or all together as a suit with a simple tee like you see here or with a fancier top for evening wear. It's bloody great!
You all know I am all about clothes that make you feel good and this suit makes me feel like a boss, baby!!!
So aside from wanting to have a lil catch up with you all I also wanted to kinda give you a little pep talk on this Monday morning. I don't know about you but I have been feeling super beaten down by social media recently. It just all feels very heavy and for women especially atm, quite terrifying. So, heres something a little more light hearted to break up all of the scary (but neccessary) chats happening on social media rn...
Start your week by wearing something you feel bloody fabulous! Wear that boss bitch suit to work, wear that fabulous dress for drinks, wear your fave jammies that you feel super cute in if you're staying at home. Just whatever makes you feel positive. Put it on that body! And if you have to go to work/school and wear a uniform...put it on when you get home! Even if you put your fave dress on and have a lil dance around your room. Honestly, I do that on the regs.
Secondly, if there is something your heart is longing to do but for whatever reason you have been putting off. Maybe try it today. Or at least take a step towards doing it. I really thought my days of going out shooting blog photos alone were behind me because of my health constraints but I did it. It was hard, but I did it. I'm not trying to be one of those "if i can do this then you can too" bloggers because everyones limitations and situations are different but even if today you work on changing your mindset to being more positive about that thing you wana achieve. Thats something!
And lastly, take some pressure off. You're doing better than you think! You're wonderful. Social media is so amazing but it can get you feeling as though you're behind in some sort of life race. Everyones timelines are different though and a goal reached in 10 years time is still a goal reached. So today, don't be too hard on yourself. Mondays are hard enough. The world is hard enough right now. You're doing great sweetie.
As a parting message to anyone reading. Be nice to the women in your life today. Be nice to fat people today. Be nice to people of colour today. They deserve it, especially when the world/social media is the way it is currently.
Hope you have a wonderful Monday!
Peace & Love xxx
