Ugh winter I hate you. You're too cold and blue, and you're making me feel like that too, and your harsh light is ruining my pictures. I was a little (ok, very) optimistic leaving the flat in this outfit this weekend, the wind was so bitter I was literally frozen by the time I finally got to where I was going, and my hat blew off, twice. That kind of sounded mysterious, I was actually headed out to cheer myself up and buy cake. There's an incredible bakery called Violet which I've discovered and it's about a five minute walk away from my flat (dangerous). They do the most incredible cakes. I would have taken a photo but I literally inhaled it. I would only recommend this method of cheering yourself up every once in a while though, cake is only a quick sugar induced fix for January blues though, and I've got them bad. And I was meant to be cutting out sugar! Massive fail.

So a big thanks to We are Cow for sending an incredible surprise vintage package to me last week, which included this beautiful crushed velvet maxi, it really cheered me up and definitely lessened my January blues.

But for some reason, I felt so low all of yesterday and I have no idea why, I just moped around feeling the most uncreative and just basically rubbish I'd felt in a long time. So today I tried to be really productive with work, thinking positive and I started to make ideas lists, collecting inspirational images, reading blogs, planning outfits, and it really worked, I started feeling excited and inspired again. In fact, that's a great idea for a future blogpost, right there. Plus it's my birthday soon so it's not all bad. Has anyone else felt like this recently, and if you have, how do you beat your winter blues?

Winter I won't let you get me down. But hurry up summer.
