Helloooo everybody! I do hope you had a nice weekend.
I decided to wear beige to match my walls and carpeting. I like beige-it is like a primed canvas ready to be changed-up at a moment's notice...and it shows less dirt than white! I tend to accessorise beige with gold, but silver works too. I know beige has come to mean, "boring" but I do find it a good starting place for clothes that have no other match. I particularly like it with brown, as I've done here.

That was Saturday. By Sunday, I still hadn't snapped-out of my mood for dull colours.
This lovely little brooch hardly gets worn as most of my outfits seem to demand bolder pieces. I've been making an effort to wear pieces that have been languishing in my collection. I can't even remember the last time I wore this. It is possible I haven't in all the years I have this blog. Ooops! I need to do better with that.
These porcelain earrings are so delicate they get their own padded box for storage. I'm so concerned I might damage them that I rarely wear them. The screw-back fastenings aren't the most secure, and at some point I really ought to replace them with clips-I'm sure I'd wear them loads more if I did.
I purchased an eyebrow marker by NYX that works like a felt-tip with a very precise point. I am IN LOVE! No more smeared eyebrow crayon. No more messy gels and powders. Sakes alive, I'm lucky to be living in this age of scientific advancements. Oh sure, discoveries about gravitational waves are important, but they don't give you perfect brow definition. Did you ever see the brows on that Einstein fellow?

There's a bloom on my gardenia tree in the sunny corner of the living room. Surely that's a good sign that spring is just around the corner.
Have a lovely week.
That's Right, Einstein
