So hey yall! The cold seems to have left me finally, but I have been so mentally tasked cleaning out my closet/ clothes room that I am mentally exhausted. I am about a third of the way through and I have to get it done before the end of the week. I am going to be away from home for an extended period and the room has to be remodelled for a new and exciting cause…I will be more explicit in due time and I worry my husband will throw away half of my stuff. If you know me, you will know I am attached to my handbags as they are a labour of love, clothes and shoes not so much as I am of the cheaper persuasion. I have let my mother “borrow” about four bags- I say borrow because I know she will try to covet them and I really don’t have the money to replace any as is. I still want a Bottega bag sha, so anyone feeling generous – I accept gifts. Well that and a YSL muse – I don’t buy trendy bags, just stuff that I like and it takes me 6 months easily to decide on a bag and save towards it…so that way if I change my mind after 1 month I know I dont really want it. Shoes on the other hand – I can wear $1 slippers I dont mind.
I have sorted out most of the stuff and was able to get rid of about 25 or so shoes shared amongst five or so people i Just need to get the clothes sorted out along the same lines. I have some lipsticks I need my mom to go through as I have only used them once and there is no point in throwing them out or keeping for so long especially as I will have access to shops while I am gone. I can’t give used cosmetics to anyone not biologically related to me- i worry about fluid swaps etc- is this a legitimate worry though?
I have also gone through my jewellery and made sense of the stuff I have. Sorted out by real metals and high end costume – courtesy of one of my brother’s mostly. He even offered a bag giveaway for the site as he works for a major designer of women’s goods but I can’t get the item before I travel so till I come back for the fun to begin….I have a bad habit of wearing one particular pair of earrings everyday – my studs which I bought for myself after I got my first masters in 2008. I buy myself nice things on a reward type basis…based on thay conclusion I have put out all the costume Jewellery I own but never wear.
I need to go through emails to dispatch the last set of giveaway items that are still in my possession, I will do that this week. I really don’t like going through emails these days and I am not sure why!
The clients have started calling- I guess work beckons this week. I also have to help a friend review a book. I am very jealous of people that can write books- i tell myself i will write a book soon but i stop by page 2 and then i tell myself no one is going to read it anyway! SMH!
I have decided on my one goal for 2016- to have an amazingly awesome year – “dazall”!
I wish you a wonderful week- schools resume this week so good luck with the traffic situation!
