5 inch heels are not for the forest! :P

Hi everyone! In case you didn't notice, the last few posts were more on the sexy or glamorous side and I admit.. that's my favourite way of dressing. :)

Of course, as any sensible person knows, one cannot always be dressed like this.. places like the shopping mall, supermarket or the cinema require other outfits. And when I say other outfits.. I mean outfits that aren't too revealing or too formal. So sometimes, it's wiser to just wear a pair of jeans, a top and some sensible shoes.

Balancing on a rock in high heels,.. not as easy as it looks! :P

But yeah, you know me.. and I just don't seem to fully grasp the concept of sensible shoes, like when I was in walking around in a forest in Belgium. Or even more foolishly, trying to balance on a rock! :P

Julie, Iris and Tassia - Reservoir Dog walk

Even though photos and videos were made of this lovely afternoon in the forest, the main purpose of this was to chill, relax and unwind. And I like to relax with friends, so I did this this with my friends Julie and Iris. There is nothing better than a leisurely walk in nature to shed the stresses and craziness of a 40+ hours work week!

Obviously, posing still had to be done, though I did do my part by bringing (and using) my own camera, so that I could also take photos of a) my friends and b) the lovely surroundings. :)

Of course, with all that walking, sometimes.. a little rest was sometimes needed, especially when walking in 5 inch heels. Did I mention that I'm not always the most sensible girl?

We took a million photos and a couple of videos, but you'll just have to trust me.. it was a beautiful day with beautiful scenery and beautiful and lovely friends! We concluded the day by spending the evening in a restaurant at the edge of the forest.

Thanks for a great day, girls! :)

Yes, there is actually some video footage from this day. Again, not as spectacular as the the short dress or the pink dress video, but I think the video still gives a great impression of how wonderful that day was!

Tassia in the UK - Bath.. back after 5 years!

Alright, alright.. I know what you're all thinking.. enough with the UK holiday posts, already! It's almost autumn (or fall) and I'm still posting stuff from my holiday in May. This will be the last one.. I swear, but this is also the one UK holiday post that has a special place in my heart. :-)

You see.. back in May 2009, more than 5 years ago,.. I started going out into the public. Not just standing outside nervously for a quick pic after which I dove inside the house! Proper going to other cities by public transport.. shopping in stores.. going to bars. And by August 2009, I went on a small holiday to.. yes.. the UK. And during my time there.. I did dress.

So, being back in Bath after 5 years.. dressed up again, with more confidence,.. it was quite a memorable moment. And I did insist on getting a photo of me in front of Abbey Church,.. just like I did back in 2009. :-D

Of course, I did most of the things tourists would do. Sight-seeing, shopping.. and when I saw one of those typical red phone boxes.. I just had get a photo of myself in it. I think it matches well with my red leather jacket. :-P

As you can see in the photos, the weather that day was perfect and when it's sunny,.. I think Bath is at its most beautiful!

Even when the wind was blowing because of all the high buildings and churches.. it was possible to get some nice pictures. Of course, I once again was lucky that I was accompanied by a friend who was willing to take multiple shots of me. If it weren't for her.. or my other friends, making these blogposts (or stuff on Flickr, Facebook or YouTube).

Anyway, just wanted to make this a short and sweet little post about how after I revisited Bath all dressed up after 5 years. It's moments like these that make me pause and look at the journey I've taken. :)

Just like the previous UK posts, no videos.. so enjoy the videos with the short dress and pink dress. See ya next time! :)
