A Valentine’s day Lingerie Lookbook in collaboration with Primark
This 14th of February, I will be single – and that’s quite alright with me. I have a body, a brain and so many things I want to do this year I am practically bursting. A boyfriend right now isn’t a priority. Dating takes time, time I need to myself right now. To write my book, maybe learn some ballet, clock in my gym hours and just generally find the ease I escaped for so much of my early twenties. And if you do have a date, I salute you, love is everything, so hold to whoever you have, and hold them as close as your heart will allow. And on that note, let me introduce this year’s Valentine special, a lingerie something and a somewhat bizarre representation of the four sides of myself I have grown to celebrate as a 26 year old woman. And I hope you celebrate too, always, always celebrate yourself.
She reads books, she can speak another language – no, she doesn’t enjoy reality TV – she fills books with quotes instead. Her glasses match her jet black mascara – she’s a dork in expensive shoes, a semi-sophisticated hybrid, or so she likes to think…
Life is cloudy, a little confusing but oh so very pink. She drinks cheap champagne from coffee mugs, Stevie Nicks sings at 3 am when she should be asleep- there will be flowers in her room, wilting but pretty all the same.
She saves her money for silk pillowcases, spends Sundays over a Julia Child’s cookbook – she likes gingham and baskets of fruit and hearty loaves of bread.Weekends are always at home, with nothing but herself and whatever she bought at the market.
She enjoys the idea of romance, but not right now, not today, and certainly not tomorrow. Love is out there somewhere, she’s unsure of where or when or how – but when her heart is ready, she will follow it, somewhere, somehow, some place.
