You can still rock shorts in the winter, right?

Have an awesome weekend.

The Scottish Referendum

Today the people of Scotland decide if we are to become an independent country. Seeing as this is likely to be a once in a lifetime experience for me, I thought it'd only be right if I made a short post about it. I'm not going to say which way I'm voting (people who know me will probably know which side I'm on) and I'm not going to try to convince anyone of anything, I just wanted to commemorate this day.


The optimist, the pessimist, and the realist in me have all wrestled over this decision, and it's not one I take lightly.

I feel very blessed to live in such a beautiful country. Sure, it's cold and rainy, but there are so many breathtaking sights and such a rich history, it really is a great place to grow up. People travel from all over the world to see our coasts, lochs and castles, and these are the things I take for granted. 

I love England too. I've loved any time I've spent there, on various trips and holidays. I have only good things to say about the people I've met in England, many of whom I am proud to call friends. For two nations, so similar in culture, to have such great an outpour of hatred for each other (as has become clear over the past few months) is so disheartening.

Like many countries in Europe, there is poverty, inequality, and injustice on a daily basis in the UK. These things break my heart and I one day hope to live in a society which actively works to eliminate these issues. I grew up in a RAF town, and although I was not part of a RAF family, I know what it's like to have the military to be such an integral part of the community. I'm also a student, a taxpayer, and self-employed, so the financial stability of the country in which I live directly affects how I earn, save, and plan for the future. One thing's for sure, the country cannot continue as it is now if we are to have any hope of having a genuine, positive impact on the world. 

What I'm saying is, as everyone already knows, there are pros and cons for both sides, fears and hopes, losses and gains. I 'm thankful to have a say in this decision, and I hope that everyone who goes out to vote, does so with the best intentions, and stands up for what they believe in. No  matter which way it goes, I'm happy to have taken part in such an historic, and potentially life changing event. 

I hope you're all having a brilliant week.

Autumn Pinspiration

I've not been well, thus the lack of posts, and despite the fact that the weather has been lovely and warm, I've been tucked up under layers of cardigans, scarves and blankets. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the bright, dry weather, but at this point, I'm dreaming about the crunchy leaves of autumn.

Hopefully I'll be back into my regular posting schedule soon, I'm just a bit overwhelmed with work, college, and personal stuff just now.

However, I hope you're all well and have a brilliant weekend.
