  • Do you ever find yourself minimising how you feel?
.
Instead of just saying ‘I had an anxiety attack’ I found myself saying ‘I had a migraine’ or ‘a small anxiety attack’ or ‘a bit of an anxiety attack’. I found myself dismissing my own discomfort because a) not wanting to make a fuss and b) there’s so many people dealing with so much more than me so why should I be feeling like this?
.
This thinking is SO toxic, and I find a lot of women also have this pattern. The problem is, it’s a way of thinking that on the surface sounds useful but is absolutely not. Yes, sadly there will always be someone in a worse situation than you, but using that as a reason to invalidate your own feelings is not helpful.
.
To enable us to process, deal with and heal the more negative aspects of our lives and emotions through self care we must allow ourselves to validate how we feel!
.
Your experience is your experience and your feelings about it are valid no matter what - you can have compassion for others in worse situations and still have compassion for yourself 💗

  • This weekend has been an interesting mix of family time, Saturday night working, binge watching Ugly House to Lovely House on All 4, being a background model for @behappybebrightbeyou_x gorgeous retreat photographs (check out my stories!) all the while being on day 30 of my cycle and having a minor overwhelm freak out this morning.
.
I’ve just needed to take a step back this evening and this quote is a good reminder to me going into next week to find that balance between surrendering and pushing.
.
Wishing you all a fab week ahead! ✨

  • Got all glammed up for a photo shoot today! (Ignore my hair though this is post outside getting blown about in the wind!) 🌬
.
If anything is going to trigger off your body image issues it’s getting profesh photos taken, but this is probably the first time I haven’t had a meltdown about it - although come back to me when I actually see the pics! 😬
.
I’ve had 4 photoshoots for myself and a couple of others for magazines and things - check out my stories for my best tips on preparing for a photo shoot ✨
.
Ultimately, when I do get a body image wobble about photos I try and remind myself that it’s just a snap shot made in a second. Anyone can be made to look different depending on angles and lighting - and don’t get me started on digital alteration - so I try not to let my view of my worth get attached to something so changeable if that makes sense!
.
Have you had a photo shoot done before? How do you feel about having your photo taken? 📷

  • Anyone else love cinnamon rolls? 🍂
.
I have making some of my own (recipe on my site) on my autumn bucket list. Nothing says autumn to me like a chai latte and a cinnamon roll! 🍁
.
Do you have a dish or recipe that makes you feel all autumnal?

  • It’s only taken me 18 months to get some art on our walls and what a difference it makes! ⚡️
.
I’ve always felt a real shift in how I feel when I enjoy how my environment looks - design, style and things I think are beautiful make me happy 💗
.
Most of the prints are from @society6 and the cushions are both @laredoute_uk and @homesense_ukie .
Surrounding yourself with things you feel are beautiful is a form of self care in my book! ⭐️

  • So many of us have an inner belief that we are somehow not enough ⚡️
.
When I look back at my own journey, this has been at the heart of so many issues I’ve had, especially with food and my relationship with my body
.
And honestly, it goes so deep it still impacts me now in many ways. But something has shifted recently - that statement ‘I’m not enough’ doesn’t feel like my truth anymore.
.
I’m working on seeing my worth as something that is non negotiable and completely independent from my weight, my dress size, my bank balance or my social media following.
.
My worth - and yours - is inherent. Your enoughness is not dependent upon anything. You are enough. Period. Full stop.
.
Has anyone else struggled with not feeling good enough? Which areas of your life does it impact the most?

  • I haven’t juiced in ages. Generally I prefer smoothies anyway, but I’m trying to kick this cold to the curb and juices are a handy way to get some intense veggie goodness into my system✨
.
This juice made me realise how fabulous juices can be - it reminded me of refresher sweet! 🍬
.
2 apples, 2 beetroot and a good chunk of ginger - so good!
.
When was the last time you had a juice? What’s your fave juice ingredients?

  • Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been doing a bunch of house updates. Decorating is definitely my happy place ✨
.
Just wanted to share my shelfie because I’m so super chuffed with it 💗
.
Fave books, food photography styling props and an ivy plant which is my third one in about 6 weeks cause I just can’t keep them alive for some reason!
.
It might just be my fave corner of the house ❤️ .
