I won’t lie. These last few weeks/months have been tough. I am trying new treatments and making breakthroughs in therapy which is great…but usually, for me at least, it comes with the downside of me going through more intense periods of depression and anxiety. For awhile there I was so scared I was going to keep spiraling. The worry there is I have attempted suicide in the past. So it’s a very scary, very real fear that I might end up there again.
In the spirit of Coco Chanel and her wise words as seen HERE I am going to keep speaking about my passions. Vintage life style, my gorgeous and kitschy charm school books (which are piling up and more are on their way to me), being true to myself and also reminding people in a world of beautiful vintage bloggers with perfectly pincurled hair and immaculate lipstick and tiny waists and fabulous events there is me. Living a sort of vintage life, loving vintage clothes and trying to cope with living with a mental illness. In other words some days I look like this:
some most days I look like this
As I am getting back into a more positive frame of mind I have started exercising again. I also think I have found next months theme Looking after yourself! From a health (and mental health) and fitness perspective.
Please note this blog is a diet free zone. While I will post plenty of vintage advice from my books I will not be posting any of the dieting advice. This blog is also a size positive part of the web. While I know none of my lovely readers would say nasty things about others and their weights, I am asking you to refrain from being negative about yourself as well. If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say it. This includes yourself!
I am going to try to fit in a quick few posts on “Being Yourself” before the end of April (seriously, how the hell did it become April so fast?) before we jump headlong into May and looking after yourself.
Much love to you all…especially the lovely ladies of twitter who have been my cheersquad and support the last few weeks. You are all divine and I just adore you to bits!
