Inspiration / Modern day 1970
I must be honest. I’ve been absent for a while, and I apologise. December is never an easy month, no matter what people tell you. Juggling becomes the most important survival skill and eventually takes it toll which is exactly what happened. I was exhausted, drained and in need of withdrawing myself from the big wide world, for some quiet time, ideally in Marrakesh, but at home was good enough. I must admit my confidence also took a bit of a hit, I was knocked a bit sideways and it was skewing my perspective of everything, leading me to begin to consider all sorts of alternatives and new avenues to replace a potentially redundant blog. However, if you’re reading this, then I guess you’ve been here before so, fear not, I haven’t decided to throw in the towel – breathing space was all I needed. And now I’m back, easing myself back in steadily, like a steaming hot Epsom-salted bath (of which I have recently taken many using my favourite Bathory salts who also seem to have taken a break from their old routine).
If you’re interested, here’s what I got up to:
1) Watched Girls Season 2 2) Watched Girls Season 3 3) Weeped when Homeland ended 4) Bought a lot of house plants 5) Did some room-swapping at home 6)Built some shelves 7) Burned a lot of candles 8) Cooked Vietnamese food 9) Hung some art 10) Played a lot of Monopoly 11) Read The Age of Miracles – highly recommend this.
Things I didn’t do:
1) Go outdoors enough 2) Clear up the home office (I just shut the door on that one for a while longer) 3) Didn’t finish reading Shantaram 4) Didn’t drink enough water 5) Didn’t sleep enough.
Let’s move onto the fashion theme, as thats probably why you’re here. You must know by now how much I’m into that Seventies thang (if you’re Cali-based) thing if you’re rest-of-the-world based. And my constant desire to stay visually inspired and stimulated has hit an all-time high. I was always into Seventies-bohemian-luxe, but with it being the biggest trend yet for Spring/Summer 15 it means that there are so many inspiring editorials and products becoming available that may otherwise be hard to get hold of, it is definitely going to be an expensive few months. I found a whole new bunch of images published, old and new and conclude three things 1) Can I pull off the turban? 2) Where can I get one? 3) Its reassuring to see that leaving your hair to dry naturally is again a thing. I’m off to contemplate these important questions. Peace out, folks.
