The Good Life Eatery. Sloane Avenue. I have wanted to eat at this little cafe for the longest time! It is located in Chelsea, just off of Kings Road but living in South East - I rarely get the chance to go. Recently Saff suggested that we go to the Saatchi Gallery - wasn't open :( - so I thought it was the perfect time to have a little bite. I was not disappointed, everything I ordered tasted delicious and it is so cute inside. Anyplace that names a smoothie as "Choc Norris" will always have a special part in my heart.
If you're still reading my blog - you might have noticed the huge hiatus since earlier this year. Recently I have just lost the will to do a lot of things, not just blogging. A lot of my passions just went straight out the window. Part of it comes from a lack of will and another part of it comes from exhaustion. Not that my life is excruciating tiring but I have been working a crazy amount lately (mostly to create funds for my upcoming trip to Japan). I haven't really stopped between work and shows....for a long time.
Unfortunately as my job requires a uniform - all my clothes became forgotten. Even on my days off I lost the will to put anything "nice" on opting instead for something cosy and definitely more boring. It was only recently a week or two ago, when I was painting my nails (we aren't allowed to have that at work either) that I realised just how much I had been neglecting my appearance. Not in the horrible not washing way but in the way I wasn't doing little things that used to make me feel nice. It seems really silly and definitely more narcissistic than I would like to admit - but even the small action of painting my nails made me feel more like me than I had in a long time.
The weirdest or the most frustrating thing is that I didn't even realise that I had been so.....I don't even know what....in a way just not me.
Now that I have noticed the not being me - I can change things. I am going to start doing more things for me. I miss my family, I miss my friends, I even miss my boyfriend with whom I live. Working six days out of the week is not how to do things aha.
So expect to see a lot more of me around these parts. Though I think I might take the focus off of outfits - though they will still make an appearance - and include more aspects of what I enjoy in life.
I want this space to be here for me when I'm older to look back and remember the good stuff. Ha, maybe even my children can look here and laugh with me.
Until my next post, Carmen.
