☆Well #operationdeclutter is in full swing! ...and today's chosen area is under the stairs, it's probs one of the worst parts to sort. 🙄 But basically we've lived in our house for almost two years now, and I've just been piling more and more bits(/crap) under there since we got the keys. 🤣 ...I bet your probs wondering why I've got a wedding pic with this caption, any excuse lol, but it's because all our wedding stuff is under the stairs, and to be honest it's about time I finally got off my arse and organised it all, isn't it! 😉 do you hoard like crazy like me? Or live a nice organised life? ☆
After eating 10000 easter eggs and drinking my body weight at the races, I'm back on the gorgeous @bexleysbutchersliverpool meal prep. Honest to god, I don't know how they make 300 calorie meals taste this fit.
“You are amazing, if only you knew how much”
This beautiful card from @icancards cheered me up so damned much when I pulled it out.
We’re all amazing. Yet we’re mostly lead not to believe it. Be it the media, friends (more likely bullies) and sometimes even our nearest and dearest can aim and fire shots that hurt our most deep, inner feelings 😩
Don’t allow their negativity to cast a wave over your grandeur. Believe your hype, level your head on those beautiful shoulders, high and mighty.
Be your own warrior,
Awesome, and all 💯
Raindrops on tulips. This is my favourite tulip in our garden, the colours are wonderful and they always bring a smile to my face.

Tuesday never looked so good, I’m off to the beach with the girls. Yes I know it’s threatening to rain but that never stopped a group of friends getting together for a little chat, a photo shoot and well let’s just say a girly day involving tea & cake. There’s an adventurer, a pregnant one, a traveller, a crafter who also loves to travel and little old me. Today Matthew my online world becomes reality and I’m excited. See you at the beach girlies x x #bloggersocial#bloggermeetup#tuesdayneverlookedsogood
Feeling a bit emotional thinking about being here next week with my best mate and absolute angel that is @christine65b! An entire week of girly fun, swapping crime thrillers, drinking cocktails and celebrating my 29th birthday. Can’t wait to get a week full of mama cuddles, her hair braiding skills and her ability to make me contemplate Tena pads because she genuinely makes me laugh that much. Pray for my pelvic muscles 😂
Remember a few weeks ago when I told you about the Designer handbags & Fashion sale @chiswick_auctions?❤️ well this is what I bought! A rather fabulous vintage Chanel GST in red... I needed it right?! 😍💕🙌🏻 PS. The next sale is on May 16th and I’m selling a few bits from my own Chanel collection in it! More deets coming soon! #chanel
I've been thinking about this need to be perfect, to have the most Instagramable picture, background, outfit, home and life, and how exhausting it is trying to keep up with social media expectations.
Over the last month or so I've been having more fun with my outfits, shooting more on the go, worrying less about whether it is an outfit that people will like, and how many followers I'm loosing, and I can't tell you how much happier I've felt with my content.
We can all get sucked into this Instagram vacuum and the idea of everything being perfect but isn't there something more unique and human about being a little imperfect?
🎉🎉It's my birthday!🎉🎉
I am usually a complete pest about my birthday, giving everyone a ridiculously long countdown and mentioning it at every possible opportunity ... But this year I pretty much forgot about it! April is always crazy-busy with #rosaceaawarenessmonth but with Aaron's book launch as well, it has just been manic. Today we're in Stratford Upon Avon for the #stratfordliteraryfestival where Aaron was talking, which was a lot of fun. Plus, I get to hang out with the ghost of Shakespeare: my birthday twin! 👏
Pinterest is my main source of inspo for nails, and I’m absolutely loving my current mani. Tina @cuttingedge16 is a star! 💅🏻
I went pretty hard on skincare last night so giving my face some TLC with @patchology Restoring Night Eye Gels and @joshrosebrook Hydration Mask.

Suns out, SMILES OUT! The weather has been absolutely delightful lately! Im one of those chicks who hibernates in the winter then as soon as I see a ray of sunshine, off go the 50 layers of clothing! I honestly feel like I'm destined to live in a hot country! I don't know how people in Iceland cope with 4-5 hours of daylight?! Having lived in The Philippines and Spain I love the laid back attitude and little siestas... maybe I'll just inforce the siesta part at work?! Hi Mel... heres your P45 🤣... jokes aside.... Have you guys been enjoying the change of weather?! 😍☀️👙
Have loved riding around the city on the cable cars, like being on a ride just hanging off while going up and down the hills // #notquiteathemepark#cablecarfun

❓Does the curse of comparison ever creep up on you?
In the first magical moment that Max and I gazed up at #kuangsifalls, another tourist leaned over and commented “I thought it would be bigger”. 💦
He went on to compare it to Plitvice Lakes in Croatia which he said were better but that you couldn’t swim there. 🏊♀️
I was surprised by the comments and by the quick dismissal. 🤔
We continued on through the park and were amazed by the incredible beauty of it all. 💚
But those comments gave me pause because I realized that I’ve been a victim of my own travel comparison too. 🌏
I think it’s normal for our brains to try to categorize a new destination and automatically compare to what we already know. 💁🏼♀️
The challenge is to remain in the moment and enjoy the new place for what it is, in all its glory. 🌟
