i thought that i'd been over my head for the last time.

Whether I've been on a holiday, had a weekend away or simply taken some time off, I always get that dreaded 'back to school' feeling the night before I return to work. Being someone who is often either very happy or sad and nothing in between (damn my overly emotional self!), I guess I just get a little upset about leaving a wonderful time behind and feel nervous about getting back into the swing of things. But I suppose that's normal, right? My time off this week has been just perfect - my mum and I moved into a new two bedroom flat this month (after living in a one bedroom flat for 21 years!) so we've been making it feel like a home. I've also started running again after giving up athletics when I was fifteen and have been spending lots of time with my family, boyfriend and friends. 
 So, here's a little list of things I'm going to do in order to make my first week back pretty lovely. I mean, you know what they say, if you write down your goals you're more likely to achieve them!
Make time for a cup of tea every morning before leaving my house, read a book on the overground to and from work, dress up and wear my favourite clothes every day, make the most of my lunch breaks, go out for a lovely dinner or two, have earlier nights with no internet an hour before bed, go for runs around my local park, treat myself to a hot chocolate/new lipstick/magazine if I fancy it, smile more, don't bring too much of my work home and take each day as it comes. I can do it!
How do you beat the back to work blues? Love, Jazz x

Tomorrow is my birthday and I'm honestly so excited to be turning 23. For the first time, this year, it feels like I'm not just celebrating turning a year older, but actually celebrating the start of an amazing future. Things are falling into place for me and I feel like I'm where I want to be with my confidence, outlook on life and my short term and long term goals. I couldn't be happier. I've still got lots to learn, experience and money to save (oh London, why are you so expensive?), but that's all part of the fun of 'growing up'. Of course I'll never be too old to watch High School Musical, eat Happy Meals or have the occasional messy bedroom, I'm just looking forward to doing that even more when I'm settled down in my own place with my favourite guy. 
I'd best be off, I've got less than twenty four hours to enjoy Taylor Swift's '22' to the full! Love Jazz x
A big thanks to Sofala for the amazing photos.
