Let´s be honest, things have gotten a little out of hand, once again. I´ve bought at least fifteen swimsuits during the past six months. First I needed them for our trip abroad, then for my summer vacay and then it just snowballed from there. So lately I´ve been spending a lot of time online searching for the best ones.
The funny thing is that I used to dislike the whole idea of browsing and fitting swimsuits. I could write a book on which shops in Helsinki have the worst and the most disgusting fitting rooms (an honorable mention goes to Monki on Aleksanterinkatu). Recently, I have only been shopping online, so the issue with fitting rooms is solved for now, thank god!
Another thing I´ve been struggling with, has been seeing myself in a swimsuit. I ´ve always been really critical on myself. Way too critical if you ask people close to me. In order to get my head straight, I need a steady routine with exercise, diet and rest. If I don´t exercise, my diet is automatically terrible. In return, when I exercise, I eat healthier. It should be other way around, I know, but please tell that to my head. Maybe I´m getting older and wiser, since there are signs that I might get over this issue at some point.
I don´t know why I´m so much into swimwear all of a sudden, maybe it´s the warm summer that has gotten me going, who knows. All I know is now that I´m set with swimsuits, it´s time to move onto bikinis!
PS. If you know any dodgy fitting rooms, please give us a heads up and comment below!
