Well hello you lovely lot.
It’s a Sunday evening, the roast dinner has been consumed and the duvet burrito has been initiated. So let’s have a catch up, shall we? I thought this was a fitting blog post for a Sunday, to hypothetically sit down and chit chat with a little life update. So, how are you all doing? How are things treating you?
As for me, I’m doing good. Doing the same old same old of eat, sleep, work, repeat. However I did finally pass my driving test last month which feels like a massive weight off my shoulders. It’s safe to say I’m not the best driver, nor most confident, but somehow only got 1 minor? I also just put down a deposit on a new car and I had a nice tax rebate came through. My manifestations seem to be paying off, and hey, if it works *shrug emoji*
In other news I turn 21 in just over a week, I’m heading to Norfolk next weekend for the week to celebrate with family. Which probably doesn’t sound very exciting, but it was where most of my childhood summer memories are set and holds a special place in my heart. So I’m very excited for a week of dog walks on the beach, barbecues and doing whole lot of nothing. As for the whole~turning 21~ I feel pretty indifferent about it.
Other than that, I don’t have much going on this summer. Me and summer have a love hate relationship in many ways. I love summer. Stick my hair up in some form of a bun and hand me a homemade cocktail with a concoction of any alcohol around and I’m happy. However I find it hard to justify working from home on my blog and photography. They’re important to me, however when you work a day job alongside this, any time off you want to be spending soaking in the vitamin D and socializing. And I never like to put too much pressure on myself to create content, so let’s just say I’m taking it easy.
I’ve also discovered I can’t get on with summer dressing. I love the idea of it, but when it comes to it I’m greeted with an assemblage of itchy tops, boob sweat and pinched crotches *tightens legs*. And the situation just gets 10x worse when you’re petite. Brands seem to correlate petite with florals and bows and ruffles, can we not just get some staples pls?? So I tend to just stick on some floaty shorts and a baggy top and call it fashun. But yeah, can’t wait for Autumn fashion I won’t lie.
I don’t have much to catch you up on about the blog, I have ideas I want to execute but I’m also too lazy. So hopefully at some point. However as you may know I’m also a photographer, and I’m finally close to buying a new camera. So I’m currently just collecting ideas and moodboards for when I buy that, so I can build up my portfolio. So stay tuned for that!
In other news, I’ve found my new favourite pair of shoes. The lovely people at Gola sent me a pair of the Classic Grandslam trainers, and frankly I’m obsessed.
*Just for ~transparency~ I wasn’t asked to write about them, however they were gifted. I just genuinely love them and wanted to feature them in some way.
I wanted to write a full post about the power of a white trouser, but this’ll do. We all need a solid white trainer in their collection. They go with anything, whether it be jeans and a tee, a suit or even a dress. Even a little worn they’ll look good, and can save your arse when you’ve got 5 minutes to get ready and just need to chuck an outfit together. You can always rely on the white trainer, and these Gola ones are gorgeous & great quality!
So, that’s about it. A rather anti-climatic life update. But hey, I do love an easy-going chatty post for a Sunday evening read. So hopefully you do to. Have a good weekend pals.
