A couple of weeks ago I was invited to take part in a project that I'd been admiring on YouTube called moveit, a "Humans Of New York"-esque lookbook that focused on showcasing real people and their style. I was pretty excited about taking part, and now that my video is live I'm totally amazed by how it turned out!

This little textured jacket from Sainsbury's Tu Clothing range has been so easy to throw on for those rare occasions when I actually leave my house. It's the perfect mix between casual and dressy, making it my go to on the days that it isn't raining - which are sadly few and far between at the moment! The weather has taken a total turn recently and it's horrible. I've been in full on hibernation mode - with plenty of snacks of course - and only leaving the house when really necessary.

In a way, I guess it's kind of lucky that I'm going in for surgery tomorrow! It's the perfect excuse to lie in bed doing nothing but watch Netflix and snooze the days away. I don't talk about my health too much on my blog, maybe I will in the future, but I'm really hoping this surgery will be kind of life changing. It sounds odd to say, but it would just be nice to feel a bit more normal. I've got some content scheduled so it won't be completely quiet on here whilst I'm recuperating, but I'm going to try stay away from the temptation of whiling away the hours on my laptop in favour of some proper rest and relaxation.

I'm not going to pretend I'm not scared about tomorrow. I think surgery will always be a worrying thing, but I'm trying my very best to see the silver linings. I'm lucky that this is an option for me, and although I've been waiting such a long time for proper answers or actions, it's happening now. It just goes to show that things do get better!

I'll see you on the flipside ;)
