excuse me for a while, while I’m wide-eyed

Something hasn't been quite right lately and the only thing I can pinpoint is that I've completely lost my confidence over the past few months. And that's not something I thought I'd say.

I wasn't afraid to walk into town, I didn't think everyone was looking at me, and I didn't worry that people didn't like me, up until now. I'm not really sure how to get out of this funk, but I think adopting a healthy lifestyle and treating myself every now and then is the way forward.

Lush was the answer last week. I bought the Oatifix face mask - my skin has been atrocious lately - and The Comforter bubble bar because, well, just because. And, thanks to the ever lovely staff, I was treated to a few samples, which nearly made me cry. Oh, life.

I definitely need to sort myself out and I think another Lush bath is on the cards right about now...

Sorry for the slight unload there. I don't normally do it at all. Do you ever get in a funk either life-wise or style-wise or happiness-wise? How do you get out of it?

the New Forest

The weekend before last was spent in the New Forest - Sandy Balls to be precise. And yes, that's a real place. It was my third visit and we always go at this time of year. My favourite and least favourite part of the trip was the traditional bike ride, which saw us tackle a hilly fifteen miles. Take a look at the sights, which includes wild horses trundling past, donkeys, swans, and gorgeous views...

Have you been on a wonderful British holiday recently?

what I want

All I've thought about lately are the practical things in life. We bought blinds at the weekend, I've had to book an Optician's appointment, my car's a constant worry, we need more washing-up liquid, and I count down the days until pay day. I long for the day when I can be totally frivolous and buy all of the above.

What's on your wishlist?
