Taking a Moment πŸ’›πŸ’™

πŸ’›πŸ’™ I just wanted to take a moment… because I feel genuine fear, not for myself - but for the state of the world - our world.

I recognise that most people don’t want to keep hearing or seeing about what’s going on between Putin and Ukraine on their social media, especially on a wedding account, but I feel it’s important for me not to bury my head in the sand and pretend on here as if nothing is happening. I feel entirely powerless, frustrated and emotionally exhausted, and then tremendously guilty for feeling this way, when I’ve just tucked my children safely into their beds and have my pooch snuggled up beside me.

And I will, tomorrow continue to post about hair and makeup and the lighter things in life. But it’s authentically me, to want express my thoughts and feelings, and I’m lucky to live in a place where I can, were I only have to be afraid of peoples options and not a threat to life for saying out loud when I feel something is unjust.

I don’t sit here and pretend to understand the who’s, the how’s and the whys, because I don’t know anything, not really. I just know how I feel. My knowledge on this subject is extremely limited; but I do feel it is also then my responsibility to myself and to those I then speak with, to try, to learn just a little more today, to hold a little more understanding than I did yesterday.

It's heartbreaking and completely beyond belief with what is happening in Ukraine and my heart goes out to those living and working in Ukraine, but also our friends, colleagues and clients here in the Uk, who have family and loved ones over there. We are praying for you πŸ™


It doesn't matter who you are, where you are from, or where you live. One world is what we have. Only one to share, with dignity, gratitude, love and respect.

We stand on the side of peace, democracy, freedom of expression and freedom of speech. Not forgetting to send love and strength to the Russian people who are standing against Putin and his war.
