Whoah, how fast is this year going?? Ever since I got back from my Philippines holiday I've been flat out, busy with fulltime work, events and juggling a social life and downtime in between. The weekdays have begun to blur in with the weekends, that I can't remember when I last got a decent 8-hour sleep or visited the gym. (massive sad face!!) For those who follow me on Twitter, you may have seen I had to leave work early on Friday due to coming down with the flu. With my head feeling like it was going to explode, I dropped everything, cancel plans and promised myself to not leave my bed until I was feeling better. What I've learned (in the hard way!) of living a busy life, is to actually  "listen to your body" and not push it. I don't know whether the massive serving of fruit, vitamin C and fluids helped me in a speedy recovery, but I definitely feel a lot better than before. This episode reminded me that I should not bite off more than I can chew and to reassess what my priorities really are. Life gets busy, but you have to remember - YOU can be the one in control if you let yourself be!

So, what has been keeping me busy? Well, here's a bunch of snaps I've taken across the month of June, some you may have seen on Instagram and some you haven't. All in all, a little glimpse of my adventures and personal sights that haven't made it onto the blog yet.

Even though I feel better, I've been cautious "listening to my body" and resting when need be. I hope everyone's weekend was better than mine? What did you guys get up to?

Today, I managed to shoot something really special coming your way later this week. I can drop one hint - GIVEAWAY! Yep, a giveaway and one I think you will really like.

Stay tuned.

  1. I love what you wore to Morgan's launch! LOVE! Gutted that I couldn't make it, I can't believe I had two other things to go to and just couldn't fit a third one! So jealous that everyone was there, feels like I missed out! Am jealous of what you brought back from The Philippines, can't wait to see you rocking them in warmer weather!
