Hello…I’ve not written on here much recently. Partly because I haven’t been organised, but also because life’s been so busy. I know, life’s always busy, but the past few months have been intense. I’ve had a lot on my plate and honestly, I’ve not wanted to post about clothes or about anything in fact.
On the plus side, getting dressed has been easier, mostly because I have fewer choices. The clothes I do have make me feel good and coordinate well, so I don’t have to think too much. I can out throw an outfit together in no time. Recently I’ve started concentrating on developing the style of my work clothes, as I wear them more than any other area of my wardrobe.
In some ways however it felt like I had let things slide. I hadn’t been concentrating on looking after myself at all. For example I hadn’t got my hair done in ages and it was getting unmanageable. I have very thick and curly hair, which is a bit like having an animal that lives on my head. When it gets out of hand it really is an untameable beast. It might have been quicker for me to get dressed, but I was wasting time on my hair. Every morning I was desperately trying to control it and hide the many greys*, roots and split ends.
Maybe it didn’t get it sorted earlier because I was a little burnt out. Maybe it’s because it’s winter and I was in hibernation mode. Either way I was generally feeling rubbish. I’m not sure what prompted it, but something clicked and I realised it was time to start taking care of myself more. So I got a fancy toothbrush **, some nice new beauty products and went for a long overdue haircut.
Admittedly I thought the stylist might faint when he saw how much hair I had. Then I had to watch him stress over what I deal with every day, but other than that it was great. It was a bit of a transformation that left me wondering why I’d put it off for so long.
With that in mind I’ve decided to concentrate on looking after myself. By that I mean sticking to good hair and skincare regimens, and using all the moisturising products! I’m also trying to enough sleep and exercise more.
Have you treated yourself lately? If not you should, you totally deserve it.
*note, far too many greys. I am at the stage where I absolutely have to dye my hair. Brill.
** genuinely more excited by that than I should be
