With all this time its hard to not to just relax and be Zen. It is amazing. It must sound weird for me to say that, but for someone who normally craves the busy fast paced life I'm finally just enjoying just letting time pass. I spent my week visiting my local library (on numerous occasions) taking home enough books to stock a mini library. I honestly haven't read a book cover to cover in ages. I do love love love a good book, and now I have 11 to keep me company... well till July 4th when they're all due. Being all zen my musical mood has changed, having light jazz and classic easy tunes being the most played this week. There is something about it, just playing in the background that's soothing and not seizure inducing. I'm beginning to realise I'm starting to sound like some converted hippie or something.. I swear I'm still me. Just more Zen.

I got a few cool goodies in the mail last week, all to be seen very soon (so watch this space). I also spent my time experimenting with some random clothing projects. I've pricked and dyed my fingers too many times to count. But the payoff was worth it in the end. I dragged the wife-ies to see Friends with Kids on Cheap Tuesday. I've got to say I was happy it was Cheap Tuesday as the movie well.. it didn't really want me to have kids.. and it didn't really make me laugh. Ah well again it was cheap to see it. When Friday came I went to a Fashion Exhibition event for Box Hill Institute. A lot of great designs there (I want a few in my wardrobe now)

This week (Week 3 of my sabbatical) I'm still Zen-ing but just with a tad more focus. I'm going to go through all this is London Collections: Men (which I'm gutted I didn't go, but it's all about the 'money money money!'...or lack there of) I can't wait to see all the new debut menswear collections as well as collections by Topman, Christopher Kane, Paul Smith. Basically everything. 

One.
They say One is the loneliest number. I say its the most courageous and proud. 
The need for more is simply icing on the cake, the cherry on top of that dessert. 
Having a strong sense of who you are and confidence in your own skin makes being One fine.
Being your own number One. Taking care of yourself, striving for your best.
Reaching it all... Being One
