LESSONS, BLESSINGS & INTUITION

SHOP THE POST

Well, well, well, I feel like it has been an age since I have been on here, my sincere apologies I have been dealing with ALOT. So much will be revealed in the coming few weeks and months, but honestly so many pivotal things have happened to me good and bad. So now I am taking time to step back and take a clear look at the lessons I have learnt and the blessings in all of it.

A quick bit of advice, I have come to realise that intution is a real thing, honestly there have been many times in the past few months, that something hasn’t ‘felt right’ or something needed to change dramatically, and I responded accordingly, and every time I responded (even when it seemed a little ‘crazy’) ย I dodged a number of big bullets! So I’m wondering is it just me? do you have those ‘feelings’ that make you respond in a knee jerk way? and does it turn our right? I’m keen to hear your thoughts but I honestly believe in it now!

Now ignoring my cryptic last paragraph! It feels good to be taking blog pictures again, I’ve been dealing with some body self esteem issue and you might have noticed I avoided Instagram and the blog for a number of weeks because I just didn’t feel ‘good’. Body image pressure is a real thing and even the strongest of us can find ourselves falling short, it’s especially hard when we are livining in a world people seem to think it’s ok to continually press on someones changing body shape. However I’m feeling better, and also I just missed posting, ย I’m as natural in front of the camera as I was before, but hopefully that will return. lol.

Finally shades of grey always make me feel like winter is getting closer and closer, definitely time to get ready!

    Beautiful! I hope everything is going well for you! I definitely have felt the self esteem issue lately with myself and also just not feeling “right” in my current situation. Heres to hoping we both end 2015 feeling ourselves and feeling fabulous.

  • Your hair and makeup look amazing in these pictures, don’t be so hard on yourself! But I totally know what you mean, everyone goes through those phases… Good to see you back in action!

    I am a HUGE fan. I love your honesty, your inner joy, and your style,. You seem like you would be a great friend. I, as all girls deal with body image issues but I do not have a blog or a active youtube channel, so it is not magnified by 100. Do not stop doing what you are doing, I look forward to your content soooo much. Next travel trip come to Tobago, (Trinidad and Tobago). I would looove to meet you. If i ever get to London I hope you do a meet and greet. I look forword to your next post. You always brighten my day.

No seriously I need to get a life because looking at your youtube videos is literally a part of my daily schedule and it feels like your family.LOL

  • Beautiful post. Yes totally get intuition because had I listened to it I would have avoided a lot of hassle. It is challenging to be in the public eye and always be “on”. As women we are so hard on ourselves and it doesn’t help when others aren’t being kind. Really glad that you’re back and love the look.

I used to be “thin” in the past just one year before and I took a lot of weight and now i don’t feel myself anymore but i’m loosing weight and stay strong no matter what ! We will always be under pressure sociallly physically ect we just have to deal with that stay confident without preoccupied “alll the time” abt what people think ! Your beautiful and really seems to be beautiful INSIde that is the most important in my opinion ๐Ÿ˜‰ Keep going what you do you’re doing great! My apologies for the mistakes i’m French xo

    I think you’re beautiful and always have been but now that you’re preggers you’re just shinning you look absolutely amaze ball. Lol. As I’m typing this The gospel Song I forgot the title but the lyrics ‘The look looks good on you. God has blessed you and you wear it well.’ Came to me & it’s true I’m glad you’re becoming more comfortable in your new body. All the best in your journey

    Patricia, you know, sometimes I feel like my state of health is more than I can handle, but then I look around and wipe my tears because many people go through so much in life that yours or mine, even though very significant to us, pales in comparison.
    You will have the moments when you do not feel at your best, but then tomorrow won’t be the same as today. Especially with all the body changes and hormonal changes you are going through at this time, it’s not easy, but it’s also a stage that will pass.
    When you feel down, and it will happen as we are humans froth with emotions and feelings, don’t dwell on it, think of the things that you should be grateful for–
    And always remember like you would always do, lend a hand to those you can, because life is quite fleeting and living through and for others is another meaningful way of living.

  • I adore your Youtube Channel, your Blog and the way you positioning yourself very classy and smart. Well, i love fur. I was wondering about your opinion regarding to all the furry accessories. From the Fashion Blogger point of view, would you recommend different furry stuff for this winter? I found a seller on Etsy and i like thing she does. But are they still trendy?
