Fallen Leaves and Leopard Print

Hi everybody! It feels so good to be blogging again, after an unexpected break from it this month. I'm so happy to be back and sharing these pictures with you. Winter has been hard for me, as it always is, and since the temperatures have dropped, I find myself reluctant and sometimes fearful of going outside, except for work-related and official things, and for the sake of getting my exercise. My hands get numb and painful at times, on account of Raynaud's Syndrome, and the cold feels very acute. However, I ventured outside for a photo session yesterday, and although it was freezing, it was bright and sunny, and the light was lovely. I donned my leopard print furry coat, which you may remember from early this year, paired with dark denim, and my blue heart print jumper with a peter pan collar, which you can see more clearly below. If you're in the market for a leopard print furry coat, I've given a link to a similar one at the end of this post.

I was happy to capture these images and do something creative. I didn't want to cancel life just because I have a hard time dealing with winter! Sometimes when we have health conditions, we can get in the habit of thinking of ourselves as less capable than we are, and lately I've been trying to resist this way of thinking.

Do any of you have similar afflictions to overcome during winter? Have you found any helpful ways of staying positive and dealing with seasonal lows? Please let me know in the comments below!

Thank you for dropping by!

Lots of love Saba xx
