Right, January has finally left us! I am not one of those people that complains about time or weather because I feel like as long as you are protected from the elements, then YOLO! However, for some reason, I feel like January and the bloody snow want to stay forever and it’s starting to drag me down. So I use color to lift my mood and spirit and to get on with my days. I have big projects coming up and I am very excited to get February started. Le hubs and I are starting new plans for the future and although budgeting is not my forte, we are making thing work. I am super lucky, in the sense that my husband is not one of those men that forbids me to shop…as long as I shop in moderation, then he’s all for it. Now that January is finally gone and will only come back out to play in 11 months, I am feeling extremely inspired but most importantly thankful for those small things in life. And here I am sharing them with you!
♠ ♠ ♠
1- This is probably one of the things I am most grateful for lately and it’s getting my confidence back. Slowly but surely, I am getting to where I want to be. Having gone through hard time in the past couple of months, I am finally able to push back the bad thoughts and the negativity to welcome inner peace and happiness. Working on myself is a main priority and although I struggle to make time for myself, I still manage to push through. I enjoy being alone and not in a way that is pathetic; it’s therapeutic and enjoyable. Having even 5 small minutes in a day to simply put a mask on or doing my makeup makes me so happy and I cannot wait to give myself more of what I truly deserve.
2-Having my husband by my side again and seeing him work hard for us to be happier is something I will forever be grateful for. I am super lucky and I cannot wait to see what’s in store for us. And although we sometimes struggle to understand each other and argue/fight often, we still manage to clear the slate at the end of the day and start fresh the next. Marriage is work, but it is something I am very dedicate to making it successful.
3-Clothing and more specifically vintage is giving me all kinds of awesome feels. Getting back out there and doing events and pop up shops and sharing my love for all things vintage is absolutely incredible. I am so in love with what I do and I am extremely joyful to be able to share that with many of you out there. And that fact that I am helping the planet a bit more and being eco-friendly in recycling and reusing people’s clothes is humbling. I am learning on a daily basis and I take my stand into being more sustainable and efficient to our planet and that in itself is a step in the right direction. Also, I have been loving experimenting with different colors and patterns and that, currently, is giving me life!
4-These things are in no particular order of importance but the most important of them all is baby Sofia. Her little smiles are everything! She’s my saving angel and although she is becoming more and more demanding, waking up to one of her infectious smiles heals my heart and hugs my soul. She is truly one hell of a gem and she makes me the happiest and richest human on the planet. She is beyond adorable and being able to see her grow and develop her personality on the daily is something I am extremely thankful for and words can never express my gratitude for having her in my life.

5-Reading. I love reading but not having had lots of time to do it lately, I started to lose the habit of picking up a book and indulging in it. Since little monster is growing, she is quite occupied in exploring her surrounding, so I have a little bit more time to myself and reading is something I am getting back into, especially poetry. I love poetry!
