I have been inspired a lot lately, feeling more creative, and bolder. (You blogging beauties are always inspiring me, Sacramento http://www.mispapelicos.com/ and Vix, hello opera coat http://vintagevixon.blogspot.co.uk/, helped vanquish my bleurgh this week)
Although, really I'm not naturally very creative or bold, this really is the equivalent me putting an extra half of sugar in my coffee. No big deal, but I want more! I want more!
For example, I only recently discovered that wearing 3 brooches, for me, is better than 1, it's all baby steps.
Sunday, drinking fancy Prosecco my Aunt bought me for being her bridesmaid 40 years ago
I figured it wasn't really wine as it has bubbles
and a collar my eldest bought me
I felt bland and bleurgh (nothing to do with the collar!)
Monday, wearing my teeny barely covering boobs apron
I read my blogs, and then, like the pounding bass
I was feeling bolder
I wanted to clash
I also had a little nap during all of this as being creative is exhausting
I'm bold like Tinky Winky
I gave myself cheekbones!
Today, Mr Foxy and I had a day out, these days are rare
We try not to tell the kids as its guaranteed they will be ill
Mr Foxy let it slip
oddly the 2 littlest were ill this morning
They were sent in and advised if they became ill the school would phone us
then we scarpered
I carried the bold with me, red lippie slapped on my face, 4 brooches, cowboy boots and seriously dodgy hair. I wanted to make bolder choices.
The shining chazza's blessed me
A hat, which I'm chuffed with
I tried this coat on, and thought it was too small, a lovely lady cooed over it, she tried it on, it was too big - but she and a few ladies decided I really should buy it (and another, which I did!)
being the obedient type, it came home with me
Shirley Bassey or Burley Shassey (thank you Mr Eric Morecome, British comedy legend)
My haul of awesome boldness!
elbow length mittens to go with a very short sleeve cape I already have
a 100% cashmere cardi for £3.49
A tartan skirt for £4.99
I salute and thank all of the wonderful inspiring writers from Blogs I read
how much inspiration, support and confidence I feel I get from each of you
At 40 I felt washed out and felt I should grow up.
Whaaaaaaaat was I thinking?!!!!!!!!!
but you all showed me the way!
till next time my beauties
