Higher than heavens arms...

Well, here we go...you know what I am about to say. Another week has flown by! Sorry everyone, but you know I have to say this absolutely every week! I suppose the good thing about the way that time flies is the fact that the weekends come around so much quicker! The weather is great at the moment and I am hoping it lasts for the next few days as I am supposed to be going to Anglesey, and I am hoping to have a swim in the sea. I have not been swimming in the sea so far this year and I love it so much.
I was a bit naughty today and I went shopping after I had finished some work. Before going shopping in Liverpool I also treated myself to a solo lunch in one of my new favourite places, Amici. It was a delicious lunch and it gave me time to think. One of the greatest gifts in life is clarity and I really appreciate time to think and gain clarity on certain situations, in order to move forward in the right direction.
 I do not mind doing things by myself, even though some people find the idea of dining out alone quite daunting. To me, it is second nature. I have always been very independent and I actually like my own company, living in Germany and France during my degree also made me a lot more independent, because I had to do things by myself or not at all...
Now, I just take a book or my laptop with me if  I am eating or grabbing coffee alone and I find that it is a really enjoyable experience. Ultimately, I would rather go out alone than feel that I always need to have somebody accompanying me, as the reality is that friends or family might not always be free at the same times that I am.
It was a scorching afternoon and I just needed cheering up to be honest. The lunch and the shopping certainly did the trick. After all, they call it 'retail therapy' for a reason and I was determined that I would not start the weekend feeling down.
The sun is shining, it is the weekend and I have so much to be grateful for in life, but I guess we all get the blues sometimes.  Anyway, I did not buy that much, but I got a couple of cute things in Primark and then stopped off in Starbucks to write this post.
 What are you all up to this weekend? I treasure all of your lovely comments . Thank you all so much for reading these posts and for sharing your thoughts with me. I follow back my followers and I love to check out all your blogs so do not forget to leave a link!

Until next time, best wishes.

 Recent ootd: Primark maxi dress and cardigan, Forever 21 bag.


 Lunch at Amici, accompanied by 'The Lemon Grove'. I ordered my favourite lunch of a tuna melt jacket potato with a latte to drink ;p.

 Primark: tribal print playsuit £7 
(Sorry about my miserable face, I was too hot in the fitting room!) 
 Black super skinny high waist jeans £10. Chain strap black top £6
 Black ruffle detail jumpsuit £15
 Starbucks: Raspberry and Blackcurrant ice blend, yum! 


There was a parade going on through the city centre, I  am not sure what it was for, but there were lots of interesting costumes, puppets and music! The colour and vibrancy was really cheerful!

  3. Are you enjoying The Lemon Grove? I've seen it about, have heard a few things about it but am still unsure about reading it.

    Urgh! I could not be trying on clothes with the heat we've had in the UK of late! You picked up some great buys though.

  6. It's good that you're okay with hanging out on your own. When I'm feeling down I take myself to the city for food and a shop around too, perfect cure!

  10. I love jacket potatoes with tuna! Also, as much as I love a good shopping spree and lunch with my sister and/or friends, it's also one of my favourite ways to spend some alone time. Like you say, having some time to think is really precious.

  24. Ooohhh ♡ Liverpool.. I lived in Leeds for one year and I've been missing England so much.. and you know what? When I was in Leeds my fav afternoons were spent by myself, having a fast lunch at Gregg's or Bagels' and then having a look around my fav shops.. I love spending time with myself, it's so good to feel better and think clearly about everything.
