It’s been a while. I haven’t posted anything on my blog since before Christmas, which I think is the longest period of time I’ve been silent on here.
It’s not that I’ve given up blogging, it’s more that I’m feeling the way a lot of bloggers feel at this time of year, uninspired and pretty unmotivated. I can’t say I’ve done anything recently worth talking about either. I had a nice Christmas with Antony and his family, it didn’t snow here until a few days after Christmas Day and it’s been cold, slushy, and slippery ever since which I get pretty fed with, I’d like to wear something other than snow boots.
If any of you watched Lisa Eldridge’s make up video with Alexa Chung I can definitely relate to what they call ‘winter face’ where you feel like you look grey and tired, and your skin is really craving some sunshine. I bought quite a few new makeup and skincare items with my Christmas money hoping it will perk me up (see photo below), but Antony and I have also found ourselves discussing the idea of living somewhere warmer for a year or two, maybe Australia, we’ll see.I do have one update for you, in December Antony and I moved out of his parents house and into our own apartment in Westboro, Ottawa. It was the only neighbourhood we looked at because it’s known for being quite young and trendy, it’s close to downtown, and there’s lots of shops, cafes, and restaurants right on our doorstep (I’m writing this sat in Equator Cafe, see Latte photo below).I haven’t shared any photos of the apartment because it’s tiny and we don’t have a lot of stuff here (most of my things are still at my parents house in England) so I don’t really feel like it’s worth showing you, plus, we don’t plan to stay in this apartment for long. Okay, here’s one photo of our bed, just because I love the Hudson Bay blanket my parents bought us and the SPRUTT white metal cabinet from IKEA that I store all my makeup etc in.I think that’s enough rambling for now. I just want to finish by saying I’m really happy it’s now February (my birthday month) and also roll on Spring!
