Be kind to yourself. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Have a nice day. These are my three daily mantras. And yep, I am now the proud owner of this banging Anya Hindmarch bag. Oh hell yeah.
I have several problems with trousers. I can’t ever find a pair that fit my waist, hips and short legs. Nor can I find any that are roomy enough to allow for a little extra stretch when my IBS bloat requires. I basically need to live in elasticated waists. Enter today’s Want it on Wednesday.
If you’re reading the title of this post, scratching your head, thinking Low-FODWHATNOW, this post is for you. Because 6 months ago, I’d have been in the same boat and now I’m here to help you out.
Say hello to the first WIOW post of the year! It feels fitting that I kick this series off with this dress that has a little extra room for some festive podge I’m concealing.
Let’s face it, January is tough. Especially if you’ve given up booze and pizza. I’ve actually done none of those things but am trying to get through the month without spending all money in the second week. Here are a few things that I’ll be doing to keep me going. Go give ’em a try.
I am a massive photo addict. I’m that person that won’t let you cut the cake until I’ve snapped it, my bunny can’t eat a carrot without having my phone in her face, and I even take photos of old photos, just so I can have a digital copy that’s easy to access. It’s safe to say that my phone is crammed, and today I’m sharing some of my favourite highlights.
It seems ironic to be writing this post a couple of days after saying that this is the year I’m going to be kinder to myself, however Monday set out to test me and my anxiety and I didn’t want to let it take over so early in the new year. So I put my new mantra into practice and attempted to calm the fuck down.
On my 30th birthday I was keen to go out and celebrate but instead my IBS flared its ugly head and meant I only felt less anxious once we’d cancelled our plans and I’d instead sunk my bloated, cramping belly into a hot bubble bath. This routine has become more frequent than I’d like and each time leaves me feeling frustrated that I’ve had to cancel my plans with friends, again. This year, I’m taking Anna’s advice (aka All About the Balance) and will start being more kind to myself.
2016 for me, has been a whopper of a year. I’ve had some fabulous highs but also shared some family lows. It’s been a strange one and one that I’m ready to put behind me and start afresh in 2017. Before that happens though, I’ve taken a stab at rounding up my best bits.
Over the past month or so I’ve been throwing a lot on my face to see what sticks and figured I’d accumulated a good amount to write about. I’d like to dedicate this post to Sephora’s sheet masks which have brought my tired skin back to life.
