Hello, are you still here?

..if you are you deserve a post Christmas Chocolate coin! And a thank you, AND a well deserved pat on the back from me! 

But seriously, I appreciate all the interaction I get on here, the comments and the likes, because it’s so nice to have people listen. I think the value of listening is underappreciated in these busy hustle and bustle times, especially during the festive season.

Oh Christmas Tree, first Christmas tree, featuring ripped jeans and a knee…

For me, the festive season brings highs and lows, and even as I write this, I feel like some would be hearing me say that in that ” Ross from Friends voice ”  and potentially think im being a bit of a “downer”(although I certainly don’t agree with that, I’ve had ‘friends’ that would say that to Me in the past.) But there are down points to the festive season, and for some people it’s  really not festive at all.  I’m not saying I’m counted in the non festive feeling all the time, but there certainly have been those moments. One thing I saw that I really loved over Christmas, was a message from Davina McCall about loneliness, and that shone out to me as a beautiful message during all the festivities. Check that out here: Davina Christmas message

 On the flip side, 2017 was a pretty epic year for me. 

In a smallest of small summaries, I met my partner Ben, and moved into a beautiful flat. Just before that, we traveled to Thailand for our first ever holiday which was incredible, and we saw elephants on my 29th birthday. We had the most incredible time, and you can read about it here: We went to Thailand blog post.  

Brb I’m going back to Thailand… 

I’ve also had a wee bit winge on about my hair on here sooo many times, but when you’re conscious of something it can sometimes take over..  But recently I’ve been doing quite well at embracing the pixie and cracking on with growing it out. (I’ll keep you updated, of course.)

I guess one big thing (to me at least) that might interest you, if indeed you are “still here reading” is that I’ve purchased a new computer. Basically my Mac died after years of not being used for its purpose (I purchased it to do YouTube and blogging and I literally watched viral videos of cats for 5 years with it!) So this computer is going to be fit for purchase. So if you want, when I make my YouTube debut, feel free to say ( a nice please!) Hello to little old me. 

I hope you’ve had the greatest feative season and I wish you the happiest of New year’s. Bring on 2018 and an abundance of inspiration. I’m feeling it.

We went to Thailand- 9 Outfits I wore.

Without going into too much detail ( to be honest, if you know me or my partner in real life, or have either of us on social media,) you will be sick of hearing about our very recent trip to Thailand. So I’m going to keep this short and sweet and just talk about the clothes (and I might add a few lovely scenery pictures in just because, well, its Thailand.

Adventure in the backyard

This post is dedicated (but not sponsored !) By natures real gift, some beautiful scenery. 

And of course, beautiful scenery leads to some impromptu blog post pictures. This area was literally a short walk away from where my boyfriend lives, and it was really  beautiful to explore, even if I was just in my dress and vans…an odd combo that I kinda love.

This dress is by motel, and I do love it, but I think it’s best worn on holiday. I popped it on with tights and a vest for my day of exploration.

 An au natural photo of myself with no editing. AKA a hard to upload photo ..

When in doubt, have a dance. 

And I think I’ll leave it there. I’ll try get back into my normal blogging schedule asap, but sometimes life takes over, which is also cool.

But for now, 

Peace.

POLAND / TRAVEL

This is definitely going to be a post unlike anything else I have done on this blog before. This post is going to be about TRAVEL. I got back from Poland, Krakow yesterday, and I feel like this is the perfect time to talk about my stay. I went with my friends, and we stayed for 3 days in Krakow, In an apartment near the Wawel castle. The area was beautiful, full of charm, and I can honestly say I was overwhelmed by the architecture of the buildings. We visited the infamous Cloth Hall and frequented Market Square. Krakow did not disappoint!

We went out for drinks in various bars, the Vodka was extremely strong and I’m sure it has taken its toll on my liver!

On the second day we visited Auschwitz and Birkenau which was quite an experience. I felt quite emotional walking round a place where so many died. It was probably the most interesting place to visit, whilst being the most eerie, almost frightening place. It defiantly put things in perspective to me and I am so thankful for the life I have.

Overall, I loved my time in Krakow, it definitely provides you with a full range of emotion, from the emotional visit to Auschwitz, To the cheery and bustling cultural atmosphere of the Old Town and Market Square.

I really have the travel bug now, and am contemplating jetting of on another adventure. Is there anywhere you recommend visiting?Image
