Cabin Fever.

December 3, 2010
At this stage, looking out the window at a housing estate that looks as if it were encased within a snowdome, I’m pretty much convinced we’re enduring the coming of next ice age. Still, with cabin fever having set in (I now conduct lengthy conversations with myself on the merits of wholegrain pasta…wtf!?), I’m prepping myself to make the 30 minute walk trudge down to the Luas in order to visit a city-centre friend for a day filled with premature Christmas baking, much mulled wine indulgence, and maybe even going out depending on how much Dutch Courage we gain…

^ Apologies for the lack of lighting – apocalyptic skies don’t really lend themselves to outdoor shoots. Wearing: black donkey jacket by Dexter Wong for Topman LENS, mulberry cable-knit crewneck from New Look, slim grey jeans with side panel from Bershka, black leather military boots by Grafters. (Oh, and I’ll probably be throwing on a black snood from Penneys, too, just in case you thought me raving for baring my neck…)

PS. If I don’t update within the next few days, you wouldn’t mind sending a rescue team, would you?

    Ahhh these are wonderful! I love the colour of your jumper, cheers me right up! Sorry we couldn't do a shoot today, but let's face it, we'd probably die!A x

    Is that house in the last photo abandoned? It looks kinda boarded up, and a bit derelict (maybe it's just the snow), but it warrants a snoop around!-Stephen

    Ali: Ta! And, yes, it'd undoubtedly prove fatal. 'Til next week!Stephen: Yea, it's Ballintyre Hall, which I think IS on the market but hasn't been purchased (unsurprisingly, considering it's sat right in the middle of a housing estate). So in there if I win the Lotto…C.
