Weight!! So much weight… The struggle is real! I’ve gained a lot of weight the past few years. As embarrassing as this feels and is to me, it is the sorrowful truth. I didn’t gain it all over night but gradually over the past 7 years the numbers on the scale kept going up. It wasn’t that bad at the very beginning as everyone used to tell me I was “too skinny”, so I probably needed the first couple of kilos .. the rest just kept adding on.

I decided to go shopping the other day, after a very long time. I’ve been so good when it comes to purchasing clothes, make up, jewelry or shoes these days. Quite proud to be honest!

It’s been an absolute hectic few months since returning back from our honeymoon, which has led to meeting a lot of new interesting and different people. It’s become quite the norm these days to ask questions such as relationship status when you’re getting to know someone. Sometimes you don’t even need to ask, people with partners will start talking about them even if you don’t ask (can get too much at times). I’ve come across lots of singles saying that they are “happily single”. Which makes me wonder, is that a statement? Or is it something that makes them feel better? Are…
