You Give Me Fever.

22 Dec
This girl is back in the pink!
The strangest thing happened today. I felt under the weather all day; that part isn’t strange, it started yesterday. This was demonstrated by sleeping in, skipping the morning photo shoot, getting to work a half hour late, drinking very little coffee, snuggling my neck in very warm wool sweater and drinking tea all day.
I supported the above by sucking on zinc and echinacea, avoiding sugar, (except for that one and only chocolate cookie, shhh…), staying warm and taking it easy. By easy, I’m referring to leaving work a little early, hitting the gym for a short and gentle jog, lots of stretching and some quality time in the jacuzzi and sauna.
This is what happened next. I started running lightly, being very mindful of how I was feeling. Ten or so minutes into it, I started feeling light-headed so I slowed way down, mentally preparing myself to stop. I drank some water, got really, really hot, and then started feeling great. I’m telling you, this is not what I expected. I then stepped it up just a little, nothing too aggressive, and ran easily for an hour.
I’m pretty sure I broke a fever while running. I’m still confused about it.
I felt good enough when I got home to snap up a very low light picture of the top half of my outfit. Pink on pink on pink, pretty much. This is the pink cashmere twin to Old Faithful, the aqua cardi I wear practically every other day. Which has gone missing, by the way.
I’m going to put out an APB if I don’t find it by the end of the week.

Mediterranean Sunset Dreams

16 Dec
Of course I’m smiling. I just ate some delicious chocolates.

The pearls barely peeked through, exactly how I wanted

Aqua and gold. A calm, deep aqua sea against the striking gold of a hot setting summer sun. Since the Mediterranean is currently off-limits for certain logistical reasons, primarily that my physical being is in Northern California, I shall dream of a different place and season by wearing my imagination.

When I first bought this dress I deemed it too vertically challenged for work but have since grown accustomed to it. In fact, I quite like it. I feel bolder with two pairs of tights on, the juxtaposition of grey lace against the teal tights adds dimension, visual interest and warmth as they disappear into my faux cowboy boots.

Old Faithful makes yet another appearance in its cashmere glory; talk about a sweater that has withstood the test of time. The gold elastic belt does my waistline justice, regardless of the fact that I started my day with Haribo Gold Bears and ended it with four divine CocoaBella chocolates. Somewhere in between all this was a cheddar cheese stick, a frozen Indian entree and half a fruit and nut bar but dinner remains to be seen.

You might have taken notice of the different background. These photos were taken at work, I left the house in a messy mad dash this morning and didn’t have a chance to shoot. My friend Euan at work has been kind enough to take these, as he happens to be quite a kind and skilled photographer. Cross your fingers, I’m hoping his talent make a regular appearance here.

We’re having lunch next week, I’ll keep you updated!
