Colourful – Winter


The end of 2016 is coming to an end, and I would like to take this opportunity of thanking each one of you, for the support, you have given me throughout this time.

It has been a turbulent year in many aspects, with so much unnecessary suffering around the world. We are consumed in our own self-indulgence that we fail to realise those less fortunate. ( I’m all for self-interest when it leads to development). We ignore their cries for help, because we don’t know where, or how, to start, to give help!  Respect for others and compassion would make the world a safer and more beautiful place.

Love and blessings!

Although I like to wear a lot of black during the winter months, I do love to add some colour. This vivid pink duffle coat really brightens up a dull and wintry day. I’ve had the coat in my closet for a while and wear it often, but it’s the first time I’m doing a post on it.

The length is perfect for daily use and is surprisingly warm, so I don’t need to layer up underneath. This is very practical as I’m not a fan of wearing many layers in order to keep warm, which makes me feel too restricted in my movement. If you are like me, running around all day – you will understand what I mean!
