Ready for a little winter-related rambling?
Every year, around the middle of November, my perception of almost everything changes. I feel an urge to look more feminine, to reinvent myself in a certain way, to experiment new situations, to jump on occasions to see and discover more. Often, this ends up being only theoretical as I think a lot about those things, but do not achieve them. This time, I would like things to be different. I'm already seeing elements in my life I would like to change, and in order to make things feasable, I believe lists are in order.
Clothing-wise, I am often tempted by many things during the winter and often end up spending on everything but what I really want and would wear very much. This year, I intend to keep to the following (a bit shallow, yes...) list as I don't really need anything:
a)to find a nice, warm, subtly coloured cardigan, preferably like the pale purple one above;
b)to stop getting tempted by all those pretty shiny things and find myself the perfect vintage beaded cardigan I've been thinking about for a few years;
c)to find a used fur or a soft faux-fur jacket (I passed on one, last year, regretted it and kept seeing the lucky girl who bought it every few days - we didn't even know each other);
d)to find a colourful a-line skirt (yes, a lot of colour in this list!);
e)to use scarves to keep my ears warm like the lovely girl in the last picture!
f)to get an extra pair of wool tights.
Life-wise, I would like to...
a)get back to producing more collages, jewellery, and maybe developing my own photos;
b)get better at actually going out of the house, yes, even if it's cold, and stop missing exhibitions and movies, reasoning with myself with seasonal excuses;
c)get better at waking up early and be punctual to my morning classes;
d)start baking cakes, cookies and to learn how to make pies: I still haven't used the full potential of finally having a working oven in my apartment!
Finally, remain cheerful and happy, and remember that that's the most important, no matter what's on the lists!
How about you? What are your seasonal resolutions? Do you make such lists?
