Hello again readers!
I hope this past week has been a good one, this year has started off really hectic and it doesn’t seem to show any sign of slowing down. It’s unbelievable that we’re at the end of February and I still feel like 2015 has just started.
One thing I do try, and that is to have at least one morning in the week where I take out some time for me. Whether it be a brunch with a friend, shopping and coffee with my sis or a mid week lunch date with hubby.
On this day hubby and I decided to catch lunch and enjoy a bit of the sea air while he was out of the office. Our lives as parents really revolve around the boys, it’s a rare occasion for us to be able to steal time out so we need to try and do it often. Even weekends are reserved for the kids, as teenagers they have very busy social lives, sport engagements and dad or mum has to be on stand by. I have even considered joining the corporate world again…. and then realised it would mean the return of my migraines, sleep deprivation and health issues. And I would still be doing everything I am now, including balancing my career (this does not appeal to me at ALL!)
The theme of my weekday outfits is usually comfort first, and I try to make an effort to ‘dress up’ most days and not lounge in sweats. Make up is usually not on my list, unless I am meeting someone, when I put in the extra effort with mascara and lipstick. Boyfriend jeans is a staple in my wardrobe and is perfect for comfort and modesty, whilst not looking sloppy. I have paired it with a t-shirt, and thrown a linen blazer into the mix to pull the look together. A pair of pointy pumps completes the outfit.
