Sometimes you have to take a deep breath, focus, get yourself into a positive mindset and say 'hey, I can do this'. Recently, that's what I've been trying to do more of. I want to achieve so much in life but I have no energy or inspiration to do so, which is no ones fault but my own. I'm looking at the Internet and waiting for something to inspire me when I should be inspiring myself, not sitting about waiting for it to happen by scrolling through Instagram at someone else's dreamy lifestyle. I decided it was time to do something and inspire myself to start getting out there and create, and what do you know, it worked! I've kicked myself up the arse and given in to feeling deafeted and like it's not worth the time.
When I hear the word vintage I think of pound symbols and sad looking bank accounts, but I know a place with retro pieces that we can certainly afford. Loot, which is located in the heart of Bristol (just next to the central bus station, if you're stopping by on public transport then you've got to pop in!) is an emporium of hand-picked gold dust from simpler times. They have a hefty amount of sports team sweaters, old school Levis and an unreal selection of band tees. I know, my idea of heaven, if only it was my personal closet!
It's incredible when something makes you feel good when you're stripped bare in front of a camera without a hint of skin smoothing Photoshop magic and no make-up artist to hand. These earrings make me feel that way, isn't that special? I feel so raw beside these intricate earrings that hang delicately next to me. It's awfully sexy when you can feel beautiful with nothing but the help of a piece of jewellery, although even more sexy with the help of nothing at all.
