#2 Life as we know it…


Can’t believe it’s been three weeks! As ever, a crazy little thing called Life got in the way. Plus I got stuck in a bit of a rut where I didn’t feel like myself for a while - I was drained emotionally, physically and mentally. I had holiday I needed to take before the end of June so I headed out of London for while. It was just what I needed. Lots of photos to share with you lovely lot another time!

I am now feeling much better and have a new lease of life. At times like these I tend to isolate myself away from other people. I learnt the hard way that being alone doesn’t help. More recently I’ve surrounded myself with friends and have been reminded that good friends are there to support you - not judge. There have been meals; there have been cocktails; there have been laughs; cupcakes; walks in the park and a cinema trip (The Dictator if you’re interested). I even dragged myself out to the shops (I know there’s something wrong with me when I don’t want to shop!):


I’d been eyeing up this Topshop backpack for ages now but convinced myself that I didn’t really need it. I resisted temptation but in typical Lucy fashion, couldn’t stop thinking about it and then buckled! And just my luck… my local branch and Topshop.com stopped stocking it around this time! Sad times. When I spotted it the other day in another branch, I didn’t think twice.

On that very same day I found this beaut in the Miss Selfridge sale:



I never thought I would ever buy a crop top – the thought of baring my midriff in public horrifies me – but I felt that the long fringing was my proverbial knight in shining armour! Paired with denim cut offs and my new backpack, I feel festival ready. Some of us are looking into going to Reading festival this year – fingers crossed!

If all goes well, I should be heading to Meat Liquor this week. Some people have posted about it on their blogs and the burgers there look amazing!

    1. Thanks Josie! Think I'm going to look at making trips away a regular(ish) thing where possible. Sometimes it's nice to have a change of scenery :) x x

  2. Loving the top and the backpack is perfection. I had a look for the kimono at work and there was 2 left if you have a House of Fraser local to you might be worth a look xoxo

    1. I agree. Alone time is needed once in a while - but you can't stay alone for too long, you need to mix it up occasionally. Thanks Joyce x x

  5. I hope your ok lovely and are feeling better for your little break! Backpack looks lush, I'm hopefully going to Reading festival as well, not sure if I can though... About the ombré top, I'm not sure if they still have it. I have the pink Link pink version which I haven't really worn and am planning on selling so let me know if you're interested! xx

    1. Thank you, lovely! :) I'm feeling much better - just don't think this miserable weather was helping much! I'd love to go to Reading but it's been soooo difficult chasing people up and getting stuff organised... it's looking quite unlikely unfortunately :( Festival wise, I feel like I'm constantly saying "oh well, there's always next year!!" x x

  7. I've been eyeing that backpack as well! I really like it, but I probably wouldn't wear it as much if I got it, so I have to stay away from it. :D
