I quite like sloths. They seem like cool, chilled out animals, kicking back in the trees without too much stress or worry (I know this is probably far from the truth, but it’s nice to have something to aspire to).
My life’s been pretty un-sloth-like lately: We’ve had some pretty serious family drama in the last week or so which has been monopolising my attention somewhat. I also officially started my New Job (!). Less than a year with my new company and they’ve promoted me to field sales manager, which means less time on the road window shopping and more time in the office online shopping… (I’m kidding obviously, I’ve been working pretty hard)
So between the New Job, Family Worry, and the day-to-day struggles of everyday life I’m kind of envying my little sloth brethren and their low-maitenance lifestyle.
My new sloth brooch was hand-made by the truly delightful CatRabbit and it’s a lovely reminder to where possible take things slowly and mindfully.
In other news: I’ve FINALLY signed up to Pinterest, and I’m gradually getting the hang of it, but oh my, my lust list has EXPLODED since I started! If you want to check out what I’ve been looking at check me out here.
“it’s nice to have something to aspire to”… 😀 you made my day! Thaaaaanks Gorgeous! 🙂
If you love sloths. You have to see Kristen Bell’s sloth meltdown on Ellen. It is precious.
Love the collar combo… Thought of you as I bought red, orange and grey tights (on sale) from Susan.
Oh yes – it’s the funniest thing ever!
Pinterest is so dangerous! Look fwd to seeing your pins!
Yay for the new job and I hope the family situation resolves happily and quickly. The red with the blue is lovely and warming- I like that the red is kind of russety and not too bright! It’s a soft combo!
Such a great colour combo! Red and blue yet somehow you don’t looks like the US/UK flag. I’m inspired 🙂
Love the 60’s mix of blue and orange and the polka tights. You look seriously beautiful!!
I don’t get Pinterest.What is it that I am missing?
Congrats on new job, hope family situation is ok.
Aaah Pinterest – I can’t get access (I’m sure I’m doing something wrong).
Oh, I love your sloth brooch. I also have a weakness for vintage sweater pins.
Congrats on the promotion, and I hope the family drama has subsided. We had one o’ those family drama weeks last week, and I’m glad the storm has calmed…for now.
I’ve been meaning to tell you how much I love your hair.
P.S. Totally intrigued – and afraid – of Pinterest. Peeps tell me I’ll lose days and hours of my life if I sign up…lol.
On all things sloth.. you may well appreciate this Lilli (if you don’t know of this woman already – apparently I am the last person on the planet to have discovered her). And hope it brings a smile to counterpoint the family dramas. 🙂
