 i have very little colour in my wardrobe, but i love colour in life. 

particularly colour in vintage fashion photography.  there's something about the muted vibrancy of low tech film that makes an image feel richer to me.

fashion photography from this era also brings back memories of my childhood. looking through fashion magazines and imagining the adult I would one day become while playing dress-ups with gaudy coloured plastic jewels and eating colourful 1c lollies from my 50c lolly bag. 

come with me on a joyful trip down memory lane -

the past two days i've felt so much sadness and irritability and frustration and anger and it's been incredibly draining.  so this is a post to read if you're feeling particularly drained by the symptoms of menopause.  it includes a couple of my coping mechanisms for getting back on track.  sending love, it will be ok.

it's a widely known fact that menopause means hot flushes and alcohol induces these hot flushes.  safe to say, much of the 'here to help' literature around menopause recommends an alcohol free existence to keep flushes under control.  this sits well within the societal move towards zero alcohol adult beverage alternatives, and the mental and physical benefits of an alcohol-free lifestyle.   if you want to punch those articles in the face, read this.
