the little mermaid

6th July 2015
I often talk of wanting to be a mermaid but the reality is I’ve thought about this long and hard since I was about 5 years old. From the first time I watched the The Little Mermaid I became enchanted with the very thought of it. You might think I’m crazy to have been so captivated by fantasy and quite rightly so. As someone whose painfully fearful of the Sea, all I ever wanted, and still want is to be as comfortable and at home in the water, as I feel when I’m next to it. I can sit for hours on end watching the waves come and go as if they were the worries I face daily. The sound of their presence washes over me like a blanket of calm and I can truly just be me in every insecure aspect of myself. I can reflect and understand my feelings, reactions and emotions to every scenario this strange world puts before me, I’m able to make sense of them and put them into an order that makes complete sense. I don’t feel this way anywhere else. I t’s like being stood at the end of the world with your only option being to face whats in front of you or drown.     This post was shot on the Olympus Pen EP-L7 & the 45mm Lens Shop The Post [show_shopthepost_widget id=”843661″] Images by the beautiful Liv from WhatOliviaDid

A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
Primrose & Snowdrops are on their way!
February is a very special month, it almost feels like the build up before the crescendo of spring and I can’t help but feel a flutter in my chest at the thought of what’s to come 🌱
