‘A perfect start of a lazy day!’- I should have captioned this picture. Guess what though? I didn’t quite wake up like this. I’m wearing shitloads of makeup to cover ‘the morning after’ skin and I spent over an hour to make my hair look messy without making the rest of me look homeless. I didn’t even succeed. Moreover, as much as I adore my new pjs, I usually sleep in an old, baggy t-shirt which, (not surprisingly, taking into account the questionable morals of mine), perhaps doesn’t even belong to me. And despite my love for scones, crumpets and cross buns, my breakfast usually consists of a rushed cup of coffee and fruit that’s on its last legs and needs to be eaten. And I rarely have fresh flowers at home, and if I do, I tend to keep them in a vase (silly me!), not in bed on the tray.
I could go on like this forever but the main reason why I created this post is to kindly remind you: don’t trust everything you see. Don’t feel like you’re the only one who doesn’t have it all figured out. Fancy hotels, too pretty to eat brunches, flower walls, designer clothes casually taken on a hiking trip and size 0 friends raising a toast with Dom Perignon on a typical Friday night don’t necessarily mean that the person behind it has their shit together.
Here’s a shoutout to the wonderful ladies who made me fall in love with their feeds without sugar-coating everything so if you’re bored of perfection and want the actual connection with some flipping lovely human beings instead, go give them a follow! xx
This past week we made Hot Cross Buns. Cross buns is a traditional bun served on Good Friday in Britain which spread all over the world.. Its influence has made it become a staple in many West Indian households as well. It is baked on Good Friday and served with Cheese and Tea. .
