Petal Power: Beating The Januray Blues

Despite being an important month for me with so many birthdays, including my own, January tends to be quiet and long. It seems that we are all trying to get back that "real life" rhythm which proves incredibly hard after you've had a nice couple of days off work for the holiday season. February isn't much different even though in theory the month should feel shorter, emphasis on the "in theory". And, to make it all worse (especially for us a bloggers), days are shorter and daylight is nearly non-existent, the sun is continuously hiding behind grey clouds and we are fighting below zero temperatures in the early hours on our work commute. Lovely isn't it? #Sarcasm: just one of the many services I offer.

Yes, I'm feeling blue. I think that I speak for everyone when I say that what makes all of these somewhat better is shopping, eating (more like stuffing your face; diet who?), awards season and, lots of pretty and cute things.  Even better, if you are anything like me, what really helps is some petal power, I'm talking flowery clothes, accessories, homeware and of course, actual flowers. Remember when I spoke about wearing Florals For Winter here, that is exactly the sort of thing I'm talking about. Not only flowers effectively cheer me up, they are perfect to brighten up the space around you and get us in that Spring mood. Say goodbye to dark days, hello to blooming lovelies.

  14. Ahahaha I love your love for florals! I do see them occasionally and think of you. Personally, what does it for me is thinking about the beach, the ocean, (eating too, I mean you were right: diet who?) and weirdly, exercising. Maybe reading too because that's basically what I breath for.

    That watch and the ring though. They're so pretty. How had I not known about them before? I'm in love!

    Your posts always bring a smile to my face babe, thank you so much.
