Brass Monkeying + Alessi Giveaway!

London has been so cold and with this bout of persistent snow, it’s been hard for me to keep warm! In my defence, I was born on the equator where our weather is much much kinder than here and despite the fact that I have been here for AGES, I can’t get used to bitter winters!

Also, this is the month in which I lost my mother many many years ago (when I was 10). Strangely, I still cannot escape the lingering pain neither can I reconcile myself with the hole she left in my heart. January is indeed a month of cold hands and cold hearts for me. Grief is something we can never really shake off it’s just about learning to live with it in a positive way. 

I’ve been keeping my feet from slipping with my trusty Hunters. They are great in the snow so long as they are accompanied with a pair a of tights and a couple of pairs of socks to keep the cold from nipping at my toes!

Keep warm.
