I'm back, not that I was really away, but real life and generally feeling a little bit crap, kind of got in the way of blogging the past few weeks. I'm getting back into it now though, I've got a couple of posts planned and I'm dedicating this evening to editing some photos and actually doing some writing. It's been a crazy couple of weeks; a trip to A&E with a suspected case of gall stones, a fire in the flat below us (don't leave your stove on and leave the house guys) and planning and executing a Thanksgiving/early Christmas dinner. I'm definitely looking forward to everything calming down a little bit before the 25th.
I've been finding it quite difficult to put together outfits that are 'blog worthy' lately. All the layers I've been wearing to keep warm are making me feel a little bit puffy, add to that my usual Winter weight gain and there have been more than a few days where I have tried on several outfits before giving up, throwing everything back into my cupboard and angrily pulling on my jeans. I nearly did the same thing with this dress, it fits perfectly, but add thermals underneath and I was feeling a little bit tight across my chest. Sigh. I know I shouldn't let silly things like a slightly tight dress stress me out, but I can't help it. I'm going to make an extra effort to wear 'pretty' things over the next few days and see if that cheers me up. At least it is only 2 weeks until Christmas, the thought of spending the day with my family, boyfriend and all the dogs is definitely perking me up.
