I'm seriously still not sure how it's December already! I feel unprepared for Christmas- although, that's nothing new- It's early to think about resolutions, and I don't particularly do them, but lets talk about sleep...
I've always had issues with insomnia throughout adulthood, and try to take all the recommending precautions/advice. I find it odd that I actually find it easier sleeping next to someone, rather than alone; this is ruled out, obvs, being a singleton! However, I've been hearing about #asmr and it's benefits so I took to YouTube and found a suitable one...I'm more keen on the spiritualists who perform #reikienergy & #crystaltherapy and I've gotta say, it's working like a dream ☁️
Here's to a kind and joyful month! 💞

Nah, not out of bleakness! It’s been a funny week. Went to a @florence gig with friends last weekend as a pre-birthday treat. Next thing my father’s car was stolen (I can’t explain my hate of this evil in words!), then my nephews were born safe & sound. Phew. [20th Nov]...Faith in humanity all over the shop!!
It’s Sagittarius season, what more can I expect. Aiming to keep calm and dream of my first cuddles with the baby boys!

I’ll never tire of looking at this boy. In these autumnal evenings, I think I treasure moments with my #myfurbabies even more...Soft, warm & cosy gorgeousness! 🥰

The recent, gloomy, wet weather has had me dreaming of summer times meandering around country houses...so I’m throwing it back to Hatfield House 🌸 I can never get over how exquisite it is here ⛲️ Breathtaking!

A BEAutiful shot from Monday. I love capturing the world like this, so pretty. A sunny, autumnal October; that's got to be a good sign of things to come from the angels above, right!? ⛅️🍂🧙🏼‍♀️🌍
~~
I really hope so, as times are kinda tough at the moment. I shan't divuldge why, but there are good things to come in the future also so I'm holding on to that. It's my favourite season too, and as much as I feel like it's not welcomed right now, it's here & I must use it to keep the faith, slow down the racing thoughts and hit reset 🛎 Which also calls for a continuation of less social media & more soul-searching.
Check out my latest blog post {link in bio ⤴️} for a more in-depth convo on the above!

It can be really tough at times to submerge yourself in the ifs, buts & cant’s that dominate our minds, and forget the hugely positive factors and traits that make us who we are. 
I came across this #iweigh campaign and it struck a chord. I always say that the society we live in is too media and appearance based; how we can ‘look better.’ It’s soul destroying for many & breeds insecurity & addiction. We’re more than just our exterior..
~~
So here’s a small fraction of what @i_weigh ☺️ I think you’d surprise yourself at the eclectic amount of achievements and interests you may have - or things you aim to achieve. Aspire to be something of substance or something that puts fire in your belly! Any small achievement is a positive action. Everything is valid and enormous. 💛

Mentality for the day has been #noexcuses🚫
▪️
A life with no limits? Now wouldn’t that be glorious! Today has consisted of lots of water, an achy body & dizziness galore 😕 After just half an hour of exercise and 20 minutes of yoga [which I’m a beginner in], my poor *shunted self felt the effects of my head being flung about in different positions. Ouch!! I feel pretty sorry for myself today.
▪️
I plan to continue to push my body, in ways that work for me. I am limited in my choices of exercise but I’m a trier, and I’m not stopping until I attain my wants, needs and goals 👊🏼
*For those unaware, a shunt is a tube that drains cerebral fluid. Mine is over a decade old. I’m just praying it’s not malfunctioning....

A little showreel of my trip to *hot* Southwest Cornwall; the Cornish Riviera: aka, #poldark / #rickstein country!! The scenery is so very picturesque. Cornwall has always been a special place to visit for me. A gem in Britain, truly. 💎🐚⛵️🍦
~~
Whilst there, I took time to really feel what the world is feeling, you know? The months are ticking by like wildflower & July seemed to have lots of cosmos, karmic changes making everyone experience life pretty intensely, I’d say. Perhaps you feel delightfully joyous or excited, or maybe you’re in a position of fear, unsure of which path to proceed down ? Either way, August promotes change. Take heart, muster strength and delve into the unknown....We can now step into a lighter vibe of enlightenment! 🦁

Having not coloured my hair since March, I decided to get my bronde balayage refreshed last month. 💆🏻‍♀️🧚🏼‍♀️
After a week in Cornwall, my hair still feels oh so fancy & summery, thanks to @paulwattshair

In this beautiful, summer weather, the cosmos is fiery, emotions run high and Mars in retrograde! Would you describe yourself as an empath or sensitive soul & if so, do you find that your emotional nature is beneficial or negative to your mental wellbeing ? 🧡🌊
As a singleton, I do find dating a bit of a pressure cooker, which can definitely heighten anxieties.. So, how do we ease that tension: what grounding & healing powers are of use to you? Check out my latest post for some insight and laughs! (Link in bio ⤴️)
