I want to see the colours of another sky

Lately I've been feeling very content, which is rare for me to say as I am the world's biggest worrier and even listening to certain songs gets me in to an emotional state (Les Misérables, need I say more?!). But right now, I am content. I am trying to cherish the simple things, like fresh fruit and black coffee on a crisp Wintry morning, or rediscovering the atlas I got 11 years ago and planning Scandinavian adventures. New stationary to keep me organised and focused, new books of new lands with covers that remind me of home, really looking around me at the beauty of my city as I have taken it for granted for too long. Relishing in girly nights in with my mum and sister re-watching Pride and Prejudice (with Colin, of course), or reading beautiful magazines while the snow falls outside. Finally sorting myself out and realising that if I have a goal I need to let go and reach for it, not letting anything get in my way. And at the risk of sounding like an awful self help book, having confidence in myself to start living and being myself (I'll work on it.)

Have a gorgeous week x

treasure hunt

Firstly, happy new year to you all! I hope it was a wonderful beginning to 2013 for everyone. Something I would love for the new year is to blog more often, as with my growing confidence, my excitement for blogging has grown with it (I've even gone and got myself a bloggy twitter account @thelostgirl93 for more ramblings) so hopefully this will be the first of many posts this year has to offer! I'm very much looking forward to the future, and have spent a lovely day looking back at the past. Rummaging through ribbons, records, books and bags was perfect even in the mist, and ending the afternoon in my favourite coffee shop(new hat on and everything) really made me excited for the year ahead - planning adventures abroad and life changing chats. 

Have a lovely lazy Sunday x
