So! As you may have heard via twitter, I’m suddenly single. Quelle horreur! Oh but don’t you worry about me. I’m really quite okay with the fact that I may well end up walking down the aisle in my forties (in an age-appropriate cocktail dress, nogal) and have to blow what would’ve been my dream house deposit on IVF. Or not. There’s also a chance I’ll end up all alone in a craptastic Upper Woodstock bachelors save for ten thousand cats which I’ll use as my profile pic on Facebook. But of course!
Seriously though, I’m not as bleak as I’m making out. I’m actually very much okay (or at least I’m going to be) thanks to an amazing group of friends and copious amounts of frozen yoghurt. I’ve also been incredibly humbled by the random outpourings of love and good wishes I’ve received from total strangers who happen to read my blog.
Anyway, while going through the whole post-break-up twisto change-o thing I’ve thrown out every single item of clothing I haven’t worn in six months and considered lopping off my locks. Thing is, I quite like my hair. It took me forever to grow it out and I’m not quite ready to part with it. So, instead of going for the chop, I’m doing what every semi-broken hearted girl oughtta do; switch to waterproof mascara, watch Katy Perry’s ‘Wide Awake’ video until my internet caps out and buy a big ass chunk o’ bling to cheer me up.
Gatsby Girl is all about elegance, sophistication and ‘vintage lines’…
…Sugar Doll is a veritable candy store of pretty pastels…
…Marine Maiden is sleek and sophisticated…
…and Safari Traveller is gold, gold, gold with the odd touch of zexy animal print:
Decisions, decisions, (sparkly little) decisions… it’s very hard to pick a favourite collection as there are elements I like from each one of them. One thing’s for sure, I do adore my pretty new Tempo horlosie from the Marine Maiden collection:
They say time heals all wounds so if I’m going to be counting the minutes, I’m happy to be able to do it in style.
