Hello my beloved readership,
nature-loving like the Scandinavian. This is how we are this autumn with the focus on the colours. Meet another trend colour: brown all over.
“Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.”, we all know this old saying our elders – grandparents and parents – kept preaching us. Now that I have told you to set your priorities in my last article here – because wanting it all at once can really stress you out and affects the results of your to dos in a negative way – it seems ironical to introduce the article with such a saying/sentence. Because with many to dos and achievements during one period even the smallest motions seem tiring, down-pulling and hard to do. But I have learned to progress during the progress and overcome myself to kick my butt and simply get those simple touches done immediately once they catch my eyes instead of ignoring them and keeping them for later or what is worse for tomorrow. I realized for myself that it takes O N E second (plus/minus a few) to pick up something, put something from one place to the other or even tidy up a small place and many more of such simple touches even if you have children, work from home office or get ready for an appointment. Such simple touches do not need to push yourself too hard because once they are used to be left they are only going to leave more work for tomorrow that will doubtlessly break you down emotionally (especially when something worse will come in between – I do not wish it for you but it happened to me recently that I almost joked that God has completely misunderstood me with some complaints so that one misfortune haunted the other). Therefore it is better to do some little things immediately instead of leaving them for tomorrow. Because last but not least you never know what is going to happen tomorrow – or even in the next hour – you never know where the lightning is going to hit you and how quickly the problem might be solved. So you better do the things today than leaving them for tomorrow because in the end what is done is done which you are going to profit from tomorrow or in that infamous next hour.

Playing with Shades of Brown
Brown has always been one of the fashion colours I have felt most attracted to already when I was very young. I kind of find this rather calm colour very elegant and noble. My mother however has generally advised me against brown if there have been alternative colours during our numerous shopping tours as she felt of this colour to rather be something for elder women. This is how it happened to be that I did not really have many clothes let go accessories in brown. Just by now when I have become fashionably and financially independent I have started systematically integrate brown in my closet which is why I have many different things in brown. These velours leggings I have bought very recently against my attitude without any discount just be able to complete a partly fashionable and comfortable, suitable for an advanced stage of pregnancy with a big baby bump brown all over look (the anger was even bigger when I saw them -50 per cent off on sale not even one month later). For this occasion I could as well wear the longtop with lace I have bought many years ago in brown and purple – my favorite colour and also one I would like to integrate more in my closet – as well as the short blouse I was gifted with for my birthday. I thanked the fiancée of my best male friend, who meanwhile counts to my close friends too, for thinking that I could wear such a blouse. I found it very risqué at the first sight as I thought you would need to wear it in a bare midriff look. After all the trend seemed to go that direction with cropped tops and high-waist bottoms. But luckily my friend schooled me better to wear it with a top underneath so that I decided to wear it for a baby bump shooting and here I am now.
