Five days it’s a long time for me to go without a new post and I apologize for the lack of activity here on the blog lately. But since I’m experiencing what might be the busiest time of the year for me, filled with deadlines, projects, to-do lists, visits to the vet and so on, I can hardly find any time to relax, much less to go out and take pictures. I guess I just haven’t figured out the perfect way to balance it all yet, that’s why some days I manage to complete everything with success, while others I feel like the more I do, the farther I get from having it it all rounded. Does that even make sense to you?
After what seemed like a busy, busy week I finally found some free time today to get out and enjoy the little things I love, like an afternoon walk, the crisp air and the hot tea that makes this season extra special. As the city is getting ready to light up for Christmas, I just realized that my favorite time of the year is getting so close now. I remember the years when I would start the countdown to Christmas all the way from October, and I remember my excitement growing with every passing day. This year instead, the last three months flew by so quickly that I barely had time to catch up.
For once. Needless to say, I feel a whole lot more comfortable being a girlie girl, but from time to time I love to switch things up and play a little, especially with black and leather. I know I promised to post this on Monday, but my week started rather busy and by the time I finished with work, I just felt the need to lie in bed, watch my favorite shows and indulge in some cookies.
It has been a year since I have written my first sentence here on the blog! And just like many of the bloggers out there, I had no idea what it implied, I just needed a corner of my own to share my thoughts, my dreams, my likes, to make it pretty and inspiring. Throughout the year, my blog experienced some drastic changes as it went from being a celebrity fashion/outfit inspiration place, to a personal style blog. The transition wasn’t easy, especially for me, as I never thought I’ll get to the point of posting my own pictures here on the blog.
I was really on the fence about whether I should post this small set of pictures on the blog or not, since they weren’t exactly taken with this purpose in mind. The photos were actually shoot during my short trip home a couple of weeks ago, near a beautiful church, where we attended a beautiful ceremony for the wedding I was telling you guys about. Since I haven’t got the chance to take any new pictures this week (I blame the weather) I thought about sharing these photos instead.
Yes, I finally got to wear my beloved burgundy leather skirt the other evening and today I get to show you how I styled it. The pictures were taken in a bit of a rush, due to the fact that by the time we walked out the door it was already getting pretty dark outside. Quite frustrating if you ask me! Or, maybe I should move my blogging activities to sometime early in the morning. I would like to see that one happen.
From the moment Puss entered our lives, I knew right away it was going to become harder and harder to leave the happy house. I just love spending my time home, surrounded by my two favorite boys, playing around, cooking, reading, working, especially now when it’s getting colder and colder outside. Can you honestly blame me? But there are of course the days, when the weather is calling for a long walk, when I love drinking a coffee some place nice, take some pictures for the blog and just enjoy the little things. Today was one of those days.
