Spectacular Sunsets

Hello, you!

When I was a little girl, my mum always used to say to me ‘Wow, Sophie! Look at the sky!’ As a young child, I was fascinated by its colours, then I grew up, and at around age thirteen (when you think your parents are the most mortifying thing on earth) thought it was ‘silly’ and ‘uncool’ to be amazed by spectacular sunsets… Then I grew up a bit more and BECAME OBSESSED.

It’s no exaggeration to use the word ‘obsessed’, I’m lucky enough to have a west facing room and can regularly be heard shouting ‘Mum! Look at the sunset over the back of the neighbour’s house!’ It’s got to the point where my best friend genuinely once said ‘bloody hell, Soph, are you taking another photo of the sky?’

So, yes… Needless to say, I’m a big fan. The thing is, when I was ill, I never took the time to appreciate the sheer beauty of a great sunset, because that sort of thing just doesn’t cross your mind when you’re running on about 45 minutes sleep. Now, I make a conscious effort to appreciate the sky on fire. 


Now, I’m not going to start rocking a ‘#YOLO’ cap, but I do really believe that you should make the most of every day. Even if it’s the worst day, take one good thing from it – there’s always one, even if it’s tiny, like the sky looking pretty or buying yourself a packet of Skittles (red and purple ones are the best, guys). Taking one good thing from every day can make the biggest difference and sunset’s are a great way to do that… Unless, of course, it’s rainy (this is Britain, isn’t it?) BUT all the more reason to appreciate the fantastic ones!

So, notice the beautiful sunsets – I dare you. Some of them are too good to miss.

Stacks of love, 

Soph x
