Winter Blues

Happy (belated) Christmas to you all and a merry winter! I hope Santa spoiled you with gifts and love galore. You may have noticed I have been slightly absent over the December period so my blog is looking a little bare. Truth be told, December has been a bit of a rough month for me, beginning with me having my wisdom teeth removed and ending with a short but strong bout (check) of gastritis. In between being sick as a dog, I began a part-time job and crammed in seeing as many family members and friends as I could in the run-up to Christmas (this included a lot of travelling across the UK) so I really didn’t have any time to sit down at my laptop and write anything. Honestly, I have really missed writing and blogging but sometimes its does the mind and body good to take a little break. It might be a bit of a taboo subject but I always like to be honest, in reality, it can be quite difficult to maintain my blog when it doesn’t provide me with any income. In an ideal world I would be making some kind of profit for all the work I put in, which by the way is quite a lot, but as I don’t, it leaves little time to focus on blogging and more time spent in the money-making world.

Anyway, rant over, hopefully this year I will be able to create a decent balance between the two!

I am loving this navy blue winter coat from New Look right now. There is something about a long-length, straight-cut coat that makes a woman feel powerful, as if you’re about to head to your office in downtown Manhattan (is it just me, or do you feel the same?). I had my eye on it for some time but resisted he urge to buy it as I just knew that New Look would stick it on their winter sale racks in good time, and that they did!

Perfect for this winter weather (it is literally FREEZING here in London at the moment) and chic enough to go with anything, I think this will be in my wardrobe for a few years to come.
