Frosty

Frosty_1 Frosty_2
Wearing:

BB Dakota suede and faux fur jacket
Cable knit leggings (no label)
Steve Madden "Graanie" boots in cognac
Burberry scarf
Estee Lauder "Stay Scarlet" lipstick

If I could blog all day long, I would.  That's why today is such a treat.   I feel like I finally have time to do a post that's not rushed and a little more thought out.  Gone are the days where I would plan out which hot topics to cover as well as which looks I want to get photographed in.  There's been so much going on in the world, my work, and in my personal life.  It's easy to get overwhelmed.  But one thing I found that is always an escape for me is this blog.  That and running.  Running is my therapy.  Exercise and blogging don't always go together.  But for me they work as a way to help me cope with a stressful reality.

Whenever I look back at old photographs from this blog, it makes me smile.  I remember events that occurred during that day...and sometimes I wish so badly that I could go back to it.  Especially when I'm swamped with assignments that seem to have no end.   This pictures for example, make me happy. I love the snow.  These pictures were taken in our super secret sledding spot ;)  It's actually not so secret, but not many people cover this area.

Anyway, is blogging your escape too?  What else helps you to relax during busy or stressful times?

Happy Monday & God Bless!

  7. You look so lovely and so happy. :) I agree with you, blogging is totally an escape. It's a lot of things for me. It gives me a sense of purpose, because I love teaching people about things or people. And it's also a great place to vent. It's just a wonderful place to be creative. I've often told Rian that I honestly think I would be depresesd right now if I hadn't started my blog. My life would be lacking something.

  9. It looks coooold outside. I don't think I've been in any snow in years! It might be time to get out of the gorgeous San Francsico weather and take a little trip to Tahoe. ;)
