I am alive... but not too well...
Hi everyone! I hope you are all well!
It feels like a life time ago since I last blogged, but I have a good excuse!
After what was months of suffering from laringitis, an ear infection, (which I suspect has returned, btw), loss of my voice and vertigo, I then get an extremely nasty and painful dose of Plantar Fasciitis in my left foot, which is why I am curently getting about on crutches. It´s apparently one of the most common foot problems out there, but it seems like nobody except doctors has ever heard of it. Don´t worry, I don´t plan to bore you with an explanation of what it is. However, if you are curious, you can find out more about what and why, here and here; and here you can watch/listen to one young woman´s testimonial of her experience with Plantar Fasciitis. From what I have read, it´s most commonly caused by, (amongst other things), walking/running too much, wearing shoes which are too flat/too high and being overweight - and I am guilty of all three! Tut-tut! I had an MRI scan done a few days ago, and I am going to collect the results later today so that tommorow my doctor can see exactly what´s going on in my foot. The not-so-nice thing is, that he - the doctor - said he thought it had got "complicated" when I last saw him, hence why now I also have sharp shooting pain that runs up my leg, thigh and hip, and a very sore knee that gets stiff. Fingers crossed he won´t have to deliver too much bad news tommorow! - I´m petrified that he might tell me that he will need to operate on my foot!
Wish me luck!
Moving on to slightly more pleasant topics, I have been itching to show you guys this top I got from H&M a few weeks back. I sort of grabbed if off the rail out of curiosity more than because I actually liked it, and when I tried it on, I thought it was perfect! I can think of so many different ways to wear this top!
I also got my hair cut recently...
I had lots of length chopped off to "cure it" of all the burnt ends, but I can´t say I´m overly happy with it being so short. If I am completely honest, I feel ugly and like I have lost a huge chunk of my femininity! The plan had been to cut it short and leave it curly in a big hair way, but my hair just kind of shrivels up when it´s left curly, so I feel the need to straighten it in order to avoid looking like a clown!
I wore the outfit you can see in these photos to work before the easter holidays. At the time, the tempertaures had really risen a lot, so the outfit was perfect! I felt cute, got lots of compliments for the blouse, and didn´t melt away under the hot spanish sun! I accessorized with my Owl neclace from Sfera. I consider it to be one of my most extravagant necklaces, and also one of my favourites!
The short jeans are from H&M´s BIB sectionm, as their size 46 trousers (and unelasticated skirts) are generally too small me (unlike H&M´s size 44-46 tops).
My next post will be an Igigi by Julia Raquel Dress Review, and an OOTD post from over the weekend, so please make sure to check those out!
