Back on my feet again!





Hello again! How lovely it is to be back. My previous post was a brave effort by me to get back on track, but I ended up being poorly for another five days in response to the Covid19 booster. All in all I've lost 12 days with today being the first one where I felt well enough to apply make-up and get dressed for some blog photos. Nothing too fancy as you can see, but a wonderful burst of colour therapy was just what I needed. 






My dear friend Tiggy kindly passed on this gorgeous orange sweater to me recently and I've been making plans on how to wear it ever since. The ribbed knit sloppy joe is perfect for weekend wear, but works really well too over a dress to add a lovely pop of colour (this to come on the blog soon).




As orange is the midway colour between red and yellow it seemed like the perfect pairing to put the sweater with my lovely tartan jeans. These were unearthed just yesterday when I tackled the seasonal clothes change over. As my energy levels are still pretty low I kept things to the bare minimum and have got from A to B without too much fuss. 




Today's footwear comes from another friend, Ben, who sent these to me last year but this is the first of them making their way onto the blog. The brand is Geox, that clever Italian brand which delivers dry feet through their innovative mix of waterproof and breathable insoles. They're also very comfortable too!



 
Both my rings are pre-loved. My bejewelled turtle handbag is a few years old now and came from a tiny boutique in St Andrews. 

 


It was a stoke of luck that I'd recently been gifted this Smart Temperature duvet cover from The Fine Bedding Company. As I've said, I suffered terrible fever and sweats since my booster and was so grateful to have this skin sensitive bedding to help make me more comfortable. The fabric is 100% cotton, known for it's cool touch and in addition it has been treated to respond to a rise in body temperature. The techno bit is beyond me but I've linked through to their info page here.




Not only useful during my recent fever, but I know that the bedding will be a great relief from my never ending night sweats as I attempt to break the record for the world's longest menopause... If this is a problem for you too then I urge you to look into this new wave of temperature control bedding as it might just help make your nights more comfortable. 




The bedding launders like any other cotton which for some may be a downside as it creases badly, but I for one, don't mind a bit of ironing to get it crisp and smooth ready for another good night's sleep. The Fine Bedding Company have found a niche in the market with this range and it extends all the way to pillows, duvet and mattress covers to offer full temperature control. I'm about to replace our old duvet with their Breathe Duvet to compliment the existing duvet cover - in fact, I wish I'd done that a couple of weeks ago before I was ill!




Another happy find in my clothes changeover was my teddy faux fur coat. Roll on winter - I'm ready for you now!


The Find Bedding Company duvet cover has been gifted to me, but all comments are mine.

  1. Hi Anna,
    lucky, that you at least are feeling better after your vaccination. Now, after reading about your last 12 days, I'm a bit in worry about our "Booster-Vaccination", which is dated for coming wednesday. Hm, I hope the best.

    Your outfit is mood brightning as ever!
    Hugs from Cologne,

    1. Hi Susa. I can see by the date that you posted this that you must have had your booster by now. Hopefully you'll be lucky and not have any side effects as I did.

      Take care

  2. Oof, sounds like the booster knocked you for a loop. Better to be boosted than COVID, though!

    Love those trousers, and they look smashing with the orange jumper and the teddy sweater. I'm in plaid today too! Great minds, etc.

    Big hugs to you, Anna! I hope you're feeling better.

  5. Good that you’re feeling better Anna, sounds like you had a real, adverse reaction to the jab.
    I’m still waiting to have mine.

    Love the trousers and orange sloppy Joe, the colours are a real Wow together.

    I have the same bag in brown. Mine was from eBay. Love it! x

  7. Eeek, sorry that the Booster messed with you. I am glad to hear that you are coming out of it now but how frustrating to be hit so badly by it.
    Your outfit is really cheerful. The tartan trousers are brilliant and both items from your friends are lovely and very Anna-esque!xx
