This is not about weddings or makeup, this is just about me and new work life over here. Winter is very different here in Sydney. I am from Germany, where winters get bitter cold and the atmosphere completely changes. Although it's chilly now and I do turn the gas heater on in the evenings, drink tea, eat pumpkin soup and sleep with hot water bottles on my feet, during the day it still feels nice enough to sit outdoors in a cafe. Some trees loose their leaves, but the city is still very green even now. I wear shoes without socks even in winter! It's amazing. My favourite new little "winter" shoes are pretty ballerinas, from House of Harlow 1960. A little treat to make Winter time more fun. I think I can safely say, I like Winter over here, a completely new experience for me.
While weddings are slowing down in June and July over here, there is plenty of admin to catch up on for me. My beloved laptop just died, and after being a little confused and upset for a week, I am now all set up with a spanking new iMac, which makes me feel all settled. Winter work consists of plenty of paperwork, admin and business planning. At the same time also of realizing my own makeup projects for my portfolio and collaborating with some wonderful people. While most people in the industry are taking time off, I take time to settle in and organize myself for the busy season ahead.
I am only now finally getting into a bit of a routine in my new Sydney life and feels very good.
