Watching: YouTube. I have got back into YouTube recently after a bit of a hiatus. I have been loving Lydia Elise Millen's content recently. Her style is amazing and kind of the same as mine, so I love looking to her for some inspiration.

Perspective is a funny thing. It is defined as "a particular attitude towards or a way of regarding something"* and as a consequence is totally changeable depending on time, person, place etc.
I always used to like a certainty which perspective is certainly not, which meant that I wanted my perspective to be affirmed by others to know I was right.

I haven't been in Oxford for a long time until recently. I met up with a friend and don't you love it when you can just pick it up where you left off: that is the sign of true friendship to me.
Another sign of true friendship is knowing my love of cream teas and taking me to a place that is well known for them.

I thought I would do more of a chatty post about what I have been up to lately.
As you have probably noticed I have been frequenting hotter climates. I went on holiday with the girls, and other members of my family, to Malta for nearly two weeks.

Playsuits are something I love in theory.
They look like a dress but have the benefits of shorts. No need to worry about gusts of winds leaving you red faced. Yes I might have first hand experience of that embarrassment and rather not relive it.
Also there are so many really pretty ones just waiting to be bought. They are so popular this year and are literally everywhere.

Bikinis are what nightmares are made of: fact. The reality of seeing my reflection in a changing room mirror where it seems all my lumps and bumps are on show, well it is no wonder I put it off buying them.
But this year I decided it was going to be different. It was about time to face my lack of body confidence head on.
I have never been the most confident about the way I look: that is what glasses from a young age and a long period in the awkward years did to me. But after Ava and Esme, well, it has to be said any body confidence I had had disappeared. Suddenley my body had changed so much and it no longer felt like mine anymore. There were lumps and bumps that hadn't been there before and this thought of "I'm a mother can I still wear this?" ran through my head far too often.

There is something so fresh and clean about white clothes. They look so crisp and chic until someone comes along with their mucky little handprints (I'm looking at you Meme!)

I never realised how quickly time passed. When I was younger school terms seemed to be never ending and weeks of exams seemed to feel like lifetimes. But as I have grown up I seem to have found a new appreciation for time, especially since having the girls.
