Feeling The Chill
Blimey what a cold weekend we have had! Harry and I have been without a working boiler for over a week now and I resorted to going back to my Mum's at the weekend for a shower (of course not motivated by the little kitten residing there at all!) Despite a boiler-less life, last week was a lovely one. Even though work officially started up again the week before, last week felt like the proper beginning. I finally kicked myself back into gear of thinking about new content ideas, not putting off replying to emails, and did my first London trip of the year (god knows how many of those I got through last year). January is always a pretty miserable month. It's the first Winter month that feels like a bleak Winter, rather than a magical one - but, every year it comes and goes, every year we all plod through, and every year we make the most of it!
My January has certainly been brightened up by the HUGE amount of clothes and shoes I have amassed by online shopping like a thing possessed. I shared all of these with you in yesterday's video, and perhaps my favourite piece is this Topshop faux fur number. I urge you to go into your local Topshop and seek this out, even if it is just to give it a hug as it's the squishiest thing ever! I think if our boiler doesn't get fixed soon I will resort to wearing this in the house, and possibly even to bed. Another little January pick me up was getting my hair done - and I do realise this is now the third post I am sharing since having it done, and I have completely forgotten to mention it in the previous two! Breaking away from my usual routine of darker for Winter then back lighter for Summer, I decided to go for a lighter colour this time around. It's actually been over six months since I last had my hair coloured, so things were in desperate need of a refresh. I couldn't be happier with it either - it was one of those rare(ish) moments where you leave the hairdressers with exactly what you wanted, if not even better.
Most importantly, I am finally feeling inspired again after a post-Christmas slump. I have been so so pleased with the photos I have been sharing over the past week, and hope to continue to feel that way and find ways to improve them even more. Obvs all my new clothes are helping me out too of course, but I am also feeling inspired by what I write. You guys would be amazed at how much time I spend staring at an empty blog post thinking what the hell am I going to say today?! I don't have weighty topics to discuss each day, and sometimes I just want to leave it at a simple outfit description and be done with the whole thing. But recently I have been finding it easier to write, even if it's such a stream of consciousness like this post!
