This post will probably come across as over-sharing, that’s really not my aim. I’m also not looking for sympathy or for a flock of messages asking me if “I’m OK”, that’s really not why I’m here. As it is Mental Health Awareness week it felt like a good time to share my feelings and my own experiences with mental health issues.
Another week, another style post and another outfit with *way* more colour than I used to feel comfortable with…
Today’s little spring outfit breakdown is an outfit which I’m gravitating towards *way* too much lately but it’s one which I feel completely myself in so maybe that explains it.
This is the first of what will, hopefully, be a little stream of spring/summer styling posts. I’ve been planning these for a little while now and was excited to get going with them.
I’m incredibly guilty of getting stuck in my routine. Particularly in the winter months, leaving the house can be a chore. When my weekends come round, after a long old week at work, I’m more than happy to sit in, in the warm and not move from my sleepy blanket cocoon. Now, as much as that sounds like a pretty dreamy set up for a lot of people (including myself…) it starts becoming slightly Groundhog Day-esque and the weeks start merging into one, with nothing particularly interesting happening from one week to the next.

Well hello there! How are you all doing? How’re things? Long time no speak! Here we are again discussing how yet again I am failing at consistent blog writing… But here we are anyway…
When I started this blog my plan was for it to be primarily a style/fashion page and so far I have failed miserably at writing anything related to fashion. I don’t know if it’s out of fear, the slight nagging doubts that anyone would want to read it; if it’s my worry that I won’t stand out in a fairly well saturated area of blogging/insta world or if it’s all down to the fact that I doubt whether I am actually “fashionable” or “stylish” enough (not that that really matters at all but you catch my drift, hopefully…).
Hello, hello, hello! How the devil are you? How are things going? Long time no speak…. Ahh yes, I have been utterly useless at keeping on top of blog writing lately, everything seems to be getting on top of me and as blogging is just a little side line hobby for me it seems to be amongst the first things that gets forgotten about in the chaos of everyday life. I can only apologise and say, “Sorry guys, I’ve been a bit crap at acing life lately”, not that I ever “ace life” (god that’s such a cliche, why the hell did I use it…) I tend to just amble along and hope everything turns out ok… but I’m going off track here….
Life can get a little heavy sometimes. It can be so easy to let the daily grind of general day to day life drag you down and make things seem pretty pointless. We are all guilty of it and it’s completely rubbish. I for one frequently feel it and it can be totally crap. You find yourself questioning your life choices and how you’re handling this little ol’ thing called adulthood.
I’m trying to take on Annie’s positive go get ’em attitude in titling this blog after her most catchy of tunes. It can be pretty hard to maintain that irritatingly PMA (positive mental attitude… I’m not sure if this an actual abbreviation people use but I’m rolling with it…) when there’s something that seems intent on making me utterly miserable…. I’ve been making little spring/summer wardrobe purchases here and there for a while now and I am itching to style them up and get some wear out of them, there’s only one thing stopping me… this bleedy awful weather!
