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 (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.
