Blooming El



I'm bringing you this Wonderful Wednesday from the comfort of my warm and cosy bed. G is next to me and we're having a little jam session. He bought a new phone this week and has free Deezer for three months, I'm enjoying his little playlist - well some of it, half of the songs I have never even heard of!

Anyway, shall we get down to it?


Mutual Feelings

I had a little bit of an emotional evening on Saturday. Loneliness is not something people of my age should experience but unfortunately, we do. Well at least I do. I am guilty of not making enough effort with the friends I do have and I don't put myself in situations where I could potentially make new friends either (paranoia and lack of confidence really isn't a great friend magnet).

However, after finally arranging a breakfast date with one of my best pals Christine, I discovered that she too felt kinda the same way. It's always nice to feel like you're not the only one having certain thoughts or experiencing certain things.

This didn't give me those warm, fuzzy feelings but I did feel a little relieved, like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders.

The Girl Gang

More specifically, the Girl Gang chat on Monday. Jemma hosted a rather brilliant chat about body confidence. It was so lovely to see people complimenting themselves and others. Confidence is such a big issue amongst many men and women, we need to learn to love what we have and compliment ourselves more often. 

The Perfect Blouse

Oh Florence and Fred, you really are just hitting every single clothing spot right now aren't you? As if the grey and rose gold striped shirt wasn't enough, you had to force my hand on your clothing rail again. On Sunday, I was doing my usual manic dash around Tesco, trying to pick up some bits for my lunch, when I spotted the mother of all blouses. Without even hesitating, I flicked the hangers to find my size and shoved it in my trolley. I know you want to see how pretty it is and you can do so here. Uhhhh, those florals.

Closet Cleaning

I have been putting off tidying my closet for a very long time. I don't have a door on it so it's not like I can just hide the mess. It's there when I choose an outfit, when I turn over to fall asleep. There's just no escaping the mess! 

On Saturday, I thought it was about time I tackled it. I put on some tunes, made myself comfy on my bedroom floor and just took everything out. Pillows that were no longer in use, a facial sauna that has only been taken out of the box once, clothes that, as hard as I may convince myself otherwise, will never be worn again. There are still a LOT of things in the closet but those things are now all neatly arranged. Ahhhh, it really is true what they say - tidy home, tidy mind. 

P.S. I'm selling a few of my clothes on Depop. A lot of them have only been worn once, I'd love it if you could give them a new home! 

That's all for this week! How has your week been? Don't forget to share your lovely #wonderfulwednesday moments with myself and the rest of the gang* on Twitter
