blasé beauties.

i’m in a bit of crap mood today for a reason i can’t quite put my finger on. for the sake of brevity, let’s just say i’ve got the sunday blues. no one to play with, so i’m working. sorry, but we all have those days sometimes, right? it gets lonesome around here and today was one of those days, so i decided to try and take something not very pleasant and put a creative spin on it. i’m trying to turn the blahs into blasé beauty — neutrals, pale shades that might be considered bland, but sometimes just suit your mood. tomorrow is another day! what do you do to chase the away the sunday blues?

    Gosh..playing with my beloved dog ‘Coconut’ cheers me up..he is sooo goofy with his big paws and sweet folded ears….BUT…..a bowl of rice pudding does it for me as well!

    Give your sweet Lucy a BIG HUG…you will both love it! xo

  4. Lovely round up of images. I usually chase the sunday blues with a walk, a mani/pedi, and maybe a mimosa. ;-)

    Ahh! Inspiration overload. I love the simplicity of it all.

    I totally understand what you mean though, I felt the same way yesterday as well. I suppose we all get in those sorts of moods every now and then… I sometimes watch my favorite shows on Netflix, or browse through Pinterest for inspiration and pick-me-ups. :)

    Thanks for posting such honest feelings. We all get days like these and the more that blog people mention them when they happen, the more readers will appreciate that they’re not alone when they feel sad, desolate, unfulfilled or just plain melancholy. It’s a little part of life that try as we might we can’t always escape from, and in reality, if people around us know we’re a little blue, they usually help. Great blog, hope you’re feeling more ‘chipper’ today lol

    I hope that you’re feeling better today, Victoria! To chase the blues, I usually try to tackle a nagging thing on my ‘to do’ list. I can’t help but feel better at the other end of it.
