After a year of having no fringe or layers, I finally got my hair cut into choppy short layers with a side fringe again. I didn't realise how much having a decent cut affects my style and confidence, I assumed it was the length that defines me but it's actually the fringe just as much. Since my cut I've felt like my clothes look so much quirkier. Definitely going to try to maintain it better this time and be really clear on what I want when I go to the hairdressers.
I love this aspect of my job more than any other. I had a wonderful class today, and it was energising and rewarding. It was difficult material but together we got to the bottom of it and thought way beyond it. Of course there are also impossible classes too that drag and drag, but the key to getting through is enough prep. And I always prep!
I allowed myself a bit of a luxury purchase during the sale, in the form of a massive grey 100% cashmere stole from Warehouse. I think it's singlehandedly the best purchase I've ever made! I've had a successive series of colds and am travelling back and forth from Kent, Southampton and Surrey so much, and it's been a saviour: super-soft, super-warm, super-snuggly. It's rarely not around my neck, but luckily the grey looks good with everything.
My amazing present of Jo Malone's Rosewater and Vanilla has brought my fragrance wardrobe to a grand 4 bottles, the other three being Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb, Flowerbomb Extreme, and L'Occitane Honey and Lemon (discontinued, boo!) I do love my gourmand scents (all four above are practically edible) and this is the perfume equivalent of turkish delight, in all its fragrant, nutty and unctuous glory. It's a stunning winter scent, sweet, exotic and smoky and feels like luxury whenever I wear it. (I'd like some Turkish Delight and cocoa now please, scary wintry lady.)
After almost a month off, my mojo has definitely returned! I'm finding ways to shorten the time it takes me to write entries, so hopefully should be posting more often (and commenting when I can!)
Some exciting times ahead for the Rabbit, fingers crossed. A little daunting, but Rabbits hop over obstacles, don't they?!
I've had four colds in a row and a cough that's lasted six weeks. I genuinely have forgotten what it feels like to be well!
Things I Can't Control
Not a good thing for a control freak (or as I see it, someone who likes to be prepared). But I'm doing my best not to be too phased.
Trying To Make Everyone Happy
Is not always possible. But I really hate to disappoint, so this is very hard for me to come to terms with.
