Writing this post sat in my garden with the summer sun beating down on my cheeks makes it a little more suited I suppose, I can shut my eyes and take myself back to last week...

Todays post is the first of many I snapped whilst on holiday in Cyprus. I won't lie, it was a weird holiday because it has been a weird few weeks. One weekend I was in Barcelona, the next in hospital and two days later in Cyprus! My life has been a bit all over the place but I think things are getting back on track and that's all I can ask for. 

Summer clothes are my favourite and this year I've been feeling all kinds of confident so I was super ready to get the holiday clothes out! Lil bandeaus are my staple of this summer, they match everything, are so comfy and you don't need to bother with a bra. Pairing a bandeau with a statement skirt like this is such a simple outfit but gives off the brightest, prettiest, summer vibes. Let's talk about my new baby, my Marc Jacobs Camera Bag! 
For my 19th Birthday I decided to treat myself as I'd been eyeing this bag up for a while and thought 
'You deserve this!'. It was a splurge but one well worth it as I have been wearing it none stop, it will definitely be highly featured over the next few posts as I can't get enough of it, I'm obsessed!

I went to Cyprus with my family to have a week of relaxation, doing nothing and get a bit of Cypriot sun in before summer truly begins. The days were spent lounging around, reading endless books and sipping a few too many cocktails. Usually I feel inspired to write after holidays, to tell the tales I have from my week away but after this holiday I don't. May be in a few days inspiration will come but for now I can't pretend it gave me much inspiration.

One thing I will say is that coming back from this holiday I do feel ready to push my life into new directions. My life has been on hold for a year and I'd accepted that because I'm ill and there is very little I can do to change that. I've decided now that regardless of my health, I want to branch out and grasp new life opportunities because I've been so stuck in this bubble for 12 months and it's driving me mad. I want to meet new people, have new experiences and grow as a person because I do feel I've gone nowhere and its kind of sad. I know I've overcome a lot in regards to my health and I know I've learnt a lot about myself in these 12 months but I need a change. 
Who knows what changes I'll make but my Cypriot start to summer made me ready to get going, you'll have to wait and see...
