Note to self. It’s almost four in the morning and I can’t sleep. I feel sad and hopeless and, most of all, tired — of pretty much everything. .
I’m tired of waking up with a headache every day from grinding my teeth in my sleep. I’m tired of trying to swallow down the lump in my throat that makes it hard to breathe. I’m tired of the heart palpitations, the nausea, the sensation that my head is spinning when things get too much. I’m tired of the little nagging voice in my head that refuses to stay quiet, telling me I’m not good enough and I’m not loved and I’m not any of the most basic things I want to be. I’m tired of feeling sad all the damn time.  I’m tired of looking in the mirror and despising what I see and what I think. I’m tired of being told to cheer up, be chirpier, make an effort, snap out of it, try to be happy. I’m so tired of trying. .

Not one to post so many selfies so close together but I was loving my makeup yesterday — a bit much for an afternoon at the pub but still! .

Desperately buying scented candles in a personal bid to feel remotely autumnal and shoo this disgusting hot weather away. This li’l one was £1.99 from @aldiuk and smells way more expensive than it is 🌿.

Back home to a tough start to the week, but determined to stay smiling. If the last few days have proved anything to me, it’s that I have the most amazing support network around me, including my incredible parents and friends (both “real life” and from the blogging world — seriously, you guys are awesome), and that means so much more to me than what threatens to bring me down.

In other news, I’m obsessed with this dress! Can you believe it was fifteen quid from @amazon!? 🌻 .

After a lovely week in Cornwall, I’ll be travelling back home tomorrow. Safe to say I have some tough days ahead and I’m going to miss this place a lot ⛅️.

Spent the day exploring. To say I’m lucky enough to visit Cornwall twice a year, I haven’t actually seen that much of it! Today we drove all along the coastal path down to Land’s End, and even in the rain it was absolutely stunning! 🌊.

Spent the afternoon reading in the garden with many cups of tea and a snoozy pupper on my lap after a mostly rainy weekend ☕️ a week on annual leave couldn’t come soon enough!

What do you have planned for this week?

This weekend, I took myself on a li’l road trip to Cardiff to see a very old friend. We’ve known each other since we started chatting to each other on Tumblr (!!!) and we’ve only met up a handful of times over the years. The last time we saw each other was four years ago, when we both happened to be in Cornwall at the same time and ended up mooching around Newquay for the day. It’s so lovely to have friends like that, where you can not see each other for a long time or not even talk for weeks on end and it’s still like no time has passed!

The only fly in the ointment is the fact that my car won’t start and I’m currently waiting to be towed back to Nottingham 🙃🙃🙃 #flowers #cardiff #positivevibes #feelinggood #shinyhappybloggers #floral_splash #floral_perfection #oldfriends #sundayfunday #sundayvibes #sundayfun #weekend #weekendgetaway #thegirlgang
Today I found a charity shop entirely dedicated to books and I nearly cried. It was very overwhelming 📚 I managed to control myself though and didn’t buy a single one (cry). I have too many as it as. Reading #IntoTheWater by Paula Hawkins at the moment!

This is gonna be my motto this week. Hopefully some changes are afoot, so keep your fingers crossed for me! In the meantime, I’m going to make sure I get into bed every evening knowing I’ve made my best effort possible and be happy with that 🌷 📌 image source @pinterest

So, a little update: things aren’t great. I’m feeling really down, really overwhelmed by pretty much every aspect of life and I want to crawl into a hole for a little while and wait for things to pass. Unfortunately life doesn’t really work that way, and right now I’m riding the Sunday night anxiety and hoping I can turn over a fresh page tomorrow morning. I’ve never felt pressured to post until recently — so while I get my head back into gear, the blog is going to take a back seat. 
In other news, this heat is unbearable but the sunset was gorgeous tonight 🌅
