Certain things automatically make you feel as though you've stepped into another time or place. Certain aromas take you back to your happiest memories and conjure thoughts of pure bliss. Thoughts that you had long forgotten about until a certain smell brought everything flooding back.

Whether you keep it in a drawer, as my mother did, or in your minds eye - It's likely we all have a special outfit or item of clothing that's an emotion - loaded link to a day or time that's forever stamped in your temporal lobe.

Happy Queens Birthday holiday! Perfect excuse for spending time with best friends, drinking and eating - getting belly aches from laughter, basking in the suns glow.
Hope you all had a beautiful long weekend...
