Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!I decided to start 2009 as I mean to go on so I took myself on what turned out to be a cold and blustery walk at Slapton Sands.

I wore the very popular boot of the moment... ugg! Some baggy combat trousers, a stripy long-sleeved t-shirt, my pineapple zipped hoody and my coat which didn't really go with the rest of the outfit in my opinion so I took it off for some of the pictures.

I tried to go very minimalist with my makeup, unfortunately I did have to have full foundation to cover stubble which was a bit of a shame but needs must, I put a little eyeliner on the waterline under my eyes, a small amount of mascara on my upper eyelashes and clear lip gloss. That's it! It's amazing the difference such a small amount of makeup (bar the foundation) can make, as I'm sure you can tell I'm very pleased with myself.

Once at the beach I got my camera out of the boot, deciding to leave the tripod behind and embarked on my leisurely stroll up the beach finding it's quite an art walking in a feminine way on a beach, this took a minute or so to work out.

I love sitting and looking at the sea - especially when it's rough - it's such an amazing and powerful thing that must be respected, I could go on but I shall spare you.

Looking forward to 2009
Looking forward to 2009 (The larger version didn't fit so it had to be this wee size)

Sea air + wind + wig = lots of tangles! I'm not sure it will ever be the same although I think it was semi-worth it for the first time out in 2009 (I need to make up for 2008), the first of many I hope.

Happy New Year indeed! I think there's something special about beach walking during the winter. Sure, it's cold, but the sea's so different away from the warm sunny summer sky.

Uggs. Trannys in flat boots. What is the world coming to? :)

I love these photos! And as nearly as I can tell you may think it minimal, but the effect is perfect!

I remember walking the beach in San Diego when it was cold many years ago. It was fantastic not only because of the sky and the sea, but mine were the only footprints those mornings as well!

May 2009 be as kind as you are lovely!

Stopped by to see what you were up to and my heart skipped a few beats when your page was blank...I think if these photos disappeared I might shed more than a few tears!

I was very happy to click January and have them return!
