Dear So and So: Weather & Stuff

Dear Weather,

Look at you go! You’re in full summer swing now! I am trying very hard not to complain about the heat but, please be aware that when you start hitting 30+ degrees I will be fighting a losing battle! My complaints in no way mean that I want you to cease being sunny and warm! Please continue!

Sweaty hugs,
Overheated but loving it!

Dear Noz & GiFi,

Thank you for having such random and interesting stuff in at such knock down prices! You have allowed me the opportunity to try Pukka tea for the first time ever…sadly it wasn’t so good, at least the flavour I picked wasn’t, but I’ll try it cold and give it another whirl. Also thanks for cheap Lindt chocolates and other general goodies!

Yours thankfully,
A happy shopper!



Dear France,

I am a woman. I have size 8-9 (42-43) feet. Why do you not stock any shoes that will fit me?

I do not want to wear masculine looking sandals, I want florals, or pinks, or cute decoration on them. Why does my large shoe size somehow equal not being entitled to nice shoes?

Annoyed, frustrated and apparently too big footed to wear pretty shoes.


Dear Me,

I know you are somewhat nervous (read: terrified) about the prospect of eating less in an effort to try to lose weight, and I know that you don’t think you can do it.
Please give it a try though, a real try, don’t be scared off, don’t panic if it starts working and freak out over the weight loss and then munch your way through everything in the house to put it back on again.
You need to do this. You want to do this. Ergo, you can do this.
Think positive. Keep noting down the good choices, the positives, and please don’t jump on the scales obsessively, no more than once a week.

Yours lovingly,
Hoping to be less overweight.


Dear Me (again),

It’s ok to not know who you are right now. It’s ok that you’re only starting to discover what you like and what you don’t. It’s ok to have short hair, and piercings, and to wear dresses and skirts, and lots of pink. It’s ok to define your own normal, to find what works for you, to express who you are on the inside on your outside.
Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re less of a woman for having, and loving, short hair. Don’t feel that wearing flat, comfy shoes makes you less feminine. Heels, clothes, hair, none of that makes a woman.
So express yourself, learn about yourself, discover yourself, create yourself. You can be whoever you want to be, but don’t forget to accept who you are too.

A little confused, but getting there.

    Oh the last point is so me right now! Well, most of them actually. I despise summer time. I’m a big woman and it’s just not comfortable in the heat. No-one wants a soggy cleavage. However your thoughts on defining yourself is exactly where I’m at. With the help of Pinterest and some down-time from work, I’m slowly rediscovering the things I love. Kawaii, pastel colors, victoriana – there’s just so much awesome! Keep doing what you’re doing and being the person you are. x
