The benefit of hindsight in love

20 Apr 2017

Today, I was clearing out my bedroom and I found a diary I had written in at the beginning of 2015. In it, I wrote about how I was still 'in love' with a guy I was briefly seeing the summer previous. Seriously guys, this literally made me laugh out loud at myself! How ridiculous. 

This sent me off on a little trip down memory lane, in particular I was thinking about my history with men. Now don't get me wrong I ain't no Taylor Swift, I could only manage to make 2 men be my boyfriend in my 24 years. But there was a couple of 'encounters' in between those relationships that I really started to think about because they were the ones that have almost taught me more going forward as a newly single girl who wants to start dating again soon-ish.

I started to think about how I behaved in these little relationships in between real relationships and guys, looking back now I honestly laugh at myself because at times I was pretty pathetic hah.

My problem is I fall 'in love' so quickly. When I really liked someone I became infatuated, I lived for their texts and dreamed of us becoming official like it would fix all of my problems. And when things would go south I would be devastated and apparently still 'In love' with them six months after they gave me the boot. 

I wore rose tinted glasses and thought those people were perfect.

But now, looking back, I can see that they were not. I can see all of their flaws and traits I wouldn't like and I can finally see why they weren't right for me. So who care's if they hurt me or just ghosted on me whilst I was 'in love' with them. Because really I wasn't, the times love really developed were the times the person didn't cause so much obsession and worry in the dating stages.

I have no regrets though, because now I know how to approach dating going forward. I know not to push things, if it is meant to be it will progress naturally. I know when to let go and move on and I here-by promise myself I will never hold on to a 'love' for some douche-bag I was seeing for two months six months prior!

Spring Wishlist | Pink Long Dresses

17 Apr 2017

SOURCE
Hey Guys! So one of my favorite clothing websites Zaful has got in touch with me asking to create a Spring fashion wish list using products from their site. This season I am all about the dresses and Zaful have some gorgeous pink long dresses and floral wrap dresses which have really made me excited for the summer and some warmer weather.

It's funny because I've never usually been much of a dress  wearer but this year, as the evenings are getting longer and the Summer is quickly rolling in, I find myself browsing the dresses section of most websites. I'm really picturing myself in blush pink dresses with some brown sandals and a sun hat on my holidays this year and I am loving the selection Zaful have to choose from. They're all so feminine, soft with a strong summer festival vibe.

One of my absolute favourites is this loose printed dress. I adore the embroidery trend that's been huge these past few months and absolutely love the floral details on the shoulders of this piece. This is so girly and cute and I feel like it could be dressed up with a pair of heels or dressed down with a belt and some boots. You could even wear it in Autumn with some tights since it has long sleeves!

Another one of my favourites in the 'Pink long dresses' section is this stunning off the shoulder floral maxi dress This is quite a different vibe to the first as it is a real beach dress but I think it would be absolutely gorgeous for a sun holiday. I love the peachy colour, the pattern and the fact it's off the shoulder. Such a pretty flowy piece which has quite a boho vibe which I love!

If you're a lover of all things floral like me you will love their selection of floral wrap dresses. There's something about a wrap dress that I find so effortlessly pretty and sophisticated. I kind of wish I had a wedding or something coming up because I feel like they are perfect for such an occasion but I guess you could wear them more casually too, even just for a trip to the beach with a sun hat! you could even wear your bikini underneath.

Zaful has such an amazing selection of wrap dresses but the floral print wrap maxi dress is a show stopper to me. Like, damn...all I need is that models tan and I could be killing it this summer, oh and for the sun to make an appearance, that would help too (let's face it that might not happen here in Ireland!) Seriously though, I am obsessed with that gorgeous pink floral print against the white, it's just so class and summery.

If your not such a big fan of pink maybe this navy floral v-neck maxi dress is more up your street. This one is a little more risque as the slit is further up and the dark colour makes it a little sexier than the white one. I could definitely see myself wearing this one on a night out on the the town during the summer months. Once again Zaful haven't failed with another gorgeous pattern, them lilac colours are just FAB!

Browsing through Zaful's dresses has made me fall in love with floral, maxis and wrap dresses. I'm definitely going to try to work up the confident to step outside my comfort zone and wear something similar this Spring/Summer. Who says you need to be tall for long dresses?!

 If you haven't checked out Zaful before you definitely should. It's got an amazing selection of all kinds of clothing and accessories at really affordable prices and shipping is free on orders over $30! Check out their social media for updates - Instagram, Twitter & Facebook.

I'm back | I've been struggling with life

2 Apr 2017

Hello everyone! Remember me? I can't believe I haven't written a blog post since the beginning of February. Truth being told I simply haven't felt inspired to. If I'm honest I haven't been feeling too inspired in many aspects of my life over the past couple of months. Life has been pretty tough for me since we last spoke.

One thing that has been a bit shitty is that my boyfriend and I broke up at the end of January. No regrets, I know it's the right decision for me and that he isn't the one, I deserve a lot better. But knowing all this makes the fact that I still feel sad about it now, in April, even worse. I just can't seem to shift the feeling of being let down. Every day I'm seeing friends glorious relationships online and wondering why my boyfriend couldn't have treated me the way theirs treat them. It makes me wonder what is wrong with me and why wasn't I deserving of being loved that way. 

Being single also has me feeling so lonely these past few months. I'm someone who loves being in a relationship. I enjoy having that one companion to confide in, do things and go places with. I hate not having 'a person'. The past couple of weeks I've been jumping on Tinder trying to find someone to fill that emptiness. I know it's not the best idea and that I should try to be happy on my own, and that I don't need a man blah blah blah. I'm pretty angry with myself for feeling like I need a man to be happy but you can't change the way you feel! 

As if my pathetic love life wasn't enough my work life has been in the dumps too. I'm not doing what I went to university for and so I feel like a failure and like I wasted time studying. I hate talking about this because I always try to stay positive and just be glad I have a job but if I'm to be brutally honest I really don't enjoy my job. It's not that it's too hard or the people I work with aren't mostly lovely. The problem is that it tires me out so much. I have no energy what so ever after 9 hours in work. This sucks because it means I don't have the energy to do anything I enjoy when I come home. I just get up, go to work, come home and plonk on the sofa until bed time. This is the reason I haven't been blogging, I just have nothing left in me after work. It stresses me out and fatigues me so much. 

Not doing anything but working and sleeping has me feeling so empty and unfulfilled. Most days I don't have the energy to do the things I love like going for a walk, taking photos, painting or blogging and hence I don't feel like me. I just feel like a robot. 

Last Thursday in work I felt so exhausted and stressed out by the end of the day that I had a panic attack and couldn't stop crying I had to go home an hour early. The only time I feel relaxed and like 'me' is at the weekend. I got some WellWoman supplements today and I'm hoping they will help me out with my energy problem because I really don't know what to do. 

I'm just so scared and anxious at the moment about my future because I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing with my life or where it is going. 

I'm sorry for the extremely moany post, a terrible re-introduction to blogging I know but writting is my therapy and this has helped clear my thoughts for me a little bit. 

If you have any advice for me I would really appreciate it! if you don't, maybe just let me know that I'm not the only one who is struggling with life, I think I need that reminder. 

Hopefully I sort my health and energy out and I feel motivated to blog a little more because blogging really is something I love and miss in my life. And I miss chatting to you guys!
