I'M BACK & Where I've Been ♡

Hey Guys,

Well doesn't this feel weird. It takes me back. 

If you all read my Life Update post (LINKED) and the intro of my May Favorites post, you probably would have got the gist. I didn't think this would be so hard to write but I've got a little hot flush! I feel a bit nervous actually. In case you aren't aware, my mum was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer, December last year (I spoke all about it in the linked posts). A few months back, I think it was early June, my mum had a chemotherapy consultation, which we both attended and this is where they explain everything about chemo. My mum was so emotional, she really didn't want to go through chemo, she knew what it entailed and the Doctor, kept pushing and I did too because it was the only point of survival in a sense, even though I knew she physically and mentally wasn't ready. But, we said, 'oh, once you have the first one, it'll get easier. Oh, we'll all be here for you', it carried on. Then my mums oncologist and Macmillan Nurse joined us and said, Shila, you aren't ready for Chemo, we're going to get you stronger and healthier before we even get an ounce of it in you. The oncologist, then sent my mum down to A&E, where we waited to get admitted into the ward.

Outfits Of The Month | May ♡

Hey Guys,

In the month of May, the weather was very dysfunctional, dressing for this type of weather proved very difficult! Monologue done. But seriously, we had super hot days and then days where it absolutely chucked it down and proper flooded a few places, annoying or what! Enough moaning, here are my favourite outfits!

May Favourites ♡

Hey Guys,
 
So it's been some time eh? Well from reading my life update post, you all probably know what's going on. I had to take a little break because life has gotten a bit much and I genuinely haven't found a minute to spare. My mums condition has gotten a lot worse, in the doctors words, she basically told us to prepare the family, basically saying my mum possibly won't have long left, providing she can't be strong enough for chemotherapy. Here's hoping she gains some strength and weight to be given chemotherapy and then there's hope she may get better. She's back in hospital and I arrive here before midday and leave around 8 in the night, see what I mean about having no time. I was actually scared because I thought I wouldn't be able to blog again but I've found myself mentally writing blog posts in my head whilst I brush my teeth and thought to myself, that's it, with whatever life is throwing at me, I will find a way. But please do bare with me because I am in the hospital from day till dawn and the connection isn't the best here. 
Right, now will all of that of the way, let's get on with a very delayed May favourites. It was a crazy, hectic and awful month, and although June has been a lot worse, I'm hoping and praying things perk up.

A Mooch Around London ♡


Hey Guys,
 
So a few weeks ago it was my mums birthday and my dad thought because she isn't so well and is starting chemotherapy soon, lets take her on a little adventure around central London, so that's exactly what we did! If you follow me on snap chat, you probably got bored of all of the London pictures, but hey twas a good day. So as I was taking all these pictures I thought to myself, why don't I just take them for a blog post and so I did, this post is more of a photo diary but hey, it was the hottest day in London, what can I say, I couldn't help myself!

Oh Cancer | Life Update ♡

Hey Guys,
 
I've been wanting to write a life update post for quite some time now, genuinely since January but every time I came to write it, I felt pressured and it wasn't Natural and I knew then, forcing such a personal post isn't the best thing. I still feel nervous in publishing this post but I know I'll feel more at ease once its done.

One Store, One Outfit | May ♡


Hey Guys,
 
So today, I've got May's One Store, One Outfit! And this months store is Pretty Little Thing, I'm not going to lie, I have never brought anything from PLT but I casually found the store whilst browsing google and a few of their items caught my eye. I had to stop myself from going a little cray, so I made it my entire mission just to buy a dress and a pair of heels. I opted for a classic little black dress with a trendy twist, its not what I thought it would look like because I thought it would be of a shorter cut and a little more fitted but hey, it still looks alright, I think haha ...






Heels: I couldn't find a link!
 
I'll see ya on Thursday for a little life update ☺
