Well 2020 is now well under way. I'd intended getting this newsletter out at the end of January, but well...here it is now!
Anyway Happy New Year! 2020! It has a ring about it. A pleasing symmetry. Connotations of perfect vision. Wouldn't it be nice if we could apply that to our environment and fellow humans in a harmonious and beneficial way?
It's been a strange summer here in NSW and Australia. Even if you don't live here you'll have heard about the terrible bush fires fueled by drought, high temperatures and strong winds. Here in Avalon Beach we've been affected with poor air quality, over-cast skies, red sunsets and helpless feelings of Armageddon. I can only begin to imagine how those who lost loved ones and property are coping!
In the last few weeks we've been getting some rain, which is very welcome, and now too much rain and flooding. It never rains, but it pours!
My word for the year (in place of a resolution) is 'fit'. Fit and healthy. Fit for the environment. Fit for life. I'd like to adopt new exercise routines. My diet has become more wholefood, plant based (vegan) and I'd like to work out new healthy and tasty meal options. And I'd like to learn how to make more environmentally (and ethically) sustainable fashion and lifestyle choices.
How about you? What have you resolved to do this year?
My renovations are slowly continuing after stopping over Christmas and New Year. I'm finding the new kitchen process very trying, but at least we now have a functioning kitchen and the splash backs are due to be installed next week. Then hopefully my builder will be back and have things finished up in a few weeks (fingers crossed). When it's all done and dusted we'll love the changes!
On a fashion note: when was the last time you wore a belt? Perhaps you already have a belt or two that you haven't worn for a while? In this month's article I give you ideas for wearing a belt (see below).
Enjoy this month's Style Snippets
Yours in style
