Smiling through insecurities

26 May 2019


Hello,

Hope you have all been well. Recently, I have made small changes to my life such as diet changes, going to the gym and socialising more and now feel so much better - physically and mentally. It can be so easy to allow insecurities to cripple you and I am very guilty of that. It is also one of the reasons why I started blogging as I needed a space to be me. I wanted to discuss what my insecurities are - which is my weight. I know that I really hate the size that I am currently and I am allowed to do so, even if I hide it well. I know that I am an emotional eater and that when things are tough that I will eat. It is why although I have gone from a size 10 to 14 - I don't see that as the end of the world. It really took me a while to come to terms with that, being from a Nigerian background: I am constantly reminded of my size and compared to my slimmer sisters. I take those "you should lose weight, where did this weight come from or cut down on the yam" jabs weekly, but eventually it does eat away at you emotionally. I know that I will lose this weight but that that will take time. 

“Time is a created thing. To say 'I don't have time,' is like saying, 'I don't want to.”

My summer plans

21 May 2019

Hello,


Hope you have all been well,


I have recently been looking at what I am going to do this summer. In early June, I will be going to Nice to watch England Ladies play Scotland which I am very excited for. It will be for 2 days but I will definitely make the most of it. I would like to visit the Place Massena, Parc du Mont Boron and definitely Sephora. It will be a short trip but I cannot wait to explore the cuisine as I love French food likSalade Ni├žoise or Ratatouille. Furthermore, I was also thinking about going to Sicily again. Last year, my trip was cut short unexpectedly but this year I will definitely make the most of this trip. Sicily was beautiful but I can’t wait to have an adventure, take beautiful pictures and relax. I will do a blog post on what to pack on a short trip to Europe, what to do and what to eat.
