i went shopping last night after work, and you know what.. retail therapy is the best kind of therapy, it makes you feel so much better! i hate those shopping trips where you can't find anything and you end up feeling like an ugly duckling. but yesterday was a successful trip, it felt good to buy clothes! i swapped the gorgeous peach blouse i bought from newlook (which was ripped and a button fell off) for this one with birds all over it.. which to be honest is far nicer and is alot better material, the other blouse felt quite tight and the material was so thin! plus this one is definitely more me!
i also bought these jeggins from river island which are VERY brave for me. i have never been able to wear normal fitting jeans or jeggings because i used to be so skinny that they would hang off my bum and thighs... but now that i'm back to a normal size with a bum and hips.. i can actually buy jeans that fit, and when i tried these on yesterday, i nearly cried with happiness! i've never owed a pair of really light jeans like these either as i normaly hide in dark colours, but i think this outfit just threw me into spring! honestly, feels good to appreciate myself again and to embrace what i have, because i've come to realise that being a bit bigger and having a more curvey frame is alot more attractive than looking like a skeleton. nobody wants to hold a skeleton, and it took love to teach me that. (bleugggghh) ye really.
i also bought some hair things to spuse up my dry hair and some orangey brown trousers from river island which i might wear tommorow...
tonight my friend lauren is coming round, going to cook a curry maybe? i really fancy one! i think curry is my favourite food and my goal this year is too learn how to make a a really tasty spicy one. i can do a pretty decent thai curry but thats not difficult.
song i'm totally loving at the moment: Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie xx – I'll Take Care Of U
