Lipstick Effect

NEW YEAR RESOLUTION #1
New year, new you, new liver, and time for the dreaded detox. In fact a reunion with an old friend on Saturday involved eight 30 somethings sitting around a pub table sipping on peppermint teas, the most indulgent thing on the table was an Earl Grey tea. 
January is melancholy enough with long dark nights, taking down all those cheerful sparkling lights and glorious christmas tree, without adding further suffering by committing to deprivation. Instead, I’m sticking to some more long term plans…invest pieces for my wardrobe over quick fixes (yes, we’ll get back to this), making better choices in my diet and exercise and finishing some of the major projects I’ve started this year. I’m going to become a “completer finisher”. 
But we must always start at the beginning, and herein let’s start with feeding the mind. I’m going to get back to some books, that I’ve had sitting there, something old, something new, something borrowed - and all rich and food for thought.
