If You Have A Voice, Speak.


 

As women, we have been silenced since long before I can remember. Female authors were encouraged to publish their work anonymously. Female artists have a harder time getting their work displayed in shows/ exhibitions. Especially black female artists. But I’ll save my thoughts on that for another time. If you have a voice, speak. Don't you know that your voice alone can raise up many. Don't you know that it forces existence itself to acknowledge you. Be the mouthpiece for the silenced ones. Speak, and you'll encourage those who are too frightened to use their voices. 
Don’t hesitate to speak out, for it is when you are brave that you will learn and  advance in life. Imagine what a difference you can make if you’d just ask those big bold questions. If you were not afraid to stand your ground.
As you speak, be the voice you believe we need in this world, and become the person you aspire to be. Speak up, say what you think, and dare to challenge the consensus. Use your voice, take that risk, and have the courage to believe in what you say. Even when people tell you authorise, stick to your vision. 
In spite of whatever may come against, persist.

Marbella

So I had never been to Marbella before, let alone Spain. But from my first ever visit, I can say that Marbella is beautiful. From the white buildings, to the blue waters, Marbella is truly something else. Definitely different to the UK anyway.






But back to the flight. It felt long. It was only about 2 hours 30 minutes, haha. We were literally transported from rainy England to sunny Spain. In the air, the sun was beaming extra bright but as we touched down, it was dark.





Our goal was to feel the sun (real sun, not fake UK sun) on our skin but this wasn't the case for the first few days we were there. I didn't catch any images of the monsoon rain, when it rained. It RAINED. But when it didn't rain, there was always a blue sky no matter how cold it was. I was one of those people who thought that it was always hot and sunny in Spain (my bad!) but we still had a great time which goes to show that the weather doesn't always have to be amazing for it to be a good time. 



On the last day however, Marbella graced us with the beautiful sun which was bitter sweet in the sense that we could finally enjoy warm weather but we also had to leave that day. Oh well, I'll definitely be back Marbella! Maybe in a sunnier month?

We stayed at the Marriott Marbella Beach Resort and it was honestly divine. We ended up staying in a villa too which was great because we had a kitchen where we could make our own food without having to rely on the hotel food.









Have you been to Marbella?

A Spring Outfit


Now that it has snowed in England and it is finally double digit weather, I think Spring is slowly but surely approaching. This is an outfit I've been wearing so many times it's actually unreal. What I think gives it that "Spring" aspect is not only the pastel blue/ mint colour of the jumper, but the airy smart black trousers. I'd wear the clothes with Converses if it's not raining and slightly warmer, and with Dr Martens if it's raining or slightly colder. This outfit (apart from the shoes) is entirely from a charity shop! It's amazing what you can find. Apparel doesn't have to be expensive for it to be good quality. Remember, an outfit doesn't have to feature floral print for it to be a spring outfit. It can be anything from the colour to the lightness/airiness of the fabric.
