I'm Free

The Day has come and gone, and I'm officially done with my job. I'm happy even though I don't think that it sank in yet. It's my first day at home (and I was working in the morning and will be later in the day - doing my other job, translation).
Yesterday I wore this bright top to celebrate my impending freedom. Plus white cropped pants and shoes that I've had for about 7 years. They used to be so comfy but not anymore. I suspect it's my feet that are changing. Too bad.

Anyway, I love this top. It's flattering and has all kinds of colors that you can play up in the accessories. Like bits of navy and the navy bag.

Using my "last day at the mall" excuse I did some shopping. Originally I had to buy blue jeans for my kid. I got the jeans at H&M but didn't stop there.

First I got this Viva Glam Nicky lipstick. It's pink, what can I say. Bright pink. And I love it.

This skirt from H&M goes with the lipstick. What is this color? Salmon? Close enough. Just a plain pencil skirt to wear with almost all kinds of colors.

H&M restocked the turquoise ring that I was looking for. So I snatched it. Why? Because it's cheap, and I have turquoise in gold but not in silver. Now I have both.

And the last purchase was this fucshia blazer. I saw it on Marie's blog and just had to have it. It fits me differently, a bit more snug, but if I'd bought a larger size, it would have ballooned at the back. I never button my blazers so I figured I could get away with size 42. I think it's 10 or 12 american, but the conversion table I found online says it's 8. No way I'm size 8!

So now I have even more stuff to wear and I'm at home in my shorts and a tank-top, clicking away. Translated a bunch already and gearing up for a certain consierge medicine show tonight. It's good to know that I can still "go out into the noisy world" when I feel like it, but for now I'm content with being at home where it's quiet, no phones, no demanding clients. Oh, I'm so done with direct customer service, at least for now, and hopefully for a long time.


  1. Jealous of all those good buys, the lippie and skirt are awesome. Love the jacket but i own so many i cant possibly covet any more! Good luck with your new ventures! L xx

    1. Oh I know what you mean. I love jackets and have lots of them. But with the weather in Israel you never have an opportunity to wear them all. And yet I keep buying them in all colors possible...

  2. Great top and I love all the bits you bought especially the ring x

    1. Thank you :) I've been stalking this ring since my colleague bought it four months ago. Sometimes I only want something after seeing it on someone in real life...
