Paisley & Gold

This was our last day in Cyprus, but one of my favourite moments of the holiday. We spent the morning by the pool in the complex, Boyfriend and I played pool volleyball, we had breakfast on the balcony and then we got all packed up to head to Cape Greco before having dinner on the way to the airport.

Cape Greco is a happy place. It’s almost completely untouched. We drove down there along a dusty road, passed a lone bus stop and a scattering of folk wandering down the long path to the sea. When we got to the edge of the rocks on foot there was a small group, snorkling in the bay. The odd article of clothing left where it fell.

I felt really peaceful there.

This holiday taught me a few things; That it’s OK to stop. That it’s OK to do nothing. It reminded me that there is beauty and a whole world out there, a feeling that inspires me to travel every day. Some day I’m gonna see that world. But mostly it taught me that you can never run away from your problems, that as soon as you get back they’ll be waiting for you and if you never return you’ll find new ones. You can’t escape yourself, you can only make change.

I grabbed this entire outfit on the evening before we left for Cyprus. I went last minute bikini shopping which was, a quite upsetting, disaster. I’m very unhappy with my body right now and finding a bikini that reflects you, that is the right size and the right shape and support for you.. right at the end of the season? Not easy. I tried the leggings and tunic on in a bid to cheer myself up and it worked! Even more amazingly, the smaller size fit me in both items! I loved the colours in the tunic, they really screamed ‘late summer’ to me. When the sun is low in the sky and sprinkles everything with a warm, golden glow. I felt good in myself for the first time in a very long time.
