But it was so cold here in Sydney this morning, I almost froze my arms off when I went running this morning. And I was wearing gloves.
|A scarf and polar fleece in spring?|
Fortunately, my arms survived. I warmed them up under the shower, rugged them up again and went down the road to get my coffee. There's nothing like a hot cup of coffee to warm your hands in the morning.
I was thankful for both of my arms when I got home from coffee because I needed them to open my jar of Guylian Praline Spread (aka gold label Nutella) and to turn the pages of InStyle.
The Guylian spread is delicious. It's not too fancy for fruit toast and would also be perfect for home made hazelnut croissants. It's $15 for a jar and if you have self control, a little does go a long way.
InStyle costs $8.20 these days and a little of it goes a long way too. I was over the moon that Blake Lively was this month's cover girl because I love Blake's clothes and have a very positive feeling about her and Leonardo DiCaprio. The couple were recently in Sydney in fact. I think Leonardo may still be here filming The Great Gatsby. Most of all I love that Blake looks like Blake. I recognized her face the moment I saw the cover and did not mistake her for the Duchess of Cambridge, which happened last month with the Katie Holmes cover.
There's a whole heap of stuff about Colour in the magazine this month. mostly in the skinny jeans or baggy trousers departments. But I'm still going with the cover image. It will be my fashion mission this month to find a navy jacket like Blake's Chanel. I'm thinking a trip to Zara may be on the cards.
It's not that I've turned my back on colour, I just prefer it poolside, as my post swim snack. I went for a swim yesterday and because I had all the time in the world, had my snack at the cafe next to the pool. I did have to drag myself there in the wind and rain (and after a big night out the night before) but those laps always do wonders for my spirits. There's also that whole body unwind that I feel when I step out of the pool and get dressed again. It's right up there with holding that hot cup of coffee to warm your hands. It's invigorating.
And on that note, I'd best be off.
Take care everyone and I hope you've got a great day planned.
