Bermuda :: the Last Few Days

I wanted to pop the last few photos of our Bermuda trip up on here because they are so sunny and warm, and make me feel so happy. Sunshine and sand always makes me feel happy! I won't get into the details of what we got up to while we were there because it was mostly wedding planning, and no one likes a blog post about to-do lists.

But today it's sunny in London and I'm wearing a bodysuit from asos that is quite strappy and low-cut (it's this one) - I noticed as I was walking to work this morning that I felt a lot happier and a lot more free having a bit more of my skin exposed to the elements. Maybe it's because my vitamin D intake got a big boost or maybe it's because the sunshine is just a mood-boosting machine, but whatever the reason, it's an amazing feeling.

Wouldn't it be great to live somewhere where the sun shines a more often than not? For some of my favourite instagrammers it's already summer where they are (mostly in the US), and they often talk about going to the beach first thing in the morning for a swim, or walking around their back gardens bare-foot in the morning to make themselves feel a bit more grounded before they start their day. Wouldn't it be great if the UK was a bit more friendly for those of us who love the feel of the sun on our skin?

Don't get me wrong, I love the rain and London's moody, stormy, stay in doors wrapped in a blanket kind of weather. But I would love a bit more sun. And daily access to the beach? That's the dream.
