I don't wanna sound all cliche and shit, but seriously, winter is coming. And if last winter was anything to go by, we're in for a freezer this year. You know, the Nile has frozen twice in history and I wouldn't be surprised if this winter would make it the third.
One of the many good things about living in Egypt is the amount of sun a year we get, which is good cuz seriously, I hate feeling cold. The thing is, i swear, winter here feels colder than in the UK. Its a different kind of cold. That's what I've been telling everyone who looks at me like i'm crazy wearing long sleeve tops and massive cardies/ jackets. They're all like, 'your British, you should be used to it!' which i tell them a. I hate being even slightly cold and b. its a different kinda cold. UK, its like a crisp, fresh coldness on your skin. But here its different, like a desert cold, that gets right into your bones. PLUS in UK you can go back home to your cozy, central heated home. Here, the buildings are designed to keep the cool IN. So you'll find its actually warmer outside than inside.
So anyway, that brings me to where I am right now. Sitting at work, at my desk, while clutching a scented candle for the only source of warmth. Also wishing that I had all the pieces in the below pix.
Creatures of Comfort
Temperley of London - those boots!
