Solitude

February 9, 2019 1 min read

I’ve been spending a lot of time here, in my room at home, because anywhere else feels a bit too scary at the moment. Who’d have thought that throwing your old life into the fire, letting it burn up to create…

2019: The Year of ‘Brave’

January 1, 2019 2 min read

It’s the 1st. The first. The first day in a new year on this planet. God, I’m happy 2018 is over. It was a challenging one, last year. A challenging one and frustrating one and joyful one, all at the same…

  • Thank god for @hbensonx 💜
  • Sleepy baby sunbathing 💔 (she clawed me across the face earlier, do not let this cuteness fool you)
  • I (mostly) stopped wearing makeup months ago and it’s been a game changer. It sounds stupid, but when I see this in the mirror, it actually feels like my face now, rather than what I look like in between coats of foundation. Plus I get an extra 20 minutes of sleep every morning. Why didn’t I do this sooner?
  • Cancelling your hair appointment and using the money to buy a new lens instead = solid life decision.
  • Here’s my cute chubby face to tell you a couple of things: 1️⃣ I had the best weekend with @kimhigson being the most me I have ever been, watching some incredible live netball and finally seeing Avengers: Endgame (still processing), and 2️⃣ My photos from my dreamy trip to Sweden are all edited and live on my photo account @sophslens_, or you can swipe to see a few. Thanks @mathew_curran for snapping this one ☺️📸
  • Hot chocolate break with @mathew_curran before we hunt down more photo opportunities - and meatballs, obviously. 🇸🇪
  • My mum got me this lady cushion and I LOVE it
  • Gripping, poetic, and consistently lightbulb-inducing as it explores a world where women rise to power, I couldn’t get enough of this book. I haven’t read fiction in years, but this reminded me that I ought to, much more often.
  • From Icelandic winds to sunny Spanish rooftops; quite the climate change, but I’m not complaining ☀️ Swipe to see some of my favourite photos from Malaga so far, or I’ll be posting the full set over at @sophslens_ 📸
