Three posts in one week? My productivity levels just went through the roof.
I've been working really hard keeping myself busy for the past few days, every time I stop I feel like I move right back to the start of the grieving process and I simply can't afford to do that, and Bertie wouldn't have wanted me to either.
I actually wore this last week, most of this weekend was spent in jeans and ratty t-shirts, and it is very strange to think that Bertie was here with me when these were being taken. It may seem like I am grieving excessively over a dog but he was also my companion for so many of my endeavours, everything has changed now that he is gone.
On a slightly more frivolous note, I've recently got into wearing jeans again. I started blogging originally because I wanted to move away from being a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. I felt like they made me look a lot younger than I am, but a blouse and nice shoes can make all the difference. I actually felt like a grown-up when I was wearing this, despite the newly purple hair.
I absolutely love the mews houses that are dotted all over the city centre in Edinburgh, but I never thought of using them as a backdrop until I read Cait's (another Edinburgh girl) latest blog post. The cobbles certainly caused some problems with my trusty tripod but in the end I think they worked out really nicely. I can't wait to use this location again, the best thing about it was all the painted doors, although with the number of people who cut through them I might try and convince someone to come along next time and act as photographer (any takers?)
In case anyone is interested I am wearing far too much Primark. The jeans and the socks are the only items I bought (Primark has some lovely Winter socks and tights on sale at the moment in case you want to stock up like I did), the blouse I managed to get in a swap with a friend, the blazer is thrifted and the shoes (the only non-Primark item) are also swapped but seeing as the label has rubbed off I have no idea where they came from originally.
