I find I’m far more productive working from home, if I get up and dressed first. Some days – most days – this means throwing on leggings, an oversized sweater and fluffy socks, and getting on with it. Some days, like today, I awake before the alarm, feeling refreshed and revived, and feel like spending a bit of time on myself. As soon as I slipped into this dress today I knew I wanted to wear some sort of bow or flower in my hair – I just felt like putting that bit of effort in…
I find it astonishing how enormously a lick of red lipstick can change an entire look. This particular shade of coral red lifts my skin tone, brings out the natural flush of my cheeks and the gold of my hair. When I wear a berry tone, my eyes look instantly greener. The difference is notable!
I also wanted to share with you my lupercalia gifts, presented to me most unexpectedly on Monday evening.
A bunch of yellow roses (I have ALWAYS loved yellow roses), a Gruffalo year planner and a book about Victorian murder cases (not pictured). I finally read The Suspicions of Mr Whicher over Christmas and became particularly interested in Victorian crime detection. He knows me so well! 😀
