We all have days when we just don’t feel like it…
Yes, we do. I know, it’s hard to admit, and it sort of goes against everything we believe in. But we’re not perfect, nobody is. And we should just accept that there are days when we’re not at our best, and that’s OK. So what if you just put on the first thing you pulled out of your wardrobe? So what if it wasn’t even clean? Or match the rest of the outfit? Look around, did the world come to an end? Did the world even notice?
NO!!! Am I invisible or something??? I go out my hair undone and with no make up and dressed in something I picked up from the laundry basket and nobody says anything?!?
Oh yes, the world doesn’t say anything because the world doesn’t recognise me. That’s because I’m in disguise. Yep, this is an undercover style blogger gathering intelligence on… well, something, whatever, who cares… The point is, this is not a case of blogger paranoia, or a style blogger going bonkers; the disguise is intentional, you know, to…
Oh hell, sometimes you just don’t feel like it, that’s all. After all, it’s just clothes, and there are times when your mind is just preoccupied with something else, maybe something more important or more urgent, or maybe you’re just exhausted. And that’s fine.

Thank you for your encouraging comments and support on my Brexit rant.
It means a lot to me.
I can’t deny that I’ve been quite depressed lately, and haven’t really been into blogging as a result. You see, I’m a bit of a glass-half-empty (make that glass-two-thirds empty) kind of gal, always imagining the worst case scenario (or rather, half a dozen versions of it), and this really hit me hard. I’ve never been an optimist (quite the contrary), and I’m prone to worrying about and overanalysing just about anything. You could say I’m one of those people who live in constant fear of the sky falling, and want to be prepared for it…
Of course, this attitude isn’t exactly conducive to reducing stress, which is why I work really hard at being a more upbeat and shallow person, trying to focus on anything fun and frivolous and see the positive side of things (yes, I’m aware how odd that sounds). This blog is part of that ongoing process. That’s why, when I started this blog, I made a conscious decision to keep it light-hearted in tone and focus on topics that I find not only interesting but also relaxing. In other words, the blog was also my escape from my own mind, helping me focus on the good things in life.
I’ve never been politically active, but now I’m beginning to realise that I have a lot to say, on a range of topics not related to style or travel. And when shit happens (as it inevitably does, as any pessimist knows only too well…), I don’t want to just sit and wait to see how it will play out but do something about it, even if it’s just to rant. I realise that this blog is not the best platform for that, but at the moment I feel that I need to indulge the more serious part of my personality, too. Maybe I need to start another blog, call it ‘What the F**k is Wrong with the World?’ or something… In the meantime, I need to warn you to expect an occasional rant every now and then…
