Hey Ragers and Ragettes! It’s a cold, wet, wild windy day here. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!! It’s the sort of day that I could snuggle up in my onesie, sip a hot cup of peppermint tea and watch a good film. It’s freezing!!! Today I’m wearing my turquoise sweater, bootcut jeans and my cowboy boots with extra thick socks. It’s that sort of day.
With everything that has been happening, a lot of stuff in my life has slipped: my healthy eating, my gym workouts (I have a seriously bloated tummy now!), putting my makeup on and even doing my hair. Overwhelmed is an understatement. And Simon is serious about getting engaged which I don’t know how I feel about that.
So I am trying to find coping skills to distract myself. I have been immersing myself in getting my wardrobe ready for the new job and planning my routines.
I find comfort in doing this. I have bought some nice pieces for the new job:
2 plain white blouses
2 white blouses with black detailing
A black blouse
A Red blouse
A grey and black pussy bow blouse
A black Pencil skirt
A nude pencil skirt
A grey pencil skirt
A black and white printed Pencil skirt
A black with a floral pattern pencil skirt
Black wide leg trousers
Black fitted blazer
So I have the start of a good work wardrobe. I have a few nice dresses too. Now I will need to look for some nice classy black earrings and other accessories (Tights, and other bits....I might actually go for suspender belts and stockings....hmmmmmmm) and I have a wish list for a few more pairs of trousers and maybe another 2 blazers (a nude one and a grey one?) I am struggling to find tan bootcut trousers. As I have a curvy body, cigarette pants or skinny taper legged trousers do not fit my shape. At all. I found some awesome flares but they are not workwear. They are denim. I have some tan work trousers (that I didn’t have the heart to throw out) that are 2 sizes down when I used to be smaller. So I suppose I am going to have to work my butt off and get back into them!
I must admit, I love work wear. I wear jeans and sweater to work and most days I cannot be arsed washing my face or putting make up on because what is the point? I have no one to look nice for. And I love dressing up. Hopefully with this job there will be work night’s out and I can start dressing up again.
Now with my new job, I have to take pride in my appearance. I have bought some mini toiletries for when I go to the gym in the morning. I feel like I have a new lease of life.
So I purchased some of those space bag things (you fold your stuff up and put it in the bag and suck the air out with a vacuum) as my wardrobe is in a state and so is my chest of drawers!! So this weekend I will be sorting them out and putting old clothes on eBay.
I have also been reconsidering getting my Betty Bob back. I don’t know why. It could be the gym thing. I don’t know. I have been going through the pros and cons and I am very much undecided. I love my extensions but I don’t know…
These are all wonderful distractions from what is going on in front of me. I need to face these things but I don’t know how to. I feel right now so many things. I am so confused. And this is how I deal with it. I clean, organise and get rid of old stuff.
I wish that I knew how I felt, what I want and how to deal with this. Half of me wants to pack up my stuff and run away. Maybe that is the answer.
So until next time Ragers and Ragettes, keep your head and standards high and your heels even higher!
Lots of Love
The Fabulous Betty Rage xxxxx
