it's a new dawn, it's a new day

Happy new year! 2014 so far has been pretty brilliant to me. I have high hopes for the future.

I haven't been posting much lately because Daisy (my camera) has been having some time off. And by that I mean I'm too busy running around the place sans camera to formulate enough content for a post. But I'm feeling thoughtful tonight, so here we go.

It seems kind of dumb to say "this is going to be my year" because (a) what does that even mean? and (b) it just sets you up for disappointment. And it also seems kind of dumb to think of a new year as a fresh start, because come on, how is it any different? But you know what? Screw all of that. I'm happy with the new year. Shit is going so well for me. Nothing has been easy lately, but I feel more like myself than I ever have. And if that's a long way away from the person I thought I'd be, well so be it. It is what it is.

Don't ever lose sight of yourself. I think that is one of the biggest life lessons I have learnt so far. It's incredibly easy to get wrapped up in other people and forget yourself, but that can turn sour really quickly. Take care of yourselves, guys.

I'm being deep and thoughtful now, but fear not, I have many narcissistic shopping related posts in the works. Bet you can't wait.

Song is "Kettering" by The Antlers and it's making me ridiculously nostalgic right now.



  1. Happy new year! I'm sure it'll be a great one for you =)
    Nice song btw!

  2. happy new year dinahsaurrr! I find that rather than setting up goals and expectations for the new year and putting effort into giving it all you have, its a lot more fun not expecting anything at all and being surprised by what the year gives you. Hope 2014 is great for you!


  3. That's certainly very insightful. I agree, on the point that one should always look out for themselves, because well, quite simply we're the only ones who are going to be there for ourselves for the rest of our lives. I like deep Kat, she takes matters into her own hands and sets perspective.
    Anywho, I'm looking forward to more posts. Happy 2014 to you! <3
