If you think that taking an hour or two out of my own schedule just to work on myself means I’m vain, then so be it. Vanity, in this case, is therefore time well spent. I’m thrilled, looking at perfection in progress, it makes me feel good. I take pride in the way I look, in what I wear, in what I do. Some people call it self care, others think it an indulgence. Whatever it’s called, it’s important for my mental wellbeing. I’ve never felt the need to justify why looking after me is good for me. Pride hasn’t got to be to our detriment, it can be our strength. I’m humble, but I accept that needs an element of vanity as the foundation. You can’t look this good and not have it that way. It is the perfect fusion. My clothes are a representation of me and right now I love that lavender is in fashion. Right now, in such a profound way, we are being encouraged to just be ourselves. I hear that message and I embrace it. People spend so long worried about whether they should or shouldn’t wear this or whether they’ll look good in that, I don’t, life is too short, let’s live it. There is nothing quite like a floral shirt and some lush trousers with a draw chord, exposing those ankles that i spent 10 minutes moisturising! They’re shiny and cool, i can enjoy them, why not let others enjoy them too? It’s spring time and I’m prepping for summer, grab that wine glass and join me!
