Christmas Blues

Christmas has come and gone, and now I’m left with the blues. Soon I will need to leave my family and get back to the real world. No more homemade cooking from my mother, no more bumming around the house like a bump on a log, and no more laughing at her crazy antics. I swear she’s made up her own language; I don’t know where she comes up with these things.
Before I hit the road I managed to squeeze in a little shoot with a friend of mine. You can visit her at: http://www.halfpastwonderful.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/halfpastwonderful
She was a doll to shoot in the middle of a blizzard. My hands and feet were like ice blocks, so I can just imagine how cold she was, but you won’t hear a peep out of this girl. Nothing but positivity radiates from this champion of a woman.
Okay so I have a little obsession with jackets and boots; out of all the clothing I own these are things I fawn over EVERY time I am in a store. My Hunter Boots proved themselves useful however: they’ve officially past the East Coast test. When everything else was soaking wet, my feet were still dry as a bone. 
My toggle jacket seemed apropos given that we shot on a dock in a community that is heavily influenced by fisheries and trades. I wonder what the fishermen thought about my gum boots; maybe they’d want a pair for the boat. Did you know Hunter supplied boots during the war? and that they have the royal seal from the Queen?
Hope you had a great holiday blog readers,

    Neat fact about the Royal Seal! I also learned that Quality Street was approved by the Queen as well (her seal was on the bottom of the Quality Street Can)

    I always feel a little low after Christmas – I hate that all the excitement is gone so this year I aim to plan plenty of winter-y things to look forward to.

    You have just persuaded me to go out and get some of the Hunter boots. The NYC rain can be torrential at times, and my feet always end up soaked through. Time to invest!

    Have a lovely NYE!

    Sarah, you have to get the Hunter Boot socks!! They look like a novelty item, but really they are very functional. They keep your feet super warm, and prevent your toes from going numb. The rubber boots don't provide a lot of warmth with only a thin layer between your feet and the snow, so it would totally recommend the liners. Also they come in an array of colours and styles.
    PS: jealous you're able to purchase your boots in NYC there are SO many great styles at Bloomingdales.
