New year, new beginnings....

Many choose to begin the year with a list of resolutions and promises to themselves, and in the previous years I have conformed to this habit too....as I do relish a good list.....being the devout little list writer that I am. But this year, I have broken the habit and no list of resolutions was compiled....or no promises to myself were made as Big Ben stuck at midnight. Why? I stared in awe of the exploding colours of the fireworks and vibrancy of the lights, but my mind was utterly blank for once. Conclusion? It is time to start over a blank new slate....no plans, no promises, no wishes and no rules......come what may and let the adventures begin!
So what did I do on the first day of 2012? I decided to be glitzy and furry at the same time without knowing how and just dug out something from my wardrobe as well as something from my pressie pile from Christmas. Working with an old sequin top and new furry turban....feeling out of place and unconventional to the usual form......this is the pick n' mix look I achieved in the end.

New Year 2012!


Who is to say what is to come in 2012, but I will be fine just holding close to what I love best....a dash of sparkle and a bit of faux fur. So in the words of the beloved Venus that is Coco Chanel:
"You live but once; you might as well be amusing."

Until the next time,
May xx
PS: Happy New Year 2012!

  6. A bit late, but wishing you a happy new year May! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for taking time out of your precious life to leave such a comforting and supportive comment on one of my very personal blog posting. It meant a lot when i saw that you "really" read my 2011 recap post, i felt more at ease when i realized there was someone out there who understood what i had been through. I guess i feel less alone ( you know how sometimes you feel like you're the only one in the world experiencing something?)lol...and it's great inspiration to see how fab you are rocking it right now so i'm sure pretty sure you are right, time is a healer:)

    I love that quote by Coco Chanel, it's really inspiring! and lastly, your fury turban is soo chic and stylish, looks fab on you!!!:D
