As summer approaches, so does the urgent desire to have that “bikini bod” and the need to look “summer-time-fine”; so I am sure I’m not the only one who is eating healthier, detoxing and exercising more with the promise of feeling good!

Although I am yet to start (maybe) the completely green detox juices/smoothies, I have jumped on the green drink bandwagon- I’m just mixing it slightly more and cutting out the kale! I know, I know, its a superfood and all and probably one of the most vital ingredients but I can’t- It’s just tastes awful. I’ll stick to the spinach and banana for now thanks! #GoingGreen

When it’s June and still cold…

…If I’m honest, I don’t really know what else to say. Its ridiculous yet we have to deal with it, so I won’t rant on and on about “The Great British Weather”. To brighten up my cold and miserable grey days, I quite literally appear brighter. In a Zara favourite and classic Kenzo (jumper),this is my current situation; until further notice from the weathuer man.  I love my orange coat, I do, and even though it’s most definitely a winter coat; it’s perfect for these winter-like, so called “summer” months! #OrangeIsTheNewBlack.

Coming from Brazil where the merchandise is far less authentic, I went a little crazy when I got to Peru. From traditional stripped gringo trousers, the cutest fabric backpacks, alpaca jumpers, blankets, scarfs and socks to pretty patterned purses, quirky leather handbags and funky footwear; I’ve become obsessed. I mean how can I not? Everything is so awesome. The bright colours. The cool textiles. The unbelievably soft baby lama apparel. The unique patterns. The authentic essence. I love it all and I can not get enough.

So I’ve gone passed denial and reached acceptance now, because since landing in Peru I haven’t managed to walk through a single textiles market and not buy a thing. After holding back my shopping addiction for 10 weeks, I’ve well and truly had a relapse- now I have no control. So yes, I’ve become a market junkie.

I’m not quite sure why or how I’ve gone back to embracing my inner shopaholic; it’s not like I’ve been able to walk into Zara, Topshop or Selfridges in the past 3 months. Nevertheless, I now have two pieces of extra luggage filled with South American goodies and I can’t wait to get home and utilise them all. I’m actually quite looking forward to summer in the UK. With less than 3 weeks to go; bring it on!
