Falling into a New Season

Fashion & Beauty, Lifestyle/Personal

“Aprils have never meant much to me, autumns seem that season of beginning, spring.” ― Truman CapoteBreakfast at Tiffany’s

I love the stillness that comes with Fall. I love the silence. I love the idea that hibernation is in the forecast. After a crazy-busy-beautiful summer I am ready for a change of pace. I am yearning for cooler weather, warm sweaters, dark nail polish, and pumpkin-spiced everything. Call me crazy but Fall is my favourite season. It has potential, it radiates happiness with modest charm, and although I’m officially not in school anymore, it still has that air of change, growth, and excitement.


I’m looking forward to a Fall filled with new adventures, exploring different styles, and creating new goals. I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving, long drives surrounded by trees with leaves ignited by colour. I’m looking forward to cool evenings with my laptop on my lap, words floating around in my mind, and a hot cuppa tea nearby.

I’m looking forward to it all.



A Case of the Reds

Just for Fun, Lifestyle/Personal

I think I’ve had a case of the mad reds (Breakfast at Tiffany’s reference) and I’ve turned on everything and everyone that I love.


The mad reds are quite a bit worse than the boring old sad sorry blues. You’re mad at everything because you don’t understand what you’re afraid of, you see red all around you and your heart simply can take any added stress. But when you finally get through the mad reds and skip past the sad blues, life seems a bit clearer, like putting on a pair of glasses for the first time. Everything is crisp and fresh and new. You understand where your fear came from and what triggered your anger. With this understanding you discover ways to move forward, to fix things.

Or at least you’re on your way to figuring out exactly what you want to change and why you’re so afraid.

And that’s exactly where I’m at.


Love Always
