My Mum is one of those people that always does her best to always be happy, and enjoys making other people happy. Sparkles, flowers, love notes – you name it, and she’s all over it. She once gave me a Swarovski pen with a little saying imprinted on the side “Life is flat without bubbles”, which sums up my dear Mother’s life philosophy. I need to listen and learn more from her.
I’ve never been one for Valentines Day. No, I’m not like your bitter Facebook friend posting sad faced photos of themselves or throwing I HATE VALENTINES DAY events… I’ve just always thought it was a bit over-rated. And after a few unwanted (grand, I’ll give him that) Valentine’s gestures from guys in high school, I was always quite frightened by the idea. But like everything, times tend to change you, and in this case, for the better.
Oh dear it’s really felt like summer is officially over this week. Perhaps it’s the abundance of coats, boots and hats in shop windows, or maybe it’s the fact that the days seem shorter no matter how well planned you are (how does that always happen!?), but I’m slowly accepting the fact that it might be time to focus less on bikinis and more on things that actually serve two purposes : to keep you snug and at least remotely stylish at the same time.
I have a confession to make. This two piece landed on my door step on a Friday afternoon. I may or may not have found three different ways to wear it the entire weekend. So what – it’s easy to get creative when you love something, and a psychedelic blue and white two piece ticks all the boxes for me at the moment.
