What I Wore // Elvi Stripe Jumpsuit

Jumpsuit: Elvi // Heels: ASOS

After travelling a million miles to Bexhill on Sea for a friends wedding, I thought I'd take advantage of the sea front location & take classy blog pictures on the sand, real serious & professional. Unfortunately, the wind had other ideas & in most pictures, I look like I'm having a fight with a tornado & losing spectacularly. I did manage to get some relatively composed pictures on the Twilight-esque band stand, fortunately no sparkly vampires were involved.

My ability to spell is impressive, I know. Unfortunately, my creativity when it comes to blog titles is lacking, so that's the best you're gonna get.

How to Change the World

...or at least the world around you.

I’m pretty sure 2016 is going to go down in history as a dismal point in the twenty first century. At least, I hope future generations look back appalled at the actions of their ancestors, however much we don't appear to have learnt from previous mistakes.

Right now, many of us are left feeling deflated, scared and disenfranchised. After the devastation of Brexit, the current election result is a heartbreak that’s hard to bear. I, like most, am terrified of what this could mean for millions of Americans. After the EU referendum, hate crime increased by 58% & I can only hope the hatred fuelling Trump’s campaign doesn’t incite a similar alarming reaction.

Be angry, be upset, be afraid, be everything & anything you need to be to make it through but please don’t give up; we have so much further to go.

& if you’re feeling hopeless, here’s 5 things you can do to make a difference right now:

Stressed, Depressed but Well Dressed

Today is World Mental Health Day & although it’s been 24 years since it began, there is still a very real stigma surrounding mental health. 

Today I have seen supporting messages, inspiring posts & have spent time reading other people’s stories. Now, I feel it’s time to share my own. Honestly I’m terrified and more than slightly ashamed but I owe it to myself & to everyone else who has been brave enough to speak out. 

Confession time: I have depression & body dysmorphia.
