Sorry, did somebody say it’s autumn? 🍂👁🐻🍁 (might have been me ) by @alex_cameron
Looking at old @alex_cameron pictures is making me wistful for scarf weather... 🍂🧣 First day of autumn tomorrow (for us in the northern hemisphere ) and I have got back to school energy 🍏
It’s #worldsuicidepreventionday. This picture was taken in November last year and I have such mixed emotions looking back at it. Maybe you can tell or maybe you can’t, but I was so depressed. I didn’t post it, one because I really wasn’t thinking about Instagram, and two because I thought everyone would be able to tell. When I saw this picture at the time all I could see on my face was sadness. Sadness and a forced smile. Looking back at it today, I think it’s not that bad? Even I can’t really tell anymore. Takeaways? Firstly - people who look happy in pictures aren’t always okay. Talk to each other. Check in with your friends. Don’t be ashamed to admit when you are struggling. Secondly, and most importantly- I am not that sad now. If you are that sad today, please know that it won’t last forever. The world will wait for you. You will smile real smiles again. ♥️ #WSPD2019
This morning I recorded my piece for the audiobook version of It’s Not OK to Feel Blue (& Other Lies ) 💙 It was really odd hearing my own voice through the headphones as I read - and even more odd to sit in a booth with a (lovely ) stranger while talking about my mental health! But I guess I’d better get used to it since you’ll aaaaall be able to read it soon anyway. I was quite nervous about doing this part but I’m so glad I did. I’m really excited about this project. Thank you thank you to @scarcurtis for putting this whole collection together. I think it will help so many people feel less alone. You can pre-order the book now and it’s out on October 3rd! All proceeds from the book go to support @giveusashoutinsta who offer UK text support to people experiencing a crisis 💬 Or if you prefer the audiobook then you’ll hear what I recorded today! #oktofeelblue
Got all excited about wearing a jacket last week didn’t I. What a FOOL. #sweat
got the memo 👯♀️

Bella Italia 🇮🇹 this cove was *so* beautiful... however there were ten of us and we didn’t arrive until lunchtime - it was 35+ degrees, there was no space near big enough to park a minibus, not enough room left to sit down and zero hope of any shade. So we drove around for a bit, took a picture of it and then turned around and went straight back to the house to cool off 🙃 The bits you don’t see on the grid! Something to remember when scrolling this time of year #realholidays
Et voila! A non-bikini-pic bikini-pic. Makes total sense? I thought so.
Only posting old pics until this heatwave is over. You don’t wanna see me right now.
I did self care today and it looked like 1. unglam injection appointment 2. therapy 3. endless introspection via text ( @chloeburcham 👋🏻 ) It’s not a face mask or a bubble bath but it was me looking after me - it all counts even if it’s just brushing your daaamn teeth. What did you do for you today?

I am not here. I’m eating a solero on the sofa. Tell me something cheerful 💬 Trousers gifted (ty @asos ! ) I’ve always been self conscious about wearing light coloured trousers because they’re less “flattering” but goodbye to that energy in 2019!!!
Just me displaying my natural athleticism on holiday 🚣♀️☀️
FOUR. BLOODY. YEARS. Who’da thunk it ♥️ @michalmlynowski

“What is up with Miss Hawaiian Tropic??” Honestly can’t believe I lasted this long without making that reference. What a dream. Seriously though, thanks for following along with me and my sun care chat this week! It makes sense to people when I talk lots about sun cream because I’m so very, conspicuously pale - but it’s a dangerous misconception that only people with fair skin need to use SPF. No matter your skin tone you are still susceptible to UV - so I hope I might have jogged some memories in stocking up for summer! Our skin is the largest organ we have so we’d better protect it ♥️ @hawaiiant_uk #50YearsOfAloha #presstrip
An actual candid of me by @aimeekriskros - dipped out of the midday sun for a while to top up sun cream and... do my daily sudoku puzzle. Yes I am that cool, hello! Another thing I do every day is wear SPF 50 on my face - when summer rolls on and sleeves roll up, or I’m in a hotter place, I get back into the routine of a full on body application. I’m a @hawaiiant_uk silk hydration convert #50YearsOfAloha #presstrip
A lovely evening with @trekstock to mark the charity’s 10th anniversary - dinner at @34restaurant to support the 34 young adults diagnosed with cancer each day in the UK #forthe34
Look at me in my happy place. Topped up the old vitamin sea today 🌊 keeping up my SPF all the while OBVS. When it’s breezy the sun doesn’t feel as strong, but it’s important to remember to reapply your sun cream every two hours to get the best protection. I’ve been using @hawaiiant_uk silk hydration factor 50, which smells like a summery moisturiser - making reapplication a whoooole lot more enjoyable #50YearsOfAloha #presstrip
Springtiiime! Still wearing a jumper and jacket... but neither of them are black. I had such a quiet weekend by myself and didn’t want to do anything. Felt a bit weird and was analysing myself being antisocial but think I needed the time to recharge my batteries 🔋 needed to please my introverted side before a hen do this weekend which I am now BUZZING FOR 💍♥️ • Jeans were gifted and sunglasses are my ride or die from the #gemmastylesxkenmarkeyewear collection so #ad
Posting pictures of old hair because I’m sat in the hairdressers getting not-this-hair... why is that the time your old style suddenly looks the best 🍋
Just me and a mountain of inadvisable evening caffeine ☕️ I actually don’t drink regular coffee anymore, only decaf, because it makes me too anxious - but somehow in a martini it doesn’t count...
BE NICE ✨ if you want more kindness in the world you’d bloody better put some in it yourself ✌🏻
Happy Mother’s Day to this one ♥️ thanks for being my friend ♥️ always use your best plates (and Stevie Nicks the shit out of it ) xxxxxxxxx
I don’t think I would have picked such an ostentatious jacket but now I’ve seen it mocked up... 🧐✨ edit by @delicateedits (thank you! )
I’m not advocating it but I have limited memory of this being taken, so please excuse me
