Comfort Clothing

I don’t know what it is about a chunky knit that I find so comforting. It could be that it keeps you warm like a blanket does and it is more comfortable than a jacket or coat. I got this chunky knit at the Zara sale and I have worn it several times since I bought it. I adore it!

I am also loving wearing a backpack. It is great when you are out shopping and you can throw all your purchases in it and have your hands free to look at more stuff. How convenient!

I hope you all had a beautiful weekend! Have you bought anything lately that you find comforting or convenient?

4th Blog Bday

My blog turned 4 recently and this year I really felt like celebrating it. When I started this blog in 2010 I had no expectations. I still don’t. I merely started it as a means of expression and a way to do something that I love. I could never have dreamed that it would bring me so many opportunities and joy. I’ve been on TV, was featured in a national magazine, got flow to Joburg for a day and much much more all because of the blog. I am truly grateful for all of this but what I am most grateful for are the people who have been reading this blog for years! Thank you! I have received so many encouraging comments, emails and tweets over the years and this is what helps when I feel despondent once in a while. I have little something something for y’all coming soon to the blog to say thank you and to celebrate :)
