Sunday is my favourite day of the week. It is both and end and a beginning and I always feel an overwhelming sense of peace on a Sunday. It's a day for reflection, recuperation and in some ways gratitude. I generally wake up at 8:30 on a Sunday morning, 9:00 if i'm feeling particularly tired and I spend my morning writing down the things that have made me happy this week and planning the things i will do the following week. I glance up at my pin-board and look at all the beautiful things there, postcards from the National Portrait Gallery from my visit in the Summer, A cheeky photo-booth moment with my darling sister, A very sweet handwritten letter from my dear friend Alexandra.. And I smile to myself ready to begin the day.
As it's my final year in Lincoln, i'm trying to explore every nook and cranny of this little cathedral city, appreciating the beautiful architecture, the autumnal plants, the little tea shops hidden away behind crumbling walls. During my first year here the beauty of this little city was clouded by the negativity and anger in the form of loneliness and i hated everything about Lincoln, now a few years later, i'm irrevocably in love with this place.
And of course, no exploration is complete without a quick "What-I'm-Wearing-In-This-Very-Cold-Weather-Picture"my blog is fashion based after all! I've found a new found love in the form of socks and hosiery, blame it on the weather, or my new found appreciation of colours other than black, but i'm quite addicted to buying socks and tights in almost every colour. So far i've stockpiled, greens, blues, purples, whites and even metallics which you'll see more and more of as the weather gets colder and colder.
And finally, there is nothing more satisfying than flicking through old copies of ELLE magazine in a warm bed with a Cinnamon and Apple scented Yankee Candle, before turning on my macbook to catch up with my favourite bloggers, Flora, Jazmine and Kristabel amongst many others.
As you can tell, this post is a little different to my usual ones and the reason for this is because i'm becoming a little bit disillusioned with fashion blogging, i'm not sure what it is, but i think with the rise and rise of PR relations and blogging, things are becoming a little too structured and repetitive if you know what I mean. I miss the whole posting for fun aspect, and i think it's easy to get caught up in the whole blogging world and feel down about your blog. I feel like my posts lately have been lacking personality and in some ways originality, it's simply been, "Here's what i'm wearing. Okay, bye", but when I started blogging, it was of whatever came to my mind, what I saw, what I made, what I did and what I wore and i'm resurrecting that idea. So this blog, alongside my love of clothes, will also feature plenty of other things and I hope you're as excited to read about them and I am in regards to writing about them.
Thank you to Flora for reigniting my passion for writing
