These guys. THESE GUUUUUUUUUYS. Never has a band upped the serotonin in my brain at the rate they do. Anyone who knows me will have heard me gush about how amazing they were at Reading last year - I spent the entire set dancing on my own in a bubble of pure joy.
p.s. I've noticed that the band have 5th September free in their diary so if Bestival feel like booking them, that would be a (desert island disco) dream...
Now, I'm not what you'd call a dedicated follower of fashion, and I still get disconcerted by Summer gear being paraded about when we're about to head into hibernation, but after seeing this Valentino pre-collection pop up on my feed (and a swift Google of what a 'pre-collection' was) I fell a little bit in love. What a lovely way to shoot the array of colours, no? And may I say, how very Elmer.

It's been almost 6 months since I abandoned the blog ship without a raft and almost drowned in the murky seas of life. (I started a new job and went from working from home 3 days a week to working in an office far away 5 days a week, which, to not be dramatic at all, almost finished me off. I gained a coffee addiction, childlike grumpiness and eye bags, and lost my mid-week social life.)
But now the summer's here, I've ditched my SAD and replaced it with morning sunlight, Bikram yoga and mindfulness meditation. Ommmmmmmm. This combo has given me the motivation to make the most of my little free time, and getting back into this blog is a product of that.
