Should I be bothered?

Hello Lovelies!

I’m not too happy with myself. Since starting my job I’ve all but abandoned my blog. I need to get myself organised and make sure that I have drafts to upload during the week and avoid two weeks going by with nothing.

In one of my last posts I spoke about the summer and how I think it’s a bit over hyped in general.

One thing I referred to was it being know as bikini season. There’s a pressure put on girls every year to get themselves in shape and looking well. This is something I haven’t ever subject myself too. In fact in general I’m quite a lazy person.

I don’t go to the gym, I don’t go for walks/runs everyday and I certainly don’t regular follow along to YouTube fitness videos. In other words, I’m just not bothered.

But now the opposite to what should be the case has happened. (If that makes sense). Instead of getting my body to its fitness peak, I’ve actually gained weight.

This is the first time I’ve ever had a proper realisation that in fact I have gained weight.

I don’t know how much, but I do know that in the last two months my boobs and bum are bigger and my stomach area is definitely not as slim as it once was.

I haven’t really been doing much shopping because not much seems to look good on me right now and even the clothes I do own just don’t feel as good as they did.

It’s one of the hardest things for a girl, I’ll admit that. But I’m still not that bothered.

I know how this has happened and what I can do to fix it but I’m lacking that want/desire, that motivation to do anything.

I haven’t cried about the situation, but that’s partly because its feels wrong to cry about such a thing.And maybe also a little dramatic like is this really a thing to cry about or even just get in any way upset about.

So here’s the thing. Is this an issue? Why am I not more concerned?  Am I just giving in to my lazy nature? denying there is an issue and just making excuses? I guess I’m still happy. Obviously I don’t love that I’ve gained weight but it just isn’t something that I want to do anything about right now.

Am I the only one? Do you guys understand what I’m saying? I didn’t think I’m making much sense to be honest.

I guess I just wanted to share these thoughts because it seems like all people do this time of year is talk about getting that perfect slim body and sharing images of women wearing bikinis- the go to image for inspiration, and inadvertently saying “this will make you happy if you look like this”.

Let me know your thoughts/stories/experiences in the comments below. I’d love to hear from you!

Summer Time

Hello lovelies.

So my last post, while I found it good to do a more intense real life type post I thought I would do a more chill down time snappy read one today.

But if you did like what you read first all thank you! And second of all there’s definitely more to come.

So here’s the things that make up a great summers day for me…

In no particular order leeego… 🙂

1. Good Reading Material

So for some reason I do most of my book/novel reading in the summer time.

I just find it so relaxing to take a break from my phone and fall into another world. Focus more on the characters problems than my own 😄

These are a few books on my summer reading list:



2. The Playlist🎶🎶

Very very important. What is summer without the tunes that turn  our days into movie scenes.

Spotify is my go to for music. There’s so much to choose from. Now I am a cheapskate so I have to deal with the ads and a limited number of skips. But besides this barely tolerable factor I like using the app.

This playlist is a working progress but I’ll suggest it here anyways. A for effort 😄

Now this one isn’t mine but there’s a good variety of club summer like tunes here. ☀️
And who doesn’t love a bit of throwback to the old favourites.


*For more see my Spotify @gurlthinking. Also some playlists are collaborative so feel free to add to them!

3.The shades.

Sunglasses are my favourite accessory, along with chokers. And when the sun breaks through the sky you have to have the perfect pair so as not to let down your cute ass outfit, consisting of white de-stressed shorts, basic tee and maybe even a kimono.  These are some of my faves, ones I own and some you can buy online.

These are from Charlotte Russe

4. Hurr

I’m very lazy when it comes to my hair. I don’t like doing too much with it or putting too much product on it. I like to have it very natural looking. A new fave of mine is sea salt spray. This emphasises the waves my hair already has, but giving it more volume and a soft feel and textured look.

I use the Tony and Guy Casual Sea Salt Spray. It’s a 75ml bottle that I have-perfect for travelling. It lasts me a while too because I don’t use that much at a time. I use this after I’ve washed my hair while it’s still damp, it doesn’t work with dry-trust me! 🙂

 

 

So that’s all I think of for now. I thought this would be a fun post to share what I love during the summer.

ByEEEEE
