Comfortable & Happy Chunky Knit

Hi Readers, 
Things are pretty busy on my end with lots of exciting things happening behind the scenes, more will be revealed in due course. Even though this week didn't start off all that well (for me), it's always important to keep your eye on the end goal and work towards that. This applies to professional and personal situations equally, there are always bumps along the road, distractions which test your dedication and deviations on the path which pop up. However, while keeping your eye on the end prize, it's important to be open, not to close yourself down as you may just miss that soft knock of opportunity at the door. 
With Monday being National Woman's Day, today's post is dedicated to all women, young and old alike. Life throws us so many curve balls, and whilst we all experience different challenges, we are all faced with them throughout our lives. They may be small, they may be life changing, but it's important to strive to handle them with grace. Today I posted the following quote on Instagram:

"Girls compete with each other.
Women EMPOWER one another." 

It is so appropriate and unfortunately we are 'blessed' with many girls out there. I just hope that in due time the number of WOMEN will outnumber the girls, and we'll be able to teach, support and help each other instead of breaking each other down. There are too many toxic interactions, derogatory insinuations and energy sapping relationships draining your focus. If you find yourself in any of these situations, take a stand and make a change for the better... It can only start with you.

Today's post is all about comfort, being comfortable in your own skin, being brave to go make up free or even to make that small change towards a better and happier you. I love these oversized chunky knits (scored on the Forever New Sale), they are comfortable and warm, like a good friend. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love my denims, so I paired a fav t-shirt with even more comfortable sneakers.... 
Comfort. Make up free (only lip balm). Happy.
