february is always the toughest month for me to get through, even though it’s the shortest. winter’s charm has worn out and my mind turns entirely to spring. i have a family house at the beach and i don’t spend much time there in the winter, so by now i start to feel it calling to me…my heart aching for sand and surf and most of all sun. driving to the shore with the windows down and that familiar salt water smell as you near the ocean.
the need for spring and summer takes over my thoughts and each day that winter drags on feels more and more unbearable. i’m trying to fight the blues this month… jemma and i each put together a little survival kit of things that help us get through the waning days of winter!
i’ve been in my apartment for over a year and i still don’t have a couch! time to fix that – i like the sixties look of this one. while the snow piles up outside i’ll put on some bob marley (catch a fire or burnin’) and break out the watercolors- getting into a hobby always helps when i’m cooped up inside. i love these little shorts that i can wear now with tights and in summer with flip flops to the beach! and i’m eyeing a backpack for the vacation i’m planning sometime soon – hopefully to somewhere warm! my next book, favorite lip balm, and this amazing hat, will come with me.
and from jemma:
February is here and Valentine’s Day isn’t that long away, I sure need some love to help me through this dreary month.
The cold weather is getting to be a little too much. This month I intend to indulge in my comfort zone – cozying up at night with welsh wool tapestry blankets burning one of my favorite scented candles, Baies by Diptyque, while I watch romantic comedies.
To make this month romantic I might add lace to my wardrobe (pictured are the fp-1 anita page slip with pacifica crochet hoodie and long sleeve henley lace bodysuit) and I would love to get hold of these Stella McCartney postcard panties – being from the UK these suit my thoughts “with love from London” with Big Ben printed embroidered on the front.
