I can’t believe it’s taken me over 2 years since the closure of my boutique to don this Alldressedup coat. I’d been saving it as I was planning to gift it to a friend when the right opportunity arose, but being black, it resided to the Noir section of my wardrobe, a large expanse of darkness where garments become inextinguishable unless you comb them. The coat features a bustle-like peplum and 2 very deep and cosy pockets (my favourite features for any garment), the perfect disguise for a growing baby bump :) It has no buttons, is held together magically with disguised magnets. Being waterproof and boasting an adjustable waist tie, I think it just may tick all the right boxes as my New York travel coat!

As you know, I’m currently working almost more than full time at the vet clinics. People are always amazed by my boundless energy. “How come I never see you tired?”, friends and colleagues routinely ask me. I can only thank God for it as I’ve always been like this as long as I can remember. Being tired or lazy were never options in our household, so I must thank my parents for setting such incredible examples for me. I have to admit though, lately I’ve been defeated. The word ‘tired’ has finally entered my vernacular. Something has sabotaged my recharge button.
And that something is an addictive iPad game called Kingdom Rush. I’m not a gamer, but I’d happily dedicate the most precious times of my day to this alternative world of warring towers and monster enemies (they’re so cute!). I honestly think that MiniKee may have even memorized the theme song by now in vivo… But the other day, I experienced an epiphany:”Late nights are the enemies of early risers.” I’m so thankful that I still had a sprinkling of self control left to delete Kingdom Rush. I think Sleep and I will get along just fine.
