Sleep Deprived

You might have noticed that I haven't been posting as regularly as usual. It is because I am just so so tired. All the time. I can't seem to shake it. I started a new job this year and with all the initial excitement of it, I think my usual spell of January blues is hitting me a couple of weeks later than everyone else. Well that, and sleep deprivation.

You might think this strange, but when I am feeling this way I find it oddly comforting to visualise places I would love to curl up and take a nap. It also means that when nap-time finally comes, you appreciate it all the more.

Here are some of my current nap fantasies:

Inspiration: Rachel

Do you ever ask yourself the question: If I could choose one person in the whole world to swap wardrobes with, who would it be?

I don't know if Rachel Bilson would be my choice, but she would definitely make the shortlist.

Now if I could take her hair too... and her doggy, there would be no competition.

More things to be happy about (7)

Salad bars; telephoning overseas; complimenting a total stranger; mini skirts; finding three good reasons to do something; misty mountain paths; trying to figure out the theme of a conversation in a foreign language; dog tricks; being softly propped up in bed; laughter which must be forcibly squelched due to the inappropriateness of the situation; controlling the largest empire on the monopoly board; blowing the wrapper off a straw; cobblestone streets; encouraging teachers; scaling the furniture to reach the top shelf; leaving notes in the bathroom mirror; deciding what three things you would bring to a desert island; tilting your chair; not having to set your alarm; introductory offers.

Best of... December 10

Due to my break from the internet over the Christmas holidays, I never got to post my usual monthly Best of the Blogs, so I'll do it now instead. Here are my picks for the month of December:

December brought with it some of the coldest weather we have seen in years in Ireland. The Sartorialist shows us that warm can be very stylish!

A new find on tumblr: That Kind of Woman

Mireia from My Daily Style held a competition where readers had to put together an outfit using at least one item from Spanish label, HAREI. These were my favourite entries (see the rest here).

The perfect berry coloured snood from A Cup of Jo.

Minimalism at its best from Bare Style.

And the lovely Betty in Paris.
