Cold Comfort // New In

Despite my power-of-vegan-health-claims, the cold front here has finally given me a comeuppance. So for the time being, I'm stuck in bed, between endless packs of kleenex & literary diversions. 

There are several things brightening my day however; so I thought I'd share them with you! The primary one was the arrival of my first c/o item from - a lovely vibrant batwing top. To my delight it is the perfect shade of orange for Spring. As soon as my cold passes I'll be sure to put up an outfit post including it. I've shown it above with my H&M bangle which is no longer MIA (it was in one of my jewellery boxes all along, silly me); & hung below, to give you an idea of it's general shape. 

Delicious vegan zucchini brownies a la Mom. 

An eclectic pile of bedside books to keep me entertained + The Devil Wears Prada; one of my favourite 'sick day' movies.

Last but not least, Zen providing kitty company. 

I'd love to pass the entire day browsing blogs & responding to comments, but we unfortunately only have dial-up at home & it takes an average 40 minutes to read & respond to a single blog post (positively medieval I know). As soon as I'm able to leave the house I'll be back to my usual commenting frenzy, promise!

What are your sick day comforts? 


  1. That orange top is gorgeous! And your pile of books looks just about perfect for a sick day. Feel better! xo

  2. Love that top! And those brownies look delicious!

  3. Ohh sorry to hear about the internet speed - sometimes I face same problems at home too even though this connection is supposed to me the best (as if, keeps disconnecting while downloading etc.)
    But that top is great and I'm glad you found the bracelet - it's really cool!

    Take care ! <3

  8. Aw, hope you feel better soon girl! That sucks.
    Hmm, for sick days I like making hot tea, cuddling up on the couch with a snuggly blanket and have myself a movie marathon. Either that or I read, which lately, I have no time for! I used to be such a little bookworm.
    Ah well.
    And congrats on that first c/o item! You picked out a gorgeous top <3
    I can't wait to see you rock it :)
