Lets get real...

I don't think I have ever expressed myself publicly like I am about to. It a topic that has always I suppose, scared me? So bare with me, I may drone on or rabble. 

I have always battled with my weight. It has left me with a sense of insecurity and I suppose in some way shape or form, it has stopped me from doing what I want to do. Not because my weight has prevented me but because mentally, the anxiety around my weight has. 

Society has a way of being cruel to those that aren't 'perfect'. It has taken me years to realise that people aren't perfect and those in the glossy magazines that look perfect, are in fact made perfect through airbrushing etc. Over the last couple of years I have followed the blogging community and jumped in and out of it myself, it is the bloggers out there that have shown me that we are all different, we have different shapes and we all have insecurities. No one is perfect. 

The lesson I have learnt is that confidence comes from within, unless you love yourself you will never move forward. I have always felt 'happy', or so I thought. Just under 3 months ago my life changed in a way that I never expected, I met someone that taught me that everyone see's beauty in different ways. Everyday he builds my confidence and to be honest, he has no idea he is even doing it. He makes me feel beautiful and always makes a point of telling me, even when I look like I have been dragged through a hedge backwards. I'm learning to love myself and man, it feels good. I feel like a weight is lifting and my perpective on life is changing. 

For the first time in my life I feel like I have balance in my life. I'm truly happy with my life with a number of exciting things planned out for the future. I want to better myself, not for anyone else but for me. 

The message I'm trying to get across to you guys is, that you are beautiful. Each and every single one of us is beautiful, don't let society tell you any different. Learn to love yourself. Don't let someone else opinion stop you from being you.

Wish List #1: Designer Handbags and Purses

Spring is here and Summer is right around the corner, the Winter wardrobe is out and in come the bright splashes of colour or many a subtle pastel here and there. 

I personally am a huge fan of handbags and I'm sure I'm not alone, so i've decided to pick out some handbags that probably, most of us will be dreaming about rather then purchasing. But hey, what is the harm in dreaming right?

Designer Summer Handbags and Purses

I am lucky enough to already own a Michael Kors Selma bag in black, however I would love, love, LOVE to have a colourful one for this time of year. I think I'm going to be dreaming about it for a rather long time though. 

Out of all of the selection above the Ted Baker is the most 'affordable'. I'm currently kind of staring at it online at the moment, they do it in five colours and I'm lusting after it in mint green, oh and baby pink. I may have to pop it on my birthday list and hope for the best. 

What designer bags and purses are you currently lusting over?

The return of the blogger

It could be said that I have seriously been off my blogging game. All I can do is apologise. 2014 was a bit of a whirlwind, I haven't had the time or the energy to dedicate the time required to my blog. I suppose you could say I lost my passion for it. But...I'm back. I have really missed my blog and the blogging community as a whole. 

It is just nice to feel myself once again and because of this I just think it is the perfect time to get self back into the world of blogging and this time with the view of staying in the blogging world.

So yes, I'm back..with a clean slate. Starting fresh.
This time it is definitely for good. The planning has started and I can't wait to share things with you. For those of you that have remained loyal, thank you so much and heres to the future!
