Journey to self love ♡

I've taken some time to reflect on everything bleh that has happened to me this year so far (6 & 1/2 year break-up, moving back home, saying goodbye to a beloved pet, career & money struggles..) and I've decided, you know what I need to do? I need to start learning to love myself as the beautiful, strong, kindhearted human being that I am. Noting back to my depression and anxiety blog post, a couple more things happened which really left me questioning my self-worth. I'll admit, I was in a bad place a few weeks ago, however, from the beginning of May, I've been taking baby steps and I've felt myself grow stronger a little more each day and I'm so proud of myself for that. 

I'm happy to announce that I have made a little plan for myself to help get me back on my feet. My dream career is to become a professional makeup artist and I WILL chase and achieve that dream, I'm not going to let myself down. I'm enrolling at a college to do a Level 2 Award in Makeup course this September and I'm super excited. Once I achieve my certificate, I will continue practicing at home to help progress my portfolio and gain a variety of clients, I will then advance onto level 3 when I'm ready.

On Saturday, my brother's lovely girlfriend Joleen took me out and treated me to cake and milkshake at Patisserie Valerie. I'd been wanting to try something from there for ages! :)

The exterior and interior of the café is just so incredibly gorgeous with all the fancy chandeliers and sophisticated atmosphere. I must admit, I felt a bit out of place, lol. They have so many yummy cakes and drinks to choose from. I ended up ordering their strawberry gateau and a banana milkshake, whilst Joleen got a lemon cheesecake and a cappuccino. I wish I liked coffee but I'm more of a green tea person. I've been really enjoying Heath & Heather's green manuka honey tea, it's so light and refreshing.
