2004 Throwback

July 31, 2017

2004 Throwback Hilary Duff Lindsay Lohan The OC Ashlee Simpson

Recently, I’ve been on a bit of a nostalgia trip. Although to be honest, when am I not? Listening to a lot of the Throwback Thursday playlist on Spotify, excitedly chatting to a co-worker about our secret love for Hilary Duff – mine still ever-present, hers she’ll probably deny – and going through old photos on my computer have all fuelled this.

So after months of contemplating, I figured it was only natural to create a throwback series. So here it is, the first of it’s kind. Please enjoy my 2004 Throwback!

At long last, my favourite season is finally here. It took it’s time kicking in though; I don’t think it truly arrived until April 2nd, when we turned the clocks back and received that blissful extra hour. Is there anything better than an extended lazy Sunday? I remember that day well, I wore my favourite jumper and went for a walk along the beach with Jordan and his dog. It was a crisp day, it was the best day.

I love it when the weather starts to get cold – as far back as I can remember, I always have. A big part of why I love it is related to clothing; the layers, thick coats and outfitting. Getting dressed is much more worthwhile when the weather is colder – there are so many more options. I find I get really lazy in summer, the hot weather makes me dress solely for comfort and not so much for style. Autumn makes me excited to bundle up.

It’s more than just clothes though; it’s the rainy nights all tucked in bed, train rides through the countryside, changing leaves, hiking, cold noses, Easter long weekends, drinking hot coffee in front of outdoor fires, pizza, dark crimson nails, church on a Sunday morning and homemade soup.

Autumn makes me feel all warm inside, contrary to what most people think of Spring; I think it feels like the start of something new.

January Summer 2017

Hello 2017! January is here but to be honest, it’s taken me awhile to shake off December. I reluctantly took down the Christmas tree and I stocked up on mince pies and Christmas pudding as soon as Boxing Day hit. Because you know, I really like those things but also because who am I to resist the specials!?

I’m trying to find some routine to my life again, I’ve joined a gym which is literally just down the road from my house and I’ve been starting to run again which has been really good. I used to run a lot and I didn’t realise how much I missed it! The weather has finally picked up too, as in, it actually feels like summer now.

I went to the beach on the weekend, which I don’t do too often and it was…perfect. Growing up, I never really went to the beach. I realise now how much I like it. I hope I get to go there a few more times this summer. That and drink as much iced coffee that I can get my hands on!

I hope the start of your 2017 has been a good one so far!

Disregard everything; I was wrong, I was mistaken, I was a fool. I didn’t know what I know now, how could I have known? I was drowning and I didn’t even realise it. But out of the depths, I have conquered. I am free.

And I have never felt more free or been more happy.

Heat Wave

Happy 2016! I hope you’re all enjoying the hot weather. To be honest, I have a love/hate relationship with it, but only because my two-storey unit doesn’t have air conditioning and I’m getting kind of sick of sleeping on the couch downstairs… Other than that, I’ve been loving spending warm weekends in the backyard – other people’s that is – and drinking cold apple cider after a hard week at work.

This month I’m hoping to get back on track in a few different areas, basically every area of my life. Is it achievable to set such high goals for oneself a mere four days after New Years? Not really. But I figure, what better time of year to set them. When else are they going to get done?  I always feel extra motivated in January, fresh page, clean slate, you know what I mean?

In the meantime, I’ll keep looking at these beautiful images of sun kissed skin, flat tummies and beaches to keep me remembering my goals.

What are your plans this January?
