Just a little update that I wanted to share with all of you today. Last time we chatted I had mentioned the rut I was experiencing and how it was impacting on me and my blog. After seriously thinking about what exactly I want to achieve this year I bit the bullet and finally ticked off one of my most important bucket list goals – travel. I had been researching various places (I worked out that I want travelling to be my chosen career!) and spoke to an amazing girl at Trailfinders who got to know me, my interests, my concerns (I’ve never travelled on a tour like this before) and what kind of experience is best suited for me.
You may remember that at the start of last summer I shared my experience of living with Chronic Anxiety (you can read it here). It took me quite some time to open up about it as I was feeling embarrassed. Eventually I built up the courage to talk about things and I sought help. Once I received my diagnosis I spent further time building myself back up and moving into a more positive place. After sharing everything with all of you I felt a huge sense of relief and gratitude as you were all so kind.
The weekend has finally arrived! It’s certainly been a busy one between events, birthday’s and a great catch up with my good friend Ruth from Willow Lane. I was recently at the launch of the new KIKO store in Belfast and it was absolutely amazing! If you’re not familiar with the brand it is Italian based and their products are not only incredible but purse friendly! I’ll be featuring them on my blog next week so keep an eye out. So… this week on my Instagram it has been a firm mixture of style, beauty and travel shots. I’ve been featuring lots of my Spanish looks, my ColourPop collection and a colourful photo diary from my recent holiday.
Having spent a glorious week in Spain, I wanted to share my photo diary of my adventures. I had an incredible time exploring and spending some quality time with my family. If I had my own way I would spend the entire Summer there but unfortunately we all have to get back to reality. Last week I featured a few OOTD posts on the blog and today I’m excited to share my love of Spain and photography. I had been looking forward to my much needed holiday and it was honestly amazing to get away and relax. It has been four years since I was last in Murcia and getting back to the beach and culture was delightful. The weather was MAGNIFICENT and I made the most of the heat and glorious sunshine. Waking up in the morning and heading out to the patio for crossiants and coffee was a great way to start my day.
It has been a while since I wore a midi dress like this one. For a few years it just didn’t suit me as I had insecurities with my weight. Not that it was a big issue but it made the dress emphasise my problem areas. Over the past few months my weight has changed and I thought the dress was perfect for my holiday in Spain. It may mainly consist of dark shades but it is such a cool style to wear in the heat. As it’s a pretty dramatic piece I opted for minimal accessories along with my hair and makeup. The purple shades running throughout the dress are absolutely beautiful, they really popped against the sunshine.
