The weather has been so cold around here recently that I’m pretty sure summer is canceled this year. I’m actually pretty sure I haven’t gotten any proper wear out of my summer clothes in the 9 years I’ve been living in the UK. Maybe London was a bit better but Manchester is pretty grey and wet.
All of this serves to make holidays more exciting. Last year I was so desperate to get away that I didn’t put much effort into my appearance and I regretted it when I saw the pictures. I was most unhappy with my hair on/after the beach so I decided to have a think about some interesting hair styles that might also look good when my hair is wet and after my it has faded from the sun/sea. It’s really difficult to maintain light coloured hair in that sort of climate.
I recently managed to get my studio looking pretty much the way I want it, only to find out that I have to move again soon. The only thing that makes it bearable is that I have most of the furniture and equipment I need now and the next move will probably be easier.
I have a few posts to catch up on and with my birthday coming up I thought I’d start with wishlist type boards. I’m pretty sure my homeware choices will come as quite a shock after my wardrobe picks but that’s the way I like it.
