Autumn days 🍂 We’re so lucky to have such a beautiful park right on our doorstep. There’s nothing better than waking up, grabbing a coffee and heading out for an autumnal walk on a crisp Sunday morning. Feeling very grateful for cold but beautiful autumn days. There’s definitely something special about the light this time of year! 🍂
#ad Video quality as clear as that water 😍 We got so lucky with the weather up in Scotland during our Isle of Skye visit - I mean just look at this crystal clear water, that I captured on my @HuaweiMobileUK P40 Pro during our sea kayaking adventure! The 50MP camera captures the detail perfectly! 🌊 #VisionaryPhotography #P40Pro #LoveMyHuawei
Ne căsătorim! 💍 Te iubesc, @firescu_mihai 🤍
The most perfect moment. He planned it for Greece in July but we couldn’t travel because of my steroids. He planned it again for Venice but the Covid numbers were making the trip look too risky without worrying the whole time we might have to quarantine when we got back to the UK. So third time lucky, he planned it for Isle of Skye, and this time, knelt down in the sunshine at Neist Point, he finally got to ask me.
Postcards from Staithes ⛵️⚓️🥰 And braving the outside with my newly cropped head!
2020 has thrown a lot of curveballs my way but losing all my hair has been up there with the worst. I’m grateful that every day it seems to be coming back a bit more, but the experience has and continues to challenge me.
Since I started to rapidly lose hair back in April/May, I’ve tried to conserve whatever I had for as long as I could. And on Friday I finally decided to brave shaving the wispy bits I had left. It felt scary to let go, but also kind of a relief and while my 25mm crop is still pretty patchy, I feel like I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
It’s been more than ten years since I’ve been in Staithes, and my life is so different now, but it’s still as pretty as I remember. The water was so calm and if we hadn’t planned a day of cycling, I was so ready to dive in. Guess I’ve not quite lost my bug for sea swims just yet! 🌊
Morning delivery from @shopbellwoods_ 🥰☕️ Since the pandemic turned our lives upside down I’ve been trying harder than ever to spend my money with local indie brands where I know it’s going to make a difference! And I absolutely love Nathalie’s curated selection of goodies at her new e-boutique lifestyle store, Bellwoods. I was planning just to order the latest @cerealmag but I couldn’t resist this @roakestudio envelope purse. I’ve been after a little coin purse for a while and I love that this is made from post production waste leather from tanneries in Italy, Spain and the UK. #supportsmallbusiness #shoplocal #supportlocalbusiness #shopsmallbusiness #newcastlelocalbusiness #northeastlocalbusiness
#[AD Gifted] Since lockdown started, I’ve been making more of an effort to get outdoors. And with no summer holiday on the horizon, it’s been fun to explore local bike rides and hikes capture them on my amazing @huaweimobileuk P40 Pro. The image stabilization is brilliant and the AI in the camera can even detect that I am surrounded by greenery #LoveMyHuawei #HuaweiP40Pro #VisionaryPhotography 🚲🌿
When life has gotten tough, lately my coping mechanism has been to focus on the things I should be grateful for. Sometimes it’s to live in such a beautiful place and have the wild beaches of Northumberland just a half hour drive away. Today I’m mostly thankful I was already a hat person before my alopecia stole all my hair. 😅👩🦲
We’ve spent the last few weekends, and evenings heading straight for the coast. Swimming in the sea has been such a big part of my attempt to heal my body and reduce the inflammation that’s stealing my hair. And if nothing else it brings me so much calm. The water can feel icy at times but we don’t mind and once we start kicking our legs, it feels incredible. So much so I never want to get out again. Even when attacked by jellyfish and with legs red and speckled with their stings. 🌊
Losing my hair over lockdown has forced so many changes. I really struggled at first, every day losing so much hair and having no treatment on hand to help. But now, armed with systemic steroids (that have brought so much growth back and lots of baby hairs that I’m super protective of), I’ve started to take a proactive approach to my health. We started the swimming 🏊♀️ , and running, we bought fitbits, we eat healthy, try to sleep better and wear spf every day. I mean, we are 30 now. But post lockdown I feel like we’re so much more 30 now. 😂😅 And in some ways I feel this whole ordeal has helped me accept a more adult approach. You know?
[AD Gifted] A little bit obsessed with my new set up. I have to admit, I didn’t realise how much I needed a pair of @huaweimobileuk FreeBuds3i until now. With both the highest quality noise reduction performance and wearing comfort, these little babies are so easy and comfortable to just pop in and pair up with my Huawei P40 Pro. The sound is crystal clear, and I love the smart charging case offers me charging on the go. Plus they’re built with wearing detection, meaning when I take them out, my music stops until I’m ready to pop them back in. #HuaweiFreeBuds3i #LoveMyHuawei #StayedConnected
