What a whirlwind of a weekend! The Peak District is quite a way to go for just one night. But when you’re invited to stay in an old toy shop on the boarders of the moor so you can visit your grandparents, it’s most certainly worth the trip! #peakdistrict . . . I’ve really enjoyed hearing my grandpa’s story’s today, it’s something we haven’t really spoken about much but I’m so glad I get the chance to hear his experience of living through WW2 as a young boy in Sheffield. I’m constantly learning so much about my family, it honestly amazes me how much I didn’t know! ♥️ #wewillremember
I’m currently on a train to Sheffield day dreaming as I stare out the window toward the most beautiful autumnal colours. The trees along my journey are showing all the shades of orange! Hopefully I can get out to the Peak District tomorrow and capture a photo or two (along with some much needed oxygen!) 🍁🍂 #autumnleaves
In my entire life, no one has successfully surprised me. Ever. I’m annoying like that, I figure things out. I notice the clues, I don’t mean to, but I always ruin it. That is until last week... This incredible woman had been plotting for MONTHS to surprise me whilst she was on the same side of the world for such a short time, and so many people were in on it 🤦🏼♀️ It means so much that she felt I was worth this effort. Thank you @emmacgibbs and everyone who kept the secret! #mybestfriendisbetterthanyours
I’m sorry Mr Weekend, did you not wish to hang around a little longer? 🤷🏼♀️ . . That was too speedy. But I did start my weekend in a fantastic tub filled with @lushcosmetics deliciousness! Top tip: You’ll be sparking for days after this bath bomb! I can’t remember the name of it, something like Christmas pearl? It had a bright blue centre and made my skin so soft! 💙 #weekendwellness
I just came out of an amazing yoga class at @fly_ldn which I feel has literally changed my mood for the week. . . I’ve had a very busy few weeks and haven’t been looking after myself. I’ve been eating poorly and haven’t moved my body enough at all meaning my mood has slumped and I’m tired/grumpy. Stepping into a studio where you can flow for 75 minutes to the backdrop of the ocean was exactly what I needed! It took me back to when I was most relaxed, when the sea was in my hair and sand in my toes. I’ve been very lucky this year, and now I’m feeling motivated to continue into the week knowing that I worked to make it happen. #motivationmonday . . Also. I’ve hesitated about posting bikini photos for so long! Worried what people will say/think. But I’m lucky to have found enough positive people to follow to fill my feed with more mentally healthy posts that I think I’m okay with this now. And it has to be said, @garethjobs is kind of okay with a camera...
This handsome chap is ONE today!! I’m going to go full @jvn but “CAN YOU BELIEVE!?” The last year has flown by! 😳 I already feel like such an incredibly proud auntie. He’s so smart and is learning so much so fast!! Happy birthday Rhodri!! I can’t wait to party with you on Saturday 🎁 🎈 #firstbirthday
Upcoming - Caption that has nothing to do with the image but hey ho, please read 🤷🏼♀️ (However, Kefalonia I miss you and your beautiful scenes!) . . In the adventures of Dominique today, a suited lady barges past a tourist clearly struggling with two suitcases on the stairs of a tube station with no lift. I offer a hand, carry the smaller piece of luggage for her, and I have never seen such a grateful face! She was so shocked. Tourists in this city aren’t used to people offering help for free, they’re used to pushing and shoving. Heck, we’re all used to this. And it makes me so sad! What happened to treating others as you’d like to be treated? (Not in a quoting the bible sense, but in a just being a nice normal person sense...) When did rude and obtuse become the new normal? I’m going to test myself, putting my phone in my bag/pocket more and see how many people I pass who could use a little helping hand. Join me? 😬 #londonlife . . And guess who still has a lot more photos from a 5 day trip to the sun to post... 😏 #kefalonia #fzeenretreat
