Fashion Friday - Catching up with The Sun

Catching up with The Sun

It feels like forever since I've felt warm sun on my skin. Winter seems to be dragging on for far too long. We have finally had some happy weather, so I took the chance to go outside and soak up some vitamin D. Whilst enjoying the warmth we decided to take some shots as the weather was just too perfect.

All items of clothing - thrifted

Pinterest Ponders: When Leaves Fall

The transition from Summer to Autumn is my favourite time of the year. It is when the sky and the air is hesitant of what they wish. The air is cool and crisp, it cleans my lungs with every fresh, new breathe I take, yet the sky illuminates with the suns warmth and tickles my goosebumps, spreading positive vibes all over my body.

I love Autumn the most. It's fresh, it's clean, it's a new start with new ideas. It is the season of my birth and it is a season for holidays. Easter. Chocolate. Long Weekend. All of my favourite things.

Even though I have only just returned from Thailand, I am determined to make this season, my season and this, year my year. Because I am tired, I am tired of my job, my health, my attitude. This year is going to change and it's all going to start this Autumn. My goals are to eat clean, green and healthy, to eat less meat, less gluten and less processed food, to do my yoga, to meditate, to appreciate nature, to learn the beautiful language of Thai, to look for the positive in everything, to do what I love, to be my true, happy, positive, healthy self. To change in all the good ways.

Taking your time in life is important too. It is something I lack. I am am one of those people who tries so hard to be organised and get everything done the way it should be and I tend to stress over the smallest of things. I never make my own kooky decisions or take a chance at the simplest of things. I need to take my time and just ... breathe...

This year is going to be my year. Autumn is my inspirartion. Autumn is getting rid of last years negativity and laziness, getting rid of old leaves and leaving room for new ones, new ideas, new opportunities.

It all begins right here, right now. The new me.

These photos below inspire me. I am ready for Autumn, I am ready to take on new challenges and make a change for myself. I am fierce and I am strong and I am ready!
