I Aint’t Gonna Live Forever, I just wanna live while I’m Alive

It’s been a full two weeks since my last outfit post, where have I been? Well, life has been pretty busy, standard blogger excuse I know. And, my photographer has been ill. A new one and genuine one. Not a dog ate my homework kinda excuse though, if my photos were printed I’m sure Seb would give them at least a little taste.

My photographer is my sister, you can find her here, she has a few health difficulties so isn’t always up for an outfit photoshoot. I had a pretty tough week myself with some bad news and two funerals. Needless to say we both could both do with some brightening up. 

It’s funny how things like this can focus your mind on what’s important. It’s easy to succumb to sadness and wrap yourself up in the darkness. But I know the friend I said goodbye to would be deeply disappointed in me if I did. Same for my sister, who’s in pain almost all the time but it doesn’t stop her getting on and living her life. At the end of the day that’s what we’re here for, to live. 

So, I put on a nice bright top for work on Friday, added zips for fun. The sun shown brightly in Glasgow and I made some plans with my sister. We took some photos before indulging in a few cocktails and a movie. Simple but fun, and exactly what was needed.

  1. such a lovely pink top! It looks really nice matched with those black pants and heels…very elegant.

    It is true that the best way to honour our friends that are no longer with us is to live our life fully…I do believe that.

    I’m sorry to hear you sister is in constant pain, I have an immune disease that has been active since I was diagnosed (Chron) so I can relate to her….but we must try not to let our health problems control our life to much. That is why I don’t like to talk about it, not because I’m ashamed or something but because I don’t want to give the energy and power to this horrible disease by talking about it, I rather prefer to concentrate on the positive things.

I love hearing from you, let me know what you think
