Last night I was sitting on the terrace on the 27th floor in my flat, watching the sunset contemplating life. It's incredible how many people you can fit into a square mile. Next to me is a skyscraper, opposite are another 5: people are watching TVs, making dinner, hosting barbecues, nursing their hangovers (yesterday was a public holiday), some are playing with kids, others maybe even blogging. We are like a hundred of ants all boxed up into these cement towers. Minding our own business, loving, living. The modern society is such a complex ants nest, a seemingly perfect mechanism, where human antbots live in their little bubbles of happiness and sadness.
So yesterday was a public holiday, don't you love those? They creep up on you out of nowhere shortening the week, brightening things up. I had a little brunch at mine with Sam and Sybil to discuss a really fun fashion project I cannot wait to tell you all about next week. For the food I choose something simple: raisin and apricot bread with ricotta and honey for the sweet tooth and dark brown sunflower seeds loaf with mozzarella and avocado, for the savoury. I had both of course :).
Afterwards I headed to the beach with hubster and my two sausages, armed with Wallpaper magazine, Wired and FT weekend arts & life section (I have been following NYFW and now PFW so much my brain needed a quick fashion news detox :)
I bought this silver Ziggy Stardust number in H&M few weeks ago. It reminds me of futuristic chain mail, like a warrior's robe from the 80's and it is just that perfect cropped lenght. I put it on for the photos and almost died of heat, I think people on the beach thought I was a crazy lady, to be wearing a jumper in 30 degrees. Should have told them I am just a fashion blogger who misses the cold :) Skirt Zara, glasses Raybans.
Happy Mid-Week! I think we should really try and lobby a 4 day week, the world would be a much better place if we spent less time in the office!
