Con-fuschia Says… Pun Intended

Hi Peaches! Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you have to be drab, therefore I did a mini-shoot over the weekend – just to get out of the house – or let me be honest and say… Out of my PJ’s. It’s cold and I don’t have much news to share so I thought it might be fun to share some wisdom straight from Confucius!

One of his teachings was a variant of the Golden Rule, sometimes called the “Silver Rule“:

“What you do not wish for yourself, do not do to others.”

“Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.”

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”

 

Deatails

Knit – ZARA
Jeans – Topshop
Ankle Boots – The Fix (ZA)

Always strive to be a better version of yourself than yesterday!

P.S. I’ll be striving to tackle this goal in the gym! Hahahahaha

When Summer’’s End is Nighing…

Girl looking over shoulder wearing floral dress with bow detail from Zara

When summer’s end is nighing
And skies at evening cloud,
I muse on change and fortune
And all the feats I vowed
When I was young and proud.

The weathercock at sunset
Would lose the slanted ray,
And I would climb the beacon
That looked to Wales away
And saw the last of day.

From hill and cloud and heaven
The hues of evening died;
Night welled through lane and hollow
And hushed the countryside,
But I had youth and pride.

And I with earth and nightfall
In converse high would stand,
Late, till the west was ashen
And darkness hard at hand,
And the eye lost the land.

The year might age, and cloudy
The lessening day might close,
But air of other summers
Breathed from beyond the snows,
And I had hope of those.

They came and were and are not
And come no more anew;
And all the years and seasons
That ever can ensue
Must now be worse and few.

So here’s an end of roaming
On eves when autumn nighs:
The ear too fondly listens
For summer’s parting sighs,
And then the heart replies.

by A. E. Housman
