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
Instagram vs Reality on Myrtos Beach (swipe to see the original image 👉🏼) . . . It was such a hot day so the sea was filled with people cooling down, luckily it was perfectly clear so you could see the little fish around your toes. Next time, I’m taking a snorkel 🤓 (and maybe a boat...) #myrtosbeach
Back home and ready to begin spamming my feed with my favourite shots from this wonderful island. Honestly, this was one of the most beautiful trips I’ve ever been on. I spent a lot of the time quite overwhelmed by it all! . . . One of the most anxious moments however was the drive down to this beach... the roads are so tiny and it winds down the cliff edge, parking was “exciting” to say the least... 😬 #myrtosbeach
How confusing is the weather at the moment?! During my walk here, I was sweating in 34C bright sunshine with no breeze. As soon as I got to the coast, the wind picked up, clouds rolled in, and regretted not bringing a coat... . . In other news, how beautiful! There were so menu stunning buildings in Rye that would slip perfectly onto a postcard ♥️ #visitengland
Stop waiting for someone and just do it! A big lesson I’ve learnt recently is how to be happy alone. I have fantastic friends, but I don’t NEED them to be by my side to allow me to have days out and experience new things. So I took a day trip out of London this weekend and explored the countryside. It was so nice to be by the sea and walk through a nature reserve completely alone, other than the odd photo I kept my phone in my pocket so that I could really take it in, and I loved it! However, the first thing anyone asked me was “Who were you with?” “Did you go alone?” - does it matter? Because it really shouldn’t. We shouldn’t be afraid of creating our own experiences and own happiness. I truly believe that in order to be happy in life overall, you should be comfortable on your own. Give it a try and let me know what you think 🙃 #visitengland
