Here Comes The Sun(Glasses) – and a moment of body confidence!

Summer, where did you go? Over here in the UK, we got one glorious week (ish) of lovely hot weather – just in time for me to sashay about in my new sunglasses at my beautiful cousin’s hen do. Let me tell you – I have never in my life been more thankful for the existence of suncream, sunglasses and sandals.

The lovely peeps at were kind enough to pop me over a pair of sunnies, so I chose these gorgeous ones. “They’re a bit glam,” my mum said when I showed her, and she’s right – except they’re totally practical and understated too. They’re brill for everyday and don’t look out of place with a maxi dress (which is what I lived in all weekend).


Here’s my lil disclaimer: I used to be a Primark sunglasses girl. They’re super cheap; you can fling ’em in your bag without a second thought, and when they inevitably break, you can pick up another pair for less than you’d pay for your bus home. But they’re not the comfiest, and they do almost nothing to actually protect your eyes from the sun. After wearing these Raybans all weekend, I didn’t have that ‘sunglasses headache’ – they didn’t dig into my nose, and miraculously (though tbh probably nothing to do with the glasses) I didn’t get a tan line round my eyes. I’ll be using my Primark sunnies for cute Instagram props from now on!


Here’s a little moment of body confidence. I LOVE this picture of me. I don’t even mind how much bigger my arm looks than I thought it was. I love that you can see a little circle on my wrist where my watch rubbed my tan off. I don’t even care that I’m doing something awkward with my super-thin hair. I love that you can see the scar on my hand that I got from a rogue stir-fried mushroom (not even kidding). I love that I’m dressed like a fairy princess (dress was £8 in Primark – thank me later), but most of all I love that I look so happy. Expect this photo all over my Instagram, ’cause it isn’t often that I feel so happy with myself!

So thanks for the sunnies – make sure you follow them on their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – let me know if you pick anything up and we can be glasses twins!

Speak soon!

    I love your blog, it’s so pretty, but even more so, so is your body confidence and happiness. You are beautiful and that’s that,

    I remember being 16 and thinking I had huge arms and thighs and hips and my nose was horrible and eyes weren’t right, so much so I just didn’t go to prom. Fast forward 7 years and I look back on photo’s of myself and feel so sad, I was so beautiful and it disheartens me knowing how I looked at myself… A guy I went to school with came to work with me 7 years later and told me how all the guys used to have crushes on me and I was baffled!!!!

    Keep on smiling, you are wonderful and I might just pick up a pair of those sunglasses! <3
